I make no secret that I have strong opinions about the diverging age gap between the attendees at Anime and newer multigenre Events and the older science fiction cons – but the Daily Dot has a solid article on this very subject.
It’s well worth your time.
So Trae contributed to Famicom Dojo’s 100th episode entitled “Growing Up Gamer,” which premiered this last week. It’s not their normal format, instead meant to mimic “This American Life.” You should listen to it, because it’s awesome. Heck, you should just listen to Famicom Dojo’s podcast in general, because they’re neat people. Just listen already.
We haven’t been addressing the assault of a young cosplayer at San Diego Comic Con, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important. The Golden Lasso has a really good article up on Convention Rape Culture if you want more to read on this subject.
Just a note – this week’s Nerd & Tie podcast is being delayed until Tuesday, as I (Trae) just got back from driving 500 miles, Pher has a conflict, and Nick doesn’t feel like recording the show alone.
In a cupboard.
Where he lives.
Nick’s life is tragedy.
Anyway, we’ll still be recording a show this week – again, just on Tuesday night. If you need anything else, just enjoy this photo of myself and my wife Crysta with the Rhinelander Hodag I took yesterday:
You may now return to your regularly scheduled lives.
