SDCC PSA OMG

I had a massive linkspam (with things not about the show, even) ready to go, and then other things happened and I got busy (I've completely fallen behind on the Pacific Rim discussion, sorry about that) and now I have to revise it again both to add things and to weed out the obsolete/time-sensitive things. So I'm just going to table that for a moment and give you the immediate stuff:

SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON! ppyajunebug will be at the Hannibal panel tonight (6:45 pm West Coast time?) and live-blogging it, if all goes well, under the tag "pannibal." (That's specifically for her tumblr; this will take you to the Tumblr-wide tag.) Which is also the hashtag the official NBC Hannibal twitter is using--#pannibal, because we are the fandom that rhymes whenever possible.

@DireRavenstag: I might have to stop by #SDCC, though. I mean, all that delusion and dementia in one giant room? How could I miss that?

@DireRavenstag: If even one fucking elf tries to ride me, tho.... #NotYourPartyMoose #SDCC

Also, I am personally putting money on Lee Pace being officially announced for Mason Verger, given this tweet, although David Tennant is an extremely likely guess, given that they've also talked about having him on.

@DireRavenstag: I see you eyeing me, half-assed Thranduil cosplayer. Don't even think about it. #SDCC


Unfortunately, the Emmy nominations were a gigantic whiff this morning. Even the tech categories. Also, I haven't even watched Orphan Black yet, and I'm appalled that they ignored Tatiana Maslany.

@HitFixDaniel: It's like this: None of the shows nominated for cinematography are bad, but none of them are "Hannibal."


Meanwhile, Miss Freddie has posted interviews with both food stylist Janice Poon, who is delightful ("He is an international man of mystery and there are many styles of cuisine that he can threaten you with") and Lara Jean Chorostecki, who is ACTUAL FREDDIE, THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Seriously, both interviews are amazing.

Meanwhile-meanwhile... character posters for NBC Dracula. That's a thing that's happening. I think my two favorite reblog comments so far are "Lisa Frank Vampires Okay Sure Lets Go With That" and "Holy shit look at Dracula’s kaleidoscope myspace wolves." Guys... I promised to recap it if the universe would get Hannibal renewed for us. I'm scared, guys. It's dark and cold and badly Photoshopped in here.

While you are waiting to hear about various SDCC shenanigans going into the weekend, may I suggest A Matter of Taste's latest episode on Manhunter? I'll be on next week for the Silence of the Lambs episode, which we recorded a couple of nights ago. }:D

...oh my God, the kaleidoscope myspace wolves weren't a joke.

Well, I mean. They *are*. But you weren't invoking the general idea of kaleidoscope myspace wolves to make a joke about the ~visual atmosphere~ of the poster, you were just...commenting on the undeniable fact of the existence of ACTUAL KALEIDOSCOPE MYSPACE WOLVES IN THE POSTER. o.O

It's not so much a joke as "literal statement of what you are observing," albeit in the most amusing way possible because KALEIDOSCOPE MYSPACE WOLVES.

My little brother wants to stake whoever was responsible for them for crimes against Photoshop and Jpegs. I mean, just... OH MY GOD. How did anyone in the process of greenlighting those posters not take one look and go "Do we really need all this horizontal symmetry? Were these bees really necessary? Are you SURE?"

Speaking as an unemployed graphic design major I can't decide if those Dracula posters give me hope that my crap can compete with professional Photoshop Abuse or make me depressed because these designs got made in the first place.

Why not both? Both is good. You can be depressed they were made and still hopeful that you can do better. At the very least, they make for excellent case studies in what NOT to do.

I'm still confused about the significance of the bees.

Maybe she (I think it's Mina, knowing nothing about what approach they're going for here) is a beekeeper all of a sudden?

Or maybe it represents how Mina is being assimilated into the brides.

Or midway through it all turns into a homage to the Nicholas Cage remake of The Wicker Man. Honestly, looking at those posters, I have no idea what they're supposed to mean except for the kaleidoscopic Myspace wolves and Seward's stuff. (I mean, I'm assuming it's him. The beetles could be a reference to Renfield or something, and Van Helsing's supposed to be much older as his mentor so it shouldn't be him, but nothing about these posters actually make sense.)

Even after everyone's comments, I was still unprepared for those posters. Wowzers.

Same.
And my irresistible thought on the first, upon further consideration, was "wait, is this DRACULA or TESLA?"

My first thought was, "Wait, are they going to say that Tesla was actually Dracula or something?"

Also, I do believe that this would be a big fat 'F' in graphic design class, wouldn't it? It's... juvenile.

Yea - I'm trying to imagine anyone in my graphic design classes turning that in with a straight face and I can't.


Admittedly, Vampire Tesla would be awesome. But not if he's Dracula. Dracula doesn't get to build the cool death rays.

Also it's the kind of concept that really can't be taken at all seriously.

Sanctuary's vampire Tesla would agree with you. I'm pretty sure he's never taken anything seriously in his life. :-D

No one can ever be prepared for those posters.
