Lessons I Learned from New York Comic Con

Published by under Editorials

NYCC

 

I’ve been going to New York Comic Con for about three years now. NYCC holds a special place in my heart because it’s the first and only comic convention I’ve ever been to. I’ve been attending the event with three day passes for two years, but 2014 marks a special occasion since I’m attending as press for the first time. After attending for three years, I would like to believe that I’ve accumulated enough wisdom that’ll make me a pro at going to conventions. I found out that I still had much to learn after my last day of NYCC.

I’ve picked up a few things from friends and firsthand experience. Some of it is practical advice, but I’ll also dish out some of the meaningful things I’ve realized. Read on for more:

Please Shut Up – A Trip to the Theater

Published by under Editorials,Movies

gone-girl

As I stated in last week’s trailer post, I wanted and was going to go see Gone Girl. Friday night came and went, as did Saturday night, but low and behold an opportunity popped up on Sunday and I rushed to my local AMC at 4 in the afternoon. I’m uncertain if it was due to bad luck, if it was going to a movie in the afternoon, or if it was the simple act of seeing a film a week after it’s debut. Either way, I’m sure many of you would agree with me that there are good movie going experiences and bad ones.

This, as the title suggests, was a less than exceptional experience. There were multiple reasons for this, but two in particular stood out that I just had to get off my chest. One being the audience, and the other was the theater itself. Before I begin, I want you to know that I will do my best to go see a movie on opening night in hopes to avoid what I’m about to tell you – so I’ll take the responsibility and say that it was my own fault for the turmoil I endured.

Go here to see six kid games that adults took to ridiculous extremes.

“At some point, age catches up to most of us and we realize that other people’s genitals are way more interesting than tag or Monopoly.

Go here to see ranking the best HBO cast photos.

Boardwalk Empire’s law-breaking run ends this Sunday, which means we can’t look forward to any more gorgeous promotional photos from the 1930s-set series. HBO always does a great job with these. I’ll cop to owning a poster of the Six Feet Underpicture above. Just look at the flowers, Lizzie, er, Nate. Here’s a ranking, from worst to best, of HBO cast photos. Some shows, like Game of Thrones and The Wire, weren’t included because there aren’t any cast-wide photos.”

The Morning Link: Creepy Video Game Easter Eggs

Published by under Morning Link

creepy

“When you’re caught up in a good video game, you’re usually in a pretty oblivious state: you can barely notice your bladder is about to explode from not taking a bathroom break in 15 hours, let alone pay attention to every little detail on your screen. What better time for a developer to go ahead and slip in an inexplicably terrifying Easter egg that most people will never see?”

The Morning Link: Creepy Video Game Glitches

Published by under Morning Link

skyrim air

“There are few horrors that lurk in the deep places where man has not yet trod that can rival what happens when you play a game made by Bethesda. We’ve begun to suspect that either their developers are adding these nightmares intentionally or their office is haunted by the ghost of a shitty programmer. So it should come as no great surprise that characters in Skyrim will occasionally swim through the air.”

“What did we learn from Matthew McConaughey’s new interview with GQ? Well, a lot of things. For example, in the very first paragraph, we learned that he always carries a leather journal filled with “stray thoughts, doodles, visual diagrams of future roles, and whatever else pops into his head.””
