    The answer is to make sure it is not self-induced. I’m sure you won’t have any problems finding someone to help you out with that.

    I’ve never had a self-induced orgasm powerful enough for that. Living alone with a 7 year old has distinct advantages…..and even more distinct disadvantages!

    I swear! You just have a friend ssend pcitures to your email or phone and get a few details right when you rave about it when she returns from the honeymoon. If there’s alcohol at the wedding (and who wants to go if there’s not!), then you can even reminise about the conversation you had and about how you almost caught the bouquet.

    One friend for 20 years vs. >20 friends for one year. I’m pretty sure there’s more than 20 of us you’d meet at Junkie*Con. Clearly the years are in our advantage.

    I think the rest of the Junkies will all join me in wishing that this engagement goes down in flames. :P

    But it’s going to be more of a money issue than a timing issue. If I have to pay for a dress and all the other hullabaloo that goes along with it, plus bridals showers and bachelorette parties, etc., I’m gonna be flat broke! Things being as they are, I’m already having trouble saving for JunkieCon – now, that money is going to have to go towards this wedding!

    Avatar of BigJohn

    is that you’ll be able to wear your bridesmaid dress to something other than just the one wedding!

    she didn’t exactly give me an ultimatum…. but we’ve been friends for 20 years, we’re part of each other’s families, so she basically gave me the “what’s more important?” guilt trip. All I can do is hope that a JunkieCon/BaltiCon piggy-back doesn’t work for the FDO and it gets scheduled for another date. *crosses fingers*

    Conventions are multi-day events that cover entire genres or industries. We might have one full day of activities before we ran out of things to do. What if Junkie Con covered Scott’s genre of fiction (Hard Science Fiction + Horror)?

    Here are some ideas for a Science Fiction-Horror Junkie Con:

    Author panels

    Comic book author panels

    Scientist panels

    Filmmaker panels

    Fan film contest

    Fan fiction contest

    Fan art contest

    Sci-Fi Horror game tournament (not sure what game, but I’m partial to All Flesh Must Be Eaten)

    Stage reenactments of book scenes

    Costume contest

    Junkie of the year awards

    Sci-Fi Horror film festival (Junkies vote to choose movies)

    Like an actual tourney that takes a couple days.

    Rough draft:
    Work the games into the day’s events if we get a conference room in a hotel. If there are enough people, we try to get a two TVs and two Xboxes (I’d bring my 360.) Much like the world cup, we make brackets and decide times for the games.

    Depending on the amount of people, we break it down into amount of days for the Con:
    (if needed: qualifying one day), one day for quarter finals, one day for semis, and then the final day will be for the Junkie Bowl Championship.

    Or, everyone just gets together at some time to play in a hotel room, winners are kept track of, and only the finals are played in front of an audience (which just seems lame as hell). :-p

    Just kickin’ out ideas.

    That the secret is so fucking cool that I plan on entering this tournament, and I neither own an xbox, nor have ever even touched one. I may end up crashing my brother’s place to see if he has a copy of Madden and if he’ll let me play a little. I have no doubt I will be severely pwned in the tourney, but the chance at the prize makes it worth the embarassment of failure.

    And if that isn’t enough incentive for you to want to play in the tournament, you should check yourself into a hospital.

    I just let John in on the secret, so if everything falls into place (enough people want to give it a whirl, we can get an Xbox or two along for the trip, and the timing of it all pegged down so I can finance this while still having a job (as lord knows what’s going on here week to week) the winner of the tourney would be very, very happy.

    if I say “it’s cold and damp outside” and you punch me because you think that I said “your mother’s a whore”, then you would be hard pressed to find a court in all the land who will be on your side for serving up that looping right hook.

    While I agree with you that language is a two way street in that calling someone the most horrendous thing possible can bring a laugh from one person or could shatter someone else, there is a general acceptance that “the cat is sleeping” really just means the feline is taking a nap and there’s no other way to take it.

    I believe I have a sewing machine…somewhere in this house. I think I bought it about 10 years ago and then promptly put it in the basement without opening itTongue out If my life depended it on, I *might* be able to sew….but let’s just say I’m not willing to make any bets on my rudimentary sewing skillz.

    So unless I buy a professional uniform, which seems like a fair bit of coin to drop for a lark, then your suggestion of short shorts is looking like a better option. Or maybe just GirlCo tshirts and I’ll bring the pom poms!

