  1. I've had a dream or two about Otakon. Don't think I'll ever forget this one I had gosh, back in '03 that combined Otakon, a Creed concert & a missed wedding all into one event. All 3 events had happened within a 2 week period & strangely enough I received that freaky dream as a result of sorts. My mind works in mysterious ways...
  2. America is seriously on an energy kick these days. There's more out there to give you that extra energy boost than there ever was. I was at the store the other day & ran across Crystal Light On The Go drink mix with caffeine & B vitamins. What's next? Gatorade with herbal energy supplements? Just when I thought it was bad enough being a Pepsiholic, with Stay Awake pills on stand-by for that extra boost. I'll have the occasional energy drink when I'm in the mood, but that's about it.
  3. All I ask is that you keep Redeath on the Saturday night fan parody schedule. I love getting the chance to watch that on the big screen at Otakon in a room with a few thousand people who know it as well as I do every year. Another classic fan parody I'd like to see on the schedule this year is This Is Otakudom.
  4. Now I do agree that it is a great idea to bring some cups of ramen noodles with you, since you'll at least have a coffeemaker in the room to provide hot water. However, you can't say that nothing is open at 2am. A few years ago that was quite the valid lament, until they opened that 7-11 at the corner of Howard & Baltimore in '06 if I remember correctly.
  5. Just out of curiousity, when was the Hilton offering double bed rooms for the same price as Passkey offered? I've been checking in with the Hilton fairly often since September & the lowest rate I've been quoted is $228/night & that's if you pay for the room in advance. Otherwise it's from about $259 & up ratewise. Thus why I reserved my room thru Passkey, even though I'm still contemplating whether I'll keep it or not due to no guarantee that they'll honor my request for 2 beds. Also I truly doubt I'll be able to get any Hilton Honors points for my stay due to the fact that i
  6. The most I've ever spent for Otakon was around $650, & that was my first anime con ever. Ever since, I seem to spend less money every year & my friends have always envied me for this. It's all in how you budget your money. Also, I'm certainly not the 1st one to admit that one of the many reasons I started Gofering for Otakon was just to save money in the long run. To be entirely truthful, I'm one of those that uses my tax return as my yearly con budget. I've planned out my cons that way ever since I started attending more than just Otakon in '06. For years, to me it's lik
  7. Wow, it's the end of an anime era I tell you. Even though I technically haven't watched Toonami in years, I'm sad to hear it's come to an end. I didn't really get into anime myself until I started watching it on Toonami...
  8. Took me a few tries, but I've finally gotten the hang of Mario Kart Wii. Doesn't help that I don't have a Wii myself, however my best friend does. I play when he falls asleep on me & I'm still wide awake, was doing that last night & unlocked all the Cups on the 50cc level. I was so happy, I finally got to play the new Rainbow Road! Even though I bounced off of it at least a dozen times the 1st try... Wasn't my friend surprised to find that I won all the cups though! I'm not known to be the best at video games, however I've always had a talent for the driving games. I've found the W
  9. Wow, in all the years I've been going to Otakon, never have me & my friends driven down Sharp St under the hallway connecting the 3rd floor of the BCC. Guess we never saw a reason to. I say my silent goodbye every year as I'm walking out of the BCC for the last time on Sunday.
  10. Ok, I'll admit it. I finally managed to find the patience to reserve a room at the Hilton from Thu-Sun through the Passkey site the other night. Still don't like that site, however now I have 2 hotel rooms reserved for Otakon next year, heaven help me... The worst part is, I think I might actually know enough people who just may finally come next year to fill those rooms too. Either way, I think I'll be staying at the Hilton Baltimore, just for the experience.
  11. Awesome comics, I enjoyed them the whole way through. Too many rang true for me & made me laugh. Brilliantly done I say!
  12. I voted for the lower hotel prices myself, but could've easily chosen both. I have no problem with next years con dates being announced at Closing Ceremonies, it's better than waiting in anticipation for the announcement. However this rush to reserve a room just after the con? Ridiculous. I've never even contemplated reserving a room this early in previous years. Even last year a room in my group wasn't reserved until November & we were still able to get a room in the Inner Harbor. I don't think I can say the same for this year, thus why I have a room reserved already. As far as
  13. Well, after checking the reservation system numerous times & getting entirely too frustrated with it, I really don't like it... I decided to reserve my room the old fashioned way, dealing with the hotel directly over the phone. Decided to stay at the Sheraton City Center again, but after going around & around with their reservations for a week, getting 2 different rates, etc I finally gave up on Wednesday & called the Radisson. With no problems whatsoever I was able to reserve a 2 double bed room Thu-Sun for $185 a night with an early check-in. I can live with that, I stayed
  14. I used to suffer from PCD after Otakon, however this year it didn't really have time to develop. I was too tired to even contemplate being depressed about Otakon being over after cosplaying as a Staff member for the weekend. Then after recovering, I found to my amazement that I should be planning for next year already! Who has time to suffer from PCD this time around? Besides I've long ago found a way to get over any type of PCD by planning my next con, I'm going to attempt going to 4 cons this year! 2 down, 2 to go. NYAF & MangaNext here I come!
  15. I not only took a pic of Deathscythe, I kinda wound up introducing myself to you Gordon! It was nice to finally meet you too. Your friend did a really good job with his cosplay.
