Tweet Follow me Comic Con day two starts with the typical family taking photos outside, and dressed in superhero attire. That’s what happened when I decided to walk from my hotel room to the San Diego Convention Center. What’s interesting about Comic Con is the number of fans who really know about the properties they follow. One example is a man who stopped me and seemed to know everything about the Showtime series Dexter . This video contains just a few seconds of a much longer video, which could...

Tweet Follow me Comic Con 2013 is full of surprises, like the way I met Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants. I left the NERD HQ Party at Petco Park, and was just walking past The Omni Hotel, and toward The Hard Rock Cafe, en route to Nobu for a bit. On the way, I passed a group of three people, one of which a man who was looking up, shielding his face, and the other two, a man with glasses and a woman, talking. I asked the one guy who was shielding his face if he was OK, and he said yes, so the other...

Tweet Follow me In this blogger’s annual talk with David Glanzer, the Director Of Public Relations for Comic Con International, it was revealed that Comic Con wants to come back to San Francisco, but is still waiting for a response from the City and County of SF. That was one of a number of topics David Glanzer and I talked about, but it was the major one. Two years ago, Wonder Con was forced out of Moscone Center and out of San Francisco, due to planned expansion of the North Hall. As San Francisco lacked...

Tweet Follow me Haven, the critically acclaimed series based on Stephen King’s book “The Colorado Kid,” invades Comic Con 2013 with a number of events.

Tweet Follow me SteamPunk Scooter At Comic Con 2013. Comic Con 2013 is an incredible presentation of the talents of just ordinary people. Take this SteamPunk Scooter. I discovered it after the device almost ran over me while at the Comic Con Preview tonight. The woman was riding it, and said her husband, who was walking in front of me, made it. As it happens, a search revealed that it’s not the only SteamPunk Scooter of its kind around. There are a handful that have been made since 2008, when SteamPunk...

Tweet Follow me There’s nothing at all pretentious about Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim. It’s what you get when you mix Iron Man and Godzilla, and throw in homage after homage to the great giant monster movies of the past. Pacific Rim is the much-anticipated science fiction movie that had audiences at Comic Con and Wonder Con cheering during every second of action sneak peaks, brought all of that promise home when it was officially released Thursday. The premise of Pacific Rim is simple:...

Tweet Follow me Is Amanda Bynes Just Trolling Us? Nikky Raney of Zennie62Media thinks she is. “She’s a very good actress,” Ms. Raney says. But with such comments about “ugly Asians,” and other racist and homophobic Twitter tweets, one has to wonder if it’s not trolling, and that something really is wrong with her head. This blogger thinks the latter: that a combination of Hollywood work pressures, fame, and lousy friends have mixed to make a terrible brew, where Amanda Bynes...

Tweet Follow me Is Miley Cyrus’ engagement to be married to Liam Hemsworth back on? Nikky Raney, Zennie62Media Executive Editor, says it is! But one thing’s for sure: Miley Cyrus is certainly in the celebrity news a lot.

Tweet Follow me Meta World Peace, or Ron Artest, was placed in the NBA’s Amnesty program, and much to the dislike of Kobe Bryant. On the day the Lakers added traveling center Chris Kamen, and to replace Dwight Howard, Meta World Peace’s high dollar contract was causing some pain. This move should solve it, in that it should cause Meta World Peace to agree to a cheaper contract. The danger is Meta World Peace could go to another team. Stay tuned. ...

Tweet Follow me Rapper Mos Def volunteered to go through the same kind of force-feeding of food that 45 of 120 prisoners are experiencing at Guantanamo Bay Prison, or Gitmo. After being “OK at first,” Mos Def then said that it felt like his brain was “on fire.” The New Yorker reports that this was a publicity stunt for Mos Def, but the last thing I thought about when I saw the video was buying one of his tunes. Gitmo should be closed. An act of Congress can do this, but they must be forced...

Tweet Follow me Anna Benson is the very hot star of the TV show Baseball Wives, who’s now proving that orange is the new black. Anna Benson was arrested on Monday night in Smyrna, Georgia and after breaking into the home of her husband, former New York Mets Pitcher Kris Benson, pulling a metal baton, and then a gun, and demanding $30,000, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
