I don't have any exact figures, I doubt anyone has them but the actual convention managers, but the consensus from every source is that they wound up in a major hole of shit. Conventions are expensive, and they're usually "paid" for through hotel bookings; since hardly anyone showed up, the hotel fees had to be covered out of pocket by the convention managers. The 17 grand was apparently just enough to cover the 4,000+ unsold bookings for that night, and left the DashCon staff with nothing to pay their panelists.

It's like if you're a local band, and you've got to cover a certain ticket spread for the show you're going to play. If you can sell a lot of tickets, you're fine. The venue's happy, you're happy, you might even get a nice fat bonus too. But if you fuck up and only sell, say, a quarter of the tickets you're contractually obligated to unload, the venue will squeeze you for the remainder, and you may wind up paying through the nose for the privilege of playing on stage that night. Basically, you want to own the hotel, not run the convention.

I'm not saying all of his songs are great or that he can turn shit into gold, merely that he's been working with terrible source material for his entire career ("Sharona" is worse than "Royals", and "U Can't Touch This" is only amusing in an ironic/nostalgic sense; I'm sure kids today will be looking back on - what is it? "Fancy"? - in the same way, twenty years from now)

I don't think I've ever heard the original. Maybe a snippet here and there, but never the whole way through; the Puddles version is the only version I'm actually familiar with.

Still, with that said, taking terrible pop songs and making them fun is something Weird Al has always done. Can we really look back and say songs like "Can't Touch This" and "My Sharona" were anything but humdrum and forgettable?

As we've discussed before, you'll have to do a lot better than the DashCon people did if you want to turn Tumblr conventioneering into a Randian moneymaking opportunity. Even with their last-ditch appeals to altruism, the DashCon staff wound up losing a lot of money on this venture, and worse, they've ruined their reputation (which counts for a lot when you've got to compete on an open market). Unless they can find a way to turn themselves into "ironic" celebrities ("We're the Tommy Wi's of the Convention World!") and cash in on the viral success of memes like #BallPit, they're pretty much done for. Think of them like Detroit auto czars, only without the ability to keep themselves swimming in caviar by extorting tax-funded welfare checks from George Dubya Obama.

The market's there, and there are plenty of suckers, but you (we?!) will need to do lots more planning and be much better prepared if we want to do something like this and walk away with a profit.

Yeah, Elton John is pretty bad, but for what it's worth, this was probably his least awful song.

Here's a good write-up about the Dashcon drama; it's pretty clean, but it's ED so assume NSFW:

A lot of this is probably old news by now, but the EDiots have included some interesting details, like the programming schedule and "smoking gun" screencaps from various groups involved.

"Crocodiles" are large aquatic reptiles native to tropical regions. They spend their days hunting. They do not spend their time "rocking"; crocodiles do not even know what that word means.

I don't think you'd get many A-Logs at a brony convention. Tumblr? Yeah, well, acting like a giant scrotum towards people who aren't really any more dorky than you are is the essence of the internet, isn't it?

You mean legislate more tax increases, which will drive away globalized businesses but also give the state more money to spend on important things like missile defense programs and Israeli foreign aid.

>>Still if they can wangle money out of DARPA and the military to develop awesome stuff like this
>>Although the donkey is superior in every way to the machine, it fails one crucial test. It's too cheap.

Pretty much this. I've often had heated arguments with tank nerds over the feasibility of legged mecha, and this is one point that the tiny brains of tank nerds (god they are so stupid) simply cannot grasp. The military is a business, and it needs to spend money to make money. Whether or not new technological designs are practical, optimal, or cost-effective is besides the point!

>> Neither should people, Binro; is the best argument for bigdog animal welfare? Cause if so it's pretty weak.

Not necessarily. All that means is*people* should be replaced with robots, too, which is actually a major rationale behind projects like these. It's not so much about keeping donkeys off the battlefield, it's about keeping people off the battlefield. Or at least, keeping *our* people off the battlefield; Hajji's still gonna be staring down the barrel of a mk19-mounted Bigdog, of course! ARF AaaARF!

My realitycreation is impressive. Because my highest joy was playing videogames since I was 5. I played so much videogames with sounds and frequenzys similar to this, its kinda scary how I was always on this path. One of my greatest wishes was it to overcome human "limitations" as well. How everything is comming together, its kind of funny. xD
