Great galloping snack cakes! It's been 3 bloody months! Where the hell have I been?!?
Well, the truth of the matter is I've been pretty much nowhere. Nothing awful, thankfully. Although we did just lose our beloved cat Knickerbockers after nigh 19 years. She was a wonderful and beloved cat and will be missed. Her life of general awesomeness reaffirms my solid belief in rescuing your pets rather than purchasing them.
But enough of the griefly topics. The top end of the year has also seens some pleasantness as well. I've got my pepper babies a-gestating on top of the fridge! This year I'm going for a full rack of 54 fatali peppers along with 18 trinidad scorpions, 9 bhut jalokias and another 9 of the awesome mystery tutti fruitti peppers we had last year. I'm hoping that I might be able to get a small plot of land to experiment with a larger scale growing operation in soil. Maybe I'll even have enough to sell through a Farmers Market vendor. Or, barring that, I'll be looking to dry tons of 'em and have all the chili powder a boy could dream for.
Of course, the Rogue Festival has just passed for the year. Alas, I was still too broke to attend any of the wonderful shows this year. But I did at least get the opportunity to film 2 performances of The Bright Side of Total Doom for Scurvy the Prophet for Profit at Veni Vidi Vici. This year he shed his Captains coat and cast of beloved mutants for a more intimate one man performance of his innovative self actualization program to smile your way through the coming apocalypse. Truly an innovative method of finding the joy in everyday suffering. It's more of a thinking mans comedy, while your sides are splitting from the absurdist humor, you're also left pondering why we participate in the puppetry of the modern world.
And the most recent big event though has to be our attendance at Wondercon 2012 in Anaheim! A good friend of the blog was able to secure us a gig pimping t-shirts for Geekdomwear.com at their booth. Which, by the by, I would like to thank them again for the opportunity and all of the fun that came with it. And being that it was a whole weekend of thrills and spills it deserves it's own little post. So, methinks that's what we'll do....and not three months later
