On the road to Fan Expo

This weekend is the Fan Expo Canada in Toronto. The one con that I actually get a chance to check out each year. Plans to possibly hit up PAX next spring but we’ll see what happens.

I’ve been hitting up this con almost every year for the past 7 years or so. Each year the plethora of events, panels, autograph sessions are more than enough to keep me scrambling and busy the entire weekend. Although over the years I find autographs have become a bit over priced so I tend to be a bit more selective with them. I used to end the weekend with a dozen or so at least. The last year or two I’ve come home with less than half that. Oh well. It’s all good. I still have a killer time each year.

My favorite part of cons are the panels. So many opportunities for people to learn about or how to actually do some of the things we’ve always wanted to. Like start a little nerd blog about all the wonderful things you are so passionate about for example. *cough*

Celebrity Q&A’s are wicked fun too. They are usually pretty laid back and often really funny. I try and hit as many as I can over the course of the weekend. Sometimes the unfortunate circumstance happens when two you want to check out are at the same time. Hate when that happens. They really should just gimme a quick call before finalizing the schedule. How awesome would that be?

So here I am in the car on my way to Toronto. I’m going stir crazy reading all the tweets and just needed to do something to keep occupied. I’ve already driven the others in the car crazy with my senseless and delusional ranting. So i decided to throw on the headphones, rock out to some Creepshow and make a quick post to pass a bit of time.

I look forward to this each and every year. The goal is to get out to a few more cons than just this one once a year. If you’ve never been to Fan Expo or any other con you’re really missing out. There’s usually something there for everyone. A good time to be had by all.

That’s all for now i suppose. It’s quite difficult to type this out on my Android. I will try to post a bit more and perhaps even get some videos to post as this four day long nerd party goes on.


Time to freak out with my geek out. Lets do this.

Thanks for reading.
