My friend Kris Kidd is the promoter of Texas ComiCon, which is the home of The Con Cast. He is a great guy.

There, Kris. I did what you wanted. Now pay up!

All kidding aside, Texas ComiCon is a wonderful annual event in San Antonio and I always have a blast. At Staple!, I spoke with Kris about 2014’s show, and he gave a lot of good info.

ALSO, there’s a scoop hidden in the interview! I always get one scoop a year from Kris about an upcoming guest, and this year is no different. But, ya gotta listen to find out who it is!

Kris and I go back a couple of years, and we tend to get off topic. When we get to the point where we are having two different conversations with two different people, please, remember, we’re guys!

Go to http://www.texascomicon.com for even more info!

Also, Fanboy TV and One Of Us were both there interviewing as well. Go check them out at http://www.fanboytv.com and http://www.oneofus.net.

I got the chance to talk to Valerie Perrine at Texas Comicon! I didn’t manage to conduct much of an interview, though. What I ended up recording was me being a guy in the presence of an extraordinarily beautiful woman.

Just call me fanboy!

Charles Fleischer has appeared in too many productions for me to list, so look him up on http://www.imdb.com.

You will probably know him as the voice of Roger Rabbit in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?”, but those of us, ahem, a little older remember him from Welcome Back, Kotter, Barney Miller, and the theatrical release of Dick Tracy.

It was an absolute blast meeting and talking with Mr. Fleischer. He is very intelligent and quite passionate about being healthy. The convention volunteer who was acting as his assistant on Friday unexpectedly joined the conversation.

You can follow him on Twitter – @chasfleischer.
