    The first Power-Con I shall not attend. End of August = terrible.

    I hope everyone has fun though!

    I'm still jetlagged from 2017, but I will certainly aim to return in 2018.

    Just checked, and flights are 60% more expensive in August than September from Ireland, so will have to see how budgeting is for next year! We're also booking Orlando for the family, so that's an easy $12k gone. So Power-Con will be toward the bottom of the priority list (not for me - for my wife, lol).

    Hopefully can make it. Had an AMAZING time this year.

    C'Mon man. You have to give more details than that.
    "I wouldn't be surprised if this movie has Adam as a skinny nerd from Earth battling another skinny nerd-hacker from Earth that used an alias of Keldor. They then enter Tron-style to a cyber world called Eternia, where they control muscle-bound avatars to battle (called He-Man and Skeletor). And these same avatars come to life and continue to battle in present-day Earth." - VZX

    I finally cashed in 11 years of Brownie points with my wife and providing I can get a US visa, I will definitely be attending this one!

    This does mean that I have 0 points left to get me out of trouble for a while.

    Definitely planning to go next year. I had tickets this year and couldn't make it last minute and have been bummed out since. Eager to make it next year.

    Extremely happy about the change to August!

    I hope I can make it next year. Right now it seems I can make it but I thought the same thing last year about PC2017.

    I haven't been to an Org gathering since SDCC 2010!

    Unfortunately, it conflicts with my work schedule (first week of the Fall semester).

    Samesies, likely. Late aug/early September is the worst for academics. Well, also finals weeks - I'd teach for free, but the grading? That's why you have to pay me ::

    Just because I'm curious... how does that work? Meaning, how do you teach for free but only get paid for grading?

    It's a joke

    As in, I *love* teaching, but grading is often a slog, and so I only do it because I'm getting paid to.

    In reality, I get paid to teach and grade, and truthfully, evaluation is part of the pedagogy.

    Ooooohh, I'll be the doctor then: "Hello, this is Dr. Scroogendunkle. I am afraid TheShadow will be unable to come into work from August 24th thru August 27th as he is currently suffering from an upper respiratory infection of the hematoma gland in the prioritory lobe."
    I have finally returned from Despondos.

    It will be interesting to see. As far as voice actors and movie stars are concerned, it seems like they've gotten most of the "big" MOTU names that are willing to do conventions over the last two years (except maybe Dolph who probably costs an arm and a leg). Maybe, a few repeats from 2016 since there is a Filmation theme? There are a lot of behind the scenes Filmation talent (ie, writers) that haven't been used for awhile.

    Managed to convince my wife we should all go, using the lure of Disneyland too, ha! Very excited. Had such an amazing time this year.
