ROFLCon May 4/5

This weekend, I will be at ROFLCon, May 4-5, 2012, at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts!  I will be speaking on a panel on Saturday, and issue 1 will be for sale at the guests' vendor table.  The guest lineup is choc full of youtube stars and internet scientists!

Ganked from panel announcement:

The Titans of Fangirl Culture
11 AM on Saturday, Track C (Schedule)

"Continuing our panel shout-outs in the run up to ROFLCon, we’re very happy today that thanks to the combined tireless efforts of the brilliant Flourish Klink and Kimberly Chang, we’ve brought together the titans of fangirl culture for a mega panel featuring:

They’ll be talking fan culture, the hermeneutics of Livejournal, and gender and fandom in the wild and wooly spaces of the internets. Panel is kicking us off on Saturday morning next week. Excited to have them aboard!"

Anime Boston Report, ROFLcon Next!

Woo!  What a ride!  Anime Boston was amazing, as always!  Met some fans, sold some comics, and reveled in all the Tiger & Bunny, No.6, Sailor Moon, and Revolutionary Girl Utena love.

JShea and I had a rad time, spent most of our time sitting at our tables in the Arist Alley.  But when I did get to escape (besides that quick jaunt to the dealers room to secure me some Kevin Bolk swag and, I kid you not, an actual animation cel from the Nick cartoon Doug [be still my heart]) I was poking around the rest of the alley as best I could.

Sakky was kind enough to stop by and buy an original off of me, though I repeatedly failed to make contact with her for the rest of the con until we were both exhaustedly packed up and heading home.  I managed to score three of the masterpieces on this beautiful catalogue from the wildly talented Yutaan.  Had some excellent chatty-chats and secured a sketch commission from the super-cool TacoFiesta.  Saw the ever-precious Tina Pratt, promised to buy a copy of the new Paul Reveres book and proceeded to forget (oh God forgive me forgive me I'll get one at MECAF I swear!)  Oh, oh!  And then I saw JD, of Mahou Shounen Fight! magic and that rocked like 900 of my socks because OMG MSF!  I also hassled ever talented Gina Biggs, but alas, she is super cool and will not remember me.

Soooooo awesome.

Anyway, what's next?  I finally get a little breather, and then I am off to ROFLcon at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts On May 4-5!  I wont be exhibiting, but I will be speaking on a panel about Fangirl Culture.  I'll post more details about that soon.  I will also have copies of PoC available for purchase in some informal capacity.  More on that later, too.  This is going to be a wild con- have you seen the guest list? Chuck freaking Testa will be there, along with the Vegan Black Metal Chef and the lovely lady from My Drunk Kitchen.  And the Double Rainbow Guy!! WOW!  It's like Youtube has burst ceremoniously into the real world and confronted us with the beautiful faces behind the screen.  I'm excited!

Thanks for a lovely weekend, to everyone who I saw, annoyed, bought from, sold to, geeked out with, and facilitated my being there.
