The whole weekend was such a great experience, and a perfect renewal for our drive to complete season 2 and start prepping for season 3 as quickly as we can.
Here's a quick list of thanks, because I can't think of a way to elegantly work them in any other way:
- Thanks to anyone that came to any of our panels. Sorry the one about making a web series was so late and without a powerpoint or something to look at while we rambled on.
- Bonus thanks if you came to the sci-fi trivia that Tim co-hosted (Joseph and I were Team Bradley, of course).
- Thanks to all of you that came by our booth, too. We weren't expecting to have one available to us for the entire time (see previous blog post for proof), so we didn't really have much in terms of decorations other than a pile of DVDs and a makeshift sign. Hope we didn't offended too many of the other pro-booth folk.
- Huge thanks to Mary Fancher for buying the mask we had at the charity auction on Saturday. It sold for the highest price of them all, even beating out a lifesize cutout of David Tennant. No doubt the Oasis Center thinks you're a pretty awesome dude for that.
- Along those same lines, thanks to Jason Cole for buying us at the Orion Slave Auction (also for the Oasis Center) for an amount that made us the highest sale price of all the guys auctioned (Tiffany and some playboy model beat us, understandably). Our breakfast with you was great!
- Speaking of booths, thanks to our booth-mates Chris Haley and Curt Franklin over at Let's Be Friends Again for being such cool guys to share a table top with. They drew slenderman by request in a few of their books, if memory serves. Joseph's girlfriend folded their shirts all pretty while they were gone.
- Thanks to Jason Miller. He has the most intimidating headshot on the planet, but is one of the nicest guys to talk to. His acoustic show at the end of the con was also fantastic. (not to mention being involved in the nice surprise at the closing ceremony)
- Also thanks to both Ellen McLane and John Patrick Lowrie for seriously being the friendliest people I've ever met at a con. They were both so thankful for all their fans and were willing to sign anything you asked. I now have a signed copy of Portal 2, which I'm totally considering outright framing. Tim also chatted up John enough to where he remembered Tim's name throughout the weekend. Jealous.
- And lastly but not leastly, thanks to GMX and mastermind Jeremy Miller for inviting us! They were so helpful and made sure all of the people fit in the rooms they gave us for the panels. We'd love to come back next year, hint hint.
