[0:45] The days of dragging come on the podcast get sleepy half way through and lee is still on vacation probably sipping some might is by the,
up my eyes.
Anyway so join me tonight or two of the folks at the fine loonies over there at need coffee.com first we have tuffley tuffley how you doing,
I'm I'm fine I think I'm used to like not getting dinner ductions or shows that don't have beginning,

met cooker so it is no which yes i in responsible for the walking dead apocalypse.

[1:40] So before we get into this thank you guys didn't think you're jumping for joy Williams here William how you doing,
i want to go over couple of the the most recent guests that we haven't talked about of course last time we really do guest update the stranger things kids,
been announced and i think during that time i forgot to mention benda quang from dr strange until the war well dr strange really these,
take everybody wants Blu-ray,
unfortunately i was i think if i remember correctly i was in one of the cars they got run into you at the at the very end spoilers by the way and there's some cars the good running do,
and at the end credit scene and supply you were there but then you're gone snap right i was at,
precept it had the sea of ignorance and christine caine and john cam from the librarians last time.

[2:48] I see i haven't seen any of this so these are all niggas to make while then we also me may have mention river did of a palm clementines and if i don't i pronounce maid displayed mantis i think it's actually pronounced smith,
and put me on that Karen Gillian most of the,
most of the remaining living folks no actually was Karen Gillian Karen Gillian.

[3:46] To wong sorry michael rosenbaum from smallville and justice league the tv series.

Form the of course was on smallville you played bill clark and somebody else please it been and the.
He's awesome Lucifer apparently and I'm going to turn about that.
I'm wondering if he'll be back next season was for actually says there is a next season on netflix right yeah.
I don't want to shows show any good.

[4:30] I saw the first couple of episodes I think which did if I had more time which I don't.
Totally making a guilty pleasure watching the reason is and is not a spoiler cuz he does this all the time.
But basically when you have a crime procedural show where one of the people is like a psychic or telepathic can like fire is with their mind whatever it is they have to hide.
How their ability help them solve the crime rate that's the whole,
the whole thing of the series is tried to keep that hidden he didn't give a damn at all he'll just walk up and say yes I am I am Lucifer and I I'm going to,
originally ruler as hell how are you he doesn't care who knows most people don't believe him obviously but the fact that he doesn't care that you know or not I find relentlessly hilarious.
SLA most people say that that's very true.

[5:36] Last time I was there I had three people introduce themselves that way and then asked me for $5 for taking picture with him,
was it just $5 man they gave you a discount also had a couple of start Star Trek universe guests Ethan Phillips Robert Duncan McNeill,

[9:09] Okay,

pays for things to happen so obviously it's.
Add it six paid to the beach since then it's unloaded yeah ww under your first time,

[9:47] I was i just started i just ready for i been ready with,

Can hook me up with wedge and then I started doing stuff I need coffee I think I found my first one was 2004 I think that's alright.
So i have no longer memory malaysia also he thought he was a dragon con ed ninety three so you may not be the best judge,
sushi was is over now it's one of those weird time traveler photos apparently that i have with tom flea in the eighty ninety five one lol,
what were you in the meeting with the with the Russian officials anyway.

[10:34] Will six seven stickers eight sidetracked myself corky park nigger keeper yeah so so since m one when did you actually start guessing and or moderating panels the rumor,
no your first panel as you ever did,
no I know my first panel was it was it was the year that Neil Gaiman came to the Khan and he was supposed to do a media panel and,
was not able to make it,
and i walked in and the guy was in charge basically yelled we just get up here and i basically did the panel but no it was that was,
that was ninety eight because i had just interviewed neil at world horror con a few months previous and so i had.
Enough material about him to basically do the panel as a that was the first time,
I had meant to be on a panel or moderate a panel but I was drafted into it and.
That's how it started the first one's always free.

[11:48] And because is drying and all the rest of your freeze will be uk it know they know i mean yes they make me pay i pay every time.
Regina let me know if that was correct what about you what was your first family member,
which is which if you ever been to any of our paddles is kind of an odd christening for anyone really but but there you go I believe it was a make the bad man stop.
No you guys do you guys cuz I'm on there too but you guys do
and lease track traditionally and,
it's a very bit the beginning of the pond the pond at the beginning of the kind at the end of the con what what exactly is make the bad man stop.
Make the bad man stop is,
basically where we take questions from the audience which we.
People to ask his questions otherwise we'll just ramble of the place um about up coming film and television projects that.

