I have heard it said that springtime at Shuangxi is yet lovely. I intend to sail there in a dainty boat.

Yes, is that’s time of year again. Time to pack up and head up to Atlanta to view all the freaks and weirdos downtown. (And the convention goers.) Last year was a little stressful with trying to be everywhere and visit everyone, but this time I’m avoiding as many commitments as possible. Just a couple of things to do and then I’ll be free to browse, take pictures, and annoy celebrities.

Ah, the celebrities. What would any convention be without those heroes of paper, stage, and screen, for the masses to descend upon and screech stupid questions at. Due to budget shortfalls in 2006, I avoided the celebrity sections as not to be tempted by the likes of Mickey Rooney and Grant Imahara. Yes, I frequent the famous ladies as well. But considering the majority of the people I see clustered around their tables are drooling, unbathed subhumans, I always feel a bit awkward when just trying to be normal and express a bit of appreciation about their work. Ah, the dangers of Con life. The big news, at least for me, is quite possibly the greatest D*C guest EVER.

I am, of course, speaking of the great Lou Gossett, Jr.

That’s right, Lou Gossett, Jr. (Or ‘The Lou‘ as he’s known around here.). He’s an amazing actor who has been in any number of incredible projects like Roots, An Officer and a Gentleman, Enemy Mine, Jaws 3, and what is one of my favorite all-time films, Iron Eagle. Yes, it’s no Citizen Kane, but it is still one hell of a good film. Heck, I love to watch Iron Eagle II! I am a huge fan of Lou Gossett Jr.’s, he is a tremendous actor and I am literally giddy with excitement that he’ll be at D*C this year. It’s going to take a tremendous amount of effort not to be one of the annoying bastards from the paragraph above.

For the first time, I will have a shiny new laptop at Dragon*Con so hopefully I’ll be able to publish pictures of convention attendees the same day I take them. I won’t be visiting any of the panels because I hate most of the pretentious, know-it-all, butt monkeys who run them, so don’t expect much in the way of Awesome Con Reports®. If there’s anything interesting, however, I’ll chronicle it if I remember.
