So, Jenna Coleman, Alex Kingston and Paul McGann are going to be at Chicago Tardis at the end of November.

Should I go to this? Is it a good con, well run, etc?

I am SO tempted. Anyone going?

Cons

ailurophile6: (xfiles)
So, this year I was originally slated to attend 8 cons.

Cleveland WW was cancelled due to weather. I did go to Sherlocked. Star Trek in June was cancelled because Karl Urban cancelled and Colm Meaney was appearing too late on Sunday evening (my flight home was at the same time and would have cost $400 to change).

I went to Shore Leave and Stargate Chicago. I did not go to WW Chicago because Matt Ryan and Arthur Darville cancelled :(

Dragon Con is coming up this weekend. Really looking forward to seeing John Noble, Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie from Sleepy Hollow, as well as my favorite person, DAVID HEWLETT :D

Then, more disappointment, because Colm Meaney cancelled his appearance at WW Pittsburgh....

However!!!

They added Mitch Pileggi and David Duchovny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously, this is the best news :D I can't wait!

And in October, it's off to London to see Benedict in Hamlet (twice), Mark Gatiss in Two Days in the Country, and John Finnemore's Souvenir Cabin!! Also Madame Tussauds, London Eye, Speedy's and Stonehenge are on the must do list. And the National Gallery to see any Van Gogh they have, and the Celtic exhibit at the British Museum.

P.S. So happy with the Cumberbaby info: Christopher Carlton Cumberbatch, born 6/1/15 \o/ LOVE the alliteration, the use of Ben and his dad's middle name, and the connection Christopher has to Ben's career. Perfect choice :)

This is my favorite time of year. Football season is underway, hockey is not far behind, the weather is perfect.

I am still working on home renovation. Finally got a decent quote for flooring, now I just have to find time to have it installed, lol. Kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity are next on the list.

So, what are you all up to?!

I went to Shore Leave 2 weekends ago, just to see Tony Curran \o/ and the other Tarrs from Defiance :)

Also was lucky enough to see John Barrowman and David Nykl again, and Roger Cross for the first time!

It was lovely spending time with [livejournal.com profile] duckyone and [livejournal.com profile] bleekabyebye :)

My computer died. Fuck. I don't want to spend the day setting up a new one, I had other plans. Plus, I don't want to spend the money on a new one when this one is not that old and I am so pissed off right now I could scream.

ep5

I don't really celebrate Easter. Today, I get to visit my sister in the hospital and then my parents and I are going to dinner.

My sister recently moved to a new group home, and started 'acting up' so now she's in the pysch unit and frankly, not doing well. Her brain has been destroyed by 25 years of medication (for schizophrenia) and she isn't recognizable as my sister anymore. They'll adjust her meds and the downhill cycle will continue :(

In addition, a couple weeks ago, when I was with her, my mom had a TIA. Scared the hell out of me. She's been fine since, and all her tests are coming back ok, but listening to someone spout gibberish as they think they are making perfect sense is creepy. She turns 80 tomorrow.

We're in the middle of planning an 80th birthday party for her and my dad, to be held next month. I hope they're both up to it!

We went to see Barry Manilow last week. As awesome as ever!

Next weekend I'm meeting Noah Wyle! I'll post my pics :) Really glad The Librarians got a second season, as I loved the first one. And of course, he's in Falling Skies!!

Less than 3 weeks until the Sherlock Con. In addition to autographs and photo ops with SIXTEEN guests!!!! I have a GROUP PHOTO with the main attending cast on the 221B set! I might just keel over after that one, lol. I can't wait to meet them all, especially BENEDICT OMG.

And one of my 13 year old cats went missing for a day and a half. Turns out he snuck into the garage and then hid from me. He finally decided he'd had enough and asked to be let back into the house, lol. But I was relieved to find him, I'd looked everywhere.

The Pens are playing so badly they might not even make the playoffs. Unbelievable! We have the 2 best players in the world. The new coach is a huge disappointment.

So that's what's been going on with me recently. What are you all up to? No one seems to be on lj anymore :(

YAY!

John Noble is coming to Dragon Con!!!!

I was so upset when he cancelled a few years ago. I hope he doesn't do that again.

Also, more Fringe and/or Sleepy Hollow guests would be awesome!! That's where I'd be all weekend :D

ailurophile6: (live long and prosper)
I join the geek world to mourn the passing of Leonard Nimoy :( Star Trek TOS was my first sci fi love, and even tho I knew it was coming, this makes me very sad. He lived long and prospered!

