Wondering if you should ever go to a con after the DashCon kerfuffle? Did you know that there are literally hundreds of cons worldwide about media things that Tumblr is into? This is a totally non-comprehensive list of conventions you might want to check out, limited to English-speaking countries…
I may be a bit biased, but hell yes I agree with the first slash con listing. :)
#scarletmanuka, did you see this? Check out the list in the link!
Yes, I did indeed see it, and even posted it to the Get/Together comm. :-)
the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.

If anyone could claim to be a genre-crossing Godfather of Godzone screen and song it’s Don McGlashan: from Blam Blam Blam (‘There is No Depression in New Zealand’), to musical theatre group The Front Lawn (classic comedic short films Walkshort, the Lounge Bar, Linda’s Body) and beloved band The Mutton Birds (‘Nature’, ‘Dominion Road’, ‘Anchor Me’), as well as scores for numerous TV shows and feature films (No. 2, An Angel at My Table). He turns full fathom 55 this July. Sail to the middle of Don’s deep blue sea with this McGlashan onscreen spotlight. (13 titles.)
I will particularly suggest looking at the vid for The Heater because I have long been in love with the combo of the guitar riff and horns in this song.
Turnerstokens reminded me that I’d meant to do this anyway, so have a nice long links post.
Saturdays at 7 pm Greenwich Mean Time, there’s chat about The Sentinel.
These are two comms that provide info and links about what’s happening in the fandom. HermitSoul does the newsletter and she searches everywhere.
More links are under the cut
Hi. :-) I have heard of RevelCon, but I’m unlikely to ever attend it because I live about as far away from Texas as you can get. I’m a New Zealander, and while I have managed a trip to the USA, and hope to do so again, it’s a bit of an undertaking. I did manage to attend Con.txt on my visit to the US, and there’s a little NZ slash con called Get/Together that I go to for a fangirl fix, if not a Sentinel one. Nice to meet another sentinel fan though, especially on Tumblr. Do you ‘do’ LJ at all? That’s where a good bit of the fandom still plays. Swellison, who I believe is also a RevelCon attender, comes to a chat room that some TS fans have set up. From recollection, I can’t stick links in Asks, so I will post a couple of relevant links soon. Apologies if you know all this - when people are in different forums it’s tricky to know who knows what. :-)
here’s a couple of things I recolored to match with my tumblr theme.

I have been having an argument with a friend and he says that Marvel is for guys, please help me prove to him that there are lots of women who like Marvel!
