Not so Great Comic-Con 2008 coverage (post 3)

Well, I am tired and the feet are throbbing and that means it is a good con so far. We have finished daytime programming for Saturday, and are sitting outside in line for the myth busters panel. We went to a couple of panels today, and had one we were not able to get in to (Attack of the Show), and it looks like we may not be able to get into this one either. If I had to guess I would say we have a 50 / 50 shot of making it in. Seems like they may have made a bad guess at attendance for both of these panels today. We did make it into the Futurama panel first thing this morning even though we were running a little late. They had the whole cast there and as always, John DiMaggio was Hilarious (voice of Bender). This was followed by the Simpsons Panel. They did not have any of the voices there but had all of the producers, head writer and the two animation leads. They talked about the new ride at Universal Studios, apparently it is all cgi and 3d like the Treehouse episode when homer got lost behind the bookcase. We also made it for the last 3/4 of Quickdraw, it overlaped with the simpsons panel and I was not going to leave simpsons early. Quickdraw is like a comedy sports competition, but instead of acting out in improvised scene, they have comic book illistrators drawing the scenes on over head projectors. It is amazing to see how with no effort and barely any time they can make these drawings. Most of them are less then 30 seconds.

Well I guess that is it for now, and since we are out side in the middle of knowhere, I dont have WiFi and dont know when i will actually post this, but I will worry about that later.
