Sick day

First, the boring stuff:
Stayed home due to sneaky, sudden flu attack that started last night.
Went and got meds plus many boxes of tissues. Went home and crashed in bed until about 4pm.
I am feeling loads better, if still clogged up. Even my ears feel stuffed. I should be able to get to work tomorrow, and hopefully not infect the rest of the crew (though I probably got it from one of them last week, as part of the studio seemed affected).

Now, on to the stuff I found out after I woke up.


I knew the Flight booth location (#2329), but I didn't know WHERE exactly we were:
flight comics
Holeeee Frik. O_O
We're right in the middle of the battlefield this year. Right between freakin' Marvel and DC. The traffic is going to be insane!
We're going to need a million eyes around the table.
This year is going to be a challenge.

If you're curious to see the entire floor plan, Davidsdoodle on DA has posted it. To see it bigger, go to the right and click on download.
For those who have never been to SDCC, this is just the main exhibit hall. One floor above are the panel rooms and Hall H, which can hold thousands of people.

If you need to go somewhere fast and you know the table location, do not attempt to walk in the hall! Too much traffic. Just go in the entrance lobby and then dive in to one of the doors nearest the table or location you want to reach.
Do not eat con food- not good. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance plus a Ralph's Grocery store.
Bring water, good shoes.

Last, but not least, http://www.lastairbenderfans.com/ have posted mug shots of the main cast for The Last Airbender.

Aang, you do look like you've woken up from a 100 years of bad sleep inside an iceberg.
That or the police arrested you for illegal airbending.

Bigger pictures got posted so I've updated this post.
Katara looks like she's wearing some sort of ceinture flechee.
OMG...they're Quebecers!! French Canadians in my Avatar, ha ha!

I better get up and move a bit, if I want to be able to sleep tonight.

Nope, they're going for more...norwegian. Or Finland. One of the more nordic european countries. Didn't have a good enough look at the costumes yet to see if they look like Norwegians with Inuit clothes.

A few hearts are expected to plummet. Possibly in scattered showers.
It was on today's forecast.

The important thing is that you get rest, fluids and feel better soon!

The GAH! Moment of this post are those cast shots because wtf?
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 12:20 am (UTC)
Got the rest and the fluids. The getting better will come in a few days.
I don't know where the German site got the cast photos from, how official these are and all, but it looks somewhat legit.

And across from Alex Ross' behemoth booth! Craziness!
I don't really know much about Avatar but i'm quite intrigued by the trailer! I think they look great!
(Is that BAD?!)

Get better soon! And have fun at SD!

Jul. 14th, 2009 12:31 am (UTC)
I KNOOOOOWWWWW!
It is going to be crazy, ouch!
Hope it transforms into good sales for everyone.
ha ha, nothing bad into thinking the actors look good if you're not too familiar with the show. It all depends on people anyway, as it is always weird to see cartoons characters become real.
Hopefully, I'll be 100% better before next week *sneezes as she types*

Hope you get to feeling better quickly!

Cast photos: Glad to see everyone has mastered the "pout".
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 12:32 am (UTC)
Thanks for the good wishes.
Pouting: that's acting basics 101.
I don't know if that's what's best for photos, but if these are not 100% official releases...I guess they are allowed to pout.
Ha ha, I want their versions of the "drivers license pic", with the awkward smiles!!

One must guess that daddy went light on him.
That, or we know how the fire nation has incredible hair growing skills (Zuko, season 2) ;)

Glad to know the books have arrived safely. Awww, no need for thank you art, these books ARE the thank you for your gift art!

Hmm. Still squinting to see the scar. I've been trying not to bash this film but Aang is the only one who looks alright in the role from these photos alone.

That table location is exciting! You're going to see so many awesome and unshowered people.
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 01:13 am (UTC)
Please, no mention of the unshowered! Ha ha! You're making me wish my nose will stay plugged up until after the show is over.

Aaaand strut, pout, put it out! Aang's looks like a mug shot. Yes, officer, it was that kid that destroyed the cabbage cart.

Oh man, they look lame. Terrible.

For some reason Jackson Rathbone always looks like he's in pain. C'mon, lighten up, Sokka! It's better than sparkling in the sun, right? ;)

Have fun at the con, Ruff! Enjoy the insanity of being caught in the middle of the epic battle between DC and Marvel. At least it ought to bring a lot of people to look at your guys' table.
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 01:15 am (UTC)
Ha ha, it does look like Aang's police photo mugshot! XD
For Jackson- yeah, definitely better than sun sparkles!

As for being in the middle of the battle, I don't know if I like being sandwiched like that between the big twos (right now, feeling very much like the mustard in that sandwich)

Ugh, my heart aches at these shots. The only thing I like is Aang's arrow design. *repeatedly bangs head on desk to numb the pain*
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 01:17 am (UTC)
Gives you Advil for your upcoming headaches after all the banging.

I have seen cosplayers do so much better. Yes, even white cosplayers.

*sigh* I wish they were still making those 90 minute animated videos...or the comics at least...
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 02:03 am (UTC)
I'm still trying to keep a positive attitude about it.
I consider the movie as an AU (Alternate Universe), the story retold as so many others have done through their fanfics and fancomics (guilty as charged, ha ha!).

I would absolutely LOVE it if they were doing more Avatar animation or comics. *sigh*

The really, really, really upsetting character spin is the one for Iroh. This is not a movie for fans. It's a movie for the general gritty war-action audience. There's a reason they aren't smiling.
rufftoon
Jul. 14th, 2009 02:05 am (UTC)
I'll be curious to see Iroh.
And Zhao too, of course, ha ha!
Definitely seem to be taking a darker, more serious tone.

A lot has been said about Zuko and his riders of Rohan But now that Sokka and Katara have come out I can say with absolute security that I don't like that vision of the Water Tribes D8

:___(

As I've said above, I consider this movie as an AU- an Alternate Universe version.
Let us just be thankful it did not turn into a totally modern version, with cars and planes.

oh... my.
well, focusing on the positive, Aangs tatoo is killer.

Katara looks like Dawn from Buffy the Vampire Slayer D:

It gave him such a CRICK in the neck!
