FAU 3

Late post on the subject but last weekend I headed out to NJ for FA United. It's their third year but honestly, I considered this a reset for the con - a year in hiatus and a large change in staff, I kept my expectations in check. But really it was not bad, some fantastic bands, a much higher headcount than I thought I'd see with a couple other cons taking place the same weekend and during same month + it being a holiday weekend (just goes to show, and I still maintain, that the East Coast - needs more cons!). I mean holy shit - more than 500 people attended? The hotel was pretty decent, I thought, except for the fucking insane prices on Pizza Hut pizza. Was a great amount of fun seeing how many families came to that hotel to use the water slide and left with pics upon pics of their kids with fursuiters :P

But all that being said, I really did not feel like I did much during the convention. Wandered a bit, saw some folks, played in a sealed deck tournament, helped rapidtrabbit with his puppet show... that about sums up my con experience. But the convention was ridiculously easy to get to (greyhound literally dropped me off like a block away - if I had walked to the right Marriott it would have been soooo quick... but that's another story) and so close by - less than two hours by bus with traffic. So as laid back cons go, if I can attend again next year I will.

Oh, I should mention some really depressing news. So Rabbit Valley was at the con so of course asked about next issue of Circles... and apparently there is nothing to say about next issue because there likely is no more next issue :( And on top of that, don't go waiting for next issue of Coyote River either. Ugh, now that's fucking disappointing.

Anywho... grabbed some pics, I'll post some video when I get the chance.

After the con, tigerman and I headed over to tonyringtail's place to chillax. Got some nifty bbq'ing - thanks again to you Watcher and Tony for the food and drink. Monday several of us went to see Prince of Persia... that experience is best left unsaid, except of course for - DON'T SEE IT! Movie sucked, I probably would have followed it a bit more enthusiastically if I'd played the games but if you really need to play the games to follow it then it failed. Boring fucking movie.

Arrived home late Monday evening.
