ricewater_stool: WTF is dragon con?


It's a meeting of people who want to see what it's like outside of their mother's basement.
 
2012-08-30 05:36:56 PM  
I'm only going if you move it to Swagneto's house.

From what I hear? The major convention with the loosest restrictions on which costumes are considered "appropriate."
 
2012-08-30 05:49:18 PM  
Yeah I read Hitler Bar.

A place where sports nuts, anime people, furries, movie fanatics, fan-bois of (insert whatnot here), gamers, comics collectors, and etc have a head-on collision all at the same time. DragonCon, apply directly to the forehead!

That chick will be there at some party on Sunday. A 6pm-10pm pool party.

For this, I would be down. Except I am in SE Asia.
 
2012-08-30 05:53:17 PM  
Haven't been there in a few years, but man if D*C folks don't know how to party. Lordy, there's some fun there. (Especially the 501st Legion folks.)

Said chick, and any other hot chicks, are the exception rather than rule.

Thankfully I will be in Way The Fark North Georgia. A good thing for me as well as the DorkenCon folks.

Looking forward to my first D*C and first Fark Party. Keep an eye out for a Vaultdweller.

/Not a reference to Mom's basement.
 
2012-08-30 06:08:38 PM  
I am seriously debating on if I want to go or not. Damn pricey hotels.
 
2012-08-30 06:12:34 PM  
I'm at Dragon*Con. I'm a chick. Maybe I'll show up... with my 6'3 Viking bodyguard.
 
2012-08-30 06:21:55 PM  
Wow, a Fark Party at DragonCon? That's some highly concentrated nerddom.

Also known as DrunkenCon.
 
2012-08-30 06:43:44 PM  
I'm not going to this, but there is a dude on my face book feed who has been posting pics of his costume making process for month. It's DAMN involved the dedication this person has shown. Hope you guys meet him!

/don't ask me who his costume is, I have no farking idea, but it looks really on point

ricewater_stool: WTF is dragon con?


For the geeky fandom crowd, it's like mashing together the Super Bowl, Christmas, your birthday, losing your virginity, and your first drunken blackout episode all into one event.

/And lots and lots of guys in baggy tshirts, shorts, and white ankle socks... it's like a uniform
 
2012-08-30 06:53:51 PM  
Yee haw! HoeDown At DragonCon!

I actually worked at the first two Dragon*Con's way, way back in the day... nerds as far as the eye can see. It was glorious.

Unfortunately, it takes place on the same weekend as the Starlight Six's Drive Invasion, so I haven't been in a while, and won't be going this year because I'm not in Atlanta anymore.

But all you going have a blast! Try to get laid! Yub nub, muthafarkers!
 
2012-08-30 07:31:03 PM  
I'll be there but perhaps a bit late. I'll try to get out of work early.

Also, for anyone else who isn't attending the con (did I mention work?) I called the Hilton and they said no problem getting into the bar with no badge.

I would tell you guys how to get REALLY nerdy on Friday night, but I think inviting the internet to a Magic: The Gathering game might be frowned upon by the group.
 
2012-08-30 08:32:33 PM  

Nayest: Yeah I read Hitler Bar.


Me too. I thought it was a reference to that jackass with the Hitler clothing store.
 
2012-08-30 08:50:18 PM  
Nerdi Gras!!!
I'm glad Kidney Stone isn't there as well, 1 less idiot to deal with. Have fun riding your little tricycle.
 
2012-08-30 09:11:02 PM  
I went to dragon con last year for the first time and I cannot emphasize how much fun it is. I like my sci fi and all but far from a "nerd" and it was a top five time of my life.
 
2012-08-30 09:38:21 PM  
i might go watch the parade in the morning, but have no desire to drop a lot of cash for hanging out there
 
2012-08-30 09:44:28 PM  
I used to work in the building directly behind (and connected) to the Hilton (one of SunTrust's big office buildings). DragonCon was (to say the least) unique. During one of these events, I was working in what had been a regular bank branch on the first floor. The entire exterior wall is windows, so we were treated to all of the smokers taking their breaks in full costume. There was the occasional nerdilingus going on as well.

My first year living in Midtown the Gay Pride parade snuck up on me. I never stopped to think that I lived on Peachtree St.

Hungover on Saturday morning and checked the window to find that the terrible cacophany outside was the local Dykes on Bikes (what the banner said) waving to a full crowd.

Maybe the most entertaining three hours I've spent looking out my window, but made trying to get lunch take forever.

Still better than the marathon with the loud girl yelling "ONE MORE MILE" to everyone who ran by.

And yes you have to live with these things living downtown but the other 300 people on the corner weren't that loud.

Won't be in town on Saturday, but I was hanging out at the Marriott tonight in a cheap Wonder Woman costume. I had a blast!!! Wish I could stay for the whole weekend, but I'll definitely plan better next year.

If any of you fellow Farkers happened to get a cute picture of me, please send (i was too busy snapping pics of everyone else). EIP.
 
2012-08-31 12:39:19 AM  
Man, I wish I could have made it this year! Hope you guys have a great turnout for the Fark Party! DUKE SUCKS!
 
2012-08-31 04:45:10 AM

Dragon*Con

From their website: Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe!
 
2012-08-31 07:36:44 PM  
I see a couple of my favorite authors are attending:

Sherrilyn Kenyon
Chelsea Quinn Yarbro
 
2012-08-31 07:39:15 PM  
That's it, next year I'm going to the con.

Been saying that since I moved to Atlanta, in '99.
 
2012-08-31 07:40:22 PM  
Will most likely be making an appearance after my 5-year extended lurk ;)
 
2012-08-31 07:42:03 PM  
*rawr* Ms. Mapes.

Indubitably: *rawr* Ms. Mapes.

FYI: I'm thinking that pool party is the Secretroom Party at the Sheraton on Sat night.
