An incredible dialog with Sir Patrick Stewart about his childhood, family, Shakespeare, and Star Trek. The appearance was to promote his recently published memoir, “Making it so.” 500 copies were given away at the event, including one to myself. Amazingly, they only forbid video and flash photography. I was able to grab some pics and a pretty solid audio recording. enjoy.
I visited some of the sites from the infamous southwest meth series. the chicken site wasn’t serving, but the car wash was operating. They did an incredible job for a great price and I went site seeing while they worked.
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!

Finally done with the work part, i am able to explore the con. panels, shopping, and incredible costumes, oh my!
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!
