Comic Con 2013 (July 17 - 21)
« on: July 13, 2013, 07:00:07 am »

Man, I didn't even realize that Comic Con was less than a week away. I thought it wasn't happening till the end of the month this year for some reason. Not sure if I'm gonna go this year. It may come down to a last minute decision. Some of the panels do look good this year, especially that of the 20th Anniversary of The X-Files with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson expected to attend, but not yet confirmed. My money is definitely on them being there. This is the event no stars are dumb enough to miss.

I wasn't able to get tickets two years ago and I haven't had enough scratch to go back since.  I will say that I'm looking forward to the year that we all go and run into each other.  Penny Can Meet-Up party!

You know, every year, I always say that is my last year going to Comic Con and I'm usually pretty good at sticking to my word.....all the way up to like a few hours before the doors open. All bets are off by then as I make a mad dash downtown and through the convention center. Ha. I can't believe I ever did the four-day thing. It was easier back even 10 years ago. To do a four-day event now is never going to happen. One day is enough for me. Sensory overload.

Coming in from out of town, I like the four day option (though I usually have to skip Sunday in order to fly back).  And my senses and my feet can TOTALLY take the days and days of wandering around.

But yeah, I miss how it was ten years ago as well, when you could, if you needed to, spread your arms out while on the aisle or walk into a panel that you were interested in (or heck, get into a panel at ALL!)  And the last time I went I started to seriously party (ever go to the TRS parties, Chip?) so of course I'm missing that now.

You know, they shot an episode of Beetleborgs at SDCC in 96 or 97 and it blows my mind how EMPTY the place looks... it's freakish!  It's like seeing pictures of your place from the day before you moved in, "this place once looked like THIS?"

Oh man, you and I and old Mac hittin' the town together?  Then we could cause some trouble!

And I think my best friend (who I haven't seen in FOREVER) might be at Comic-Con this year for Space Command, so naturally I won't be there to see him.  Just my luck.

It was also easier to horde as much swag as possible back then as well. They even had better stuff if you ask me. Everything from Posters to Comics that became collectible the moment you picked them up. Nowadays, a lot of it is junk and throwaways. I never did the parties and I didn't even know about the TRS parties since I was very late to the game with that show. I'm still on the fence about going this year. I will know by Tuesday if that bug hits. Probably when I start seeing the endless parade of Hot Chicks in their Cos Play attire will I suddenly need to go. Haha.

Another motivation factor that I always enjoy is getting to test out Demo's of upcoming games that are in the pipeline before they hit the streets. The most recent demo's I played at the Con were of course Batman Arkham City, SSX, Hitman Absolution, Tomb Raider and of course Gears Of War 3. I highly doubt it, but if they had working Demo's for both PS4 and Xbox One, with the new batch of next gen games, I'd stop my whining and definitely go this year.

Stay strong, Chip... stay strong... with SDCC in town everything six blocks out from the Convention Center will be vacant!  It'll be like Walking Dead without the Zombies!  Think of the fun!

Actually, I'm pretty sure they are doing the Zombie Obstacle Course thing again this year. So, there's that.......

Speaking of obstacle courses, did you see the pictures of Molly Quinn as Mara Jade at Course Of The Force?

Nope.



Also applies to videos too!  ;D

Instagram so no embedding, but...

Picture One

The outfit kinda reminds me of the Amy Pond police woman outfit from Doctor Who.

Preview Night starts today. Can't wait to start watching sh*t online to see what this year has to offer. That's the great thing about YouTube. You really don't have to stress over 'not getting in' to the panels you want to attend. 95% of the time, whatever panel you fancy, it ends up online in full. Sure, most are poorly shot with their Cell Phone Cams, but it's better than nothing.
