I want to say NEO NOHCON was a blast this weekend, but it wasn't... because it didn't happen. The major snowstorm that hit us this weekend caused the convention to be canceled, much to my disappointment. Learning of this only after I arrived in snowy Buffalo, NY certainly complicated things as well.
That's not to say I didn't have a great weekend anyway. I had the pleasure of hanging out with the Daemen College Anime Club, the organizers of the convention, who took very good care of me despite the harsh weather. You folks were beyond awesome and I cannot express my gratitude enough for your generosity and endearing craziness. Much love to Annie, DeeDee, Bear, Roshi, James, Tinky, Daneesha, and everyone else whose names I have either misspelled or forgotten.
I also had the pleasure of hanging out with the small squad of guests that were also around for the convention. Much love and hugs to Samantha Inoue Harte, Kyle Hebert, Lucien Dodge, and Professor Brent Wilson & his lovely wife Marge. Oh, and Li and Akiko? I'm sorry we didn't get to hang out more. Oh, and Jonathan? F-ck you, Colonel.
Next up is the insanity that is ANIME BOSTON. I'll be selling the Charity Shirt there alongside the usual merchandise and all proceeds will still go to the Matthew Foster Foundation.
