Dragon Con

So we were out and about in the midst of Festival Weekend and caught Dragon*Con.  This was the 25th aniversary of the convention and as always hosted a  forum for all alum in the form of literature, art, film, and music. Not to mention the active members and participants that complete the convention, while bringing a festival and a city to life.

The convention started Friday September 2, 2011 and ended Monday September 5, 2011, with attendance was estimated at over 45,000.   As always there were arts, crafts, performances, presentations, forums, panel discussions, actors, writers, directors, artists, and many charcters of all varying varieties.  With its cross-media and open appeal, it delivered, as always,  with fun and intrigue.


The convention takes the face of a celebration and a festival, with people from all forms and facets of life. Granted many see a spectacle of this phenomenon, but most were there for their connection to science fiction, horror, fantasy, and media in all forms to represent such genres. One can only question what is placed in a mind, to make people like what they like. At Dragon*Con that question is somewhat left behind, for participants can seperate from the holdrum of everyday and indulge into fantasy in its own strange way, becoming real and tangible.  This reality creates its own universe and that universe is Dragon*Con.

The Grid...

Here’s where you can enter a world and ride upon a plane of unnatural existence becoming the only existence, becoming the reality, becoming natural. Daft Punk puts us here with this most riveting chronological musical of the story of Flynn meeting his son on the grid.

This album is one of the cool ones. One of the ones that can fit anywhere. Sit you at peace, and be easy. Yeaaah EE zee. Political, spiritual, familial, and your girlfriend, not to mention. You can also find emanicipation and redemption in this album.

The Top 3 Reasons to Listen to Adele 21

On February 22, 2011, Adele released “21” the follow-up to “19,” her breakthrough debut.  Critics the world over have described “21” as “simply timeless”, “haunting”, “soaring”, “organic”, and “poignant”, and have compared her vocal stylings to artists such as Amy Winehouse and Dusty Springfield,

From the first piano chords into ("I see you drivin' around town with a girl I know.  I'm like F**k You!")  He had us hooked with a curious fascination of what is to come and refreshment in what could be found as vulgar.  Vulgarity being made endearing and with an artist givin' us the truth of the art he wants to do with some juicy goodness. 

On Friday, February 17th, I went to see the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist collective, Joy Scout, perform at Eddie’s Attic. Emily Kate Boyd and Nicki Thrailkill, the heart of Joy Scout, were missing third member Jesse Tyler, but were joined by long time collaborators Will Boos on ukulele, David Stephens on banjo, Paul Warner on lap steel, as well as Will Robertson on bass, who also produced their new album: Vampires at Sea.
