I’m taking part in Book Riot’s Read Harder challenge. You can see the list of tasks here. Every other week I’ll be posting a list of books that will fulfill one task, and then choosing one to read. This week’s task is to read a book that won either a National Book Award, the Man Booker Prize, or a Pulitzer Prize in the last decade.
The most important thing that MTV does at San Diego Comic Con is provide WiFi inside the convention center. But bringing Teen Wolf to the con is a pretty close second.
We kid. Of course we love Teen Wolf more than free WiFi.
At last year’s San Diego Comic Con, we sat in Ballroom 20 most of Thursday just to see the Teen Wolf panel. We slept on the cold, damp grass for hours the night before, and then sat in the chilly ballroom for hours on end, sitting through many many panels before we were graced with our fave cast’s presence. One of the downsides of camping out in a convention room for a panel that happens later in the day is that you have to endure other things first. But in 2014, that exact scenario ended up being a HUGE upside for me.
Because I got to see the pilot of Scorpion, and fell madly, MADLY, in love.
Yeah you are, baby.
Fox is letting loose Penguin lookalikes all over San Diego during Comic Con. They’ll be waddling through the area around the convention center Friday and Saturday from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM, handing out pairs of Oswald’s signature sunglasses.
Follow Gotham on Twitter, and read on for more of what they’ll be doing at SDCC.
We understand that even the most hardcore fanpeople have real lives that demand their attention. (Can someone do away with the whole ‘paying bills’ thing so we can quit our jobs and be full-time fans? Thanks.) Here’s a recap of this week’s posts so you can get caught up on all the keysmashing.
The San Diego Comic Con campus has expanded this year, meaning official panels are being held in buildings surrounding the convention center. 90% of the time the panels I want to see are in the bigger rooms: Hall H, Ballroom 20, sometimes Room 6A. This panel might be the first one that I’d be willing to wander further for.
The first Saturday of every month we’ll be sharing themed photos from the last month, giving you a little glimpse into the life of the Keysmash OT5. If you want to participate, check out the graphic below with the themes for next month, and post your pics with the tag #ksbpics.
Oh man. Sense8, huh?? What a show. If you haven’t watched it I highly suggest that you give it a shot. It took me two weeks to get past one scene in an episode pretty early on in the season (it’s a grab bag full of fun triggers) but once I did (and patted myself on the back while breathing heavily and sweating) I mainlined the rest of it in one night. IT IS SO GOOD.
Unfortunately the panel is at 4:45 on Friday, which conflicts with Teen Wolf. Logically I know that I should go to Sense8 because it’s the first panel the show will be doing at SDCC and that’s kind of historic? I’m going to regret not being able to say I was there, but Teen Wolf is home.
A new quarter, a new charity project! Our first, the Random Fandom Recipe Book, turned out great, and raised money for Random Acts. The second project in our GIVESMASH series will be a blogathon to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
