Even though this community is listed as the blues we're not all about just the sad & depressing times at conventions. You are encouraged to share anything embarrassing or crazy or silly beyond words that has happened to you at any event you've attended. It helps if it's related to the event you were at but so long as it happened on·site you're still welcome to post about it here.
To keep things simpler, for those that might wanna see what happened at an event they might've missed, please list the convention you were at in the tags field.
Many thanks to the folks at con_central (Clicky!) for the listings of conventions. Those provided went into the interests lists and those provided with links went on the links list.
Regarding the mood theme: It wasn't until my first convention, where I actually spent the night, that I truly appreciated the beauty that is drunk geeks. Being a geek myself I'd certainly seen a few but not so many in mass quantities and intriguing variations. That and I first saw Jackie Chan's drunken boxing films when I was working as a volunteer at a convention so it kinda just made sense to have a drunken boxer for the mood here.
If you want to advertise any kind of community please do so at We·Need·a·Life and not here. I used to allow advertising in any of my communities if it kept to the theme of that community but I'd like to cut down on that a bit...until it dwindles to nothing.
