    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    The last couple of days I've made friends with Shannon Wheeler who writes <a target="_blank" href="http://www.tmcm.com/">Too Much Coffee Man</a>, and now I'm wandering around Portland putting up posters for his opera. Dude has an opera. Actually it's the sequel to <a target="_blank" href="http://www.pcpa.com/events/event.php?run=902">last year's opera</a> which was a huge success even though Too Much Coffee Man started off as a parody of costumed superheroes, and not, well, an opera. I don't know how often that transition has been made, I'm presuming it's pretty rare.

    He's a big Warren Ellis fan and said he'd get me some coffee if I mentioned something about it online. He already got me the coffee and I already drank it so now I'm pretty much fucked. I have to post the ad or else he's taking the coffee back the hard way.

    He got <a target="_blank" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Too_Much_Coffee_Man#Publication_history">some of his start</a> through Dark Horse Comics and I know there are a few Dark Horse people around. Go check out an opera! Then you can say you've been to at least one! See the first ever singing alkaloidal suspension!

    If Shannon decides to retrieve his coffee despite my attempts here I'll be sure to take pictures.
