San Diego Comic Con 2010 Report  
WE ARE BACK from San Diego as of yesterday evening! And since Pura keeps bugging me to do it, here's my con report! Also, it's probably best to do these things while they're still fresh in my mind.

Wednesday )

Thursday )

Friday )

Saturday )

Sunday and Swag )

AND SO that was this year's Comic Con! Pura should have a bunch of pictures and video, since I lack a camera. The weather was lovely throughout...not boiling hot, but not freezing. Fun and exhausting as always, but very happy that I got to meet some people that I haven't seen in forever, or haven't seen before. (Although I'm sorry I missed you, [livejournal.com profile] sillywhims!)

For now, today is relaxing a lot and chilling with the awesome Pura, who is sadly leaving me tomorrow. ;_; I'll probably be back to the internets fully on Wednesday.

Drawing: Need to figure out what to work on next, since I have a bunch of options and a bunch of stuff to get done.

Obligatory heading to con post  
Well, aside from my car getting smashed up and all, it was a pretty good weekend! My brother was kind enough to lend me his car until we went and got a rental yesterday, so we were able to do everything we planned! This included Disneyland on Saturday (my birthday and Disneyland's birthday) with [livejournal.com profile] purapea, [livejournal.com profile] ggmoonycrisco, [livejournal.com profile] yamikonumber7 and [livejournal.com profile] universejuice! Yes it was crowded and hot, but we still managed to do everything that we set out to do. We rawked all over the place.

Sunday, I took GG and Pura out to Hollywood, where they were able to get their tourist on with the walk of the stars and the major theaters like the Kodak and the Chinese Mann. We also went and saw Toy Story 3 at the El Capitan (I cried...again!) and got delicious ice creams at the soda fountain. Very successful! I'm actually glad I decided to pony up for parking instead of having us walk all the way from Gnomon.

Also had birthday dinners with friends and family on Thursday, which was also very nice! I got some sweet stuff:
- Cash for the con (much appreciated)
- This really adorable Sora amigurumi from GG
- Delicious British candies from Pura
- A new sketchbook from the fam
- The MST3K boxset XVII, which I will watch with anyone, anytime 8D

AND NOW, today will be for a little grocery shopping and packing stuff for San Diego, with bonus Traditional Con Freakout Time. I don't have a laptop to take along, so you probably won't be hearing from me on the internets until I get back. I can't wait to see both old and new friends there!

Oh, and before I go: two new Lunargyros pages, and they're up here.

And now the busy-awesome begins  
Hey dudes, just an FYI, you are unlikely to see me around the internets (especially AIM) for the next two weeks or so! Awesome folk [livejournal.com profile] purapea and [livejournal.com profile] ggmoonycrisco are coming over, so we'll be romping about California and Disneyland and other fun things in the next few days! And then next week is Comic Con (AAAAAAAA) so we'll be away at that and I don't have computery things there.

Also I will be 26 in three days I am so old and wrinkly aaaaaaaaaaaaa

I really must be, because I feel like I've been fwapped with the tired stick. Pretty sure I'm getting enough sleep, so it's not about that. Maybe it's the sudden heat...the July gloom FINALLY burned off yesterday, so now it's getting to be really hot. Here's hoping traffic and crowds are kind on Saturday!

Drawing: Some more LG

Comic Con schedule  
HOLY COW THE CON IS SO CLOSE. Well, at least they finally put all of the schedules up, so I've marked down what I want to get to. Whether I'll be able to or not is always another matter, but this is what I want to go and see.

Thursday

11:15-12:45 – TRON Legacy – Hall H
2:00-3:00 – Disney character creation – Room 5AB
7:00 - Final Fantasy concert - Waterfront

Friday

11:30-12:30 – State of the Animation Industry – Room 9
2:30-3:30 – Nickelodeon panels, Kung-Fu Panda – Room 5AB (might do the Batman: BATB panel instead?)
4:30-5:30 – Pixar story panel – Room 26AB
5:30-6:30 – Concept Design with Alex and Avatar Designer – 5AB (maybe)
7:00-8:00 – RiffTrax Live – Room 6DE (might do an industry party instead)

Saturday

10:30-11:30 - Film Illustrations and Storyboards - Room 24ABC
11:30-12:30 - TUFF Puppy with Butch Hartman - Room 24ABC
4:30-5:30 - Epic Mickey - Room 9
8:30-11:30 - Masquerade - Room 5, 6 or Ballroom 20

Aaaand I didn't see anything that I really wanted to get to on Sunday.

I'm kind of shocked that there was only one Hall H thing that I really had to get to this year, but maybe that's for the better...less braving the madness that is Hall H. XD

And of course, I want to see everyone there that I don't normally get to see! If you're going, let's pick a time to meet up, dudes!

In the meanwhile, got a big ol' list of chores and other things to do this week...

Drawing: Probably starting some concept stuff next, plus LG.

MEME ATTACK  
Before I get to a zillion memes, some random stuff:

- There's a new Lunargyros page, you can read it here.
- I now have a Blog! I am going to use my Blog account mainly for posting random art and stuff, so if you have a Blogger and want to watch me, go ahead! I'll keep posting some arts stuff here, too, just because I don't think I can ever leave LJ. Just Blogger is a nice place to keep updating on creative/random stuff while my LJ is more for my fannish loves. XD
- Does anyone out there know how pro registration for Comic Con 2010 is working? Apparently 4-day passes are sold out, but they haven't even opened pro registration yet. And pro registration is pretty much automatic "four days and preview night" pass. Emailing Comic Con basically got me the same thing (That pro reg isn't open yet; we'll let you know when it is) so that wasn't helpful.
- GUYS WHEN YOU RESPOND TO THE CHRISTMAS CARD POST, PLEASE TELL ME WHAT KIND OF CARD YOU WANT! THANK YOU!

Okay, now a meme flood...

Questions meme )

Aaaand I tag [livejournal.com profile] bouncy_erbear, [livejournal.com profile] daisy_the_mage1, [livejournal.com profile] ecojak, [livejournal.com profile] ghettopeach, [livejournal.com profile] loveotter, [livejournal.com profile] sbcpanuru, [livejournal.com profile] purafag and [livejournal.com profile] universejuice.

AND NOW, AS IF THIS ISN'T FLOODING YOUR FLIST ENOUGH

Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever music player you have on random.
Step 2: Post a line/stanza from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing the song.
Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 4: Bold the songs when someone guesses correctly


Music meme )
