Worst Southcon Ever Interest Thread
« on: June 24, 2008, 02:45:06 PM »

12 people, 3 wolves, 1 seer.

This is merely an interest thread.  Discussion on dates should go here.  Once a date's been hammered out, THEN I'd do a signup thread or whatever.

So yeah, Worst Southcon Ever.  Well, it wouldn't be the worst ever, because the last two I tried to do ended in failure.  Thankfully, the prime roadblock is gone, and now I can do things with relative impunity.  Who'd love to come to the Dallas/Fort Worth area and kick it with all your forum buddies?

I know I would

EDIT: Holy shit, I just realized I used the forbidden name or whatever.  Can someone with the pimp juice fix it for me?

Added a third option to the poll.  Elaborate in your post, plox.

The problems with holding such an event in Texas are twofold.

First, it involves traveling to Texas.  This is both expensive and unpleasant.

Second, it will involve dealing with Texans.  This is likewise unpleasant.

I concur. I wouldn't be able to go that far. Not without having to stay in at least one haunted motel.

Dallas has attempted to murder me on multiple occasions.

http://www.gamevideos.com/video/id/5012

Not seen: repeated interruptions by fat couples in cowboy hats while filming intro. "What y'all doin?" "Filming a documentary about motherfuckers who interrupt me while I'm trying to work." Which disappointingly never ended in a gunfight. Damn if I don't wish that had made the cut.

No, not particularly keen on Texas. Outside of Austin, which is kind of a bubbled Atlantis of sanity in a sea of fuck this.

I was just in Austin a month ago, for my sister's graduation.  Sitting under a giant confederate flag, watching a crowd of 10,000+ people solemnly singing to the tune of "I've been working on the railroad" while fireworks shoot out of the sniping tower, a day after the president of the university gave a lecture on the sin of pride as his graduation speech for the English department ... no, that city is not fucking sane.

Texas. Low bar.

And really, get out some while you're there. Surprises aplenty, besides the bats under the fucking bridge. Good times to be had and a comparative lack of fuckheadery, even if the strippers will be shot if they don't wear pasties.

Yes, Austin is awesome.  That is why I am sad I will not be living there any longer, but such is life.  And for the record, part of the reason I'm leaving is because my bandmates totally flaked on me.  Jerks.

Also, this happening in Dallas/Ft Worth is doable.

Short of us winning the war on terror, I just can't wedge in the time or money on such a thing.  Unless I could find some air taxi pilots, who I hear are considerably cheaper than major hub transit.

As a resident of Wichita, this would be doable.  Preferably in August or later.

I forgot you live over there.  Being over in KSC, if we could work out a carpool to split the costs, it could be feasible.  The only real problem then is I can't use vacation days until early November.

Which is why I stirred up talk of this now, because I know that getting people here would require a lot of in-advance logistics for those who want to come.  And as far as alternate locations, Austin is also doable, I just chose DFW because

1. International air terminal.  Might mean cheaper air fares (yeah right with all the layoffs and crap)
2. I have a place to host it here.

As far as activities, I would entertain a trip to Six Flags (depending on the season), maybe a Rangers/Stars/Mavericks game.  I absolutely refuse to go to a Cowboys game.  This is all just random suggestion.  I know of a couple awesome restaurants in Fort Worth (If you come here, you gotta have a burger at Kincaid's.)  I must confess, being away from home for a couple of years really destroys some of the familiarity you have with the place.
