Feels like I've been fairly MIA over the last couple of weeks, not least because I have migrated down to North Carolina to hang with the beautiful mmefrankenstein
. We've watched a lot of movies (all of which have had the recurring theme of Robert Downey Jr.) and eaten a lot of delicious Home Cooked Meals.
She had a table at Animazement this weekend, and we ended up doing fairly well. We combined our powers--her artistic brilliance and my ability to irritate/flatter people into buying things when the shiny simply wasn't enough. As it turned out, Animazement is a PG-13 con(?) I'm not even fairly sure what that means, except that there wasn't much hentai in the Dealer's Room, and there were a bunch of parents there with the children. I saw three people with "I <3 Jesus" on their badges. Also, people would look through the art at our table, see boys hugging each other and say, "Look, yaoi!" Believe me when I tell you, it was tame stuff. Some people were delighted, while others were repulsed. We actually had a boy physically recoil. Ah, the south. Apart from that we did get a lot of classy art, and got to meet one of mmefrankenstein
's favorite manga-ka.
Last night we saw Prince of Persia, which was sort of fantastically bad, but also fun to watch and pretty to look at. I reccomend it to anyone who likes the game.
I discovered Eternal Poison in the used section of a GameStop today. Looking forward to playing it--it looks and sounds excellent.
