Just got back from Comic-Con and boy are my cyber-genetic mutated zombie-chewed digitally-altered vampire-ninja arms tired.

In the short time I was there, I saw:

Sara Silverman, having lunch with several other TV comedians, before putting on a wig and sunglasses to leave incognito? Or as some kind of weird performance art?

Carlton Cuse & Damon Lindelof, the exec. producers of "Lost", standing around a Dharma Initiative booth, acting all smug like they're actually gonna wrap this whole thing up logically in 40 something more episodes... We'll see, guys...

Simon Pegg, aka Shaun of the Dead aka the new Star Trek's Scotty, introducing his old British TV show, "Spaced". It was funny, but the poor sound system and British humor was bloody hard to comprehend sometimes.

Judd Apatow and his wife Leslie Mann, on the streets of San Diego, twice, and despite the fact that my fiancee and I have said hi to them on the streets of Burbank, I didn't greet them again as if we were old friends from Long Island.

Gabriel Macht, star of upcoming The Spirit, who I actually met through family friends last week at Morty's funeral, is an extremely nice guy, and ran into at the same restaurant at which Sara Silverman was chowing down and dressing up.

A few filmmaker/comic book writer/artists friends, promoting their new comix, and equally as overwhelmed by all the other artists there selling theirs.

Hundreds of costumed crazies, most of them dressed like the Joker. Expect a million of 'em come Halloween.

JustJenn, who had her own booth 'cause she's crafty, gets around, crafty and always down. And she was selling some very neat stuff, but most importantly, proving that there are some cool people among all these geeks.

And did I mention the lucky geek? Just before I left, I got to interview Carmen Electra and Kim Kardashian. Who knew the dweeboramic Comic-Con could be so babealicous & asstastic?
