At What Point Do You Officially Become a Geek?

I know, I was probably one a long ago, but as I was watching the G4 networks live coverage of Comic Con tonight I felt as if I crossed the point of no return. :p

The highlight of their coverage was seeing Hugh Jackman who looks OMG SO GORGEOUS! Not that he was an eyesore before, but he just looked particularly fabulous. I was shocked o discover he was at Comic Con and so, apparently, were the people at Comic Con. He was a surprise guest at a panel this morning. Even though X-Men Origins: Wolverine is not due out until May 2009, he was there with some footage. Here's a pretty good recap of what footage was shown.

New Line is developing a sequel to 'Hairspray'. I just hope they can get the original cast back together.

I'm glad you all convinced me to post my Dr. Horrible thoughts, I've been enjoying the discussion. And people agreeing with me. ;)

Track schedules are starting to pop up for Dragon Con. It looks like we'll be spared a BSG vs Trek panel. Woo! I hear the American Sci Fi Track schedule is going to be tweaked (EJO was missing from the BSG panels and Jamie may have to cancel due to 'L&O: London' filming) and I'm waiting on some others, but expect me to be posting schedules in the coming weeks. I know you all can't wait for that. ;p

I baked banana blueberry cheesecake bread tonight. Yes, I did make the recipe up! Now, I think I shall go see if I baked it long enough.

Praise the Flying Spaghetti Monster! Now let's just hope that Jamie can find a way to attend.
Before I lost access to G4, I remember watching coverage of last years Comic-Con and it was quickly becoming a Movie Con for upcoming films based on Comics. All the big names were there promoting their movies, and had stars galore.

This may be a shift in what the Con is or at least separates it into 2 sections.
My brother told me last year that he was annoyed by all the tv stuff there, since he doesn't really watch any, so having half the place taken up by Heroes and what not was even more annoying than the movie stuff, because at least he's heard of the movies that are being hyped.

He only attended yesterday this year and thought the GI Joe push was a real hoot, but didn't stay that long because the lines for ILM were ridiculous and he didn't care about getting stuff signed. They also canceled the Magic card tournament so he couldn't do that with our young cousin.
I'm waiting to hear more from someone who went to get Jamie Bamber's autograph (he was there promoting 'Pulse 2') and, while she got to speak to him, she remarked there was some problems with the line and she was none too happy. I've been hearing a lot of little complaints about the con this year. It really has gotten too big.

About five minutes before you realise it's too late to be anything else ;)

The Wolverine movie is one I'm looking forward too, although I'm curious which version of his history they'll go for. Maybe the woman dying on the beach is meant to be Silver Fox? Hmm.

How do you make banana blueberry cheesecake bread? Isn't cheesecake a food type in it's own right?
I suppose I could say cream cheese, but since I add powdered sugar and vanilla to the cream cheese and then bake it it tends to take on a slightly different constancy so I use the term cheesecake. I don't know what the hell to call half the stuff I make. ;)
Heh. What doesn't he give a thumbs up? ;) But, hey, I don't think the film was as bad as most critics thought it was.
