What a swingin' convention






Wasn't that fun...
.
Big thank you for all of you who came out to Markham, Ontario last weekend - and Polaris 23. You forded rivers, flew from Ireland, drove via Montreal - endured all sorts of hardships to get there... so kudos to you. Once you knew where it was it was easy to find. Am I right? It was great to see Dave and Kate again, and a lot of fun chatting with them for what seemed an eternity up there...
.
Sad news from the Australian newsdesk here at Zelenka Industries - the July convention there has been postponed till November. I think we're just waiting for the Australian continent to drift .004 metres closer to North America in the interim so that it's not so far to go. Or something like that.
.
I'm off for some work, be back shortly...

Whoa, some serious mustache action going on there! I like it. :-D

Great photos. Lovin' the blog.

So much for my first post. Take care and keep it comin'.

It was great to see you again. So much fun, I am still laughing.

Michele said...

We attended Sunday only and truly did enjoy seeing you with that other guy and Kate Hewlett :)
Did you have you audition yet?

Annabel said...

I'm glad you enjoyed the convention! Everyone I talk to who went, says it was fun. I wish I could have been there... some day I'll get to one of these events.

I like the moustache! :)

fannishinc said...

Glad you had a great time at the convention :)

I'm really disappointed about the Australian convention being moved to November because now I probably can't go :( It's going to be a lot of fun for all those that can make it there. I hear that BOBW conventions are the BEST!

Ange said...

Does the new 'stache come with a tragic Spanish accent? It's...certainly different. Good luck with the audition there. :)

Four extra months to try and save up, I hope I can make it this time.

I'm very sad I wasn't able to come to the con! Hope you can go to Dragon*Con 2010?? **hopeful grin**

Anyway, glad it was a blast! Anymore Where In The World pics any time soon??

Cheers!

David, it was really fun meeting you again!
It was really nice that you gave up your stage time on Sunday to give all the fans the Nykl and Hewlett show! That was priceless and so much fun to watch!

I personally like the moustache and was really surprised that the majority of the audience didn't!

Thanks for a really fun convention!

P.S. Does the e-mail on your website work? Based on one of the questions and comments made Sunday and knowing alot of fans have sent e-mails.......

Jinx said...

Glad you had fun, looks like a blast!

Looks like I am just going to need to renew my passport to attend one!

D said...

I'm glad everyone had a blast. Thanks for the photos. And since the only way for me to attend one of these things is via the internet, I hope some video makes it to YouTube soon.

As for the moustache, it's kind of hard to tell from the pic. Have you ever thought of handle bars? ;-)

Polaris was a ton of fun. Glad I got to meet you. : )

Good Luck on your audition. The mustache was nice.

Sajina said...

Thanks for posting the photos :) It really looked like fun!

Marianne said...

It was fantastic meeting you, and I will have you know the ankle is better (still wish I could blame it on Alcohol) *lol*

I was soo glad to have a Fan Girl Sunday meeting you, the other guy and Kate!

Take care!

D Hewlett seemed to have quite the gift bag there. He also seemed more interested in the present than his fans. Did you get a present and a large coffee like he did?

Thanks for making my first convention so memorable!!! I must say, your "fan fiction" was awesome good fun to act out!!!

BethyNYC said...

So glad you had a good time at the convention! Would love to hear how the audition went and your next jobs!

Tai said...

Well well, that mustache..., it is..., it´s... unexpected.
But please tell me, that Zelenka will NOT have it in the SGA Movie!!! :D

Aaaah, both Davids in one place, that´s too much! Why are you so far... far away? I truly envy all that people at the convention! But that Day will come - and you ´ll appear in (Czech Re)public again, won't you? ;o)

Wish you'd visit Czech republic sometimes. :)

Zdravim z Ceske Republiky. :D

berryblade said...

almost a good thing that conventions been moved - now I know about it! :D
i hope it comes to perth.

you should post some more photos mr. n. you have quite a knack for it :)

Rosehawk said...

Okay, so I went to this convention and bought this really nice art piece of someone sitting on a rocket.
Decided to get it framed instead of keeping it with my autographs; it's art - it's meant to be shown....OMG, the frame costs almost as much as the art piece. It will look really nice when it is done, though now I have to figure out where I am going to hang it!

Ahhhhh well, I pick it up on my birthday so it's a nice gift to myself!

That last pic there.. YOU LOOK LIKE MY DAD! Before I get asked, I'm only like 4 years younger..

D said...

Sam, your Dad must be a nice looking man then. :)

Susan the Tartan Turtle said...

David - are you still out there? I really think that it is time for you to update your blog and cheer us up.

Did you ever get the parcel that you sent me returned to you? I was looking forward to displaying my piece of glass from the explosion in "First Contact"?

Must go as my little tom cat Frankie is demanding (noisily demanding) a second, or is it a third, breakfast.

Rosehawk said...

Hey Susan the Tartan Turtle, just because David is busy and not posting much doesn't mean we can't post (grins).

What's the story behind the glass? Sounds like a fun one!

pbugsmom said...

Hi David! Miss seeing you on Atlantis, and wish you would have been at the Chicago convention! Be well!

D said...

Hi David. I hope you find the time to post again soon as I always look forward to seeing your blog's indicator light up on my toolbar. I miss my Letters fix, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. No pressure, just post when you can. Thanks.
