I’m having a hard time typing because my geek guy has a friend over. They are watching Dune- the David Lynch movie- at an unimaginable volume. I dislike the film. The husband, however, loves it deeply and without irony. I… do not understand. Aaaaagh!! Anyway, my Dragon Con costumes are nearing completion. Yuna just needs some... Read more »
Happy Thanksgiving, geeks! As I write this, I have finished my dinner, surrounded by family and friends. I am thankful, but also just FULL. I really want to sleep it off all weekend. If you’re a Doctor Who fan, though, this is NOT the time to relax and digest. Get ready for Chicago TARDIS 2014.... Read more »

The Chicago geek community has two Thanksgiving traditions of its own: WolfCon and Chicago TARDIS. Both are... Read more »

This has resulted in some long waits and longer e-mails. Thankfully, everything is clear now. Geek Girl Jess and I will be at at Windycon tomorrow, November... Read more »
Just when you thought Halloween was over, a sci-fi convention pops up with a Zombie theme. WindyCon is Chicagoland’s oldest sci-fi con, celebrating 39 years this weekend. It’s already underway at the Westin Lombard. For being such an old event, it doesn’t seem like it will be packed; the crafting panels limit themselves to only 8... Read more »
