Look at the Stars, Look How They Shine for You Me

Bring me Comic-Con Treats!Tron: Legacy is due out in 2010. I don’t know that I’m really up for a remake/sequel/prequel/tribute to Tron as it was for what it was and it was pretty damn awesome. It’s the sort of movie I can throw in the DVD player and watch with my son and we can both enjoy it. Yes, some of the special effects are dated, but the concept behind them, the stars for which they reached are apparent and make the movie work.

But that’s not the main reason I’m blogging this. No, I’m blogging because Jeff Bridges is in San Diego. Right now. For Comic Con. Hello! Has everyone forgotten my ruv for him? How did I not get invited to be his special assistant for the duration of his visit? How? HOoooooooooooooooooooow? (Almost a howl, isn’t it? It’s really that painful for me.)

Johnny Depp’s also in town. Same reason. Not the same movie, but for publicity for Alice in Wonderland, which appears to be very Mad Hatter-centric, which might make the movie interesting. Oh whatever. It’s JOHNNY DEPP. And for all you google bots: Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp Johnny Depp. There, I should be covered on traffic for JOHNNY DEPP AT COMIC-CON IN SAN DIEGO for the weekend. I’ll be too busy otherwise to blog much (and I’ve run out of advance posts — unless I race through something now and I’m not in a racy mood right now…race-ish…”racy” is almost a fatal character flaw of mine. You’ll see.)

Miguel Ferrer, Bill Mumy (always had the Robot giving him the “Danger Danger” speech), Ray “FREAKIN” Bradbury(!! “The Illustrated Man” turned my world upside down for two days), June Foray (“Rocky and Bullwinkle Show” — voiced Rocket J. Squirrel and Nastasha — I spent half my trip in Alaska doing a very bad Nastasha “Moose und Squirrel” bit [my deepest apologies to my guides]), Kathy Najimy, Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster), ELVIRA!!!!, and Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage are going to be there, too. Maybe, just maybe, Danny DeVito and Robert Downey Jr, will show up. Keith David’s going to be there for sure (for Coraline, but I love him mostly for Sgt. Kilgore in Delta Farce: Sgt. Kilgore: Now, Larry, I’m appointing you as acting Squad Leader. Don’t get too excited.You beat out a mongoloid and a candy-ass. How does one not adore such a man? He broke his back while filming Delta Farce, finished the scene, and then went the hospital. I totally love him.
Everette: [to Bill] He called you a candy-ass.)

Also in town are the fine folks from Burn Notice and Psych, two of my USA shows. That means Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, BRUCE CAMPBELL (!!!!), James Roday, Dule Hill, possibly Corbin Bernsen will all be in town. C’mon, folks. You’re killing me. I have so much going on this weekend as it is and you bring some of my favorites to town…mere miles away from me and I’m expected to act sane? Jeff Bridges alone is enough to make me lose my shit. Anyone seen Starman? Seriously one of his best movies EVER. And then you add Johnny Depp and Bruce Campbell and it’s like a trifecta in my little world. It could only be made better with an appearance by Craig Ferguson. Or Drew Carey. Okay, so I have a southern Drew Carey-lite here. That’s beside the point.

I’m not there. I’m here. I have things to do. Which I’m doing. And enjoying a great deal (no complaints from me), but…the opportunity to add to my collection of…people…would be so nice.

OOOOOOOOOHHHHH! Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi — the genius minds behind the Spiderwick Chronicles will be there and they were amazingly talented storytellers and artists. I LOOOOOOVEE THEM!

So…Work with me people. If you go to Comic-Con and don’t bring me back one of the above mentioned perfect three, we may have to reconsider our friendship. (I’m willing to work out a timeshare deal, if that helps.)

I know they’re here for me, though. They’re wonderful for me. Because…I’d shine for them if given the chance. Honest, I would. And they’re all pretty cool about proactive shining. They shine for me.

(Guarantee that no matter how dorky that just read, it’s heaps better than the “we were young and amazing once” post that was crinkling around in a piece of paper in my head. Ad that could still show up anyway.)

Remember, if you’re at Comic-Con, bring me my darlings. Ooooooh! And if Jackie Earle Haley walks by you, scoop him up and put him in one of those gift bags and bring him along, too. Pretty please!

Oh…maybe next year. (If I keep saying it long enough, it’ll happen, right?)

    You’re starting to sound eerily like a Twilight Zone episode. ;)

  3. Google is my friend. Or I’d have never known who the hell you were talking about.

  4. Bill Mumy makes me think of a time I was working in Sacramento. I worked on the 12th floor, and one day my coworkers and I noticed some workers on the roof of a building next to us. Apparently they noticed us watching, and the next day they had painted “Danger Will Robinson” in big letters across the roof. Cracked me up.

    And I love Bill Mumy…especially in his role on B5. Enjoy your time there!
