Sing In Praise of spikedpunch!

For he is the winner of the "Thank You Hikaru!" commission! He is a kind wuffie, and deserving of effusive thanks. So sing!

I said SING, dammit!

La, la, la!

That's better. Now you better watch it!

No Duh

A "Duh!" Moment, Starring tchall

the_gneech: There's a nice bit in "Lion King 1 1/2" along those lines. :3 [referring to lions batting at yarn sort of activity]
tchall: Oh yeah? Hee, hee. I'm going to have to get a copy of that.
the_gneech: It's worth watching. :3 It's not great -- but it has some good parts. :3
the_gneech: Better than "Simba's Pride," anyhow!
tchall: *nodnods* Yeah, I haven't heard anyone who liked that one.
the_gneech: Are you familiar w/ "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead?"
tchall: A little bit.
the_gneech: Well, "LK 1 1/2" is basically like that, except with Timon and Pumbaa.
tchall: Ah, ok. Makes sense since Lion King is more or less "Hamlet."
the_gneech: *thought balloon* "DUH! Why didn't I think of that???"

Way to out-literary-reference the English major, tchall! Nice job. :)

    Secret of Monkey Island -- "LeChuck's Theme"

Paneling -- Your Opinion Wanted!

I sent an e-mail off to Sue Deer offering my services as a panelist at AnthroCon this year, and she promptly replied with, "The theme is Summer Games this year, (Olympic and otherwise), I wonder if you might be able to do something with that?"

Uh ... okay ... I have no idea what, but I'm game!

So now, I'm trying to come up with ideas. Given my areas of expertise (webcomics, art, and writing), I'm not entirely sure what I could shoehorn into a Summer Games theme. Vince could easily do his anatomy tutorial as "The Athletic Furry Physique," for instance, but if I retooled my penciling panel, how would that relate to Summer Games? Maybe I could do "The Webcomics Marathon: How to Keep Going?" Something of a specialized subject, I would think.

So anyway, I'm going to toss this out for general discussion. If you are going to AC, what would you like me to do a panel on? And who, if anybody, would you want me to invite along as additional panelists?

I'm open to suggestions! And in fact, I want them, badly!
