  1. Yes, you can bring your camera. However, you CANNOT use it to take photos or video of any movie or TV clip that is played on screen, and you will be warned often about this. There are volunteers who will go up and down aisles, looking for people who are taking photos, and they are authorized to take your camera and destroy its contents. Comic-Con has received increasing support from the film and television industries over the past few years, with its audiences often being the first to see film or television footage, and they don't want to jeopardize that by having attendees get bootlegs.
  2. Hi Alice! I noticed the special guests mention, too, but I was so excited about Zack being there, that I didn't even think to consider that the special guests might include FASSY!, Vincent, Rodrigo or Tom. I guess in the back of my mind I thought that Michael was still off filming Town Creek in Romania, though you would know that better than I would since I haven't been at MFO much in the past couple months. (Shame on me!) I'm not going to be there on Thursday, but I will be there Friday, and probably most of Saturday. On Friday, I'm going to set up residence in Hall H. The only thing th
  3. Hi Everyone! Zack Snyder, Frank Miller, Lena Headey & David Wenham will be appearing at Comic-Con on Friday, July 27. Zack will be on a panel from 10am-12:30pm to discuss Watchmen, and then will appear later in the day, 3:15pm-4:45pm, with the others to discuss 300. Here's the link to that day's events: Comic-Con, Friday, July 27th I AM SO THERE!! --Danielle/#99
  4. I officially name that, "The Butler Triangle." It looks like people are going to get "lost" in it, much like its Bermuda cousin, but in a good way. Add that to the map of Gerry's body. (Which I can't find again - can anyone point me to that thread?)
  5. I love how this movie just came out of nowhere. No speculation one minute, then Gerry and his LUPOs boarding a flight to London the next to start filming. I am also happy with the rest of the cast! Tom, Thandie and Ludacris, yay!

