  • As regular readers know, MegaCon is an event I've attended for three years in a row now, and though I always enjoy it once I'm there, the road to the promised land can be fraught with miscalculations and frustration. This year's outing was the worst in that regard; some of it was my fault, some of it was the serendipity of the occasion. In any event, although I had some very nice moments in Orlando, this year's outing may be my last---at least for a while.

    Leaving Tampa
    The stupidest thing I always do is wait until the last minute to do anything. The only thing I did right is buy tickets in advance and that's about it. For some reason, I decided to wait until the day of the show to print out my receipt (which they advise to bring with you). It was then that I discovered that the black ink cartridge I purchased some weeks ago on a gamble was the wrong size. The printer was dead in the water. This, of course, also foiled any chances of printing out any business cards. I had made three sets of cards with three different sets of contact numbers: one for Josh Montgomery, one for Brandon Jones, and one for myself (we were going to the Con together). I'd called Brandon the day before and emailed him the Photoshop files of the cards in question as a back-up plan; he thought he remembered a print shop near where he lives that could handle it. The day of the show, I learned that they couldn't open the files and there wasn't time to hunt for another printer. After Brandon left his house to come pick us up, he called from his cellphone to say he discovered he'd forgotten the map to MegaCon, and I could look it up on the internet. I said sure, but without a printer what good would that do? I decided to try and memorize the directions, then save all the files to a floppy disc and hope for the best. About this time, Joshua showed up at my house and, after explaining the situation to him, suggested we take the floppy and use the printer at his uncle's house. We probably couldn't afford the time on the cards, but at least we'd have the receipt and the map. Which would've worked out, except that his uncle's printer wasn't cooperating, either.

    I was shocked to discover Miami filmmaker prodigy José Prendes (right) sitting at the table space next to the MIA Josh Sullivan! After years of being a fan of Monster Man, I was happy to finally meet its creator.
    Just before our lunch getaway we took this group portrait outside MegaCon. From left: Andy Lalino (unexpected guest!), ED Tucker, Joshua Montgomery (squatting front), Brandon Jones, Nolan Canova.

Josh will be in the next group shot in ED's write-up, below.
    So, nearly an hour behind schedule, we left Tampa with no receipt, no map, and no business cards. Brandon's two small children, Zachary and Jacob, who rode with us (adorable kids, no lie) asked if "we were there yet" before we'd even cleared the neighborhood. That was pretty funny. They contented themselves with a portable video game all the way to Orlando. Jeezis, I envied them.

    Nearing Disney World, traffic inexplicably became bumper-to-bumper for miles. I say "inexplicably" despite the obvious because I truly don't remember traffic in the area being this bad on my two previous trips to MegaCon. This was the worst and put our already behind schedule even further behind.

    At The Con
    By the time we got parked and situated, found the hall and gotten our wrist bands in place, it was nearly 11:30am. We were only going to have a solid 90 minutes before our agreed upon departure for lunch at 1:00pm, and we'd already decided we were not going to come back to the Con afterwards (traffic snarls like we had you do not want to repeat unless it's real important), so minutes counted. After admiring a few colorful costumed players who greeted us, I left Josh and Brandon and set out for the celebrity area.

    The first friendly faces I saw there were Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: TNG), Tracy Scoggins (Adventures of Lois and Clark), and Brinke Stevens (famous B-movie horror actress). When I investigated an area of greater congestion in an adjacent area I discovered it was the autograph line for John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard, Smallville). I got as close as I could and took a few pictures. Later, I heard the disembodied voice of John Kassir, aka, The Cryptkeepr, who gave a terrific announcement over the house PA system as that character. It was the coolest thing. I'm sorry I was never able to catch up with him.

    I went hurriedly around artist's alley, and up and down each exhibitor's aisle as carefully as I could trying to take it all in. It seemed that the dealers and their selections were pretty good this year, as were some product demonstrators (I hung around a 3D animation booth for a bit to listen to one). It was on my last lap that I discovered the booth for Florida's man-in-black, Charlie Carlson (author of "Weird Florida"), and his psychic associate, Susan Thompson. We've wanted to meet for a long time so that was most enjoyable -- I presented myself as the "real-life figment of Will Moriaty's imagination!" (old joke because I'm so rarely seen). Charlie laughed, then explained that Emi and Amy Diaz, hosts of the currently-on-hiatus Graveyard Shift radio program, and who were supposed to be sharing Charlie's table, were tied up in traffic. Unfortunate, as I never did meet them.

