Sooner or later, we do actually get well …

Well, I had a lovely time at Mid-South Con back in March. Sadly, I was already a bit beat down before attending. I even went home at a decent hour and actually got plenty of sleep. Alas, this was to no avail. The coughing wheezing mess commonly known as Con-Crud set in. Then, just to add insult to injury, the pollen assault began. It has only been in the last few days that I have been able to do anything other barely survive the day and crawl into bed early. This gets you way behind, but there is very little you can do about it.

Welp, time to dust off, get up, and get back to it. Yes, there is an elephant on the poor Desk Of Endless Tasks, however, I have lots of A1 and a willingness to tackle all this one bite at a time.

Geek Tank Radio (www.geektankradio.com) continues to amaze throngs of fans around the world. We continue to do what we do best, banter back and forth about whatever geeky topic attracts our attention. Listen in either on the website or look us up on the IHeartMedia app.

The Fix-It Up Show (podcast: The Fix-It Up Show) is broadcast live at 8:00 AM on WREC 600 AM and 92.1 FM in Memphis, TN. To all you crazy do-it-yourself types up that early in the morning, keep calling in with your questions. I have had a blessed run on the show and no one has stumped me yet but I am sure it is coming. We may have some cool new videos coming up under the name Tool Junkies! I will keep you posted.

My Mid-South Pyrate Blades are doing great. The training continues and everyone is really starting to get comfortable with those swords. As a matter-of-fact, the Pyrate Blades will be featured guests at TupeloCon this weekend in Tupelo, MS. If you are in the area, come on by and hang out with pyrates.

Later Y’all.

Survived Coldmagedeon …

Well, January has been quite the month.  There will be a lot of changes this year.  So much to look forward to achieving.  Happily, this year is starting off a bit less dramatically than last year.  A few minor goals have been reached with many more coming into reach.  Thus, I am looking forward to seeing what unfolds this year.

Geek Tank Radio (www.geektankradio.com) continues to amaze me with the growth of the number of fans around the world.  Talk about blessed, we get to sit around a studio at Kiss 101.9 and act like we normally do and talk about the stuff we normally carry on about.  We just so happen to have the mics on and y’all enjoy listen to our madness.  Thanks for all the support and we have a lot more coming this year.

The Fix-It Up Show (podcast: The Fix-It Up Show) is another growing show now getting fans from all over.  We broadcast live at 8:00 AM on WREC 600 AM and 92.1 FM in Memphis, TN but we are catching on all over the place thanks to the IHeartMedia podcast app.  It is fabulous to hear from people from around the globe that enjoy listening to our silliness and dubious advise.

For everyone caught in the bitter cold a few days ago, thank goodness it is just about over.  We got massively lucky in Memphis and did not get pounded unlike last year when we got slammed by lots of ice and cold.  I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am ready for some warm temps.

On the book front, if you have not read anything by me yet, I am going to pitch you my Short Story Collection.  It has a little bit of this and that.  I am sure I have a story or two you will enjoy.

Later Y’all.

Time Is Fleeting

The year is wrapping up.  The temps have dropped and not returning to balmy for a while.  Holiday shopping is full swing.  Hopefully, I will be done with mine this week.

The legs and feet are feeling much better after 4 weeks of being off of them.  I will have to get serious about a diet after all this.  I am just happy to stand without stabbing pain 🙂

Wow, I have cleared out a ton of old work off The Desk Of Endless Tasks.  Now, I can get the fun stuff done.  The amount of housekeeping drudgery that can accumulate is just plain shocking.

Geek Tank Radio has been fascinating over the past few days.  I got to see the preview to Marvel Entertainment Live.  The costumes are amazing and the stunts are thrilling.  Takes the kids and enjoy a well done arena stunt show.  I also got to sneak a peek at the new animated movie Spider-man: Into The Spider-Verse.  This is a plain and simple entertaining movie.  The sense of humor is respectful of the genre and age appropriate. Load up the kids and Spidey fans, get lots of popcorn, sit back, and enjoy.

The Fix-It Up show continues down the path of humorous advice while getting upstaged by our callers.  Happily, the squirrel still visits and we are having a good time.

I need to get back to writing my own material, but right now, I am about as creative as cabbage.  So we shall see what gets the keyboard flowing.

Hello December

Well, this year is sliding into the final curtain call.  Over all, I don’t really know what to think of 2018.  On one hand, I managed to get a lot of bills paid and a lot of mundane stuff done.  Both radio shows have been a lot of fun to do and seem to be growing every week.  Who knows, with the new attention at IHeartMedia to podcasts, we might even get nominated for some king of award or another.

2018 also had its share of delays and pain.  I finally managed to get my big job projects wrapped up to a point I could take some time and get my poor feet and legs treated for plantar fasciitis.  My word to the wise is take care of your feet.  Pain is not normal so get it checked sooner not later.

At the convention this past weekend, I got to meet, interview, and ultimately drive David Dastmalchian to the airport.  This is an actor to watch for bigger and better things.  Best known as Murdock on the new MacGyver series, he was simply amazing.  I have been blessed in my career as a minor convention/radio personality to work with great people.  David should be on the verge of a major role breakthrough.  It was a pleasure to work with him.  You can check out the interview here:

A quick word about the Fix-It Up show.  If you have not heard it yet, click over and listen to episode or two.  The show has come a long way in a short period of time and just keeps growing.  Joe and I are having a great time doing the show in spite of the fact that we have to get up at dark:30 to get to the studio in time.
