Cons and Tees

Cons and T Shirts

J.W. Coughlan, I write novellas, I am a nerd, here we go:

Cons mean cosplay, full gear for the battlefield if you will.

T-Shirts are our training gear, leading up to the battle, leading up to the next con.

Let’s talk tees first:

Seriously five minutes per day, equals 5 out of 1440 minutes per day, 182500 minutes over a lifetime, that’s 126 days of my life I will spend picking out what T-Shirt I will wear that day. And I have a lot to choose from. Which of all the Harry Potters? Maybe an Avatar shirt, no way TMNT. Actually it’s cold out, I think I’ll wear Gambit, or The Hobbits, I haven’t worn Batman in a few days, oooo Wolverine is clean…ish. No, Spider-Man, I was defending Andrew Garfield yesterday right? Or X-Men, under a Batman hoodie, is that allowed? I know use the Spock hoodie. See how things get. And these are decisions being made BC: before coffee.

T-shirts are a funny business, my partner in crime get me the best tees online. They are always so cool. Especially when they get double shipped. Seriously, I have two Legend of Korra shirts, two Ravenclaw ones, and two of Prince Zuko riding a Charizard.

Basically what I’m saying is if you’re rocking the nerd life, the best way to support those fandoms is with a good ol’ fashioned t-shirt.

Let’s talk cosplay:

I love dressing up, always have, even as a kid I preferred Halloween over any other night. Batman was my specialty. And yes when I grew up I found myself a lady. We have been Gambit and Rogue, Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers, Flynn and Rapunzel. Then we made a little human being, and since then we have cosplayed Han, Leia and an Ewok. Green Arrow, Black Canary and Arsenal. I recently went to Calgary Expo, it was a blast, now I am here, gearing up for eek fest. Can’t Wait.

So in short, be proud of those fandoms, those stories that stick with you forever, cause that my friends, is a beautiful thing.

The Trailer Park: The Cobbler

Hey Gang

Adam Sandler has not have a good run of movie lately and yet I do still love watching his films.  Well except for the one where he played his sister. Still can not bring myself to see that one. But with this new trailer I may want to see this one. If it is in the theater or not well that I will decide later. But I did like this trailer is funny.

Synopsis:

“Max Simkin (Adam Sandler) repairs shoes in the same New York shop that has been in his family for generations. Disenchanted with the grind of daily life, Max stumbles upon an heirloom that allows him to step into the lives of his customers and see the world in a new way. Sometimes walking in another man’s shoes is the only way to find out who you really are”.

The Trailer Park: Welcome to Me

Okay here is a trailer for a movie that I had no glue that is was coming out.

Welcome To Me is a movie starring Kristen Wiig  and James Marsden in a comedy/drama. Kristen plays a woman that is not at all home. The lights aren’t always on. You know what I mean. Well she wins the lottery and starts her own talk show. About herself.

Inspired by the immortal Oprah, she broadcasts her dirty laundry as both a form of exhibitionism and a platform to share her peculiar views on everything from nutrition to relationships to neutering pets.

This is a nice short little feature starring Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica) and Erin Karpluk (Being Erica, Supernatural).  I like this short and it was very entertaining.  The short is from First Love Films and this piece is being developed for a web series, Riftworld. If you enjoy this you can help with by going to the Kickstarter page.

Enjoy.

The Trailer Park: Unfinished Business Official Red Band Trailer #3

Hey Poppers

Here is another trailer of a movie that I had no idea that was even being release. The best part of this trailer is Dave Franco. Dave may just steal the movie from Vince Vaughn.

A hard-working small business owner (Vince Vaughn) and his two associates (Tom Wilkinson, Dave Franco) travel to Europe to close the most important deal of their lives. But what began as a routine business trip goes off the rails in every imaginable – and unimaginable – way, including unplanned stops at a massive sex fetish event and a global economic summit.

The Trailer Park: The Voices

I honestly have to say I do not remembering hearing about this movie. Also as I write this I can not remember how I came across this trailer. Stupid brain.  Anyway this looks like  fun movie. Okay movies about a serial killer are not meant to be funny but this one looks like it.

Ryan Reynolds stars as Jerry and likeable guy that has one problem. Jerry cat and dog that talk to him. The cat as most cats is the one telling Jerry to kill. His dog is a  kind, compassionate soul.  Poor Jerry listen to the cat and ends up becoming a killer.

The movie looks fun and funny. I don’t go and spend my cash that much at the theaters any more but may go on a cheap day and catch this one.
