We have a lot going on in the next couple of weeks, and they are indeed exciting times.
In just a couple days time myself, John, Jere, Julie, and Jonny will be heading south to Providence for the Rhode Island Comic Con. Plans that were started in February are finally going to coming together for a grand time indeed. We will be staying for two nights leaving Friday, Halloween, for the drive south. The actual con is Saturday and Sunday, the hotel we are staying at is attached to the convention center so we don’t even have to drive to it or deal with parking or anything of that nature.
Friday night is the Halloween Party, Saturday Night is an After party, Saturday and Sunday is filled with walking around the show floor, meeting people, getting photos with and autographs from celebrities of all mediums. There will be merchandise galore and some wicked cool cosplay. It’s going to be pretty awesome. Also Jay is going to meet and spend the day with us on Saturday.
I’m not going to have as much money as I would have liked so my spending on photos and autographs is going to be very selective. There is going to be a bunch of wrestlers there, but the one I’m looking forward to the most would be Brian O’Halloran who played Dante on the hit film Clerks.
There are a bunch of panels on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday I’d really like to hit “So you Want to be a voice actor”, “Star Trek Continues”, and Costume Contest. Sunday it’s “TV’s Comic Book Crimefighters” Q&A With George Takei, and “The Secrets of Warehouse 13”. I don’t know if I’ll make them all but I’m going to try. I’m surprised there is no wrestling themed panel as there are so many great wrestlers there.
Also there are gaming tournaments and a bunch of vehicles there from different movies and tv shows like the General Lee from Dukes of Hazard, the Bat Cycle from the 1960’s Batman and more. Also the RKO Army is going to be doing two live stage productions, Saturday is the Rocky Horror Picture Show and Sunday is REPO! The Genetic Opera. All the panels and the musicals and free with your admission, you just have to be willing to wait in line as seating is first come, first serve.
When I get back thought it's no rest for the weary. I have one work day and then we sign the lease on the home we are renting and we have to move it. It'll be a busy long day for sure but Wednesday November 5th we will be our first night in the new place on Oak St in Gardiner.
The Wednesday after that will be a truly exciting day as we hope to find out the sex of baby labbe.
That's all for this week
