The meeting with Godzilla went great.
Picture a warehouse converted into a monster-sized theme park attraction where we got to experience a Godzilla attack with these cool filters you use on your phone to enhance the experience.
I stopped by Wednesday and my nerd senses were tweaking so much I forgot to ask where Gadzuki was, but that’s probably for the best.
The night ended with a rooftop party at the Hotel Solamar thrown by Hitflix and CBS Films for the movie The To Do List. I saw Rachel Bilson hanging out by the pool and Aubrey Plaza with a drink in one hand surrounded by a mob of nerds vying for her attention.
It was a gorgeous night and the perfect beginning to a crazy few days that started with hanging out with Wilmer Valderrama. I have a huge Comic-Con ahead of me. There’s plenty to do and little time to do it, but I have done my homework and plotted my course for the week.
My own to-do list:
I’ll be on Fox and MTV talking CON and if you want to come hang with me, I just moderated TV Land’s Legends of Comedy panel today featuring none other than Captain Kirk, himself, William Shatner, along with Roseanne Barr, Wayne Knight and Donald Faison. Later, I’ll be interviewing guitar legend Slash on stage at Petco Park, and on Friday at Lyceum I’ll be hosting a super-secret event. On Saturday, I’ll be palling around with my friend Chris Hardwick on the Nerdist panel.
Then it’s Dexter‘s final panel ever, which is so depressing, but THEN there’s the X-Files 20th Anniversary … wait for it with agents Mulder and Scully!
I also want to check out Ender’s Game and Divergent, which is supposed to be amazing! Then I hoof it to three parties, a haunted house and hook up with Sly and Arnold for the premiere of Escape Plan.
Friday I’ve got to hit Game of Thrones, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and my new fave TV show, Orphan Black. I am secretly (ok, not so secretly) praying for Jason Momoa run-in, who will be there for his new film Wolves.
Plus I have to see Edgar Wright and his panel on The World’s End, Vin Diesel with Riddick, Spider-Man and then get my mandatory Metallica!
Then it’s off to the Maxim and Playboy parties – I can sleep when I’m dead, walking or otherwise.
Hopefully after all of that I will still be alive as Saturday is turning out to be a massive ogle-fest. I mean Hugh Jackman, Chris Evans, Michael Fassbender, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston (WHAT!!).
Also really psyched about X-Men, Captain America, Thor, Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Gravity.
I heard Sandra Bullock will show up for her first Comic-Con, so I’ll be sure to keep my “Sandy stalkers” open, while on my way to the True Blood party and some much needed cocktails at The Awesomes party where I will hopefully be rump shaking the night away with my favorite SNL folks.
Sunday I will be all over Doctor Who‘s 50th anniversary panel and the final Breaking Bad panel ever to trade recipes before my chances are completely gone. By the end of Sunday night I will be sore, tired and satisfied.
