First off I want to thank Brock Parker, Jaime Hitchcock, Dan Harshman, AJ Quick, Savann Mok, and Nando for their help with this year's Surge, Ernie Hudson for his attendance, Loren Baldwin for bringing his beautiful '59, and everyone who helped at the table and joined in on the fun!

Image

The official count in the parade was 85 including marchers, drivers, and passengers and as usual during the course of the con we all met new ghostheads who were suited up but unaware of PKE Surge or GBfans.

At one point Michael Rooker who plays "Merle" from "The Walking Dead" suited up and both wore the suit in his own panel, and a suit and pack for a visit with Ernie!

Image

So PLEASE feel free to share YOUR pics, videos, and stories of PKE Surge 2013 (especially the stuff from the scavenger hunt!)

Michael Rooker is a big Ghostbusters fan. We ran into him at X-Con in Myrtle Beach this summer. He was too busy for an interview, but ended up showing up right at the end of the podcast and crashing in on an interview with Bob Camp!

Classic line from Rooker, "When Merle is in trouble, he calls the Ghostbusters!

The interview is in segment 5.

Also rounding up some pics to post as well.

It was great spending time with Ernie again. We also got to induct Maurice LaMarche into our franchise as an honorary member!

Image

But the best part was he and Rob Paulsen got to help two of our members, Robert and Tiffany, become engaged!

Had an absolutely incredible time even though the parade completely wore me out after being out till 3am on Friday. I slept through the dinner, but I'll make it next year...maybe. Here is a few pictures of me and my lady...and my Winston.

First of all, PKE Surge was awesome! Every year I have fun attending and every year it gets bigger and better. The Zappa Kappa Trappa Initiation was ridiculously fun!


First off, I went a little crazy with the "Yes Have Some" challenge:


Then, while trying to find twinkies at a CVS, I ran in to the hilarious Chap-Hop artist, Professor Elemental, The Gentleman Rhymer:
Image

Ran into a couple of zombies:
Image

Went up 12 flights of stairs with people giving me odd looks:


Got a wonderful artist to do a sketch of me that is now on my wall:
Image

And took my picture with some of the coolest people I got to hang out with during the con:
Image

And:
Image

I'm already waiting for next year to come around! Thanks for a damn fine weekend!

Since I was in the parade, I pretty much only got pics of my boy, Henson. But here he is in the Camaro with Ernie.

I got to drunk to do much of anything! This was my first DC I was looking forward to the parade but sadly I was still asleep and missed the damn thing!

Still going through my photos and am currently brainstorming ways to improve my castings for the awards. (They are still fun to make and I'm so glad everyone is still diggin' 'em. YOU GUYS MAKE ME HAPPY.)

For now, though, please enjoy what I call a most unfortunate photo op.

Image

Image

The story behind this: After the parade, our Peoplebuster leaned against the wall at the Marriott and the stopper on his slime pack broke off. I spotted it and ran over to try to stop it from leaking too much, then helped him de-pack and get the thing on the ground. It made it through the parade, that was the main thing, but boy, did we bemoan the leakage of ectoplasm everywhere.

Bright sides:

- Funny photo op for my Slimer puppet
- It made that corner smell less like urine and more like green apples. SO FRESH!
- He got this year's NJYD award. XD

I'll get some more pics posted later. I had a lot of fun with you guys, as always. Thanks for letting me continue to participate!

Just a bump in case anyone else has anything and also a reminder of how much we've grown.

A year before Surge started some of us Georgia guys decided we'd have a "strong showing" in the parade...here we are. (Thats me with the wooden pack with pie pan cyclotron and film canisters...with the hardware store goggles on my face)

Image

I've already been in contact with folks for next year....planning staff is in place and we're getting a list together of GB related folks we'd like to invite to the DragonCon staff.

Oh btw...the official staff were VERY pleased by our attendance, and the numbers they brought in for the panels this year. That and the fact that next year is the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters means that Dragon Con 2014 will be an event NOT to be missed!

Awesome pictures for the whole con, Tito. (And I'm more than amused by the meme brought on by your picture of Steven Granade.)

Before I forget, here are this year's PKE Surge Award winners!

Image

I have already started work on molds for next year's awards, since my poor little original Crunch bar mold has finally bit the dust. After pulling that many candy bar castings (good and bad) over three years, I'd say it's done well. Also, I'm set for It The Car for a few years to come and there's a new NJYD already prepped.

Oh yeah, and next year's D*C membership has already been purchased. See you guys there, right?
