fanexpo '14 - year of the doctor

Once again, I planned on skipping FanExpo. And once again, they announced guests that I had to see. This year, it was Matt Smith and Arthur Darvill (Karen Gillan too but she cancelled last minute). Spent a lot of time on my feet helping out at my cousin's booth. I was dead tired by Sunday afternoon. Thank heavens Monday was a holiday. I already know I'm going next year - a friend of mine really wants to meet Stephen and chances are very good he will be there.

They keep changing the celebrity autograph area layout and this year, well, it was impossible to get any pics of the celebs unless I went to their panel. I went to 3 panels: Matt Smith, Doctor Who (Matt & Arthur) and Stephen Amell. My photo ops were with them as well.

Matt Smith

Matt Smith & Arthur Darvill (I find Arthur ridiculously good looking that it annoys me)

Stephen Amell (total sweetheart)

post of stuff

LAST WEEKEND: CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) with Rina & Shirley. We ate Korean tacos & Rina had her first beaver tail (next time, deep fried mars bars!). Watched the ice skating show with Virtue & Moir. I was finally introduced to the cuteness that is the SuperDogs. Can't believe I've been going to the CNE since I was child and never saw the SuperDogs. Ended the day with a Nick Carter concert.

THIS WEEKEND: FanExpo. I'm so tired. I think I'm going to miss today cause I need a day of rest LOL If I can barely handle FanExpo, how would I survive ComicCon?

IN-BETWEEN: I discovered this web series called Husbands. It's written by Brad "Cheeks" Bell (an ex of Adam Lambert, I believe?) and Jane Espenson of Buffy & Caprica fame. The second season just started & I clicked the link on a whim. The first season was 11 short episodes, a few minutes each. The second season will be 3 episodes of about 8 minutes.

The series is about a recently out baseball player, Brady, who gets drunk married in Vegas to flamboyant actor, Cheeks and what happens. It's actually amazing how much they could fit in such a short time frame. And lots of cameos!!

Here's the first episode

I think I got my AVPM/AVPS quotes mixed up. Oh well! LOL Dropped into the Fan Expo after work today mainly to walk around while it wasn't too crowded, get a feel of the layout & drop by my cousin's booth. Checked out the autograph signing area and guess who was still signing away?! Tom Felton \o/

Hopefully more pics tomorrow!

next best thing

As much as I would love to experience Comic Con, I think it's just so better to stay home and watch all the panels on-line. No money spent, no crowds, no hours upon hours of queuing. I'll go once though. My cousin gets a booth there & it would be such a waste of an opportunity if I didn't (they actually had an extra badge this year but I couldn't make it on such short notice).

Anyway. Some awesome stuff out of Comic Con!



Bradley being Bradley ♥

I can't get over giggly Tony Head. And Colin! Sweet, adorable Colin *glomps* Watched a really crappy video of the S4 trailer and I WANTS NEW MERLIN NOW.


Loved Harry's gleeful, "you got a name, good job!" So glad to hear Bieste will be back. And the news out of Comic Con is that Chord turned down the opportunity to return to Glee so no more Sam :(

So far, I've already watched the full panels for Community and The Big Bang Theory. Still so much to watch.

this is not the post you're looking for

OK OK I know I promised the Harry Potter World post and I AM WORKING ON IT RIGHT NOW. I SWEAR.

In the meantime, enjoy some random awesomeness.

Cory's delightful Gemini opening sketch video

Matt Smith on Craig Ferguson. Ferguson being an utter DW fanboy was delightful.

Hey, the Supernatural Creation Con is coming to town! Should I go?? Anyone going?? If anything, I might get a day ticket or something. I know I swore off Creation cons (those greedy bastards!) but it's like the boys will be in town, how could I not go?

OK back to working on those HP pics! And to all those who will be watching DH on opening day, I'm jealous. I plan on seeing it this Sunday, hopefully!

fan expo 2010

Spent the afternoon at Fan Expo and wow, am I tired. My original plan was to go Saturday but my bro & SIL made a surprise visit so we spent the day walking through Live Green Fest, Busker Fest & TaiwanFest. It was a day of fests LOL. I was a little pissed that I couldn't make it but my cousin, who has a booth there, told me that Saturday was packed to the rafters. I guess the combination of James Marsters, Stan Lee and a really popular Japanese artist -- don't know his name, sorry! -- for Final Fantasy brought everyone to the yard LOL I guess it was a good thing I didn't go Saturday as I can't stand extreme crowding.

Walked around a bit, snapped a few photos but spent most of the time helping out at my cousin's booth. Well, more "getting in the way" vs "helping" but I tried! And I helped clean up once the con was over. Every time I see them at Fan Expo, I'm always so impressed. They had a steady stream of customers which was great. Their Alice in Wonderland stuff were selling so well with quite a few of those prints sold out. I think I'm going to snag a couple next time I visit them ;)

I really really wanted to see Marsters but unfortch, that was not to be :( But all was not lost as I was able to snap some pictures of Summer Glau, Tahmoh Penikett, Sendhil Ramamurthy and William Shatner.

Missed the Emmy opening by seconds! :( Hopefully will be able to catch via timeshifting. If that doesn't work, there's always YouTube.

I am liking this format of splitting the program into 4 major sections -- I watched Comedy (thank you for putting that first) and then switched the channel LOL

comic con goodies

So many goodies coming out of Comic Con, so little time. No SPN stuff as I'm sure most of y'all have seen it. I've only watched the gag reel myself but the quality wasn't that great.

White Collar. Matt Bomer & Tim DeKay shaking their groove LOL

Chuck How does one top last year's opening with Jeffster's rendition of Fat Bottomed Girls? This is how:

I <3 this cast so very much. Damn you cameraman, Captain Awesome was about to pop some booty but you cut away! Whyyyyyy did you that???

Merlin. S3 trailer!!!!!


Blooper reel!

As much as I love the boys and want to smush them together, giggly!Tony Head may be the best thing ever :)


Hearing fanboys go nuts is so amusing LOL
