Ah it was great and much fun was had - at least by me ;) Looking at negaduck9's friends, I guess that some of the folks we usually bump into were over at the Marriott while we were at the Hyatt. Sounds like it may be nice over there, but the lounge don't do much for me since I don't really drink at all and all the late night programming is over at the Hyatt. Well, whatever - won't worry about where to room until Feb.|
If the economy hurt D*C at all, it wasn't noticeable!! Lots o' people still; seemed like maybe less costumes, and less elaborate ones.
Feels like D*C is becoming more anime; probably partly because anime is more and more popular and partly because I just am not into the Whedonverse/Cattlecar Galatica/Star Trek/Star Wars tracks. I mean I liked Star Trek and Star Wars but not like that! (So of course the guys I know can quote the entire movies, etc.)
I haven't seen a comic book based panel that I wanted to attend since the first year I came - which I'm thinking was 2002, but I really don't know. Plenty of other stuff is interesting though, and realistically you can't go back to back on panels 'cause you miss too much stuff otherwise. hmm.. haven't caught the late evening Brod Bards either since that first year. Didn't realize that, whatever :P
Watched some fun stuff up in the room - and I don't mean DCTV (though they did have some good new bumpers). Finally watched some FMA. Got a big kick out of the fact that their father is named Hohenheim. Won't mean jack to most, but as a card-carrying alchemist AKA member of a professional chemistry fraternity (we do refer to ourselves as Brother Alchemists) I was just groaning.
Watched Mr Stain on Junk Street (or something like that). Odd stuff but interesting actually. MOTU is fun cheese :D 50's sex ed is hokey but actually better than the modern stuff. Except for the rabbit. Don't ask.
What else....oh some bootlegged Reboot. I knew it would be a semi-train wreck, but I wanted to see how bad and I want to be able to watch it again. If I wait until I get around to copying/burning my VCR tapes to DVD I'll be dead. Bought some other bootlegs, which I thought I'd never do, but I do have laserdiscs of two of them and the third.... well, if they ever get out on DVD I'll buy real ones. But obviously the production companies don't care.
Loved Kim's comment about the bed barely tolerating us.
Seems like the prime ingredient in getting into voice acting is dumb luck. And the pay evidently sucks. Which makes me wonder "Why do so many people want to get into this???" But hey, who am I do criticize? If I could chase a dream fan-girl job, it would be as a comic book inker. Right - like that'll ever happen ;)
Forgot to go to Benihana.
Hyatt's laundry detergent breaks my face out. Cleared up immediately upon getting home *grump*
(Maybe Marriott would be better....nah)
RHPS was a blast. Crazy, loud and way too late but great fun. I definitely am of the opinion that Kim is better as Frank. And those Trixie girls were.....wtf?
Okay, fading away here. Better pack up the pineapple for tonight.
PS - gotta see if BanYa has CDs - some of that music was really cool.
