I didn’t meet this guy at Comic-Con — I met him yesterday afternoon in front of the Firehouse on Rose Ave. and Main Street in Santa Monica. He just walks around like this. Very cool.

Downloaded the Comic-Con iPhone app while waiting on the plane yesterday morning.

Inside a Starbucks adjacent to San Diego’s titanic/gargantuan convention center — Thursday, 7.23, 11:25 am.

I stayed in this little dumpy place last night, partly because I like old places and partly because it only cost $69 plus tax. I’m calling it the Bates Motel. No hot water in the shower, smelled like stale cigarettes and spilled beer. I love places like this, but I’m staying someplace cleaner this evening because I really do need hot water in the morning.
