Insert Super Bubble joke here
Hope this makes up for the lack of posts of late.
Well, knowing Rudy he'd tell me to drop the depressing bullshit (though he’d be touched by the sentiment) and get to the good stuff. So then…Let’s talk Nerd Prom.
I’ll get into the San Diego report shortly, but I need to do this first.
Business cards are done!
It's 8:02am as I begin to type this post. In one week at this time, I'll likely be starting to wake up in my hotel at San Diego. (Body clocks suck.)
Can we slow the Earth down a bit...you know, maybe allow an extra day or two in between now and the 18th?
Spent part of Tuesday on the phone with CCI trying to figure out where the "Digital Webbing" booth will be placed since our first choice was unavailable. I think it'll work out and will wind up saving us a little cash as well.
Also emailed back and forth with Joel (colors on the Dreah story in DWP 26 and now doing stuff for Jim Valentino's SHADOWLINE imprint at Image). Joel's been cool seeing as how my not getting to Mid-Ohio back in November has prevented me from getting him the copies I owe him. He's working on colors for the Miss Vicky pitch in his breaks on the Image book.
Of course he's not the only one I owe books too. Sarge is needing books for an event and since I didn't get my books at the show, I haven't been able to get him copies yet. It's enough to pull my hair out as I think about it. Hopefully some of the guys who split up my copies will be kind enough to ship him a few. (Even though I wasn't able to help at the booth I paid part of. HINT HINT)
To be honest, I'm on the fence about MOC 2006. I've loved going the last few years as it was held at the Hilton by Easton Plaza. This year however it's getting moved to a downtown convention center in Columbus and, as a result, Roger is having to hike the booth/table fees. (Oddly enough, Artist Alley tables will still be cheaper than at a Wizard show.) I'm sure it'll be a solid show, MOC always is, but the move is going to change the atmosphere. I may not decide for sure until after Chicago. We'll see.
As we inch closer to the event, I thought I’d toss a couple of extra items for those who might be traveling with “civilians” who aren’t into the total immersion comic-con experience. The first item is also a nice option for those skipping Saturday’s insanity.
