I also want to say that I’ll be posting photos from the con. I’ll try and post credits but if you see someone you know that I didn’t credit, let me know.
I’ll also be dressing up as Cecil Baldwin from welcome to nightvale. I’m terribly excited!
Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.
Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.
Can I just take a moment to say that this makes my day?
I work in Japan as an assistant language teacher, and I’ve posted my better lesson materials here on tumblr from time to time (and elsewhere too). In response to requests, I’m now making them available for other ALTs to use, via this new gumroad store.
You can pay for them or not pay for them! It’s up to you.
Of course, you don’t have to be an English teacher to download any of this stuff! If you’re just curious, help yourself.
I know more than a couple of language teachers in Japan and Korea! Very cool of Patrick to make his education resources available.
Hey Whit, check out this guys’ page. These are the materials he uses to teach English in Japan and they are hilarious and kind of scary.
So, apparently there’s a style now called “norm-core” which is about literally wearing normal clothes. Street cloths. Jeans and a sweater sort of thing.
Fashion has come full circle. I can walk outside without feeling like a doofus. I no longer have to be embarrassed for my parents.
Oh btw I’m going to be at Emerald City ComicCon in March and I am totally looking forward to meeting E.K. Weaver the writer/artist of The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal. You should really check it out soon ‘cause the story is going to end here in a couple months or so and I’ll be totally sad and excited. But I’ll mostly be excited because comics!
Since I’ve been going to the gym now for about two weeks, I think I’m becoming more endeared to dudebros. Not the dudebros who are obviously teenagers and have yet to learn that there are people beyond the standard gender binary but, rather, the dudebros who are truely bros. They are a fascinating group. They gather to lift weights like zebras that gather to drink from a watering hole. The female dudebros among them are often left alone to lift their weights like the other males and cooperation with activities like dead lifting can be seen at work. This particular trait is not often seen outside of the gym but it reminds one, in a way, of when children learn to share toys. It is a wonderful feeling to cooperate and promotes focus and good will among dudebros.
The beta-male dudebros usually hang around the drinking fountains and weight benches. They also sometimes make sounds like they’re trying to have sex with a pig and it is hilarious. They also have no idea that this kind of intense hobbying makes them geeks. Although I don’t think that’s a problem anymore.
Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You is a project where pictures are drawn based on girls’ superhero costumes.

D! Hey D! Look at these tiny little superheroes. They’ve even got Tiny Princess Thor. So cute!
