Over at savethescc, we've talked off and on for several months about organizing a TSCC con. The Freaking Big Push took priority, though, and we're now trying to get more going on Push 2: The Resurrection. So any con talk is still saved for later, but we all really want to plan one.

Anyway, I'm just talking off the top of my head on this, nothing official and no planning committee is working on it yet...

I want a Sarah Connor Con on April 21, 2011. Judgement day. Actually, let's make it April 19-21, 2011 (if we can manage a three-day event). There's probably not enough time to plan anything for that date and even if there was, it might amount to little more than a big meet-up/party, but I really want us all to do it. I want to hang out with all my fellow TSCC fans and have nerdy fun. So let's start talking ideas. Where should it be? What would we do at this con? Any ideas floating around out there? Lemme hear 'em.

I went to a Michael Biehn and Thomas Dekker panel and Thomas gave out more info about where season 3 would go. Some of this is real spoilers, unlike the spoilery hints he gave out before. Read on )

First things first: I'm no longer afraid of flying. After making it through the flight to San Diego for Comic Con with little trouble, I was pretty sure I was over the years of fear. But this flight to Atlanta confirmed it for me. Despite the unfriendliness of the Air Tran counter people, the long security line, the bad (and extra cramped and extra uncomfortable) seat on the plain, the take-off delay, I had a good flight. I was a little nervous beforehand, but it was nothing noteworthy. Something's changed in me and it's a really good feeling. Maybe it had something to do with this awesome view.

Atlanta is a huge airport. I've been there before, but it was years ago and I'd forgotten just how big it is. But they have that cool subway thing to get you from one end to the other. And from there, we caught the MARTA that got us two blocks from our hotel. Very convenient.

The first order of business was to pick up our badges. We'd pre-registered last October and had our registration cards on the refrigerator at home. The man remembered that as we were boarding the plane. Fuuuuuuuuuck. It's not like we thought we wouldn't be able to get our badges, but we expected it to be an ordeal. Turns out it wasn't, unless you count the 2 1/2 hour line we had to wait in. But that wasn't because we'd forgotten our cards (apparently, all we needed was ID), that was just the regular badge pick-up line. They're not very efficient with that and it was a vast contrast to the 10-minutes it took to get Comic Con badges. But here it is:



On our way to the badge line, some woman said "here, sweetie", and handed the man this card. I don't know what's worse, the fact that she handed it to him in front of me or the fact that the card itself looks like it's been handed out and handed back about 8000 times. But hey, it's not just a strip club! The other side of the card promotes their fine dining menu. And really, nothing says Dragon*Con like a stripper and a good steak, right? Maybe we'll check it out ;)

Notes:
• I think I'll be rockin' the ponytail for the duration of this trip.
Even on a plane, one can keep up with Freaking Big Push missions!
• No turkey sandwich should be that big.
• 7' tall Chewbaccas are way more impressive than 5'10" Chewbaccas.
• I've really got to get more sleep.

Okay, who's going? Anyone?

I've tried in vain for weeks (maybe months?) to convince [livejournal.com profile] life_on_queen to go. She refuses. Something about Detroit and some hussies... and a pact. O_o Recently, I spent some time trying to tempt [livejournal.com profile] schmacky0 and [livejournal.com profile] aelysian with Dragon*Con. It's not exactly like I had to push. They got caught up in the idea very quickly... No. Yes. No. Maybe. We should totally go. How much is airfare? Could we split a hotel? Hee. I think they've both settled back to "no" though.

If any of you are going and want to meet up, let me know. If you're not going, you're missing out on a totally nerdtastic time. You may recall that last year's Dragon*Con was my first ever con experience. And that the man and I had so much fun in the day and a half we were there that on our way home, we decided we were going again this year. We stuck to that plan. This year, however, I'll be there for the whole thing and I'll be right in the thick of it at the Hilton.

In the meantime, I'm hoping this icky throat feeling isn't the start of something because being sick at Dragon*Con would suck.

Yes, I know I still haven't posted about Comic Con.

So tired

I had big plans to do a little post about Comic Con every night, but by the time I'd get back to my hotel, I was just too freaking tired. I'm home now, but I still don't have it in me to organize my thoughts and pictures. So much to tell. So much fun. I'll post about it all later.

