My favorite moments of New York Comic Con this year. So much fun with Alex cosplaying as Daenerys and Jorah. We had fun in this alternate world where Dany and Jorah are happy and in love. Also, the guy as Drunk Cersei was my absolute favorite Game of Thrones cosplay we saw.
And as always, it’s time to brag about how adorable my godson Kalel is. A+ parenting to Melvin (and Lora who was sorely missed this year!) as always.
My favorite moment of the entire weekend was absolutely meeting Brian K Vaughan. Between Saga and Runaways and Y the Last Man, he was written my absolute favorite comics ever. It was such a pleasure to finally shake his hand and thank him for everything. He is probably one of the nicest guys in the world. And he immediately said that my costume was amazing, so yeah. Highlight of my life.
Fun fact about me: I am obsessed with podcasts. I started listening back in 2008 when Rooster Teeth (known for the web series Red vs Blue) decided to start a podcast. I’d been part of the RT community since the show started and I had always loved listening to the DVD commentaries, so to suddenly have a new version of a commentary every week was pretty much the greatest thing ever. A couple years later, I discovered Doug Loves Movies. Then Nerdist. Then Comedy Death Ray (now Comedy Bang Bang). I was OBSESSED. I still am obsessed. And now there are a ton of food related podcasts I can listen to.
Then two of my best friends from Rhode Island started their own podcast. I immediately started to drop hints and shamelessly begged to come on for an episode. Ben’s response was pretty much “shut up, of course. You love podcasts more than life.” So back in February while I was in the middle of my externship, I took a couple days off from my day job, headed to RI, and recorded this awesome podcast. This went up back in April and since I was losing my mind working 70 hours a week, I forgot to spread the link around!
We talked about everything from living in New York, going to school, the decision to go back to school, lots of musical theatre, and my time filming a reality show. It was so great to joke around and use this as an excuse to catch up and talk in depth about a ton of things we wouldn’t chat about. (Hilarious moment in the podcast thanks to hindsight: I talk at one point about how I’d like to balance Oceana with a part time job at a bakery. Oh what a naive fool I was!)
Dave and Ben are fantastic and I highly recommend listening to some of their other episodes! They are on a hiatus at the moment, but they are fantastic hosts. Here’s the link to my episode, or you can head straight to iTunes and download it. Other great episodes: Susan Ryan, Bryan Keilty, Thor Jensen, and Curt Dumas.
Or listen to me be a weirdo!
MY BLOG IS BACK! And I did a podcast!! Enjoy all of that shit!
Answer me this
Why is there not an ASOIAF TALK SHOWS AU fic somewhere out there
Where aging actor/comedian Ned Stark begrudgingly agrees to host The Tonight Show after Jon Arryn finally fucking retires but he ends up way over his head because late night TV is cutthroat as fuck.
I need this in my life Liz.
