There will also be discussion of the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, and Michigan Wolverines. Probably in that order.

Sunday, November 17, 2002  
Hello. I know it's been a while since I blogged last, but school work has been inconceivably evil and that's all that I have to say about that.

Today I went to a sci fi/comic book convention.

It was incredible. For one thing, the sorts of people who showed up for this event... o, it was wonderous. There were two guys in military gear wandering around, which I did not understand. There were some kids in Star Trek uniforms. There was a rather overweight man in tight black vinyl pants. There were people whose hair was infinitely more colorful than mine. There was every sort of shifty, creepy, sketchy person that you could ever imagine. Some of them were just sad, but some of them were funny. It's really kind of hard to describe unless you saw them yourself. Compared to these people, I felt so well-groomed. I mean, it was as though I was the only one there who had actually showered that morning.
And then, of course, there was the convention itself. Dominick Keating (Lt. Malcolm Reed on Enterprise) was there, and he's British, you know. He's kinda cute. I saw him, but the line to get his autograph was enormous, so I didn't bother with that.

Gigi Edgely (Chi'ana from Farscape) was there. She looked like she was my age. It was a little hard to recognize her without the makeup (she's blue on the show), but when she spoke I recognized her voice right away. I felt a little bad for her. There were two enormous lines to meet Dominick Keating and some guy from Buffy, but there were only a few people for her. The best was this enormously fat guy in a green Tshirt who was hanging around her, kind of gazing at her and walking all around her for a while. How freaky can you get?

Anthony Simcoe was also there (D'argo from Farscape). I got my picture taken with him. He was another one that was hard to recognize without the makeup, but the voice was recognizable, and D'argo was also really tall, and he was pretty damn tall. He sounded Austrailian, or something. He was actually really, really nice. We had a lovely little chat, since he wasn't Keating or Mr. Buffy, and therefore did not have an enormous line. He asked my name, and when I told him he got all excited. He said it was 'beautiful' and that he hadn't heard it before (I get that a lot). Then he said he had heard a lot of interesting names this weekend and I said 'I'll bet' and he laughed. Farscape is getting cancelled (*sniff sniff*) but he said he had already been signed for another show, so that's good. But he was a really quite a nice, personable guy and I am quite glad that I met him.

O, this is funny. Before I went up to Anthony Simcoe, I was kind of hanging around the general area. This old guy comes up to him and they started talking. Well, it turned out that the old guy does Antiques Roadshow. He told Anthony Simcoe this, and Anthony started yelling "No! Antiques Roadshow! I was just talking to someone about that show! I love Antiques Roadshow!!!!" It was wicked funny. I mean, come on. The Farscape sci fi actor gets incredibly excited about Antiques Roadshow. I thought it was awesome.

This is the Farscape website, in case you'd like to see what that's all about: Sci Fi's Farscape

There were also a number of comic book artists there. I was looking around. Most of them weren't all that good, and I hadn't heard of most of them. But I saw this one guy whose work looked really familiar to me. I went up to him and started looking at the stuff that he had out on his table, and I realized that I had actually seen his comic book artwork in stores before! I mean, this guy actually was getting published by DC and Marvel! His name is Craig Rousseau. Here's his website, Craig, where you can see some of his artwork and whatnot, if you so desire.

Anyways, I bought one of his drawings (Batman), and he signed it for me, and he didn't even charge for it, which is insanity at one of these conventions, where they would charge you for breathing if they could. He was also really nice, and we chatted about comic books. He mostly does Batman (that was the stuff of his that I had seen before), and he also did the Batman Beyond stuff, which I thought was very cool, and also Impulse. His work is really nice, it's very stylized and elegant. Very different from a lot of the overblown stuff you'll see out there these days.

I also got the 'I WANT TO BELIEVE' poster. You know. The one that Mulder has hanging in his office. Yes, I got the very same poster. You know you're jealous.

Anyways, the other stuff that was at this convention was truly crazed. They were selling lightsabers for like $300. Sheesh! If the thing is going to cost that much, I want it to be a real lightsaber! Alas, they were not. Rip off.

There were also several booths of real, honest-to-cats swords, knives, axes, and other assorted leather/metal objects of indeterminate function. These booths were creepy. As I'm sure you can well imagine. I'm not entirely sure what weaponry has to do with either sci fi or comic books, but I guess it's just the sort of thing that they break out for every convention like this. This also explained the people in military uniform.

There was a booth of plates painted with Star Trek stuff. There was a plate with the 4 captains on it (Star Trek, Next Generation, Deep Space 9 and Voyager... I guess Enterprise is still too new). This stuff was beyond hideous. I laughed.

There were some Star Trek charicatures that were actually pretty funny. The realistically painted stuff was the very height of cheesiness, though. I cannot imagine buying it. But, you know, there were people there who were buying it.

There was the usual action figures, Tshirts, posters, etc.

There was more, but I must run.

Hee hee hee. I love sci fi/comic book conventions. Good times, good times.

And SO funny.
