It came to me in a dream...

I woke from a dream of something like a TV show.

The elevator pitch would go something like this - "He's a werewolf. She's a witch. They're married and they fight evil." :)

Today's moment of randomness

Who the f*ck is "Towanna" and why is he or she sending me texts asking for money?

I hope Towanna gets that $9, but it won't be from me.

Mr. Spock to Enterprise, one to beam up...

Leonard Nimoy passed away yesterday.

The original Star Trek is a fandom that my father and I shared since I was very young. I remember watching the old episodes on TV with him, and him taking my sister and me to see the films. This close to the anniversary of Dad's death, the loss of an actor I admired and whose iconic character I often empathized with in my middle- and high-school years as a brainy geek seems especially poignant.

Rest well, Mr. Nimoy. You shall be missed.

W20!

So, I bought a copy of Werewolf The Apocalypse 20th Anniversary edition; yesterday, it arrived.

I am most impressed with what the folks at Onyx Path have done. It makes me want to play WtA again.

Maybe I'll keep the idea for a WtA 20 game in the back of my brain. :)

The new Madoka movie? Here? Yes!

Guess who's going to see Puella Magi Madoka Magica - Rebellion on the big screen next Saturday (December 14)?

I'm pretty amazed that there's actually a showing of it here (we're kinda in the boonies, as far as stuff like that goes); I was figuring I'd have to go to Toronto or something like that.

*insert Madoka fangirl squeeing here*

And so an era ends...

This is really only relevant to the folks nearby, or those farther away who might still have fond memories....

Apparently, UB SARPA is no longer going to be holding Open Gaming in Baldy Hall as of the Spring 2014 semester at UB. The reason cited is lack of interest among the university undergrads, who were actually the people the event was designed for; the alumni and local gamers were really just ancillary members.

I have many fond memories associated with Open Gaming; it's where I played and GMed my first games, and where I met a number of friends, many of whom I'm still close to today.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed by this turn of events, but there's not much of a choice. We'll simply have to find another place to game.

Otakon 20

...was loads of fun!

I attended some cool panels (the Kamen Rider and "Artist Alley 101" ones was really great), picked up some neat stuff in the Dealer Room and Artist Alley, and just generally enjoyed three days of Japanese pop culture goodness.

This year I cosplayed Dekayellow of Tokusou Sentai Dekaranger, and received many compliments. I also got the chance to participate in a Super Sentai/Power Rangers photoshoot, which was a lot of fun, despite the heat (we had so many people they moved us out of the BCC to the Inner Harbor). Our shoot attracted a number of kids who wanted their pictures taken with us; that was cute.

Speaking of sentai, I also managed to get Tomokazu Seki's autograph on our copy of the Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger character book (he's the voice of all their equipment). C and I also got to see his Q&A, which was very entertaining.

All in all, a very fun con!

I's a panelist!

Panel on Japanese relationships submitted and accepted for ToraCon 2013. I'm committed now! :)

Now I need to finish making clips....