    …….but I suspect that it will be sometime in the first quarter of the calendar year.

    Now, if we do go with Vegas, wearing short shorts may still be an option depending upon the month. I’m not super well versed on the climate there, but some cities in the SW let you get away with shorts year round.

    We discuss the hell out of it when FDO is down under, and now that he’s back, it drops off the radar. Oh, well, consider the thread bumped!

    I had a thought, too. When I went on a volleyball ambassador’s tour to Europe, we played against local teams in other countries. Part of the “ambassadorship” was to give gifts to the other country’s team that was something small and innocuous that represented us, and where we were from. For example, some girls from chicago gave out chicago sports team memorabilia; I gave out local postcards and keychains.

    At any rate, I was thinking maybe we could have people (whoever wanted to participate) bring little trinkets and put together a “gift bag” of sorts for the registered attendees. Nothing big or fancy; could be small little things like peeps or bookmarks or something like that.

    Anyway, thought it might be a neat idea.

    The only reason I said anything about me not flying is it will make no difference to me if its in Vegas or Florida because the Airfare will not be an issue. I have never been to Vegas and don’t foresee ever going there because… Well the easy way to put is I would become Nick Cage in ‘Leaving Las Vegas’ times 10. It sounds stupid I know, but the place scares the hell out of me.

    Absolutely Sadock. Im just one junkie and I dont expect anything to be done just for me when it comes to these kind of things. I would love to be involved in something like this but I have my own limitations to deal with and sometimes that means I cant be there personally. This also helps prove that Im socially retarded when I post things because I dont think of how they may sound to other people.

And its not like this is happening next month or anything so who knows what details will change. I will keep my eyes open for any other location that might be viable though.

    Avatar of Kate Cheevers

    And Vegas really is not even close to anything I would consider “central” however I can’t think of any place that ever comes up cheaper or with more flight options than Vegas every time I’ve looked into traveling anywhere… It’s the place I get the most emails about regarding flight deals and is the front runner (at some pretty amazing prices) on every travel site I’ve ever used. If there were a more centralized location but it was more expensive, it might physically be more doable but financially would pose a problem.

    As Sadock said though, do you have anywhere specific in mind? There is a casino/resort at Turning Stone! And of course the fact that its around an hour from my house has no bearing whatsoever on my making that remark…. Laughing (besides, how cool would it be to go to Vegas – I’ve never been and probably would never go otherwise!)

    ___________________________

    Proud member of the Gutter Sistren

    Avatar of Arioch Morningstar

    That is the primary reason it is has become the front runner. Regardless of where you live, travel is fairly cheap because the casinos subsidize flights to get people to come lose money gambling. I suppose Atlantic City might do something similar, but I doubt it’s anything like the scale on which Vegas does it.

    Did you have a particular place in mind? I have no problem with a more central locale, but I can’t think of anywhere that would be less expensive for everyone nationwide.

    of being bested by my favorite citrus fruit twice recently. I mentioned it on Twitter and Facebook, but never brought it up here. Gmork is tempting the wrath of all the souls trapped in the siglerverse twinkie by crossing these streams and bringing it up here.

    There really is no good outcome of such a deathmatch. Although it would be mildly amusing to try to have me peel an orange during our drinking match.

    It should also be mentioned that I have won two times since, so we’re currently tied at 2-2.

    And that’s really the last time we should speak of it.

    I took a moment to go back through the now 8 pages of this thread to summarize the outstanding ideas you junkies came up with (yes…even the crazy ones). Apologies for the length of the post but hopefully this will help with planning or least not require going through the entire thread again. Also, please keep sumbitting ideas as nothing is absolutely set in stone yet!