[13:14] Weather it's marvel or dc pretty,
oh we talk about and some things that aren't,
famously we 4 years were there telling people that there was a Super Soakers movie in development.
And people scoffed at us,
and then the battleship movie came out and we said see see everything everything is going to be turned into a movie,
and then a television show and probably a Broadway musical and then they'll make a movie out of the Broadway musical so.
Pretty much i could tell anyone listings podcast think of the,
most cherished cartoon television show breakfast cereal from your childhood I promise you someone owns the rights and they're working on it right now and increasingly it seems more more like it's dizzy that owns the rights,
yes I am sweet actually the answer is yes wait let me see if I can get upset about that.
I can't either seeing as they seem to let their,
properties just do with that the properties that you can acquire and let them do what they're going to do and leave them alone at least right now.

[14:37] Just give them the D what he called the financial backing to,
and the,
that's it we had the discussion of weather that would make,
Scully a princess or not.
I know this now cuz billion points out no because he's not royalty correct that of your feeling or animated well.
That is true i can having seen the reminder what's that film about her but she's not animated and she's still to no right from the start since princes lab has been animated.
That make or does the princess sb by primarily in an animated disney movie.

[15:29] Me and ma dismally according to claim that a courting to the the resources done with cheese on probably excessive amounts of research to much research yet very different people's opinions and things like that was a hookah.
So what's up what panels are you going to be on this year at least tentatively scheduled to be on this year.

[15:50] Doctor Who new series of curious because you know it's going to be warm up,
I'm like what you expect,
from siri there's a new series is even started yet room where we store yeah it's good air probably after drying con man and we know there's gonna be chris especially just adds,
white lots of lots of interesting exciting new stuff be getting good to happen again.
Which is nice so and also you know nothing major we major lee importance is happening on who anyway nothing we haven't,
we want to talk about yeah there's there's nothing international for the season so yeah not a exciting saturday and now,
one thing that we've about driving and it's not just you know it's not your genre it's it's where we everything in it in a pot,
and I got a couple of times that I do about music,
which is pretty cool and one of them to be doing is a panel about the beatles white album,
and Yellow Submarine both of which turned 50 this year.

[17:07] Ha right which has a fifty percent chance of more people liking me because we're not doing a magical mystery tour panel which better offer not doing that i disagree lol.
There's a better movie coming.

[17:27] Set you that's why we're not doing that hell.
I want to try something a little newer joint cuz i usually do a re pop panel which is about british music usually current version is,
dollar try something new this year gonna try some sort of some sort of two handed sword of panel game show beast that we're gonna try sell that sounds that sounds fun so were working on that,
so that and probably a couple more surprises that I'm not aware of yet but I will know soon.
And we'd you're on fair number of,
you might already for Andrew panels plus you also Orchestra a couple of big events correct,
yes i i don't know if working street is the right verb but will go with that because i'm too tired to think of an appropriate lesser synonym
not enough Dion nor harmonies for it to be in the Jeff Lynne sense although I do.

[18:37] But I think I would I would absolutely that's what we need we need Jeff Lynne as a guest of DragonCon cuz I mean think about it there's a UFO involved absolutely I'm just saying and,
we can do is there to do panel that's why i only finally well that's here.
So now we're doing first ball were doing.
This again our improvisational,
problem solving game john you are a long time participant in this madness,
have an excellent job of being broken into your composite Adams by Mad Men last year we have,
that he who down my privilege sufficiently yes sell that.

[19:31] So repressed memories that you'll.

[19:36] Basically that's that was Friday last year there's no telling where it'll end up cuz they have they punted around.
But generally that's over in the Westin I believe I think it wasn't you wouldn't last year last year was in,
using two to two two to height i think this is okay i the,
these fifteen connor hotels straight i just hair fall on third and one hotel in and in another that's that's a questionable they
wow that's what we should do sometime you were traveling panel just take the entire audience I just walk over to somebody else
no that is that that's where we need to second line to basically start a parade.

[20:29] From one panel to another that would be sick but also we're doing the bunny coffee Fun Fest,
again where we give out we play games with the audience and and ourselves get give them what we do that on occasion but usually backstage and we give you all these chances to win fabulous prizes.
Or at least whatever we can afford for that we have lying around at the time it's generally pretty insane and people seem to enjoy themselves especially later in the evening when.

