Staging an Intervention

Next month, I’m going to an Intervention. You should too, and bring your friends! Intervention, now in its fifth year, bills itself as “The Premier Showcase of Online Creativitry: Blogs, Videos, Podcasts, and Makers”. That’s pretty accurate from what I’ve seen, and I’ve been going for the last three years. From a distance, it looks …

Harassment at Arisia

Arisia is a science-fiction convention in New England which takes its name from the remote, mysterious guiders of Galactic Civilization in the “Lensman” books.

Harassment

Whether it be a fan con or a lifestyle event, from this day forward I will do everything in my power to make sure that every convention with which I am involved has an anti-harassment policy in place, well-publicized, and enforced.

Girls with Slingshots

And now, I would like to take a moment and plug the excellent webcomic “Girls with Slingshots” by the charming Danielle Corsetto. I am doing this in part because I’ve enjoyed her work for years and wish to encourage people to support her strip, and in part because I accidentally got to have dinner with …

Dark Odyssey: Fusion

The camping gear’s all packed up in the car. I’m on my way at oh-cthulhu-hundred tomorrow to Dark Odyssey: Fusion 2011, the outdoor kink convention. I expect to perv out, possibly geek out, and quite likely get a bit of sunburn where most folks generally don’t (*double-checks that the sunscreen lotion got packed*). I’m sure …
