It means no one's doing lines and if you didn't get picked in the exclusive lottery, you're poo poo outta luck for purchasing.

I'm at Conan and it's the first year I'm not at orchestra level. I'm dying up here in the balcony. gently caress k this theater and it's awful AC "solutions."

Their fancy new Hall H wristband system broke so they were all a hour late handing them out. Good times.

I got none of the exclusives I was shooting for in the portal but somehow ended up with a Lego one even though I didn't sign up for it?

I'm definitely seeing less panels I'm interested in this year. Lots of fan panels and even a couple bitcoin panels of all things.

I'm honestly kinda speechless how low profile comic con is this year

How does the wristband system work again this year? Has it all been handed out already and no more chances day of?

I'm seeing a listing for this RZA panel in hall h Saturday which sounds dope and nothing else on Saturday save the women who kick rear end seems like a doorbuster like peak comic con. Wondering if there's a feasible chance of checking it out and here I am an idiot sinner in hell whose soul is begging for eternal torment

Apparently the wristband system wasn't working last night and everyone had to wait over an hour.

Am I crazy or did They separate the lines by day too

Is their wristbands given out everyday day up tot he day or are they all out. If I consider the thing on Saturday is there still an opportunity to get one tomorrow or are they all passed out

Unless there's a bunch of poo poo that wasn't put up last night, the tech pavilion this year is really sad. I love the tech pavilion. They usually have some great stuff and last year the two 360 domes they had were tight as gently caress.

This year, it's super vacant in terms of booths but there's not enough space between them for me to realistically think they're adding many more things (if any). Plus I found at least three of the booths were either bitcoin or crypto related and that just made me feel dirty.

Yeah, what they're doing now is they give you the wristband and then scan your badge. I assume they're going to scan it again going into the Hall to verify you waited in line. Last night their poo poo for scanning broke so wristbands came out a hour late.

So, I'm a huge fan of having the road in front of con closed and the smaller panels have been pretty good for me. Wound up getting a band for the Stargate thing tonight on the Midway. Dunno if something is getting premeired or what?

Also what's the electronic Hall H thing?

Team Coco House is straight fresh to death. Super chill atmosphere, bar, food (popcorn) and just nice. Plus if you're one of the first fifty in, you get the previous day's Conan pop.

I'm already having a better time here than anything else at con so far and the show I'm here for hasn't even started.

I am just not motivated to be on the floor anymore after successfully finding one Christmas gift for someone. I donít really care about anything until the Kung Fu Extravaganza at 8pm so i got high, walked to the Marriott and am buying overpriced drinks.

Didnít feel like waiting for the Better Call Saul/ Breaking Bad back-to-back so I spent the day scoping out the local events and sampled some of James T Kirkís Space Bourbon. It tasted a lot like Earth bourbon.

Also, donít go to Sushi 2 for anything other than $5 Crazy Milk / Fight Milk combos of large Sapporo and small unfiltered sake. Whatever they were 2 years ago is now under new management who think adding pico de gallo to a California roll is a good idea.

Follow up on Team Coco House.

The place is still awesome AF but it seems people just signed up for poo poo and didn't actually bother to figure out if it was something they were interested in or not. Kondabolu brothers were both awesome but most of the crowd either signed up with no idea who they were or just wanted free poo poo that the crowd energy was loving dead and heathens didn't even have the decency to laugh at dumb jokes to even try and improve the energy. Still awesome but fuckkkkkkkkk those people. You got your lovely toy, loving leave if you aren't enjoying it you assholes.

I waited less than an hour to get into Better Call Saul. I think the venue cleared after the Dragon Ball Super panel finished.

On the off chance there is someone who got into rick and morty panel and doesn't want heir wristband could I get in on that.

This lottery system is loving bullshit. I imagine they are going to have a half empty house if they are giving it to randos who didnt even have a chance to opt out

There's no way there won't be some kind of standby for that.

Did syfy karaoke yesterday. Sang Don't Stop Believing, got a loving free Bait shirt.

Also, team Coco house either learned from Thursday or something because we did the Final Space table read yesterday and there was alcohol available which I think deffo helped the crowd (though there was a much better mix of people who'd actually heard of the thing they were attending).
