I have a new cell phone number
I haven't cancelled my Verizon Wireless account yet, but unless something goes pear shaped with my new AT&T Wireless phone during the 30 day trial period, I will be. I may not be carrying the old phone with me anymore. My new number is in the Gweep Rolodex for those who can access that.

I didn't end up going back out, I got a call just after my last post and haven't been off the phone for very long. Ralph's usually starts chasing people out around 01:30, and they close at 02:00. Since I wouldn't have made it until 1ish, it wasn't worth it. The call had to do with the current Anime Expo bruhaha, and it gave me a bunch to think about. It looks like I might be involved with something new...

The situation with AX is likely to get a lot worse, and probably extremely messy. It may be enough to kill the con in the next couple of years unless something drastic happens to change things. I don't think the folks in charge realize how many people are fed up. It'll be interesting to see how it all plays out in the end.

I forsee the con splitting in a way similar to the Animerica/AX split of '93.
Perhaps every bit as vicious as well.

Ideally, one of the parties should head south into the San Diego area. This
is something the fans have been clamoring for.

Who owns the movie rights?

I've got my popcorn and I'm just gonna sit back and watch the fireworks...so to speak. ;)
