I began writing my blog, THE FIRE WIRE In April 2008 on a rainy day in Portland, Oregon and this week I am celebrating my 10,000th post! Man that’s a lot of articles…
I want to personally thank all of the followers and readers of my website! I truly am appreciative of you taking time out of your busy day to check out my site and hopefully I have kept you informed about my pop culture passions and entertained.
Because of the blog I have had some wonderful experiences tsuch as meeting Stephen King, Joe Hill, Kevin Smith, James Cameron, John Lasetter, Stan Lee, Adam West, Drew Struzan, Jim Lee, Neil Gaiman and countless others.
I’ve been fortunate to tour Pixar Studios, attend lots of movie premieres and sneak previews, rub elbows with fellow geek enthusiasts at Comic Con, WonderCon and D23, rock out at some fun concerts and get interviewed for a couple of documentaries.
I have been honored to meet wonderful artists, comic book creators, fantastic authors, talented musicians and most importantly developed lifelong friendships with many of my readers. You guys rock!
I joke with my wife that I never want any gifts for the holidays because everyday is like Christmas with unexpected packages at my front door awaiting to be unboxed! It could be a shiny new Apple gadget, an advanced readers copy of an upcoming novel, a new CD to check out or a poster tube stuffed with incredible art to adorn my office walls. I truly am blessed and I LOVE this hobby!
To celebrate my 10,000th post I have something very special planned for later this summer that will take place in Los Angeles! It’s my small way to give back to all of YOU who have supported me. I will post more details over the next few weeks so please make sure to follow me on facebook and twitter for future announcements!
If you are a fan of:
and many, many more
then you are going to want to be part of this special event!!!
Enough teasing, we’ll talk soon and thanks again!
