Alex is going to Otakon in Baltimore!

Postby Alex Steacy » 12 Jul 2009, 04:29

Yes folks, in just four days I will be on the road south to the Baltimore convention centre for Otakon 2009. I will be exhibiting with my friend Lauralee in the "Cactus Mafia" booth (I'll find out the address number) for the duration of the con, so here's hoping I can meet some of you guys and dolls!

...Assuming anyone who watches LRR lives in or around Baltimore.

But is no one else here going?

Have a blast, but otakon is out of reach for me... I don't know if he's going to be there, but if a comedian called Uncle Yo is performing, be sure to try and catch him and tell him I say hi... if he's not, disregard everything after "me..."

If I didn't have summer classes I could probably go as I never realized how close Baltamore is to South NJ.

Still out of my reach. But a friend is going. I'll tell him to say I said Hi if he sees you.

I'd go, except that no I wouldn't because the very idea repulses me.

Oh come on, Anime cons aren't THAT bad. Sure they're populated by squealing teens, but without them you and your friends wouldn't have anything to be catty about.

Plus when you're a dealer you get to relieve exactly those people of huge amounts of money.

Wow, the guy loves where he lives. It must be a horrible place. I'm sorry, I stand corrected.

MMMM taste that sarcasm

I meant its not a terrible place per se its just some of the people are dicks about it, like when he said that phrase it was included with a jab to the face, which as i was under age could be considered assault, i mentioned this in a passing to a ranger and they said that. Its ya you think its good but dont be a douche about it and many texans ive met/worked with have.

Its like where i live, the Grand Canyon, people come here all the time and say "WOW what a great place to be, you are lucky to live here" and i retort with "No, its BFE, middle no where, over priced everything, even for locals, and nearest TOWN is 60miles away"

Everyone I've met from Texas is singularly awesome. Of course, that's the whole problem of anecdotal vs. statistical data.

HOWEVER.

Baltimore is a poop-hole, according to my fiance. But then, we're spoiled by Victoria and Vancouver.

My Dad often travels to Baltimore a few times a year for his job, and he absolutely hates the place, as does the people he works with.

Also, just because you, gcninja, have met some assholes from here, it doesn't mean this place is anything like Baltimore. In anyway. I used to live in Washington State from when I was 5 to 19 years old. I'm almost 22 now and I would much rather live here. And I've seen more stereotypical redneck, flag-waving douchebags in Washington.

Sure is flame war around here...

Getting back to the topic at hand, I'll be there for the duration of the con with buttons and signs for sale, so feel free to come by and say hi - there will probably be a genuine LRR business card in it for you!

Have fun Alex. I've always wanted to go to Otakon ever since I played through MGS. Alas, I live on the other side of the country. Oh well, at least I have AX :/
