I'm currently sitting at home on my computer. I'm not walking around a huge convention center in San Diego. This makes me so sad. So very sad.
There's light at the end of this dark, sad tunnel though...Boston Comic Con is but two weeks away and that makes me so happy. Why? Because we're tabling there of course. Remember when we did that last year and it was awesome? We're doing it again. I even made a neat little graphic showing where you can find us:
Pretty neat, right??
Anyway. This week's episode was a ton of fun. There was a lot less swearing than last week and Will's pitch was so good he had me hooked not 10 minutes after the episode ended. Proof? Here you go:
If you have no idea what that is and can't read the name on the back of the black card on the left than you should have a listen and get your learn on. It's totes worth it. I also totes hate that I just used the word totes. It'll never happen again.
Enjoy episode 123. It's the classiest stuff we've ever done.

Last year I gave ConnectiCon a solid B- grade. It was a fun convention that focused heavily on cosplay and anime that showed a lot of potential.
This year, ConnectiCon completely blew me out of the water.
It's pretty typical for me to over-exaggerate when it comes to writing these things but I think it's safe to say that ConnectiCon has made improvements to almost every aspect of their show. The most significant, in my opinion, being the vendor room. Last year Alex and I made a pass or two around the vendor room in about an hour or so later and were content with what we saw. This year, however, we were there for two days and I still feel like I didn't catch everything.
FYI: Those were taken after the floor had closed. It was pretty packed on Saturday to the point where a few times it was reminiscent of a much, much larger convention.
Not only was the vendor room busy but the tabletop area, which at some points last year was a baron wasteland, was also buzzing with constant activity. RPGs, board games and homemade creations were all the rage.
Oh, did I mention the guys from Super Art Fight were there? Yeah if you haven't already noticed or listened to episode 102 it's evident that we're pretty big fans. It was our 2nd time seeing them this year and we got to introduce Colin and Jon to the madness that is their live show. A word to the wise: If they're ever in your area...take the time and go see them. It's a shitton of fun.
This is just a sample of what we saw this year at ConnectiCon. I'd keep going but then you wouldn't have any incentive to listen to the episode would you? Exactly.
Anyway, check out this week's episode for our full review of the show and go HERE for our full photo album including some cosplay, some swag, and some insanely dapper pictures of Colin. Like, seriously. I can take a damn good picture of that dude. It's borderline inappropriate.
Huge thanks to Leo and the rest of his crew for giving us this opportunity again and for putting on a fantastic show. We hope to see you all there next year!

Just got home from a crazy day one of ConnectiCon.
I'd write more but really I'd just be repeating everything that's said in the episode. Kyle and Justin are two badass special effect/makeup artists and this week they were kind enough to talk to us about it.
Now if you'll excuse me I need to go sleep for about 26 hours to prepare for day two of ConnectiCon. Expect pictures and recap episode soon!

If you're even slightly into the cosplay scene there's a pretty big chance you've seen this week's guests walking around at a convention or featured on your favorite cosplay website. Josh and Tori, the husband and wife duo from Cool By Proxy Productions, are quickly becoming two of the most recognizable cosplay figures in the northeast. Take a quick glance at their website (previous link) and you'll see what I'm talking about.
I'll wait here while you go check it out.
What's even more awesome is all of that is made in house. By hand.....I'll let that sink in for a second.......
Alright I suppose I can stop being a smart ass.
Seriously, though. Have a listen. Give 'em a Like on Facebook. Keep your eyes peeled. You never know when you might bump into them next! (Actually that's a lie. They tell us exactly where they're going to be soon. But you'll have to listen to the episode for that. See what I did there? Genius.)
