Balticon New Media Party

The 2010 New Media Party at Balticon begins on Saturday (5/29) at 11 pm in the Derby. It will include a costume contest with prizes for the best four costumes, Tee Morris as DJ, Podcasting’s Rich Sigfrit as the Master of Ceremonies, and include live acoustic music by Phil Rossi (and possibly a special guest).

Chooch and I do not receive funds to throw this party, and pay for it out of our own pockets. We have purchased the prizes and decorations and are over budget in the hopes of making this party better than last year. We are still providing light refreshments, but are hoping for contributions.

Many thanks to M.A. in Pa for the material and baked goods donated, and to Paulette Jaxton for the offer of funds.

We are greatly saddened to ask for contributions, but even after canceling our costumes and funneling that money to the party we are still short. Which is why we’ve reluctantly created a Chip In account and are asking for donations via PayPal.

It bears noting that the alcohol at last year’s New Media Party was generously provided by Evo Terra and This year, we will not be providing alcohol but will not prevent you from bringing your own.

If you would prefer to give cash when at Balticon, that is greatly appreciated as well.

Episode 29 – Feedbacks

We decided to make this one a feedback episode since we haven’t addressed any in… um… well, I’d rather not say how long 🙂 As a special bonus, our son LT pipes in here and there!

This episode we mention:

Halloween 2007

We built this Gir costume (a character from the Invader Zim cartoon) over the past few days for our tween to wear on Halloween. We found some plans to make it by KRYPTONIGHTENGALE on the forums.

It was a big hit in the neighborhood and T was very proud to wear it. Unfortunately its hard to see the ears in these pictures, and I forgot to get one of the tail.
