My Philcon Schedule

I'm on two panels this Saturday at the Philadelphia Science Fiction Convention (oddly enough located in New Jersey). (Cory Doctrow & Boris Vallejo will also be there but, bizarrely enough, it doesn't seem that Tom Purdom, JR Blackwell, Jared Axelrod nor Michael Swanwick will be.) Anyhoo -- if you're around stop by and listen to me prattle on.

Sat 1:00 PM in Plaza II (Two) (1 hour)

[Panelists: J. Andrew World (mod), Kyle Cassidy, Heidi Hooper, David E. Christman]

How do you explain to someone what makes one work of art better than another? What are some of the things to look for when looking at a painting, sculpture, or photo

Sat 3:00 PM in Plaza IV (Four) (1 hour)

[Panelists: David E. Christman (mod), Kyle Cassidy, Alan Beck, Emily Tullis]

How are the arts of illustration and photography similar, and how do they differ (other than the obvious)? And how can they combine to create something new

In other news -- we've been eating more like they do at Castle Gaiman -- where there is nothing in the fridge but raw ingredients and everything is new. While I was there last Fabulous Lorraine was making a lot of food from the Appetite for Reduction cookbook. There were just containers of various things and when you got hungry, you'd just sort of mix and match. It seemed wonderfully healthy. I was a big fan of the carrot ginger dressing and the scarlet barley (both featured here).

I seriously think that there needs to be a "today's menu at Castle Gaiman" blog because it's always a marvelous eating experience.

Roswell approves.

Ooh! I have her Vegan with a Vengeance cookbook and have enjoyed it thoroughly; I'll have to check this one out!

Also, I so love Roswell's "Roswell is Lost" tag. So cute!

Roswell's dish

Is that plate representative of before or after consumption?

The food at Castle Gaiman made me so happy (as evidenced by the photo below, taken when we were there last Summer)! There's something magical and yet completely natural about going out and picking your own food, preparing and eating it, all sometimes in a matter of mere minutes... Don't even get me started on the still-warm honey :)

You MUST find a way to meet shadesong, real name Shira Lipkin. Do not take her picture without first asking, though. BUT. You two MUST meet. She's on a bunch of panels (including the Muppets one with Vix) and is merch-wenching for S.J.Tucker.

Make it so!

Wait. You have met her. She was merch-wenching for S.J. when S.J. did the concert at your house years ago. So go meet again.

He must. It took me, like, five years to get oracne and him to meet. Each would benefit from knowing the other.

That looks delicious! (minus the ginger, because ginger and my stomach just don't get along...), yet still, it looks wonderfully delicious, and oh-so simple! I want some!

Oh, deliciousness. The tamarind quinoa from that cookbook is a favorite around here, and Milton highly approves the chickpea piccata. Not only are chickpeas fun to chase, but they taste good.

roswell loves chickpeas, though she can't really eat them -- she just bats them around in the sink. she doesn't seem to be able to get one in her mouth, but she tries.