    With only minutes to go I made another lap around the entire convention and discovered legendary EC Comics artist Al Feldstein all by himself! I took a casual picture, then thought to myself, "how many times is this kind of opportunity going to present itself?" So , I stopped and chatted with the man himself. About EC Comics, about the state of comics today, a little bit of everything. He was extremely nice, and talked mostly about how the Comics Code had screwed up comics, haha. I bought one of his art pieces, he autographed it and I got a picture with him. That was pretty special to me.

    I'd missed punk artist Josh Sullivan on previous trips to artists' alley and decided to try and triangulate his position one last time. I broke out the program book to see exactly where he was. Yellow section, table 6. As I closed the book, my eye just barely caught the name of who was at the very next table to Josh: filmmaker José Prendes!! I wasn't even aware he was going to be there. I raced over to discover Josh still hadn't made it into the Con yet (and by now it's nearly 1:00pm!), but José was there.

    Miami-based José Prendes has been reviewed in these pages as the writer/director of the low-budget, but highly entertaining schlockarama, "Monster Man", starring Conrad Brooks and Denise Duff. We had been in email contact only as recently as NolanCon where he would've made an appearance had it survived (he'd asked about any future ones). After some quick fanboy talk, I secured a copy of José's "Corpses Are Forever" DVD and a copy of his thriller novel, "The Harbinger", which he graciously autographed both. It was a terrific meeting of two Florida fans who knew each other but had never met each other (similar to the episode with Charlie Carlson). It is one of my fondest memories of the Con.

    So, we're out the door to meet with the others for lunch, and by "others", I mean the Jacksonville quotient of our party, the legendary ED Tucker, Byron Rocher and Dan Tuchman. And then who, but who shows up unexpectedly at the gate but filmmaker-and-former-PCR-columnist Andy Lalino (Filthy), who'd just given a talk at an indie filmmaker panel. We had only time for a quick chat and a group picture before separating. For any of you who're wondering if my mass-invite via PCR to our Fanboy luncheon got any takers.....ummmmm....no. Guess we're not quite big enough yet, haha. Maybe next time.

    As the Tampa and Jacksonville groups organize for our trip to UNO's restaurant (and a communication breakdown amongst the PCR camp is dealt with), I reflect on who I did not see at the Con, for whatever reason: Creature Feature archivist Lonnie Dohlen, filmmaker Jason Liquori, comics publisher Terry Cronin, Brian Ramsey of MouseSurplus (who Ed had invited to lunch but never showed) and as I've already mentioned, Josh Sullivan, and Emi and Amy Diaz. But I was also still giddy over the meetings with Charlie, Al, and José. it was plenty good enough.

    Although Lisa Zubek and her two grown children, Autumn and Gage, were expected at the Con, numerous delays held them up till lunch time which is where we all caught up. I met Autumn's husband Kyle (the two just married two weeks ago) and was surprised at how much we had in common, fan-wise. Autumn and Gage are even more beautiful than I remembered them last year. Lisa, who's lost around 20 pounds since she turned 40, was quite literally bouncing off the walls during our reunion. The UNO's summit was, as always, a blast. I agree with ED, that if the Con were to deep-six tomorrow, these reunions are plenty worth the trip; it's always great to be reunited with all these very special people.

    Afterwards, ED and his group left for Mouse Surplus, Lisa and her group left for their home in Orlando, and Brandon, Josh and I headed for home in Tampa. We had all commented on the possibility of moving next year's summit to a different event and a different day, but that decision can wait awhile.

    P.S. No, Marina Sirtis did not remember ED from last year's debacle over her nude photograph! This time the autograph session went peaceably.

    P.P.S. The lack of a printed receipt didn't impede our entry to the Con, the more important thing is to have a photo I.D.. As far as the map, Brandon called Lisa during our trip up and she gave him alternate directions to the Convention Center.

