NYCC: The Sexual Orientation Game

Oh, Mickey, what a pity, you don't understand...

All right, sorry I had to drag Micks into this one. Just snapped this pic of this nice big statue of him and had to squeeze it into the week's entries.

The real star of today's entry is, naturally, The Sexual Orientation Game... dot-com

What? You've never heard of it? Well, if you'd been at the 2008 New York Comic-Con and stepped within spitting distance of this lonely booth, THIS GUY would've been only too eager to try to explain it to you in the least appealing manner imaginable.

"The Sexual Orientation Game"? REALLY? At the NYCC? And they thought they could compete with Marvel? With nothing but some red curtains and some typeface? Emphasizing that this has NOTHING to do with "pornography"—when the word "sex" is about the only element the entire thing has going for it??? (Do I have enough incredulous question marks to drive my point home here?)

Really, "The Sexual Orientation Game" people? Did you REALLY think this would be a successful launch of your awful, awful product?

I'm sorry, but The Sexual Orientation Game might have to take home the EPIC FAIL award.

Speaking of stuff I don't get...

We saw these Goth Lolitas wandering about the floor.

Now, I'm all for frilly devotchkas prancing about. Especially when about 74% of the people there were geeky geek-o-pods with bad skin.

But the Goth Lolas seemed slightly out of place. Not instantly recognizable from some classic I.P. like Star Wars or Lord of the Rings.

The girls seemed to stick together. Like a little school of fish. Safety in numbers. Couldn't tell whether they were fans dressing up or part of this official Gothic & Lolita booth.

But even though they were dressed up as obscure anime characters we weren't familiar with... we loved them. Because they were girls. At a comic book convention.

In other news, read about Scientology's first celebrity defector.

Oh, and Connor Cruise—Tom Cruise & Nicole Kidman's adopted kid—is going to play a young Will Smith in a movie. How's THAT for Scientolo-Synergy!
KSW, Cruises! Fair Game! Fair is FAIR!!! It's rough and tumble and it's wild and woolly and it's a BLAST!!! It really is a blast. Because, dammit, there's nothing better than going out there and fighting the fight and then suddenly—(PCHRRRR!)... thing's are better. Get those spectators... you're either IN the playing field or OUT of the arena... HA HA HA HA, that's really, that's how I feel about it...!
