Can't believe you've never been then!

next year is a "maybe" for me. Was supposed to take this year off .. . but ended up going after plans fell thru.

so if things jell with what I hope to be doing around this time, I might skip next year.

but if not? will have to hang out.

the Queerios have a great party (used to be the Gay-Laxians, if I'm not mistaken).. and the Spectrum Party is always a lot of fun. The guy dressed as Supergirl is in line for getting into that party.

I can't believe I never went either. In my defense, when I last actually lived in Atlanta, I was a raging alcoholic party boy. I wouldn't have been aware it was going on really. :lmao: I lived in Savannah, GA for 13 years before moving to Orlando (been clean and sober for 12 years now.)

Although I'm sure I would have had a great time back then, I'm glad that when I do go, I will remember everything and I won't wake up in a strangers bed not knowing how I got there (I'll introduce myself and remember who they are now :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: )

have you really never learned the shower trick? (perfected back in my younger, un-married, days):


"sure! feel free to go take a shower! (so I can look in your wallet and see what your name was)"


:p

Almost like you'd expect people to be walking around handing out hits of LSD just like before an old Grateful Dead or Pink Floyd show in the 70's or 80's. :lol:


It's a party con, but like Bert said there isn't any obvious drug use. I haven't seen anyone doing drugs, I haven't seen anyone that I thought was high and I haven't smelled weed. The raves are rather tame and nowhere near the stereotypical ecstasy filled raves. Drinking is the vice of choice and even that doesn't really get out of hand. People get really drunk, but I haven't seen any fights or anyone vomit. People are pretty respectful and follow the rules despite the craziness.

I will contribute some pictures if I can find the time.


Good to know...sounds like a lot of fun!

Jynx242 - I can confirm that if you or anyone else runs into Bert, he's a genuinely nice guy who happens to be hilarious and is a blast to be around!

Bert - this TR is a hit! Glad you were able to get down there for the Con, even if it was kinda last minute. Did everything end up going smoothly with your flight going down?

d'awwww. . thanks for that Liz :oops: :oops:

No issue with the flight, other than a very full plane. Even tho Houston took a lot of damage from Harvey (and the Austin airport was slammed from Houston folks being sent this way (and to San Antonio) since the Houston airports were closed for a couple of weeks), Austin never had any damage other than slight wind.

so plane was on time, and ended up having no issues getting to Atlanta.

Cruxshadows made a rare non-Atlanta USA appearance in Austin last Friday -- as usually they only tour overeseas (but came in special for the anniversary of our local goth/darkwave dance club, Elysium).

so got to see them twice in one year, and the only time ever while not at Dragon*con.

still a great show (set was the same they played at Dragon*con). . so odd to see them without a sea of lightsabers bobbing in the crowd in front of them :)
