What a bummer for me! I almost never need to go to weddings or some other event. I'm free almost all nights (other than my nightly class, which I would normally skip to see you guys). This is the marriage of one of our rabbi's daughters; known the family for nearly 25 years. We attend his synagogue part of the time time, and another local one part of the time. The "chuppa" (wedding ceremony) is called for 6:30 PM at one of the LAX hotels, and I really should be there for that. Since I work downtown, I'll have to leave fairly early to get there on time. Then afterwards there is the festive dancing (men and women separately, of course), speeches, dinner, etc. The timing is just all wrong. Dang!!!! I am so disappointed. You guys are going to have so much fun.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla - After 143 million miles and nearly a year all told in orbit, space shuttle Discovery is poised to blast off today one last time.

I want to thank Reggie for the very successful Launchparty last night. I had kind of lost touch with things around here and now I'm back in the loop. So that was the more personal part of last night's success.  If your dig comics SF TV or film there folks from all those arenas.  My Oh My! There were some super-fine women on hand (Rashida Jones Erika Alexander and Kamala Harris among others)

I might have some video from the spoken tribute for Dwayne Mc Duffie. I'll post that after I see what got captured, but more importantly I want announce the formation of "BangBabies".   Right now it's a Facebook group whose primary focus is monthly face2face meet-ups in the general Southern Calif area.  The name is a tribute to Dwayne's self-starter entrepeneurship.  It's for wannabee writers artists and others trying to breakrhough and get focused who just need camraderie and fraternity to swim together.  The membership is strictly "invite only", but all forum members are the perfect demographic (I'm not talking about race or any physical charcteristic, but an internal desire to create your own properties or just break into the business).  The emphasis is on real world activities. Things we can do together like enjoy a meal, go to premieres, cons or other events or just chat things.  I'll extend invites to established pros like Reggie et al to advise, but the focus is on what we do on our own. 

Anybody interested in the group should hit me up on Facebook. I'm "Cm Talley" over there.  Just let me know you're from Reggie's forum.

You were very missed. Redjack and other forum members were in attendance, including the rare presence of our own Curtis Metcalf.

I would have loved to work with Mr. McD someday.. It won't happen now, but I am glad that I did get to meet him once when he attended a local long-running convention; I remember on this board he stated that the Con's organizers apparently hadn't reached out to him over the years..

Back during the original run of Icon, I was chosen for a 'letter of the month' honor, (#25), and got a free signed copy of the issue (signed by Mr. McD) in the mail.  I saved that comic, including the original 11 x 14 manila envelope.  When meeting him, I pulled it out and told him, and he was really amused, and he was gracious enough to sign it a second time, some 14 years later..  8)

...I have no idea whether my efforts (and HEF peeps, etc.) tipped the scale in terms of getting him to the Detroit Comic-Con, but I'm definitely glad it finally happened..  :)

God Bless, Maestro, your legacy is immortal..

Launch Party respect. The tribute to Dwayne was emotional and moving first and foremost.  It was awesome seeing Flex Hectic, Kamala Harris, Reggie, Denys, Ziggy, Michael J White and Phil Lamar! It was black people night on Melrose and it was respectful peaceful and uplifting. My idea of a good night, all things being considered.
