Calling DL Snell on The Funky Werepig

Posted in Events, Skullvines Press with tags , , , , , , , on February 9, 2010 by Jerrod Balzer

A few weekends ago, S.D. Hintz, Mark McLaughlin and I were back at my house from Visioncon, and we decided to call in to the Funky Werepig and mess with them. D.L. Snell happened to be the guest that night and he was a great sport! S.D. made the call into a YouTube video using pictures from Visioncon:

Okay, here’s some pics from last weekends Visioncon. We want to thank everyone who came out for making it such a blast, and the staff was top notch. Dave, the head honcho, did a fantastic job once again, and we look forward to next year!

July 4th pics!

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 10, 2009 by Jerrod Balzer

I spent the weekend at S.D. Hintz‘s house along with Rich Ristow and Mark McLaughlin, and we had a wild time with lots of great folks during CONvergence ’09.

Now, I’m not much of a camera person.  I don’t like carrying one around everywhere.  So I didn’t get any at the actual convention.  However, I did take several while at SD’s July 4th barbecue.  We had a blast, R. Scott McCoy was a hit with the absinthe he brought along.  We were also thrilled that Roy C. Booth, Rob Callahan, and the gorgeous MontiLee Stormer were able to stop by.

So here are some pics, along with a Burger King pic that Rich took while we made fun of a typo:

We ate, drank, and were very merry.  Thanks for the fun weekend, everybody!  And that includes all those I didn’t get pictures of like Brian Keene, Cynthia Booth, Ashanti, and everyone else I neglected to mention.  You all rock, and make me wish I carried my camera more.

Scott Allie on the Metal Crypt!

Posted in Robin Balzer, The Metal Crypt with tags , , , , , , , on June 17, 2009 by Jerrod Balzer

Next Wednesday, I’m thrilled to announce we’ll have Dark Horse Comics’ Scott Allie on the Metal Crypt!

He’s scheduled to be on at 5pm EST, and of course, we’ll have Mark McLaughlin on at 3:30pm EST so don’t miss that.

And since Robin did so well on the Funky Werepig last Sunday night, I’ll try letting her on to say a few words to Mr. Allie.  She’s been anxious to thank him for all he’s done for a long time now.

It should be a blast!
