Well Holy Shit!! Guess who's gonna meet The Punisher!!! Hahaaa! :P I'm from Indy and it's taking place (practically in my "used to be"back yard). Now...only question is...can someone get me out of Active Duty for that weekend? Friggin' government only gives me a 300 mile radius to go anywhere and being in NJ---that aint happenin.....hmmm..I wonder? I pulled off getting free weekend passes to the Chicago comic con (in april) by using my military status. LOL Is that wrong? LOL I'll take leave if I have too...just hope I can get tickets.

 

Thanks for the heads up Jen!!!!!

Ok, I'm wondering if anyone can help me out...here's my situation...

 

Now that I'm finally back in Indianapolis (and no longer in NJ) I was so excited to know that I was going to be able to make the convention to meet Tom & Tim. It was literally my dream come true until I was told that I have to go to Iowa the very same weekend for some kind of drill that the Air Force is putting me through. It is a 7 hr drive from Indy to Iowa and I started thinking that I could go on Friday (July 9-the first day of the convention) meet T&T and then hit the road for my Saturday morning drill but then I realized that they probably will only be there on a certain day at a certain time. UGGHHH! So I'm checking out the site and can not for the life of me find out what day and time they are going to be there so I can make sure it fits my unfortunate schedule. And once again...the government screws me over...

 

Tim, if you read this, can ya work it out for me?

 

Someone please tell me they will be there on friday...

I'll chime in until Tim follows up with a more specific answer. Generally speaking Tim and Tom will go for an entire show, so unless there are any unexpected travel challenges, you should be able to see them on Friday.

 

As far as the government thing... whenever I pay for a hotel room at a show I usually try to get the government rate, so there are some advantages. In fact one time the hotel clerk pointed at me and said you get the free breakfast, but he (pointing at Tim) doesn't. For just an instant, a very small one, I felt like I was the celebrity :P

Thanks so much Mike! I hope that they will be there for the whole weekend but I'm really only worried about Friday (for my own benefit). I live in Indianapolis so I'm not worried about any hotel room, just really worried about getting to be in the right place at the right time to meet the men that make me smile! I can not believe that they are going to be 15 minutes away from my house and I have to be in freakin' Iowa thanks to the Air Force. There has been so many things that I've missed out on because of being in the military and I thought I had caught a break for once and then.......Screwed once again! :(

Sorry, Aly. Unfornunate timing, huh? At least you can make it one day. Let's just hope it's the right one.

 

 

I too hope that Tom is there for the whole weekend. He is the main attraction and reason I'll be going. Is Tim going to be there? If so, I didn't know that. That wasn't mentioned on the site.

 

I had contacted someone on the site to ask what day Tom is going to be there. I didn't get a straight answer. The person acted like he should be there all three days, but schedules do change.

 

 

I also want to know if there will be a RAW booth. If so, I hope they don't run out of stuff before I get there. If I do go, it will be on Sunday. So, Tom or Tim needs to save me something. Please. This is my first convention, and if I don't walk out of there with some sort of RAW item, it'll be very disappointing for me. That is unless, there isn't any RAW essentials there in the first place. But I don't know that, because I don't know any of the details. So, if anyone could fill in the blanks for me, that would be super.

I do believe I saw Tim's name mentioned on the site a few days ago so I think he will be there (not 100% sure though) but if he is going to be there side by side with our man Tom, then you know there's gonna be RAW materials in the house!

Tim mentioned that he intended to go to this show when we were discussing the convention schedule for the rest of this year. It isn't likely that RAW would set up a booth at this show, but Tim will likely have a table with a plethora of fine quality prints. Tom will probably have a limited number of Bad Planets and Alien Pig Farms, but those tend to sell out very quickly.

 

At this point RAW will have a booth at the San Diego show and likely to have booths at the October New York and Long beach shows. I wouldn't say any of this is official until Tom or Tim confirm.

You're right, Aly. I just saw it. The site has changed quite a bit. Why is William Forsythe sharing the top billing with Tom? What's that about?

 

As long as Tom or Tim is there, then I'll be there, as well.

No RAW booth? That would be sad. I asked someone on the site if there will be one. (I have sent so many questions to them that they probably have a folder with my name on it by now.) I was told they'll have that info soon.

 

Limited number? I was afraid of that. Let's hope I get lucky.

I think you can order the books from the RAW store. If you can't find what you're looking for or the store doesn't work for you, let me know and I will see what I can do.

 

I usually have the responsibility of setting up the booth for RAW and shipping swag out to the shows, so I may be able to answer some questions. Unfortunately plans seem to remain pretty dynamic until the week before the show, due to Tom's schedule. That's why the RAW booth is generally limited to the LA/San Diego area. I think we are going to try our first long distance show with a booth in October.

Well the only thing I'm worried about is getting to see T&T. They are the ONLY reason I'm cutting it so close on friday to make that long 7 hr drive for some stupid drill! WHY? Why does this always happen to me? Thanks for all the info Mike...you are setting my mind at ease...a little. ;)

I can confirm positively that Tom and I will BOTH be at the Famous Monsters Of Filmland show.

We will both be there on Friday, so no worries Aly ;)

We'll be there all weekend.

We're just trying to coordinate wether or not we'll be together in a booth space or separated - Me in artist alley and Tom in some kind of media section.

That is a last resort. We PLAN on having a booth space together.

 

It won't be the nifty set-up, RAW banner, T's on display kind of booth set-up we do for more local shows, but a BOOTH it should be.

Tom never brings pics to sign but I'll have plenty of giclees featuring Tom's rugged mug on hand.

 

There you have it!

More on this soon.

I'll see that we bring something special for you ;)

PS - Aly - If it's just you coming in then why don't we touch base right before the show and I'll work out something to get you a pass into the show.

Would be ridiculous to pay for a whole day when you have so little time.

I'll also do what I can to make sure that Tom is around when you make it in.

He does 2 hour bursts at the booth but needs to get away on occasion as you might imagine. It gets pretty chaotic at times.

So we should swap cell numbers so I have a good idea of when you will be landing at the Con. That way I can ensure Tom is on hand.

We connect, I hand you a pass, get you in, and then shuttle you over to where TJ is creating HAVOC ;)

Wow Aly, it sounds like you're going to get a Bradstreet escort to the man himself! You go girl!

And when you get back, be sure to tell us all about it.

Have fun!

I know it's not exciting for anyone but me, but I'll be there too!!

 

:P

 

 

I'm jacked like crack.

You better pep up!

It'll be nuts.

I'll touch base with Tom and relate the info you sent me via email.

Will be in contact on that as we get closer to Indy.

 

;)
