Zachary Quinto at Starfest: Pictures 
8th-May-2008 10:14 pm
ZQ glasses
You know how I keep saying "I'm going to write up a bit about seeing Zachary Quinto at Starfest" and never get around to it?

...this isn't that write-up. But the folks who ran the convention have photo galleries up now and there is a metric buttload of pictures of him. (That's a very precise, scientific measurement in Ohio, by the way. Just like BFE is a very precise, scientific description of distance. But I digress.)  The photos have credits on them and the folks who ran this convention were very nice, so if you use the pics, please be nice back and give them credit.  Also, if you go up to the main gallery, there are pics of Masi Oka and Adam Baldwin and Nichelle Nichols and Nana Visitor and, oh, everyone.

I am heartened in looking at these pictures because they were taken by folks who were far more professional than me and yet there is still plenty of blurriness.  I'm telling you, the man will not hold still. 

I think this big happy smile is my favorite...

He did say that the Star Trek wrap party was the night before. And he talked about how he was probably the luckiest person in the business because he started filming ST the day that the writers' strike forced production on Heroes to shut down, and then he got the first new Heroes script the day that they finished filming ST. So I'm guessing that they were still being plucked and waxed a few days before his appearance. (In person, though, his eyes are so huge that I could barely focus on the eyebrows. Especially since he was seated and therefore looking up at me, which made them look even more huge...)

You know, at one point in his Q&A, he made some comment about how he knows that his eyebrows are a huge part of his face and "...very...important...to some people". I was like, sweetie, just tell us we're crazy freaks. We won't mind. :0)

Oh he's so full of crap they're just as important to him. He said he was going to have them shave them, and not wax or pluck, because he didn't want to destroy the root.

Anyway, you are such a tease with your con report. Someday....

OK, you know what's REALLY funny? The email with your comment prompted GoogleAds to display all kinds of links like "Eyebrow Hair Loss Remedy" and "Eyebrow Threading Classes" and "Fake Eyebrow Wigs". Talk about ROTFLMAO...

I'd be willing to bet the makeup artists told him shaving was Not An Option. I was close friends in college with an Italian guy and I swear, he'd shave at 8 am and by lunch his face would be so bristle-y, you could brush hair with it.

I've really got to post something. I promised to talk about KITH, too! I am just...I don't know, scattered and feeling crappy all the time. Usually I pick up energy in the spring, but as it is, I haven't even bothered to get out the gardening tools. Besides not being able to concentrate on writing or at work, I just don't feel good most of the time (today I feel kind of hungover despite the fact that I wasn't drinking last night). I'm starting to think I need to go get a physical and bloodwork.

Ha ha - I got those Ads on your email too. Well, at least we know ZQ can turn to Eyebrow Wigs now. Like we wouldn't be able to spot those.

It sucks that you're not in the mood to post. Maybe it's a phase, and hopefully it's not anything major, and maybe you just need more sunshine... or sleep. Weekend's almost here!

Thanks! :0) What really sucks about this is that I'm actually in the mood to post. I WANT to be writing stuff. But physically, I'm like a big amorphous blob. I sit down in front of the keyboard with something in my mind that I want to write about, I'll have entire paragraphs composed in my head, but I can't get it out of my head onto the paper. I had the computer open for two hours last night and only managed to write a half-page. Usually I associate that with being a little depressed, but I feel fine mentally (other than the frustration of not accomplishing anything).

I bought a giant amount of plants at the plant sale last night, though, and I need to go get more tomorrow. (The growing season up here doesn't last long and the rule of thumb is "don't plant anything before Mother's Day because it still might frost"...which means that Mother's Day weekend, we all rush out to the garden centers so that we can get the flowers going ASAP.) So I am hoping that being forced to get outside into the sunshine will get me moving again.

But didn't filming start May 1st? What if they're not back? ;_; LOL, I'm very anxious about this.

HEE. It's hilarious that he apparently knows all about the whole legend of the Sybrows. Ohman.

OK, now I'm hoping they open season 3 with a total crack scene, where Mohinder runs into Sylar, screws up his face and goes, "Oooooh...what happened to your eyebrows?"

It's hilarious that he apparently knows all about the whole legend of the Sybrows.

SRSLY. I was like, well, I guess it doesn't matter that we never sent our cracky comments in to J.J. Abrams, because apparently his friends drew his attention to it!

AHAHAHA THAT WOULD BE AMAZING. Whatever plot contrivance they had to create to explain away the vanished eyebrows would be hilarious, as would Sylar's reaction - and the reactions of everyone he came across. They'd have to be cracky about it, too.
9th-May-2008 10:37 pm (UTC)
Ooooh!!! And then when he ran into Peter and Peter started giggling, Sylar would get pissed off enough to do something to him that even Peter couldn't completely heal from, and he'd wind up with that scar across his face!!! IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!!!!

This is the most logical explanation for that plothole that I've ever come across! Genius! Genius!
9th-May-2008 10:51 pm (UTC)
OK. Now my brain is imagining a re-do of a certain scene from season 2, only with Sylar standing over Peter's freshly-dead corpse while Mohinder knocks at his door. I am just going to shut the hell up now. And go home and hide away before I become a danger to myself or others...