    P.P.P.S. Some of you may notice I am walking with a cane in a couple pictures. Please rest assured I am doing much better with my recurring physical condition, and the cane was more a failsafe than anything.

    By 9:30 Saturday morning I had already seen at least one guy in drag, two underage girls in costumes way too revealing for comfort, and a large woman who will adversely affect the way I look at fishnet stockings for the rest of my life. The hallway was already backed up with people eagerly awaiting the 10AM start time and commemorative T-shirts up to 5X in size were being hocked from registrations booths. There was no doubt about it, Megacon 2006 was here!

    The pre-show buzz this year was very disconcerting with rumors of bankrupt sponsors, decreased vendor turnout, and scheduling mishaps, so this year’s pilgrimage to Orlando was one of lower than usual expectations. Joining me was my usual partner in crime, Byron Rocher, and, finally following through on his promises, Dan Tuchmann. We took our typical leisurely route and drove down Friday evening to stay with friends. After a hearty breakfast on Saturday morning, we headed to the Orange County Convention Center to see if the rumors of Megacon’s demise were exaggerated or not. Once again there was an admission hike this year to $20 advance ($22 at the door) and the unpleasant surprise of an increase in parking fees to $10 (this year there was no Florida resident discount).

    As I entered the hall and was greeted by the smell of old newspaper, steaming hotdogs, and B.O., I realized I was in the right place. I immediately headed to one side to try and cover as much ground as I could in a logical fashion before the crowd got too dense. Fortunately, the side I chose lead me right to Charlie Carlson, author of “Weird Florida” and all around fascinating conversationalist. I re-introduced myself (we had met previously at one of his book signings) and got the details on his booth mates (the crew from the Graveyard Shift radio program who never did show up by the time we departed at 1:30PM) and future activities before I headed on into the media jungle in search of prey.

    While the trend of the last few years has been a decrease in the vintage comic books I collect, this year was a major leap back in time. Not only was I able to purchase a number of reasonably priced issues of both silver AND golden age comics but I was also able to gaze upon a few prime examples of truly historic books I would never lay out the cash for (All Star Comics #3 for $3,500!). I purchased a 1947 Quality Comics Doll Man Quarterly and two Fawcett titles featuring Captain Marvel (and family), Spy Smasher, Ibis the Invincible, and Bulletman. I narrowed the gap in my collection of original Justice League of America comics by several issues and also found a plethora of Teen Titan comics (including their first, as yet unnamed, appearance in Brave & the Bold #57) at very favorable prices.

    Anime was strongly represented as always and while there was the usual crowd of bootleg video dealers, the numbers seemed less than usual this year. Fantasy weapons, collectible cards, gaming supplies and assorted paraphernalia could also be found in abundance. Byron concentrated his cash on one area this year and managed to get within four figures of completing his three sets of Star Wars gaming miniatures. The number of dealers seemed about comparable with last year but there was a lot of wasted floor space dedicated to foam jousting and video games. Normally I would not have thought twice about this but Dan had called a few weeks in advance to inquire about getting a table and been told they were sold out for almost a month.

    My normal game plan at large shows is to head for the celebrity area right out of the gate to both beat the crowd and to catch the guests before the other fans wear them down. Unfortunately this year’s roster was the absolute worst for this size event in Florida that I can remember in recent history. Classic films and television were ignored completely in favor of a few modern celebrities and a tired list of background performers that had overstayed their welcome years ago. The two major guest were John Schneider (Bo Duke from “Dukes of Hazard” and Jonathan Kent on the current “Smallville”) and Marina Sirtis from “Star Trek: The Next Generation”. Supplementing this were character actors from the current “Stargate” series, a tired looking Playboy centerfold, and a motley assortment of voice actors and middle to bottom rung performers, many of whom hadn’t even shown up by my first pass of the area at 11:30. It was obvious where Megacon had cut its corners this year.

    Ironically enough, my sole autograph purchase for the show was Marina Sirtis with whom I had an unpleasant run in at last year’s FX show concerning her refusal to sign a nude photo from one of her films. This time I had come prepared and had a movie poster from the same film, “The Wicked Lady”, which she was cool with. Dan purchased autographs from Tony Amendola and Alex Cruz from “Stargate” and was generous enough to donate $2.00 to Ms. Sirtis’s animal charity to get his picture taken with her but passed on the signature.

