So, there’s still some Dragon Con 2020 to enjoy during this next week. But as far as the Roku, DCTV Dragon Con Goes Virtual stream, and a few other platforms carrying the live feeds this weekend are concerned, Dragon Con Goes Virtual has gone dark tonight.

Dragon Con Goes Virtual

For those of you late to the party that is the Coronapocalypse of 2020…

Pandemics suck. On the extreme far end, downer that this is to start a blog post with, there’s death. However, that does play into what happens to daily life under a pandemic.

The Underground Space Station

As I write this, the funeral for George Floyd is in underway in Houston. The commentary about this case, and the coronavirus before it, has pretty much driven me away from social media.

Several people I know I have eliminated from the roll of my Facebook call as all they would ever do is spout, well, nastiness. I don’t need that in my life, no matter how long I’ve known a person. These aren’t the people I want to talk about right now.
The ones I want to discuss are the uneducated, unthinking ones. Some are related to people I know, some are just loud and obnoxious so everyone hears them. They’ll take whatever agrees with their viewpoint from the media and run with it, arguing to the last even…

Con Cover

2020 is largely turning into the year without a fan convention. We saw a few conventions take place just after the New Year, but then the Big Bad Bug hit America’s shores and con after con started announcing their closures. If it wasn’t already apparent to everyone before it got to this point, the idea that this was going to be a year where fan gatherings had to fall to the needs of public health came when SDCC announced they were shutting their doors for 2020.
