Here it is August 2012! And it’s almost Fan Expo time, my favorite time of year!
The Mind Reels, just shy of it’s 1 year birthday, coming up in October (can you believe it?!) has been invited to attend this year’s Fan Expo and cover it as Media. Sue and I are delighted.
I’ve gone to this event every year since I moved to Toronto, so in other words, this will be my 4th. But I love it, it’s amazing geekry, and I’ve seen improvements each year, as the people at Hobbystar tweak listen to what those attending say, and strive to make it a better experience each and every time.
If it’s possible, the event seems to be getting bigger each year as well, more guests, more big names, more events, and more fun.
I currently can’t tell you who I’m most excited to meet and chat with… .Horror Meister John Carpenter, director of The Thing, Big Trouble In Little China, Halloween, and Escape From New York… Rachel Nichols from Continuum (anyone who’s read my blog knows there’s a bit of a crush thing happening there)… the amazing Gillilan Anderson… The Boondock Saints – Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flannery… Amanda Tapping from Stargate SG-1 and Sanctuary… our friends the cast of Lost Girl… the man, the legend – STAN LEE!!! … the amazing cast and crew of Dead Before Dawn 3D (did you know Sue and I have a cameo in this?) starring Devon Bostick, Christopher Lloyd, Tim Doiron and April Mullen… the only Captain Jack who matters Torchwood’s John Barrowman, the voice of Fry from Futurama, Billy West and that has barely scratched the surface!!!
It’s going to be an amazing ride, and our twitter feed and Facebook pages will be seeing constant photo and status updates, as well as daily articles. And who knows? We may have an interview or two to share with you as well.
If you’re in T.O. or even close to it and consider yourself a geek, this is the place to be next weekend, and you can still get tickets! Just click the Fan Expo link on the right side of our page, and it will take you right to the site!
If you are going, make sure you tweet at us, and track us down and say hi!
We’re looking forward to a fantastic weekend.
