|0910 - Home again, for a couple of days|
The date Friday was fun, but very, very long. We spent 5 or 6 hours of it just driving from place to place. Friday afternoon traffic didn't help. We started at 10 AM, and I didn't get back to my room till 10 PM.
sunnielady is a nice lady, and we both had a great time. I think it'll make good TV. I expect it to air early in the week of 11 October, right after I get back from Linucon. Several of my friends will be jealous when they see it.
I got home about 5 yesterday afternoon. I'll spend today working on the Linucon costume, and some part of tomorrow in the Cities doing the same. They did get my flights changed, so I'm flying out Tuesday morning and back Wednesday morning. I'm glad I got off the red-eye. I hate those, since I can't sleep sitting up.
I'm flying to Austin Thursday, and will be at Linucon all weekend. I'm doing 7 panels, and there are a few more that I'm not going to miss. I'll also get to spend time with folks I know and meet some neat folks I don't know yet. It's really going to be fun. If you haven't registered yet, you can still get the preregistration price by registering online and using Howard Tayler's discount code, ovalkwik . (Yes, that's "kw", not "qw".) (Yes, the other Guests of Honor have their own discount codes. Howard's is the one I remember.) You've got until Wednesday.
Enough fiddling around online. Time to go have fun with plastic.
current mood: awake
I don't know why I hadn't put two and two together until this weekend. I was at an anime convention working on my documentary when your name came up. (Tron Guy)
I'm doing a documentary on "Cosplay", which I'm sure you're familiar with. If not, you can read a blurb about my doc and cosplay here:http://www.scatteredgenius.com/content.php?content.1
I know you might not consider what you do with the Tron costume to be cosplay, but I do.
I would love to get together with you for an interview. It would require a standard media release which I'm sure you're intimate with. If I'm not mistaken, you have an agent now, so he would be more then able to read the release that we're using.
This is, of course, assuming you will be heading out to Hollwood anytime soon. I know you are a busy guy so I would be more then willing to work around your schedule, the only requirement being that if it's during business hours I would need some heads up so I can plan ahead and get time off work. I live five min. away from where I think the Kimmel stuff happens, so it's a piece of cake to meet you anywhere you would like. The total interview wouldn't have to be any longer then about a half hour of your time.
If you want to talk specifics, comment back or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can start a dialogue.
Sure I'm interested. This week's trip to LA is not a good time to do it due to very limited time available, but I expect to be back for most of next week, and we can certainly do it then.
I'll send you email and CC my agent, so you two can talk about anything that seems worth talking about.
