My friends Beau & Matt made a series of videos that aired at Dragon*Con about a pair of handpuppet janitors named Bob & Carl who clean up after the con is over, while talking about sci-fi topics. They’re really funny, and by far the best thing I’ve ever seen air on Dragon*Con TV. I thought I’d share a few of them here for my fellow geeks. You can also check them out on Facebook or Twitter.
Dragon*Con 2010 has come & gone, so I figure it’s time for a little wrap up. I forgot to purchase my pass ahead of time, so I just ended up buying the 2-day Saturday/Sunday pass (although I did go ahead and preregister for next year while it’s cheap.) And also per usual, I didn’t go in costume, although I keep telling myself that one of these days I will. I did, however, take lots of photos.
We ended up playing a few games while we were there. The first was the Photobomb game, where I’d take pictures of cosplayers while one of my friends stood in the background making weird faces.
The other game was Jayne Hat Punch Buggy, courtesy of my friend Nate. It’s like the classic game, except you punch your friend whenever you spot someone wearing a Jayne hat. Despite losing terribly, Freeze decided to buy a hat to commemorate the occasion.
I didn’t go to too many panels, and the ones I did tended to be smaller ones (I’ve had my fill of waiting in line for an hour.) I checked out three writing panels of varying quality, an independent film panel on using your DSLR for filmmaking (which I intend to do for my next short), and a Gargoyles panel featuring Jonathan Frakes & Marina Sirtis.
And now, a few choice photos:
