You know what? For once, I’m just going to let it speak for itself.

Because, I have bigger and better things to get to!

First off, did you happen to catch last night’s 2-hour Season Premiere of American Gladiators? Wow, what a great ride! There are a bunch of new Gladiators, including last season’s winners Evan and Monica, now going by the names Rocket and Jet. Jet seemed to be holding her own with the women, but Rocket might not be on the same level as the Male Gladiators. He looks a little small… The favourite by far was the new lady, Phoenix, who made her grand entrance by rising out of a firepit with huge wings on. Awesome!

Gone are the bizarre events like Hit and Run, and there are a few new events that are poised to be fan favourites, and fan disappointments. The very strange race entitled Vertigo would definitely fall in the latter category. Over the course of the season, they are planning on debuting more new Gladiators and events, and they are promising the return of Altasphere!! I can’t wait!!!

Ok, now that I’ve got that geekery out of my system, on to bigger and better news. Paperwork has cleared, people have been contacted, contracts signed and cheques cashed. What does that all mean? Well, it means I can lay out for you our official summer appearance schedule! We love meeting and chatting with you guys, so without further ado, here it is:

Free Comic Book Day (@ Image Collections) Saturday May 3\r\nAnime North 2008 Friday May 23 – Sunday May 25\r\nStreetsville Arts Fest (@ Image Collections) Saturday June 7th\r\nParadise Toronto Comicon 2008 Saturday July 12th and Sunday July 13th\r\nFan Expo 2008 Friday August 22 – Sunday August 24

Be sure and mark these in your calendar, as they are events not to be missed! In truth, we’ve only done a few of these things in the past, but it has rapidly become the best part of what we do. I love being able to talk to people who dig our stuff, and also those who don’t. Winning new sheep into the flock is one of my favourite pastimes! We’ll post more details as the become available for each event, but it’s looking like one great summer! The Summer of No Reason!

So, something else comes with summer, and that is hayfever and allergies. Since I am currently suffering from a massive attack of both, I will leave you now.

Ah geez, here comes another sneeze… ah AH AH CHOOOOO!!

… crap.
