Fun, Sun and TV…Here I Come!

April 13, 2009 by  

I’m heading off to L.A. today for a week long celebration of TV. I’ll be attending a number of panel at this year’s Paley Fest and I couldn’t be more excited.  Just get me on the plane already!

Here’s my lineup of panels.  If you’re going to be there leave a comment and let me know.  And if you see me, definitely come up and say Hi!!

  • Tuesday: Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog
  • Wednesday: Dollhouse
  • Thursday: The Big Bang Theory
  • Friday: The Mentalist
  • Saturday: Desperate Housewives
  • Sunday: Pushing Daisies (Final 3 episodes screening)
  • Monday: Battlestar Galactica/Caprica (attending the pre-panel soiree so I’ll try to snag some good scoop.)

All this traveling means that it’s going to be an odd week here on GMMR. Not only will I be in a different time zone, but I’m going to be watching most of this week’s TV online. All of the Paley panels are at night, and since hotels don’t have DVRs, well, it’s going to be a lot of Hulu’ing this week. I’ll try to post throughout the day, but please forgive me if I’m not as consistent as I normally am…this pasty white Boston skin needs some serious sun time! As always, Team GMMR has a lot covered already, so we should be good.

Follow My Adventures…
Since I’m going to be out and about in L.A. all week, you can keep up with my latest whereabouts via Twitter.  I’ll be sure to tweet any celebrity sightings right away.

I won’t be live tweeting throughout all the panels.  I may send off a few quick tweets if something exciting comes up*, but I won’t be live tweeting every second of the panel.  Why?

  1. I find it quite annoying when people live blog stuff and therefore dominate my Twitter view and I wouldn’t want to do the same to you.
  2. I think it’s so rude to be twittering the entire people talking on the stage.  If you are twittering, then how are you also listening?  You aren’t.

*Example of something exciting? Neil Patrick Harris making a surprise appearance at the DR. HORRIBLE panel. Sadly he’s not scheduled to attend…and yes, this breaks my heart.

I’m so excited to go to the panels, meet up with my fellow blogger friends and hopefully meet a few of YOU!

    Have a ball, gmmr, and am ruthlessly jealous most about the Mentalist panel…ah Simon.

    I concur with your thoughts on tweeting while people are talking – it is done extensively in my field and I abhor it. I think we need a new manners book on how to behave in today’s ultraconnected world.

    I’m looking forward to The Big Bang Theory panel on Thursday!

    I’ll be at the Dr. Horrible panel with my seven year old superfan son. He has a crazy head of curly/wavy red hair. He’s heartbroken that NPH won’t be there. “It doesn’t make sense that the main character wouldn’t be there. It is DOCTOR Horrible, after all.”

    I can’t wait to hear your report on Pushing Daisies!
