don't get me wrong... i hear ya, and often times i would heavily lobby against most things 'purist' as evidenced by something as simple as my musical tastes. problem is, there are certain facets of my life that prohibit me from being able to plan so far in advance for something like this, and the ever increasing gaggle of non-geeks gives me preemptive heartburn - to the point that i don't think i could stomach the nausea i'm sure to encounter because of such a large mob and having to at least feel the compulsion to fast-track rather than meander... and take in that nerdy fanboy effervescence in all its glory.

the last one i went to was the Revenge of the Sith-ic Con, so i think i ended on a high... farting was still funny then, whereas now it seem the general climate would think it grodie!

Well, I got one this year. No bitching for the next 365 days from me on the ordering process this time. It went WAY smoother on this end I thought. Having said that, I'd STILL like them to give people more notice than one day. It sorta still feels gimmicky like that. Sucks for people out of town or waiting on a check or something.
Anyway, since there probably won't be any BIG movies that I'm interested in this year, I'll be looking to catch some small stuff and have more fun this time around.

So Friday starts Wondercon in Anaheim.
My wife & I are going Friday and then my brother and me are going Saturday.
If anyone else is going and might like to meet up and put a face to internet handle I would not mind. I might even bring a couple of Itoya books with some of our collection if anyone would like to see them.
Feel free to PM me if you would like.

So it turns out I was not the only guy wearing Kings gear at Wondercon today. Saw at least four other guys in Kings stuff and one in not in Kings gears who yelled "Go kings!" at me as we passed each other.
Saw only one dude in a ducks hat!
We rule Wondercon!!!
On a side note I met Danzig today! Got to talk to him for a bit and much to my surprise he very cool and friendly. I had heard for the last number of years he was, well, an a-hole and he could not have been nicer.
Anyways it is always sweet to meet someone you liked as a kid and were a fan of and they be cool when you finally meet them.
