    Not a Nugent fan? Ted puts on a great show. I'm hoping he decides to play around here this summer though I haven't heard of anything yet.

    I heard the news yesterday about Metallica & Godsmack scheduling a date in Green Bay. If I can manage to get the morning after off work I may have to try for tickets to that one.

    Note: Eating chili cheese fries and a hot fudge sundae before drinking at a concert is a bad idea.

    So, what's the status? Who's all going besides JediRacer8? We have been planning to meet up on Saturday by the ticket booths, I know that Eric is planning to go as well but other than them I don't know of anyone else. So is anyone planning on going?

    We are planning on getting there early Saturday to get in at 9:30 when they let advance tickets in. The plan is to get special tickets for the Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes event so hopefully we won't have to stand in line to long.

    I'm definitely going and, right now, Eric and I are planning to go together on Saturday if he doesn't have to work.

    cool, yeah I just talked to Eric as well and he had mentioned that. We definitly need to be sure that we get into the Steve Sansweet thing. And I for one want to see Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith. Last year Kevin Smith's pannle was packet, I did find a seat but I also got there a little late.

    I'm hoping Sansweet and Smith/Mewes have autograph signings too but I'm not counting on it. I'll just be happy to get into their shows.

    I've never been to a convention. What's it like? What do you do there?

    It involves a lot of standing, waiting, and being choked by the body odor of nerds in costume.

    Wizard World has a lot of comic, toy, and other nerd-paraphenalia dealers, if you are into collecting. There are also game demos, collectible exhibits, appearances by actors/comic artists/writers, etc. Their website is http://www.wizarduniverse.com if you are interested in more information.

    And of course the sweet smell of nerds in the morning.

    yeah, I agree.

    And yes, that about sums up a convention. It's a lot of fun though it's like geek heaven ecspecially if your into collecting like JediRacer8 said there are a ton of dealers, and this year Steve Sansweet will be giving a talk about Episode III, a lot of other star wars actors will be there as well.