    300 DVD Specs

    I am SO not happy that the standard DVD version appears to be the one with the least amount of extra features. It's too early in the Blu Ray vs. HD format wars to know who's going to be the winner, so I'm not going to invest in one of those DVD player formats. I don't believe Blu-Ray or HD DVDs will function well, if at all, in a standard DVD player. If any of you more techno-savvy people know more about that, please let me know. Being a 300 addict (18 viewings), I would have gladly paid more for a third disc with the additional features on the Blu-Ray and HD versions. But, in the
  7. :funnyabove: I laughed so hard when I saw your post! I was going to search and see if I could find the brand of undies after I was done reading the thread! Gutter minds think alike! Thanks for the links!
  8. Susan, I am SO glad that everything worked out well with Phantom Las Vegas, and that all of the GALS got a meet-and-greet, whatever night they went! (What they did was give you the new VIP package for which they charge $250 per person, and you deserved it.) I'm thrilled to hear that Tony was just as wonderful as he was when Lynne, Norma and I met him last month, especially considering how large your group was! He's the best public relations that the show has. I'm looking forward to the photos!
  9. Barb, just pm'd you. Lisa, that's so lovely of you regarding the bracelets! --Danielle :hug99:
  10. Who needs Vegas when you can win something here?! :yippee: Thanks, Barb, and to all who contributed prizes! Congrats to all winners, too!
  11. Happy Sunday to all those here left behind! There is much joy chez #99 because I finally got a King Leonidas action figure! Last night, a friend and I saw 300 at our local drive-in. It was King Leo's first official outing, and he stood fiercely atop the speaker station and watched the movie with us. (Only among GB fans could I admit something like that and be understood!!) We talked to the manager, a history buff who still liked the film very much even though it's not historically accurate, i.e., no body armour and such. Later, when Cindy and I were watching the film and we got the the
  12. Good morning, fellow Virtual Con ladies! *stretches, yawns* What a bunch of lovely posts to awaken to! Irish, I love the stained glass! I've bought a few old English stained glass windows for my apartment, and they look great on the walls. AnnOC, good luck with the web site! *nudge, nudge, nudge* Beachie, you've learned your graphics well! The wallpapers are lovely! Active99, too bad you're not here in SoCal - there's a group that gets together usually once a month to scrapbook and I know that you and your cutie would be welcomed! Barb, thanks again for keeping things up and runni
  13. There are quite a few talented ladies here! Behold my Spartan shield cookie, which combined my obssession with passion for 300 and my food decorating skills (yes, I made the arrows): I brought these to a birthday party attended by GALS/TARTS, as I knew that only they would truly understand.
  14. This is one of my favorites, if not my absolute favorite: It makes me think of a post-wedding reception, right-before-the-honeymoon look. Not that I've ever fantasized about that. I'm just sayin'.
  15. Brilliant Barb, this was a great idea, and thanks for your efforts! Count me in! I'm from the New York City metro area originally, now living in the arse of California, in the Imperial Valley, a desert community about 12 miles north of the US/Mex border and FAR from everything that's fun! Got to go look for my favorite Gerry photo. I'd enter the talent contest, too, but is shopping on eBay a talent?! --Danielle, aka #99 (but not an "Active99")
  16. Thanks for checking in, Alice! I was thinking about those of you who went to see POTO last night, and hoping that everything went well, after what Susan had to go through to reorganize the mess that the producers had made of the group's plans. I am glad that you enjoyed meeting Anthony Crivello, the Phantom. He was fabulous to us when my friend and I met him after we saw POTO in Vegas last month. Keep the updates coming!
  17. They're shooting in Vancouver. Watchmen article I'm going to see Watchmen, Gerry or no Gerry. But my interest is really piqued at what character he'll play. Moonglow is right - even though the Comedian dies (ya know, just saying that, that has to be the part Gerry gets, since his character almost always dies) right at the start of the story, it's still a good-sized part, with the character portrayed in flashbacks. becozy, thanks for the information! I've been watching for Watchmen news.
  18. Great topic - thanks Mel! Really funny contributions from everyone. :funnyabove: I especially love the sign about the "personal holiday," Alice! So true.
  19. I happen to like Keanu Reeves. There's something appealing, cute and mysterious about him. But I do think his talent is limited, and I could NOT picture him as Dr. Manhattan, so if it's true that he's declined the role, I'm not upset about it. Believe it or not, I've never seen Jude Law in a movie, so I can't comment on how I feel about him as an actor. If he tosses back a few milkshakes and does the 300 workout, I think he'd be a great Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias, in terms of appearance. Supposedly, he's a huge fan of Watchmen. If that's true, then I have to hope he'll push himself to do we

    How many times

    I've now seen it 16 times, including seeing it in Las Vegas last weekend, and once in San Diego this week when I went there on business. I don't mind saying that I was a little teary at the end of the San Diego viewing, knowing that that was mostly like the last time I'll see 300 on the big screen. 300 was more than a movie for me in so many ways; it was a comprehensive experience. I followed this movie from the beginning; saw the sneak peak at WonderCon; was introduced to the graphic novel form (and LOVED the 300 graphic novel); met its extremely talented director, whose career I will be fo

    Zodiac Sign

    Proud Scorpio here, November 2nd.
  22. Even worse, did you notice in The Art of 300, that his name was spelled Gerald?!
  23. Susan, I wish I could join you guys!! Here's his IMDB page: Anthony "Tony" Crivello And an article on BroadwayWorld.com, featuring him: Broadway World Article
  24. I've read Watchmen and am having a hard time trying to figure out which part Gerry would have. Someone somewhere mentioned the Comedian...but I don't know. Definitely not Ozymandias (I'd be floored if he got that part), and I don't think Dan Dreiberg, either. Maybe Rorschach? Or...Jon? *thinking of big, blue, bald naked Gerry* Thanks for the news, Barb!
  25. Hi Susan! Which actor will you be meeting? I had the pleasure of meeting Anthony Crivello, who's a Tony Award winner for his performance in Kiss of the Spider Woman, after his performance this past Saturday. I've met quite a few actors at stage doors, and all meetings have been pleasant experiences, but meeting Anthony has been the best. My friend Lynne, and Norma, a friend and co-worker of Lynne's, and I saw the 9pm show this past Saturday night. It was Norma's first time ever seeing POTO on stage. (We made sure she lost her 300 virginity earlier that afternoon, too!) After the sh
