 Press: Oni and Harknell talk Doctor Who Conventions on Who’s Talking

I have been extremely busy. Not only am I managing 2 conventions at once and working on a book, but I am also starting a new job this week – and we had a snow day, just to make it all that much more interesting.

We had the opportunity to go on Who’s Talking and talk about Doctor Who conventions, and of course share some secret info about what we have planned and not yet announced regarding (Re)Generation Who. you’ll have to listen to hear us spill the beans.

meet-me-at-magfest-in-md-this-weekend
 Meet me at Magfest in MD this weekend!

What is my absolute favorite convention besides Intervention and (Re)Generation Who? Magfest.

Magfest is a unique gaming convention that has a ridiculously huge amount of arcade cabinets and vintage games set up along with a 4 day music festival. It’s basically a gigantic party that anyone who likes cool shit will love.

I will be there with fellow (Re)Generators James Harknell (Co-Showrunner) and Kara Dennison (Community Manager) looking for the best Doctor Who cosplayers. Those that we photograph will be featured on the (Re)Generation Who Facebook page. We’ll also be giving out stickers and random cool shit, so hope to see you there! You’ll be able to recognize us as I will be the only red dalek with a bald man.

 I am a woman of results

In 2010 when I and like, 8 people who are now senior staff or alumni started Intervention: The Premier Showcase of Online Creativity I told you I’d have a surprise for you in 2015.

29512-No-Time-To-Explain-Get-In-The-Van

This turned out to be (Re)Generation Who, which is so strong specifically because we’ve had 5 years to train the team and to design our own shit, like The War Games which is our QR code mobile phone game which will be playable at ReGen this year. No one else has that because Wesley Mason made it and we play tested it for years at Intervention. (Blog post coming this week on ReGen’s version – it looks like we may even have some guest participation.)

This year Intervention is evolving as planned (to be announced within days) and you guys aren’t fuckin’ stupid so is it too early to let you know that I have a surprise x2 for you each year leading up to 2020 when shit is gonna go apeshit? I can promise you without reservation that you haven’t even see 1% of the ideas that we have and that we WILL implement. We are going to be able to do so much good for so many people in the community.

Registration is open for both, get on the bus early:

 It could be worse

After 2 friends of mine passing away in the same weekend, my mother in law passing away the following weekend and then my friend’s Dad the week after that, I came back to work and was told that I no longer have a job.

If anyone is hiring a senior level Multichannel Marketing Manager with a high level of skill in Software Development (websites, iPad, iPhone) please let me know. You can see my full resume on my LinkedIn here.

In the meantime, I will be working full time on (Re)Generation Who and you’ll see more art from me. Opportunities! :)

disney-and-dooney-and-bourke-dont-care-about-quality-anymore-my-haunted-mansion-bag-began-to-break-after-5-days
 Disney and Dooney and Bourke don’t care about quality anymore? My Haunted Mansion bag began to break after 5 days

Remember when I blogged about how an alarming number of the Disney Dooney and Bourke Haunted Mansion bags were falling apart within the first week of being carried? My bag (which was a gift from my husband) lasted just 5 days before it began to break. This bag was $250. I’ll be returning it. I can’t even get a replacement because it seems that the entire line is faulty and would just break in another 5 days.

Disney and Dooney and Bourke need to fix this but I can’t get any word back from either company for over a week now. I took the Keys to the Kingdom tour last year in Florida’s Magic Kingdom and a big thing was not setting guests up for disappointment. I feel that they failed on that here – on an epic scale. After wanting this bag for a year it was a fiasco to get my hands on one when they re-released it. Then I get it and it breaks. I read that this is a new material for the bags so if you have another type of Disney Dooney yours may not have this issue. However this experience and the non responses I’ve gotten over it have put me off of ever buying another bag like this.

Click here for more pix of what is happening with these bags after just days of use.

This is a total shame because really – these bags are lovely. Disney always releases great designs. Disney’s Haunted Mansion is one of my favorite things in the world. If these bags were made of quality materials it would easily be my most favorite possession. I hope that they do not see the high number of returns they are likely getting and say that there is no market for Haunted Mansion bags. I would have bought every bag in the line and kept them if they were built to last.

After having had 4 funerals to attend in just 1 month this bag was the only thing to get a smile from me in an otherwise terrible situation. It’s stupid that it cheered me up like that, but it did. When you are going through terrible things silly things can help.

But now it’s lasting power makes Wal-Mart bags look luxe. I feel ripped off and sad. :(
