  • The Blair River Project

    I didn’t think I’d have another Serenity-related post before the movie actually arrives, particularly since Mr Whedon is officially not going to grace Dragon*Con 2005 with his presence. However, Universal’s “underground” marketing campaign is getting very interesting. So far, three grainy, black & white video clips have virally surfaced, each one approximately a week apart.…

  • Zip Is So Very Evil

    Zip Is Dr Evil Originally uploaded by grabbingsand. During last night’s trivia, our conversation somehow drifted over to the topic of a certain fictional archvillian. Naturally, the mighty Zip reminded all present that he had actually assumed the likeness of said villain just a few years back. Haven’t you seen the photo? he asked. Many…

  • Whither Whedon?

    I’ll make this brief. According to the Dragon*Con 2005 Guest List, Joss Whedon will be attending this year’s convention in support of his new film, Serenity. According to Joss Whedon’s own website a website blessed by the regular posting presence of Joss Whedon himself, he will not be attending Dragon*Con 2005. He claims that he…

  • Un-’Con-ventional

    Originally uploaded by grabbingsand. Posted by grabbingsand from Oddly enough, this year’s Dragon*Con wasn’t nearly the photofest of years past. I could blame the short life of shoddy AAs, but I just didn’t see as much to capture this year. And I was busy. It’s not easy to corral ‘Con-goers, even with an Info Services…

  • con-spicuousness

    click the badge. take a look. there would’ve been far more, but with so many people asking so many questions about so many things… there was so little free time. if you see yourself, let me know. if you don’t see yourself, perhaps you’ll have better luck over here. update: kathy (aka tittergrrl) managed to…

  • con-fabulations, part one

    stories from the weekend past. Monday Morning I’m waiting on the 14th floor for the next elevator. In the hall is a small boy and his dad. One looks like the other, right down to the glasses. The dad is a guest by the ribbon on his badge, but his name fails to trigger memories…

  • con-vening

    it has begun. dragoncon. i’m back again. the first day has come and gone, leaving my feet hurting and my eyes blurring. i am sitting here and i have every intention to write about the furious comic book legends, the disgruntled stars of television-gone-by, the strange popularity of an australian show about survivalist teenagers, the…

  • con-clusions

    so, what did we learn this weekend? – try as you might, avoid all you want, delay all you can, but you will spend money in the dealer’s room. too much, actually. on what? for me it was japanese dvds and neal adams comics, mostly – there really should be a licensing board to decide…

  • con-nections

    this is my third one. the third dragoncon i’ve attended, the third i’ve worked. of all of them, i have to say that i have seen many more famous folk this time around. this is the advantage of the information services booth, as it is much like the tourism board for this weekend-long reality trip.…
