It's a Burton and Depp Kind of Day at Comic Con...


...At least that's what I'll remember as the highlights of the first full day at SDCC. :-)))

Huge thanks to my daughter and her bf for literally sleeping on the grass outside the convention center from 6 pm Weds. evening so I could join them at 6am Thursday for the last few hours wait to snag some coveted seats in Hall H. Unfortunately, the TWILIGHT crazies began lining up two days ago, so it forced everyone else...(Burton enthusiasts)... to gather their sleeping bags and head over there much earlier than anticipated.

First up...Robert Zemeckis and his new version of Scrooge. Gorgeous 3D, but seemed a bit slow. Then the man of the hour, tremendous crowd love for Mr. Burton, surpassed only by the applause for his clips of ALICE IN WONDERLAND...Truly Fucking AWESOME!!!!! (and we got to watch them three times! *yay*)...but the biggest excitement of the day came when Tim's "imaginary friend," Johnny came out as the surprise guest.  It was a short appearance, but most definitely the high point of the trip so far.

Then I had to sit through the TWILIGHT snooze panel (sorry, offend, but no. Just no. I really don't get the fascination.) Next up we were treated to 25 minutes of random scenes from James Cameron's AVATAR. Gorgeous, unique, a bit weird and will be interesting to see how it all comes together...it was fun to see Sigourney Weaver and Zoe Saldana though.

Hoping to post my Burton/Depp video this evening, but the connection at this hotel is so sloooow, we'll see. I'm sure someone else with better seats will have it up already. :-)

The kids are sleeping out there again tonight, so hopefully more fun from Hall H tomorrow, plus John and Naoko are signing at the Hollzheimers booth all day tomorrow and Saturday. Good times!...and sore feet. :-)))

Thanks so much for posting all those vids you've made! The effort you went to is really appreciated. And they're excellent!
Still have a few more to go. Innuendo Squad 3 will be going up in a few minutes, and then when I get my video camera repaired I'll be able to post the rest of the Tim Burton Q&A plus Robert Downey Jr. in Sherlock Holmes, and Denzel Washington/Gary Oldman were pretty funny for the Book of Eli panel.

Although, John and David were definitely my favorites of the weekend. :-)

Glad you enjoyed!
hey there lv2bliberal!

i hope your week has been going great! :)

um. i've got a question tho. i hope you don't mind me asking it, as i too am overjoyed you're sharing all your con-going vids with us, as they are/were all awesomely well-done! :D

but um i recently faved part 5, the last missing part of the david/doctor who panel, over on my YT account, for easy YouTube viewing, but it didn't save to my faves list. all the rest appeared under my faves, but not that one? do you know wat happened? or am i just hullucinating its vanishing act?

~your pal,

No it was my mistake. It appeared to me as though it hadn't uploaded and was taking a Very long time, so I deleted it and tried again. It's up for good now. For some reason 4 of 6 and 5 of 6 were just giving me grief today, but they're up now.

Going to load Innuendo Squad now. :-)

Sorry about the confusion.
thanks! :) no confusion was had by me tho. not a lot, anyway. ;) thanks again for being so thorough tho! :D Innuendo Squad 2? There's a NEW 2009 version? there's gonna be a sequel to your fantabulous 2008 Gareth/John edition? i am thusly & highly intrigued! :D was gareth there this year too tho (even tho he wasn't on-panel)?
