The first day of the Nashville Comic Con and Horror Fest at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds was a blast. This was pretty big with over 30,000 square feet of space and all of it being utilized this by no means was a small event. For someone that never ever has been to an event like this it was like being a kid with a sugar lust being able to run through a candy factory. A big surprise to me was the cast of AMC Walking Dead . My son drooled over Addy Miller and Madison Lintz who were pretty much his age from what I could tell. Heh I may have embarrassed him by making a bad joke that they are only interested in men for their brains or something like that. I also may may a comment that they dress like zombie for dates. I can not remember quite what I said. Generally I have that Monty Python type of humor. I think he will forgive me....In time. There was some other great moments at the Comic Con. Among the hidden thrills for me was seeing David Hedison of the classic Sci Fi series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea signing autographs and then rummaging through rows and rows of comics, videos, toys, and what ever else there was . Heh I even got a Godzilla toy from Japan and a Zombie Warning sign to hang on my wife's office door. Helps to warn the kids not to enter a restricted area. Also met some local business owners that have some unusual business. One is the TN Ghostbusters. I guess they go around for special events like the Ghostbusters. They sure had all the toys and garb that look official enough to pass off as the real deal., You can check them out and what they are about at TN-GB.com. One real unusual set up was the Silver Screen Church. From what I can tell it is a real church of sorts that meet and show vintage movies from time to time (bi-monthly)like Harry Potter, Back to the Future, Gremlins, Ghostbusters, Jurassic Park, Jaws and others to as a way to preach the word. On a personal not I am so curious to check that out. I may drop in one of these day to see what they do. Other groups also included the TN paranormal Society. I did not get any pamphlets or cards from them so for now I will leave the web address blank until I can accurately post it. When I tried to look up them I was surprise to have found that there were more of those type of organizations then I anticipated.
I can't wait till tomorrow. If all goes right I will be back and this time I think there will be the Dr Who panel and other guess.Maybe this time I can gets one Q and A with someone . If so I will post it right here again along with more pics or another video slide of the event. But for now here is a quick video slide show I made of the day.
