"Samuel", we'll call him, an affable, casually t-shirted executive at a prominent, East Coast-based comic book distributor, sat next to us last night at Jolt 'N Joe's in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter, after the Con closed its doors.

"Let's see," he started, looking up and to the right as he counted silently in his head, "I guess I've been coming to Comic-Con since 1994. It's nuts. Each year when you think it can't get any crazier, the next year is worse. Each day gets worse. Friday will be crazier than today, Saturday crazier than that."

"When did you notice it start to grow so wild?" I asked over my Dirty Shirley, a Shirley Temple with Vodka.

Again, he looked up and t the right, his lips counting the years. He swirled his Budweiser bottle and, upon settling on an answer, set it down with a clink.

"2004, I'd say. When Hollywood started paying attention. That's when it really changed. Hollywood realized, 'Hey. There's a key demo here and they're trapped."

My Viking took a sip of his G$T and said, "Totally trapped. Nowhere to go but Mexico."

Not much time to post today, kittens... it's Day 1 of San Diego Comic-Con! The weathers is bonkers-gorgeous and I am chock full of comic book glee! Third year now (Peanuts & Tarzan marking previous articles) I am published in the Official Souvenir Guide! This year's theme? The 20th anniversary of  Bongo Entertainment: the fine minds behind The Simpsons, Futurama, Bartman, et al.

So, off to the Con! Will certainly post more later. In the meanwhile, follow @JennyPopNet, @Eslilay and @GoodToBeAGeek for up-to-the-minute Tweets and snaps! Now, so much to do today, like buying one Rebecca Lane of Rotten Tomatoes a G$T for snapping this shot of my article for me and Tweeting the following:

"Some pre reading; penned by my talented friend @JennyPopNet Souvenir Guide pg 164...check it out!"

Cheers, Beki!(Look for her at SDCC; she'll be the one in giant tomato suit!)

If I could say it all better, I would. However, Kid Rock, Sean Penn and director Jameson Stafford have done it far better than anyone with their short film: a PSA titled Americans and originally shot in 2K12, on the real cheap, for FunnyOrDie. Produced as a tongue-in-cheek approach to combating the vapid, uneducated, ignorant, checkbox-stereotyping of political opponents, it serves as a fine, philosophical approach to keeping alive friendly debate and tolerance of opposing Weltanschauung ... regardless of which party you support.

Today's political climate objectively bites; so, I dedicate this to all my dirty, hippie, commie, weed-smokin', vegan, lib friends and my uptight, conservative, dogmatic, hillbilly, moonshinin', red meat-eatin', GOP pals alike ... you know who you are! Rock on, Americans! Embrace thinking differently and share a bit o' booze with a pal on the other side of the aisle!

'Tis rare I cannot find that which I seek: spiritually, commercially or otherwise. Now, I need help! Thanks to a presumably charming girl with a sense of style close to my heart, I am left without an ability to purchase what are only knownto me as "Cat Face Stockings For You".

"You need these, don't you?" my Viking asked upon seeing a friend post them on FB. "Yes!!" geek girl that I am squealed. Alas, the original poster merely highlighted them from another link: just posting cuteness, no shopping links. Using my Google powers, I eventually found one shop, I think. `sigh`

Sold at, maybe, it appears site-owner Emily is on holiday in South Korea buying loads of new goodies for her store. Until returning in June, she has taken her site off-line. Why, Emily, why? At least give me the opportunity to know the price point and availability of "Cat Face Stockings For You".

So, until Emily returns, does anyone have any clue where to find "Cat Face Stockings For You"?

Merci beaucoup!

Meet Miss JennyPop

Jennifer Susannah Devore

Meet The Darlings

The Darlings of Orange County

The sexy, cashmere beaches of southern California aren't always what they seem. The dirty little secret here is what it takes to survive. Everyone has a trick up their silk sleeve. Liz Lemon meets Parker Posey, Veronica Darling is smart enough to know what it takes and is willing to soil her soul to bring Hollywood to the California Riviera. The Darlings of Orange County is a salacious, hilarious, harrowing romp chock full of eco-terrorism, horse-racing scandals, weed deals and the obligatory lipstick-lesbian affair that inevitably leads to murder. It all climaxes in a white-knuckled, glitzy, celebrity-stacked Laguna Beach Film Premiere that spells success for Veronica Darling and trouble for her friends and family.

Whether fighting to end slavery, arguing for freedom of the press or scheming to end a duel, Miss Savannah does so with wit and persistence.

Meet Miss Hannah

Hannah Hart, ghost dame of the Hotel del Coronado

Hannah Hart, ghost dame of the Hotel del Coronado

So, here's the low down, all you Joes and Janes ... I'm Hannah Hart, dead girl. Don't fret, it's actually a sweet dish being dead. Having perished in 1934 in a terrifically vicious accessories incident with actress Ida Lupino, I reside where I died: San Diego's gorgeous Hotel del Coronado. It ain't a bad gig at all, really! Great weather, swanky guests (not to mention a few fellow ghosties), amazing amenities, my own private turret overlooking the sea and all the java juice and giggle water I can handle; plus, these bartenders know how to make a Planter's Punch like nobody's business! See, I've been waiting for this Internet thing forever ... now, instead of slamming doors and moving lamps, I get to wag my tongue all I like at

Abyssinia, kids!
