The Company I Keep

So the way Supanova works is that they fly us down for their first show in Melbourne, put us up for a week so we can enjoy Australia, then we do a second con in Brisbane the following weekend. It's a great pop culture event, blending sci-fi, movies, anime, and comics. And as far as guests are concerned, we all tend to hang out and move around together as a group, and as the lowest profile guy on the list, here's some of the esteemed company I'm keeping this week...

In the back row:
Jenny Fallon, author of The Hythrun Chronicles and the Stargate SG-! novel.
My fat ass.
Michael Winslow, Man of 10,000 Sound Effects, from Police Academy, Spaceballs and Gremlins.
Jewel Staite, Kaylee from Firefly and Jennifer Keller on Stargate Atlantis.
Spike Spencer, voice of Shinji in Evangelion.

Front row:
Daniel Zachirou, organizer of Supanova.
Colleen Clinkenbeard, voice of Luffy from One Piece.
Monica Rial, voice of Simca from Air Gear.

Other guests include John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli in LOTR, James Kyson Lee, who plays Ando on Heroes, Lou Ferrigno, Greg Horn and Arthur Suydam.

Jewel Staite?! You're so lucky! :) She's one of my favorite actresses -- and you're one of my favorite comic book writers. Hmm. Small world. O.o
