‘Twas the Night Before Comic-Con, when all through the house
Blaise was not stirring, neither was the mouse,
His bags were packed and placed by the stairs,
In hopes that he would soon be up in the air;
Chris was nestled all snug in his bed,
While visions of Hall H panels danced in his head.
Chris in his Always Keep Fighting tee, and I in my Sinceriously tank;
Had settled our brains for a week that would be dank.
Year’s ago, when I first discovered my passion for movies, television and all things pop culture, I knew that I would have to go to San Diego Comic-Con at least once in my lifetime. While it always seemed like a pipe dream, tomorrow it will come true, as Chris and I head out bright and early to San Diego. Yes, we will be representing Awesome Mix Podcast as well as the other website we contribute to, TVOvermind.com, as press.
It still hasn’t fully kicked in that I’m headed to one of my dream destinations, and I’m sure that it won’t feel like reality until I step onto the plane tomorrow. SDCC gets kicked off tomorrow night with the exclusive, “Preview Night,” that allows some of the guests to come experience the pilot episodes of the anticipated new Fall shows as well as the opportunity to check out the booths and everything they offer.
Throughout the week, Chris and I will be attending multiple TV related round tables for some of the most popular shows such as Archer, Outlander, iZombie, The 100, and more. All of the coverage will be audio translated into articles aside from The 100, which we will be conducting in-person video interviews with the cast and creators. We will also be attending plenty of panels as well as other popular events such as the Nerdist Podcast with guests Masie Williams, Tom Hiddleston and Guillermo Del Toro, Conan’s: “Not Your Grandma’s Bingo,” and a couple of NerdHQ events.
We plan on getting our content out as soon as possible when we return to the hotel room each night. This is something we’ve both been looking forward to for years and plan on making the most of it. I even plan on writing about my experience waiting for exclusives (if I get any). A lot of good stuff should come out of this week and we want to be timely and informative with it all.
This is really a dream come true for both of us, and we’re excited to document the entire journey.
Follow both of us on Twitter for live updates as we are experiencing everything, and even feel free to follow me on Snapchat where I will be adding tons to my story.
