I had the best Comic Con by FAR and you can fight me if you disagree.

Okay so SDCC2014 was a blur, but in the cool way like how Big Foot is blurry. THERE WERE SO MANY SURPRISES. I hosted for Comic Con All Access which airs this Thursday at 11pm on SPIKE TV. 

I have never been to Comic Con. I have always wanted to go because I love Halloween, and I love Batman, and I love toys, and I love a few different comic books (Y: The Last Man, stand up!!!). But this was the year that I got to experience the madness, the over 100,000 people, the screaming fans, the green room snacks, all of it! I don’t even know where to start with how much fun I had.

A few highlights include meeting and speaking with Donald Faison (Scrubs, Clueless), Betty White (Golden Girls, Hot in Cleveland, being perfect in every way), William Shatner (Star Trek, obviously), Zach Levi (Chuck, NERDHQ, Tangled, my heart), and the original Batman, Mr. Adam West. His jawline is still perfect for the role, so if Ben Affleck wants to make way for Adam, I’m down.

I also can’t describe how good it feels to have your makeup airbrushed on and how I wish every person on earth gets a chance to have it done. Even if only for their own funeral. It’s dope. It looks better than anything.

My cohosts were great. They were a little zany, at times bro-y, and totally wild, but that makes for good TV, and I know the show will keep you endlessly entertained. READ: Damon Wayans Jr, Rob Riggle, and Keegan Michael Key were not my cohosts, but a lady can dream. 

But yeah, basically watch the show and reminisce. There were so many great movies and tv shows revealed and promoted and now I’m just bummed that I’ll never find the time to see them all. Ho hum.

AND DON’T FORGET TO USE #ControlTheCon and WATCH COMIC CON ALL ACCESS ON THURSDAY AT 11PM!!!!

Insta-Lately 7.7.14 (#math)

+ Chilled in LA for a week prior to VidCon and fell in love with Santa Monica Pier

+ Started working at MTV producing videos for MTV(other). You should go subscribe on YouTube because I’m going to be in a lot of stuff very very soon (!!!)

+ + Celebrated the 4th in Brooklyn with fireworks and festive clothes and good friends

+ Reunited with Hannah Hart at VidCon and kinda sorta made some plans to do some things in the future that might excite you because they legitimately excite me (!!!)

+ Went to Disneyland for the first time. I don’t think it holds a candle to WDW, but Mickey plays drums in their parade and that was some next level awesomeness
