SDCC2013: It’s August 4, 2012 and you already have me in a line.

I feel like I’m waiting for a Twilight panel.  Seriously. Now that we’ve finished up in line and the confirmation emails are trickling in, I can say that this was stressful.  I had the world clock up and was not able to get in for a good 2 minutes, which gave me a poor spot […]

South Park – Year of the Fan Experience: Chan’s Review

South Park seems to be one of those shows that people either love or hate. Admittedly, there are some extremely crass moments in the show, but over the years it has really matured into some upscale crass. Famed episodes like “Make Love, Not Warcraft” and “Trapped in the Closet” have really brought it out into […]

Syfy’s Café Diem: Chan’s Review

Adjacent to the Hard Rock Hotel is a cute little restaurant normally entitled Maryjane’s Coffee Shop.  But, for one week this year of ComicCon, it was transformed into Café Diem, the signature coffee shop from Syfy’s original series Eureka.  The chairs, napkins, décor, menus, and more are completely changed out for Café Diem and Syfy-themed […]

Marked Men III Party: Chan’s Review

So picture this:  A party with pirates on pirate ships used in a little movie called Pirates of the Caribbean.  Booze, good spirits, and YAR!ring all around.  This sounds like the makings of a pretty cool venue with some pretty cool attendees, which is why my ComicCon group purchased tickets about a month before the […]

CNET Base Station featuring GameSpot: Chan’s Review

Free food?  Free internet?  Free stuff?  Too good to be true?  Well, it wasn’t, as CNET‘s Base Station featuring GameSpot took over Lou & Mickey’s on Fifth in the Gaslamp Quarter across from the San Diego Convention Center.  While you did need a ComicCon badge to enter, there was plenty of great stuff awaiting us!  […]

Nintendo Gaming Lounge: Chan’s Review

As I posted before Comic-Con, the Nintendo Gaming Lounge inside the Marriott Marquis & Marina was in full swing during the convention.  This was one of the places I frequented during the convention, and for good reason!  There were so many games to try, bean bags set up to lounge, and, of course, free goodies! […]

Wednesday Badge Pick-Up: Chan’s Review

The only other convention I really have to compare ComicCon to is BlizzCon, and of course ComicCon is on a completely different scale size-wise.  There are some key similarities, though: lines for everything, people who sit and wait through panels to get good seats for the awesome stuff, and day before badge pick-up.  With that […]

SDCC 2011 Friday/Saturday/Sunday Quick Recap

Friday we woke up a little earlier to get down to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge and picked up some Legend of Zelda shirts.  We then walked across the street to check out the South Park: Year of the Fan experience and had a wonderful time over there!  Took some great pictures, made an avatar of […]
