Happy Tuesday, my friends! I hope we all had a great weekend! I know here, the rain finally let up for a bit, we had sunny skies for Free Comic Book Day, and things started to dry out enough to do yard work today! It was a good weekend, with the Strange Universe show on Friday night, Free Comic Book Day travels and visiting on Saturday, capped with dinner with friends on Saturday night, and then, as you can tell from yesterday’s Media Monday post, we saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 bright and early on Sunday morning, before heading home and getting started on real-life things.
Now, let’s look at the month of May, where there is more than racing happening:
- May 13th: Mosey Down Main Street, with The Shake Ups! Join The Shake Ups in historic downtown Lafayette as they have a free show during the Mosey Down Main Street community event!
- May 21st: Cullen Bunn Signing! Aw Yeah Comics in Muncie will be hosting writer Cullen Bunn from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Known for his work on Deadpool Kills Deadpool for Marvel, and his own work, Harrow County, you’ll be able to meet him and get your books signed!
- May 23rd: I turn 40. I know, not really that big of a deal, but my mind has it as a milestone, so here we go. Heck, if you really want to, here’s the blog’s wish list on Amazon, if you want to get me something nice. Why not? I have no shame.
- May 25th: Happy 40th, Star Wars!
- May 27th: Return of Doctor Mysterio Viewing! Who North America is continuing to set up new things in their location, and one is a viewing room with a 60″ TV! Viewing is free, and they’ll be showing this past year’s Doctor Who Christmas Episode at 2:00 PM and 6:00 PM!
Looking ahead to the month of June
- June 3rd: All Things Handmade Craft Show! It’s the first craft show at Who North America! Not everything is going to be Doctor Who related, but everything will be locally crafted by local artisans and authors! Check it out, and support local!
- June 10th: George Kramer Book Signing! Local author George Kramer (Arcadis series, Blind for Blood) will be at Scarlet Lane Brewing from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM to talk to you about his books, and sign them, all while you enjoy local beer! Local author plus a local brewery equals a winning combo! Take a look at the Facebook event page for more information!
- June 30th – July 2nd: InConJunction XXXVII! The 37th incarnation of this fan-run convention is on its way! Register before 5/15 for early bird rates, and come have a good time with fellow Geeks!
- June 30th – July 2nd: Days of the Dead! It’s a horror show, literally! This horror convention is back, with a large list of horror actors and wrestlers! Click the link for more details!
Now, what’s happening with the blog, the blogger, and friends of the blog?
- This Week’s Photo: Caramel, chocolate, and bacon top this wonderful donut from Concannon’s Bakery in Muncie!
- Do you like how the blog looks? Then check out Studio 27 Indy and TikiKitchen Design. I just write this stuff. They’re the ones that make me look good.
- Support the Blog: So far, I have podcast hosting, Dropbox, and Adobe Creative Cloud (student subscription, I’m not THAT rich!) covered, thanks to friendly awesome supporters! However, I could still use help, to make sure I have enough for domain name hosting, equipment improvements, and convention tables!
That’s it for this week, as we roll our way through 2017! I’ll see you all tomorrow!
