Preview night~

I hate to to be the barer of bad news (even though preview night started 20 minutes ago) but it's gonna suck. 60% of the exhibitors haven't set up, and at least 25% still haven't even registered. To those who this it was going ot be fancy special and yummy, it's not, you haven't missed anything.

=D

Thanks for the update, Nessa. Now I'm glad I worked today to earn some $$ for when I get back, and I'll be there before the con officially starts Thursday morning. (Come shout "AL!!!!!!!" in the at-con registration line to give me a wake-up call to get me psyched and ready for the con.) Still, my co-worker went today and prolly is at Preview-night right now, and it would've been fun to be there for another 5 day-con. Wait, I just did that at AX 2 weeks ago.. See you all tomorrow morning!!

I hope this isn't a sign of things to come on Thursday. Already gravely fearing the line to get in.

Some reason, my press badge didn't go through. I'm being sent there to film for G4 TV strictly to audition for G-Phoria and they claim that that's not a good enough reason to be considered press. I don't mind paying for my badge, but I do mind waiting 3 hours in the baking sun in a mile long line.

Oh well.

You could apply for a professional badge. They are distributed in the same area as the reagular attendee badges, but only cost $25, not $60. Does G4 TV has a booth at all in the exhibition or some contact at the convention besides you?

No G4 has no booth and they are not going to be able to get us our press proof until Saturday, (FedEx).

I'll try doing a pro badge, (though). Thanks for the info. This is the first year I don't get to just lounge around the convention and enjoy myself. It's all business.

No later then 7am, or you mean you're leaving the convention at 7pm? I'm taking off at 7am and should be in downtown by 7:20am or so.

I had a friend go to preview night, (he was trying to get early badges). Of course since he couldn't do anything, it was a big waste of a drive from LA.

But then he was just intrested in meeting some of the creaters who where there and the fact that he had a press pass made him feel all special or somthing.

Preview night sucked compared to last year. It was too short and when your in the middle of trying to buy something they said get the hell out its over LOL

I did however buy a blade replica sword for 5 bucks. I think that was worth the preview night. No one was cosplaying though hardley.
