Comic Con a bust Gen Con here we come!on August 13, 2012 at 9:07 pm
Comic Con Chicago 2012 did not happen for me this year but it wasn’t from lack of trying. A week ago I had come to the conclusion that there was no way I had the time or extra funds to make the trip alone to the windy city but last-minute a friend showed interest in going with me. Out of excitement I scraped the money together and purchased my ticket ahead of time to save the $10 at the door and come Saturday my Comic Con buddy went MIA. I still haven’t heard from him and hope everything is alright and hope he contacts me before Gen Con since I have a press pass waiting for him there. Regardless it sucks that I missed it but it has allowed me more time to focus on the real convention GEN CON! Ironically enough on the other side of the country both David DeMoss (@AYTIWS) and Mike (@GreyMatterSplat) were at Geek Girl Con in Seattle Washington. I had really hoped that they could meet up but unfortunately it didn’t work out. In the future we have plans to all do the Traumatic Cinematic Show together which will be a blast. Those two guys nerdiness make me look like a prep! Also the photos you see on this page are ones taken by David DeMoss at Geek Girl Con.
Speaking of the Traumatic Cinematic Show I have decided to take a break until after Gen Con passes. I have had some minor issues with co-hosts running off and bettering their lives (you know I mean that is a good way right?) and I really want to change the show up a bit since it is getting close to a year old. Hopefully I will get some good audio from Gen Con this weekend and toss a recap show together with all sorts of fun people and topics. I know for sure I will have hundreds of new pictures for the photo gallery so look forward to that.
