    I was googling Wondercon and I discovered that Ming is clearly visible in the "crowd shot" from last year! Go to http://www.comic-con.org/wc/ and look at the photo. I saw Ming right away! I didn't see anyone else but I haven't looked too hard, so you never know.

    Wow, Anne! You're right. He's on the bottom right side of the frame, wearing his Jedi Gear.
    It's like our own version of "Where's Waldo?" [face_mischief]

    LOL! Yeah, I forgot to mention that (I noticed it when I checked out the web site a few weeks ago).

    I think it's very fitting that he made it into the crowd shot :)

    FYI - I thought this would be pertinent info on Moscone West, since probably none of us has ever used this Particular part of Moscone for any other event.

    So the following has some pics of the building:
    http://www.moscone.com/site/do/multimedia/list?type=0&pid=3

    And btw - they apparently have WI-FI access. So maybe someone could bring their laptop, and use it as a way to have guests directly sign up or check out the new web-site? [face_thinking]

    http://www.moscone.com/mtgplanners/facsvcs/wifi.shtml

    Or we might need this as well:
    http://www.moscone.com/mtgplanners/faq/bizcenter.html

    Still not sure about lockers though...

    This is probably a lame question, but I've been incommunicado on the SF boards for a bit...is there a database or some such for volunteers to sign up for the Fan Force table? Do you need volunteers? Can I help at all?

    "The Moscone Center/Priority Point login page displays two price plans for wireless access: A 1 day plan (24 hours -$15.95) and a 1 hour plan (60 minutes- $5.95). Note: 1 hour plan is continuous for 60 minutes after initial login."

    Just bumped into Mary Franklin at work (she just saw "King Kong") and she said Steve Sansweet's SW Presentation will be sometime between 5 - 7 pm on Saturday. Also, author Timothy Zahn was going to be at a book signing in Half Moon Bay on Friday night at 7 pm, but now it looks like he'll be at WonderCon instead! I mentioned if it would be possible for him to sign at our table and she said she'll try to see if that's doable. Details are still being worked out, and times TBA. She also said that she wasn't sure of which SW celebs (i.e. Matthew Wood (voice of General Grievous) would be there. She assumed Official Pix (who's an exhibitor, and the only licensed company authorized to sell authentic SW photos and autographs) told him since he is a local, but we'll have to wait and see. I actually mentioned it to Matt when he visited me at work a while back.

    Kay Dee, I know you're probably tired of me asking this, but could you bring the protest signs to WonderCon? I think it would be good to promote the club if members who weren't at the table could walk around the con for a while, holding the signs, and handing out flyers for SFFF to anyone who approaches them. Someonw with a camera could follow them around to take pics with celebs and/or "interesting" con-goers! The signs would also add a nice nice touch to the RL photo shoot.

    Hey Matt, I was thinking at the very least Yoda + Sign = [face_laugh]

    Yeah, the signs are looking worn but I can bring them. I know people were flipping out over them at comic-con last year. Maybe if they don't seem like old hat by now we can hope for half the response.

    I'll add a rebel symbol to the corner of the Impeach Sign (a detail I originally intended and never got around to).

    If you guys walk around with them for a photo op can I please be included since I worked pretty hard on the signs?

    Just an update re: cat club's 1984 night.[face_dancing]

    I looked up the date and 1984 is on!

    I did find out that there is a $3.00 cover charge B4 10:00PM.

    After 10:00PM it's $6.00.

    Most of you that know me have my cell but if you don't just send me a PM. Or if you have any questions.

    This is also a 21 and up club-FYI

    Good to know, Tina.

    And the great Frank Miller has been added as a guest of Wondercon for all three days. And if you don't know who Frank Miller is -- why are you going to a comic book convention? Seriously...the man who revitalized Batman with The Dark Knight mini series, made Daredevil cool, created Sin City, 3oo, and Batman Year One.

    also according to the Wondercon site: "Friday night at 7:30pm, is the World Premiere of Done the Impossible, The Fans' Tale of Firefly and Serenity-A Documentary. It's the amazing story of how a devoted group of fans-the Browncoats-wouldn't let Joss Whedon's sci-fi TV show, Firefly, die. Out of the ashes came Serenity, the major motion picture, from Universal, released in September 2005 to critical acclaim. Interviews with writer/director Joss Whedon, cast members, crew, and, most importantly, the fans themselves, tell this vivid story." Shiny :D

    LFL will of course have their standard presentation with Steve Sansweet, the fan films, etc.

    But FRANK MILLER! Okay, now I'm stoked!

    I heard recently a movie is in the works for 300.
    Also, I know there are people around here who are fans of The Dark Crystal...well, a sequel is being made to it, with REAL PUPPETS, cgi backgrounds - but Genndy Tartakovsky is directing it! Sounds good to me. If only they don't $%^& it up now.

    The details of the Dark Crystal sequel can be found here.

    And Frank Miller's 300 can be found here.

    And don't forget Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez are already working on more tales from Sin City.

    Just as long as Mike Quinn works on it! :) Not too sure about the story line though.

    I have reservations about a sequel, although if it's done right, I guess it could be good. I still think it's a great film as it is.

    On another note, there will be a "Superman Returns" presentation at WonderCon, as well as an M:I:III presentation with Director J.J. Abrams. Not sure if he'll be signing any "Lost" DVD's though. ;) As for the Superman one, it would be cool if the new Superman, Brandon Routh made a surprise appearance, like Christian Bale did for "Batman Begins" last year.

    you mean Dark Crystal, right? So long as Henson co is involved and Brian Froud, I have hope.

    But Sin City would be interesting since there are several volumes that have not been covered yet with all new characters.

    They are. I think it could be good for that reason, and also because it's supposed to take place way after the first one. If there's not as close a connection to the original story, even if it's not as good, it won't feel like it destroys the feeling of the original. I think it's a smart move.
