Mar 12th, 2013 Featured, On Pop culture, On Travel incoherentboy 6 min read

As of 10am Pacific Time, the second Comic Con International hotel lottery has closed, and choices for Comic Con 2013 hotels have gotten that much fewer. So allow me to tell you about the place I’m staying this year, one you may also want to consider. It’s the same place I stayed during last year’s San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) : the quaint, lovely Keating House Bed and Breakfast on Banker’s Hill.

SDCC Accommodation: There Is Still Hope

Mar 2nd, 2013 Featured, On Pop culture, On Travel incoherentboy 9 min read

So you’ve gone for the San Diego Comic Convention hotel lottery, and didn’t luck out at all. A hotel within walking distance of the convention centre is out of the question, and would probably cost you an Infinity Gem anyway, or maybe a pair of Nega Bands. To think the fight for SDCC badges was already bad enough. So what do you do for SDCC accommodation now?

It began with smoke. Lots of smoke. We started forward nervously, as the walkers snarled at us behind their enclosure. The FEMA guys kept yelling, saying that they had it all under control. Right before two of the walkers broke loose and started chomping on this cop.

SDCC: Epilogue – My top five moments

Jul 19th, 2012 Featured, On Pop culture, On Travel incoherentboy 13 min read

Almost five days after it ended, my head is still filled with strange, surreal thoughts about SDCC. Was I really there? Did I really see/do all those awesome things? And why do I still wake up at 2am thinking that it’s time to go and queue for a panel? But the San Diego Comic Convention has come and gone, and it’ll be a whole year before SDCC 2013 comes. In the meantime, I’ll have these memories to keep from crying myself to sleep at night.

It’s finally here, and it all begins today at Preview Night! But besides all the obvious reasons to be psyched about SDCC, one other reason I’m buzzed is that my name cards for this blog have just arrived.

Nerd Mecca: San Diego Comic Convention

Clearly, the San Diego Comic Convention isn’t the Lazarus Pit, let alone sacred ground. But as far as true believers are concerned, it might as well be. I’m flying to San Diego from San Fran in a few hours for my first pilgrimmage, and already I can feel the buzz and the energy of the place online.
