    I'm thinking they moved this date up, I could swear it was set to be on the 18th. Anyway the website now sez it's Sept 4th.

    Meet Mark Waid

    Anywho I contacted the guy about a table again, no response. I'll call the number in a day or two if nothing happens.

    With any luck we can get this banner before then but if not no worries we can go without if need be.

    It's the other stuff we need for the pics and all that we should worry about.

    Guests:
    Mark Waid (for you non-comics people this is HUGE, also he wrote a Deadpool mini-series...so you know he's cool. Heh)

    Ron Lim

    Dan Brereton


    time is shorter then we thought so I guess the best place to start is with a head count. Who can go and help man the table?

    *runs off to go beg for movie promos

    We should also talk about what to do after the convention. I'm thinking dinner somewhere....you guys can help me stalk Mark Waid and make him an honorary (sp?) Rogue.

    I think I can be there. The 4th actually works much better than the 18th for me. I do have rehearsal at 6 pm, so I may bail out early from dinner.

    Ok I've went out and begged for movie passes and promo's from the PR peeps. also if I can get the stuff from KDVS I'm going to have some stuff for them on the table as well (program guides, stickers, etc...trying to get thier banner as well since we might not have ours ready by then.)

    I'll let you guys know if I get anything coming our way.

    EDIT:
    Stuff is on the way. At least a few things (so far)

    We are going to have a "enter to win" contest at our table. All goes well this will draw alot of people to our area.
    *enter to win: (so far) Poster and Flip books from "Corpse Bride". T-shirts and Books from "A sound of thunder"

    We'll also have some other posters to give out at our table as well.

    We've got our table!!

    I spoke to the convention dude and we've got a table in the lobby with the artist guests. (puts me right in stalking range of Mark Waid...excellent)

    so we are set to go with the table people.

    So you'll just be wearing bells and a camera? Well our table's going to be popular. =P~

    I just called the guy and said:

    "Yo man this is Deadpool fo shizzle."
    "Oh Deadpool, man I've heard of you."
    "Well duh, I'm Deadpool."
    "Fo sho?"
    "Fo real."
    "Yo gimmie a table at the convention for my peeps."
    "anything for you Mr Deadpool."
    "That's right and Put us right near Mark Waid too fool!"
    "yes sir."

    At least that's how I remember it, I just wish I hadn't drank all that NyQuil at lunch.

    hmmmmmm that is a good question. I really don't know. I assumed we would. I'll play it by ear on that one.

    It's not a huge cover just a few bucks with the printed coupon, I'm cool with paying still myself. they are giving us the table space for free.

    I'm a fan of Arnie as an action star, but not being head cheese of [arnold voice] Kallifornea[/accent]. flyers great Bith as always.

    I'll give Arnold a call and invite him to drop by the convention, he owes from that thing back in the day...I can't really talk about it.

    Arnold says he's busy filming Twins II: Back to the Lab again yo! (this time it's personal) to go to the Sac-con. But I did request some signed photos for us (heh heh yes really)

    anywho...I made first contact with the people of Wonder-con, and I'm lining us up a table for that as well. (just need to fill out the request and get it in asap)

    Hey there. I am still trying to light a fire under the guy's arse to get the banner done in time.

    I will bring the coins, and other stuff as well. I am trying to make up some stickers to give out as well.

    Still working on things, but something has gone down at work atm and I'm not able to get online as much.

    I've got Lego Star Wars.

    Plus I'll bring my portable DVD player as well.

    Since the PR peeps are sending me stuff they might send us some trailers as well, not sure, but it does help draw people to the table as well.
