Emerald City Comic Con…

Last time I was on this panel, ScottySpawn was 4 days old and I was on about 2 hours sleep.  I plan to be more cogent this time

Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.

Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.

Thank you!

Emerald City is one of my very favorite shows in the world, and this is the iceberg-tip of why.
Obligatory panel plug: On Saturday, at 12:40, in Hall D, Laura Hudson, Janelle Asselin, Bobby Roberts, and I will be talking about harassment in geek communities.

Where’d I hear this?

"The reward of going viral these days seems to incentivize people to document and comment on things rather than make them."

Father of the year, homie.

Father of the year, homie.

I had a cold this weekend, but managed to score some honest-to-goodness real sudafed.  So far today I have
1) Cleaned the house,
2) Walked the dog and the spawn
3) made Potato Waffles for dinner
4) answered a dozen or so work emails
5) played 2 levels of Tearaway
6) went to the grocery store twice.
7) 3 loads of laundry
8) Purchased and administered unspeakably horrible medication for the spawn.
9) Priced out plane tickets for 3 upcoming potential flights.
10) Strangled Crazy 8 in the basement of a friend’s house.
11) Er…forget that last one
12) Seriously.  Nevermind.

The Shield Season 5 thoughts

That high school riot was intense! 

I can’t tell if Forest Whittaker is really good or really weird in this. 

It must be contractual that Vic Mackey gets to smooch on the ladies.

Oh Hanlon…

LEM!  Shane you prick.

I would watch an entire episode devoted to Kavanaugh and Antwane Mitchell locking horns. 

Julian’s arc is the most interesting thing…never crowed about, but his closeted ness comes up just often enough to create real tension. #slowclap

The music supervisor sure has a hard on for 90’s grunge.  When’s the last time you heard Smashing Pumpkins played not ironically?

We’re nominated for an IAWTV Award again!

We had a blast last year in Vegas and this year we’re nominated for two (count ‘em two!) categories. 


The first, best educational series.  Duh Doye. 

The second?  Best Supplementary Content.

Now, given that we do a lot of stuff here at The Digits, so counting what’s supplementary and what’s not is a little tricky.  So we made this handy blog post for the web series viewers about all the other cool stuff we do.  We’re up against some excellent series, like Husbands and the good folks at Super Geeked Up

I’m so grateful to the IAWTV nominating committee and super excited to meet folks in Vegas.  We met some great folks last year and here’s some pictures to prove it.

About to blow up my co-workers brain by messing with her OCD. Moo hoo hah hah.

This is the most cyberpunk shit I’ve ever seen. Makeup to obscure facial recognition cameras.

Suddenly all ’80s sci-fi movies and music videos become terribly prescient…

Well, huh. That’s… huh.
