I'll be going to Dragon Con this weekend (Friday though Monday). It's located in Atlanta. It's the largest southeast sci-fi/fantasy/TV/movie/gaming/etc convention. Anyone else going?

Cool!


Caitlin R. Kiernan one of my favorite new writers will be there. As will Harlan Ellison, I mean how freaking cool is that!

Too bad I won't be there for it Posted Image

Here's a link to Dragon Con if anyone else is interested in seeing what's going on this weekend. It's one of the only "24 hour" conventions where people staying at the hotel run wild for all 4 days. Posted Image

Heh...

Every SF convention I've been to have been pretty much "24 hours" of running wild.

I've managed the two of the SimuCon events, which are pretty much four straight days of partying. My biggest worry was people getting sick. Two years ago, I spent most of my time calling for an ambulance Posted Image

I do find it funny that many of the con-goers stay up all day/night by woofing down the free Pepsi and popcorn at the con suite at all hours of the con. Posted Image

Dragon Con... truly one of the most frightening experiences for the "non gamer" in the world. Being stuck in a gathering place with swarms of Dungeons and Dragons players who are attempting to hit the person next to them with a 30 point fireball, or the mob of people speaking Klingon to each other, and to top it off, none of them have showered in the past 30 days.

Reminds me of all the Magic: The Gathering Pro Tours, Grand Prix, PTQs, prerelease tourneys, etc... that we used to go to Posted Image

Now it's not that bad. Some of us go for the odd movies we can't see in our Podunk town of Athens (which we do get some, but not enough) and Elberton. Posted Image Granted I do shower daily, but, it seems, (to quote one of the more revered on this forum) the unwashed masses do seem to make up quite a bit of the mass. I just like hanging out with my friends. And some not so friends.

P.S. I think Iron Monkey will be showing on Saturday. How's that for enjoyable! Posted Image

I'm hoping this cold I just picked up doesn't affect my stamina in chasing down all the appearances of the "stars". I still can't believe I snapped over 1600 digi-photos last year. I do not intend on topping that number this year. If I get half as many, I'll be happy.

Well, Dragon Con has come and gone. My right knee is killing me from all the walking around. The dealer's room was way too small (and the aisles got really crowded on Saturday and Sunday). The Walk of Fame was also too small a space, and it was awfully hot with all those bodies in the room trying to make their way to the actors/actresses from many fan-pleasing sci-fi/fantasy TV shows and films. But many of the panels were a riot (if you ever get a chance to attend a convention that has Harlan Ellison there, go to all of his panels, well worth the cost of admission). The Babylon 5 panel was pretty good (the cast members seems to have a good time with each other and their stories are quite humorous).

I think I managed to take only 800-900 photos, and have begun the process of organizing them, so one of these weeks, I'll be able to post a link to all of the photos once I upload them to my webspace. Stay tuned.

There's nothing quite like a hoard of geeks taking over a hotel for a weekend. They used to do a "Radcon" thing here. I never went, but a lot of people I knew did. I've heard enough wild stories about these geek conventions to decide that I will never attend one despite the fact that I, too, am a proud geek. (although I take showers on a daily basis, shave, and get my hair cut when necessary, so that really makes me an outcast in the eyes of my fellow geeks)

Hey man, if you see me there say hey! I'll be the guy wearing the t-shirt that says, 'I will not instigate revolution' and carrying a helmet.
Hope to see you there!

The new issue of The Onion has a DragonCon story. Going to a party where people chat about comics and listen to my favorite They Might Be Giants album sounds like a good time to me, though. Posted Image
