  1. You didn't have any comments! Well, now you do!

  2. I find it rather shocking that this hotel still seems to have alot of rooms left. I would have thought that it would sell out fairly quickly since it is connected to the con center and I think that some Otakon things are going to be held in it. From what pictures I've seen--I'm not local, so I can't actually confirm this--the new Hilton's pretty tiny and has way less rooms than the other hotels in the Inner Harbor. Google says there are 183 guest rooms in the building, compared to the Sheraton's 337, the former Wyndam's 707, the Holiday Inn's 375, or the Day's Inn's 263. Color me co

  4. Er, I hope this isn't necroing a dead post, but I'm the lolita gofer who played Mafia with you! It was lots of fun!
  5. My favorite summer road trip music is almost anything by Orange Range or The Pillows. Their music just sounds like summer to me.
  6. I think the DR line is a leftover from the days when you couldn't just find the neat merchandise you wanted readily. Part of the fun of the DR was to find things that you'd never seen before--usually at a 200% markup!--and getting there early could be the difference between scoring a sweet rare plush or just getting the common other half of the set.
  7. Funny is when you work your butt off for 11 months, then work like a madman for a solid week, to bring other people 3 days of fun, and you don't get to see it yourself. I will--and have before--get myself into trouble by adamantly praising you guys for that! Your awesomeness knows no bounds.
  8. Haha, that's awesome! I've had Otakon-related dreams, too, but they're not so pleasant; most of them were about having an extra hotel room that I forgot to cancel until the day of the convention. After a week of that, I've double-triple checked my plans quite thoroughly!
  9. I'm still trying to flesh out my group, but I always meet up with other groups once we get there, and I know lots of random people who go, so I know I'll have someone to hang out with at any given moment. It's just a matter of whom, at least until I get there! I'm also bringing my brother for his first con since 2001, which'll be interesting, too!
  10. ...or the Charles Street arts district and restaurant corridor. Some good eats up there, as well as in Fells Point. Mmm, Fells Point. I've got an annual event up there, and this'll make getting there loads easier on my frilly ladies! You wouldn't happen to mean the tea room that was down (in fells point) there, would you? When I was there last weekend it was gone. Yeah, they've moved their head of operations, IIRC. The one in Fells Point is--or at least was last year--only open for special events/reservations. Though I haven't yet started negotiating this year'

  12. My budget this year is $1000 for the weekend, including hotel/food/transportation/whatnot, plus $400 for the plane ticket. I've already got $700 set aside, so I think I'm going at a good pace. Half down, half to go, and half a year left!
  13. ORSOME. No competition for rooms/parking/food! Also, less people in the city (maybe not, haha)!
  14. Have you not seen the "Tainted Donuts" AMV with Spike and his crew trying to collect the bounty on Vash? Sheer genius. As for the argument on hand, I have to agree that "Yuri the Only One for Me" wasn't really an AMV. I don't have a problem with original music in an AMV, as long as it's good, or with original animation (though not in the AMV contest), but the video in question didn't have anything to do with anime aside from sly references in the song. If neither the song nor the animation come from an anime, how is it an Anime Music Video? It was very cute, and could have done well a
  15. While I didn't utilize that particular discount, I think it's pretty awesome of them to offer it, period. I think maybe they're too close to offer that kind of thing, though, maybe? It's not like they'd have to worry about drawing people a whole two blocks away from the convention center, you know?
