|San Diego Comic-Con post
*NOTE 1* OK< this was posted in my FA account yesterday, so, if read there, just skip ^_^*
*NOTE 2* I will not go into the hell my flight back was...just that they will get a very scathing letter...onto the con goodness.
How to describe San Diego Comic-Con...FUCKING HUGE...might describe it slightly. I have been attending furry cons and scifi cons for years. Big ones, lil ones, fun ones and crappy ones. This con just cannot be described, you gotta see it to believe it. Much like pictures cannot show the massive scale of the Grand Canyon, words just cannot do justice to the magnitude of this con.
OK, to anyone that thinks Anthrocon is "too big" or "I gotta walk all the way from the con hotel to the convention center" I do not wanna hear it anymore. The dealer room alone at SDCC is the length of 2 football fields. JUST the dealers room alone if overlaid onto the Pittsburgh convention center to the con hotel, would drape it on both sides. The amount of people is staggering. Anthrocon, the largest furry con in the world has a total of about 2,800 attendees....SDCC has over 125,000, being capped by fire marshals, otherwise there'd be even more there. Just more to give it some scale...you could fit 9 Anthrocon dealer rooms in the SDCC con hall. Let's say this...the Mach 5 for the new Speed Racer movie was there..I never saw it. I missed a huge white sports car!! THAT is big.
How was it for furries. Well, I was at the Clubstripes booth and first wanna thank EVERYONE who stopped by to just say hi, get a sketch, buy a CD or our new all color book "The Best of Clubstripes". It was a real blast. It was also fun to see "norms" approach the table, some seeing it was furry, giggling and turning away, or like the majority, at least taking a look inside our book and some even buying it. I'd say the feedback from con-goers in general was really positive, which really made the time there so much fun.
Usually at furry cons I do not buy that much stuff, I stick to my table, nose down in sketchbooks. Since SDCC is 4 days long and most days open from 10-7 I was able to walk around and buy some cool stuff and score some con swag. You name an interest, it was here. Comics, toys, Japanese collectibles, fashions, movie studios, celebrities, video games, comic creators, actors, writers, all were here. Panels for tons of upcoming TV shows, movies, you name it, it was here. I din bother with em since lines were so long to get to them. I do regret not attending the masquerade, but got to hang with some cool artists and learn some new techniques I definitely will be using. I even got to meet the man who voices Grr from Invader Zim! Heck I got to see Stan Lee get into a cab, we all cheered him, hehe. So much geekery was never so concentrated in one place.
The city itself was great too, definitely a tourist trap, but one I loved. Gorgeous weather, great places to eat and walk around on. First night there I ate at a place called Basic. They serve flat bread pizza that was soo good. They also had huge boards you could paint on, was a fun atmosphere to start off my con trip with! Had dessert at Giordelli's, they do great chocolate, uh, other places I ate at during the stay, this cool mongolian style place at the Horton Plaza mall, and Sushi Deli II..DAMN good food and lots of it, we were all stuffed
Clubstripes is getting a booth next year and I am definitely planning on attending. For me the con was worth it. It was huge beyond comprehension, crowded, hyped to death, but an experience I loved! AGAIN, I wanna thank all those who stopped by the booth and chatted, bought stuff, you all made it such a fun time there. Some I wish I had the time to hang out with more...you know who you are!
Personal cool moment..meeting Rikki Simmons, the voice of Grr!! I even drew Tristan Oakenrod, my HUGELY hung human barbarian for a friend of his in her sketchbook (I totally did not catch your name, was so hard to hear with the crowd!), was soo cool!
Oh, go buy the Best of Clubstripes book!! It will look great on your coffee table or shelf, you can get it here: www.clubstripes.com Heck, join the site if you can too, there is some great talent there. I am glad to know them. OK, plug over! ^_^

Howdy ya'll, been a while since posted bout stuff other than auctions. I will be at Midwest Furfest in two weeks! I didn't get a dealers table this time round but will try the artists alley. I hear from other folks that it is a pretty good spot, so, will see. I will have the usual CD, some new ones, like the 2006 CD and the Euro Folio CD that was debuted at EF this past summer! :) Some furry/human goodness also will be on it. So, I look forward to attending my first MFF. If any tips or such bout the con and hotel, feel free to let me know! And definitely stop by and say Hi if you see me wandering aimlessly!

