Question for ORC Folks - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"
Question for ORC Folks|
Okay... apparently I'm a total idiot. For some reason I remembered all the programming being on Saturday and Sunday, and so set my flight up for Friday, to arrive around 5. But now I'm thinking back... didn't they have Friday activities, too? And sometimes involving the main guest (or guests) panels? Oh, damn.
Unfortunately, Creation still doesn't have a schedule up. How far up a creek am I? Do I need to (pay lots of money) to change my flight or not? Inquiring minds want to know...
Friday is the opening day of the convention, and they do have activities then. Given that Andy is appearing Sunday and Billy's there on Saturday, my bet would be that Daisy's going to be there on Friday afternoon. I could be wrong, of course, but I think that's what Creation would do if Daisy's schedule allowed it.

I was going to say the same thing - there is programming on Friday from around 1 or 2, usually including at least one of the big name guests. Maybe you could do early standby depending on which airline you're flying? I know you can do it for Delta.
My new question is to blackbird - how do you know Andy is Sunday and Billy is Saturday? Just curious!
I'll be there too - very excited!
I was wondering that, too! Although it makes good sense to set up the Con that way. T
Thanks for the info!
Creation's site has said that Andy is appearing Sunday from the start, and Billy's charity brunch and Beecake's performance are on Saturday, so I'm assuming that he's appearing then, as well. They usually have to pay more for artists who appear on more than one day, and I'd imagine that they wouldn't want to risk that, if they could help it. Beecake is also doing a concert in LA at 11:00 p.m. Friday night.
I hope this helps!

Thanks for the info! I totally missed that the site said Andy was Sunday! Thanks for telling me about the Beecake show too - I hadn't even thought to see if they were performing outside the convention! It's kind of strange though - since 300 comes out on Friday, I figured David Wenham would be busy with that and he would be on Sunday. Curse Creation for taking *so* long to post a schedule!
David's in 300? I had no idea!

Yep - he's actually the narrator and has a fairly big role. I got to see it at a sneak preview last night and he does a really good job! (He's *super* buff in it too!)
yES!!!! *G* That's great; looking forward to seeing it!
These schedules do seem quite insane, to me. I am reminded of ORC 2005, where Dom Monaghan had to fit his appearance in with the insanity of the Golden Globes and was at least an hour late, due to meetings and traffic. The poor guy was utterly knackered, and then treated badly by Creation. I hope that they'll take better care of David.
I join you in cursing them for not posting the schedule, yet. It would be lovely to be able to plan at least some of our time in advance, just so that we might actually be able to socialize with our friends! *grumble* Oh, well. These things are always a combination of fun and frustration. :)
Check out the Beecake MySpace for specifics; it's a place called The Hotel Cafe'.
At the Hotel Cafe on N. Cahuenga. The link to their March calendar is here.
Beecake is playing at 11:00 p.m. on the 9th.
I hear that David will be Saturday, too, though this might just be a rumor. If I hear otherwise, I'll let you know. That schedule should be up any day!
p.s. I was planning on taking pics of you and Rakshi Friday night for the costume show, but I may skip out to catch Billy's Band at the Hotel Cafe' (sorry!!!!). Can I try to get a posed pic of the two of you beforehand, if that's the case?
p.s. are the last 4 digits of your phone # still 8067? Mine are 6940 - do you still have it? Thought I better check. I'm going to go standby for an earlier flight, but if I don't make it, the timing's going to be tricky, with me coming in at dinnertime Friday.
Hey, you go right ahead and skip out to see Billy. I understand completely. Besides, Rakshi and I will costume up on Saturday. We probably won't have all the gear (rucksacks, walking sticks, etc.) but you'll be able to take photos anytime. The band should be fun!
I do have your number and have just programmed it into my phone. Mine number changed; I'll email it to you right now. Let me know if you don't get it.
Have a safe flight and see you next weekend!!!!
Great - I'll take that as promise that you WILL pose for me - muahahaha!!! *G*
Having seen the schedule now up for ORC, I apologize profusely for guessing so strongly and utterly incorrectly about Friday's activities. I shall never guess again about Creation in a way that might cost anyone money.
I am so sorry.
No, no, no! I appreciated your guess, and I would have guessed exactly the same! My problem was that I forgot that they had ANY programming on Friday; somehow I thought it was a Friday night to Sunday afternoon thing. Not too smart, considering I've been there twice before. But it's very sweet of you to apologize.
And, don't worry - I ended up deciding not to get the revised ticket, and just go standby instead. Which I still may do!
