Can't wait for Power-Con! See you all there!
Awesome to hear you'll be attending! Can't wait to meet you, and hope you don't mind signing some M.A.S.K stuff!!!
Jill (my wife) and I will be there, just filling out the paperwork for a vendor table :hmgrin:
It's going to be great to meet you at Power-Con, Jack! :hmgrin:
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there. My apologies for not responding sooner to posts. Please see my new thread in the Other Discussions forum.
A born Californian here. And I wish I could return for Power-Con this year. Money sadly can't allow it. I dealt with some transportation issues when my mother's health just recently failed her. She has recovered thankfully. But the Power-Con money I had saved took a drastic hit. I am dearly hoping to make it to my first Con hopefully next year.
Thank you so much for the prayers you and yours have offered for my mother. That is very kind and generous of you. It saddens me that I am unable to attend the Con this year. I had money all set up for a Gooble pass, but it depleted real quick with commuting back and forth and other things in this situation. She had a minor heart attack. But she had to have 3 stents put in for the arteries they had to unclog.
It was my mom that helped me get into NA after I had started really becoming a fan of both the He-Man and She-Ra properties. I wore out my VHS copy of Secret of the Sword, and we had recorded the 5 episodes of NA on vhs which in time also got wore out. I had hoped I could go this year and represent us both. But fate it seems hath kicked me square. So I'm very content with corresponding with other He-Fans and I will be very impatient for the next Con.
Shame I can't go to the Con.
Jack, your work on shows like NA, Care Bears etc, was a huge part of shaping my childhood and teaching me valuable moral lessons. Not to mention the amazing advice and example you give here on the forums.
Big shame I'll probably never get to meet you :sksad:
Hope there's a thread on here afterwards where people post their pics with you and describe their experiences in meeting you. :hmgrin:
Thank you for this, Killian. Your words truly touch my heart.
I believe that all writers who labor in the children's entertainment industry realize that they have an extraordinary responsibility because of how their work can have an influence upon young and impressionable minds. Like the overwhelming majority of my fellow writers of children's entertainment, I take that responsibity very seriously. It is a particular joy and blessing to be able to play a small part in the shaping of children's minds and to contribute to their positive development. Infusing value-rich, pro-social ways of thinking and being into my work is of paramount importance to me and something I constantly strive to do in my writing, along with making it entertaining. Posts like yours both humble and fill me with joy by helping me to realize I have achieved my goals at times. I'm very grateful for this...and I'm very grateful to you for your kind words.
We will be there as vendors officially for my store but alas it will be too early for Jack to deliver me my virtual drink for the election :hmwink:
Should be a great time, I await the NA Panel :hmgrin:
So how did Power-Con treat you, Jack?
