What's up this year? (CC '04)

Postby Aurora on Wed Jun 23, 2004 9:06 am

So, what's going on this year? Will there be a Keen panel? If so, who's on it? Does Keenspot have a larger booth this year? Which Keenspotters will be there? Will there be any Keenspacers in the booth or elsewhere?

I'll be there. With any luck there'll be room for me to hang around the booth in such a way where I won't appear to be a crazed obsessed spectator. In any case, I plot to bring a bag along that will have drawings, high-resolution printouts, a sketchbooks, some pens, etc.

I'd like to be on the panel, but that's up to the Crosby-type-person-of-personess.

The panel will be on Friday, July 23, from 5 to 6PM (down from it's traditional 90 minutes to just an hour) in Room 8. The panelists are still being decided, but you can definitely expect his Gavness to be there. (I don't think Monsieur Crosby will be there, as he and his family have other commitments to worry about.) Unfortunately, since I'm not going this year, I don't have any other details. Sorry.

There's a ton of us going to be there.

There's discussion of "satellite events" going on.

For instance, I'm gonna bring paints and an easle and try and talk fellow keenspotters into trying their hand at painting their characters on canvas.

:)

I know Troutman and Kiwi and prolly Farber will be victimized in this way.

The usual 'Con party will happen. Now we have a 'Spotter in our household, so you can expect a more high-class affair.

Incidentally, as Howard Tayler won't be there this year, I'd be honored to offer my services as emcee.

I'm pretty sure between the 29,000 attending keenspot artists they'll be able to find somebody to do the emceeing, Scott. ;)

Bah. Have some fun with it: let a FAN introduce everyone. Sure, it could go wrong in so many ways, but at least there would be some entertainment (because if a fan is terrible at it, there's nothing to keep us from throwing tomatoes).

Look, I have years of emceeing under my belt and I am familiar with the panel and the subject matter -- it was not a random offer.

And I rather doubt there are 29,000 Keenspot artists attending.

[deadpan]That was humorous exaggeration, Scott.[/deadpan]

The truth is, there are far more keenspotters interested in being involved in the panel than there is room for.

Sorry if the obvious exaggeration and smiley face failed to convey the giggly mood in which I posted that.

S'okay.

I ... well, I offered my services, and it kind of felt like I was being laughed at.

I actually know you better than that, I apologise.

I offered because I know that sometimes even if there's a lot of people who want to do a thing, no one wants to run it -- or has any skill at it. Howard rocked as an Emcee. Many Keenspot artists would not (and no fault to them). For all I knew, no one was stepping up for the job, and someone was going to do it simply because SOMEONE needed to.

In such a case, it would be better to use someone who wants to.

The offer stands, though, just in case.

Yes... you know I'm an ass... but not a TOTAL ass! :)

Seriously, I think it may just have been funny to me because I saw all the posts about who was gonna be on the panel with pretty much everybody who's gonna be there (And there are a ton!) saying "I'd like to be involved!"

I'll be there -- though not at the Keen booth. Look for Billy West/Melonpool listed on the main floor and stop by. Lots of cool stuff this year. And, if they'll have me, I'll be in/at the panel.

Four Webcartoonists have formed an alliance under the name "bagofchips." They will be at the small press area promoting their stuff.

Two of them are from Keenspot.
