All About Me!
I’ve been attending Sci-Fi/TV & Film Collector conventions of various types and other media-related events since 1988. Mostly film fairs and exhibitions but the occasional press launch or review night.
My first ‘proper’ con was a Doctor Who event in Guildford in 1988. Sophie Aldred and Fraser Hines were the guests. I didn’t really go for me, but more for my brother who is a big fan. I have always been more of a Trekkie than a Whovian. He was 13, and me being the big brother took him along.
Initially, I used to go to events to buy merchandise for my collection, but then a good friend convinced me to go to the US with him and another friend, to attend a con run by a friend of his. We ended up going back to this same event year after year, becoming more involved each time. It was there that I was bitten by the autograph collecting bug. I met my first Star Trek actors and realised how much I enjoyed meeting them, and in some cases, getting to know them. Since then I have met many actors and actresses from a wide range of different TV shows and movies. It is my intention to bring to you my experiences, both the good and bad.
I quite often get asked what shows/films/fandoms I follow. It’s not an easy answer for me as I have 4 categories. Shows I have loved since childhood and continue to follow, my main shows/series that have been with me since childhood and always will, shows from the recent past (20ish years) and finally shows that I am currently following. Complete list below.
I tend to post about all the various events I attend, actor meet and greets, photo ops etc. and I will blog about anything else from the world of Geek such as launch events and signings as well as my thoughts on current film releases here and there as well as merchandise and book reviews. The list is endless!
Live long and prosper, stay shiny and May the Force be with you!
