Panels I plan or think about submitting
I plan to bring from Kumoicon , Furry and Anime panel
Another panel I think and panel to do is “ Beyond the furcon: being a furry at other conventions and geek communities. As you see I go to many different fan con a year. This we discuss stepping out and being fur at other conventions and geek communities. I am looking for other furs who attend other cons like Radcon, Sakuracon, Norwescon, Ever ree NW, and other NW fan conventions. I am so look fur who are also involved with Anime, science and Steampunk communities. How does one integrate furry into other communities.
Otaku Over 25, a panel for older fans. I have one recruit but looking for other especially in planning and topics. I real need more than filling a seat on a panel.
Furry and anime 2?
If you not heard today is free Comic Book Day. Some of the tiles maybe out of stock by now. Have learned that lesson year I head out early around 8:00am. The store opens at 9:00am. I still did some quick contacts with my hand held on one of the ham radio repeater while I waited. I got the two titles I was looking for, Hello Kitty and Friends and Rocket Raccoon. I picked up a copy of Guardians of the Galaxy because I am interested in the movie. I wanted to do some shopping and pick up some secondary choices but deiced it was getting too crowded. I will swing back latter.
English Standard Version (ESV)
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
I want to wish everybody a merry Christmas.
The Con Wonder Northwest
The Place Crowne Plaza Hotel Portland Oregon
The Date 14-15 May 2001 (I attended only the 15th)
Wonder North West is a new Comic and pop culture expo in Portland. Not seeing much on the first day I only attend Sunday a decision I grew to regret by not going Saturday. Not much to say about panes except an interesting one on Pirate lore. Other than that it was more of a relax-a-con for me. I ran to may I seen at Kumoricon and Mewcon. I took Big Kitty around for the ride and she was a hit. The funniest thing I won a floor prize of volume one of the Stand Graphic Novel ; I only know because others kept on telling me.
The price only $6.00 a day or 10.00 for the weekend. The bet con value I ever head of.
Quality of the floor prizes; Wonder NW had some serious sponsorship.
Pirates: unrestrained costuming awesomeness.
Very good quality Con Book and swag bag, for a 6.00 a day convention this impressed me.
Not enough panels, then again I let it slide for being a first year small con
Not going Saturday.
Overall this one is a gem and has some serious potential as a multi-genre convection.
The Convention: 0rycon 32 Portland, Oregon’s Science Fiction convention
The Place: Lloyd’s Center Double Tree Inn
The Dates: 12 – 14 Nov 2010
I went to the hotel after getting a much need haircut around 12:00pm. The was only a small line for registration it only too me 15 minutes to register at the door compared to the tow hour death march just to Pick up my pre-reg badge at Kumoricon . Panels of interest were a thin for me but no big problem. I approached Orycon as a relax-a-con: spending more time lounging around and talking to people than rushing panel to panel. My big Chococat had made his appearance and like other cons was a big hit. The first panel “Has the dream of MLK been realized?” was the fist on my list; the theme was about tolerance with in fandoms and social issues. The panelists where great not going into all to usual lets bash Christians and conservatives are racist mode of thinking. Next up was Guy’s How to create AMV panel, this was better than last year. Finally, was what’s on your nightstand? Panel the opening ceremony, which the skit was a bit to long. Dinner and catching up with old friends was the order of the evening before going home.
