Comic Con is almost too big after all these years. It's the big show. The grand daddy of all conventions that gets all the notice, all the buzz and for people who like movies and television it's as close as you will ever get to many of your heroes. Plus there is cosplay, sweet sweet cosplay which I hope never goes out of fashion. I would be terrified to be there among all those people but what a show it would be if I had a good guide to drag me along like his simpler older brother. I am happy that the entire world is online so I can see the convention through the eyes of people who I know will be there. Some of the best photographers and cosplayers and artists out there. It's fun to see all the new stuff that they come out with. Almost too much to keep up with but a treasure full of content for a reblogger like myself.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
