Genericon 2013: Half the Cost, All the Value

I’m a guest! I’m a guest!
Genericon made the request
It’s been two years since I’ve been here
among the geeky obsessed
With all new topics, with no amount of  ease
Yes, indeed, I aim to please
While the PowerPoint is still glowing
Let me entertain you, I’ll keep going
panel by panel, one by one
‘Til you shout, “Enough! I’m done!”
Then we’ll lecture you off to sleep as you digest
At Genericon you’ll have fun without a doubt
But for now, let’s geek out
I’m a guest!
I’m a guest!
I’m a guest!
At Genericon 2013 I’m a guest!

Well actually I’m a featured panelist at Genericon 2013 but that does not translate into song anywhere nearly as melodically.

But if you are in the area of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY this weekend I am running three panels. It is a fun little general geek convention that is run by our friend from Ani-Gamers, Evan Minto. I have been recruited to provide my special grand of Otaku knoweldge to the convention. Sadly Narutaki cannot attend the convention so all my panels are 100% unfiltered Hisui. That means Yoshiyuki Tomino madness, Hayate the Combat Butler tomfoolery, and of course a Type-Moon panel.

If you want to see what Reverse Thieves would be without Narautaki to balance me out come see me at Genericon 2013!
