In the 80’s when I was just a kid, I used to love PBS. When we only had Channels 2, 4, 9, 11, 13, 16, 22 and 53, I gravitated to the cartoons on 53 and the children’s programming on PBS, which was 13 and 16. Times were simpler back then.
This weekend was huge. We were double or triple booked from Friday through Sunday and had to make some hard choices.
My vacation was about to start. I left work on Wednesday and on the walk home, I lost my balance in the dark, slipped on the uneven pavement and fell. My ankle bent in the wrong direction. My knee got all scraped up.
On February 3, I took a friend with me to the Castro Theater to what was titled “A Sketchfest Tribute to Penn & Teller.” I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect, but I figured it would be cool to experience and I’ve always been a fan of Sketchfest programming.
It was supposed to be a mostly quiet holiday weekend with a couple of huge events in the middle. It turned out to be much more than that.
On Friday night, I ventured to Levi’s Stadium on a pilgrimage to meet one of my childhood heroes.
We spent Halloween weekend in Los Angeles, seeing Danny Elfman, Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo, and TeamMate.
