A shorter day, but still plenty to report, as the convention starts to wind down.
We'll start with a local boy's handiwork:
Today we were really starting to wear out, so we made it a shorter day. As we left the convention at an embarrassingly early 5:30 p.m., I was amazed at how many people were doing the same. I think it all starts to get a little overwhelming come Day 3. Still, there's no place like Celebration. The conversations you have are ones you could never get into anywhere else. People can actually talk about the "Episodes 1 to 3" here and never use the word "stinks"! It's awesome.
Today we caught Charlie Ross' "One Man Trilogy." We saw it for the first time at CIII, and it is one of the things that is truly worth the wait. Charlie acts out every main character for the Original Trilogy in an hour. He also pokes fun at some of the Trilogy' mysteries, like, why didn't Chewie get a medal at the end of the original "Star Wars"? He is so much fun to watch, and truly loves what he is doing. He is, as he said at the end of the show, "one of us." He appeared once at the Paramount in Aurora, and if he ever hits the Chicago area again, I can't recommend this show enough. It is a riot.
And I stand corrected, again. It is Zuckuss. Of course, it could not be as easy as Zukkus, which is how I spelled it this morning. I actually saw a Zuckuss figure in the Exhibit Hall today. I should have picked it up for Seth Green.
Tomorrow is the last day. We are doing an "Amazing Race" style event in the morning called, what else, The Kessel Run. In honor of it, today's trivia. Who did the Kessel Run? How long did it take this person?
See you tomorrow.
