For Friday night's vid show, we'll offer two programs at the door: one that simply lists the vids that make up the show, and another that lists the vids and also includes warnings for the triggers listed below. (Note that the triggers listed here do not necessarily appear in the vid show! These are things we will warn for IF they appear -- but they might not.)

Items we will warn for include blood, torture, self harm, suicide, violent religious imagery, abusive relationships, sexualized violence, consent issues, incest, implied underage sexual content, parental homophobia, transphobia, institutionalization, Holocaust imagery, misogynist lyrics, strobing or flashing lights, and sudden volume changes.

We would like to get an idea of how many of each program that we should print, so please fill out our vid warnings preference poll. The poll will only be available until Monday at midnight, so take it right away!

We still have tables open in the Fan Fair, our bazaar for fannish swag! They are available on a first-come, first-served basis until the room hits capacity.

The Fan Fair runs 2-5PM on Saturday. We're only running one panel track and a DIY track opposite the Fan Fair, so you can run a vendor table without missing out on too much programming. (And if you want to go to a panel opposite the fair, you can sign up to share a table with someone who can cover for you.)

If you make fanart of all kinds, jewelry, fiber crafts, wearable items, zines, or other items with geek appeal, we’d love to have you. We’re also interested in new books and comics, vintage zines, action figures, and other kinds of memorabilia.

You don't need to be registered for the con to come sell your wares. A full table costs $20 for con members (including day members) and $30 for nonmembers; half-tables are $10 for con members and $20 for nonmembers.

To sign up, go here and fill in the form. You can also check out the list of currently registered vendors. If you have questions or concerns, please get in touch with us at artsy@con-txt.com!

Room Parties!

[personal profile] reginagiraffe posting in [community profile] con_txt
Want to pimp out your new fandom by plopping folks on the couch to watch a few episodes? Maybe you want to pre-game for Disco Duck or the Vid Show, or keep the party going after con space closes? Have a room party!

(Our new hotel has kitchenettes in every room and allows you to hook a laptop up to the TV using an HDMI cable!)

Once again we'll have a paper message wall in the con space where you can announce your room party (don't forget to include the day, time, and your room number). But this year we're also giving you a way to announce and organize ahead of time: this post! If you're considering or planning to host a room party, here's the place to announce and discuss it.

We want you to have a fantastic time at room parties! Please keep in mind, though, that room parties are not officially part of CON.TXT, and the concom doesn't assume any responsibility for them (and all hotel rules and policies still apply). And please remember to be courteous to your fellow con-goers and considerate of other hotel guests.

Have an (unofficial) good time!

It's ten days until CON.TXT starts! Can't wait to see you there!

DIY Panels at CON.TXT

[personal profile] reginagiraffe posting in [community profile] con_txt
Did you miss the deadline for proposing a CON.TXT panel? Or did your panel idea not make the final cut? Have you fallen in love with a new fandom recently (Ghostbusters, helloooo)? Well, you're in luck! We've always saved a few panel slots for Do It Yourself panels suggested at the con, but because of our larger hotel space this year we're able to offer a total of 14 DIY panel slots! There will be 8 slots available on Friday and 6 slots available on Saturday. (And if all of those fill up, you're welcome to meet in the Upsuite or Downsuite!)

To sign up to run a DIY panel, just write your badge name and panel title on the sign-up sheet on the Message Wall in the Downsuite. Since DIY signups are first come, first served, we have a plan to give latecomers a chance to claim one: all Friday slots and the first three Saturday slots will be available to claim when the Downsuite opens on Friday morning, but the three remaining Saturday slots will only be available to claim on Saturday morning when the Downsuite opens.

So start thinking about what panels you wish were on the schedule this year, grab a co-mod or two, and be prepared to sign up for a DIY slot at the con! (And seriously, please do a Ghostbusters panel!!!)

Are you excited for CON.TXT?!

If I'm gonna keep my current steel-framed sturdy commuter bike I'm gonna need better muscles for taking it up and down stairs and things, let me tell you what though. Does that count?

Anyway. Does anyone know of a comm with an ethos similar to this one and to [community profile] disobey_gravity for bicycling?

If not, were I to start one, how many people here would be interested?

Panel Hashtags for CON.TXT

reginagiraffe: purple duck (con.txt icon)
[personal profile] reginagiraffe posting in [community profile] con_txt
The only thing better than a good panel discussion at CON.TXT is keeping a good panel
discussion going after the con! To make that easier, we're putting panel hashtags in this year's program. Each panel has its own dedicated #contxt2016 hashtag. You can use them for livetweeting during panels, and to continue discussion afterward. (And you can start using them now to talk about panels you're excited to attend!)

Here is the full list of panel hashtags. (If you're planning to do a DIY panel at the con, add your panel's hashtag in the comments and we'll add it to the list.)

Panels and Hashtags under the cut )

Workout pain and recovery

Jul. 12th, 2016 03:17 pm
snippy: Lego me holding book (Default)
[personal profile] snippy posting in [community profile] lifting_heavy_things
I posted this on my personal DW and [personal profile] azurelunatic suggested I post here.

I have started weightlifting.

Years of medical issues, surgeries, surgical recovery have left my upper body less strong than I want to be. I have a goal: I want to be able to lift a suitcase into the overhead bin when I fly. I put a number on that goal: 50 lbs.

I started on June 31. I am doing deadlifts. That's all. I started with a barbell with no weights on it, but the bar weighs 37 pounds (it's the lightest bar in the gym). THAT IS A LOT. I did 2 sets of 8 repetitions with good form, 3 times a week for the last two weeks. AND I HAVE BEEN IN NEAR-CONSTANT PAIN THE WHOLE TIME. My upper back and chest are aching, stabbing messes. The pain makes me cranky and short-tempered, and interferes with my sleep.

So I read a bunch online and decided to step down the weight. Last workout (Sunday) I used two 8-pound dumbells. That's 16 pounds. That's 21 pounds less than I was lifting the last 10 days. I did 2 sets of 8 reps with good form. I am still in pain, but it isn't keeping me awake. It makes me cranky, but much less so. I'm supposed to work out tonight, but it's been 48 hours and I am still sore.

I'm considering only working out twice a week instead of three times, with more time between workouts to heal. I will probably give up weightlifting if I'm in this much pain all the time. IT IS NOT WORTH IT.

Any suggestions?
