greetings from the south  
Hello from Kitakyushu, in southern Japan!

If you travel much with a computer, even if it's a laptop with perfectly working wireless inside, I recommend a usb extension cable and a usb wireless adapter. I didn't get a signal inside the hotel here until I let the usb adaptor hang out the window. You can even find Mac drivers for most of those if you hunt around a bit.

So, here is a mock-up of my party room flier, in case you are interested. I was kind of going for a 50's thriller type poster look, though it would help if I find a better font for that effect. I wrote most of it on the train. Most trains here have vending machines and payphones, but no power outlets or wireless internet.

Edit: edited the flier with Haunt AOE font and corrected Doctor Who entries.

Edit again: a version with Japanese titles added. I'm a little iffy on some of the translations. Maybe I'll get my friend here to help out. :)

Eek! I never did copy The Zombie Legions and Those Darn Daleks to DVD! The only format in which we have them is VHS. Do you still want me to bring them?

Yes, please do. I have arranged to purchase a used VCR through Tokyo Craigslist before the party.

Do you have approximate running times handy? :) Would be nice to throw together a tentative schedule. Thanks!

Replied in e-mail. (For the benefit of onlookers: I saw Todd's LJ posting before seeing the e-mail he sent me with the question.)

"Scentinels"? Does the clip come with some sort of scent device? ;)

Heehee. It was a parody of Robotech II: The Sentinels, and how much it, well, stank.

But you might be onto something there...

EitE, now in Japan(ese)!
Wow, really nice to see that on the flier. I'm fairly certain that nobody has ever translated the EitE name/description into Japanese before. (It looks like that's phonetic...?)

What's the wacky visual-code in the lower right corner?

P.S.: Hmm, how expensive are those USB wireless adapters? I have a ~6' USB ext cable around my house somewhere...
