Hi folks! As promised to the folks on http://www.tvtropes.org here's a look at the "TV Tropes Will Ruin Your Life" panel at Anime Detour 2011.

Hope to see more tropers next time! Anyone coming to ConVergence?

The Programming folks at ConVergence have issued a partial schedule with the panels that have enough people. "Gunpowder and Bloodshed: Dark Heroes of the Pulps" and "Villains of Manga and Anime" aren't on there yet.

So, if you're going to ConVergence and would like one or the other of these panels to be run, please consider actually signing up as a panelist so they can get on the schedule.

Thanks for your attention!

Good News!

My hotel reservation for ConVergence has finally come through, so barring some major recanting on the part of the hotel or the concom, I will be able to control my own timeline at the convention.

Speaking of which, ConVergence Programming has started taking requests for seating on possible panels. These are the ones I've penciled in as wanting to be on (as opposed to just attending.)

* Villains of Anime and Manga
* Gunsmoke and Bloodshed: Dark Heroes of the Pulps
(I suggested both these panels in the first place, so it was kind of mandatory that I sign up to help make them happen.)
* Disney Villains
* Giant Atomic Monsters
* Villains in Role-Playing Games
* Behind the Sofa: Villains of Doctor Who
* The Pulps
* Current Popular Manga
* Bring Me Up To Speed (a comics panel)
* Old Time Radio

I might sign up for more when the "on the bubble" list comes out.

I'm off to ConVergence tomorrow!

It looks to be a busy weekend, with seven panels to be on.

3:30 PM Thursday: Diversity in Comics--First panel slot of the convention, but I am bringing a handout prepared with the help of the folks at Girl-Wonder.org. One of two panels I'll be sharing with Dwayne McDuffie, woot!

12:30 PM Friday: Gaming Etiquette. Should be a very polite panel.

2:00 PM Friday: Humor in Superhero Comics. A long historic tradition.

5:00 PM Friday: Old Time Radio. I hope to do my radio announcer voice.

8:30 PM Friday: Manga and Graphic Novels. Compare and contrast.

11:00 AM Saturday: Justice League Past, Present and Future. The other panel starring Mr. McDuffie. This one might be a bit awkward.

3:30 PM Sunday: What's Wrong with the Japanese? A look at some of the more...interesting aspects of Japanese entertainment culture. This is in the A/V room, so will have pictures! And it's the last panel slot at the con, so everyone will be pleasantly exhausted.

In between times, I'll be attending other panels, checking out the art show and huckster rooms, and if I am very lucky meeting old and new friends. I won't be around in the wee hours though, as I have to catch the shuttle bus over to the Crowne Plaza to sleep.
