So I got some fan mail (sarcasm) from @Botcon in my inbox! Check it out:

Pete, Thanks for writing! I’m confused at what facts are in question. (In my best impersonation of the narrator from Pushing Daisies) The facts were these… I have been attending fan conventions across the United States since 1991. I’ve visited events like yours of almost every shape and size from...

Oh @BotCon. You never fail to amuse. (#BotFAIL Phones It In Another Year.) 0

Oh @BotCon. You never fail to amuse. (#BotFAIL Phones It In Another Year.)

So last week I posted about how BotCon 2011 was destined to be well attended based on location and timing and NOT the work of the convention promotions company.  Here’s the post: http://www.tomcroom.com/?p=8485 I don’t plan on digging through the sea of past posts, but I know that during the Great...

So BotCon’s Twitter replied to me today to inform me about how they are working on the “amazing Botcon 2012” event. Check it out: http://twitter.com/#!/BotCon/status/141892993228611584 Instead of a long series of tweets, I’ll remind the folks at BotCon what I pointed out back in 2010 with this short blog post: 1....

So @BotCon aka “#BotFAIL” showed up on my radar again today. How long have they been doing cons? 1

Everyone makes mistakes. Wasabi Anime (Green Mustard Entertainment) has been designing and hosting conventions and events since 2001.  In that time we’ve had our fair share of “oops” moments.  You’d think, though, that the “professionals” would be a little more polished than us at this point.  You see, when you...

My Boring Ass Life Last Year: 2010 In Review

Ate a giant burger at The Vortex in Atlanta, Georgia.  This was the beginning of my Man v. Food pilgrimage that would take me to eight different restaurants! Saw snow again for the first time in years. Blogged about bad service and got the attention of Ford Motor Company. Showed...

My #DragonCon 2010 Report, Part 1 of 3: The Good

Believe it or not, I normally don’t plan to go to Dragon*Con each year.  When I do go, I’m usually only there for a day or two at the most.  This year, though, I did the “full” Dragon*Con weekend experience by showing up on on the first day of the...

Thought for the night regarding the #BotCon staff & fans returning to my blog… 11

Thought for the night regarding the #BotCon staff & fans returning to my blog…

You know, if BotCon truly is such a GREAT convention AND you think that the review from Joey Snackpants and I penned was wrong because we “didn’t spend enough time” there – wouldn’t it make sense to want us to come back and experience it again to see if we...

The Silence Before The Storm (@Dragon_Con, @AWAcon & @FLSuperCon)

The beginning of August was pretty damn busy.  Wasabi Anime made an amazing appearance at Gen Con in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The rest of the month, though, has been (happily) convention free. Sometimes staying at home CAN be a vacation. Next month seems to be stacking up fairly fast.  My weekends...

Your Favorite Video Game SUCKS! (according to some guy on YouTube)

So remember the video we took of Joey Snackpants meeting Peter Cullen – the voice of Optimus Prime?  (If not, click here.) WELL, it seems someone is pissed at us for… well, I can’t be sure.  I want to assume this is another “bot-tard” (a nickname someone fed me in...

FINALLY! The kids from [insert webcomic here] have finally gone home; now for #GenCon 5

FINALLY! The kids from [insert webcomic here] have finally gone home; now for #GenCon

I have been insanely occupied with about a thousand and one things in the past week. My wife celebrated her birthday this past weekend and, if my sister-in-law can get me the photos, I will do a write up regarding the masterpiece of planning I pulled off with that. Things...

Are we still taking about #Botcon, BotFAIL and Beast Wars? You betcha! 27

Are we still taking about #Botcon, BotFAIL and Beast Wars? You betcha!

Seriously. I really thought this would be over by now. I should be posting more stories from my weekend in Colorado… but I guess not. LOL I am reposting part of my reply I made to someone in one of my other posts as part of this update to address...

Okay #BotCon & Beast Wars fans… here’s your chance. 52

Okay #BotCon & Beast Wars fans… here’s your chance.

UPDATE: Would you like to see fanboys arguing the stuff in this thread, including WHY BEAST WARS SUCKS, live and in person?  CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS! So – the argument seems to have shifted from “Tom & Joey suck because they hate BotCon” to “Tom & Joey suck because they...

The Ballad of #BotCon continues…

I got back from Colorado late last night, and I’ve been swamped with getting things together for about a dozen projects.  Plus, I have a bunch of great photos to post and (to top it all off) the A/C is broken in the house.  True story.  It died while we...
