Re: Was Randall Stukey representative to anything?

I don't think Sue Shambaugh was making any sort of profit out of translating anime movies. I can't remember what she was charging, but certainly it wasn't anywhere near what a professional translator would charge.

Re: Data on Convention Sizes

Why did they put DragonCon under the "tabletop" category? I thought they do all sort of sci-fi/fantasy stuffs there? Also, why is NY Comic-Con bigger than San-DIego?

Re: the eternal orbit SSX eternal story

Thank you for the nice read. It would have been nice to have seen what SSX was 'supposed to be', but probably the version in our heads is better than it would have been if it actually had completed.

The original data came from https://www.geeknative.com/66694/conventions/ I don't know what anyone else will think of it, but I thought seeing the relative sizes of, say, GenCon, Dragonc...

Re: Ghibli Fest 2019

Just adding that wife, daughter and I went to see Nausicaa and all enjoyed it. I was grateful that the daughter was willing to put up with and enjoyed the subtitles, and I kind of appreciate that even now, at it's thirty fifth anniversary, I can still get emotional about it.

Wife, daughter and I all enjoyed it (wife and I saw it when it first came out). We are all looking forward to Nausicaa in a few weeks.
