Someone wanted a con report, this is what they get.  
And by someone I mean [livejournal.com profile] amothea and [livejournal.com profile] silver_bond. Who shouted as much at me as I was exiting the hotel room. So... self-indulgent con report. Of sorts.

Panels:
I should tell you that I don't really go to panels at Escapade. In fact the first time I went to Escapade I walked away kind of h8ing it, b'c I went to as many panels as I could. The second year (last year) was mixed. It was a busy year. I had just moved out of my Family's house the DAY before the con, [livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa and I almost broke up during the course of the con, I met [livejournal.com profile] gelasius and walked out of the con gayer than when i went in. However! I only went to 4 panels and had the Best Time Ever in them. I suppose it helped that i co-modded 2 of them... This year I think I went to even less and modded none. Or attended more than 4 but but didn't stay for the duration. I am not meant for deep bickering meta. I am confused by mass dissent for a piece of media. I am utterly baffled why the bitter stay with the media that is making them well... so fucking *bitter*. But people just roll that way at Escapade. So I avoid the panels designed for them, not wanting to ruin their good (?) time or mine. I've found this to be a most effective course of action. ::nods::

Vid show:
It was good, but pathetically small - only 17 vids. And I say pathetic b'c of how the organizers presented it. They claim it was a "bad year for vidders". See this? This is my WTF face. B'c srsly. What the fuck kind of bullshit IS THAT?!! I mean BASCon had such a packed vid queue the organizers made an OVER FLOW vid show. So I call bullshit. If a not as well known con can get a vid show three times the size of a well known con? Somebody isn't doing something right.

ETA: According to knowledgeable commenters in this post it was the preferred batch of vidders who had a hard year and weren't as prolific as expected. I wish that was comforting. I have a hard time drumming up empathy for faceless masses. And after attending a paltry three Escapades vid shows the impression I've always gotten was that there's a little too much resting on ones laurels and complacency for my taste.

Logistics:
I LOVE the new hotel. Granted I didn't interact with the staff at all since I was on somebody else's ticket, but oh god. I love the decor of the rooms, I slept through people talking in the morning (i.e. I slept good) and if you go out the back of the lobby, turn right and walk about 200 feet? YOU ARE IN THE SAND. Some people complained about the beds being too hard and the lack of hot tub, but clearly I was not the former and the latter is inconsequential to me.

The Best:
This was the best Escapade ever. Yes even better than last year with the gay and the girlfriend. Because that actually had nothing to do with Escapade except that that's where [livejournal.com profile] gelasius and I met. So I didn't go to many panels. I sat in on the Sunday Torchwood panel, b'c [livejournal.com profile] mistressace said "Come with us" and... well she's Ace. They were attempting to map out Jack's time line. I was on my laptop hacking my windows mobile phone (rather repairing it from the hack I had performed Friday night) listening quietly and being amused by [livejournal.com profile] minotaur shhing me with his hand when I mentioned my adoration for Gwen/Jack. I don't know why anyone would want to map out Jack's timeline, but the room seemed to be enjoying itself so I sat quietly. I went to other panels, but I don't really remember them. My favorite panel was [livejournal.com profile] sherrold's panel. I could tell you what it was about (genderfuck/bodyswap) but I don't really care. Because I got my Escapade back that is mine.

This was the best Escapade ever because [livejournal.com profile] sherrold was back! SHE WAS RETURNED TO ME SAFE AND AS DIRRTY AS EVER THANK YOU DEITIES!!

I didn't quite know this (figured it out this weekend obviously), but [livejournal.com profile] sherrold is a HUGE part of my Escapade experience. She wasn't there last year. There was this cancer thing? That tried to kill her. AND UTTERLY FAILED. At the vid show last year they called her and put her on speaker phone and I remember getting all choked up and teary. I didn't remember this until yesterday though. Did I mention [livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa and I almost broke up? Oh and I went a little gay? Yeah... so I wasn't really cataloging the absence of McPosse's first adopted childe [livejournal.com profile] sherrold. Or as we like to call her: Deb. B'c when she gets her groove on? She Debauches the Young. So... Deb. Get it? GET IT?!

I got my Escapade back and it's shiny.

GUESS WHO'S GOING TO ESCAPADE??!  
I got sponsored at the last minute! [livejournal.com profile] delibby is just that awesome! I'll be showing up Saturday morning-ish. You will see me at the Veritas: The Quest pimping panel. Or as I like to call it: Jailbait and his Daddy King Soloman and Papa The Mummy.

