At your age, why are you still playing dress-up?

Location: Las Vegas, Nevada

Because I refuse to act my age, that’s why.

I am attending Steamathon II in Las Vegas. I am here mainly to support Doc Phineas in his endeavors to make history fun and spark a well needed dose of whimsy and fashion into the world.

I was asked to speak on “Burning Man as an Alternative Reality.” This is not a hard topic for me to talk on. I have lots of pretty Burning Man pictures, and this helps me to keep my lecturing skills up to date.

But in reality the event gives me a chance to wax my mustache, don some flashy garb, and buy another hat.

One really can not have too many hats.
