Re: The "Check this item out on eBay" Thread

I have no idea where it's coming from - tapes or t-shirts. Are folks actually completing a sale at these prices? It's one thing to drop an ad for $700 of tapes or a thousand dollar t-shirt and just have that ad languish as we all have a laugh at it. But is someone actually buying these things at th...

Con t-shirt archive? (Also, when did con t-shirts become a thing?)

A lot of cons do/did a new shirt every year, but pictures of old con shirts only seem to show up online when someone loses a bunch of weight or gains a bunch of weight and tries to sell their old shirt on EBay. :lol: Is there anywhere trying to archive/categorize old con shirts (front/back/tag photo...

Old-school cosplay you wish you had a photo of?

Was watching the first Urusei Yatsura movie and suddenly realized how great it would be if someone cosplayed as the fat-bird mailman on the little bicycle. :D

Are there any old-school cosplays you wish you had a photo of?

Re: C/FO's 45th anniversary?

It kind of says something about the C/FO's legacy to consider that when that first wave of uncut, subtitled anime hit American video stores in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the C/FO had almost nothing to do with it. None of the companies that localized anime - CPM/USMC, AnimEigo, the Right Stuf.,...

Re: C/FO's 45th anniversary?

the C/FO is certainly part of the anime fandom scene of the time, but it wasn't the only club. There are plenty of anime fans still alive from the late 1970s and the 1980s who accomplished interesting and influential things in the fandom and who were never part of the C/FO. Might just be me, but as...

Re: The 1976 New York Star Trek Convention aka DisasterCon

It surprised me though that that late into the 70s and Trekkies were still being seen as weirdos, even to other SF fans. Guess that TNG and the movies was when the mythologicalizing of TOS became a thing. If I had to guess, I would guess that the lack of home video is what made it weird, because th...
