Well, it’s Hop in the City Eve. I don’t think that’s a real holiday, but I think we should lobby for it to be. Unfortunately I won’t be live-blogging the event as I’ve decided I just want to hang out and enjoy it. I’ll make sure to have lots of pictures and a nice recap for those who can’t attend though.

Kind of a quiet week as far as new releases. Here’s the Round-Up:
