PAX East 2011

Last month I went to the 2nd annual PAX East held in Boston. This has the special distinction of being the first non-furry convention I've ever been to. It was definitely a blast and well worth going to. If you're into gaming of any type, I would certainly recommend this as something to go to if you can.

First off, the expo floor was quite huge with tons of game demos and such.

Hello PAX!

Kyell Gold in NYC this weekend!

kyellgold is going to be in NYC this Saturday doing a signing for Isolation Play, the sequel to Out Of Position. I am quoting this from his journal:

Hey, if you're coming to see me Saturday in NYC, then yay! I'm really looking forward to seeing you guys and meeting the east coast fans.

The reading/signing will be Saturday, March 26, at Bluestockings, which I am told is on the Lower East Side, at 172 Allen St. near Houston. We would like them to be happy about this event and get a good impression of furries, so even if you're not buying one of my books, I hope you'll be able to grab a snack at their cafe, maybe pick up one of the other excellent books they stock, or contribute to the store when they pass around the donations hat.

I figure I'll do about a 15-20 minute reading (from "Isolation Play") to start at 7, then I'll take some questions from people, and lastly I'll sign books and hang around to chat. Things will wind down between 9 and 9:30, and at 9:30 I will have to take off to get a late dinner.

The website of the store is http://bluestockings.com/

Hope many of the locals can make it!

Cool rap!

This guy did a rap song using the Zelda theme. He's actually not too bad.

Some of his other stuff is good too. I like his Rubik's Cube rap:)

Some free time while in Cali next week

I will be staying with friends in the town of Hayward during my stay next week before the con.
Looks like I will be having some free time during the day from Monday through Wednesday of next week while they are at work.

Anyone free that would wanna hang during that time? I could be dropped off at a train station and meet people if necessary. Let me know :)

The New Harry the Husky!

So Harry the Husky, the mascot for the University of Washington, got a revamped costume late this year. Check it out.

Is it just me, or does he look like he was made by a fursuit maker?:) Not bad at all, honestly.

Being Santa Paws Again

Guess what I got to do again at the family Christmas party this year ^^

It seems like ever since I did it as Bobby back in 2007, they want me to suit at every family Christmas party now! The new tradition is that I get in suit right before midnight on Christmas Eve. Then after midnight, I come out in suit and hand out the presents while each person sits on my lap and takes a picture with their wrapped present. I also have fun with the kids and mess around with the adults as well, of course!

It's become a fun tradition :) I've done it as Bobby, Ozzy, JD and now Bolt. There are two pics below from previous years.

Since my family knows I was a school mascot in college (My mom even saw me perform), the whole fursuit thing makes sense to them and makes it easy for me to explain why I have them. It also helps to explain that I do charity work in suit. They also just think it's really cute too^^

We'll see what happens next Christmas!
