    Indiana Roof Ballroom - RV One Party

    July 14, 2017 in the United States

    The Indiana Roof Ballroom was the venue for the RV One / Entegra party. The Spanish square style room was impressive. Sandra & Pierre kindly gave us a lift and we had a great evening eating, drinking and dancing to the Wright Brothers Band. Cute horse drawn carriage crossing the lights as made our way home.

    Indy Brew Bus Tour - Indianapolis, IN

    July 13, 2017 in the United States

    Invited to join the Brew Tour by Sandra & Pierre from Ottawa. It was organised by FMCA Energised who used to be the Under Sixty club, a great group of people who like to be active and some have their young kids here with them.
    Visited 4 local breweries and sampled some great beer and could purchase more by the glass or in a 'growler' to go.
    A really fun afternoon with new friends. Our driver, Bob, when he found out we were from Scotland, introduced himself, 'Robert Burns Macauley' !!Read more

    Rosemont Day 2 & Indianapolis

    August 24 in the United States

    Good first day!

    Wizard World didn’t open until noon today and there wasn’t much to do before then, except grab some breakfast and relax. Once I got to the con again, I only had one mission for the day: meet Ernie Hudson! He’s best known for his part in Ghostbusters, even though he’s got more than 250 acting credits to his name. I met Dan Aykroyd a few years ago, so it was great to meet another Ghostbuster since it’s always been one of my fav movies. Unfortunately I had very limited time at the con, as I had to catch a flight to Indianapolis in the afternoon, and Earnie showed up more than an hour late for his autograph session. I was happy I got to meet him though and talk a little bit about the movie.

    After leaving Wizard World, I raced to the airport in a taxi and just got to the gate when they started boarding. Phew. Pretty stressful. I had a First Class ticket for the trip, in seat 1A no less, but it only took about half an hour to fly to Indianapolis, so the First Class Experience as it were was rather brief.

    Once I got to my hotel in Indianapolis, the very luxurious Conrad, I left to visit another luxurious hotel - the JW Marriott which is the host hotel of HorrorHound, my second comic con in as many days. As the name suggests, this particular con is mostly focused on the horror genre.

    My first panel didn’t really fit into that genre, however, but it was one I had really looked forward to: Cobra Kai. Almost 35 years ago, the original Karate Kid was released. One of the big classics of the 80s and a really great movie. This year they released a spin-off TV show (Cobra Kai) with the same characters from the movie, focused mainly on William Zabka’s character, Johnny. Zabka was at the panel along with Martin Kove who played his sensei Kreese in the original movie, and who will return in the next season of Cobra Kai.

    I really liked the original movies, and I think the new show is amazing, so it was a lot of fun and very interesting to watch the panel. I got a great spot in the front row, and even worked up the courage to ask a question. I ended up asking about their experience working with Pat Morita, who played the legendary Mr. Miyagi. They shared some funny and warm stories about the late actor.

    The next panel was focused on an old horror classic, Evil Dead II! I barely remember watching the movie, but I wanted to see the main star of the film, and a bit of a cult legend - Bruce Campbell! I’ve seen him twice before, but he is always very entertaining and tonight was no disappointment.

    More HorrorHound tomorrow!

    HorrorHound Day 2

    August 25 in the United States

    Fun day at HorrorHound! After a short walk around the show floor, I attended a Billy Zane panel. He has done a lot of different parts over the years, but he is probably best known for portraying the villain in Titanic (not the iceberg). His panel was quite fun and interesting. He also talked briefly about his first acting job in Back To The Future II! Not a bad way to start out, even though it was a small part.

    I also visited a panel for A Nightmare on Elm Street. Several actors from the franchise were there, including Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund. He is possibly the biggest name in the horror genre and definitely the most popular guest at this con. While I’m not a huge fan of the Freddy films, I really like Englund and it was great to hear some stories from the set.

    Another horror legend is Kane Hodder, who played Jason in some of the Friday the 13th films. He introduced a new documentary about himself, and then conducted a very fascinating Q&A. Aside from his stint as the iconic Jason Voorhees, Hodder has worked on a ton of other films in various capacities. Great guy.

    Speaking of Friday the 13th, I saw a screening of Never Hike Alone - a fan film that uses the Jason character and the location of the original film. It was actually very well done.

    My personal highlight of the day was getting a photo with none other than Kiefer Sutherland! He’s done so much amazing work over the years, most recently as the President in Designated Survivor. This was his first con appearance and the main reason I decided to go to Indianapolis - of all places!

    I also met the Cobra Kai guys to get autographs, as well as another acting legend - Lou Diamond Phillips! He was very nice and pleasant, and gave hugs to everyone. He was in the same room as Kiefer, his old friend from Young Guns.

    Finally, I met Judge Reinhold - another 80s star who, of course, played Billy Rosewood in Beverly Hills Cop! He was super nice and he was very fond of my Pearl Jam tshirt.

    After a long day at the con, I had dinner at the local Hard Rock which is a bit of a holiday tradition by now. Funnily I ran into Lou Diamond Phillips at my hotel when I got back.

    I look forward to another HorrorHound day tomorrow!

    HorrorHound Day 3

    August 26 in the United States

    Last day at HorrorHound!

    I started out the day by meeting Kiefer Sutherland again, this time for an autograph. We spoke briefly about the brilliant show Designated Survivor, where he plays the US President. He mentioned that they were still working on something for the show even though it was officially cancelled earlier this year. Good news! 😀

    After Kiefer, I went to see Shannen Doherty for an autograph. I grew up watching Beverly Hills 90210 where she played one of the main characters. She was super nice and even gave me a hug! When I was a kid watching that show on TV every week, I probably didn’t expect I would get a hug from Brenda Walsh almost thirty years later 😂

    Shortly after, Shannen did an hour-long panel about her career which was very interesting, fun and moving. She has been going through a long battle with cancer and was clearly very grateful to be out and enjoying life. I got a photo with her a little later in the day which was also a nice experience. Just a lovely person.

    At some point over the afternoon, I met Billy Zane for an autograph and got a photo with the two guys from The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai. Another moment that the childhood me would never have imagined happening so many years later! Also, they have basically not aged since the movie came out in ‘84.

    I didn’t have much planned today, so I attended a panel for a movie called 31. Since I haven’t seen that movie it was difficult to follow, but there were some cool behind the set stories. The actors from that movie were a bit nuts though!

    It was my first time at this convention, but I really enjoyed it and hope to return sometime.

    After leaving the con, I went for a short walk around the city. It was a bit too hot to stay outside for too long though and there isn’t a long list of things to do here, it seems. Instead I ended up getting lunch/dinner at an Italian restaurant. I got three courses, ice water and a big loaf of bread for 12 bucks! That’s a hell of a deal. The food and service was really good too.

    Tomorrow.. Canada! 🇨🇦

    Indianapolis Seightseeing

    May 26 in the United States

    Im Gegensatz zu New York wohnen wir hier in Indinapolis sehr bescheiden. Das Roof Inn & Suites ist es aus bekannten Gründen nicht geworden, aber Comfort Inn ist aber in Ordnung. Das Zimmer verfügt über zwei XXL Doppelbetten, somit ist auch für jeden genug Platz in der Nacht. Also Koffer in die Bude und raus in die Umgebung, neue Verpflegung aufnehmen.

    Nun machen wir uns auf den Weg nach Indianapolis schon mal die Atmosphäre in der Stadt aufnehmen und etwas für Leib und Seele tun (Will sagen Essen und Trinken...)Read more
