After a nice breakfast at the Carlton President in Utrecht, Liv & I packed our stuff and took the bus to the Jaarbeurs again! We were excited for day 2. Day 1 of Dutch Comic Con was amazing. And for day 2, we were ambitious too! So, let's have a look at how our day turned out!
It was 5 A.M. My alarm went off. OOOOOOOH, why is 5 AM that early?? Why do they always have to work on the tracks when there's Dutch Comic Con?? I don't like getting up early. Especially that early. But, if there's a reason to get up in the middle of the night, well then let it be Dutch Comic Con! So I old myself to get up and be happy. Today was a comic con day!! I got on the train on 6:09 AM. Oh yes it was early! My alarm went off at 5.15 A.M. Normally, I would call that the middle of the night (especially in the weekends) and hit snooze. But not in a Comic Con weekend! I jumped out of bed...well maybe I'm exaggerating...I crawled out of bed and got myself ready. At 6 A.M. I was on my bike and Carola and I met in Sittard at 6.40 A.M. We arrived in Utrecht around 9.15. We were psyched!!!! We had been talking about Comic Con the whole trip and we were so ready for the weekend.
When I opened Netflix, the trailer of a new series caught my eye. A Netflix original tarring Paul Rudd. It was the series "Living With Yourself". So I started watching! Today I will discus my thoughts on the series.
If you are reading this, you probably also read part one and part two of this series (if not...you should!). I was actually not expecting to write another one of these for Dutch Comic Con Winter Edition 2019, because the film and Tv guest-list was finalized with Chandler Riggs a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, however, there has been a last minute cancellation. Due to work obligations "Once Upon a Time" fan favorite Colin O'Donoghue had to cancel. And of course we think that is a big shame. But not long after the cancellation Dutch Comic Con came with a worthy substitution for the man who plays Hook in "Once Upon a Time". Let's start howling, because none other than Tyler Posey is coming to Utrecht this weekend. Tyler is mostly known for his role as Scott McCall in "Teen Wolf". We love "Teen Wolf" and in the past we have been to Wolfcon (a "Teen Wolf" convention) multiple times, but we never got the chance to meet the man behind the main character of the show. So, thank you Dutch Comic Con! In this article we will tell you a bit ore about Tyler Posey.......ARH-WHOOOOOOOOOOO!
Last year, I already wrote a series talk about Pose. At that moment, season 1 was out on Netflix and I thought it was great, Now, Netflix gave me a notification: Season 2 of Pose was available. That also means it's time to talk again about Pose! Where season 1 took place in 1987 and 1988, season 2 kicks off in 1990. The ballroom culture gets more mainstream because of for example Madonna's song Vogue. Not everyone is happy about that. The series also follows how some of the characters live with being are HIV- positive or are living with AIDS.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame.... Who hasn't heard of it? When I think of Hollywood.. I think of the Walk of Fame. I've seen so many videos and photos of celebrities getting a star there or getting hand and footprints at the Walk of Fame. Something I really wanted to see one day! Before actually going to Hollywood, I did some research. And boy, that put me with both feet on the ground again. According to what I read, there was nothing magical, even nothing special anymore about the Walk of Fame. It's just a street with lots of tourists and lots of homeless people. Basically the message was: Don't get your hopes up. Don't be too enthusiastic. It's just a street. Well.. that's a way to kill the excitement. Nevertheless, I adjusted my expectations. Regular Hollywood street, here we come!
New month, new movies. As many of you might know, we went to Los Angeles in October. This meant a lot of movie related activities. And what I first wrote in this intro was that because of that I didn't watch a lot of movies. Then I started this writing this article. And I realized: I've seen a lot of movies in October! So I take it back. October was great film month :).
During Weekend of Hell, we talked with the organizers of Cos Con. Cos Con? Yep! We learned more about the event during Weekend of hell and we LOVE it. So we knew we had to tell you all about it. So... are you ready to hear everything about Cos Con? Here we go! The Cos Con 2020 is a benefit Cosplay Convention with a contest and takes place in the city hall Rheinberg (Germany) on January 19th, 2020. "Die FILM Seite" organizes the Cos Con and raises money in favor of the children´s hospice "Sternenboot Düsseldorf". As cosplayers, the participants slip into familiar characters from the fields of film, comic, video game, anime or manga. They don't only look like them with very elaborate costumes, but they also behave like the character!
Before we went to Los Angeles, Universal Studios Hollywood was one of the things high up on our list. We knew we wanted to go! A couple of years ago (2014), I went to Florida and in Orlando, I already visited Universal Studios Orlando. Both the 'regular' Universal Studios Orlando park and the Halloween Horror Nights. I totally loved it there and couldn't wait to see what's the same and different in Hollywood.
As you may know by now: Conmose went Hollywood and we had lots of fun. During our trip to the City of Angels, one movie (and one actor in it in particular) played an essential role. I'm talking about the long awaited "Zombieland: Double Tap", which was set to release during the last few days of our vacation. The actor I am talking about is the amazing Woody Harrelson. Curious? Sit back, relax and let me tell you about how Woody got a special place in our hearts during our LA Trip!
