We took advantage of our Labour Day off to head on down to Armageddon, the pulp culture expo. Allow me to let you in on a little secret only known to a few industry insiders…
Armageddon friggin’ sucks.
It’s getting worse and worse every year.
It’s now at the stage where I wouldn’t even go if I had free tickets. I wouldn’t go if I had to pay for parking.
This year, I had free tickets, and free parking, and it took a total of approximately 30 minutes to see EVERYTHING.
They had a Wii stand there, but no Wii. They had a Playstation 3 stand there, but no Playstation 3.
They have NOTHING good.
I couldn’t even be bothered going into any of the panels, even though they had folk from one of the TV shows I like (Stargate Atlantis). It just wasn’t worth it if it meant hanging around in that useless hell hole of Look-At-Me Emo kids and fat girls with battleaxes.
Tonight we headed over to Adam & Sandra’s place and watched the new Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood with them, Karl & Louise, and a lot of curries. It was, amazingly enough, quite good. Swearing, sex, violence. Everything that Doctor Who always should have had.
