Kyle’s adventures at FanX 2015

The Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience ran this past January 29 through the 31st at the Salt Palace Convention Center.  This FanX was different from last year in several ways.  The fist being that it was about half the size, with ticket sales limited to about 50,000, and a reduction in guests and panels, […]

Salt Lake Comic Con is a serious convention for serious geeks.

Salt Lake Comic Con 2014 has ended, some of us have mostly recovered, and the spoils of the weekend are being sorted and posted.  Some of us made new friends, some realized countless hours in a hot crowded building has an overall negative impact to general body odor, and some of us found reminders that […]

Doctors 6 Colin Baker, and 8 Paul Mcgann were in Salt Lake City for Salt Lake Comic Con, and this is one Doctor Who geek that was very excited to have the opportunity to meet them, and hear them talk about their time in the TARDIS.  Before I had the chance to meet with and […]

SLCC 2014: Sharknado and Ian Ziering

SLCC 2014: Sharknado and Ian Ziering

I’ll be honest. I’ve never watched Sharknado. Or Sharknado 2. I HAVE seen plenty of Ian Ziering in my life though. You see, my older sister had this thing for 90210 and the show that aired after it called Party of 5. So much so that she would have friends over for “905 Nights” and […]

SLCC 2014 – Cary Elwes Panel

I’ve finally figured out what I’ve been doing wrong when it comes to conventions over the last couple of years. For some reason I wasn’t have as much fun as others seemed to be having. Turns out I was doing it so horribly wrong. You actually have to attend panels in order to have a […]

Mick Garris Talks About His Career and Previous Issues With Fear Itself

I chose not to come back to the show and this was before it ever started shooting. So all the rewrites were done after that— in a non-union way. I couldn’t approve of that as a member of the writers guild. I saw the notes come in from network and notes come in from studio. […]

Introducing Evermore Park

Introducing Evermore Park

At this year’s Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Xperience a new, the first, Fantasy Adventure Park was introduced.  Evermore Park, to be built in Pleasant Grove Utah is genuinely unique, and probably the single most ambitious project of its kind I have ever seen or heard about.  The only parallel would have been when Walt […]

SLCC FanX KidCon was fantastic.

SLCC FanX KidCon was fantastic.

Day two of Salt Lake Comic Con’s Fan Xperience started early, which for us grown up types is fine.  However, for the miniature humans we call children the excitement of getting to skip school for the day is somewhat mitigated by waking up around 6am.  The only thing that really helps a serious case of […]
