  2. oh hey, do you have the ability to turn off the snapshots preview thing? I dunno how anybody else feels but it drives me absolutely bonkers.

    UPDATE: Done! It has always irritated me too! ~john

  3. Fantastic meeting today. Hearing about what everyone is up to is always fascinating to me. It’s interesting to see how everyones plans are evolving. I think Nap and I are going to talk out something I’ve had on my mind for a while but never really had the means to get rolling. I’m talking about the horrifically abstract idea of open source comics.

    I also completely failed to mention a couple of things that I’ve been up to lately and wanted to plug. I have a terrible tendency to dominate the mic when it’s my turn to talk and I still forgot to mention these things:

    1. I wanted to mention that I now blog for Bloody Good Horror, a site similar to my own. It gives me a chance to be a little more free form and just talk about things rather than review movies or opine about horror movie news. My latest is a call for people to stop reading the big sites, stop submitting articles to me and do it themselves:

    2. Tank Riot is my favorite podcast. It’s seriously awesome. Three dudes in Wisconsin talking about movies, music, science fiction and most recently: Conspiracies. Download the latest, Conspiracies 3. At the end, I’m featured for ten minutes talking about The Bohemian Grove.

  4. Hey Nap and Bryan, remember me if you’re in need of a (slightly) overworked writer (and kinda half-assed artist) for any sort of comics-related initiative. I have a graphic novel/series idea that’s been kicking around in my brain for years. Can’t wait to get to it someday.

    Maybe this is how we all get to Comic Con 2009, huh?

  5. Well, I already submitted the panel idea for open source comics to SXSW more than a month late so it’s a start. I have a snowball’s chance in hell of being considered for the panel picker and then have to compete with more than 1000 other panel ideas… so. Maybe Wizard World or SDCC ’09.