    Timing:
    • 2011 late fall or early spring (based on A’s preliminary expectations of the FDO’s commitments)

    Location:
    • Las Vegas, Nevada USA (tentatively) – Most agreed upon location was Vegas but here are the other suggestions made:
    San Antonio, Texas
    Detroit, Michigan
    San Francisco, California
    Denver, Colorado

    Misc Logistics:
    • For those who can’t attend – send a cardboard cutout of themselves or a video message
    • Have a dedicated T-shirt (possibly printed upside-down for Jam to read whilst drunk)
    • Broadcast parts of the Con/Fest via webcam

    Viable Ideas:
    • Flag Football game
    - Krakens v. ??? (possibly getting jerseys for an opposing team made for the event)
    - Krakens Cheer Squad

    • Junkie Olympics
    - Do a challenge from “Minute to Win It” then you have to answer a trivia question from Sigler’s works
    - Last person standing is the winner

    • Junkie Poetry/Limerick readings
    • Scavenger/Poker hunt
    • Costume/Cosplay Contest (FDO and A as judges?)
    • Sigler Trivia — this could be really awesome and hilarious
    • Event where the junkies can share their works
    - Fan Art Display/Show of some of the Fan Art and cover art, etc
    - Fan Fiction

    • Toothpicked Peeps Death Match Tournament w/ winner championship belt (made by athanas)
    • Live-action Junkie production/ dramatization of one of Sigler’s the short stories
    • MobiusJava podcasting session (would require MobiusJava aka Paul E Cooley)
    • Pastry Princess cooking demonstration (would require SlackerQueen aka Pastry Princess)
    • See the Blue Man Group together (would require admission)
    - get Sigler plastered enough to paint his bald head blue, he’d fit right in! (Jam)

    • BigJohn/Sadock head shaving
    - Donation to Locks of Love for any long haired junkies willing to participate

    • Xbox Madden Tournament — for the psycho footballers

    • Writing workshop

    • Storm a sporting event in Krakens gear, regardless of sport
    - would require a sporting event every can agree on and price of admission

    Alcohol intensive ideas:
    • Athanas v. BigJohn Century Club Live: The Rematch
    - agreed upon potty breaks
    - a pass if someone plays the “you don’t have to drink” card for that minute.
    - The person loses if they cannot finish their shot in the minute time slot and it’s not an agreed potty break or the “you don’t have to drink” card is not in play.
    Variation: “Live” Get Pissed with the FDO with Big John & athanas?

    - Possible: “buy in” to make them do things, like a double-shot minute or free shot (no shot that time), etc
    - Possible: have them read Junkie Haiku/Limericks between shots
    - With funds raised being donated to charity

    • Beer Olympics
    - Bowling, darts, pool, and foosball
    - Must drink a pitcher of beer (or 3 shots or mixed drinks) during each event

    • Drinking with the FDO (live “Getting Pissed with the FDO” segment, if he’s willing, the Gutter Sistren could be team Shot Sluts!)

    • Drinking games
    - Listen to an episode of Nocturnal and everyone takes a drink when Mr. Biznass says “F*ck”

    FDO intensive ideas:
    • Random Q&A with the almighty FDO
    • FDO reading and signing – set time
    • Podcasting 101 – for the novice to intermediate podcaster
    • Podcast Novelling – How it works and relates to both writers and consumers
    • State of the Publishing Industry and the new Dark Overlord Media model

    Fun but less viable ideas:
    • Girl piling
    • BigJohn/orange deathmatch tournament
    • “Grooms Walk planning” panel
    • “How to stuff your favorite Nocturnal” panel
    • “How to develope DISCIPLINE in the young” panel
    • “The Top 10 reasons a Rocktopi would make a great bean bag chair” panel
    BYOW (via exotikali)
    • Sigler dunk tank filled with beer (really Jam?!)

    The places you have to “run” to and acquire the cards for your hand? Logistics might be difficult for an on foot run. Easy peasy if we wind up being on the strip though. Guess we can wing it.

    I croped them all the same then ran them through and selected custom and entered 85 and it worked. I was selecting the 85 earlier but the original pictures going in where of different sizes. I croped them to squares of the same size and then entered them. So amazingly enough size does matter! Thank you Sadock you are a Rock Star!!

    You look fine. I can’t comment on how photogenic you are since I’ve never met you IRL. I’ve noticed that pictures can make folks look better or worse. I reserve final judgment until I actually meet someone. I only use pictures to get a general idea. One thing I like about your pictures is they strike me as candid and honest. People often use wacky angles and such in an attempt to deceive with the camera.

    ……other than square images. The aspect ratio may be what’s screwing things up. I’m fairly sure that .gif images need to be identical in size. You can do this by either using pics that are identical natively (eg the size they come out of your camera) or by re-sizing. I re-size everything to a square since the image space on SS.com is so small to begin with. If you don’t use a square, part of the 85×85 we get to use will wind up being blank white space.

