Polaris 24

i went to the Polaris sci-fi/fantasy convention last night and met some great peeps!! these are postings i made on my facebook page so they are a bit disjointed but i wanted to add them here too!

first... I found out and already bought a ticket for Whedon Fest Toronto !!! first whedon fest here!! i met Evelina one of the co-owners running it, today at Polaris 24 and we had such a great chat!! i'm sooo glad she's doing this!! its gonna be awesome! and i'm in the midst of Dollhouse right now so its super great timing!! AND the fest is OCT 1-3 and guess when dollhouse season 2 is coming out on dvd!?! OCT 12!!

i also enjoyed the pamphlets I got from Timothy Carter today about his books!!! totally fun and hilarious!!! i'm sure the books are too! gonna have to check them out! awesome covers!!!

oh! also wanted to mention i had a great chat with Erik Buchanan at Polaris too!! we've been facebook friends for a while but finally had a chance to meet! and we've both done stage combat at Rapier Wit so had a ton of friends in common!! he's got 2 books out that i'm looking forward to reading in the near future!!

as well i had a blast at the Buffy panel too!! ... i gotta admit most of us Buffy fans are not fans of Twilight!! ;) why would you go for Bella when you can get Buffy!?!? :) ... BUT i must admit i am damn tired of human chick-male vamp combos (the ultimate 'older guy' .. ugh!), and mentioned that today, and Alyxandra Harvey, one of the author panellists, let us know her series, The Drake Chronicles finally has the reverse situation!!! YAYYY!!! cant wait to check them out!

and speaking of Buffy vs. Twilight... this is a hilarious yet accurate graph of the situation!!! hahhahah!! :

and on hilarious graphs topic... this is a hilarious explanation of why Firefly didnt make it!! :( and i got it from this site which claims another reason was that the opening credits werent good enough and they made a 'better' version!! haha! check it out here.