In related news, I think I totally overcame my fear of flying :)

We got into the Lost panel and it was very fun. Hurley, Ben, Richard Alpert and Sawyer were there (in addition to Damon and Carlton). Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet) and Ian Somerhalder (Boone) were also here at Comic Con, but they were promoting other projects and weren't at the Lost panel. We did, however see both of them at our hotel and I actually got to meet Ian Somerhalder.

Onto the write-up about the panel (spoilers, sort of)>> )
roxybisquaint: (sarah know your exits)
In an unexpected turn of events, I've found myself oddly calm about the flight. I think I have my flist to thank for that. Seriously, you guys are awesome. *hugs you all*

I'm all packed and leaving for San Diego shortly. And I've got 4,000 TSCC stickers in my suitcase :)

I think I got my cell phone number to everyone I know who's going, but if I missed you, then just comment here or something. I'll be online later.

ETA: Hour and a half flight delay.

I've yet to buy Farscape on DVD because it's freaking expensive and it's confusing as hell trying to figure out which set is best to buy. Well, I'm glad I delayed because a complete Farscape DVD mega set (all 4 seasons) is coming out in November. It's being issued by A&E Home Entertainment to mark the 10th anniversary of the series and it's supposed to be loaded with features.

To top it off, there's going to be a Farscape panel at Comic Con to talk about it. Executive producer Brian Henson, creator Rockne O'Bannon, and stars Ben Browder and Claudia Black will be there.

Can I get a hell yeah?

Q: How do you know if you're a crazed TSCC fan?

Work has picked up considerably in recent weeks, so between that and dedicating most of my free time to Sarah Connor, LJ has sadly taken a back seat. I'm going to remedy that. I know I'm way behind on what you guys are all up to, but I'm going to catch up this weekend. In the meantime, here's what I've been up to:

I recently reorganized The Sarah Connor Society forums (also made a new skin/theme for it) and set-up a TSCC series rewatch. For that, you watch the pilot on your own then hit the new rewatch board for discussion next Wednesday (it continues with an ep a week).

A lot of my nights have been spent in the savethescc.com chatroom, brainstorming TSCC campaign ideas and socializing. We've had a petition going that's already had over 2500 signers, we've been doing emails, letters and postcards to WB, Halcyon and various networks. We've got sort of a press pack in the works to send out to those same places. Our biggest venture is a mobile billboard in Los Angeles and fundraising for that is going to kick off next week. We're going to need about $4,000, so don't be surprised when I start guilting you all into pitching in a couple dollars ;)

Comic Con is coming up, so I made some stickers for people to wear on themselves and hand out. But then we all decided there was no need to limit sticker fun to just a con. There's been a lot of excitement and chatter about the stickers for weeks now but they finally arrived from the printer today so ordering has begun. They look awesome, by the way, they really do. I fronted the money for this so I'm handling the distribution. I bought 10,000 stickers, so they're incredibly cheap (I'm selling them at cost). You can buy as few as 10 or as many as 800 in one shot. So go get some! You can read more about it and/or place an order at savethescc.com.

Here's a shot of some of my recent handiwork — a couple postcards and the two stickers:

The discounted hotel rates went into effect today for Comic Con and we managed to claw our way through the online frenzy to get one. Now instead of staying at the Comfort Inn Gaslamp 6 or 7 blocks away, we're booked at the Hilton Bayfront which is right next door to the Convention Center. And the real beauty of it is that the discounted price was $70/night CHEAPER than the Comfort Inn we were going to be staying at. Also, it looks like a pretty sweet hotel.

The man gets all the credit. I forgot all about Comic Con hotels being available today, but he remembered and came home on his lunch hour so we could try to get one. Success :)

A: Me!

Q: Who's going to Comic-Con?

The 4-day passes are just about sold out, so I stopped my can I handle a 6-hour flight? wavering and took the plunge. The man and I bought our tickets tonight and booked a hotel (within walking distance of the convention center - yay). Now I just need to convince myself that flying is a fun thing, not a scary thing.

So who else is going?
