Depends on whether it weighs the same as a duck, from what I hear.

That's a lot of long coats and wool scarves.

I'd like to fill the LAX Marriott with Amy Pond, if you catch my drift.

Speaking of Chris Hardwick, if you're not listening to the Nerdist Podcast, what the hell is wrong with you?

He had wil on the other day, and I'm listening to him and Nathan Fillion right now.

Chris Hardwick is great live, if you get a chance see his standup comedy.

He was just in the DC area recently and I missed it. I didn't find out about it until it was too late (also I have a 4 month old child, so I don't get out a whole lot as it is).
 
2011-03-01 12:47:37 PM  
Post Ponds please.

Call me crazy, or perhaps a case of convergent evolution, But the guy in the red and black shirt at the 2:40 mark looked strangely familiar.

At a Doctor Who convention but not dressed up?

Why that is as odd as going to a Star Wars premiere in a NY Yankees jacket.

Apparently he DOES associate with lower life forms!

Truthfully I think that these two images are the same guy and he really is some sort of bi-coastal super nerd.

Here's a link to the Triumph skit in which the guy in question appears at the 2:22 mark.

I was just listening to the Nerdist podcast with wil this morning on the way to work.

I LOLed at "Mr. Solid Meat Dick" and everybody on the subway looked at me funny.

There were dozens of people dressed as various Amy Ponds at the convention, apparently. You can see some of them in the video including the one wearing a pirate costume. That outfit must've been inspired by the filming for next season that was going on right before the convention happened - apparently we're getting a pirate story later this year.

If you haven't scrolled down the linked page from the video, you should. There's a ton of photos & videos from the convention including interviews with the guests (5th Doctor Peter Davison & his entire original TARDIS crew, etc.) and a live transformation of Gary Russel into a Silurian.

Love Craig Ferguson. Screw Chris Hardwick. I can't stand him interrupting my Tweetmails.

I read that as "Christina Hendricks filmed it all for the CBS Late Late Show"... Yeesh.
