I had a great time at Comic-con this year. Even though we didn’t stay for the entire thing, I still managed to see and do quite a bit. I spent more than I should have on things I didn’t really need, but hey, who cares? My only regret is not going to the free Linkin Park concert on Thursday night. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time and I’ve never actually seen them live. That same night I had won an invite to the IGN Sin City 2 party, which was cool, but I was totally out of place. Because I was staying with a friend that lives a few miles away from the convention center, I didn’t have an opportunity to clean up or change before the party. I felt a bit ridiculous around a bunch of people that were dressed for the occasion, while I was in shorts and a t-shirt and lugging around a backpack. Live and learn, I guess. Next year I’ll keep some nice clothes in the car (if I can’t score a place downtown, that is).

On Friday, I waited a few hours to get a free Game of Thrones tattoo, courtesy of HBO. I’m pretty happy with this decision. It’s a badass design and I am already planning to have an entire piece done around it. Later that evening, I went to see the San Diego Symphony perform the music of Danny Elfman from the films of Tim Burton. It was an amazing concert. I love Danny Elfman’s music. Much like John Williams’ music in Steven Spielberg’s movies, Elfman’s music is instantly recognizable and a perfect fit for Burton’s films.
