#JoCo and Paul & Storm 2016 at NYCC

I just got tickets to go see Jonathan Coulton and Paul & Storm at the Bell House on October 7th! I haven’t seen them since 2010, back at PAX Prime in Seattle, when I went with my West Coast buds.

I remember getting up at 4 AM to drive up to Seattle in the dark. The first 100 people who arrived at PAX got free tickets to see JoCo and Paul/Storm, and we were dedicated to getting those tickets. We decided we were going to cosplay as gangsta versions of Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Peach.

This was me at 17, sitting in on one of the panels at PAX.

#JoCo and Paul & Storm 2016 at NYCC

I’m Speaking at New York Comic-Con October 8th!

So, through a series of convoluted circumstances involving Bob Iger, a Darth Maul cosplay gone bad, and an out-of-control ice cream dispenser, I’m going to be representing Outer Places on the October 8th “Science of Star Wars” panel at the NYC 2016 Comic-Con.

This is the third year in a row that I’ve gotten into the NYCC for free due to unforeseen circumstances, and it just goes to show that if you live in New York and make a lot of offerings to the right entities, all your wildest dreams can come true.
