Scott McCloud at the Chicago Humanities Festival!

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

So, I’ve been asked to interview Scott McCloud at the Chicago Humanities Festival. I’m one of the many, many people who first learned about comics from Understanding Comics. I could not be more excited. You should come. There will be Q&A. And a book signing of his new comic, The Sculptor! 😀

Thoughts on Deep Breath

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

I just watched “Into the Dalek” last night, and will share my thoughts on that on the next Verity!. I have some first impressions, and some nitpicks about “Deep Breath.” In general, I really liked most of the episode. It was a pretty good introduction of a new Doctor, although I still think “The Eleventh […]

5 things make a post-Convergence update post

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

  1. New Verity Episode! Episode 46: Communication Breakdown is live. 2. Work is quiet, in the sense that I’m mostly working on things like annual reports and tenure portfolio reviews, that I can poke at slowly over time well before the deadlines. We are planning Digital POWRR workshops in the fall (I will be […]

5 Things make a post

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

So, 5 things. 1. I seem to be going through a post-tenure burnout/depression period.  Yes, it’s a thing. A thing that I am currently experiencing. My particular manifestation is keeping me from taking as much pleasure in successes as I would like, or not trusting them, and not really knowing what happens next.  The tenure […]

Post-tenure Updates!

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

So, I’ve been tenured for a couple of weeks now. Here’s what I’ve been up to: 1. We bought a new car! It’s a 2013 Mazda 5. Our 1999 Saturn has been on its last legs for quite some time, up to and including making a bit of a death rattle on the way to […]

WisCon Approacheth!

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

And our entire family will be in attendance. This WisCon is also the official launch for Queers Dig Time Lords! Thus, I have a very light schedule in deference to Michael’s book launch. It really is a splendid book. I got to read the manuscript. (And you should totally come to the QDTL/Outer Alliance party […]
