got no problem with watching a full season of tv in one sitting but when it comes time to pick a movie im like “am i really ready to pay attention to something for two hours”

Luke: Want to watch a movie?

Me: Eh, I’m not sure I can commit two hours to that right now. Let’s watch 10 episodes of Veronica Mars instead!

emeraldcitycomicon:

Just wanted to take a moment to post our policy on harassment on tumblr, it is also on our website, and will be in the program guide. The image attached is the sign we will have displayed throughout the convention.

Emerald City Comicon’s mission is to create a safe, awesome environment where geeks of all kinds can come together. We have a zero tolerance policy for harassment of any kind.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments (related to race, gender, sexual orientation, body size, disability, appearance, and religion), overly sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact and unwelcome sexual attention.
Exhibitors, sponsors and guests are subject to our anti-harassment policy as well and have also been informed. In particular, exhibitors should not use images or material that surpasses a PG-13 rating at their booths. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use over-sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes.
If a person engages in harassing behavior, ECCC Directors and Department Heads may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from Emerald City Comicon (with no refund). If you are being harassed, witness someone else being harassed or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Emerald City Comicon staff immediately (identifiable by green Minion t-shirts or black polos/Staff badges). We are happy to contact our security or local law enforcement, provide escort, a safe place, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the convention.
All attendees, exhibitors and staff are subject to this anti-harassment policy and are expected to follow these rules at all Emerald City Comicon events.

Thank you!

Emerald City is one of my very favorite shows in the world, and this is the iceberg-tip of why.
Obligatory panel plug: On Saturday, at 12:40, in Hall D, Laura Hudson, Janelle Asselin, Bobby Roberts, and I will be talking about harassment in geek communities.

Thank you, Emerald City Comic Con for being a positive example for other fan conventions when it comes to harassment issues.

Perfect. It’s not hard to deliver this message, so I don’t know why other cons are struggling to get rid of the ambiguity in their harassment policies.Never been to ECCC, hope I get there someday, it seems lovely.

The Great Backlog Battle of 2014

I used to play the same games over and over again. Because I loved them, of course, but also because new games were an unaffordable luxury for my college and immediate post-college years. Since 2007, when I started writing about games professionally, I’ve been completely immersed in the industry and constantly swimming in new releases. Not only does that give me less time for old games, it means some of the new games I intended to play pass me by.
