Did a little photoshop with the GF this weekend, because we can. The interesting environments she knows about, and I am always game for.

And here are the last of the photos. Pretty sure they might need to do some expanding for next years NerdBot Con, because there was definitely more people this year. Question is, where would it take place at? or will they take up the entire convention center next year? I have no idea, but can’t wait for it.

And now, the end of this party.

It was a one day event in Pasadena, and I would say it was bigger this year then last. I had more fun this time but didn’t goto the after party this year. I got there a bit early so it was nice to see everything going on before everything started. not sure i’ve done that before, if I have, it’s been awhile. I think my favorite thing was seeing Carrie Fisher’s dog, Gary/ Because they will be the closest I’ll ever be to her.

Anyways, I’m posting the photos in two parts, because, there are a lot of photos.

Now for part one of this party.

While talking to my GF, she told me about this fashion style from Japan call Harajuku. She also told me about a gathering happening in Little Tokyo of it with a few others taking photos, and asked me to join her. I of course took photos, because, it’s me, and I got to have an adventure, which is something I always do enjoy.

Well, you learn about something new everyday, and sometimes it’s interesting.

Not as many photos on this day. Got there a bit later, and was a Gryffindor. Went around and got plenty more photos, and it was avoided going outside much as possible, because it was still wrongfully hot. As the day was coming to an end I discovered nearby a person protesting the convention. There is video in the post yesterday. As everything was going to a close, it started to rain, and went back to where I was staying.

I had a really good weekend.

And now, from the final day of the party.

Well, here are the rest of the photos from day one. Not much else to talk about since i’m pretty sure i about covered it in the first post. Well, a friend was the lead guy for a spiderman gathering, and asked me to take some photos form that. I did.

Well, more stuff to come, hold on for now.

Yeah, I got a lot of photos that day. The morning was kind of miserable for me because the Tracer I was going with had to take her gun back to where we were staying because, no guns, prop, toy or anything. I took it back myself and it was still morning by the time I was at the convention center again. As the day went on it was going better. And even thought many people that would have been there were at Dragoncon this weekend, I got plenty still. So much, I decided to split day 1 photos into 2 posts.

So here is part one of day one from this party this weekend.

A little adventure I had on saturday, I didn’t get much in photos, but did get plenty in prizes. I’ll post about that they were in another post, with video. for now, it is getting kind of late, and had quite a weekend, so i’m tired. Also excited about Long Beach Comic Con next week. That should be good.

As for now, miles of beefcakeness.

Well, That was a day with far more walking in the heat then I needed. But, all was good. I went to the Griffith to check it out, get there a bit later than I wanted but got some nice photos in. I told everyone I could if you are going there, do not drive, you will not find parking. While talking to one of the workers there she told me the lot was full at 5:30. There was also shuttle buses running from the Vermont/Sunset redline station, but the line was so long, and they kept getting stuck in traffic the only option I had was to hike. I made it there as the eclipse was just reaching it’s peak.

During that time walking up the hill, I was saying in a slightly crazed voice “the eclipse has started” and i got quite a few laughs out of that. As I got closer to the top, I started to say “the eclipse is near it’s peak” then started saying it’s at it’s peak. After I started to say it was ending, then while walking back down the hill, after it was all over I started to say “the eclipse has ended.” A friend there recorded much of that so I’m hoping the video will be online soon.

For now, praise the sun.

Despite how much time I spent trying to get there, I had a good time. It started off taking the gold line to the chinatown station, then walk to the closest entrance to Dodger Stadium, which was gated off. So, I had to walk another mile to reach a different entrance which was in fact open. Then it was a walk to the buses taking everyone to the start off location for the cars. Checked out each booth, took photos, and then went looking for a proper place to take photos. took till a few cars had gone down the hill but I had found something.

The location I found was a place that had some of red bull’s own filming crew, and ended up a good place to see some crashes. Had three happen in front of me. It was also rather close to the end of the track I felt lucky to see most of the cars, and there wasn’t many people in the place I was at. And after a car drove by, there was some shade near I can sit at till I hear the sound of the next one heading down the hill. Kind of a trumpet that was played over the speakers places along the track. After 61 cars, I had a long, yet entertaining day.

As for tomorrow, I’ll be putting my photos from the eclipse up.

And for now, start you engines.
