Comic Con this weekend!

"panic time"

Monday - July 19, 2004

[Piro] - 14:23:00 - [link here]

IMPORTANT!! - it appears that the time for the Megatokyo panel at San Diego Comic Con has changed. According to the schedule on the Comic Con website, it appears that our panel has been moved to 1:30 - 2:30 (the room is still the same - room 8). I have not received any notice of this change (which is irritating, since i've been telling everyone its 3:00pm) but I would assume that the time has indeed changed. I'll try to verify this tomorrow. Special thanks to Nishiko, who (unlike me) actually looked at the schedule :)


Ok, just a few quick things as i run around in a panic (the realization that we are leaving for San Diego in less than two days has finally sunk in).

I was surprised and downright shocked to find that The New York Times had a review of Megatokyo in the Sunday edition (click on 'No More Wascally Wabbits"). You can read it here (unfortunately it does require free registration and stuff). They actually said nice things too.

As i pointed out above, we'll be leaving for San Diego Comic Con in less than two days. If you are going, please stop by and see us. We have brought along some of just about all the new designs we'll be making available in the Megagear store at the end of the month. Yes, you can buy them. In fact, please do. Hopefully we brought enough. We have new shirts, new ladies shirts, new hats, MT book bags, buttons, posters... stuff like that. The booth is 2722, and is right next to the Dark Horse booth, so you should be able to find it.

No question that we have a very nice booth placement this year. However, i'm quite jealous of Greg of Real Life Comics, with whom we shared a booth last year - he seems to have managed a free trip to Bolivia! well, not quite, but sheesh, he's all the way down at the end of the earth. :P Be sure to drop by and say Hi to Greg and Liz and tell em we miss em. :P

Other MT related stuff of note, the Megatokyo panel is on Friday at 3:00pm in Room 8. We should have plenty of room this time (I hope). After the panel, at 5:30pm we will have the official Megatokyo signing at the Dark Horse booth. Please feel free to come by and help spook out all the DH folks :) Aside from that, Seraphim and I will try to be at the booth as much as possible over the course of the show, so please stop by and say hi.

Now, as for comic schedule, I'm definitely not any where near as ahead as i wanted to be today. I really don't want to leave you guys hanging on the story over the next week, so i'll do my best. I'll have Wednesday's comic done with no problem, Fridays i'm planning a bit of a filler comic (Piro and Seraphim) and then monday... well, Monday's comic might be a little late. After that, we'll get back on schedule.

Oop ack!

"An explanation"

Sunday - July 18, 2004

[Dom] - 23:11:11 - [link here]

I'm writing this rant from San Francisco--I spent today hanging out with my best friend, following him around as he did some Food Not Bombs stuff. It's a sign of our friendship that we haven't talked to each other for two months, but we still pick up like nothing's happened, and we can talk to each other about anything. And with him running off on a boat for a year starting in August, we'll probably pick up right back where we left off when he gets back.

So, Fred asked me to explain what my Friday rant meant--I told him what it was in advance, but I realize that not everyone who reads MegaTokyo has read and written academic treatises on Faulkner. I have. They're boring. It's okay.

See, I was paraphrasing (Paraphrasing is English major speak for "ripping off") a chapter from As I Lay Dying, a chapter where the young Vardaman attempts to comprehend death. I could probably write a few thousand more words on this--and I already have, they're sitting on my hard drive. But the point is, Vardaman has a hard time with it.

Why did I post that? Because at the time posted on the rant, my grandmother died.

Don't worry. It's going to be okay... probably. I'm just very, very busy and tired. And unfortunately, it means that my stay at San Diego Comic Con will be cut short, with Grandma's funeral taking place Saturday morning back in Redwood City.

I apologize in advance for missing time on the show floor. Like Fred, I enjoy meeting MegaTokyo fans a great deal, despite my supposed hatred of them... I guess it's like Clerks, I hate people but love gatherings.

Anyway, I probably won't be ranting for a while after this, and my mailbox is probably bursting to the gills with spam. But I'm looking forward to getting right back in the saddle and back into the business of annoying Fred and making the fans angry at me.

Take care of yourselves, I'll try my best to take care of me in the meantime.
