Sup, y’all? I’ve been absurdly busy over the past few weeks. Between Tekko, Easter, and all the other real life stuff, I’ve been leaving this space rather neglected. Because this is my hobby and not my full profession, other things take precedence, but I will try to further my involvement on this blog while furthering my pursuits on this vocation.
MelloPanther @ Tekkoshocon X-2
Not gonna lie, Tekko was a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. On Friday, I ran my “How To Run A Panel” Workshop, hosted The Game of Shows, and emceed the always-hilarious Tekko Improv, this year featuring Uncle Yo. If you didn’t catch me on Saturday in actual cosplay (thanks to Tekkoshocon Founder Rebecca for that), you may have caught me Saturday night running the board for the 8th year(!) of Anime Fight Club. Tekko is always a fun time–next year will be my tenth–and I’d like to thank Jim, Jeanie, Ada, Dan, and the rest of the staff for putting on an awesome show.
Catching up with old business
The Puzzle Strike footage still isn’t ready yet, mostly because I haven’t had time to sit down to edit it, but it had a great impact. While there were 14 participants, one person who couldn’t make it was my acquaintance, and board game aficionado TJ. Apparently, he wasn’t all that aware of the game, but that quickly changed. Armed with the knowledge that anyone can play Puzzle Strike both online and offline, TJ returned to the underwater moon base of CGRUndertow and produced this short film. I hope you enjoy it.
That’s all for now, but work on the next convention has already started, whenever and wherever it may be.
