Comic Con 2019 wraps up!

Matt Groening signing at 2019 Comic Con

It was an incredible surprise visit to Comic Con!  Exhausting and exhilarating!  I finally made it to a Simpsons panel thanks to a very special fan of my own who provided me with a most coveted invite. I saw some incredible costumes, amazing artwork, and talented performers.  I bought too many t-shirts and not enough comics and artwork. I went to an awesome panel on building communities in Sci-Fi and it turned into just an insightful talk on all manner of writing topics by some incredible writers (only some of which i have already read).  Let’s just say that i have a pile of new books to read now.  Until next year!

Good Omens screening last night left me champing at the bit!

Neil Gaiman introducing good omens at screening

The first episode was a great start to what i know will be an entertaining and darkly hilarious madcap adventure.  Waiting for the remaining episodes will be the difficult part.  Neil Gaiman delivered a brief and amusing introduction. Tasty nibbles were provided. Though this work is originally from nearly 30 years ago, i only read it a few months ago.  Perfect timing (i did not know the show was coming).

This small exhibit includes audio/video recordings from the Daily Show cast as well as Trump Survivors.  Even a set with a golden toilet and props to pose with. (i had to grab a tie, but it wasn’t long enough for me).  We were given name tags upon our arrival complete with nickname (mine was “Buzzkill be3n”).  you can see the whole exhibit in under an hour.  well worth the visit!

Surprise visit from Nathan Fillion to my living room!

be3n with Nathan Fillion

Even Captan Hammer needs tech support! I am always delighted to be awesome in the presence of someone who’s work i respect and admire.  Forest was furious as soon as she recovered from the shock of it!  She asked me to help tidy, not two hours earlier.  I am a master procrastinator where cleaning is concerned.  “Lets just watch TV instead,” I said. This may have hurt those efforts for years to come.