    Try re-sizing your images so the pixel count is equal for height and width. I suggest using 85×85 so you’ll know what the final image is going to look like before Picassion creates the .gif. Be careful not to lose your original image (ie use Save as and make a new name for the 85×85 one) if you have to modify pics. That *should* fix the problem. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    There is a show on NBC called Minute to Win It, and it features contestants who compete trying to achieve goals in a one-minute time frame. As they go on, they get progressively harder, but all the games are described on their website at http://www.nbc.com/minute-to-win-it/ and you only need relatively inexpensive household items to participate. The show is really a kick, and the games look like a lot of fun – AND – they would of course be more difficult as the pitchers get emptied.

    If you get the chance to check the show out, you can see how we could easily make something like this happen.

    I say we do the Olympics and let people drink if they want. If there’s a prize, make it a booby prize versus something people want to seriously compete for. Again, primary objective is fun for all. I really don’t want to exclude anyone. There’s a good chance we may have some alcoholics or people who can’t drink for medical reasons. Or who simply don’t. Not trying to rain on your parade, but inclusion needs to be part of Siglerism if we are going to conquer the world.

    Although forum participation and Junkie population don’t necessarily go hand in hand. My best guess is that only about 20-30 people regularly participate on the forums. We both know that Scott has way more Junkies than that. I’m always stunned when I go to do the Podiobooks.com stats each month.

    I think the proposed location, Vegas, has its airport (McCarran?) just about 15-20 mins from the area we’re thinking of congregating at. As was mentioned previously, most major cities have good flights to Vegas, so if you’re to hop across the pond to JFK (New York), Atlanta, or any of the major metros, I’m sure you can get one more hopper (albeit a 5-hour hopper) to Vegas.

    As many Gutter Brethren and Sistren as we have on the boards it simply wouldn’t be right to have a scavenger hunt w/o them. Definitely make it gender neutral so the ladies can get a guys speedo briefs if they prefer. Then use however many the teams acquire later on as booby prizes for some sort of Gutter event. Filthy pun contest anyone?

    UV is right…BigJohn got a thwacking with a newspaper. If I’m gonna thwack sadock it will just involve a large rolled up newspaper for a larger thwacking!

    Avatar of Gmork

    it was indeed Bob who suggested it. I just regurgitated it cause it reminded me of a scavenger hunt I went on for a friend’s bachelor party. We drove all around town trying to get everything from a picture with a popular sculptor in town, to getting the panties off of a stripper. And alas, although we got the panties we lost to the townies who knew where all the local items were *sigh*

    Anyway, I love the idea because it will mean some junkie bonding time with good old fashion debauchery.

    I’d like for this to be as much fun (if not more) for them as it will be for us. Now, as wacky as our FDO is, he kind of loves doing some stuff that I consider work. We have no idea if Scott even considers signing books ‘work.’ If he does, I suggest we block out a particular time during the event for that and ask true Junkies not to bother him for signatures at other times.

    Here’s what I’m thinking:

    • Hold off on suggesting anything else directly involving A or Scott.
      • A has already said she will coordinate with the FDO after he returns from down under and THE STARTER chaos settles down some
      • They will give us a few options of dates that work for them
      • They can probably give us an idea of what level of participation they’d like to have as well.
    • Feel free to continue with suggestions that don’t involve them (eg Gmork’s scavenger hunt [W00T!])
    • From what I’ve been seeing, it’s looking like Spring 2011 sometime in Vegas is going to be the likely time and place. I don’t think we can do much more with that until A gets involved.

    1) Absolutely. And now I have a burning desire for a commemorative JunkieCon badge (damn it!)

    2) As a block would be fun (and cheap) but like any other con, I wouldnt make that a requirement.

    3) A formal dinner would great but nothing that would exclude anyone. Also sometimes a restuarant doesn’t work well for something like this…maybe a ballroom with a buffet so its easier to mingle?

    4)Although I have all the books, I’m sure if you brought swag I didnt have, I will be dropping money for it, so YES, bring swag! And books!

    Avatar of Eric Parker

    1) wouldn’t mind paying for a ticket
    2) block of rooms, I’m on the east coast so if I were to attempt to go to this it would NEED to be done on the cheap.
    3) I think it would be awesome to have a formal dinner but I’d have to know how this might affect the cost of the trip.
    4) the more swag the better!

