Movie Meltdown: Rose McIver and the Dragon Con Life
This week our Atlanta adventures continue as we talk to iZombie’s Rose McIver as well as give a general wrap-up of this year’s Dragon Con. And along the way, we try to decide just how much this modern, pop-culture friendly world has affected the lives of the different generations of fans.
And while we try to figure out just which one of us is the token weirdo, we also cover… A Christmas Prince, David Bowie, Scoops Ahoy, that’s how you relate emotionally to the world, the journey of the relationship, an uncharted road, Dungeons & Dragons brain, straddling the generations, the most surreal thing, speak the same geek language, this gave her purpose, building a sandcrawler, David Lynch, a sweet holiday movie, of the same ilk, the world’s gotten bigger and scarier, the parade, load up the eggnog and get ready for another one guys, Jessica Harmon, being a freak, going into the tickle trunk, celebrating what makes you odd, if Liv ate Tinkerbell’s brain, a white lace front wig with a revealed hairline, going catatonic, human interaction, 500 hours of a George Romero zombie movie, the new Lord of the Rings, being friends as well as being partners, made of Popsicle sticks, Malcolm Goodwin, in the middle of downtown it looked like an Imperial invasion, you retreat into a fantasy world, Queen Amber of Aldovia, born to multitask, inferior Liv, hopeful bitter old man, people want to watch something that makes them feel good, transcendental meditation and DJ Vader.
“If you asked my 12-year-old self… what would be the ideal situation – it’s probably Dragon Con.”
