I’ve been so excited preparing for this and now it’s official: I’m going to my first San Diego Comic Con! You might remember that I went to New York Comic Con last fall, but this will be my first time at SDCC.
In fact, this trip (which is full of exciting things) will include a lot of firsts for me:
- First San Diego Comic Con
- First time in California
- First time in Mexico (I’m planning on visiting Tijuana)
- First time in Los Angeles (staying with my buddy Andrew for a few days)
- First time at Disneyland (been to Disney World in Florida, but this is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time)
And I’m sure there will be tons more firsts once I get there!
I plan on going to as many panels as I can, but obviously being the resident Gleek for Hypable.com, I’m particularly excited about the Glee panel that Saturday! And Andrew will be a part of a Harry Potter panel that will take place on Sunday! Details about that are forthcoming, but keep and eye on Hypable for all the details!
I can’t wait to see what kind of shenanigans and memories I come up with in California this year. I know that I definitely wanna visit Disneyland and Griffith Observatory while I’m in LA. I’ll be visiting my couple of friends that live there hopefully too!
Are you going to SDCC, live in San Diego, or Los Angeles and want to suggest things to do or a meet up? Let me know on Twitter @jthrasher!

Moving on from negative and unnecessary bullshiz about nothing, let’s talk about a serious issue.
For those of you who are reading from California I hope that you are voting NO on Prop. 8 this coming election. We’re only a few days away now. Some of you may be wondering “Why does Prop. 8 effect you in any way John?” Well the truth is that if Prop. 8 is passed, other states in the country can use the result as a foundation to ban gay marriage. If Prop. 8 is defeated, people all over the country will finally be treated at as equals, not second-class citizens.
Below is a video of San Diego mayor Jerry Sanders announcing his support for NO on 8. I hope that if you are in California you vote for the right to an equal America.