    Avatar of Gmork

    Yup my suggestions below were meant to encourage fun not create work for the FDO. Even the writing worskhop I suggested was more along the lines of sharing what works for you as a writer not getting Siggy to do a presentation.

    I thought maybe a few events where the non drinking junikes could have fun…or even the YA junkies, seeing as how the FDO’s written audience is going that directions (with both The Rookie and The Starter being aimed at the Younglings). Wil Wheaton (of Star Trek fame) has been known to host RockBand sessions where he plays an insturment while fans rotate in on the other intruments. That beats the hell out of a panel any day.

    Avatar of Arioch Morningstar
    1. Definitely
    2. As a block. If someone wants to wank out and get their room on their own, that’s their prerogative. From what I’ve seen, that doesn’t seem to be the case. The more relevant question in my mind is what kind of hotel we want to shoot for. Personally, I’d rather stay off the strip. It’s a hell of a lot of extra money (I think) for very little extra gain. In my mind, this event will be mostly about people. Sure, we may take advantage of some of Vegas’ offerings, but I don’t see a need to be frivolous with $$$ if we don’t need to be. Pretty much ALL of the hotels in Vegas have gambling. And I’m betting a some of us will be driving (I almost certainly will) or renting cars and willing to carpool/shuttle people if we want to go to a special event.
    3. I’d need more details on this one. The ‘formal’ aspect kind of throws me. I would like to keep the whole con/fest low key if possible. Good company, laid back, good conversation, getting to know one another, lots of laughing, etc.
    4. I’m guessing most folks will have all of the books, but I see no harm in selling more there. I’d be VERY interested in creating unique Junkie Con swag if we are going to have enough people to make it worthwhile. Maybe something simple like a tee shirt and make that part of the ticket cost? Or not. Just throwing out an idea.

    As far as timing goes, isn’t there a couple three day weekends in early Spring? Like MLK day and President’s day? Paul Cooley gave us the impression we should just pick a day and run with it. Glad to hear we’ll be able to get date options in 2011 from you instead. Having DØM prime there will make things that much more of a blast!

    I’m leaning away from the State of the Industry thing as a formal thing. Scott will likely rant about it informally, but I’d like for him to be attending this as a fanboy with little to no obligation if at all possible. I think all of the ‘work’ should be on us rather than him for this event.

    Just got home and boy did I have a lot of emails!! I agree with Bella and Athanas about a Junkie*Fest, more than a Con. I agree with John and everyone who mentioned making it about us doing things for Scott, not the other way around.

    And in response to your questions, A:

    1) No Problem

    2) Block of Rooms

    3) Dinner sounds good

    4) Oh Yeah!

    And that’s all the cents I have for now (I know, it was more than two…) Maybe I’ll get some sort of inspiration later!

    If we plan on things for a full day before hand and then drinking and whatnot into the wee hours with the next morning being for hung over sleeping… That would be prime.

    If possible, I would like to keep it Junkie*Con though. I haven’t been to a Con for over a couple of decades… I think the last one was a Dr. Who convention in the 80’s. And I feel really sad and pathetic about that. Since Balti* and Dragon* are out for me, this could be like finally being at a convention, just a better convention, a junkie convention… But that’s just me. If the prevailing winds go Fest, then Fest it shall be.

    A weekend of FDO greatness and Junkie fun!!! EXACTLY!!!!!!!!! Wink

    It’s understandable that Scott & A won’t be able to stay for the entire “fest”, but I agree with Jam that it needs to be a longer visit than just a tour stop or a book signing. Which is why we will need to plan this with them. But even if they’re only available for a day, we can do other Junkie activities the next day or the day before, however it ends up working out. The whole idea behind this was for the Junkies to meet and get to know each other better IN PERSON.

    True dat… A few of us heard the word Con and just started goin’ nutzosweatyballsfromhell. It’s a party… That’s the main point of the whole excercise.

    Here’s a personal thought, and those that travelled can either agree with me or be wrong…

    Scott is worth the trip to visit. He really is all that. Each of the trips I’ve had to meet him were awesome. The readings were cool, the visits to the bar afterwards were beyond frickin’ cool. If there was one thing wrong with it, it would be that I felt like we didn’t have enough time with him. Like I mentioned in another post, he was on a timetable, he had a mission, and at the end of the night, he was off, shooting into the sky, his cape billowing out behind him like a spectre of doom. And after spending the better part of a day to fly in, and knowing that you were going to have to fly back out, well… You see where I’m coming from. All those who lived by a stop, or drove an hour or so, didn’t really get the same experience as a whole.

