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? :)

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...

I'd love to come and help, except that there's this little thing with few remaining vacation days and something about funds...

I wonder if either con will allow me to do an overnight Saikano marathon... It is science fiction...

It all depends on whether you want to be invited to run the anime room for those cons again in the future. ;)
I think stuff like Stellvia, RahXephon, Full Metal Panic, Last Exile, PlanetES, Kiddy Grade, Kenran Butoh Sai, Bakuretsu Tenshi and Xenosaga would be much more popular.
(And during the night, you can always marathon Genshiken, and see who has a sense of humour.)

Aw, it wouldn't be so bad if I promoted it right.

Friday night Cry-Fest in the anime room! Saikano marathon, all 13 episodes! Tissues and chocolate will provided, as well as counseling hotline numbers. Followed immediately by Bottle Fairy 1-2.

That reminds me, I still need to try Genshiken...

Aye that it be. 'Tis from when yon felines did dwell at yer abode. T'was a glorious time when many a ship could be seen from yer rear porthole.

Wow, I miss the boat storage lot.

So, do you think either con might let me do a Saikano overnight marathon? :D
