It was a crazy idea to put on cardboard boxes and run around a sci-fi convention back in 2004. It was a crazier idea to do it again in 2005 as ghetto stormtroopers and to crash so many long-cherished costume contests with our whacky brand of earnest all-cardboard dedication. It was yet a crazier idea to found an all-cardboard science fiction convention back in 2010 but look at us… it’s been 5 years of Cardboard*Con and we’re on the path to legitimacy, what with a mention in the “Must-Do South” March issue of Atlanta Magazine and inquiries from other media outlets. Am I proud? Absolutely! But better than that I’m glad to have met so many of you imaginative people who have picked Cardboard*Con as one of your creative outlets. I look forward to seeing you folks on Saturday night!!
Zowie, I’ve had a busy weekend of posting to this blog!! This is to let everyone know that last week I quietly rolled a brand new version of the PiratePalooza website for 2006, check it out (it makes this site look tired). If you still haven’t seen the short “web-commercials” we shot for last year’s PiratePalooza pubcrawl then stop what you’re doing now and click here to see the darned videos!!!. I have about six solid ideas for PP commercials for this year and expect that the other merry folks behind PiratePalooza will have just as many. If anyone has an extra 3-chipper laying around gathering dust you know how to get in touch with me~
