Last night [livejournal.com profile] iolarah and I watched the Global Frequency pilot (Based on Warren Ellis' comic of the same name) that has been leaked onto the internet. I hope that some brave network picks it up, because it's damned good!

Last night was also the first real test of the Scummbox Radio system. I installed Winamp 5.09 on the livingroom computer, dropped the icecast stream quality sightly, queued up a couple fun songs, and off we go! The stream and web controls both worked flawlessly! It was fun sitting on the futon watching full screen visualizations to Aphex Twin and µ-ziq :D The playlist interface needs some tweaking, as the TV is running at 640x480, but that's just windowdressing.

All and all it was a good night.

OMG CHOCOLATE CHIP PANCAKES

*Ahem*

So Yesterday was fun. I went to the Toronto Comicon with [livejournal.com profile] batphantom and [livejournal.com profile] cirhosis. We met up with [livejournal.com profile] sardonyx and more different Jamie when we got there. We trolled the booths, saw some awesome indy comics (goddamn I wish I had money to buy some...) and sat in on Warren Ellis' Q&A (which was hilarious AGAIN). Afterwards I lined up (fairly close to the front of the line) for over an hour before Warren came out to start signing stuff. But I now have a dedicated and signed copy of Red/Tokyo Storm Warning. This makes me happy in the pants.

There was a LARGE amount of swag to pick up... Including (but not limited to) Batman Begins movie posters (proper double sided ones!), Aeon Flux posters, Undead 8½x11 posters, Undead stickers, House of Wax tea candles and matches, House Of Wax wax lips (groan), The Devil's Rejects mini-poster and other such sundry treats! I'm going to get a bunch of binder clips and thumb tacks so I can put them up in the office :)

So HHGTTG (Hitch Hikers Guide To The Galaxy, to the uninitiated) was an unqualified success. They did it right. I was happy. And they even threw in nods to the original BBC TV show (which I loved.) The casting was good. The new additions (and there were plenty) were good. The guide entries were perfect. All in all I couldn't have asked for a better execution.

Many thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] otheronetruegod for the tickets and for the awesome pub time after the fact. I don't think anyone left the table unscarred :)

And now it's time to go to the Toronto Comic Con. Imma try and get Warren Ellis to sign my trade paperback of Red/Tokyo Storm Warning!

First off, Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sardonyx for picking up tickets and basically doing all the arranging for us going to see Warren.

The evening was great. He started off with a prepared reading on writing, which was quite humorous and very intriguing. He is a very smart man. After he finished his prepared speech, he went for a smoke.

Afterwards was Q&A. Snippets gleaned from it: the Global Frequency TV show isn't dead, but he's not allowed to talk about what's going on. There could be another Global Frequency run in the future, but instead of being 12 one shot issues, it would be one epic story. I asked him if the internet has made it easier for ideas to ferment in his brain, or just given him overload, and he was quite quick to say that the internet has made it a million times easier for him. He doesn't have to go to the library and photocopy everything that interests him... he just has to bookmark it, or copy the text and put in in a text file.

After the Q&A was done (at around 11:00... the evening started at around 9:00) everyone got up to leave. And I got this... )

Afterwards, I had a voicemail message from a party (who shall remain nameless) saying that I had to come to Velvet when I was done... I had no choice in the matter. So [livejournal.com profile] sardonyx and I walk from Bloor down to Queen and go to Velvet. No one's there. Finally [livejournal.com profile] cirhosis shows up and says that other people aren't coming. So I stayed a couple minutes and chatted and then left.

Okay... oddness. I woke up at 5:30 in the morning, sitting on the couch still dressed and (as I found out later) still with my contacts in. I have no reccollection of falling asleep there, or of [livejournal.com profile] iolarah leaving. Boy are my eyes sore this morning.

So yeah. That's about it.
