And I’m Not Back!

Again, I haven’t posted a damn thing to this site.

Instead of whining or making excuses about that crap, here are some points of uninterest about my life recently…

  • The kids were sick last week, and got me sick.  Stomach Flu.  I don’t enjoy vomiting, but hey, what can you do.
  • I hit level 50 in SW:TOR.  Waiting for the new patch to come out in April before I start a second character.
  • I’ve picked up my camera again, after a long absence from photography.  Pictures soon, maybe.
  • I am sick of Girl Scout Cookies.  I’ve spent 4 weekends selling cookies on street corners.  It’s for a good cause; we’re taking the girls to DC in June, but… I’m sick of it all.
  • I’m very far behind on my TV watching, movie viewing and book reading.  But what’s new there, right?
  • I’ve almost completed my multi-year project of building a database for my Star Wars Book/Comic/Magazine collection.  Next step is to publish it online.
  • Sadly, I’m too broke to go to ROFLcon III this year.  Very upset about this.

“Movie Review In 140 Characters Or Less” #55

TRON: LEGACY -As good as my childhood memories r of the original (even tho my adulthood memories of the original r not that good). 3D is A+!

And as a bonus, I give you Mr. Jay Maynard, The Tron Guy, with me in the background, as we appeared in Wired Magazine together! (ROFLcon 2008)

Jay Marnard, The Tron Guy, at ROFLcon 2008

Update – I just found this article on TMZ.  It made me sad. :-(  It reads…

Jay Maynard — who’s been doing the Tron Guy thing since ’04 — tells TMZ, he gave his local movie theater a heads-up that he planned to see the new “Tron” flick in his famous costume … but for some reason, they “adamantly” insisted he wouldn’t be admitted if he suited up.

We don’t know why management refused — the suit OBVIOUSLY belongs in a museum — but Maynard believes it’s because his masterpiece is “too distracting.”

Ugh.

ROFLcon II

leave a comment »

Wow, is it that time already? Time for another ROFLcon? Cool! Cuz I love me some ROFLcon!!!

If you are coming to  TimothyPatrickMcMahon.com after visiting ROFLtuxes.Net, hello and thank you!  I bet you’re probably looking for an explanation.  Well…

I went to the first ROFLcon back in 2008, and it was great. Except for the fact that I had the flu and should have been in bed. BUT, I wasn’t going to miss the event for anything. Instead, I loaded up on medications, water and trudged through the weekend. Look, here is a picture of me that was in WIRED, feeling puffy, light headed and a bit out of sorts.

I'm the Ickabod Crane stand-in in the back.

I went with my buddy Roe, also seen in the photo above (not the one in spandex).  We had a great time, but we knew that when ROFLcon II came around, we needed to have a better time!

But how?  Well, we wanted to stand a bit closer to the ROFLcon spotlight.  But, neither of us had anything that would deem us worthy of being on a panel, we didn’t have an audience, we didn’t have cyber-fame, we were not innovators or creators, we were not Internet Superstars.

So, we would have to find a way to stand out from the crowd.  And how could we do this?  One word…

Tuxedos!

At first it was jut a joke, but we decided to do it.  We have no goal other than to get people to stop and say hello.  Simple as that.  We want this weekend to be a social adventure were we meet new and interesting people, have conversations with intelligent strangers, and, as an ego stroke, we want people to approach us and ask to have their pictures taken with us.  (Yes, I’ll admit I can be just that shallow!) Simple as that.

So anyway, that’s all.

This site isn’t much, just a place I share stuff I’ve found other places.  I’m sure these links, photos and videos are not everyone’s cup of tea, but they made me lol, and so I’ve reposted them here.  I keep telling myself I need to do something “original” with this site, but I’ve yet to come up with an idea.  Stop by again in the future, look for me elsewhere online, and let’s be internet friends!
