Comic Con: Once More With Feeling

Hard to believe this is the last day of San Diego Comic Con.  It has been a busy week, but so many new and exciting adventures.  Sunday was no different.  Although I got there early, I was unable to get into the Castle panel.  No Nathan Fillion for me this year.  Luckily I met Cynthia Schnautz on the elevator at my hotel and she told me she was there.  Cynthia sent me  pictures of Fillion and Katic reading from Heat Wave.  The first thing the moderator requested was that Fillion and Katic read the pages leading up to the sex scene between Rook and Heat (because of the possibility of children under 18 being present they didn’t didn’t read the scene itself).  They had also changed the name “Nikki” to “Kate.”

“Richard Castle” sent in a video from the Hamptons saying he was sorry he couldn’t make it.  In the course of the video he discovers a body and invites the general public to help him solve the case by following WriteRCastle on Twitter.

They also got to see the first few minutes of the premiere episode.  Apparently Castle hasn’t contacted anyone at the precinct since he left for the Hamptons. Nathen Fillion brought a bunch of items that he signed and gave away to people who asked questions during the panel.  He even gave away snippets of his hair!  I’m sorry I missed that.  (Thanks Cynthia for the info and the pictures!)

No Glee either, although I did go over and check out the Glee Karaoke booth.  I didn’t sing, but it was really fun to watch others try to match up their voices to the Glee cast.  I even managed to have a few words with Sue Sylvester.  Then I had a Twilight spotting when I saw Kiowa Gordon who played Embry Call, a teenage shapeshifter from La Push and is one of Jacob’s “wingmen.”  So, of course, I just had to grab a quick photo.

Finally made it into the Sons of Anarchy panel.  It was almost over, but it was fun seeing Ron Perlman.  Next up was the panel for It’s Always Sunny in Philidelphia.  Now I’ve never seen the show, but they showed a never before seen episode and it was hilarious.  Danny Devito was there and he makes me laugh by just walking on the stage.  I know I’ll be watching more of this show.



Cast of White Collar

I also got to be at a press panel with the White Collar cast.  Love that show. Premise is  “A white collar criminal agrees to help the FBI catch other white collar criminals using his expertise as an art and securities thief, counterfeiter and racketeer.”  Tiffani Theissen is on the show and it’s such fun to watch her play an adult role after all those years on Saved By The Bell (Andrew made me watch it).  I did ask Matt Boomer how it was to come from being a spy killed on Chuck to playing suave Neal Caffrey.  He said the spy was very focused on doing the right thing and Neal is more about doing his thing right.  Just different thrills.  Tim DeKay admitted that after the camera zooms in on his two beautiful costars, it has to back away when it shows him.

Comic Con closed, for me, like it always does, with a final showing of the Buffy musical episode, Once More with Feeling.  The audience is handed props to use during the show and subtitles are supplied for those of us who don’t yet know all the words.  There’s yelling at the screen when Spike says he wants nothing more to do with Buffy (Liar!) and when Dawn comes on (kill her).  Cheers for the bad guy and hoots when Spike and Buffy kiss at the end.  Then the doors close on the convention center for the last time for this Comic Con until next year and everything ends “Happily Ever After.”

Bottom Line: Now on a plane for Orlando and the RWA where ever more HEAs await…I’m psyched!

    I just read that someone got stabbed at ComicCon … with a pen. If anyone can demonstrate that “the pen is mightier than the sword,” it’s a bunch of comic book fans. Glad you had a good time, Barbara, and stayed out of any writing-implement scuffles! Thanks for letting us live vicariously. Have fun at RWA!

    Sounds like you had a good time, Barbara. I’m a both a Castle fan, and a White Collar fan from their first shows. Have fun at RWA. I’m looking forward to hearing all your reports. Bertrice Small

    Goods heavens–you could give the Energizer Bunny a run for his neverending power with all the extended excitement (and crowds) of Comic-Con to a cross-country jaunt to the excitement (and crowds) of RWA! Sounds like the only time you get to sleep is on the plane!

    Barb – You must be three people to be at the right place at the right time. Great interviews and photos.

    Regarding the “stabbing” mentioned above (hi Allison, now waving from Orlando at the next conference…) – that’s too funny about the pen being mightier than the sword. Thankfully it was an isolated incident. This was my first year at Comicon and even I could tell that was a bizarre and unexpected situation. Thank goodness the pen only scratched the person’s face and did not hit his eye.

    Other than that, the entire week was filled with people excited to see the Comicon sights.

    These days of austerity and also relative stress and anxiety about getting debt, many people balk against the idea of using a credit card to make acquisition of merchandise or even pay for any gift giving occasion, preferring, instead only to rely on the actual tried along with trusted procedure for making repayment – hard cash.

    I have seen a lot of useful points on your site about pc’s. However, I’ve got the viewpoint that netbooks are still not quite powerful adequately to be a good selection if you generally do projects that require plenty of power, including video croping and editing. But for net surfing, microsoft word processing, and the majority of other popular computer functions they are fine, provided you can’t mind the small screen size. Many thanks sharing your thinking.
