The convention noticeably grows larger every year, with being the largest gathering in the convention's history.
The laid-back nature means that Spill Dot Con is mainly a get-together and fan appreciation party for Spill.

Less than a year after the film's release, Ryan Dunn was killed while driving under influence. Recently he commented on a news article where they said that it was going to be just that. The film is called Goodie Too Shoes. No, they said this one's called Disaster Movie.
That's because they're full of shit. The movie is called Goodie Too Shoes. Beau used to go on rage filled rants about video gamesnow he works at a video game company and happily claims it to be the best job he ever had! During their review of Punisher: War Zonethe crew joked about the idea of a zombified Frank Castle punishing the guilty, a full year before Marvel introduced Franken-Castle.
Professor Jeff, who normally plays the goody two shoes hero by himself becomes a most magnificent bastard during Happy Hour. I'm not normally like this when I'm by myself, but when I can tell people how to play, I say things like 'set that guy on fire!
