Friday Convention Update

Do any of your remember the telephone game? You know, you tell someone something and then they're supposed to pass it on and then by the time it gets back to you the message is so altered that the original message no longer had any of its original context?

Well, luckily, that's not happening this time around. Unlike last year when it seemed that people weren't "Tweeting" as much from the convention, people are tweeting updates and news from the convention. I'm able to get real-time updates from folks while my other sources will be posting (hopefully, if they're not all passed out from convention exhaustion) on The XOC.

The only earth shattering news that came out of today's events (rather the news of the weekend) was that Creation will continue the convention (at least for another year, after 2013, who knows). The convention will be held Jan. 11-13 at the Burbank Marriott.

Rather than me just retype or try to construct some sort of report out of 122 characters or less updates, I'll just copy and paste from my updates on the XOC. I apologize for the funky coloring.

* Classic response from Ted about the "Joxer the Mighty Song" -- Audience: Sing. Ted: F/U/C/K OFF! ~ ~ ~ Ted said it sucked playing Old Joxer because of the make -up (Tweet from Alice Clarke!) ~~ Ted's surprise was the rapping T-Money...
