    I have been going for years. First time I went was late 90's when you could walk up and buy a ticket that day. Reason I went the first year? For a Buffy panel of course I have a lot of friends that do artwork and other stuff in the industry. My claim to fame is my best friend's husband does some of the artwork for Tony Hawk skateboards, some of his designs are even toys you can buy at Target - how cool is that? They clued me in to the fact I could get "professional" status so guaranteed tixs to Comic-Con. Granted my status is "Admin Pro" as support person (thru my real job), not "Creative Pro", so I have to buy my tixs and have to get all 4 days, so it gets a little expensive. I'm going for "Creative Pro" this time, hence the forum name change as part of my paperwork. Wish me luck!! I don't dress up (I suck), but have a great time people watching, hitting "the floor" to shop, and seeing what my friends contributed. I've had some super fun experiences over the years at Comic-Con. One of my favs - my sister and I were having a cigarette (years ago, I quit!) out behind the autograph area and Corey Haim and Corey Feldman came out for a quick smoke break. Was just the four of us chatting for about 5 mins (I think they approached us because they needed a light?), we played it totally cool and after they went back inside my sister and I freaked out. Before the days of cell phones so we didn't get any photos Was walking the floor and couldn't figure out why everyone was staring at me. Turns out Jack Black was walking behind me, so everyone was staring at him, not me. Really gave me the sense of what it would be like to be famous for a minute. Someone asked Jack what he had bought (he was holding a bag) and he got all excited and said "check this out, it's really cool!" and pulled out whatever it was so the fan could see what he bought. I hear a lot of celebs dress in costume so they can walk the floor without being bothered. I've also seen some really awesome fan outfits that totally look like could be in a real movie. One guy always dresses up like Silent Bob and just leans up against the wall. When you say "Hi Bob!" he just nods at you Got his photo one year, I'll share.

    I was surprised no one was talking about age being an issue with Halle Berry being cast. I mean, isn't Little Mermaid suppose to be a teenager? Then I thought well maybe this isn't a remake but what happens after she and the prince get divorced. Only figured out I had the wrong actress when I finally saw a photo of Halle Bailey with the headline. This is what happens when I only read the headline and skip over stories that don't interest me much

    I'm working on renewing my "professional" status with Comic-Con, hence the update to the forum name.

    I did one of Nicholas Brendon's meet & greets and visited some of the Buffy filming sites up in LA back in January. Was about 20 of us - yes, my sister and I went . Was really fun, Nicholas is very interactive with everyone and I found it really funny to hear Xander drop so many F bombs I will say, he totally reminds me of Bipolar manic but he was very nice. He made it his mission to remember everyone's names and make sure we all had fun and get as many photos as we wanted. He did mention several times he does not like Nathan Fillion because he stole all the girls from him.

    Here are some photos of "the floor" so you can see how big and crazy it is. You'll never see everything. Some of the toys are hilarious!

    My family and I are in Italy for vacation ( ie 12 hour marches around the hottest heatwave in forever). We were in Lake Como and my kids were nuts to try to see the Obamas and the Clooneys. No luck but we sure would have been excited! The townspeople were excited about Obama being there.

    Anyone else watching this? Love this show. Just realized that Nicole Kidman and Lenny Kravitz use to date. Now Kidman is doing a TV show with his daughter!

    My friend still works Sundance Festival every year. She spends all her free time trying to see as many movies as possible. She loves it, but says the celeb side of it has gotten really ugly with very entitled people.

    I remember a couple years ago, a celeb I follow on twitter mentioned dressing up and going and to see if you could find him. (nope, no memory of who it was ;-) My parents lived in Park City UT in the late 80s (then divorced, dad was in and out of Park City through the early aughts and mom lived in Salt Lake until the late 90s) I went to grad school in Salt Lake and lived with mom in the mid-90s. And went to Sundance. Back when it was truly indy, and locals got discounted movie tickets! Some fun celeb-spotting as well! [my two faves are Bob Redford, OF COURSE, and Dana Delaney....] But you could see super famous people skiing every year too. One year (in the late 80s) I was behind the unfucking believably hot Blair Underwood in line to pay at the cafeteria. Holy cow was he hot. Saw Ron Howard all the time. In retrospect, likely Bryce Dallas Howard as well because they skied as a family ;-) Fun times. I don't see anyone famous now that I live in rural NC ;-)

    A new co-worker mentioned she had a trip to Joanne fabric over the weekend so I asked her if she was working on a project - yes - her ComicCon costume! She described it (a video game character I'm completely unfamiliar with, mainly because I know NOTHING about video games at all) but it sounds so cool. I love to see the photos & videos. I have other friends who live in San Diego and go most years -now with their 4 yr old daughter, and she gets to pick the family costumes. Papa, the graphic designer, creates most of the costumes. But I think Dad is pretty handy as well - there have been some great photos!

    Chloe & Halle Bailey sang America the Beautiful at the start of Super Bowl 2019. That should end any questions about her voice. It is not surprising that Disney selected Halle. She and her sister are on "Grown-ish" the "black-ish" spinoff that airs on Disney's Freeform .

