Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Wondercon 2010 Wrapup

Posted on Monday, April 12 @ 16:09:02 Eastern by Blake_Morse

Day 2



I woke up shocked to find that I was not hung over and prepared for what was to be my most ultimate day of WonderCondum, for today was the day I had lined up some ridonkulously big name interviews.

First on my list was the Disney red carpet-style Q&A with some folks from the upcoming Prince of Persia and Sorcerer's Apprentice films. We got time with Jake Gyllenhaal, Nicolas Cage, and Richard Kelly (director of Donnie Darko), along with a cavalcade of other Hollywood big shots.

 

My one regret, though, was agreeing to let them move us from the prime spot we had in line to the very fucking end. It was like realizing that you'd been taken out of your regular classes and transferred into the remedial ones with the scissors made for little kids

In the future I doubt I will be as accommodating as I was this time, as the move meant that we got the short end of the interview stick. It was like the celebrities were a goat being dropped into a tank of piranhas and we were the toothy little fishes. But I fought the good fight and got GR the best coverage I could under the circumstances. Because that's how much I fucking love you guys!

Next up was my personal highlight from this year, my interview with the guys from Radical Axis Studios. They're the animation team behind such modern classics as Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Squidbillies, and FX's new series, Archer. This time it was just me, Bill, the Radical Axis guys, and a quiet room at the Cartoon Art Museum. It was everything I've ever wanted.

Not only were they all hilarious, but also very down to earth. I think they're all kind of taken back by the idea of having personal fans. We talked for quite some time about everything from Aqua Teen to Archer with no PR people to suddenly pull them away to talk to the local news (BTW Disney, way more people read this site than watch the channel 7 news).

Later on that day they were hosting a panel with an open mic Q&A session that we attended as well. They showed a great little film about how cartoons get made that you can watch here. I even scored some sweet Adult Swim sunglasses (they got a unicorn on them!).

By the end of the Radical Axis panel, everything was shutting down for the day, so we called it a wrap. Unfortunately, the event coordinator's made the tactful decision to hold WonderCon the same weekend as Easter. And as much as I love pop culture and comic books, I love my grandma even more, so I skipped Sunday's activities to spend time with the family. Remember: As much fun as this stuff is to do, family kicks way more ass.
