Man, time is flying by. I still have tons of stuff to get done, like my Space Ghost stuff. I still need to write up a couple of blog posts to go up automatically. Just in case I can’t write up anything while I’m there. Yep, lot of stuff to get done. I’m excited that it’s almost here though.
Things are being switched around in the hotels. Since the Marriott is undergoing construction the dealers room has been moved to the Hilton. That sucks for me because I’m staying in the Hyatt. That’s a long walk. It’s made even longer since they’re closing the street between the Hyatt and Marriott to foot traffic at “peak hours”. So I won’t be hitting the dealers room nearly as much this year. That could be a good thing, maybe I won’t spend as much money.
Fewer trips to the dealer’s room should free up some time for me to get more pictures. I need to get a few shots of cosplayers for Anime Fans Online. I also need to see if there are any good anime events scheduled. I know there’s an AMV contest, but I’m not sure how I’d write up a post about that. I just hope they set up a site with the winners I can link to.
Looks like there are some great guest this year too. Here a few people that are supposed to be there.
A few of the scheduled guests.
Just a few of the guests I’m looking forward to seeing.
Jamie Bamber & Richard Hatch Wooo! Both Apollos!
James & Oliver Phelps Can’t wait to hear what the twins think of Deathly Hallows.
Matthew Lewis Ditto for Neville.
Gil Gerard & Erin Gray
Jason Hawes & Grant Wilson
You can never tell when someone will have to cancel, like these folks did.
Mary Jo Putney
Too bad Starbuck won’t be there. That means both Apollos will be there, and both Starbucks won’t.
With all the talk about [tag]Battlestar Galactica[/tag] [tag]ending[/tag], I’ve been thinking about how it might wrap up. It’s one of the best [tag]science fiction[/tag] shows on [tag]TV[/tag]. I’m hoping that the [tag]ending[/tag] will live up to what we’ve seen so far. It’s a tricky business making [tag]Galatica’s ending[/tag] as great as the show has been but I have some theories on how it might be done.
Earth, the final frontier.
The [tag]fleet[/tag] will find [tag]Earth[/tag], that’s no [tag]theory[/tag], but what Earth will they find? I very much doubt it’ll be a present day Earth. That’s what the original show did. And lo, the fans looked upon it and it was lame. I don’t think this show will make the same mistake.
If it’s not the Earth as we know it, what will it be? There are two possibilities that I see.
It’s a future Earth, with the technology to help protect them from the [tag]cylons[/tag] or a future Earth that’s dead. Yep, a barren dust ball. We’ve already destroyed ourselves, the cylons are too late.
Prehistoric Earth, the lost colony couldn’t make it. Either they never made it to Earth or they died out. All the fleet finds is a wild untamed planet.
Now, if the fleet finds either uninhabited Earth what are they gonna do? Stop there and wait for the cylons to destroy them? Not a frakin’ option. Keep going and hope they find someone who can help them? Nope, [tag]Edward James Olmos[/tag] was cast as [tag]Adama[/tag], not Kate Mulgrew. They will make their stand. The fleet will colonize Earth. They will become the [tag]thirteenth coloney[/tag]. This is why I’m leaning towards the prehistoric Earth theory. I believe we’ll find out that we are the descendants of the fleet.