|Time's running out. LAPTOP AUCTION!!!!
Who out there would like to buy a laptop with more than 1900 Gideon drawings on its hard drive?
That's right! There's something for everyone! All the content of Gideon's more than nine art CD's, plus art that has never before been published, or even seen by non-Gideon eyes. And all of this on a fine laptop computer that is in perfect operating condition and less than five years old!
You can see more details at Furbid
, and even bid on this once-in-a-lifetime offer.
Go! Bid! Buy! Be the envy of your friends!

|No power and Furbid auction goodness begins
Tuesday evening had the usual weekly movie night gathering...but we had one extra guest...an insanely massive storm...with a green sky...green. First the winds started whipping and blowing, folks went out to see them, then the rain started...and hurled and stormed, lightning surrounded the house and then the power went out...and has not come back on yet.
I have been a very lucky hoss though to have such charitable and generous friends letting me soak up their intarweb, use of shower and wonderful, glorious air conditioning. Being in the high 90's has realllly sucked. As of now there is no estimated time from the power company for power restoration, maybe this weekend if lucky. Also no water, since from a well, which they are aware of, so, let's hope that expedites things!
BUT, also wanna let folks know, got an interesting Furbid auction just started. My Sony Vaio laptop, with over 1,900 pics in the HD and a custom desktop background. Go check it if yer interested.http://www.furbid.ws/cgi-bin/auction/item.pl?item=19100

Finally am getting over my AC con crud. Kinda hit me the day I got back from AC after the 5 hour car drive. Felt kinda weak and dehydrated no matter how much I drank, just felt bloated.
Later in the day got lil weaker and just woozy. Took my lovely table minion...err ASSISTANT out to dinner as a *THANKYOUSOFUCKINGMUCHFORHELPINGSELLMYSH
ITANDAMSOHAPPYANDTHANKFULFORIT* Took him to Ooka, to me THE BEST hibachi places in my area and one of the best in the world. Now, as soon as I walked in I smelled that awesome food, and just cringed as my stomach turned some. So, I sat there getting more and more woozy as thankfully my friend really dug the dinner. I had to take my meal home without a single bite!
I get so bad that I hadda ask him to drive, so, get home and up to bed for the rest of the evening. Nothing worse than that feeling that you gotta, ya know, hurl, but just can't. Many trips to the bathroom but nothing happening. I had earlier that day picked up a few lil B'day items fer myself, like the Metal Gear Solid Digital Graphic Novel fer the PSP and issue 6 of my now favorite manga "Deathnote" and I just didn't have the energy to even read or play any of them. Finally, bout midnight, well my stomach FINALLY let things go their course and man, as much as you hate it, you feel so much better afterwards. Sorry if was TMI, hehe, just hadda jot stuff down.
Still not 100%, but much better today, mostly takin it easy and just lots of water. And again, to folks who stopped by the con to wish me a Happy B'day this past Sunday, thank you!! I am always lil odd round my B'day and never make much of a deal bout it. My Mom's B'day is the 16th and Father's Day this year fell on my B'day. Both have passed on and even though a few years now, well...
Anyways, con was as in my previous post, AWESOME, had prolly my best time at an Anthrocon ever. Lookin forward to 07 so much now.

|Post AC con report #2,489
OK, got home from the con rather exhausted from the 5 hour drive and the tinge of con crud I seem to usually avoid every con. BUT, damn this was for me the best AC I have ever attended.
Lessee, sales were awesome and wanna thank everyone who got some Gideon stash and sketches, I am sooo thankful and hope you enjoy it all. And wanna thank everybody who stopped by just to chat and on Sunday wish me a Happy Birthday, was truly awesome. And for those who got a $1 badge, you rawk!
What else, the convention center and hotel were outstanding. Loved the natural light in the dealer room as well. And also congratulations to folks who got my pieces in the art show. Everything went, and still not sure who got what or how much, so, that will be cool to see.
One of the highlights for me has got to be the Zoo. HUGE, and huge some more. All kinda folks just hanging, drawing, chatting and meeting there, was a great spot. Did some Dick-Pictochating there with fellow DS owners. Had some chats with the full 16 in one chat, was just too much twisted fun. Hung round with lotta great folks in there. Was also the coolest dead dog party, with DJ, munchies and just good times.
What else...good eats while there, met lotta new furs, and am not gonna even try to name em all, I know I will forget some, fergetful hoss. That's it for me, see you AC 07!!
