I sure hope so. I don't want him to retire! It would be a crime! He's still so, so awesome!
Send good mojo, everyone. Send good mojo. (And think "Dodgers," cuz I wanna be able to watch him on TV, narrated by Vin Scully.)

We were evacuated as a precaution, and on our way out, my friend Diane and I snapped some shots of just a few of the many piles of books that leapt off the shelves during the quake:

Speaking of Starbuck, I was at the Battlestar Galactica panel this year. As usual, Katee Sackhoff was the life of the party. She must have been in a hurry to get there, since she obviously missed a few buttons on her blouse.
Jamie Bamber (Apollo) has a surprisingly high-pitched natural speaking voice. Michael Trucco (Anders) just kept talking about how surprised he was that he had a job.
Tricia Helfer (Six) seems pretty down-to-earth, even with her huge mouth of perfect teeth!
Then it was time for a few hours with those rockin' Minnesotans from Mystery Science Theater 3000! There was the reunion panel on Thursday, which I didn't see...but Joel, Trace, and Frank all showed up later to sign autographs and chat up the crowd. Frank's hair has turned white, much like Charlton Heston's in The Ten Commandments.
Oh, there he is. The show was extremely funny...these guys still got it!
So, that's the update. Was this post long enough for you? Because I could make it longer, and talk about even more people you don't know! No? Okay, good bloggin' at you all!

Perhaps at a later date, my spouse will guest-blog here and share more details of his ComicCon experience!

Backstage at The Colbert Report, awesome rock band Rush is invited to play one of their own songs on the video game "Rock Band". It's fun to watch them muddle their way thru Tom Sawyer, only to fail! Drummer Neil Peart seems to be treating the faux drum pads like real drums.
I applaud these fine Canadian boys for their good sportsmanship! Particularly Alex the guitarist, who occasionally goes bananas and assaults people when annoyed. (Just kidding, Alex!!! You know I love ya, Man!)

Everyone had a great time!
Let's take a closer look:
No, indeedy! It turns out young Master Siegel was *not* having a good time. To be fair, it was an unusually buggy day in the canyon. Kelsey loved it, tho! And we got some nice pix.

Just last night, me and the fam tried out one of these classic places for dinner: Valley Ranch Barbeque in Van Nuys. This place, and its decor, have been in the same place for at least 30 years. The food was good; the ambience was FREAKIN' FANTASTIC!!! I hope if you're ever in the area, you'll check it out. I had a pork sandwich; potato salad, and a nice iced tea.

Mom shows off her sexy Gilligan hat! (I love that The Boy is visible frolicking in the background.)
Mom admires a disembodied noggin she came across in the sand. ;-)
Closeup of disembodied noggin:

What would a day at the beach be without an annoying neighbor of some sort?! This was our guy -- we named him Smoky McIphone. He alternated between lighting up Marlboros and calling people on his "awesome new iPhone" to tell them "what a great time he was having".
And finally, we were treated to a bitchen flyover by LA County's finest rotorheads!