[21:08] Guess some people have been drinking I don't know I don't think that's kind of thing goes on a Dragon Con I have no idea.
That they may be thrown.

[21:21] Katie is generally thrown yes so if you if you have a sensitive skull that would be dented by candy of some kind impacting it,
then please wear a hard hat or at least you know cover yourself with your arms can I suggest just orange peanuts this year just orange peanuts.

[21:46] Circus peanuts the yes oh my God,
in the city city run for while and no one no one wants to eat them and they lie on the floor and ground into the carpet you have not thought this through john,
not think that's exactly what i about the ripple all those appalling pass,
lord circus peanuts peanuts and candy colored and cap and the offer and sweethearts oh no,
no we do not give out that stuff. I will tell you again if anything we would we would do a game like we did years ago in which the game was don't win this Olsen twins DVD.
And whoever was the last person you know where was can in last one the olsen twins dvd.

[22:44] And leave those rocks actually one that as and then and then we were like was she sick last letter join up now she tried to in the rain.
Oh yes he went for the old twins dvd because that's right she's very contrary and,
but that is part of our recruitment ceremonies it's like well I got a wife that way yes you did,
she did and we invited the olsen twins to your wedding but baby baby rsvp know how do they work there.
Oh God will John Oliver's to believe me believe there's only one anyway.
They could have been there just one of them would have been there so do you guys have any like
even going to drink on for a long time to have any tips where's your what's your way if you tell him i was attending would be the number one thing for the first time what would be the number one thing that you tell them to to do.

[23:41] Besides go to all your panels.
Don't walk if you don't have to.
Turn up that's a good point preserve preserve your energy i would also say give yourself plenty of time to get places.
Cuz there are too many people.
I don't want to sound like fanos here but car to another awesome thing to do that's a no show up in a panel just snapping in half people have to leave.
When will when it about to many people at the public or is there no.
Oh good lord Sir Paul McCartney shows up and it's not the fingers.
What dose it ever causing to many problems the accident if it's to be believed there's not enough love to go around.

[24:50] Well but that doesn't like what is a calm really is the land of confusion there are freaky looking puppets for having to,
what's good for you you cant remember i am deathly for you looking but not,
keep bear in mind that sometimes going outside despite the fact that.
Whatever the weather whatever the weather is leading up to the con.
It's probably going to be nice and cool and Breezy and make you think that it's going to be you know a nice,
weather weekend don't be fooled be prepared for something,
torrential rain or hot baking sun or both I mean it's due to heavy sunspot activity the generally happens every Labor Day in Atlanta.
It is gonna be crazy so be prepared to leave the hotels and go down the sidewalk and i would say specially if you gonna be on peachtree street give yourself plenty of time as i have never.
A guy i've been in york many times i've never been in sidewalk gridlock before like i have a drug so.

[26:11] Do you have any do you guys have any Traditions that you that you do it a drink on like is there is a night that you go out for for dinner and you go to a specific place for dinner,
when trying to people information when stock you at now i have a tradition where every monday night,
I go home and then sleep for about 36 hours and then wake up and usually couple times I'll wake up in the night,
screaming like oh my God where the prizes and then I realize it's over and then I just kind of roll over and go back to sleep,
that's that's a big tradition hmm yeah i think that's my number one drunk on tradition right you totally.
Are there's a chicken place that set at peachtree center is a very good yeah which we lay to to at least once,
and I I take Tuesday off so.

[27:13] This is a that's probably wise on everyone take tuesday off now do tough liam not sure if you're aware but then me maybe you are as you're talking with madmen and and rost
last episode Peachtree Center is currently under renovation and,
wasn't as i've seen a lot of is he and cd is at the to say the least the.
Um scarce.
And so you're checking please might be impact more than it usually is sensible have a lighted because its so yeah it's really close today so yeah that.
Is he that dumb idea where the things you yellow because everyone's going like forties early now that may be one of the things and doing to be doing tuesday or wednesday friday.

[28:09] Do you guys ever go off off site to for dinner or anything that sometimes from,
Yeah couple years ago crack work was actually playing on the third day and I think I think we tried to go to that or or or a film show or something I remember.
That was a couple years ago but yeah sometimes if there's something else going on you can sneak off.

[28:40] Yeah I know that the what is it the anklet that they use to track your whereabouts you can fool it for a little while.
Yeah as long as there's nothing on the other side of your badge that says you have to be somewhere you're usually okay right.
