I drew a complete blank as to what to write about this week. I’m in a world class funk and have been for a little bit now.
What follows is what I wrote for my weekly Comicmix article, but given some extra thought, especially for my MDW readers.
By the way, the above was my extra thought.
Comic Con sold out in two hours this year…DUH.
Every year the biggest pop culture event in the world gets bigger, so that should not be news to anyone, but as always people take to the ‘Net to bitch about how they could not buy tickets, or the only ticket they could get was for Sunday.
All you people who think your inability to attend Comic Con is somehow the fault of Comic Con — grow the fuck up. A couple hundred thousand people got tickets and as always, the event sold out.
You simply lucked out. How is that Comic Con’s fault?
The same goes for people who get tickets but can’t find a hotel room. There are only so many hotels in San Diego, and once those hotels are sold out, YOU are assed out.
You can solve both having a ticket and getting a hotel room by simply becoming a major playa in the industry or building your own hotel.
Crazy? Bad joke? Unrealistic? Stupid thing to say?
Not as stupid as blaming Comic Con or the city of San Diego for your lack of ticket or hotel because they sold the fuck out.
