Back from BronyCon 2016! · 12:21am
Made it back home from BronyCon. I had a blast, save for a case of dry heaves right before boarding the bus to Baltimore on Thursday. That was ... unpleasant. Still, at least I front-loaded all bad stuff then and there. I shared a room with http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Ponibius and http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Comma-Kazie with much shenanigans to be had. Hopefully, next year we'll be joined by our co-conspirator, http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Chengar+Qordath
We went to a couple of writing panels and reviewer panels with the ever-awesome Silver Quill, our fandom's very own Nostalgia Critic/Linkara. He is too cool. I got autographs from several other reviewers like Sketchy the Changeling, Lightning Bliss, CellSpex and some others. They were cool too, though one of them was an asshat. Eh, one in every crowd, I suppose.
We ate crab cakes and other fine sea fare in Baltimore, though I am grateful to be back home and eating my normal fare. All the Oreos for me! OM NOM NOM NOM! We tossed around some story ideas and generally had a good time.
When not emptying our wallets, we watched and riffed on stuff in our hotel room with my other friends http://askblacklin.tumblr.com/ and http://meadowshrine.tumblr.com/. I finally introduced Comma and Poni to Gravity Falls and we got through the entire first season, plus the shorts. I also introduced Comma, a fellow Marx Brothers fan, to Animal Crackers (which he had somehow not seen, the philistine) and we also Duck Soup. MeadowShrine showed me Toxic Crusaders and Poni made us suffer through the three-hour long torment known as The Trial of Billy Jack which had less trial scenes than The Trial of the Incredible Hulk and lacked anyone of Jack McCoy's coolness. Gah. Must get him back for that. Meadow also introduced us to Maniac Nurses Find Ecstasy and a crazy-ass cartoon called Judas and Jesus. There ... there are no words.
Here's to next year!