    By the time 1PM rolled around, I felt I had seen all the show had to offer me and was ready to move on to the highlight of the trip, the Fanboy Luncheon. We had already run into Nolan and Brandon in celebrity area late in the game so we knew they were here. As we gathered at the appointed meeting place we ran into none other than Andy Lalino who stopped by to say hi but, try as I might, could not be convinced to join us for the luncheon. After a few false starts and comedies of errors, the Jacksonville Fanboy Contingency left with me for Unos while Nolan desperately tried to round up the rest of his crew!

    Fortunately we were all reunited at the restaurant about thirty minutes later and settled in to an awesome two hours of reminiscing, trivia, and a generally wonderful exchange of opinions and stories. As I had sincerely imparted on Andy in my attempts to get him to attend, if I was given the choice between only attending the show or the luncheon, I would be over at Unos in a heartbeat! Conventions like Megacon are a great deal of fun, but spending quality time with friends is priceless.

    The 2006 Megacon was a show of both pleasant and unpleasant surprises. The merchandise was definitely improved over last year but the increased prices and decreased celebrity guests were not a wise combination. I am definitely up for giving the show another try in 2007 but I can clearly see FX becoming the convention of choice in the very near future if changes are not made.

    Death Comes in Threes

    Yeah, I know -- it's an old foolish superstition. But still when it happens it sends chills down my spine. Three legends of the small screen died in the last week's time, all near and dear to every baby-boomer's heart:
    Don Knotts. 81. The image of Deputy Barney Fife from the old Andy Griffith Show is indelibly etched into every cranium that ever laid eyes on him. With comic timing that was as close to genius as you could get, any TV show or movie was made that much more special from his presence. One of my very earliest movie memories was seeing The Incredible Mr. Limpet at the local bijou. I worshiped that movie at the time; I still have the Dell comic tie-in! I actually tried to find a pair of nose-mounted, ring-shaped glasses, just so I could be like him. The Reluctant Astronaut, The Shakiest Gun in the West, all made use of Knott's over-the-top nervous Nellie routine and it made him a star and a legend. My last memory was Knotts' guest appearance on Andy Griffith's "Matlock" TV series. In a final scene, the two were sitting next to the fireplace, casually jawboning just like they did 40 years earlier. Don Knotts will be sorely missed.
    Darren McGavin 83. Although he made quite an impression as the dad in 1983's A Christmas Story (and deservedly so), I can only remember him as investigative reporter, Carl Kolchak, The Night Stalker. Like Knotts, anything McGavin is in tends to rotate around his powerful presence, and that's a good thing. The original Night Stalker TV movie was, at the time, the highest-rated of all time. The story of a displaced crime/weird news reporter living in Las Vegas and who discovers a vampire is behind a recent murder spree proved irresistible. Unfortunately, the low-budget 1975 TV series based on it only lasted one season, but McGavin (and co-star Simon Oakland) made even the hokiest scenes watchable and entertaining. He will also be sorely missed.
    Dennis Weaver 81. Speaking of TV movies of the week. Dennis Weaver displaced "The Night Stalker" as the highest-watched TV movie of all time when he starred in Steven Spielberg's Duel, a story about a typical businessman (Weaver) who finds himself stalked and terrorized by a tireless, faceless, truck-driver whose face we never see. Weaver staked his first claim to fame as Matt Dillon's sidekick Chester in Gunsmoke during the '50s. Many boomers remember him fondly as McCloud the folksy detective from Taos, NM, transplanted to the streets of NY. Of course, way before that I remember him from the '60s mild comedy Gentle Ben, about a park ranger and his two sons who adopt a brown bear as a pet (the series also starred a young Clint Howard, brother of Ron Howard, and their real father was also a cast member). Weaver, like McGavin and Knotts, will be sorely missed.

