Well, on Tuesday I'll be off for Botcon down in Texas.

I won't be back until next Tuesday. So you'll be rid of me for a week. Have fun ya'll. Smile

BTW, for those who don't know what Botcon is, here:

http://www.botcon.com/

And if you are going...well...

Look for the man in the Green Lantern Baseball jersey with Final Fantasy pins on it. And a Wolfs Dragoon symbal hanging from his belt. And maybe wearing an Indiana Jones hat. That would be me...Smile

I shall try.

Is there anything you want me to pick up for you while I'm there?

Have fun...I'm sure that's more than a little investment for you to make the trip.

Yeah...just a bit.

A new company is running it this year as opposed to previous years and the new guys charge more. My bank account bawled when the charge hit it just for the signing up fee.

Now I get to drive down and stay in hotels. Sad

Hence the 'Changing Gears' theme, I guess.

Exactly.

3H Productions has run BotCon for years.

About four years ago, one of the three partners in 3H took over from the other two because they weren't pulling their weight.

That set off a series of nasty years where supporters of the two that got removed threatened to kill the guy in charge, his wife, his kids, his pets, and generally made life a living hell for him.

Hasbro didn't want something like dividing the Transformers community and did not renew 3H Production's license to do Transformers stuff.

They gave it to the company that has done their GI Joe conventions for years, hence the "Changing Gears" theme.

Hmmmm....now, I'm a Joe fan (have been since I was 11, many moons ago). I've heard of the Botcons, but never a Joe con.

Got an address for those (by any chance)?

Well, I'm on my way back from Botcon now...

I've had a lot of fun, seen and talked to a lot of great people...

And I'm generally very tired.

But dang...there was one young japanese lady (looked to be in her twenties by asians often look younger than they are) dressed up in a School Girl outfit. That...is cruel. Going to a convention that is frequented by people who watch a lot of Anime dressed up like that.

Wow...that takes guts...Wink

Laughing

Yeah.

Of course, with all the way that guys have been threatened with lawsuits of sexual harrassment for even LOOKING at a girl in the current culture, nobody said a bloody thing as far as I could see.

Except the Japanese that were there. They were all over her asking to have pictures taken with her and stuff. And her American boyfriend was totally clueless.

Laughing
