It is 4:00am Sunday morning and I have just returned from Indianapolis having undertaken two days of C2. I had written a very long post but decided instead to do this very condensed version. I'll be on all day Sunday to answer questions in further detail should anybody have any. Summed up C2 experience: #1 - The lines, the lines, oh my goodness the lines. There were points where there were three lines running through the place right next to each other for completely different things. One of the first lessons you learned there was to ALWAYS ask what a line was before investing time waiting in it only to find out that you're now back in line for the R2-D2 exhibit and not to see Rick McCallum. #2 - TONS to see. However, to see most of the actors, shows, etc. you had to wait in said lines (See #1) #3 - Most costumes were pretty good. Lots of stormtrooper-esque costumes (the 501st) and many Jedi. Made for some great pics. Best one there was a Rebel Hoth soldier (not 100% sure if he was trying to be Luke Skywalker or not) carrying around a huge wampa arm! Classic! #4 - "I DON'T KNOW"/LIES!! This was the most common phrase I heard there. None of the convention staff knew anything. And nobody was willing to find out any information. You could ask a person a question and get an answer and ask somebody else the same question and get completely conflicting responses. And if they didn't know, they'd lie and give a false answer. Example: waiting in line for Kenny Baker's autograph. They had shut down the line to purchase autograph coupons which you needed to get an autograph saying the fire marshall had problems with the number of people in the convention center. So they also capped actors' lines to "disencourage" people from getting certain autographs, saying, and I quote "We want people to go home." Folks, this was at around 1:30 in the afternoon on Saturday. Thankfully I was already in the area when they shut it down so I did not have to wait in more lines (see above). Anyway, some dude said Kenny's line was "capped" after some guy in a blue shirt about 5 people in front of me (guy turns out to be a dealer having Kenny sign about 20 things; pissed a lot of people off). Anyway, the line made it up to him, up to me, and a ton more people after me. By the time I had waited in another line for Warrick Davis' autograph, Kenny's line was STILL going! Pure bull is what these guys were giving. #5 - THE FANS. (See #1). What made those lines tolerable were the working stiffs who were there to enjoy the event. Let me put it this way: anybody getting paid for working at the convention (aside from the actors and select associates) was plain and simply rude and mean. Anybody there to have a good time was the nicest people in the world. I met a couple from New York, some dudes from Greece, a guy from California, etc. I was there with a buddy of mine and I think I talked more with other people than him (same goes for him). It was so pleasant waiting in lines since most of the time they just flowed so well since you were able to pass the time chit-chatting. Well, so much for a condensed post. I would go through it all in a second. Regardless of where C3 is going to be I'll be there. I now have a MUCH better understanding of how these conventions work and how to budget time wisely. On a completely different note, I also saw a minor league baseball game, got so loaded Friday night/Saturday morning that I lost my wallet at a hot dog stand (long story, won't go into it, but police were involved), ate at some good restaurants, toured the Conseco Fieldhouse (home of the Indiana Pacers), and met some ladies at a club called Have a Nice Day Cafe (another story , yes, it is related to the Have a Nice Day Cafe here). Sorry for the long post. Bujo P.S. I did not attend the third meeting since I was at a show so I can't say much. I did see Jedihexer walk up to Bib Fortuna and do an impression of him only to get an odd look back from the actor. Priceless.
