My Mostly Harmless Musings

Once you have solved all the easy problems you have solved the hard problem.
-Daniel Dennett

Welcome back to my musings. First off I'd like to wish everyone a Happy FeastDay of St. Arnold of Soissons. You don't know what I mean? It's my favorite July holiday where we all drink a draft to honor the patron saint of beer. 

Here is the question of the Month: what disease did a cured ham actually have?

And now I would like to share a graphic experience with everyone. I promise to be gentle.

I took the family to Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con and all I got was...(fun)

The best part is Matt Smith took Seth's Sonic Screwdriver and flicked it open like a pro (which technically he is). He even autographed the fez!

Who is this Michelle you speak of? She wants me to sign what?

I think Seth wore Gwendolyn out. She looks little peaked. To set the record straight, I can Walk with the Dead. I usually choose not to.

It's official, Gwendolyn loves Cosplay.
It's not a good idea to make Lou Ferrigno mad.

Christopher Lloyd to Gwendolyn:
Take you for a ride in it?
I don't know what you're talking about. I don't see any car.

Really? You can't see it?


Karen Gillan to Gwendolyn:
Forget the DeLorean cutey, I know of a crazy blue box that is much more fun to travel in.

This year’s Philadelphia Writers' Conference rocked. The fact I say that every year doesn’t make me wrong. I direct you Jim Knipp's recap of all the fun and learning.The workshops and their leaders were (and are) impressive. The evening shenanigans were not my fault! I think.

Note: the writers conference was held at the same time as Beer Week.

Wake me for the next post.

That's it for this post. Stay tuned for more.

My Mostly Harmless Musings

 From the file of famous (last) quotes 

We don't like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out.
-- Decca Recording Co. rejecting the Beatles, 1962.

I'm sorry for the (relative) lateness of my ramblings. I'm also sorry this is going to be a short post. I promise more soon. Anyway, let the ride begin. In a world driven by TMZ news cycles. This video was inevitably going to be to leaked to the public.

These are the June events I will be attending. All important.

Philadelphia Beer Week May 30-June 8 (Remember to always drink Wisconsinbly.)

Philadelphia Writers’ Conference  June 6-8 If you are attending, or visiting the area, be sure to look me up to say hi.

Philadelphia Comic Con June 19-22  Nuff said.

Feel free to come an join me at any of these events.

Oh, and speaking of Comic Con and Cosplay, here is a picture of Michelle in her Princess Leia (sans wig) outfit ready to take on the Empire.

teresting trivia: although not a Jedi by training, she knows how to handle a light saber.

Here is a gift for all my Science Fiction Television Watching friends, The Most Fascinating Behind-The-Scenes Photos Of Your Favorite TV Shows as reported by io9.

Now for my friends who enjoy astronomy, I present the Milky Way as seen from Mars
