trelkez: (Avengers - RDJ at SDCC)
[personal profile] trelkez posting in [community profile] vividcon
Okay, y'all. I promised on twitter that if no one had hit 6+ correct guesses in a few days, I'd post some hints and let everyone guess a second time. None of you got over six -- most got four right, some got five, one person only got two -- so here we go! Round two.

Rules are the same: if you get six or more correct, you'll get chocolate at the con; first person to correctly guess all ten will get a mug from our CafePress store with the llama logo of their choice.

These were the first round hints.

These are your second round hints:

1. the show that ended 10+ years ago does *not* have a female lead.
2. however, one of the shows that ended in the past three years *does*.
3. the other show that ended in the past three years hasn't been guessed yet by anyone. it's shown at vividcon multiple times in the past three years, mostly in club vivid.
4. of the new shows this year, one is apparently an easy guess as 5/7 of you guessed it correctly.
5. the other one has only been guessed correctly once. merlin is not one of the fandoms on this list, but this show does have a merlin connection.
6. this one is too easy. every one of you who've already guessed got it right. that's your only hint.
7. this one is ALSO pretty easy but one of you got it wrong. here's your hint, unlucky number seven. BIG fandom. big.
8. the third "big, current" fandom had a panel at SDCC this year. I know, that narrows it down not at all. tough.
9. the fourth "big, current" fandom is almost more of a pop culture zeitgeist show than really a fandom fandom. you might not see a ton of fic for it on AO3, but odds are if you open Entertainment Weekly there's a reference to it somewhere.
10. similarly, the last source on the list isn't so much a classic fandom as it is all over the entire universe all the time. the ENTIRE universe. even the radio.

Icon Stickers!

VividCon is rapidly approaching! (Really rapidly! Please request ASAP!)

Post a comment here and I will make you an icon sticker or two for your VividCon badge.

Amazingly, most people don't actually look like their default user-icon. Trufax! But they could. Icons are fun! And they are also useful! It makes me happy to know that you are coming (and want stickers). Also it helps us recognize one another :) Don't be shy! Pretty much every attendee requests some.

I will print up any two icons, but it's a bit more useful if one of them is an icon that is strongly identified with you, like your default or vidding icon. Alternatively, a favorite character, pairing or fandom makes a good conversation starter!

Please don't reply to other comments with icons you want. Thanks. It's easier for me if none of the requests end up in collapsed comment threads.

DW FAQ explains how to add images to a comment, but feel free to be lazy and just point to the icon(s) you used to make your comment(s). It is totally what I would do.

For the third year in a row, I will be hosting games of Fiasco in my hotel room on Thursday and Sunday nights.

What is Fiasco? Well, it's an awesome storytelling game for 3-5 players about awful characters making terrible decisions.

I've been running games for the past two years and they are packed with fun, badwrongness, and more than a few occasions of air-where-is-air-I-cannot-breathe laughter.

It's a crazy fun game and insanely easy to learn. You basically just need to know the following things:

1. Each player determines characters, relationships, and motivations based on some set choices and some random factors at the beginning of the game.
2. In their turn, each player runs a scene with one or more other players. There's no goal, as such, except that as each scene plays, a story will start to form.
3. Halfway through the game, there will be a couple of twists or complications introduced.
4. The last half of the game is used to bring existing plotlines to the most terrible, ridiculous conclusions possible (within the reality of what's been established -- or just outside it).
5. There is a scoring system, but it's only used to determine what kind of ending your character gets and honestly, every kind of ending is interesting.

What you need to bring: your imagination and a willingness to say "yes" and commit to the reality created by your fellow players. I'll bring the rules and the quick rundown.

Here's some video of Fiasco gameplay (featuring Wil Wheaton and Leverage creator John Rogers): Setup, Act 1, Act 2

Since games have a limited number of players, I need to gauge interest prior to the con and get people scheduled into groups. So please, leave a comment and let me know if you're interested and what you'd be available for. I'm looking at the following times:

Thursday @ 7PM (with a break in the middle for reg)
Thursday @ 9PM (possibly a bit later)
Sunday @ 6PM
Sunday @ 8PM

Depending on interest, I might add a post-Premieres game as well. We'll see.

Announcing Premieres Show Pictionary!

This year, in place of Vid Karaoke, we're excited to try a new event in the post-Premieres show timeslot: Premieres Show Pictionary!

Inspired by fannish Pictionary events at other conventions, you can test your artistic skills (hint: you don't really need any), your imagination, and your memory of the Premieres show vids you just saw in a game of drawing, guessing and group hilarity moderated by [personal profile] trelkez and [personal profile] sweetestdrain.

We hope you'll join us! The more the merrier (and the more madcap).

VividCon premiere vids guessing game!

[personal profile] trelkez posting in [community profile] vividcon
I've done this in the past, but it's slightly different this year due to a wider spread of fandoms, so these are the rules:

There are ten fandoms with two premiering vids each. That includes all premiering shows and themed show premieres. If you guess at least six, you'll win chocolate at the con. (Or, if you don't want chocolate, some other small prize to be determined later.)

The first person to successfully guess all ten gets a VividCon mug with their choice of llama design from our CafePress store.

Keep in mind that this is a guessing game, not a "ask all your friends what vids they made" investigative game. These hints should help:

1. Four are huge, current fandoms.
2. Two are shows with just one season out so far.
3. Two are shows that have ended in the past 3 years.
4. One is a show that ended at least ten years ago.
5. At least two are movie fandoms.

Hey everyone! I didn't know if anyone would be interested, but I have some manga up for sale on my journal.

See, I am going to be making a cross-country move sometime in 2015 and I thought it would be prudent to pare down what I have now instead of waiting until the last minute. And let's face it...books are heavy and add to moving costs, so they have to go.

I also have some free fansub cds that I am looking to just give away because...moving and clutter don't mix.

So...come have a look?

There's all kinds of manga from YAOI, Japanese language editions, Clamp, Petshop of Horrors, Fruba...stuff like that!

The volunteer recruitment letter has gone out!

If you have registered for the con and indicated that you'd spend an hour or two helping make it great for everyone, you should have received an email from me describing the help we need and how to sign up for what you'd like to do. Please check your spam filter if you haven't received it, and if it's not there either, write to me, or comment here with an email address, and I'll get the info to you right away.

If you have registered for the con and didn't indicate that you'd help out, but now would like to, it's not too late! VVC needs more help than most small fan-run cons, because of its special tech requirements, and we'd love to have you be part of it. Write to me, or comment here with an email address, and I'll get the info to you right away.

And if you haven't registered for the con, we hope to see you there next year. Perhaps you'll volunteer then?

Remember: Your Disco Llama Needs You!
