growyourwings: (CHEER Take your shoes off)
Morning of 2nd Vegas day.   Relatively early night last - got to sleep around midnight.

Quick important stuff summary: Had dinner with our friends.   Stood in line for about 3 hours to register.  Visited with all the fans and friends from all over the world.  So great to see everyone again.   We saw and visited briefly with Lynn (of Fangasm), Becky (of Winchester Bro), Amy (sweetondean/Winchester Family Business), Kat (of Kat Melanson Art)  Of course visited a lot with our core group - mrsr58, jensenite, jo_anne8, candygramme.   And many others, but my brain is not yet fully online.  

Saw Richard, Rob & his band.    Gave Richard his karaoke brochure and asked about perhaps getting on stage tonight to take a photo or two.   We'll see, he's going to be very busy.   He said to connect with him tomorrow as well as work my way up to the front of the stage to catch his attention.  Yeah right lol - along with 2,000+ other screaming people.  =D    No worries.  I can still get the shots I need from the floor.  It was almost more the 2 glasses of wine with dinner last night that gave me the gumption to ask.

I took an iphone video of the registration line but am having trouble getting it off my phone and uploading it anywhere from my phone.  So that will have to come after I return home I think.

Today is a late start (which is fantastic, in fact most days start off later than past cons-love that.)   We are relaxing in our room now.   We'll go to breakfast shortly.  Then 1pm the Elastic Waste Band (aka Rob's band, lol) kicks off the con.  Followed by Richard as his first official MC gig (even though he's been kinda doing it for years now.)  

Then 1:30 will be Rob & Matt's panel.  3:25 Chad & Gabe panel.  4:30 is James Patrick Stuart.   Followed by autographs.  Then 9pm is the Karaoke Party.   Photo ops interspersed through out of course.  I'm only doing a photo op with James Patrick Stuart today.

Looking forward to today.

Longer detail (and not so important stuff):
blah, blah, de-blah-blah.... :) )

I doubt I'll have the time or energy to do daily reports this detailed, but if I can / as I can, I may post short reports.   And of course photos as I can - but most photos will be posted when I return home.

Taken with iphone when we were just about done with our registration.  I was so very tired at this point.

Never done this before.  Posting of video might not work...

Louden Swain: Appearing In Concert At The Las Vegas Convention On Sunday Night!

The four-piece Los Angeles indie group Louden Swain makes music best described as a combo platter of classic, alternative and hard rock. That makes for a sound both loud and approachable, one that can blow your hair back even as it touches your heart. Fronted by lead singer and actor Rob Benedict, Louden Swain also includes bassist Mike Borja, lead guitarist Billy Moran and drummer Stephen Norton. The band's fourth full-length recording – Eskimo, was released earlier this year. For video and more information on the band please visit

AS A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL GOLD WEEKEND PATRONS, THIS SPECIAL CONCERT IS FREE TO YOU (all seating however, is general admission non-reserved for this show) For all other patrons, tickets will be available on a general admission basis for only $10, at the convention registration or at the concert doors. Time of performance to be announced at this website as we get closer to show date!

The ELASTIC WASTE BAND, Las Vegas' 4th most popular lounge act three years ago, will serve as our convention's house band throughout the event playing interstitially during the scheduled program.
