Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

I guess I am in San Diego as well. (Comic-Con!!)

    Uggh. Looks like theyre mostly gone and have given like, 30 tickets to random places who are now releasing them. Randomly. All over the internet. Impossible for me to find. Except for like, http://www.comicbookresources.com/contest/capscreening this contest. But I have the worst luck with contests. BLuhbluhbluh

    I did the twitter one. If I win a ticket I will trade it to one of you in exchange for 7 minutes in heaven with the person of my choice Robert Khoo

    Pagers were rad as hell.

    "Do I want to call this person back? No."

    Now I have to deal with voicemail.

    Ugh.


    Still can't live without my iPhone.

    Hey guys? It'd be pretty awesome if we all brought some nice clothes in case fancy stuff went down.

    Plus, I've found that if you walk around conventions in a suit and walk with purpose people assume you are important and get out of your way.

    1. Merely getting tickets (non-pro pass) to SDCC felt like a contest.
    2. Now they're having contests and drawings to see who gets to "win" to go to screenings/autograph sessions/whatever.

    What's the point of scrambling for a ticket when your odds of seeing things you want to see are based on random contests?

    I'm sure it will all be fun and whatnot when we get there...but still. This is dumb to me.

  • FizFiz Registered User regular
    Wait until you wait hours to get into a panel for a thing you like, only to find out that nobody left after the previous panel ended so they can't let anybody else in.

    Then while you are sitting there fuming the line moves up one and they explain that somebody get into a fight over a chair inside the hall and stabbed a guy in the eye with a pen.

    I never got that pen back so who is the real victim here?

    downtown SD is actually pretty temperate in the evening. a suit would be A OK.

    actually, it'd be hilarious if we all went in suits.

    This happens pretty much everywhere people do not normally wear nice clothes.

    Man, if this is really a thing, I am busting out the suede blazer.

  • FizFiz Registered User regular
    Don't forget to bring things like hand sanitizer and vitamins. Comic-Con is disgusting with the way people show up sick and touch everything with their stupid fat hands.

    Houk if you see this and you actually got me a fan in Japan I will be needing it during the convention for my Manila Luzon cosplay. I considered Carmen Carrera but I don't want to bring that much fish. Don't want to be groped left and right. Just left.

    Yes bring nice clothes for the evening. I might (will) be getting drunk and singing at dinner every night.

    Oh man! Yeah I will try to remember where I stashed that and go dig it out. I'll be driving down from OC Thursday night, so you can get it anytime after that.

    That sounds great, although I will only be there for the Khoo event. But I am perfectly willing to spend the whole day at work in a wine-colored suede blazer, brown slacks and a tie if it means showing up classy for ice cream with Robert Khoo.

    If you don't mind a little walking, there's a place I adore in Little Italy that has great gelato and other food things. Checking the hours now.

    There's also an Indian place right by the convention center with a good lunch buffet. I'd suggest the buffet because the service is so lousy

    Goddamnit, work scheduled me for Sunday regardless of the fact that I asked for it off. They gave me every single other day off and then went and goofed. Now I gotta spend the next three days trying to pass that shift off on someone.

    You may as well go back up for Sunday. There are no good panels that day and I can always give the pass to some of my local buds who would kill to just walk around the exhibit hall and pretend they are part of the craze.

    Plus I'd have a night to myself in the hotel <_< >_> <_>

    umm

    this is a little awkward, but am I the only one who's going to be underage?

  • BarcardiBarcardi All the Wizards Registered User regular
    Note to everyone that is actually going. Lookup the Mission Brewery, its close by and no one will be there because its kinda out of the way from the gaslamp. It is a good place to go for drinks (not food).

    Anywho, looking forward to this now. Was just out there tonight, they are already hanging gigantic movie posters on the hotels. There is a big one for Cowboys and Aliens already 80% up.

  • NadsNads Bob Ducca Asleep in a cul-de-sac.Registered User, ClubPA regular

    It is actually tasty. It's like a cordial. Or, I guess, if you were drinking chocolate milk and the more you drank the more you got drunk. That's how it feels for me
