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!

Visioncon 2010 – Muay Thai

Posted in Events with tags , , , on January 26, 2010 by Jerrod Balzer

I’m recovering from Vision 2010 in Springfield, MO, held last weekend. Wow, it was the best one yet! I had such an awesome time with S.D. Hintz, Mark McLaughlin, Cullen Bunn, Brian Keene, Wrath James White, Shane Moore, Roy, C. Booth, Mike Oliveri, Russ Dickerson, and many more.

I’ll get into other details later, but I wanted to mention how much fun Wrath’s Muay Thai fighting demonstration was. I have some pictures here of him with Mike Oliveri as his punching bag:

Here’s Wrath looking at me like I’m next:

Once the demonstration began, he starting knocking poor Mike all over the place:

To give Mike a break, Wrath then started picking random people out of the audience to maul:

And then back to Mike:

All kidding aside, Wrath was fantastic. He was very informative about Muay Thai – I learned a lot! I could see why he makes such a great trainer. And when the audience had questions, his offered detailed answers.

I’m thrilled to have attended his demonstration, and to see Wrath in action. Great job Wrath!

I’ll be at Visioncon in January

I’ve been invited to attend Visioncon in Springfield, MO which takes place January 23-25!  Anyone that can attend, please come visit!  Other guests include S.D. Hintz, Brian Keene, and Cullen Bunn, so it’ll be a blast!

The hotel it’s being held at is out of rooms, but there are others up and down the strip so don’t let that discourage you.

Update:  As Scott says below, there are indeed rooms available at the Clarion (where Visioncon is being held).  If you go online with them, it might say they’ll only let you book if it’s for 20 nights, but just call the hotel and ask for a room in the Visioncon block.  We were able to secure one that way.

The hotel’s phone number is (417) 883-6550 so jump on it so you can hang with us!
