    Sigh, if you fly me in I'll volunteer!!

    I wish you guys were coming to the Toronto Con (biggest comic show in Canada).

    We used to do the Toronto show, but the promoter treated us so poorly that we have given it up. Shame, too, as it was one of the most enjoyable shows on our schedule. We had absolute nightmares the 2 times that we went. Booth didn't get through customs, hotel reservations wacko, freight costs astronomical. If they can get it together, we may consider adding it back in for '03.

    Yeah, I really don't care for the promoter myself. Actually, I find him to be one of the biggest jerks around, unless you're an actor on a sci fi show, or a sports celebrity, then he kisses your butt.
    I avoid him like the plague when I see him at the convention each year. Other than that, it is a good show generally, and I have enjoyed myself every time I've gone (with one exception involving the promoter that I won't bore you with).

    so it's HIS fault...i've met a couple of sci-fi actors that will ONLY talk to you if you're kissing their butts...remind me sometime and i'll tell you about an experience i was party to involving Marina Sirtis.

    of course, for every one of her, there's someone like Dwight Shultz, with whom i had quite a neat discussion about schroedinger's(sp?) cat...he was cool...

    A Mirina Sirtis story??? Do tell!

    i can't...just quoting her would get me booted for language...let's just say she wasn't very plesant.

    in her defense, though...i hear she's mellowed out quite a bit since then...when i met her it was still fairly early in the series (don't remember how many years back offhand, though).

    my favorite convention story is when Dr. Demento told me i was funny! it was after a comic panel i had moderated at our con...it was like god himself had smiled upon me...still one of my proudest moments.

    I remeber very fondly when Marina came to my local convention. She was an hour and a half late because she "couldn't find a taxi." We all founs this funny cause she was only 20 mins. from the airport and the hotel had free shuttles. Guess she was to good for that. I got to ask her a question. Of course I asked her about her recent wedding of which the National Enquirer had covered extensively. She was not amused with the question but I was an adorable little kid and what was she going to do about it. She was adamant the nothing had happened except the incident with the flower girls.

    I saw her at a convention in Boise just before "Generations" came out. I'm not sure if "mellow" was a term that came to mind.
    How could I put this....
    The straight laced, reserved Deanna Troi seemed to really stretch her acting abilities.

    Kate Mulgrew...now there was a classy lady!

    So are there no NW based conventions?
  12. grail

    grail Well-Known Member

    i heard that about Mulgrew, shame i've never met her...

    as far as NW cons, i couldn't begin to guess...i work with one called http://www.inconjunction.org every year, and it was through it (kinda) that i met all these people. (we're having a mini Lost in Space reunion next year). and apparantly i'm helping work GenCon when it comes to Indy next year.

    this is (so far) the list of cons i'm attending in '03

    WizardWorld Chicago/San Diego Comicon (i may have to pick one here)

    and probably more before the end of the year...
    i have no life...but i'm a good little toy whore...

    Yeah, actually Grail, I do think being one of the biggest jerks around is his fault. ;)

    Even if he's being a bootie kisser to the actors because they demand it, that doesn't mean he should get to poop on everyone else to make up for it. :rolleyes:

    ... interesting how "virgin" is a no-no, but somehow "whore" makes it past the PC police. :D

    sorry if it was found offensive, i thought i was clear since i was being self-effacing and hopefully funny...(i.e. i wasn't calling someone one, i was calling myself a TOY-whore, "one who is easily bought with toys"). i have a bad habit of calling myself a pimp for Zen too...i apologize, and promise to try not to do it again.

    Wow you mustv'e been pretty young. It is amazing she would use that kind of language to a kid!
  17. grail

    grail Well-Known Member

    i wasn't THAT young...

    i want to say it was '91 (which makes it later in the series than i realized) so i'd have just turned 13...i think typically you'd have been right, but i was hanging out with the big people, and backstage, so i think i got special dispensation...
  18. FellowWLover

    FellowWLover Well-Known Member

    Oh I am not offended! I am just interested in the PC police is all... no worries!
