A short reflection on my first trip to the epicenter of geek fandom:
Every once in a while you get a win. Like a panel featuring the cast of the 1960s Batman TV show, for example. I grew up watching the reruns with my brother, and there was something undeniably cool about seeing Adam West and Burt Ward tell old stories from the set. Julie Newmar, one of the actresses who played Catwoman, is there, and at one point West says to her: "You gave me curious stirrings in my utility belt." Everyone laughs, thinking about Adam West’s old boner. A fan asks if there were any double entendres he couldn’t get away with, and West recalls a time he ad-libbed: "Don’t touch that golden pussy, Robin — it could be radioactive!"
