Happy birthday to eilonwy and rm!

Hello to new readers chaos_israel and midnightgrrl!

State of the 'Song
Bitchslap of exhaustion last night. At least I slept soundly. It's supposed to be chilly and rainy all week, so we'll see how that fucks with my pain levels.

StrowlerCon Needs
* More security staff/volunteers.
* We need people with some* tech-clue to help with build on Friday (come early, see some behind-the-scenes)! ("Some" in this case means "can plug in your iPod and/or operate a wrench".)
* We need a camera operator or two, and maybe some stage crew.
* A loaner keyboard for Heather Dale: "weighted-key 61-or 88-key stage piano/keyboard".
* More contact-juggling spheres.
* Someone to pick up the burlesque workshop (Rogue is doing two shows now and thus can't do the workshop).
* People to pick people up at the airport.

For security staff & airport pickups, please only respond if you are a person known to me. Like, in person. 10q!

No Time for Link Soup
Late start due to power outage, plus I was out most of the weekend and thus don't have a lot built up!

Daily Science
Physicists may have observed Hawking radiation for the first time.

Plans
Work. Hopefully today will be the day I get my act together to go through the closet, because I suspect I'll need room for sweaters soon. My brain is tired enough that I'll leave the writing for tomorrow. Date with Mark tonight. <3

FYI, we are no longer looking for a keyboard for Heather Dale, we found one!

sindrian will help, and I've edited that need into the post - how many people do you require?

EDIT: Also potentially swashbucklr, who should be contacting you directly.

Hm, if I could have four pairs of hands (counting the two you've just mentioned), I'd be thrilled. It's not a big build, it just needs to happen fast.

If any of these folks are interested in helping as run crew, they should contact me - that's a lower-priority need, at this point, but one or two more hands would be fantastic. We need a camera operator or two, and maybe some stage crew.

swashbucklr's running Security, but I'll see if sindrian is game!

My son started picking up contact juggling at Pennsic this year. We were advised to buy a bag of lacrosse balls at any athletic store. They are about the right size and weight (significantly heavier than tennis balls)for beginners and not terribly expensive.

I second this suggestion: I actually started learning with a cricket ball.

I can pick folks up at the airport, and also, that reminds me, I should buy my weekend pass already!
4th-Oct-2010 03:36 pm (UTC)
You should! :) I'll send you the airport pickup/dropoff list. Thanks!

Pass bought and email answered and plugged into my calendar :)

Heather Dale is performing? AWESOME! >.> I've avoided the con site cause know I cannot go, so I'd not seen it.

She's very nice. ^_^

What dark_blade said. Ms. Dale is a wonderful performer.

What time is 'early' in the come early tech-request? I've yet to see a "doors open" time for Friday. I'll be arriving at Boston Logan about noon, and plan to take a taxi to the hotel. If that is early enough, I'd love to help set up Friday!

We get the room at 10am. We start soundchecks at 3 (so sound needs to be built, and the big sound-effecting things (like putting up drape) need to be done before then). Doors-open is scheduled for 6pm; I'll be so proud of us if we actually pull that off. Please do come by and help! Email me (this username @isomerica.net) so that you're on my list. :)

'Song, can you ask sindrian and swashbucklr to email me too?
4th-Oct-2010 10:37 pm (UTC)
Apparently I can't type tonight - sound-effecting things and sound-affecting things are different! I meant the latter.

Thank you, dear. It was, alas, an awful, awful, lousy day, but that says the rest of the year can only be up!