    I’m cool with not making it like a real *con, with serious topics and such, but I want to make sure that if we get together, it’s more than just an ultra cool dinner and drinks with the FDO (as frickin’ wankerific as that is). If a few junkies can organzie some fun games/activities, that’s cool. Kind of whatever. I just want to make sure that we do everything we can to ensure that all attendees attain that level of self actualization most conducive to the absorption of smutz the FDO exudes…

    Sorry to ramble… does any of that make sense?

    hhhmmm… SynapticJam on Toast – hhhmmm… tastes like chicken (aka PUVJK) #2 or 3 in crack hits (Special? Ain’t I just) Multiple S.H.I.T. Award Recipient! Double Dipper and Triple Threat! All-around uberjunkie!

    My initial thought, after hearing about how people can’t make the tailgates or book tour stops, is what was keeping us from throwing a gathering where we all get together and worship all things Sigler related?

    And I’m with John in that I don’t want Scott to show up punching a time card; I’d be much for him coming and just hanging out with his fans. Have some events and activities thrown in, sure (STILL want that football game, if only for a chance to convince another set of jerseys to be made for the opposing team as I’m throwing my hat in the ring as Captian of the other team if that happens…cause I want one Tongue out,) but other than that, just get people together to meet face to face.

    Avatar of Belladonna420

    but I thought the initial plan was to do a meet and greet for fans of Scott Sigler, aka Junkies – hence “JunkieCon”. This seems to be turning into an all-out “PodcasterCon”… which is fine if that’s the direction everyone wants to go, but I just think we’re getting away from Athanas’ original idea….

    Believe me, I have no problem being able to meet ALL my favorite podcasters in one place, but I was kinda assuming they were coming as fans of the FDO as well….

    And I agree with BigJohn that this should be something that the FDO does with his fans, not for his fans. I kinda thought *we’d* be the entertainment for a change (The Century Part 2, Last Man/Woman Standing, Haiku & Siglimerick readings, FanFic readings, etc.) as opposed to the FDO entaining us.

    I don’t mean to offend anyone and if I do, I apologize as it was not my intention, but I thought that’s what we were working towards.

    I gotta say that I was leaning towards not having to make the FDO actually work at this event, and that maybe it would be something that he just did with his fans, rather than for his fans. That’s just me, though. I know there are other podcasters who might be in attendance, like yourself and mobiusjava. Maybe you could be coerced into presenting?

    I’m totally on board with what MuchAdo suggested as far as when and where.

    For events we could always do:

    • Costume/Cosplay contest — seeing as Scott’s already had a Nocturnal character show up to a signing event.
    • Xbox Madden Tournament — for the psycho footballers
    • Power Hour/Last Man Standing Contest while reading Junkie Haiku — with BigJohn & athanas (if they’d like)
    • Writing workshop

    Gimme time, I’ll come up with a few more ideas.

    Here’s the deal:

    I spoke with A today. Scott is BOOKED through 2010, so no chance there. 2011 is about the best they can commit to at this time, and really, all we can do is come up with a date and a place. So somehow we need to put down our heroin syringes and actually cogitate WHERE we’re going to meet up and WHEN. Labor Day weekend is totally out due to D*CON (I imagine scott will be there again). Whatever Balticon, ComicCon dates are for 2011, chances are those are out too.

    So what’s that leave us with? Basically late fall or early spring. So I think we’re going to have to put a vote together on this. I’m relatively located in central US (Houston, TX) so I don’t really give a damn which coast it’s on or if it’s up north or south. While Denver would be a great place to have it BECAUSE it’s centrally located to both coasts, it might make more sense for someplace like Vegas since there are almost always flight deals being made. Plus, of course, there will always be something else to do there other than worship our beloved FDØ.

    Also, we need to actually get something together where people can suggest REAL “con” event ideas and then get ‘em ratified or something. Hate to reign in the anarchy, but since I was dumb enough to start this thread, I’ve kind of been asked to get it going. Scott and A LOVE the idea of a junkie-con, but we need to do something to make this real.

