One minor problem solved

The hanko for our Badger King arrived last night in e-mail, but since I was sick as a dog and went to bed at 1930 without even looking at my computer I didn't see it until this morning. Ben at The Japanese Connection apologized for the fact that the badger/badge checker pun doesn't work in Japanese and therefore the hanko actually reads "Tanuki King of Anime Detour".

This actually makes things easier, since we were doing some low-level agonizing over what music to play when we summon Aaron onstage for his investment. Now the choice of entrance song will be obvious, at least to anyone who's seen Ponpoko. What else could we choose but AC/DC?

Correction We didn't actually get the whole hanko, just the kanji for it, since getting a stone or wood hanko would have set us back a couple hundred bucks, which is a bit pricey for this kind of fun.

Hey, buddy! Say, who would I talk to about doing a panel at Anime Detour? I was seriously considering doing that talk about how to put together a cosplay/masquerade entry. Do you think a panel is the right medium for that?

I was also thinking I might enter the cosplay, but I heard they had like a Gazillion entries last year, and I don't want to be bored backstage that long.

Either a workshop or a panel, yes. There's a link on our website that will generate a programming suggestion form - that would be the way to bring it to the attention of the Programming staff.

The cosplay did in fact have many many entries last year, but Gordon ran a tight ship and had everyone on & off-stage in about 45 minutes, so if you pre-registered and sent in your cosplay form with it you'd be pretty close to the head of the line since there's only about half-a-dozen folks signed up for it so far. (The rest will probably wait until they show up at the convention. Arrrgh.) Anyway, I am counting on Lori and Caitlin to continue Gordon's efficient ways, and so is the rest of the staff.

Oh yeah - register early; the deadline for pre-reg is February 11.
