The Grand Rapids Comic Con was a nice finale for my con season. Check out these photos from my time at my home town con.
I met up with Billy West again. Billy is a long running voice actor featured in Futurama (Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Zoidberg, Zap), Ren and Stimpy, and Disenchantment. We talk about his comedy heroes, musical background, his podcast, and old hollywood periphery. Plus, we talk about his upcoming show on Netflix, Disenchantment. Another fun interview with the incomparable Mr. West. Enjoy.
These Year in Reviews are not, what I call, official “reviews”. Like last year, they will be a series of musings, learned lessons and stories of what I experienced through out the year. Of course, reviews are featured but they are blended in with everything. The theme of FIRSTS sum up the beginning, middle and end of my year, as you will see. Enjoy my year of 2016 in the Michigan Geek Scene.
When May arrives, winter is nothing but an afterthought. No snow or ice in sight. The cold weather is gone (for the most part since it is Michigan after all.) Con season is in it’s stride. What events did the fifth month of the year bring me? Let’s find out.
Special Effects Artist, a season 8 Face Off contestant and Michigan native, Rob Miller talks with me about his part in the world of special effects.

Tia Ballard is a voice actress for numerous anime series. We talk more about her background and personal interests than we do anime and voice acting in this fun conversation. If you like 90s TV shows, Vincent Price and video games, check out this interview. I can say that I am the first person to do an interview with a anime voice actress at a Ren Faire. Top that.
He has voiced numerous iconic characters throughout the years in his illustrious career. Ren and Stimpy, Fry, Professor Farnsworth and Zoidberg from Futurama are just a few. Meet Billy West. We have a very honest and raw interview that encompasses influences, art and his awesome podcast.
