My geek pedigree took a hit last weekend when I was (apparently) the only geek on the planet who didn't make the trek out to ComicCon.
It's not that I didn't want to go, mind you. It's just that silly things like paying the mortgage and having food took a priority in my life. I know, I know, if I were a true fan, I'd get the house foreclosed on and live in a van down by the river...either that or sell t-shirts on-line to help raise money for myself. Alas, I'm not nearly in the same realm of celebity that Dustin "Screech" Diamond is, so I had to content myself with learning about what went on at ComicCon via the Internet.
Man, what did we do in the days before we had the Internet and we had to wait weeks or months to hear reports of panels taking place at conventions?
I guess we just chiseled out the results on a cave wall and then hoped people would read them.
But back to my point...lots of interesting info on upcoming shows, movies, comic books, etc. It's probably good I didn't go because I'd be on geek overload after a weekend in which I could find out more about Spider-Man 3
, the return of Babylon Five, Star Trek, Lost, Heroes
(I'm really intrigued by this one), Battlestar Galactica
and more. In fact, had I gone, Ron Moore would have have to issue a restraining order for me becuase I'd be begging him and offering up huge sums of cash for him to just ship the rough footage of the new epiosdes to my house so I could tell him if it was "good enough."
Oh and don't worry....I'd totally invite y'all over to help me "review" the footage. For a small nominal fee, of course...
