Stop me before I volunteer again...  
At Conjecture last weekend (which was a lot of fun... I should post on that too), browsing the fan tables, I seemed to vaguely remember something about Conzilla (Westercon next year in San Diego) needing someone to run the anime room.

Silly me... I inquired as to whether they needed someone.

Before I knew it, I had volunteered to run the anime room at Conjecture, and at ConDor.

ConDor is March 3-5 in San Diego, and the guest of honor in 2006 will be Christopher Stasheff, which has me wanting to try ConDor anyway. Yes, I've never been to ConDor, and I'm running the anime room. It's a small to medium con from what I know of it, and ideas for daily themes and overnight marathons are already running through my head.

Conzilla is the 59th Westercon. They want to go with a science fiction theme for the anime room, which should be pretty cool. I'll bet I can throw in some fantasy too, and maybe Scrapped Princess (both).

I will probably be driving to both so I can drag equipment and people with me. If they don't cover a sleeping room for us, I'll cover all or most of that. Who wants to help run an anime room or two? :)

man, I need to move to Cali for more cons. . .

Yes, you do. I would choose the SF Bay Area or maybe the L.A. area (depending on your smog tolerance). San Diego is also a nice place.

They all have plenty of good SF cons.

The Bay Area has Yaoicon and Fanime and Anime Overdose. L.A. area has Anime Los Angeles (one of my all-time favorites) and Anime Expo. San Diego has Comic Con.

for conzilla - stellvia would work well :D

I might be able to help, we'll see :D

That was the first one that came to mind! Too bad the subs on the DVDs are less than optimal. It's still quite enjoyable.

There are plenty of good SF/Fantasy series and movies out there. Help is good :D

At least you can spend time with your gf, if you're in SD?
ashi: mayuashi on October 10th, 2005 11:58 am (UTC)
Yes. I was planning to go to Westercon anyway. Maybe she can visit me in the anime room some and be exposed to more anime... :D

Running an anime room like that sounds like a wonderful way to spend a weekend!

You should come help! But I know it would take you longer to fly than it will take me to drive...

Are you taking me out this Friday? Let's plan something... but I might have to cancel, because I'm sick and if I'm still sick on Friday, I want to take the day off.
ashi: ashi.comashi on October 12th, 2005 06:02 pm (UTC)
Yes, this Friday, 10am usual spot? Comment or something if you need to cancel.
