My Weekend At Anthrocon

I'll try to keep this short; but not likely.

Thursday: Left 30th Street Station in Philadelphia by train at 12:42 PM. Like I said before; WAY better than driving. And cheaper, too! Never have I had such a relaxing ride across PA. At 8:00 PM the train arrived in Pittsburgh in the middle of the pouring rain! I managed to brave the elements during that one block walk to the Westin.

Friday: Had breakfast at Steel City Diner. First time there by the way. Saw the opening ceremonies. Bought stuff in the Dealer Room. Performed stand-up at Open mic featuring Jibba. I've always wanted to do stand-up and Anthrocon! Let's see...Anthropoly, Uncle Kage's Story Hour...Yeah, that was my Friday.

Saturday: I was playing with my digital camera and shot this shaky video-






*makes sure you didn't throw up* You okay?... Alright. Anyway, I bought more stuff in the Dealer Room. Saw the Fursuit parade. Saw Bucktown Tiger in concert. He rocked! Then I was interviewed by a couple of guys doing a documentary on different conventions. Then there was the Masquerade, 2's Rant, and the Comedy Improv.

Sunday: More stuff purchased in the Dealer Room. Saw "Memories with the Mouse" with Floyd Norman. Saw the last of the Fursuit Games. Then after the closing ceremonies I shot this other shaky video-






Monday: Took the 7:20 AM train back to Philly. At 3:20 PM took the train from 30th Street Station back to New Jersey.

In conclusion: Anthrocon was great. I can tell everyone else who went had fun. Hope to do it again next year.

Thanks for the video diary! For someone who didn't go, it was great to experience some of the sights and sounds.

I also liked your epilogue in the second video. :)

Thanks! I was hoping to get some feedback on that. I like to inspire people with my thoughts on furry fandom. You know, put us in a more positive light.