With their usual tact and competency, Creation sent out an email today announcing that all of the Chicago Star Trek Con ticket options are now on sale. Nice timing (not)

So I go to look and they have KARL URBAN and COLM MEANEY. OMG I have wanted to meet Colm forever (Hell on Wheels!!). They also have Linda Park and John Billingsley. And Tim Russ and his band are doing a concert.

I want to go! I can fly in Saturday morning and fly home Sunday evening and it's very affordable, even getting the Silver ticket, which includes Colm's autograph.

TOO BAD I CAN'T ACTUALLY BUY A TICKET BECAUSE ONLY GOLD SEATS ARE AVAILABLE WHEN YOU TRY TO BUY TICKETS. I HATE CRETIN.

ETA: Got my silver ticket in the first row so I can get my autographs as quickly as possible!!
ailurophile6: (boldly going nowhere)
So we are not going to Cleveland today. It's snowing like crazy (we're supposed to get 8 inches) and the turnpike is closed due to an accident.

I emailed Wizard World to see if I can exchange my ticket for Pittsburgh in September. I'll probably lose my money on the Karen Gillan autograph though :(

I'd much rather be home safe and warm anyway.

Whose bright idea was it to have a con in Cleveland in February? LOL

Be safe out there everyone!!

News!

ailurophile6: (i am sherlocked)
I just found out that Sasha Roiz cancelled for Cleveland this coming weekend :( but they added Adrian Paul! So, we're going just Saturday now (it's a short drive) to see Adrian, Karen Gillan, and Shatner.

This saves me from a hotel charge and I can use the money for Sherlocked: The Event!!!!!!!!

YES, I AM GOING to the first Sherlock con. London, April 24th-26th. (Happy Birthday to me!)

AND I BOUGHT THE PLATINUM TICKET! This means in person autographs from and photo ops with all guests. Benedict is going to be there!!! Also Moffat and Gatiss, and I can't wait to see who else they add.

(And congrats to Ben and Sophie on their marriage yesterday!)

I also get a photo on the set (TBD) and a seat in the front. I'm so excited!! If they announce one in the states I'm going to that one too, I can afford it.

I'm still going to see Hamlet in October, too, because that ticket is non refundable.

Nathan Fillion was announced for Wizard World Pittsburgh \o/ He was in Toronto a few years ago when I was there, but his lines were way too long. I'm hoping to get to meet him here :)

It snowed all day yesterday so I just cleaned and did laundry and cleared out the DVR, lol. Today I get to shovel the driveway and watch hockey :)

Hope you're all having a warm and fun weekend!!
ailurophile6: (holmes/watson acd era)
Seems like no one is around these days. I'm here every day, posting to [livejournal.com profile] hewlett_daily if nothing else....

Finally caught up on everything on my DVR yesterday, lol. With hockey season in full swing, I record almost everything I want to watch.

Today I'm going to see my nephew E play in his third consecutive PIHL All Star Game. He's a senior, so this will be his last (high school) all star game. GO E! \o/

Tomorrow I'll be trying to get a ticket to Sherlock: The Event in London April 24-26th!! I'm going all out on this (happy bday to me!) so wish me luck! However, this is only happening if they have Ben and/or Martin signed on.

Believe it or not, they are not announcing any guests until the tickets go on sale! Crazy London people!! :/

I'm still going in October too, but probably not for a whole week.

Julian continues to keep my old cats on their toes! He and Jack have a great time playing every morning. Amazingly, they haven't broken anything! lol

In 2 weeks I'm going to Cleveland to see Sasha Roiz (Renard on Grimm) and some hobbits and dwarves ;)

In mid April, Steel City Con here in Pgh has NOAH WYLE!!!! I'm doing the photo op and autograph. LOVE Falling Skies and The Librarians :)

Also going to Chicago in August for Stargate (no DHew makes me sad) and Dragon Con in September.

Wizard World is having a con here in Pgh the weekend after DC. Can't wait to see who they get!

And I've seen 7 of the 8 movies nominated for Best Picture. Boyhood better not win, it's the worst of them. I still say The Imitation Game should win simply for the entertainment factor and terrific performances. Or The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is a great movie! I know Benedict is not going to win, but Michael Keaton BETTER WIN best actor; he gave the performance of his life in Birdman!

So, what are you all up to? What do you think of the Oscar race?!

And if anyone is ever coming to Pgh, or wants to go to a con here, please let me know!
