    Man, I wish I lived in the Portland, Oregon area…

    …so I could kick your collective asses for making me feel bad for not living in the Portland, Oregon area!

    I like your reminder in the guests list (ME!), just in case you forget…

    I want to live in Portland. I’m imagining a big Portland production number like the one about Cleveland on 30 ROCK.

    Give a shout-out to Lieber, an’ Farel, an’ Matt, an’ Michael (an’ tell him that Deathlok article’s a-comin’). Damn, what a meeting of minds. The raw talent in one place…it’s givin’ off ripples, man. RIPPLES. Can you feel the thunder?

    I have no idea what that last sentence meant.

    And if anyone happens to be in the Sylva, NC, area, I’ll be at Fandemonium yelling at kids who don’t know who Jack Kirby is. True, I’m not famous, but…dammit, yelling at strangers’ kids is fun.
