Just a quick question for Poe:

Would you be willing to be contacted about being a guest at an anime convention in Cincinnati, Ohio?

^-^'

Sorry about my impertinence in asking Poe about this, especially here in the forum... but one of the conchairs asked me to, and I wasn't sure if an e-mail would ever get an answer. -_-'

^-^' Also, I'm curious to know how many people would go to a convention JUST because Poe was there?

I would avoid it just to avoid Poe.

What? He's a creepy man, and he looks smelly. Plus look at the subject matter. XD

Actually, I wouldn't go just because Poe was there, either, though that's more because I wouldn't go unless I'd already planned to anyways... guest lists never mattered much to me.

However, that's not to say that other people wouldn't or shouldn't care about the guest list.

EDIT:
(I'm not saying that guests aren't an important and interesting part of the convention experience, merely that "so and so will be there" is not a major reason for me to attend a convention. Guests can be very fun and very nice people, if you get a chance to get to know them a bit)

I'd make a point to go if the con were somewhere nearby.

But Ohio is too far away.

I loved that part of the comic... it was just soooo accurate.

There HAS been talk of paying Poe to go by buying his beer and whatever else and giving him a pretty girl... Although, pretty girls are a limited commodity, so that may be out. It depends. Actually, so does the beer... There was much jesting during that particular conversation. I believe someone even suggested trying to get Bruce Lee for a guest, which has obvious problems... ^-^'

Oh, and SugoiCon 2001 sold beer at the convention, although I think it was technically the hotel doing that. The best place to get beer is the room parties, I'd guess, as that's generally free, but I'd be the wrong person to ask.

Ah, but we do. And that's really not too far off, aside from the manga-izing. I've seen a photo of him before. *goes off to look for that post*

...

Success!

What do I win?

I should note that that thread appears to be in the section of the database that got fux0red. Aside from the fact that it placed the first post fourth, the worst effect is that my post in the thread, which was a damned funny one as I recall, is no more >.<

Note: While I was searching, I noticed something. MiB, is this you?

EDIT: Actually, all of my KeenSpot posts appear to be gone. What the fuck? OMG!! No l3gacy 4 m1!!!

I'm wearing that same pair of pants right now...

Granted I hacked off the legs so they are now cutoffs, but still. The long hair, the goatee, the sunglasses, and the club. I am officially freaked out now. Poe is the long lost brother I never had. May some divine creature, should said beast exist, save us all.

It would be an honor to meet Poe, but I'm planning on going to Sugoi Con since I went Last year. Oh, and if you're going to get drunk, you need to find the Drunken Black Mage. He makes a kick ass batch of LCL. Just look for a big FF1 Black Mage with a group following him or just smell the reek of alcohol.

If Poe does decide to go, though I'm not sure if he would want to leave his citadel in Louisiana, I would be pretty easy to spot what with the Long Ass Black Leather Trenchcoat of Hentai-Goodness and my Fedora Hat.

Maybe when I get there, I should get two pieces of paper and tape one on my chest saying "Read Errant Story!" and the one on my back would read "Poe is God"

However, If I did that, I think he would make sure to stay the hell away from me. It is certain for anyone involved that I will be going to SugoiCon and I'm gonna make sure to enjoy my Scotch and maybe get drunk all over again. Just watch out for the Kentucky Cops, they seem to have a problem with public drunkeness, which boggles my mind since they make their own damn Moonshine.

*snickers evilly and ponders how many hippies would ever write stuff like Poe's*

From those I know, my guess is several. Oh, and speaking of long haired hippies uniting: <a href="http://fgcquaker.org/centennialphoto/vu.php">Look at this... another three year old picture...</a>

For the curious, I'm <a href="http://fgcquaker.org/centennialphoto/vu.php?tx=16.541176470588&ty=3.0172413793103&bx=15&by=3&L=4&mag=1&cvs=2&chs=3&ti=1063389987&alternate=&id=&spot=&ofs=0&fil=&az=&panBtn=Up&alt%5B%5D=&magChk=1">here </a> in that picture, right in the middle, pretty much.

Ooh! You were at SugoiCon last year, BandMan? Hmmm... do you recall, perchance, the Neon Green Flourescent Flowered Gigantic Anime Mallet of Squirrel-Bashing Goodness (tm)? My friend (a long-haired "Jesus wannabe" with a squirrel on his head) and I got dubbed Squirrel Boy and Mallet Girl, though I suspect you'd remember the mallet more readily... It'd be neat if we'd met.

Also scary.

Actually, I think I might've caught a passing glimpse and thought, "Ok, what the hell anime are THEY supposed to be from?" But most of my memories of SugoiCon involved trying to stay away from the Kentucky Cops, enjoying the cosplayers and helping my friend who had a wee bit too much of the Liquid Spirit. I swear that one gal dressed as Aisha Clan-Clan was a damn spitting image, though.

However, yeah if you want to meet, like I said I would be wearing my Black Leather Trenchcoat of Hentai Goodness and my Fedora Hat...but perhaps I'll think of a way for Bandman2K to be somewhere on my person. If all else fails, I'll spend some of my time in the lobby smoking a cigar or something like that and just enjoying the scenery at 3 in the morning. I NEVER sleep at cons. The only time I actually slept was at ACEN earlier this year when I got so shit-faced that I had to be escorted to my room and watched by two security guards to make sure that I stayed in my room for a couple hours. Then I was needing the sleep and I did zone out. Other than that, I subsist on maybe a Instant Lunch a day plus No-Doz pills and Mountain Dew to wash them down.

We were from <a href="http://bladesandspells.keenspace.com/d/20020802.html"> here </a> and <a href="http://bladesandspells.keenspace.com/d/20020907.html"> here. </a> Actually, just Imp-Chan was. Squirrel-boy... *sigh* That's just my evil twin being himself.

And yes, the Aisha ClanClan was spookily correct. I enjoyed the No-Face more, though, and the Kyo and Iori costumes too. Didn't see too many cosplayers... wound up spending most of my time playing Mao, an interesting and increasingly difficult card game.

Woah, anime convention in CINCINNATI?
When will this happen?

I say this in particular as Cincinnati is notorious for being behind the times.

"When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it's always twenty years behind the times." -Mark Twain

It's that bad.

Well, one already happened, called Ikasucon, this past July. However, before that SugoiCon has been in the greater Cincinnati area for years and years.

We're not sure exactly what the name of Ikasucon will be next year. There were some rumors about the meaning of the word Ikasu (some claimed it meant rape, which it does not), so we may change the name.

If people are in Cincinnati, I'm the secretary of the local anime club- Anime UC. The treasurer, incidentally, is standing behind me. You should come to one of our meetings... Fridays at 7.

*sigh* Too expensive to go to that many conventions with no job. I'll be at Kaze-con, cosplaying Ritsuko from Those Who Hunt Elves. I might go to SugoiCon on Saturday, but that's about it. I'll be at OhayoCon, though, for the entire time because I've already paid, though I have no idea what costume I'll have...

Will anyone else be at any of those conventions? If you go to just one... go to Kaze-Con. They're offering a cash prize for the cosplay contest, so a lot of the really good cosplayers are giving it their best shot, so it should be worth going just to see all the amazing costumes. I guarantee surprises... *evil laughter*
