“Ready Player One” boots up…

Need to open this quick little review of “Ready Player One” with two things: *  First, I am quite possibly the world’s worst video gamer. I have the hand/eye coordination of a drunken toddler and I know next to nothing about video games, online gaming, virtual reality, etc.   Driving in often-thick California traffic is…

WonderCon 2018 is a wrap…

What a weekend! My wife and I (along with our friend/longtime-partner-in-crime Ali) spent last Friday afternoon through Sunday evening in the fair city of Anaheim (a half hour away at maximum warp and home of Disneyland) attending WonderCon.  I’ve heard WonderCon described as ‘Comic Con Jr.’  It has many of the same elements that comprise Comic Con…

Remembering Richard Hatch, and Battlestar Galactica…
