    People meeting in the bar on Thursday? You speak madness, Cricket!!

    For those who care, the schedule is up on the dragoncon site. And for you oldsters, Gene Loves Jezebel is playing. We'll give those gothly youngsters a run for their money. (Just pretend it's Bauhaus, ok?)

    Our flight gets in at 10:45 pm on Thursday, so we should be hopefully all checked in (at the Marriott) by at least midnight or so. What time does the Hyatt bar close/ how late will you guys be staying?

    :)

    Ecila, I will be checking in hopefully around mid-afternoon, if you'd like a little company once checked in, call up from the front desk to my room. Shoot an email to me and I'll send you back my details! (are you coming to the MR party?)

    Ah, bubble gum goth. So unlike the kids there today. Half of them can't even idenitfy the song This Corrosion ... (I'm getting my righteous old school Goth indignation all ready to deploy in Atlanta, can you tell?)

    I'll take Bubblegum Goth over songs with such lyrics as "Is Bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S" I always substitute Potatos, "Is Potatos, P-O-T-A-T-O-S" Or Tomatos work too. I can even work in Sardine, LOL. (Though I do like the beat on that banana song).

    Ok, when are J Loves J playing? *Scours Schedule*

    Awwww The Sisters of Mercy..... when music was actually good!


    I thinks we need a serious Goth/Punk thread here since it looks like a few of us were goths it seems.

    But like the ole' saying goes, you can take the girl out of goth but you can't take the goth out of the girl. [face_devil]

    All righty then, a Saturday night at the Black Cat is hereby called for. After D*C. And Renn Faire. When it's cold and scary outside and we need depressing music to soothe our souls.

    Gene Loves Jezebel is opposite the Cruxshadows, if that helps to find them on the schedule. I want to say Sunday night. Old folks go to old folks show, whippersnappers to the whippersnapper show.

    See you guys tomorrow! (and if you're not going, well, we'll think of you and pretend you're there. Hardly anyone will notice us talking to our invisible friends after a while.)

    And I'll pretend like I'm there. The people at Discovery should be used to me talking to all my imaginary freinds by now (this is what happens when you leave people all alone in a pod for 8 hours).

    The Black Cat? Would this be a goth night club by any chance!?! OHHHHHHH!!!!! I'm in for this!!

    We used to have a great goth club in Philly called The Asylum but it got shut down back in '96-'97. It was great because they would get in very cool goth bands like Human Drama, still one of the best shows I ever saw.



    Oh might as well get back on topic here, have a drink, or 10, for me and would it kill someone to bring me back a M2 Parks Saber with a Red blade!?! [face_laugh]

    Clothes? Check!

    Now I just wait for the limo to pick me up.

    Joe did you remember the lucky underwear? ;)

    Wendy, good luck with school. We'll be thinking of you! :)

    See those of you who are going at Dragoncon! :)

    Say what!?! I somehow doubt Joe will be in need of any underwear since he'll probably be wearing kilts the whole time there.
