Supanova 2016 – Perth’s Pop Culture Expo

Last weekend, for the fourth time, I made my way to Supanova, the pop culture expo that’s been running in Perth since 2008, highlighting all sorts of stuff pertaining to “geek culture,” ie comics, science fiction, fantasy, anime and the like.  I went with my friend  who has attended with me a couple of times before, and who this time brought his teen daughter with him.




In my adult years I’ve only been to a few conventions, less than you’d think considering how much I enjoy this sort of stuff, or at least some of it.

Confusion is Like Mustard

Well well well, here we go with this project.  This was filmed and edited back in 1998 when I was working late one night with my good friend Dwight (co-author of True Blues) and we decided to just go for it.  The quality is pretty shocking because of course it was done in glorious Hi-8, and because I’m still trying to figure out how to best digitally convert  my VHS tapes in the best way.
