    • "You'd better be ready"...

      I was told by a "convention friend" that I'd "better be ready for a huge crowd" for Emerald City Comic Con.

      This is a rant and I may not communicate my frustration completely.

      1) This "convention friend" is a very sweet, passionate, well-meaning person, but about as socially inept as they come.

      2) I'm working side-by-side with the volunteer coordinator (The Minion Overlord, respectfully; this will be year #3) and have a pretty damn good grasp on how many people we expect to attend Emerald City this year. Although my "power" doesn't extend passed who gets to be a Minion, the training for the new Minions, and losing my voice to talking over PAX Prime-sized crowds...I am privy to some vital information...as in, shit that hasn't been officially announced. I also am aware of the fact that our convention has the advantage of taking up more space for 2013. We've rented more of the Convention Center (we'll be the only event happening that weekend for a change), so we have floors 2 through 6...just like PAX and Sakura Con.

      3) The information I'm privy to has a lot to do with more celebrity guests to be announced. No. I will not tell you or hint or any of that. smiley8.gif
      As if the the current list isn't awesome enough - - - OMG MICHAEL SHANKS - - -
      tumblr_md0vugN39L1r9ge0bo1_500.jpg

      Oh yeah...and that Sir Patrick Stewart guy.

      This "convention friend" looks at me, seriously...intently...and with such cautionary tone that I'm afraid that she may start crying. She's intense in her news: (All emphasis in caps were vocalized by her)
      "You'd better be ready for a HUGE crowd for Emerald City Comic Con this year. Like, people will be coming from OTHER STATES to be there this year."

      Unflinching, I respond: "We've got people coming from as far as Australia volunteering for this convention. Most merchants are coming from New York and L.A. Our celebrity guest list alone is comprise of actors coming from Europe."

      "NO." she reacts as if I'm not listening to her. "No. I mean ATTENDEES. They will be coming form ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. I think that you should know that."

      Trying not to be impatient... 'Like every year. Yes. People come from all over the U.S. and Canada every year to attend Emerald City."

      "This year, it's different. You NEED to be aware of the caliber of fans. My fan group. The people who I associate myself with. The Homestuck fans will be here in great groups because Andrew Hussie will be there. You need to understand that there will be fans coming in from OTHER STATES just to see him. You may want to talk to your volunteer team about this."

      I blink...a few times...my 3 second silence felt like an hour and a half...
      tumblr_md2pqxYKif1rfhmwzo1_500.gif

      "Are you saying that the Homestuck fanbase will make up the majority of the attendees?" I cautiously ask.

      "Yes" she says with the seriousness of any fan...

      "NameRemoved..." I stammer "Have you seen the celebrity list for Emerald City this year?

      "No, but Andrew will be the biggest crowd draw. Expect 20,000 attendees for the weekend at the very least.

      In my mind:
      tumblr_mbrq1zZ0Fu1qgcel1o4_400.gif

      "Ok. Emerald City hit 55,000 last year. We expect 65,000 this year just based on the current celebrity list alone. There are some confirmed guests that have not been announced publicly that guarantee those numbers. Homestuck is a drop in the bucket compared to Sir Patrick Stewart, Adam West, Gillian Anderson..."

      She interrupts me "You do not understand how popular this series is online, Mary. This is serious."

      I'm losing my cool.
      "NameRemoved. I know that Homestuck is popular. It's incredibly popular. But it's not going to outshine Star Trek, Harry Potter, Chris Claremont, and half the cast of Invader Zim. Homestuck is not going to pack the convention center full alone."

      She looks worried that I'm not agreeing with her. "but, the sheer numbers on Tumblr!"

      I ALMOST LOOSE IT HERE.
      tumblr_mbrmsumMMm1qgcel1o4_250.gif

      "I appreciate your concern, NameRemoved...we are planning on 65,000 people this year. We'll be fine. I promise."

      And then, as if on cue, my brother loudly interrupts us with some drunken tirade about work.
      Thank God.

      I swear that I have a sign on my back.

      I've also been bombarded with Xbox Live inquiries: "Hey how do i get a job at roosterteth can u send my demo real to bernie. i no you work for RT. Will you help me with my machinima?"

      Sure. I'll get right on that.

      What is your favorite notoriously bad movie?

      tumblr_mdipebYH1O1rzsdmlo1_400.gif

      Mine?
      Birdemic.

      So dog-fuckingly horrible that, even with the Rifftrax, it drives @SirNarvy crazy when I watch it. Birdemic makes Manos: The Hands of Fate look like Gone With The Wind. ...and I LOVE Gone With The Wind

      What I admire most about Birdemic is the passion and good intentions behind making the movie.
      Granted...the road to Hell is paved with good intentions...but I give credit where credit is due.
      And these guys are brave enough to make a sequel.
      Wow.

      I cannot be the only excited for these:

      If @MisterSir is being blamed for buying up all the Achievement Hunter slapbands (back in stock, by the way), then I will surely be guilty for buying all the Rooster Teeth slapbands when they become available.

      I've been anticipating more RT logo merch for a while. This is exciting! My body wallet is ready.

      Ah! I was going to guess either that or boyfriend or something.
      But it does get awkward if I were wrong and he was one of those "just a friend" or a relative or something.

      Well, that actually wasn't my idea for that photo. I think it was Caleb or someone else who was behind the table in the booth that day.

      I guess that's why he's working with RT. Best of the best and all that.
      That's what I'd wanna do. If RT plans to do anymore CGI related business with RvB, they're definitely gonna get calls from me. I don't care if I gotta shack up in Geoff and Griffon's "studio" or even Gus' couch. It'd be sick to work with these guys.

      I just heard from my roomie (who was at the panel) that Monty did all the mo cap stuff himself!
      That really blew my mind, because with the scenes that involve 2-3 characters interacting with each other, that's gotta take some time. I have a lot of respect for Monty.

    • reesekindle

      8 years ago

      I've got a ways to wait before I can get Revelation. I normally buy the DVD's at PAX, and this year I just got Recreation because of funds.
      But that fight scene... holy shit, Batman. I never thought that Monty would bring his full game to this series. Guess who's the fool now. :P

      Nearest bus stop is 15 minutes out of the way, and the shuttles for my college have a ridiculous schedule that doesn't match mine at all. Riding with this maniac is 15 minutes less than traveling like a normal person. As long as I'm not driving, and everything in the car is safely secured, I'm good.

      Heh, yeah eventually I'll make my way up there but right now I can't afford to move out. Hopefully the girls up in Seattle are less...what's the word I'm looking for? Well like...they will hopefully be less quick to judge I guess? Iono...OH less superficial haha. Have a lot of problems with that in California unfortunately...

      And that's cool! I love when the staff responds to stuff we do haha. When Burnie positively modded a comment I made on his profile I seriously flipped out hahaha. But yeah, Joel is definitely one of the coolest =D