    So cut some of the snark, start thinking. Of course, nothing wrong with SNARK and GOOD ideas. :) So there. I”ve thrown down the freakin’ gauntlet. You up for it, bitches?

    Wouldn’t that be kind of an ironic thing considering the whole cloning gig is more of a Hutchinnssssss thing? Or would we have to clone the FDO 7 times for that to be too far?

    A and I did discuss this briefly when I was in San Diego right before my trip here to Australia.

    Sounds fun, sounds like a good time. I want to go for sure! But between THE STARTER and Oz and ANCESTOR stuff, we just don’t have time to sit down and sort out next year’s calendar just yet.

    So, short answer is: this sounds great, can’t commit to a date just yet. Like A said earlier in the thread, please hang tight for a little while longer.

    Longer answer: When I’m back from Oz and we’re done with THE STARTER pre-order launch, and A’s not managing THE STARTER launch and the ANCESTOR Tour details and me half-way around the world in Australia along with her full-time day job (A’s other full-time job– don’t forget she runs her own event managment company) we’ll be better able to focus on a date.

    I had not been to a Tailgate stop yet, so thanks for the insight. I also agree that it would be best to try to keep this “off-calendar” as compared to Scott’s other activities. That being said, we should try to coordinate it with A so as to maximize the chance of his attendance and minimize the impact on his obligations.

    Do we know yet whether the FDO even is interested in attending?

    Sigler has to be there of course…

    Possibility of doing it on a Tailgate stop: I’d like to avoid trying to make this as part of a tailgate stop.
    This is a special function with us Junkies and our FDO. Anyone who has been to a tailgate function knows how much fun they are, and don’t get me wrong, they’re a rockin’ good time. But there are invariably downsides:

    • The FDO is usually on somewhat of a strict time table – affects both arrival time and bed time
    • He uses the time to pimp for the novel, and rightfully so, as that’s why he’s there
    • Unless it’s a special stop, he’ll avoid getting totally f’d up.

    This leads us to pushing to make it a separate event with the appropriate pomp, circumstance, and all that shizat. We also stand a better chance of getting him for at least a full overnight to par-tay. Not only that, but his attention wouldn’t be diverted to any other reason than being there with his junkies.

    Thoughts?

    I’ve shaved it in the past. I guess the question now is whether we would shave it before going, or while we’re there? Anyone else?

    I might also suggest for the long-haired women, maybe they might consider cutting their hair and donate it to Locks of Love. My wife does so every couple of years (I hate it – dig chicks with long hair…yum…) Um, anyway, 10-inch minimum donation, goes to a good cause.

    - LOTS of hotels near one another
    - solid package deals for said hotel w/ flights
    - gambling
    - the whole prostitution thing
    - did I mention you can drink on the streets?
    - the town NEVER stops. EVER!
    - hit any buffet and you can get breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the same damn time
    - alcohol

    While I am a long way away in Australia.. I would fully support a Junkie con celebrating all things to do with the FDO.

    I can always record a video message for the JunkieCon

    Avatar of Arioch Morningstar

    It’s more reliable than tweeting. I suggest whoever is organizing pick several dates and submit them to her. It sounds like Vegas is the best compromise for location from what I’m seeing. Another option might be to try and do it on one of Scott’s tours. I doubt that would work if you’d want him to stay for multiple days though. Do we have a volunteer to organize this thing yet? I don’t think Paul is actually going to do it.

    Do we have an idea of how long our trip would be? I think Vegas has cheaper rates during the week (that is, not on the weekend). But are we talking something like a 3 or 4-day weekend, or something midweek? Is it too early to figure that kind of thing out?

    But I think Vegas will be easier/cheaper to get to. Travelocity has a round-trip non-stop from Atlanta to Vegas for under $300 (depending on days you fly, etc.) I could do that.

    But if we pick the date soon enough, I can just start saving my pennies (and nickels, etc.)

    Sort of a Nocturnal scavenger hunt with built-in pub crawl. That would rock beyond and slightly to the left of rock.

    But I also agree that it would be more difficult, and less central, to our east-coast junkies. The nice thing about Denver is that it’s a connecting point for a lot of cross-country traffic; most people (i would think) could get a direct flight to and from denver from most of their regional airports. That’s just a guess.

    The same may be true of Vegas, but I don’t know.

    Big problem with San Fran is that it’s on the West Coast. It would make logistics a royal pain for those on the East Coast. I’d say hold off and see what A says regarding the FDO’s schedule. Which means pick the date first.

