NYCC FRIDAY: THE GOOD THE BAD THE UGLY

Lets get right into day 2, shall we? O0o0o0o0 we shall

GOOD: Got a good spot on this day and started getting wants. Now I was alone at the time and with people moving quick didn’t want to risk using my camera, and I really am not too good at a selfie, so I decided to use my cam for today. So when I saw Rickie Whittle, who I got last year, I decoded to test it out, and well results weren’t great

Made some adjustments and seemed to work out the rest of the day. Next up the cast of the new cartoon Rise of the TMNT showed up and neded mostly all the cast

Omar Benson Miller was incredibly nice and did pics for evyerone as this was his first NYCC.

Next was Brandon Mychal Smith from one of my fav TV shows, You’re the Worst. He was having a great time, made small talk for everyone, and was pumped about the final season.

Kat Graham came right over and also did pics for everyone. Super nice.

I spot another cast member Josh Brener and quietly call him over for a quick pic, you could tell he didn’t want to do a lot in a big crowd, but was fine with me,

Next some people I had already came over so I skipped, and insert JERRY smiley showed up as well. However, Jason David Frank came down the line so grabbed a quick pic with him

Jenny Slate, another want, showed up and was very nice to all, a big difference from a few years ago. Of course people had to tell their life stories so she was rushed towards the end but made sure everyone got a photo.

A surprise appearance by someone who I kept missing the past year or so, Dan Fogler, quiet but nice.

Ended up getting a compelte POKEMON for me in Josh Bowman

Met up with my tag team partner Greg and moved to a different spot for Anthoyn Starr from Banshee and spoiler alert he was a total asshole for no reason. But not all was lost

Saw Patton Oswalt try and sneak out and I was the only one to approach him, he asked if I was sure I wanted a pic, I nod, he let out a long sigh but did it. God Forbid if I even tried to make small talk.

Next saw David Ajala and was really nice, and grabbed a quick pic

Image20181005_151429 by Lanza218, on Flickr

Then the whole Anthony Starr fiasco, but ended up grabbing a pic with Supernatural creator Eric Kripke

Image20181005_161541 by Lanza218, on Flickr

We also saw a mystery person go inside, head wrapped in a towel, sunglasses, shirt over head, and an Umbrella, youd think Madonna was going in, but alas it was only Simon Pegg who did nothing leaving

Decided to go inside for the WWE signing and waited for over an hour, Paige was in a rush but did pics with people while on line so grabbed a quick one

Image20181005_172230 by Lanza218, on Flickr

I really could not say enough good things about the other 3 ladies, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, and Cathy Kelly. Commented on my Macho Man shirt, there was also a profession photographer o hand but told them to just not take my photo. Got a placemat signed which I thought I took a pic of but will readd it later. They offered me a doughnut and I happiy MOOCHED it.

Exiting the Javitz was a nightmare and found myself in a swarm of people who were tramplig each other for a BigMouth funko giveaway, got my hands on one somehow, and raced back outside just in time to see Anthony Starr deny us yet again. And for me to get an op with someone I have no clue who it is!!!

Image20181005_181338 by Lanza218, on Flickr

Att this point someone continues to tap me on the shoulder and I was told not to step on her bag, which was just laying in the middle of the sidewalk, I asked why its on thre, and she proceeds to tell me this convo is done, so I began yelling like a maniac and snapping, between that and people getting the same pic with the same erson and leaving no room for me to enter. Next pic was Chace Crawford and on principal I got the op

Image20181005_180708 by Lanza218, on Flickr

One security guard is now being a dick, and I try to squeeze between Class and Jerr who already have the next person but I needed and I couldn’t get through, I go around the barracade and thank god greg yelled for Mr Simon Pegg to stop, needed him for years, was in a rush but took a quick pic

Image20181005_180602 by Lanza218, on Flickr

Finally for me, Ellen Page came out and was super nice, got her just as the sun was setting on my day

Image20181005_184849 by Lanza218, on Flickr

BAD: Legs were killing me all day, the damn photobombers!!!!, learning how to drive toll free from NY to VA fo r about 20 minutes, in full detail of the roads,

UGLY: already coverd how people get multiple ops, and that concludes day 2!

A few notes:

Lanza was not outspoken that he wanted to take my spot to get someone I already have. Had I been made aware before the fact and not after, I would have happily given him my spot.

If a donuts was "offered" then how was it "mooched"? You can't mooch something that is given free to you. That's like me saying I went to walmart and mooched water from their water fountain. It's just something there that is offered.

People telling life stories in street setting is juts downright rude and inconsiderate.

Maybe Lanza's best NYCC day in years, having seen all the shots. Many I did not witness, though I did play traffic cop by screaming and waving Pegg his way. Another one I no longer have to hear about "needing"....Patton.
