At first they looked like stick figure shaped balloons flying over comic con, but in reality they're soap bubbles. Which makes them even cooler since that means a slower death for the dolphins.


I need a price quote for a flogo of a snookit. Now that comic con is over, 3 days until season 2 of Jersey Shore...

He'd better fly in the final season

Although I missed out on seeing Bo Duke in the flesh (and Superman as well), not sure it would've been worth camping out overnight just to hear about only the possibility of Superman flying (yawn). I hope Supergirl kicks his ass again.

1 Arrested in Scuffle at Comic Con in San Diego

SAN DIEGO-- A man is under arrest for assault with a deadly weapon after getting in a fight with a friend at Comic-Con, according to police.

Around 4:00 p.m., two adult males attending the convention got into a scuffle shortly after a panel in Hall H of the convention center.

The two men got into an argument about one sitting too close to the other, Stafford said, "Two friends had an argument and one guy ended up going to the hospital with a scratch near his eye.''

Rumors circulating the internet of a fan stabbing another attendee in the eye over coveted seats, and of a victim clad in a " Harry Potter T-shirt soaked in blood," are inaccurate, according to authorities.

(Probably b/c the harry potter costume wearers waited since 0500 only to learn that no one from the movie cast showed up.)

COMIC-CON 2010: 'Harry Potter' fans 'disappointed' by Warner Bros. panel

On Saturday, the boy who lived became the boy who did not show up.

While Warner Bros. did not commit to appearances by cast members for its Hall H presentation of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the studio teased fans in its description of the event, which promised “a program created just for Comic-Con fans... Don’t miss it!”

That was enough to draw thousands of Potter enthusiasts, some of whom camped out overnight or arrived before dawn to secure their places in line. Some were even hoping for a glimpse of Daniel Radcliffe, who, of course, plays the title character.

The program started well enough with footage from the double-feature conclusion of the series, the first installment to be released in November, the second next in July.

After the brief trailer, actor Tom Felton walked onstage to thunderous applause. Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy throughout the eight-movie series, said the experience of starring in the franchise was “better than any sentence I can conjure up. It’s bizarre to think I started when I was 12.”

When the 10-minute interview was over -- and no other cast members turned up -- the audience that had packed the 6,500-seat hall appeared to collectively deflate.

“Overall, it was disappointing,” said Demi Boyd, an 18-year-old from Oceanside, Calif., who had been waiting since 5 a.m., dressed as Professor Trelawney, a character played by Emma Thompson in the films.

Skelanimals are adorable little animals who have met an untimely end-mostly due to their own reckless and ill-advised behavior.

Continuation of the Fringe bag fail

But at least I got a "beer makes my clothes fall off" tshirt

I think that's me with the "Hub" bag

I waited in line forever to get that thing. Actually never mind, that's me in my tin man outfit, after seeing the line for the Green Lantern/Harry Potter/Sucker Punch panel snake around the block towards the harbor. No panels today, only chased shiny objects.

Did You See These Nuts At Comic Con?

Women who kick ass

Maybe if they were in a bigger room we would've gotten into the panel. But thankfully we passed the 1.5 hours meeting people who work in "the industry" then rightfully bailed before seeing a cardboard Alexander Skarsgard. I should've kicked someone's ass.

Comic-Con: EW's Women Who Kick Ass panel (You'll never guess who can deadlift 300 pounds)

– Malone revealed that she never had to pass any athletic tests before landing the incredibly stunt-heavy role of Rocket in Zack Snyder’s movie Sucker Punch (out March 2011). “What if I had flat feet?” Malone joked. “What if my heart could only go so fast?” After winning the part, however, Malone did have to partake in extensive training with a posse of martial artists, SEAL officers, and weapons experts. “We’d go out into the fields of Los Angeles and shoot all sorts of guns!” Malone said. But what was her proudest physical achievement from the film? Deadlifting 300 pounds. “Doing dead lifts is like being on cloud nine for me,” Malone said with absolute seriousness. “I really get into deadlifts. It’s like a drug.” The other panelists stared at Malone, their faces frozen with awed disbelief.

-And Torv pointed out Fringe‘s unique gender-role reversal. “Olivia was the man,” Torv said. “She was off doing the tough stuff, while the boys did all the talking in the kitchen.”

– Each actress was asked about the wildest stunt they’ve ever had to perform, and Malone’s response was priceless. The actress proceeded to thoroughly describe an elaborate stunt from Sucker Punch where she was required to hang upside down — 30 feet above the floor — and somehow manage to shoot and reload a submachine gun. “The only other person I know who’s gone upside down and unloaded an UMP is Ice Cube,” Malone joked. Mitchell, upon realizing that she could never top Malone’s answer, simply remarked, “I dangled in wells” — a Lost reference that the Comic-Con audience sweetly cheered

"Juliette" looks pretty good for someone born in 1970, especially considering that Anna Torv is 32, 4 years older than when Elizabeth Mitchell made Gia.

Get lei'd at comic con

Probably the best schwag so far since I failed again at getting that damn Fringe bag. Thank God Vampire Diaries are so much cooler - tweens are following me like I'm the pied piper. The show doesn't look too bad either, although clearly Jin and Boomer are the big draw. The Orient express is trendy. I knew world domination was inevitable.

My goddaughter is on the right track...

11:00 AM-1:00 PM: Comic-Con How-To Session: Costuming with Sabrina Belly Dancer. From the official schedule: “Sabrina will show how to create a costume bra top for hall costumes or a masquerade performance.” In saying that, it has practically guaranteed that all the creepy raincoat dudes will come out of the woodwork for this one.

Post comic con food coma

Well worth sustaining on special k bars for most of the day. Maybe Oxygen's More to Love will have a booth tomorrow and I can find some kindred spirits.

Cheerleading is not a sport, rules judge: Quinnipiac University can't swap volleyball for pom-poms

Under Title IX, an activity can be considered a sport if it meets certain criteria, namely that it has coaches, practices, competitions during a defined season, a governing organization, and competition as its primary goal — not just the support of other athletic teams, reports The Associated Press.

Hope kevin smith makes it on the plane, unless he's my competition to be the 7th jolie pitt

Comic-Con: 'Potter,' 'Green Hornet,' Brangelina?

Kevin Smith says Comic-Con for him is, "Muslims like to go to kneel, what is it, three times a day toward Mecca and whatnot. I do the same thing for San Diego and that massive building... It's a real good source of kind of State of the Union for me, because I dwell in the world of pop culture."

"the sharks won’t eat you if you don’t step on them."

Recent N.J. shark sightings may be due to warm waters, abundance of fish

Shark sightings closed New Jersey beaches for the second day in a row Thursday, causing more curiosity than panic among bathers, lifeguards said.

"Yes, there are really sharks out there," Seaside Park lifeguard C.J. Ratshin, 21, wearily told the one of the "tons of people coming up and asking if the sharks will eat them."

Murderworld Safer Than Action Park...Go Figure

"Other attractions (and their attendant injuries) include a rollercoaster that leads directly into the mouth of a gigantic mechanical fire-breathing dragon (severe burns, contusions), a Ferris wheel lined with titanium spikes (lacerations), and the park's latest addition, the Island of Misadventure, a miniaturized scale model of Manhattan populated by robotic versions of super-heroes patrons can use to simulate titanic battles of good vs. evil (pretty much instant death if the difficulty level is set at 2 or above)."

I finally listened to Picture Book, the 6 CD set from The Kinks.

Early rarities, but mainly for Davies fans who want a chronological compliation of his work.

Here's the review from
