what is it with my luck?

So here I am, the third time in a month back in L.A. and they have a Star Wars convention going on right down the street. Super Jedi-geek that I am, I found myself shelling out green for green. Meaning I bought two autographs, one of Greedo, one of Kit Fisto- both green characters. Both of the guys who play those characters were pretty cool. I was amazed at how many people they had there to sign autographs. Even had they guy that said "These aren't the droids you're looking for."
Also ran into a guy I knew from Atlanta waaaaaay back. A guy that sells fan merch. Got a t-shirt of him that says "Frack me". If you get this reference, you get a special no-prize. One of the first autographs I ever got was of Richard Hatch. It was at a car show and I asked him what frak and felgercarb meant. He said something like, "I'll have to tell you after the show." I knew he was kidding, but I was kinda hoping...

Next time, I'll publish a report on the Design…

Yes, the picture is crap, but I was happy as hell to meet this intense actor who has been in a whole mess of my favorite movies! Also learned about his AIDS awareness activities including his Starfish Association, and I was happy to donate $10 and get a signed pic for a friend back here who is sick.

Also came across this interesting mail box.
So, what else have I been up to? An animation that my team put together for the hip hop mag The Source (Japan) was screened last night at the club Shibuya Harlem (yeah, don't ask). It's always nice when you can see your work up on a big screen with more than just your friends and family watching. We'll be screening this short along with some others at the end of this month at the Design Festa, a big art conve…
