  1. The Good: Otakon still going on in some way, even though we could not be at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center together. People willing to volunteer their time to entertain us. Much appreciated! 😀 🤜🤛 🙂 The Bad: The volume levels on the presentations were all over the map. You could barely hear one person, but have your ears blown off when changing to a different channel. Would have liked to see a dedicated Anime channel, even if it was something we have seen 100s of times. Twitch has done Pokemon and Yugi Oh marathons, so it may be possible to get rights to broadcast something old or not very popular (original Ronin Warriors?). The Ugly: COVID-19! 🤬
  2. I saw some of it, and was jokingly going to put up a Good, Bad, Ugly thread for it. 🤭
  3. You can start fermenting your own con funk and have it ready by Saturday. Pop the sealed lid and PEW! Just like being at the real convention. 😆
  4. It is the end of game ownership. You rent the game until the company decides to pull the plug.
  5. I try to take the stairs when I can. That time in Baltimore where we were on the 24th floor I had to make exceptions. 😺
  6. First year I have not been to an Otakon since 1993. 😧
  7. I agree that this virus will whip around in some form again as the weather gets cooler. With respect to a virtual convention, it would seem like a complete waste for me. I don't want to sit there for 8+ hours staring at my 13 inch laptop screen with headphones, and the choices of content would be much more limited. Personally, I watch the new sub-titled anime at Otakon. The licensing contracts for broadcasting things would be a legal nightmare. Alabaster has mentioned before that level of licensing is one of the reasons they can't simulcast content at the convention. Can you imagine the Dealer's Hall, and its associated line, in a COVID-19 world? The chances that the convention would still be held don't seem very high. If it was postponed to later in the year all of us would have to fight for hotel spaces again. The animation and computer simulation industries are the only ones that can continue to produce content right now. Voice actors can still do their jobs with the right equipment. Movie and Television production has shut down, so the Fall TV season will be bleak.
  8. Not everyone is doing well in confinement. Some couples have found out it difficult to coexist by getting on each other's nerves, and at least a few celebrities have said as much. In the end the boom may be more of a pop.
  9. Let's hope the only Pandemic you encounter is from Accept. 😀
  10. Well, to be fair I did have a couple of gadgets he probably didn't, like a teaspoon and an open mind.
