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.

Wondercon 2015 Photos! 

Crowds & Food Trucks

First time at Wondercon, I had a great time.  Hilariously interesting panels, friendly people and amazing costumes.  Food trucks for miles supplemented the usual con food.  Similar to Comic Con in spirit, but not in scope.  Wondercon lacked the sweltering crowds and with them, much of the lines.  This more intimate setting afforded more direct fan interaction.  I saw creators hugging fans and levels of joy and enthusiasm that could almost approximate wonder.

…And there were robots.
