Now I've been stuck in Washington DC since 5:30am (that's 2:30am to my system right now).
Either way it's too early...
After the show John and I took a nap at the hotel. We went back out to the Hyatt--the place to be--just long enough for John to ditch me for a party that I would have thought I would have been invited to.
I officially hate this.
Today I'm not even sure what sort of programming I'll go to. I'm sure there's something that I'll want to go to. Saturday's are always so crowded though.
Horrible storytelling. Horrible story.
A curious amount of foul language throughout for a cartoon that appeals to kids. Very violent as well. Gross violent.
I find no merit in this stuff.
If this is in anyway faithful to the character, story, and/or tone of the comic then this is some of the worst, most stupid crap I've ever seen. I'm embarassed to have seen it.
I fear theory and discussion of the mechanics of comics relies too much on McCloudian ideas... Maybe not.
This guy is overcompensating for the dullness of the previous speaker by speaking awkwardly emphatic--a sort of strange evangelical/professoral tone.
I'm sitting in on this panel because I want to see Neil Cohn (who is next, and is a much better speaker).
But now I've got tos et through this poor example of public speaking.
Next year I'm gonna make Fish come out here and present his thesis...
SCAD needs to be much more involved with this conference, but we didn't get any proposals in on time...
Saw Rashad and Tabitha when I got here. Sanford Greene was on my flight this morning--he's got a nice new artbook this year.
Just keeping my eye out...
My plane leaves at 5:30am, so I should be there by 4:30, so I should leave home by 3:45, so I should wake up at 2:45. That's 6 hours from now.
We'll see how it goes...
