Wondercon 'n Stuff  
Wondercon was cool, for all that it made me think. More on that some other time. Or something. I had a nice time chatting with a bunch of fannish friends, which was very cool.

Found out that Bob Wilkins of Creature Feature and Captain Cosmic fame recently passed away. Captain Cosmic was my first introduction to tokusatsu, and to weird and wacky TV programs from Japan. He was an important part of my childhood, and I'm sad to know he's no longer with us.

Moving along... Yet again I feel like I'm coming down with the flu. :P I suspect I shall be indulging my whim to finish watching Faiz by flopping on the couch for the day tomorrow.

Going to bed now, in the hopes that tomorrow everything won't ache. I suspect I shall not be revisiting Wondercon again tomorrow. (Not that folks who I'd be hanging with at the con are likely to be reading this before heading out tomorrow anyway.)

Re: Bob Wilkins
You grew up in the Bay Area? Or did Captain Cosmic get a wider distribution than I thought?

Sorry to miss it. Didn't wake up until 2PM. -_-

I didn't realize I would be in SF, so I didn't tell anyone. =/ I was in Berkeley for the weekend, but they ended up taking us to SF for a tour of the area.