    My 17 year old Daughter who makes me go with her to visit “her Princess” Ariel EVERY DANG TIME we go to WDW - is excited. She says she has a killer voice. I think Halle’s face and eye shape match Ariel to a T. My 19 year old said if they can pull off a black Cinderella with an Asian Prince Charming whose dad is white and mom is black (my girls loved this movie!), A black Ariel is not a stretch. Needless to say they are unimpressed with the arguments of those oppose to Halle. I am more interested in Live Action underwater. This will be fun to pull off.

    I think it is just the cut of the dress. When I zoom in they look to be the same. Especially in the side boob area 😂

    I think the majority of the rumors are either Enty OR Blind Gossip (or both) -- but the two of them often seem to share the same fanfiction sites sources, so who knows

    Agreed that Madonna was very awkward - I think she just doesn't like doing interviews because she is guarded. But as you said, this is Graham and he always makes sure his guest are comfortable. And he does get the big names on his couch that rival Madonna in terms of fame. However, I'm guessing Madonna did not know his format or she would never have worn what she did! Why would you wear that to a sit-down interview?? And she didn't have any cute stories ready to tell like other celebs do. She was dressed to perform, not talk! I feel like Madonna thought this was just another dumb interview to promote her new album and didn't realize Graham is different. Go Graham! In terms of my mother thinking Madonna was on drugs, she thinks everyone is on drugs or drunk that can't hold a conversation. Funny considering she never caught me in my college years

    Madonna on Graham Norton last week. Even the fabulous Graham (AND super guest Ian McCellan!) couldn't make Madonna a good guest. She's....very awkward! Not least her too tight corset pushing her boobs out into public.....

    R. Kelly Arrested on Child Porn, Sex Trafficking Charges ... New Indictment for Racketeering TMZ 7/12/2019 9:10 AM PT Exclusive Details Getty 9:10 AM PT -- Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn want to make sure Kelly remains behind bars until trial. In a letter to a federal judge, they say Kelly is a significant flight risk ... and his decades-long criminal history make it clear he's a danger to the community. They also fear he will obstruct justice and "threaten and intimidate potential witnesses." Kelly's scheduled to have a bail hearing next week. 8:26 AM PT -- R. Kelly's spokesperson Darrell Johnson held a news conference Friday morning in Atlanta and seconds after he began ... the parents of Joycelyn Savage, one of Kelly's alleged victims, pounced. Her father demanded to know where Joycelyn is right now. WHERE'S MY DAUGHTER?! FOX 5 The Savages have been extremely vocal for 2 years, accusing Kelly of holding their daughter against her will ... a claim the federal indictments, at least, totally support. 7:16 AM PT -- TMZ just obtained the 5-count federal indictment out of the Eastern District of NY and they include racketeering and several violations of the Mann Act and allegations of forced labor. According to the indictment ... Kelly and others engaged in a scheme to coerce minors to participate in sexually explicit acts on camera. The feds say the purpose of the scheme was to "promote R. Kelly's music and the R. Kelly brand and to recruit women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity with Kelly." In the docs, federal prosecutors say, "Kelly and his crew traveled throughout the United States and abroad to recruit these women and girls" The new federal indictment seems to validate claims of parents who say their children were essentially held hostage. The indictment says the women and girls "were not permitted to leave their room without receiving permission from Kelly, including to eat or go to the bathroom." They were also prohibited from looking at other men and to keep their heads down and call him "Daddy." The feds also say Kelly made "threats of force and physically restrained the women" to obtain their labor and services. In at least one of the cases, he allegedly took a minor to California and committed rape, abduction, carnal abuse of a child and seduction. Kelly also allegedly exposed at least one minor victim to an infectious venereal disease. Violations of the Mann Act, which prohibits the transportation of anyone across state lines for illicit sexual purposes, constitute 4 of the 5 counts against Kelly. R. Kelly was arrested Thursday night for multiple federal sex crimes in 2 different states. Kelly was arrested Thursday in Chicago on charges contained in a 13-count indictment returned in the Northern District of Illinois. The U.S. Attorney's Office of the Northern District says the indictment includes charges of child porn, enticement of a minor and obstruction of justice. He was arrested in Chicago while walking his dog. Various law enforcement officials assisted in the arrest, including Homeland Security and Chicago Police. But, that's not all. There's a second federal indictment out of Brooklyn, where Kelly is reportedly charged with various crimes, including sex trafficking. That indictment is expected to be unveiled Friday. The singer will be arraigned in Illinois and then taken to New York where he will face a judge in that case. R. Kelly was in court in Chicago in June on new state charges, where he pled not guilty to 11 felonies related to sexual assault and various abuse in Illinois. The Cook County State's Attorney's Office charged him with 5 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, 4 counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault and 2 counts of criminal sexual assault. In those legal docs, Kelly is accused of forcing contact between his penis and the alleged victim's mouth and committing an act of sexual penetration on a victim listed only as "J.P." The alleged incident occurred in January 2010, when the victim was under the age of 18. Originally Published - 7/11 8:41 PM PT

ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 06/23 **#8** As I suspected she would, this A list mostly movie actress acquired another of her special visas she is able to get because of her unique position to bring in two teens from a foreign country for some of her offspring to have sex with for a few weeks before she ships them back or off to friends.
