TITANO!!!

If you loved old monster movies from the 1930s and 1950s, TITANO is right up your alley. A short tribute film directed by Ben Chavda and starring Irwin Keyes, TITANO is a look into the life of an old character actor who is able to play the role of a lifetime in a surprising turn of events. Endearing and slightly melancholy, the short is a wonderful tribute, and even more poignant as Irwin Keyes died shortly after filming was completed.

AUGH! It’s Whitey Bulger!

Ant-Man Ain’t bad…

But it ain’t great either. One of the most exciting parts of any superhero story is the setup. How a hero becomes a hero. Their backstory; how they come to terms with this new power or responsibility; the inherent tension between the want to use this new ability for good versus selfish reasons-it is all such good fodder because it’s so human, and as viewers, we can live vicariously through these people who are either thrust or born into these situations. We get to live with them as human before they become super.

SDCC ’15 (Veteran) Recap part 1!

So, it’s been a week of ‘post comic con blues’ AND it’s about that time to relive the 5 days that were perhaps the BEST ‘con for this 15 year veteran!

The prep:

IMG_7151  IMG_7194  IMG_7207 IMG_7204

Make sure you bring water! I suggest a double insulated bottle to keep your liquids cool for 24 hours. I was rockin my new S’well bottle this year. Definitely helpful for those long waits in the Hall H line!

Pack light, bring a day bag, and buy snacks! Convention food isn’t always the greatest, but having your choice snacks with you could hold you over till you reach real sustenance.

Traveling by land, sea, or air? The view from the train down to San Diego is quite gorgeous.

FINALLY!!!!! Scoring a hotel at SDCC is an impossible task.. But if you’re lucky, the luxury of staying in gaslamp allows you to quickly recharge (Gadgets and Body), unload (Swag and Bowels), shower, and sleep.

Check in, drop your luggage, explore gaslamp, grab a beer/ ‘fish and chips’ at the Tin Fish (Annual Tradition), and swing by the convention center to pick up your badge.

San Diego Comic Con Off-Site Recap

San Diego Comic Con is AWESOME.  From secret Star Wars concerts to candle light ceremonies that remind us to Always Keep Fighting.  The mecha of nerd-dom always delivers.  Even when a heavy hitter like Marvel doesn’t show up.  And when you’re as awesome as SDCC truly is, you’re going to attract some company.

That’s where I come in.  Every year I head to San Diego from my small Michigan town, and every year I go WITHOUT a badge to SDCC.  Sometimes I acquire one through networking, sometimes there are years where I never even attempt to.  That’s because there are so many off-site events that are equally as fun as what the SDCC “mothership” has to offer.

The Walking Dead Escape, The Nerdist’s Laser Tag, Zachary Levi’s NerdHQ panels, the Assassin’s Creed Obstacle Course, dance parties, plenty of interactive gaming areas, different photo opportunities like this year’s Heroes Reborn experience, or sitting on the Iron Throne (you’ll find future posts outlining all of these amazing experiences).  And that’s on top of what one of the coolest downtowns in the country already offers in the Gaslamp District, not to mention all the new nerds in the area.

If you’re spending all of your time in the San Diego Convention Center, you’re not truly experiencing what Comic Con brings to the table, and you’re not making the most out of your nerd-cation.  And let’s be honest, if you can’t manage to land a SDCC badge there’s still so much fun to be had!  Do yourself a favor, if you pledge allegiance to nerd-dom, make sure Sunny San Diego is on your list of destinations for July.  Every.  Single.  Year.

UPDATE from Comic Con 2015 Babblers

AUGH! Comic Con is an internet wasteland! Fellow Babblers Sean and Johnny have been trying to send updates, but it has been as though they’ve been transported to the 90s, and finding good internet connections have been rarer than Gjallerhorn drops in Destiny.

BUT they’ve pushed through, and here’s a sneak peak of Sean at Nerd HQ discussing Project Morpheus with Playstation Move. Just SOME of the awesome we’ll be discussing once they get back.

Oh~~ be still my heart!
