My brother is getting married in the DFW area this summer. I'm looking for someone to style my hair. Anyone have a fantastic, hip, talented stylist in the Grapevine or Euless areas?

Moving to Dallas - Need Info
Hey there, new guy here.

We're fleeing from Los Angeles and heading to Dallas. We're really interested in the north area, Addison/Carrollton/Plano. We need to find an apartment, our problem is finding an area that is decent.

It seems like I keep finding properties that look good, then read a review that says the area is very 'ghetto'. (Their words, not mine.) While I know crime is up all over Dallas, I can't believe that every area north of Dallas with decent apartments is just a break-in waiting to happen.

So what's the verdict? Can anyone give me the 411 on these areas and what parts I should avoid? (I can even do with street boundaries, the sites I'm using to apartment hunt all have Google tied in so I know exactly where they're located. Much gratitude in advance!

Fencon III: Alan Dean Foster, Jim Butcher, Heather Alexander are featured guests
Alan Dean Foster, Award-Winning Author, To Headline FenCon III: Science Fiction Literary Convention To Feature More Than 60 Writers, Artists, and Singers

Alan Dean Foster, award winning creator of works such as the Spellsinger series and the Pip and Flinx series as well as the author of over one hundred books and several movie adaptations including Alien, Clash of the Titans, The Last Starfighter, Starman, and Splinter of the Mind’s Eye (Star Wars), will be Guest of Honor at FenCon III (www.fencon.org), a literary science fiction/fantasy and filk convention scheduled for September 22-24, 2006, at the Holiday Inn Select North Dallas in Dallas, Texas.

Along with Foster, FenCon III will feature Pegasus award-winning musician Heather Alexander as Music Guest of Honor. Alexander has performed on several albums, either as a vocalist, composer, instrumentalist, or arranger. Using her guitar, fiddle and/or bodhran, Alexander performs original and traditional Celtic music that excites audiences of all ages. Her album Wanderlust, a collection of original music based on traditional Celtic themes, has been described by Dirty Linen Magazine as "tunes and stories that rarely fail to delight, especially with that incredible voice and wild fiddle playing”.

Jim Butcher, Toastmaster, is best known as the author of the "Dresden Files" series of fantasy detective novels as well as the "Codex Alera" series. The Dresden Files is currently in development as a series for the Sci-Fi Channel. A martial arts enthusiast with fifteen years of experience in various styles, Butcher is also a skilled rider and has worked as a summer camp horse wrangler and has performed in front of large audiences in both drill riding and stunt riding exhibitions. Butcher enjoys fencing, singing, bad science fiction movies and live-action gaming.

Hugo award-winning and Nebula award-nominated author and editor Lawrence Watt-Evans, Special Guest, will be leading FenCon's writers workshop. This intense series of sessions is the perfect way for an aspiring writer to sharpen skills and to polish that unpublished manuscript. Watt-Evans is the author of more than thirty novels, over one hundred short stories, over one hundred and fifty published articles, and a few comic books.

The artwork of Darrell K. Sweet, Artist Guest of Honor, can be found on numerous science fiction and fantasy book covers. Hugo-nominated as Best Professional Artist in 1983, Sweet’s painted covers include books by Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, Lawrence Watt-Evans, and perhaps most famously Robert Jordan's "Wheel of Time" series. FenCon III will mark the first Dallas appearance by this legendary artist.

An exciting science fiction convention, FenCon III will offer numerous activities including informative and instructional panels, an art show, filk concerts, a video room, an open gaming area, and a costume contest.

More than 60 guests, including writers such as Jane Archer, Rachel Caine, P. N. Elrod, John Steakley, and Shanna Swendson; filk singers such as Leslie Fish, the Brobdingnagian Bards, and the Bedlam Bards; and artists such as David Lee Anderson, Brad Foster, Joy Marie Ledet, and James O’Barr, are scheduled to appear at this three-day event, offering their expertise and experience in several venues for attendees. Filk concerts (folk music with a science fiction twist) will run all day Saturday. The dealers’ room will house more than twenty vendors selling merchandise ranging from books to shirts to jewelry.

This is an incredible opportunity to gain insights and tips from an incredible list of Science Fiction and Fantasy authors and artists and to experience a convention with a major focus on Filk.

I notice that we've got some new people here. Give us a piece of information!

Here's mine.

There's going to be a convention here in about two weeks. It's called All-Con, and it's going to be in Dallas. If you are interested in comics, science fiction, fantasy, gaming or any other sort of stuff like that, it looks like it's going to be really neat.

Also, my husband and I ate at the Tipperary Inn yesterday for lunch. They are an Irish pub. Very good food, and any place that serves Guinness on tap earns my vote of approval. They are going to be having a "small" shindig with live music and the likes for St. Patrick's Day. They say to arrive by noon for the evening's festivities.

Alright folks!
Things are kind of quiet right now, considering that I made the journal less than five minutes ago, but let's see what we can do with this thing. Got a question that you need to ask? Go ahead. Got some information to share? Please do! We'd love to hear from you.
