New party organization  
I like to throw room parties at cons. They tend to follow my usual party theme... anime, movies, games, DDR, food and beverage, and trying to entertain people.

I've been asked in the past what group I represent. Sure, I'm involved with the W-Dreamers fansub group, and I've done parody fan dubs (and thrown parties) under the name Zero Productions, but nothing that quite fits with the parties I like to throw.

So, I'd like to start an informal organization mostly to have a name to give when I host a room party. All I really need is a name, and to invite those of you who have helped with my parties (or anyone who wants to really) to join.

One of my goals is to try to unite anime and science fiction/fantasy fandom, so that could factor into the name. Most anime cons of recent years have been huge, plagued with long lines, and lacking in some basic amenities that sf/f cons have had for years, like con suites (Anime Los Angeles being a notable and welcome exception). Most of them don't even have room parties, but we could lobby to change that.

I would also be willing to throw some combined parties that also promote other groups.

If you have a name suggestion and/or wish to join, please reply.

My goals for this group so far:

1. To throw fun parties, at cons or otherwise.

2. To unite, on some level, various fandoms, especially anime and science fiction/fantasy.

3. To provide something a little different to people's convention experience, and to attempt to accomodate special needs.

Feel free to suggest additions or changes.

Being a girl, I object to being in a brotherhood., and ofter the more geeky International Silly Beings of Nyo, ISBN. (chuckles) We can Even all have our own ISBN number (Ducks from books being thrown at me by people that know what ISBN numbers are) :}

You know, IBN made me think of IBM, and then ISBN.
*Throws ISBN 1592400663 and ISBN 4088564162 at you*

You know, this is my favorite idea so far...

without looking, a can guess the first is a manga, not sure about the second. 159 is comics though, usually. :} (goes to look them up)

You know, we could each choose a book and associated ISBN number for a member number too...

TASFPG: The Anime Science Fiction Party Group
JASFF: Japanimation and Science Fiction Fans :)

Heck, Japanimation USA, lol.

The Anime Science Fiction Fantasy Association
would be TASFFA, which is pronouncable at least...
the Chickthechick on February 22nd, 2005 12:47 pm (UTC)
I was just making suggestions because nobody had. I do like the TASFFA though or we can come up with some word we like and make an acronym that fits it. I am personally fond of the word CLITORIS.

oo ouch
We're sci-fi fans here too.. we should remember that CLITORIS was already taken.. read here a piece of script from Red Dwarf:

"Um, I think we're all beginning to lose sight of the real issue here, which is "What are we going to call ourselves?" um, and I think it comes down to a choice between `The League Against Salivating Monsters' or my own personal preference, which is `The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society'. Um, one drawback with that... the abbreviation is `CLITORIS'."

Re: oo ouch
Haha. I think I remember that one...

The Peoples Front of Anime'? not to be confused with The Anime' Peoples Front? (note the real bad pun sec LOB-MPython)

Or maybe only I can get away with that because I'm asian. Hmm.
I suggest Y.A.T.T.A., but I can't think of a proper thing for that to stand for. I have "Young Alliance for the Treasuring and Touting of Anime", but I don't like the "young" bit. Think of a better Y-adjective, and you can take my idea.
