I attended its first show of the year, which was held at the beautiful Loews Hollywood Hotel, which is located in the Hollywood & Highland Center, smacked dabbed in the middle of Hollywood! Just in case you didn't noticed, I was knee deep in Hollywood!
The convention itself was incredible! In the main room, there were excellent merchandise from all over Hollywood's past: posters, lobby cards, 8x10 glossies, rare collectibles, and so forth. Plus it was where the all the famous celebrities were. I got to meet the cast of THE KARATE KID and the cast of PORKY'S, Clint Howard, Joey Lauren Adams from CHASING AMY and DAZED AND CONFUSED, Tim Conway, Playmate of the Year Sara Underwood, John Schneider from The Dukes of Hazard, Ed Asner & Gavin Macleod from The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Kristy McNichol and Christopher Atkins from THE PIRATE MOVIE, video vixen Bobbie Brown from Warrant's "Chery Pie" video (check out her new book Dirty Rocker Boys), just to name a few!
But the main reason I wanted to attend this show was that for the first time the producers were holding a Legends of Erotica section. Here they gathered some of the most famous actors and actresses from the golden age of adult cinema! Here I got to meet Kay Parker, Amber Lynn, Nina Hartley, Seka, Richard Pacheco, Veronica Hart, my old friend Ginger Lynn, and of course Ron Jeremy! I also got to meet two of the biggest icons in the adult industry: Jenna Jameson and Tera Patrick!!
Also appearing the Legends room was Robert "Cropsy" Rhine, editor and founder of the excellent magazine Girls and Corpses! I also had the pleasure of meeting up and coming author Wendy Richards, whose debut book Swing N2 My World is a real joy to read!
