    Hey guys!!!!
    I think all this excitement over the new figures shown, and the fact that MILTONWAS THERE, and the footage he and Kinniku have so far, etc etc etc, all point to one suggestion:
    WE NEED TO HAVE A MEETING!!!
    Who's game, and when can we do it?
    I'm free every weekend in August except the first, how bout you guys?
    Who wants to host?

    Sdcc Woho

    OH MY GOD, Sdcc was definatly one of the coolest and roughest experiences of my life. I left wednesday morning, and of course my plane took off late. I would have been a but peeved, but it was late because they held it for me. So I get to San Diego, check into my hotel room and ask how far away the convention center is. They tell me a mile so I figure it shouldnt be a bad walk, considering the convention shuttle didnt stop anywhere near my hotel. So we decide to walk, well 3 and half mile later we have to ask for directions, luckly we werent filming that night becasue lugging all the equipment would have been hell. I turned out we went the totally wrong way and had to back track quite a bit. So finally we get there and get in the 2 hour long line for press passes, only to be told to get into a different line when we got to the counter. After spending 30 minutes in that line tey tell me that they have a new computer system and that I actually have to go back to my original line. After traversing that line I had to spend 20 minutes telling 5 different people why I was there. Finally they call they head of press relations over who immeadatly gives us our passes. Tehn I have to go through 6 people to get inside the con, granted I actually wasnt suppossed to be in the con yet, press were not allowed to enter early, I wasnt angry about the lengths I went through for that. So I got inside and totally everything was ok. I finally found val, and had to immeadatly go to the NECA booth after noticing the enormous line that had formed for the hordak bust. I got the bust and the first day was over.
    Thursday we lugged the equipment through San Diego, this time having a well thought out mapped route and arrived at the con. After we filmed out side and in the concourse area we proceeded to Val and hung out for a while, I met with Emiliano and Enza, Matt and his wife, Leeanna and her husband, Lori ann and her room mate and countless org members. I go get my she ra ticket, which was of course a looser. So I trucked on and filmed the rest of the day, stopping only to watch wonder woman smoke a cigarette and to see a couple of Knights sword fight and for me to become a fan boy for a little while. Then we went back to the hotel and got some much need sleep. Friday was work day, spent almost totally fiming and interviewing from 10:30 till 7:00. I got Emiliano to do an incredably awsome Hordak sketch for me, and Myself, my cameraman, and my fiance went out to dinner with the Mv crew. We ate at the old spagetti factory, were upon walking out I found a 40$ Art Asylum exclusive Stealth Batwing on top of a trash can. We then proceeded to the hyatt to hang with Val, Emiliano, and Enza some more( everyone else went to bed, partypoopers ). Tahts where I bumped into Joe Quesada and proceede to make a total fan boy idiot of myself , Eric Lawson, and hung out a little while with comedian Chris Posehan.
    Saturday we ran by the con real quick to get a few more shot of the crowd and went ot the airport to catch our flight out, so not to make it late again. So over all it was cool, it was a huge place, and getting to see tose two ups in person directly infront of me was so incredably awsome. It was also more than cool actually gettin to spend some time with Val and the Mv crew, and the more I get to know them all the more I respect and support everything they do. Everyone is just incredable and I am beyond thrilled that they are letting frank and I do this documentary on them. I cant thank them enough and I definatly cant even begin to express just how awsome it was hanging out with them. I wish I could have gotten exclusives for everyone, christopher I tried three day and couldnt get one for you Im very very soory Bro, Frank I have your freddie figure, Val was getting your other one. Ive got pictures of it all at http://www.fire-light.cc/san_diego/san%20diego.html ( please disregard the first one, its just me in the bed hugging my fiance in my pj's), and there are a couple more here at this address

    later,
    milton

    Head to toe...I'm 100% green. I need to find a better job that allows me to do some traveling like that. If I didn't like you guys so much I'd probably have to off Milton and at least paralyze Frank. Coincidentally I was on vacation last week but alas did not have the funds to be flying willy-nilly off to SDCC. That's twice in a month I've missed out on big things. This just won't do. Somebody host a freaking meeting!!!!! I need my toy fix.

    Customs

    A while back I offered my services on a custom like the castle I have. I got no responses so am I to assume no one liked/wanted one?