    I don’t know about you, but there was a span from about the mid 50’s to the mid 60’s where I took the whole minute to nurse a shot. What I was getting at is that a person could get a pass if someone plays the “you don’t have to drink” card for that minute.

    About “not being able to finish the shot”, I meant that if the person, sans cards in play, cannot finish their shot in the minute time slot while it’s not under an agreed upon potty break.

    Also, maybe take on of the short stories and get some Junkies to do a live dramatization? Extra points for playing the character named for you.

    I’d love to see some timing around either April 1 (Ascension day), the launch date of one of the GFL books, or even a football weekend where we can all root for the G.D. Detriot Lions right alongside the FDO.

    Love to see something with Fan Fic and Fan Art also. AND t-SHIRT!!!! Must have a totally awesome f’ing t-shirt for everyone.

    And, if it grows into a success, everyone had fun, and we start planning for another one, THEN start coming up with the major schedule ideas and the like.

    Make it be a party; I’m afraid if we ask someone to organize an entire con with events and all that, that person might not enjoy themselves as much.

    How about this for an idea? Pandemic and the All-Pro are supposed to come out next year; if the All-Pro comes out around the same time as The Starter, then maybe a September launch party would be in order.

    go until the other waves the flag or can’t drink the shot in the minute time frame.

    Or, we could come up with a series of ways the crowd could “buy in” to make us do things, like a double-shot minute or free shot (no shot that time) or something along that.

    And if actual funds become involved, I would be very, very, very much for giving whatever’s raised to a charity of some sort, you know, to not feel so bad about my raging alcoholism.

    Plus, I’m sure that would do wonders to inflate the FDO’s ego, which we could then deflate by Chiefing him if he passes out first with his shoes on.

    Michigan? In the summer time? Manitou Island? Or Denver, or Vegas, wherever. Just as long as they have an airport close by. Time? Depends on kid friendliness and other holidays…

    How big are we thinking here? If we’re thinking “THAT BIG” then it can be a con for podcast novelists and podcast novel listeners with a focus on Grandpa Sigs.

    Panels on everything from using social media to push your content for the authors out there…
    And panels on things such as, How to optimize your podcast listening pleasure. Or iTunes vs. the Zune marketplace.

    This is wide open people. Or we could just make it a party about Sigler. Which I’m cool with too. But is the Podcast Novel genre really that big and large? How big and large is it? I’ll check back

    But Vegas is always awesome because…well, it’s Vegas. Plus, timing isn’t really an issue as the weather in the desert is normally fairly grand at all times.

    Ideas:
    Toothpicked Peeps Death Match Tournament
    Athanas v. Big John Century Club Live: The Rematch (or just get a big group together and go until there’s 1 person standing)
    Krakens v. ??? Flag Football game (look into possibly getting jerseys for an opposing team made for the event, if possible)
    Random Q&A with the almighty FDO
    More Booze
    Depending on when, if it’s in Denver, there’s a chance we could storm a sporting event in Krakens gear, regardless of sport

    Personally, I would prefer Vegas, but Denver would be good, too. I’m up for anywhere; I think it’d be cool to just get together.

    There would have to be a party element; We need to have an in-person Bar Fight. Panels and events? Holy cow, that sounds like a good idea! Maybe we should orchestrate a live-action production of one of the short stories? I dunno. I’m not so good at the ideas.

    As far as timing goes, I think Summer or Fall would be nice. Are there any cons in Vegas that the FDO might attend?

    Due to tons of traffic on Twitter regarding a possible “Junkie Con,” and the fact someone (ah-hem @sadock) seems to think I’m in charge or organizing said event, I think we should spend a little time talking about this.

    First off, location? Somewhere central to both coasts would be nice, but I keep hearing “Las Vegas” as a potential site, although Denver is probably more centrally located.

    Secondly, besides insane amounts of alcohol, Siglerism prayer meetings and general supplication to the Future Dark Overlord, what kinds of panels/events would there be? What would you like to do at Junkie-Con? Start brainstorming people. Otherwise, it will just turn into a massive party (not that I’m against that).

    Thirdly, what should be the timing? Balticon is end of May, Dragon*Con is Labor Day Weekend. So what is a good time of year to have it?

    All right, peeps. Start thinking. Start posting.
