Post by Johnny Neat » Wed May 05, 2004 11:22 am

Everybody,

Some of you are lucky to live out in Cali. But I'm excited to be returning & going to the Mecca of Cons. I just grabbed my flights and am just wondering what you all are expecting to do during that time. I'm staying out in Long Beach, but I'll be crusin around looking up old friends :shock: , visiting childhood hang outs in Glendale :D , contemplating if the Con was worth it :roll: , & hoping to meet some of you all who are meet able 8) .

Anyhow, let me know what's the dilly.

I plan on going. I'm still not sure if I'm gonna get comped in or if I'll have to pay the entry fee. I also still don't know where I'm staying! I like to fly off the seat of my pants I guess.

I'll definitely be there. My friend's brother-in-law is getting a bunch of extra tickets for her and a couple others of us on the condition that we grab a few exclusive giveaways and such for him to sell on eBay. We did it for him at Wizard World in March, they did it for him last year at San Diego. And seeing as how the con in San Diego is so huge and lasts for 5 days (including preview night), I can't imagine that I'm depriving myself of too much by waiting in a few lines.

Last year I worked with a guy I know in the independents section, helping him sell his comic (Pete the P.O.'d Postal Worker for those of you wondering). It was pretty sweet, especially considering that was my first time going.

Just to plug some more: Flight will premier at the San Diego Comic Con this year, so if you want a copy a.s.a.p., and/or want to meet the crew, be sure to make it. 8)

This is going to be like a big family reunion, reuniting a bunch of people that have never met. (At least some of them...)

I have no idea if I'll be there or not, but I really would like to go. I'm a solid maybe. :)

He's right... you never seen so many FREAKS and Babes under the same roof! And a TON of talent too. Knock on wood that it never happens, but if you want to crush a good chunk of talent in one fell swoop... taking out the con would pretty much do it. Hmm.. I shudder at the thought.

No matter where I stay... I'll BE there! I'll be the one paying $5 to take pictures of porn stars. (pfft.. i can't believe they charge for that)

I'll be there, running all around the whole time. I might spend some time at the Fintan Studios booth, and I'll certainly be tracking down everyone in the Flight crew that I can.
Fun for Brains and Eyeballs!

Cool

Cool then maybe I'll meet you there.
I mean cause flying off the seat of your pants is cool.
So be there or be square.

P.s. Don't you hate when they (Porn stars, don't get me started on the star part.) ask for doe just for a picture or a pose/hug pic :?: I mean s#!t no disrespect, but considering what you do for money. A picture and/or a pose/hug pic is nothing. I've never, nor would ever, pay a woman to take a picture alone or with me... ever. But I see what you mean. One of my partners' cousins ask a porn star (LOL) for a picture and she asked for doe. He was shocked & asked "why :?:" She's like "Because I'm a star baby" I had to laugh. I mean s#!t, I got a pic (with no problem sass, money payments, or otherwise) of one of my childhood crushes, actress Sarah Douglas "The evil chic Ursa from Superman II", and she's more of a star then any "Porn chic" thinks they are or will ever be.


KA Woody
Huge huh?! I hope so.
I hope to meet a lot of people and finally close the deal or make a new one so Galaxy Kid Productions can have an official home. Hope I meet you there.

Neil
You should definitely make it.
Plus you know I'm grabbing me a copy of flight.
S#!t :!: I'm grabbing 5 copies.

Kazu
I know you will be there. I'd love to meet you.
You've seemed very cool and interesting from your posts & interviews.
And the comic lover I am, I need you signature on my Flights.
Hope to meet you there as well as Jake P and Chad T, plus Derek Kirk Kim.. if possible.
I'll be seeing if the reunion of sorts comes off without a hitch.

Hope
I would really like to meet you and see where that gifted art sense comes from.
See ya there chica.

Chuckbb
After going to the Orlando Comic Con, before the slight drop off.
I've been excited to see & be at the Mecca of Cons.
I hope it blows me away. &
And coming home signed, sealed, and almost delivered wouldn't hurt the trip none.

Jason C-M
Catch you there then.


:arrow: So who else is going :!: :?:

Haha yah seriously, Mercury, it's rediculous that they charge. I was just joking about paying the porn stars though (ok maybe not entirely) because I saw Aria Giovanni buying a tshirt at wizard world... and some fanboy asked to take a photo and she almost went with it but stopped and said that photos are $5. Dude... she's not working, she's shopping. Give him the bloody photo! She's not a struggling student so it's... it's just wrong.

So..haha... if you don't see me at those booths, I'll probably be waiting in line at the Mattel booth to get a She-Ra action figure.

No doubt. They act silly. I wanna say "Dudette :!: You're a call girl on film, nothing more. A Dude can't a get a hug or pic without you whoring :?:"
I mean now is the only time they should be allowed to peddle themselves cause of this AIDs outbreak in their line of business.

But anyhow, I should be the dude with a Johnny Mercury Space Boy or a Mr. Hero Galaxy Kid Productions tee on searching for some Flight dudes to chit chat with and an official home finally for GK Productions.

See ya there mate.

I really hope I can make it. Really really! At first it was a definite yes, and it's still one of my goals to get there, but my funds are dwindling T_T Hmm... time for some side freelance work maybe? =/
