I asked earlier because I had/have an opportunity to go on sunday if I pay ticket cost and for some gas - but I can't justify the trip in general. I've taken a look at the booth lists and games that may be playable there and I can't justify the ~4 hour trip there and ~4 trip back for one day of events. Maybe next year.

If anyone's planning on going to Anime Central this year, the hotels are filling up fast.

I might know a guy who can get you a room if you're up for some "Oh, this is where the stigma against filthy bachelors comes from", and "Oh my! This couch is  so comfortable!", and possibly riding PUBLIC TRANSIT...

You can't pay $5 round-trip?

Or you can't afford a hotel room.
This isn't a hotel room. It's a guy's spare room.

I'll be in Boston for PAX East in 20 hours or so. If you find me, I'll tell you the secrets of Vampires and Werewolves.

Anyone going to Origins? I need only a gentle nudge to convince me to go. (Also hotel roomates would help)

I can go to Origins but it partially depends on how many will be in a room. If we can get four in the room I won't feel too bad on the money end about going.

Looks like I'll be making it to Phoenix Comicon this year.

Hm.  Wonder what I should have Phil LaMarr sign -- my JLU DVD, or Pulp Fiction?

I'm still disappointed I missed my chance to have Charles Barkley sign that.

Did you at least get him to say "If you can't slam like the best, then jam with the rest."?

Is he charging a fee? As long as you're not that asshole with a rolling suitcase expecting people to sign 200 issues of a comic run I've never had a guest balk at signing a few things.

Turns out that yeah he wanted $20 for an autograph and that's too rich for my blood.  He was very personable, though; he recognized the Joker on my T-shirt as a Jerry Robinson and said he'd gotten to meet him once.

Got (free) autographs from Stuart Immonen (on Nextwave #1) and Ethan van Sciver (who I had previously argued with on the Internet).

Weird, I wouldn't have expected LaMarr to be high-enough profile to charge. I mean, I suppose he is in everything that needs a black character who sounds exactly the same as all his other characters but still.

He's done some samey parts, but don't sell his range short; I don't think I'd have known Static, GL, JARVIS, and Hermes Conrad were all the same guy as the UPS Guy from Mad TV if somebody hadn't told me.

Anyway, seems like KMR's the guy getting all the Samey Black Guy Cartoon Voices now.  (And he's got range too -- I wouldn't figure Cleveland Jr and Lester the Redneck were the same dude -- but yeah Panthro and Kilowog sound exactly the same.)

Still, twenty bucks?  Nah.  Only dude at the con I'd consider paying $20 for an autograph was Ed Asner.  Wish I'd brought something for him to sign (Superman, Up, whatever), but I figured the line for him would be 'round the block.  It actually wasn't!
