COMIC CON 2016!!!


COMIC CON 2016!!! Four days of amazing adventure. Did I explore a little, Yes, but I mostly stayed put at The Grey Woods booth. Which is fine. 180K+ showed up and a majority of those people walked by and I said hi. Comic Con is different for each person attending. For most it is a…

Straight Man in a Queer World

Face the faceless


• Face the faceless Entertainment comes with some pretty interesting people. They are even more interesting when they are on the bottom floor. The bottom floor, level, the beginning stages, however you see fit. I even consider people 10 years, or more, in entertainment, beginners if they are doing what I call the “Oh, you’re…
