Denver Comic Con, part 1

Standard

When I found out that there was a comic con in Denver I knew I was going! If it was anything like the San Diego Comic Con, I was in! This was Denver’s first comic con so I knew it couldn’t possibly live up to San Diego’s (although I’m sure that would be true if it was Denver’s 20th) but if it was even a miniature version, I knew I would love it.

This passed weekend the Comic Con finally arrived and I was so happy!

The first thing about Denver’s Convention Center that is unique is the 40 foot blue bear peaking inside the windows looking in the window. He’s so cute!

Of course it had all of the quarky and fun things the other cons have:

The best cosplay all year.

A lot of sweaty nerds jam packed in one place.

Favorite characters from tv shows– Jasika Nicole from Fringe and Colin Ferguson from Eureka.

We got through the entire thing in 2 hours so it was literally the tiny version of comic con but it had the they vibe and enthuseam that I was expecting. I hope they can make it bigger and better next year.

In part 2, I talk about art and artists and I discovered on Comic Con.

Music Monday: Bo Bruce

Standard

What Ryan and I are huge TV Show junkies. You can find what shows I’ll be watching this week in my right sidebar. The second season of The Voice just ended a few weeks ago, and while it was airing, UK’s version of The Voice started up. They are far better singers than the second season of the U.S. in my opinion. One of my favorites was Bo Bruce. She has a unique and memorable voice. Unfortunately, she didn’t win, but I think she’ll suceed in music anyway. Here is her audition:

Sadly, her official youtube channel only has two videos and it looks like she has another channel over here. I’m excited for a potentional album to come out.

Hope your Monday is a good one!
