SUNDAY, JULY 15th 2012

SAN DIEGO CONVENTION CENTER COMIC CON

7:53AM - here early for #brandx panel. No line. Alone. Hope I got the time right. 

8:00AM - Ok a volunteer just confirmed: this is the right place to be for #brandx panel - me and one other man here. 

8:14AM - They’ve let us in. Me and one man sitting in a room that seats 1000

8:13AM - A deranged woman wearing an ill fitting muppet shirt just ran into through the    hall. Me and the man made eye contact.

8:19AM - My guess is the man here with me is a reporter/blogger. Mid 50s, bald, obese… He looks exhausted.

8:24AM -  4 other people (a family maybe?) just came in.

8:27AM -  Family asked me if this was the adventuretown panel. Told them it was  panel - they left. Now just me and the man again.

8:28AM - 3 marketing types standing in the back as well.

8:30AM - Lights dimmed! Slash’s theme song playing very loud! 

8:32AM - Oh wow! Matt is rolling a HUGE cage out. There is a man (presume its Russ) inside covered in black cloth. 

8:34AM - Russ has revealed himself! He’s in the cage. Pretty cool entrance. His wireless mic is not working tho.

8:35AM - Matt is having trouble opening cage. Russ is smiling and waving from inside the cage.

8:37AM - not having any luck with the lock on the cage. Russ is trying to help from inside the cage… Music blaring 

8:38AM - They’re playing the first ep now as they continue to deal with cage.

8:40AM - Reporter man has just left. It’s just me now.

8:41AM - They are rolling Russ and the cage off the stage. Hmmm…

8:44AM - Aaaaand that’s that! Video stopped and volunteer came out and apologized. Panel over. Too bad. I had questions.
