Step One: COMICS!
here's the next page of my dream comic:
Step Two: WEEKEND!
This past weekend Josh Kramer, Pat Barrett, Ben Horak and I hopped a bus and headed south to Massachusetts. We were tabling in Boston at MICE with a ton of other CCSers.
It was a really great con! Plenty of traffic, plenty of friends, and plenty of great signage to keep people moving. I got to meet superfan Eric Barry, and saw former CCS summer workshoper Kristin as well as make a lot of new acquaintances! I'm in the new Boston Comics Roundtable Anthology (as ya'll know) but it DEBUTED! Check out da cover! And soon it'll be on sale at their website.
Step Three: SURPRISE!
Internet, I don't know many people in Boston... maybe like two. So I thought it was super crazy when I saw someone I recognized in the crowds, let alone two someones...These two particular someones also knew Josh...Any guesses as to who these two fellas are?
Internet, do you know what my top five favorite bands are of all time?
I'll tell you:
Harry and the Potters
Flight of the Conchords
Paul and Joe DeGeorge make up, Harry and the Potters. They were at the con, they're totally rad guys who let a complete spaz of a Beth take a picture with them, AND they invited all of us to a secret show that, bless my friends hearts, they let me drag them to.
This secret show was for a website called Sleepover Shows where these guys have bands over to their house and they play cool shows.
This week was Harry and the Potters.
They made us pancakes, and a song about pancakes, and we fought a basilisk together to save Ginny Weasley!
and then after the filming was done and the pancakes were eaten, they played a show just for us (about 15 people) of straight up requests. I nerded out a little too much and requested more songs than I should have, but OH WELL. Here's a funny mash up with Felix Felicis and I Get Wet by Andrew WK. It was pretty much the coolest thing ever. The video of them playing won't be posted for several weeks still but I'll keep you updated friends.
Step Four: EXCELLENCE!
The remainder of our time in Boston was really great. Josh's friend's Zack and Molly who let us stay on their floor were really fantastic people and Zack took us to a comic shop and through Harvard campus and we got to see and eat some veggies he grew.
Then we got back on the bus and came back to the Junc
but clearly that's the face of someone who had her weekend rocked...
