Further Confusion 2019 is this weekend, and every year it sneaks up on me just like this. Lulled into a false sense of normalcy by the end of the holiday season, I start to get into a pretty good groove when suddenly the third weekend of January taps me on the shoulder to remind me … Continue reading Further Confusion 2019
Further Confusion 2017 is right around the corner! Just two weeks after New Year's Day, the convention feels a lot closer to the holidays than ever before -- not that I'm complaining. Further Confusion actually feels like a part of the holiday season at this point, the last gasp of companionship and partying before we … Continue reading (Fandom) Further Confusion 2017
Further Confusion 2016 is in the books, and I for one am quite glad it's over.

There were nearly 3,600 attendees this year, and it felt like there was an unending parade of things to do, people to see and places to be. I had a … Continue reading Hey Furries, Meet Sci-Fi/Fantasy!
Last weekend I headed up to Seattle for the annual ode to anthropomorphics in the Pacific Northwest, Rainfurrest. It's a really nice convention, and it's positioned itself well -- in the crowded furry con landscape, I don't think there are too terribly many events in September. It's also one of the only conventions that makes … Continue reading Rainfurrest 2013: Seattle Grunge
