I felt fine the whole con, then caught con crud late on Sunday. Now my throat is sore, ugh.

Just like last year, there were various spates of making people lose The Game. Every time I heard someone yell "I just lost the game" or "You just lost the game", all I could think to myself was:

"Thank god I'm only watching the game. Controlling it."




Also, shockwave77598 and I are interested in bringing puppetry to FF next year. That, and the announcement of next year's theme as the '70s, makes me think it would be fun to reenact this ad with puppets:



BTW, advertising works! That Jeep commercial inspired me to spend money.

...on an mp3 of the song at Amazon.com.

I think either a puppetry track or at least a basics of panel would be neat. There's also the talent show they've decided to put on regardless of people who sign up. that'd be a good time to do this.

One Night in Bangkok - a line I often think of from the song, slightly revised...

"One town's / very like another / when you're at a furrycon, brother."

How would we have a car set though? The animals are the easy part.

heh. I'd totally forgotten that commercial.

I have a fake steering wheel. That's all we need. The rest is Theatre of the Imagination.

(Actually I think it's a real steering wheel for a tractor or something; I bought it from Archie McPhee years ago.)

The dumbest thing about "You just lost the game" is that it conveniently ignores their own loss of the game. What happened to first person plural?

That's right. The rules of the game state that if you lose the game, you're supposed to announce it; i.e., say "I just lost the game". People who go around saying "You just lost the game" are just idiots who think they're being funny.

You mean there haven't been Pawpet shows lately? Strange, every time I hear "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh" (either version, today both came up on my iPod), I always think it'd make a great pawpet show.

And I've never been to a furry con!

Well, so far there haven't been any puppetry panels or events at TXFF. I'm hoping I can change that.
