Last year, when I was the Guest of Honor at Capricon XXXI, I made the offhand and not especially serious comment that I would come back the next year and DJ their 80s dance for them. To which Sondra De Jong, the convention chair for Capircon XXXII, said “CHALLENGE ACCEPTED” (more or less, I may be paraphrasing).
And thus, I have indeed been roped in to DJ a 80s-themed dance at Capricon XXXII, which takes place February 9 – 12. And this is what I have to say about that:
ZOMG YOU GUYS IT’S GOING TO BE SO AWESUM.
Also: Cory Doctorow’s the Guest of Honor. So there’s that too.
More details about the dance (like, which actual night of the convention) to come. And yes, I’ll probably be doing other stuff at the convention too. But I’m mostly there for the dance, man.
