"VICE travels to Atlanta to attend Dragon Con, a two-day bacchanalian orgy of sci-fi and comic book fans going bananas in the city's hotel rooms. We dive deep into the chaos with hundreds of cos-play and sci-fi fans, and then get arrested for talking to Carrie Fisher from Star Wars."

Great Video.  and Funny/Disappointing ending. 

It was great to see the perspective of a first time D*Con goer, as it was my first time this year too.  though my run ins with Celebs didnt lead to such... distasterous results.  Bumped into a drunk Edward James Olmos, had a passing word with Wil Wheaton, and a few other friendly encounters.

From the looks of it though, Im excited for being in a host hotel in 2012.  granted from the looks of it, I wont be sleeping (at least sleeping less than the minimal amount i got in 2011).

kind of a shame to see D*C staff acting like a bunch of psychos like that.  Someone managed to get a comment out of the crazy guy who stormed their interview with those two totally unsuspecting guys: http://www.adweek.com/news/television/vice-reporter-roughed-after-trying-talk-carrie-fisher-136214

I get they where a little upset with. But to come find after words and attack you like that. Man i just lost a little bit of respect for The con staff . Its like they gave you a lecture ask you to leave the area . just to run you down like its not dragon con. The same place . That i had Stan lee scream Doom and run from me in my Dr.Doom costume. Then later that night have a drunk will weaton Hug me at random because he liked it to. Why are dressed that way. really where going to go there . at dragon con. In the words of CAPT James Hook.
