The Dimmu Borgir concert left me sore, hoarse and nearly deaf. I could not be happier. I was also impressed with the opening band, Enslaved. Quality viking metal. Epic symphonic black metal. All in all a very metallic evening.
New England Webcomics Weekend was a great success for everyone involved. Even me, and I wasn't even remotely involved! I was simply attending, showing my support for the exhibiting webcomickers and the event itself, and yet a whole bunch of wonderful readers said "hi," offered flattering words and asked me for quick sketches of characters. I almost felt like the "hidden boss" of Webcomics Weekend, so that was neat.
I finally got to meet Karl Kerschl, whose work in comics I've greatly admired for years and his webcomic, The Abominable Charles Christopher, is one of the most beautiful and moving I've encountered in a long time. I confess I had more than one fanboy moment when I met him. It was awesome.
Ananth & Yuko, it was wonderful to see you guys again.
Randy, I managed to survive my ride home.
Chris, I'm sorry we didn't hang out more.
Evan, your work floors me.
Spike, you flatter both me and my (allegedly) beautiful hair.
Dave, one day I'll drag you to a proper Boston pub.
If I forgot anyone in this initial post, I'll make it up to them later this week.
That's all from me for now.
