What will I be doing at Balticon?

Holy crap, Balticon is next weekend! I say this because not only did I really realize it, I want daecabhir to beat me up next weekend, screaming,“NO SHIT, PUNKIE!!! AAARGHHH!!!” here’s my scheduled panels for this coming Balticon weekend:

Fri 7:00 PM - RAISING FANNISH KIDS
IT APPARENTLY MAKES US TYPE IN ALL CAPS!!! WHY AM I SHOUTING?? I AM NOT SURE, BUT THAT’S HOW IT IS IN THE SCHEDULE!!!

Fri 9:00 PM - Fannish Etiquette vs. Mundane Etiquette
This outta be good. Sadly, we don’t seem to have mundanes on the panel, so I suspect this will be heavily unbalanced a gripe session about “the outside world” or as I have taken to calling them, “grups.” I am moderator here, so I’ll be delivering the smackdown to mah bitches, yo.

Sat 12:00 PM - Beyond ‘Pokemon’ and ‘Dragonball Z’
Another Anime 101-type panel where I think I should take notes. Thankfully I am not moderator this time, and I think I’ll just list to Jagi talk for the whole hour. She knows way more than I do.

Sat 7:00 PM - SCIFI SUPERIORITY COMPLEX -- Elitism in SF/F
I’d explain this, but you wouldn’t understand. Now go and play while the adults talk.

Sun 1:00 PM - ANIME & MANGA: Influence in American SciFi and Fantasy
Jagi is the moderator of this one, and I’ll probably give my usual dumb looks, and say “Totoro” at least once, no matter how related or unrelated it might be.

I might be in more, because cons tend to be that way, with all the last-minute planning stuff. But that’s pretty solid. I am not sure what happened to the Eric Raymond stuff. I think I’ll just snag him in the hallway and discuss some shop unless it seems to be boring him.
