Re: Days of the Dead- February 2-4, 2018- Atlanta, GA

Barbara Bingham (Jason Takes Manhattan) added. Don't know if it's a "first time ever", but I've never seen her at a con, and I've been following the hobby closely since around 2009, so she's super rare in any respect. That makes 2 super rare and 1 uncommon Jason Takes Manhattan guests already for th...

Re: Hollywood Sexual Harrassment/Assult Accusations

Franken is on his own I believe, but honestly why should he quit? Trump has 8 times the accusers and laughed it off (literally). If you have to defend a guy by saying "Look, at least he has fewer sexual assault victims than this other person does...", it's a sign you probably shouldn't be defending...

Re: Hollywood Sexual Harrassment/Assult Accusations

If Democrats don't boot Franken, then having a side investigation on Stone would just give the Franken scandal a lot more legs in the press, and keep the pressure up for him to step down. Unless they're going to argue that the allegation was a complete fabrication and a political smear campaign by t...

Re: Hollywood Sexual Harrassment/Assult Accusations

When it comes to sexual assault, comparing degree is irrelevant. If you commit it, you shouldn't be serving in the Senate. The major difference between Franken and all of the other recently accused abusers is that there's definitive photographic proof that 100% supports what they accuser said happen...

Re: Hollywood Sexual Harrassment/Assult Accusations

Franken certainly would be fine in Alabama, almost nothing disqualifies you down there. Well, considering that Franken's still in office after the photo went public and hasn't been forced to resign, apparently that behavior doesn't "disqualify" you in Minnesota either. Hell, killing a woman in a DW...

Re: Japanese Wrestling Trip

AJ, will you be seeing Tiger Mask (Sayama), Kensuke Sasaki, Tiger Chung Lee or any of the '70s / '80s / '90s wrestlers who worked the territories or WCW? At this point, it doesn't look likely, unless it's by dumb luck. There's several retired Japanese wrestlers who own bars/restaurants in Tokyo, or...

Re: Japanese Wrestling Trip

The two weekw I'm going, I could pretty much go to Korakuen Hall every day to see wrestling, and often see two in one day. It's insane how much wrestling is going on in the same city and the same venues.

Re: Hollywood Sexual Harrassment/Assult Accusations

Add Al Franken to the list - and his accuser produced a picture of him mugging for the camera with his hands on her breasts, as she appears to be asleep.

Is there ANYONE left, either in politics or Hollywood, who isn't a complete scumbag?

Re: Big Event 14 — March 10th, 2018 — Queens, NY

I've heard Bret Hart's name floated around but a few vendors but, apparently, it might not work out. I don't think I need him anymore, pretty much cleaned up on him at the last show. Done with wrestling cons unless Billy Jack shows up one day.... I doubt that will happen. I've heard rumblings that ...

Re: JOresky's Chiller Theatre October 2017 Report

PS: Zin Burger way overpriced and overrated! But beats the crappy Chinese buffet that's for sure. Gotta say the "new" Jerry really living it up! If you want non-fast food close to the Chiller hotel that's not way expensive, the Fuddruckers is the place to go. Hell, I'm usually consent to just hit u...

Re: On the road again....HorrorHound Columbus report

Awesome stuff..is your poster complete now? Nope - With these I now have all the people I "should" have (the ones that have done cons), as well as a few rare street meet ones, but there's still probably a half dozen or so cast members who have never done any signings and I don't have any street inf...

On the road again....HorrorHound Columbus report

Went road tripping yet again - this time taking the "relatively short" (lol) trip to Columbus Ohio for HorrorHound - this one was "only" around 8 hours each way, as opposed to the 10+ hours to Indianapolis, Kentucky, etc. The highlite of the con for me was the F13 part 5 reunion, featuring rare appe...

Re: Monster-Mania 39 - March 9-11, 2018 - Cherry Hill, NJ

Wow, he's also doing the costumed op, which makes 4 costumed Jasons at the show, which I would assume is a first for any horror con.

So barring cancellations, this looks to be my first Cherry Hill MMania appearance in around two years or so.

Re: Hollywood Sexual Harrassment/Assult Accusations

First of all, not every case is the same. Polanski's victim has fought on his behalf for decades. Well, his victim was 13 at the time, so even if they argued it was consensual, it would still be statutory rape. And since he fled the country to avoid serving a single day in jail, there was never any...
