Duty now for the near future

Figured I'd go ahead and make this post now because I don't know if I'll have the time or inclination to do it later today.

The election went all right, I guess. People seemed disinclined to make changes in the parent company, since nobody ran against tatsmaru for Prez or willow_one for Secretary, and none of the four challengers to revolutionaryjo and geekboyonline were even close to the winners' vote totals. A few people took advantage of the write-in/comedy option on the ballots, but strangely enough nobody voted for Vladimir Putin. The fix was in. About a third of the people eligible to vote didn't show up or showed up late, and none of them except our lighting guy sent me an absentee ballot; Lauren sent her proxy with stuckintraffik, but she was the only one who took advantage of that. *shrug*

The postmortem likewise went fairly smoothly. stuckintraffik kept things moving since nobody wanted to get bogged down in excessive detail or wrangling (though some people tried) on account of it being Friday night. I suspect that a number of things are going to be hashed out over the next couple of months and some changes will be made on staff as some of us leave and get replaced by fresh blood. It's not really my problem at this point, but still, I don't want to just wash my hands of the whole thing and walk away, because there are loose ends that need to be wrapped up. Changing the subject slightly, it was encouraging to see about a dozen or so volunteers show up for what appeared to be their first staff meeting, and mildly amusing to hear tatsmaru insist to the department heads that the volunteer party was to thank the volunteers, NOT to recruit prospective staff.

It's almost 3 AM. I better get my tired butt to bed, because there's a lot to do tomorrow and some of it has to happen earlier rather than later. Urgh.

Rally 'round the guests, boys

Life is sucking hard for Bob & Emily DeJesus at the moment. Tax and personal problems have combined to really put the hurt on them, and they need our help. For those of you that don't remember, Bob & Emily were our artist guests at Anime Detour 2006, and are really great people. Unfortunately, life being what it is, sometimes even nice people get screwed by the revenooers and the fickle finger of fate. I know some of you are going to Anime Boston, so if you get a chance to drop by their table and buy their stuff, please do so. They also do commissions and custom badge art at extremely reasonable prices, which is another reason to give them your dinero. Me, I won't be at Anime Boston, but I do plan to hit their website when payday rolls around tomorrow.

UPDATE & BUMP: Bob & Emily's new site is at Studio Capsule. Go forth and buy stuff!
