Method to Madness Podcast – Dragon*Con 2011 pt1


Episode 97a: “I Publish Cute Girls’ FanFic”

Dragon*Con 2011 got a touch of The Business this year. Kevin joined a few of our friends to the World’s Largest nerd herd. This is Part 1 of his report, in which he recounts his maiden voyage into the great geek gathering.

I, unfortunately, could not join my friends this year, and I never have thus far. Economic excuses aside, it’s also been the price of my own cowardice. I want to experience everything there is at Dragon*Con, but as anyone who’s been can confirm, that is simply impossible. I’m overwhelmed by event schedules, peer synergy, and the fear of missing rare opportunities.

Thank goodness Kevin went as my proxy and he generously allowed me to experience the con vicariously through his storytelling.

In the Method to Madness podcast, Sean “The Grey Ghost” Ryan and Kevin “The Business” Gray discuss the great anime that you should be watching and the shameful anime we know you’re watching instead.

  1. I had a friend of mine went to Dragon Con and she was able to meet Ernest Borgnine when he liked her husbands Imperial Japanese uniform he wore to the convention. I wanted to go since she was there but, no money tends to limit many people.

    Yea, I think you nailed speed dating right on the head there Kevin, it is one venture I may never try to do, I don’t know. I have got to hear how this unfolds in part 2, and the omake episodes to come. I do also find amusing the expense of (overweight) girls wearing corsets that can be compared to trying to make Yokozuna fit into a Hot Topic slim t-shirt.

    Can’t wait till part 2.

  2. I’d love to see the speed dating. Not to participate, but to watch for the sheer Schadenfreude.
