The talent behind the band TWIZTID originated the idea and gave back to the community that supported them by putting on their own pop culture convention . The fans came out in droves and had a great time . There was a wedding and a pop culture game show put on by Loose Cannons Entertainment called Fandom Madness that had a celebrity version .The big winners were Ming Chen and Mike Zapzic of Comic Book Men TV Show fame. I guessed they would have won for once I was right .Hidden in plain site was Ricky Rat the bass player for famed punk band ” The Dead Boys “.

One of my personal favorites was Tiny Lister from Friday and The Fifth Element fame who proved being a bad guy in films means your a nice family guy in real life . This guy made the con one of my favorites just by his attitude .
