  1. Since you've pretty much had a Michael Myers present for the last couple of years: George P. Wilbur or Dick Warlock please. They're the only 2 I'm still missing
  2. Thoughts of the week: Rob Paulsen, Tress MacNeille & Maurice LaMarche (all three from Animaniacs, but also dozens upon dozens of other famous voice acting roles) Lauren Tom (Futurama, Trollhunters) Nancy Allen (Robocop, Carrie) & P.J. Soles (Carrie, Halloween) Wayne Knight (Jurassic Park, 3rd Rock from the Sun) Linda Hamilton (Terminator), been hoping to see her announced again since her cancellation a couple of years back
  3. Daniel Stern (Home Alone 1 & 2, C.H.U.D., Whip It, Dilbert, Leviathan, etc.) has signed on with a promoter, so he's doing conventions now! You know he'd be popular enough Rob Schneider, Kate Beckinsale, John & Joan Cusack and Brian cox have been doing cons too in the past, would be great if you could get them over here as well!
  4. I'm curious about my mod-edited post. I know you can't mention other conventions, but is even something as incredibly vague as "doing a convention in a certain huge country which houses thousands of conventions" not allowed now? I always find it much more interesting when someone mentions a non-regular con guest is doing a convention somewhere on the planet. At least then you know there's a bigger possibility of him/her attending others
  5. Shannyn Sossamon (A Knight's Tale, Sleepy Hollow, Wayward Pines, ...). I'd absolutely love to meet her
  6. Saturday only, might be a though one If he personalises I'll definitely try to get him though
  7. I'd fully support a Farscape reunion as well, I'm still missing a couple of the cast: Anthony Simcoe, Lani Tupu, Wayne Pygram and Paul Goddard. If you're going for a Stargate SG-1 reunion, I'm only missing Beau Bridges. So he would be great. And since Showmasters loves to invite every background character in anything Star Wars related: I'd love to meet John Beasley :) (rather for Everwood than the Mandolorian of course)
  8. I've really been hoping the Atlantis guests would be invited again (as I hadn't seen the show back then), so great news!
  9. Well damn, missed him in the past but it's looking like I'll only be doing Saturday :/
  10. I seem to remember there was always a member of Olympia's staff in each elevator in the previous years. Unless I imagined that? Not that I think it's that necessary, but if people are saying there were elevator troubles this year....
  11. I had a good weekend as well, thank you for asking. Glad the heat didn't get the best of you
  12. Virtual handshake accepted. In retrospect, I probably should've elaborated more in my original post. It certainly is impossible to educate everyone, but the more the better and I do wish there was more general understanding, but yeah... people. I do get that it's not an easy topic and can not fathom the blunt ignorance you and your partner have to deal with. So certainly all good luck, support and respect to you.
  13. Don't get me wrong, I do agree with a great part of your post. As said in response to another, I'm not saying that people at the convention have to prove it to me. As you said they're checked by Showmasters, etc. etc. I would never dispute if someone with an acces pass really needs it. So as I always have done at every convention I ever attended, I do blindly accept it. I would never assume someone is faking it. People do not need to explain at all, which is why I ask this question on a forum and would never do so in real life (to a stranger). I'm not asking a person on here directly (which would be incredibly rude). It's a general question. People who want to give an example can do so (anonomously), those who don't want to explain or talk about it can just ignore that question. (And if anyone takes offense, than certainly my apologies as that was not the intent.) The one thing I heavily disagree on is that we need to get to a point where society accepts things blindly without explanations. If anything, I find it quite a dangerous sentiment. I personally find understanding, discussing and education to be incredibly important. Someone else mentioned compassion. I find compassion incredibly important, but it mostly comes from understanding and not because society tells you to have it. I feel no question should ever be taboo if asked in a respectful manner and the person is willing to talk about it. I do understand your position and you seem to have a very strong opinion on the issue, so all my respect for that of course.
  14. I certainly don't claim every disability is visible and I want you to know that there's nothing wrong with my compassion. I would never roll my eyes, dispute someone being in the access queue or someone asking me if a person could cut in because it's difficult for this person to stand in a queue. Thing is that I don't want to be ignorant, I would like to understand what about it is difficult for a person. Comprehension is incredibly important, because otherwise you get people who ask "why a person in a wheelchair gets priority since they are sitting down all day" like Queen Sindel described. So no worries, I don't think you're sounding rude
  15. Thank you for giving me an example, instead of shaming/ridiculing me like some above. I hope everything went well for you during the weekend :)
  16. I hate to be an ignorant ass, but I don't really get it either though I'd obviously never make a comment like that and when you're on crutches or have a certain mental condition that does make perfect sense to me to get priority. But yeah, I don't really understand for some others. I'm not trying to be rude, but I'd like to understand it as I don't think I actually know anyone with a disability.
  17. It's not always easy to estimate how busy a guest will be. Shatner has been very busy in the past. It would be silly to keep him on VQ if there's not really a demand for it.
  18. I'm going to guess E.T. as well. Not a big fan, but it makes sense
  19. Finally bought my Ricci photoshoot, but it seems they even doubled the batches :p
  20. Eeeeh, I haven't seen the film in ages. I'll go for archer.
  21. Noooooooo, I was so looking forward to meeting him Hopefully you can bring him back soon (or to Dortmund)
