The giant NYCC Dump!

I had to get these pics up if for no other reason than to give you all some great costume ideas for Halloween.  I had a great time and even broadcasted live so enjoy the pics.  I will put up the 159 Harleys in a little bit.  But for now, what’s your favorite?

I have run the site since 2005. And I have to say I am pretty damn proud of it. I wrote the book Whalewolf (sold on and am not even close to tired so I am just going to keep going. I was born in Portland, Maine and I currently live in New York and Charlotte, North Carolina. I keep hoping that at some point all these weird rebels are gonna say: "SURPRISE!" and act normal. Eight years and counting....

    Was that Wonder Woman a real person? She looked like a wax figure.

      They are a lot more common these days – I bet there is one near you and you don’t even know it!
