I watched the documentary on the assembling of the avengers today.  It shows how much of a force comic-con was during that time.  They had so many clips from comic-con.  The intro was like a promo reel for comic-con.

Forgive me, if this was answered earlier. Where can I find this documentary on assembling the Avengers?

I saw it on Disney+.  I think it's $2 on Amazon.

It really highlights what a gamble the MCU was.  While those characters are beloved now, back then they were the leftover characters that Marvel couldn't license to other studios.

The annual gecko invasion has begun.  Most of the time, I can catch them and take them outside without any harm.  Today, it cost one it's tail.  Most of the time they don't even struggle.  I pick them up and they are totally passive.  This one struggled.  It was in my hand and the next thing I know it was out except for it's tail. :(

I expect there to be a bunch of baby geckos popping out from everywhere in a few weeks.

When I first arrived in Florida, those little skittering things scared me, but good. Now, I am cheering them on....eat those bugs!   ....within limits.  :D ...outside limits!
It is 2020, so...where's my flyin' car??!!

I had a dream about being at SDCC, getting into the Everything Else line in the morning and it dawned on me that I forgot to pack extra masks for the day and that no one else was wearing masks except as part of their costumes.

I didn't even know that the convention center made chocolate for comic-con every year.

It's neat that the Convention Center is still doing a themed bar, but it's weird that the giveaways take place 7/13-7/17 instead of during the con. And then you have to pick them up in person 7/20-7/21? It would be nice if they would ship them even if you had to pay the shipping cost.

Maybe they want you to have a snack while you watch @home.  They really should have a shipping option though.

White chocolate ain't chocolate for my palate  :-\ I would need shipping anyway.  But...it is neat anyway. Probably looks pretty!

I won!!

I would take a guess they didn't want to keep us from missing any panels.

I was hoping they would sell me a few more but it's so LE, there aren't any to buy. I guess I'll have to make my own version.

I miss EVERYTHING, even including being stuck in traffic on the 5 right now. :( Do we have a 'mourning' thread?
