A sad day...
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.

Icon is appropriate!

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!

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!!

Hello! Anyone out there?!

Seems like no one is around these days. I'm here every day, posting to 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!

Great news :)

Just got back from seeing "Birdman" starring hometown boy Michael Keaton, who I hope is going to win an Oscar (sorry Benedict!). Odd movie (still better than the dreary Boyhood) and Michael was awesome!!

Best picture nominations

So, I have now seen 4 of the 8 movies nominated for best picture, and will do my best to see the rest of them.


Selma was very good, but it was very serious, with very little humor. Fantastic acting and directing, and the lack of nominations is a crime.

Grand Budapest Hotel was a wonderfully quirky movie, but I don't think it would be to everyone's taste.

The Imitation game was funny, touching, suspenseful and heartbreaking. Again, fantastic acting, writing, directing.

Boyhood, the favorite to win [Spoiler (click to open)]may be a unique piece of film making, but omg it's so freaking boring (and long, it's going on 3 hours now), filled with terrible acting. NOTHING HAPPENS. This boy floats through his life while his mother makes bad choice after bad choice, with no visible effect on him. What is the point of this dull, plodding, completely humorless movie?! This is NOT the best picture of last year!

If you've seen any of the nominated films, please share your opinions!

Random stuff...
no hate

Things that make me sad:

The terrorist acts in Paris :( My sympathies to everyone there, especially the family and friends of the hostages.

Another AirAsia plane lost at sea :(

The Steelers losing in the first round of the playoffs....

Seeing birthday notices for lj friends who haven't been around in years....

Listening to the last ep of Cabin Pressure (even tho it's hilarious!!)

Things that make me happy:

THEY'RE FILMING SHERLOCK AND IT'S A THROWBACK EPISODE!!

Benedict is going to be a daddy! :)

All of the nominations for Benedict and The Imitation Game!

The Pens are in first place \o/ and are as always, a contender for the Cup!

My new kitty (even tho he bites, hard!)

It's Saturday :D

And one minor irritant that really is terrible of me, but!

I'm sure Eddie Redmayne is great in The Theory of Everything, but it burns me up that he's being nominated for and may win awards for a role that Benedict played to perfection in Hawking, years ago. I know, that's stupid of me, lol

SO, anything you all want to get off your chests? LOL