    UH-OH. THIS JUST IN:   Jack Wild. Friday, March 3, 2006. So much for deaths "coming in threes" (--skeptics win.) It has just come to my attention that Oliver! and "H. R. Pufnstuf" star, Jack Wild has died at the age of 53 from cancer. I remember Jack Wild's meteoric rise to fame in the '60s and early '70s as the star of the Broadway-musical-now-motion picture hit Oliver! where he played the Artful Dodger. Riding that fame, he was soon cast as Jimmy, the young boy (and only human star) of Sid & Marty Kroft's Saturday morning kid show H.R. Pufnstuf. During that time he made countless appearances on talk shows, where his very thick English accent (sort of a Cockney) endeared him to many, and his boyish good looks landed him on innumerable teen magazine covers (usually playing around with his name, "We're just Wild about Jack!!"). Unfortunately, Jack started drinking at an early age and became quite a heavy smoker in adult life. (Curiously, he managed to escape that being blamed on the "child-star syndrome" from the few accounts I've read.) His later poor health is, no doubt, attributable to this.


    With the 78th Annual Academy Awards scheduled to be announced tomorrow night it's time to reveal the films and performances I think will win the big prize and also the ones I think should:

    WILL WIN: "Brokeback Mountain"
    SHOULD WIN: "Munich"

    With almost $80 million in box office, the still joked about "gay cowboy" movie seems to have the momentum necessary to take the Best Picture trophy. While I thought it was a great film, it is basically a love story. "Munich" is the kind of film that draws you in, takes you along and makes you think. Though I see "Crash" as a surprise dark horse (think "Shakespeare in Love" triumphing over "Saving Private Ryan"), "Brokeback Mountain" will be victorious.

    WILL/SHOULD WIN: Ang Lee, "Brokeback Mountain." Setting aside my Steven Spielberg bias, Lee has crafted a film that continues to be talked about months after it's release. Lee, who won the Director's Guild Award earlier this year, has done the best work and should be rewarded for it.

    WILL/SHOULD WIN: Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Capote." This past year has given us the strongest group of nominees in this category in a long time. Five talented actors gave career best performances, with three of them playing real people. To me it's a three man race, between Hoffman, Heath Ledger ("Brokeback Mountain") and Joaquin Phoenix ("Walk the Line") but at the finish line it's going to be Hoffman all the way.

    WILL/SHOULD WIN: Reese Witherspoon, "Walk the Line." The nominees this year aren't nearly as strong as in the actor category and Witherspoon has stood out above the rest since the film opened last November.

    WILL WIN: George Clooney, "Syriana."
    SHOULD WIN: Everyone but William Hurt. Normally I have no trouble choosing the supporting winners, but the nominees this year have done such great work that I really can't decide. Hurt did a good job with a very showy part, but he already has an Oscar so he should spread the wealth. Paul Giamatti ("Cinderella Man") is the obvious sentimental favorite considering he's been passed over several times in the past. Jake Gyllenhaal ("Brokeback Mountain") really has a lead role (think Timothy Hutton in "Ordinary People") and should have been nominated in the lead actor category. Matt Dillon ("Crash") finally got the recognition he's earned. But people love George Clooney, who is nominated for two other awards this year (Best Director and Co-writer of "Good Night and Good Luck"). An award here will mean all is forgiven for "Batman and Robin."

    WILL WIN: Rachel Weisz, "The Constant Gardener."
    SHOULD WIN: Michelle Williams, "Brokeback Mountain." Weisz was the best thing about "The Constant Gardener," in a performance that will make people remember her as more then just "that girl from "The Mummy." However, Williams gave the most emotional performance in this category and would get my vote if I had one.

    The following are my choices for the rest of the categories:
    BEST ANIMATED FEATURE: "Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit"
    BEST ART DIRECTION: "Memoirs of a Geisha"
    BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: "Brokeback Mountain"
    BEST COSTUME DESIGN: "Memoirs of a Geisha"
    BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE: "March of the Penguins"
    BEST FILM EDITING: "Cinderella Man"
    BEST MAKEUP: "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"
    BEST ORIGINAL SCORE: "Memoirs of a Geisha"
    BEST ORIGINAL SONG: "Travelin' Thru" from "Transamerica"
    BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: "Brokeback Mountain"



    The radio companion piece to Terence Nuzum's 3-Part Digital Divide column, "30 Bands that Made the 80's not Suck", will premiere on Strange Agent radio, on Tuesday, March 7th at 9:00 pm with an encore on Saturday, March 11th at 3 pm.