So text me or better yet send me an e-mail: username [at] gmail [dot] com. I'm such an uber geek these days. l have all my e-mail accounts hooked into my work phone that I kind of maybe really love more than my personal phone.

If I have not met you and you want to say hi don't be shy! Just come say hi! *I* can do all the talking for us!

Best. Escapade. EVAR.  
I mean I know it was only my second Escapade but still! I loved every panel I went to. All two of them. Oh and the two panels I co-modded were MADE OF AWESOME!!! ::is a l33t r0ck st4r:: Yeah 3 days and 4 panels. Gave me more time to hang out with some of my favorite people. Escapade is our Mardi-Gras weekend. Fandom and Debauchery. ::happysigh::

I have many things to discuss inside and outside of fandom. I learned so much this weekend about the "kind of person" I am and the "sort of person" I want to be. I'm in a new place of freedom that isn't scary so much as it is... I'm... gah not reinventing but like... I put the pieces of me that didn't fit with the Family into boxes and purposely mislabeled them. I've started going through the boxes and... It's not that "I'm not myself" so much that "myself" can change from minute to minute depending on which box I've just opened. Things that I've said Very FIRMLY just in the last month ARE TOTAL AND UTTER LIES.

I'm a dirty dirty liar!

Tomorrow I'll be posting more about that and how AWESOME Escapade was.

BASCON! With SNAKES!!!  
the Mcposse: [livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa, [livejournal.com profile] permetaform and myself are staying with [livejournal.com profile] poisontaster for [livejournal.com profile] bascon this year. And while I'm excited about a few slashy things: Nikki/Cole, SPN, Prison Break, Smallville (shut up! there's still slash on my show!), Hiro pole dancing... ::shifty eyes:: But one things has got me very excited to be in a hotel full of a hundred+ fangirls:

SNAKES ON A PLAAAAAAAANE!!!!

I wanna have a Snakes on a Plane viewing party in our room at some point during the con. I'm thinking Friday after the Meet and Greet? Save us the trouble of liquoring ourselves up?

We've got [livejournal.com profile] coniraya on board too! And I want a nice *healthy* group of at least 12 rowdy people. And I mean *rowdy*! You have to be able to keep up with me. Lately people have been shhing me at the movies. Shhing! And Snakes was supposed to be different! But some asshole brought his uptight girlfriend and they were lame and sat in the handicapped seats below the railing of the first row upper level WHERE I WAS SITTING AND HAD ARRIVED A WHOLE 30 MINUTES EARLY TO SIT!!! And the uptight bitch turned around about 2/3rds of the way through and told me, "It's not funny anymore." And I said almost verbatim, "I'm sorry ::giggles::... sort of. No. ::giggle fit:: Not really sorry at all. AXE OMG I *LOVE* AXES!!!"

Something like that.

So I want to squee with fen and just barely not get security called on us. Barely.

Anybody interested?

pre Con report Report. Something.  
I haven't done anything today but lie on my couch and watch tv. But, I am still tired. Escapade was my first vacation/road trip and it was *work*. Thank god [livejournal.com profile] permetaform and I can babble on for 4 hours straight driving up Hwy 101. Because dude? Even if there had been a $tarbucks I wouldn't have given them my money. But that's another post.

Also? It's official. [livejournal.com profile] permetaform, [livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa and I are a posse. We committed crime or Performance Fan Art. Depending on your POV.

And as a crime posse? We adopted [livejournal.com profile] sherrold. But only when she's inebriated. When she's inebriated she is debauchery personified. We went to [livejournal.com profile] smutcutter's room party after Friday's meet and greet. [livejournal.com profile] sherrold, [livejournal.com profile] frahulettaes, and other people I don't know the name of. God it was so much fun. When we left I turned to lier and permeta and said, "Dude, she called me young and nubile and I felt all perved on. [livejournal.com profile] sherrold is debauchery personified... *dreamy eyes*"

lier/permeta: Oh hey! We adopted her!
fashes: *flits in* Oh we did? Coooool. I... I feel like... I feel like I met Debauchery. She IS Debauchery! *pause* Let's call her Deb!
lier: OMG She IS! *literally fallz over laughing*
permeta: *almost fallz over laughing*
