Day 13 of My Favorite Things

april

Day 13 of my favorite things is dedicated to fan conventions!!

I’ve met some great friends at fan conventions (specifically for The Vampire Diaries).  You may have heard of cons like Comic Con, Walker Stalker, Wizard World, MegaCon, SuperCon, etc., but there are so many others you might not know about!

Being involved with Variety Radio Online, we work closely with EyeCon.  EyeCon puts on many different cons dedicated to certain TV shows, like The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, One Tree Hill and more to come.

Recently, they wrapped up their #ReturntoTreeHill con in Wilmington, NC dedicated to One Tree Hill.  They had tours set up, a party at Tric, concerts, hilarious Q&A panels, meet and greets and an extensive guest list!  The con was given a ton of publicity and, luckily, there will be a second one August 7-9!  Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) and Hilarie Burton (Peyton) have already signed up to attend and more will be announced as August approaches.

There will also be a con for The Vampire Diaries/The Originals on October 9-11 in Atlanta, GA.  Unfortunately this will be the last con for The Vampire Diaries through EyeCon, so make sure to visit their site & get your tickets!  Did I mention that the first guest announced is Joseph Morgan aka Klaus himself??  Well, now you know!!  Joseph Morgan usually doesn’t do cons, aside from Comic Con, so take advantage and meet the mysterious and awesome man!

Either way, whether you’re a fan of these shows, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Power Rangers, Arrow, The Flash, etc. or even just a fan of movies and comic books in general…check out all the different con pages and make your way to one!  You’re guaranteed to have a great time, and you might even be lucky, like me, and meet some amazing friends!

Here are the links to check out EyeCon on social media!  Follow them and let them know which shows you’d like to see a con for:

Day 11 of My Favorite Things

april

For Day 11 of my favorite things, I’m going with TV shows.

Yes, when we were younger we all heard that too much television rots your brain, but I’m a firm believer that it can stimulate your mind as well!  I mean, when you watch mysteries/thrillers, don’t you find yourself THINKING about what might happen next?  When you watch comedies, don’t you laugh out loud?  Laughing is healthy!

True, I might just be trying to justify the fact that I watch A LOT of TV, especially since I do reviews for certain shows.  But I genuinely find it exciting to transport myself into another world for an hour.  It’s sort of like acting.  As someone who is passionate about writing, I watch my favorite shows and wonder what it might’ve been like in the writer’s room coming up with ideas and character plot lines.

Call me a nerd if you want to, but I look at it as creative energy needing to be released! 🙂

Game of Thrones – Season 5 Premiere | April 6 on HBO

8
The day has finally arrived!! Season 5 of Game of Thrones premieres tonight, April 12th at 9/8c on HBO.

Here is a summary I found online of where we left the major characters:

Tyrion Lannister

Derided as “the imp” and the perennial underdog, Tyrion was on death row for the murder of evil King Joffrey. He was let out of jail by his big brother Jaime Lannister but instead of immediately escaping, Tyron strangled his girlfriend and killed his father Lord Tywin Lannister. Tyrion made his get away with the assistance of Varys, a eunuch, who parcelled him in a small box, to be shipped to Pentos. His destiny will be of major interest.

Arya Stark

The young tough nut has set sail for the city of Braavos after her captor, Sandor Clegane, aka The Hound, appeared to be mortally wounded during a rumble with Brienne of Tarth. Brienne had made a vow to the deceased Catelyn Stark that she would protect Arya but the young Stark took off after the rumble confounding Brienne, and her offsider Podrick. It remains to be seen what became of the Hound.

Queen Daenerys Targaryen

The Mother of Dragons is overseeing Meereen – home to mercenaries, freed slaves and dragons. However she’s had to chain two of her three fire breathing friends after one of them baked a young child. But the third, largest and most aggressive of the trio, is still on the loose. Rounding that dragon up will no doubt be high on her list of things to do.

Sansa Stark

Arya’s older sister was married against her will to Tyrion but fled following the murder of King Joffrey. She was spirited away to the conniving Lord Petyr Baelish, aka Little Finger. In the last episode the sultry and demure Sansa had a goth makeover and remains pivotal to the plot. Will she fall under the spell of Littlefinger?

Littlefinger

Lord Petyr Baelish bumped off his wife Lysa, who was also Sansa’s aunt. Along with Lady Olenna Tyrell, he was behind the murder of Joffrey. Littlefinger cannot be trusted and murdering anyone in his way is his hobby. Taking Sansa as his next wife looks to be high on his agenda.

Cersei and Jaime Lannister

This incestuous pair are twin brother and sister by day, reunited lovers by night. They are the biological parents of King Tommen Baratheon. How they react to the death of their father Tywin, who was also the Hand of The King, will be a major turning point. Especially since Jaime let the caged imp out and Cersei wanted him dead. Someone will need to replace Tywin and guide Tommen, who is not old enough to rule in his own right.

Stannis Baratheon

The wannabe king turned up at Castle Black at the right time to help Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch bring down the Wildlings. Stannis, who is supported by his priestess Melisandre and his loyal Hand and confidant Ser Davos, borrowed a cart load of money to finance a new army so they can march toward King’s Landing where the Lannisters are based. Stannis is the younger brother of late King Robert Baratheon, who married Cersei, and he claims to be the rightful king because he knows Joffrey was born out of incest.

Jon Snow

The bastard child of the House of a Stark and a steward of the Night’s Watch, ended up burying, make that burning, his Wilding love Ygritte. She died after the Wildlings attacked Castle Black which Snow was defending and in danger of losing until Stannis rolled-up.

Bran Stark

Snow’s little brother (or who he considers his brother), who is unable to walk and is guarded by Hodor, is now north of the Wall and inside a tree. Apparently he doesn’t appear in season five, although last we saw he was told he would never going to walk again, but fly.

Late Night Video: Seth Meyers Invites Game of Thrones Fave to Dinner Party

Late Night Video: Seth Meyers Invites Game of Thrones Fave to Dinner Party

LMAO this is hilarious!

Maybe it’s all that time he spent up at The Wall, but is Jon Snow a terrible dinner-party guest or what?

On Tuesday’s Late Night, the popular Game of Thrones character — portrayed by Kit Harington — was transplanted from Westeros to Manhattan to attend an intimate dinner party at Seth Meyers‘ home.

[pmc-related-link href=”http://tvline.com/2015/04/02/may-sweeps-scorecard-2015-spoilers/” type=”RELATED” target=”_blank”]May Sweeps Scorecard 2015: Weddings, Deaths, Breakups, Sex, Resurrections, Firings and More![/pmc-related-link]

Though Meyers pulls Jon aside with some tips on how to make appropriate small talk, the conversation quickly turns into a retelling of events from the HBO series (which returns Sunday). The Red Wedding, Oberyn Martell’s eye-popping death, an in-joke about Jon Snow’s mom — it’s all here.

Press PLAY on the video above to watch the uncomfortable evening (featuring 30 Rock‘s John Lutz) unfold.
