Be Back Soon

Posted: April 16, 2010 in Blogging, Geek Culture

Well, I’m off to C2E2. I am sure I’ll be doing a post or two about it when I get back. Please try not to burn the place down while I’m gone.


  1. littlekingryan* says:

    Enjoy, you lucky bastard. I wish I could go with.

  2. IronMuskrat says:

    Have fun Jose!

    And if you see any of your favorite Marvel writers there remember to spread the love!

    • Smallmaniac says:

      Actually, it’s probably not a good idea. We don’t know yet if they are contagious. Wouldn’t want Jose to get an STD, or worse, a horrible sense of quality.

    • SMARTASS8 says:

      Gotta love the Stooges! We have a show in Chicago called Stooge-A-Palooza that features 2 hours of Stooge shorts every saturday where a local celebrity named Rich Koz(he also doubles as a horror movie host named Svengoolie) adds trivia and behind-the-scenes anecdotes between the shorts. I try to catch it or record it whenever I can.

  3. Smallmaniac says:

    Ok, now that they’re gone, let’s throw a party!!!!!!

    Woot!! Woot!!!

    • Bobcat says:

      Yeah CRAZY lol so what’s up CCW Nation??

      • TheMSpot says:

        I say we burn her down for the insurance money, or rip on Bendis because he’s going to do a Icon book of his own that isn’t Powers. Something called Scarlet probably to makeup for how he treats female characters in his mainstream work. Heres the thing why can’t he do this in one of his mainstream titles. According to Marvel “this book won’t just break the fourth wall, it will destroy it,” what ever the fuck that meams. On my blog I swore of writers behaving badly so hopefully this will redeem him for me or just another nail in the coffin that proves he’s lost touch with what got him where he is today. (damn it did I blackout with rage or was I ranting again)

        I got the Booze!

        Party over here party over there

      • Venom829 says:

        I’m following C2E2 on the whole Newsaram live thing. Right now, it’s the DC Nation panel. If they mention a vulgar question was asked, I’m gonna guess Jose asked it 😉

  4. Venom829 says:

    How long is C2E2?

  5. SMARTASS8 says:

    Am I the only Chicagoland local not going to C2E2? I guess I’m the rare comic fan who’s never been to a convention. It just never appealed to me since I don’t like huge crowds and I always hear about the BO & lack of hygiene of many of the fans. You can also hear all of the announcements & panel discussions at home on your computer and pretty much get whatever comics related merchandise you are missing off of Ebay. I almost tried this one, but I just never got around to buying tickets.

    • littlekingryan* says:

      I’ve never been to a big convention, either. Mostly it’s just a travel and money thing for me. I live out in the middle of nowhere, so it’s quite a production for me to go to a big one like C2E2. Hotel rooms, reservations, all that. I do plan on attending one eventually, though, since I hear it’s a great way to network and get your work seen and critiqued if you’re an aspiring professional. I’m envious of you guys up there in Chi-town. 😦

      • Pobra says:

        I’ve never been to a con either. I also can not stand large crowds and I hate driving to the city. I’ll occasionally step out of my comfort zone to see a concert. I don’t mind it once I’m in my seat, but after the show when everyone is swarming out of the building, I get all claustrophobic and start to panic. To me a con just sounds like that, but for the entire time. I don’t even like going to the fucking mall. If I go to a con I might end up killing someone. 😛

        • SMARTASS8 says:

          I’m with you Pobra. I’ll go to a concert(I used to practically see at least one a month in my teens and 20’s;not so much anymore), but leaving the venue was hell. I also hate the mall and if I find that I have to go to one, I almost prefer to go myself just so I can run in and run right back out. I did get claustrophobic at times(especially if I’m watching someone in a small enclosed space on a movie screen) but for me, it’s more that large crowds of people act stupid & just get on my nerves. I don’t like being shoved and stepped on by a bunch of strangers.

          • littlekingryan* says:

            Pobra, Smartass, you both sound like my kind of guys. I’m a bit of a crowdhater as well. I want to go to a convention as a creator, not a fan. I think I could enjoy myself much more that way.

      • Deemar says:

        Conventions are great, just for the costumes alone.

        I usually go to Dragon Con in Atlanta

  6. Deemar says:

    Have fun J

  7. littlekingryan* says:

    For anyone who might have been on the DevArt chat with us the other night, here’s the sketch I did for Jose:

  8. littlekingryan* says:

    Thanks, guys. We should do another chat session soon. Whenever everyone is up for it….

  9. cballsack says:

    Cool! No moderation. Who’s posting naked pics of Kristin Kreuk?

    • SMARTASS8 says:

      I’m more of a “Chloe” or “Lois” man myself.

      • phil says:

        Ditto, I prefer curves to angles, myself… and although KK is pretty, I also like a lass not to have unfortunate initials, especially if her middle name is Karen 🙂

        • littlekingryan* says:

          I’m not really into the KK thing, either. I’ve always dug Chloe above all others. Although she does have that big gums/little teeth thing going on…

  10. Venom829 says:

    I hope we’ll still have our weekend open thread.

  11. phil says:

    What are the hrs. of the chatroom? I’ve been to it twice and noticed no activity. I don’t wanna be the ummmm hello guy. is anyone there? where’s the freakin’ light switch anyway? etc. etc.

    • littlekingryan* says:

      It’s whenever we get a couple people together who want to chat, I suppose. We could leave it to J to set a specific time if he would be interested. I actually have it open in another window now and Iron Muskrat just showed up.

      • littlekingryan* says:

        oh and the address is here in case you cant find it: give it a go if’n ye want

        • phil says:

          I stopped by and although you guys could tell I was on, I could not lell if y’all could “hear” me. I,d type out the question and unless there’s significant lag time it would appear that I was not getting through. Am I missing a send function once I’m done typing or something?
          Anyway yours truly’s eyes are becoming magnets so its time for me to turn in. Maybe I’ll try again tomorrow.
          Later gators.

          • littlekingryan* says:

            man all you got to do is type your message and hit enter…i’m not sure what was going on with you
