Connecticon 2009

Thursday July 30, 2009

This weekend, July 31 through August 2, 2009, Connecticon will be taking place at the Hartford Convention Center in Hartford, CT.

Much of the Front Row Crew will be in attendance, and we will be completely dominating Panel 5. That panel room will consist of nothing other than panels either run, or presented, by The Front Row Crew and/or GeekNights. The actual schedule is available in the con guide which is available online as a pdf.

Luke Crane and Jared Sorensen will both be in attendance at this convention. They will be running events in Panel 5 as well as various games and demos at their discretion.

Our good friends from CandyCorn Studios will have a table in the dealer's room where you will be able to purchase awesome t-shirts, dice jewelry, and other possible secret goodies.

Don't miss it.

Otakon '09 is Over

Monday July 20, 2009

Otakon '09 is sadly over, and we all must return to our mundane lives. Well, all except for Rym and some other people who had extra vacation days and went to the beach all week. That means there will be no new GeekNights episodes this week.

However, as is customary when Rym is out of town, I (Scott) plan to do some live video via Ustream when I get home from work most days this week. I will most likely use that live stream time to do some Scott's Box and discuss comic books, but also to demonstrate my incredibly mediocre robot model-building skills.

When the show is live, the link will be posted here as well as on Twitter @apreche and @geeknights. Also, I'm sure if you follow @schezar you may get a few tidbits of news from the beach.

EDIT: Here is the URL for my live streaming show this week. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/scott-scott-robot
