Well Demoncon 7 was amazing today, met up with friends old and new and had a blast as Bat-mite. It was a great test for the costume, smiles and weird looks from the crowds loved everybody :)
Progression of my Batmite cosplay/puppet
I just saw that James Avery just passed away and all I could think of was this scene from Fresh Prince. The ending moment between Will and Uncle Phil was unscripted and it shows how caring and loving James Avery was towards the people he interacted with. Judge Phillip Banks was the first positive black male role model I saw on TV (other than Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable…) and I want to post this in tribute. Mr. Avery, thank you for being a part of my childhood and you will be sorely missed.
James Avery — the beloved dad on “Fresh Prince of Bel Air" — has died at age 65 .. TMZ has learned.
Sources close to the actor tell TMZ he died in an L.A. hospital last night. Avery had recently undergone surgery for an undisclosed illness and took a turn for the worse late yesterday.
And we’re told … his wife, Barbara, had been at his bedside but left for a short period of time to get something to eat. When she came back, she learned he had just died.
Has anyone watched the Channel 4 show geeks which started in November the show itself see to imply that geeks are more judgemental than the “normal” people they are in fear of, even though it is probably “normal” people who were the ones who drew them into who they are, the entire premise is oh isn’t it funny the nerds have come on holiday oh look the geek girls are getting chatted up by some beach bod guys, they must be having a good time. I know this show ain’t for me but the thing is the whole geek culture like any other subculture has a air of the outsider being rejected and thrown aside by the people who are considered “normal” because of some mythical tome that states what is popular.
I don’t know anymore…..
