[4:02] Add that i kinda grew up on i grew up in science fiction convention so falcons always been a part of my life i was
you know the little kid who probably shouldn't of been up in the middle of the night is making a pallet in the corner while everybody saying around me up scotty.

[4:21] Well it happened that's good hey next generation of and on that url yet.

Who were those years ago truoc look at the colour the better now.

[4:46] Okay so that kinda like what films y'all got so that yet but i did know that there are things like that so that will be interesting is that something to look at.

[4:55] So how did you become an you just said that to become involved then she'll get the kit on the pallet.
What other parents were doing this but how did you become involved with dragon con in dragon con i have been volunteering for.
Fourteen maybe fifteen years ago um i started with the apocalypse rising track because of the fact that i use to write a blog about TV show called jericho.

[5:22] I'm not showing you can watch on netflix and amazon prime FYI food doesn't know i am but because of the fact that my aunt was involved with the sill track.

[5:35] They were super short staffed one year and she's like i don't know what i'm gonna do my god that's fine,
you know come sit with you and the evenings after i'm done with my shift set my close friends and where,
i didn't sleep at all that time but it was fun in the oven so that i moved over to add to the track to help them out and then ended up being second home i wanna say.
Nine years i was assistant director under your arm when robbie decided to step down after the show last year he recommended that i go ahead and take over as director so we gotta a relatively smooth transition,
i still like to harass him every once in a while but he actually gets to enjoy dragon con for the very first time is just a fan this year wow that would be very different,
what is up how u been many years since i had been how can i just show up,
he actually never came to dragon con until he got the director role for a film with cumberbatch in his very first dragon con.
What is as director just up that little bit of a baptism by fire there but hey thats good but.

and will be working with the costuming track is well getting a few piano lessons to chat for tips and tricks you know how to.

[13:28] Staying properly insane in a course you know yeah that would be really i can't imagine seeing it a course or really tights or anything like that yahoo,
jumping up and down around stage when you got you know up the full acct not even just that close browser other parts of the costuming like the way you are,
what ever other accessories you may be doing yeah.

[14:01] Now we have to be difficult to jump around and play and how you know,
oh that would be difficult that would be good eight bet all the seventies or jumping around and i started for someone reason
seeing all the old eighties band that have those really big hair that were actually we not use their hair just thought about that nowhere how you
how do you keep those on lol where can o you know thinking of it even like adam and the ants just how u play guitar with the big puffy sleeved.
What do you do makeup for running i can i can keep,
i liner or mascara even getting water proof or whatever else just to walk around atlanta humidity in the morning i think if i'm trying to like come up there with those lights and i'm all out.

[15:00] That would be difficult.

[15:05] Emery still there yes they are you help me to open that would be a very interesting good in a really cool sign out what a
i think one of the other things to what's become about feel pain cuz you brought yourself that you know that you are the kid on the pallet then your daughter.
we're still saying that second generation third generation or whatever generation where you for driving time now what are you doing anything for some of those younger generations
we are working on this will be the second year that we work with the kids track are we will be on working with them without kids feel so we've got some performers that have some great songs that little kids can pick up and sing along and
yelp play the mirror and do that and i both will be there is
sunday but i could be wrong we'll have to see how the schedule works out
all dates and times are subject to change,
always that's why nobody talks about him
officially yet until about a week or two before coming in there is rain every i always like to put on any kind of caveat of until,
what ever starting.

[16:23] Actually starts and i would not sure exactly what it will be never hook not gonna run with that you gonna be what's gonna be part of driving time and i know we say it s probably every other podcast is,
just be flexible don't have to worry three things you think you might wanna go and see,
yeah you never know i didn't example last year,
i said earlier by the internet because of the fact that he does podcast we started doing some life podcast,
what are some other performers in the room and we take an hour and do that well last year on the broad did nothing which is a member of we're performing over the concourse and americas mart.

[17:09] Yeah they got stuck.
And the americas mart and who i was kinda starting to panic and then i happened to see one of the other performers mikey mason i don't like my new.
What you play hey you around the podcast up.
Come on u-direct yeah everybody's flexible dryers members.
Volunteers and even our wonderful gaston pros,
off the bat white very true your just say something about um at walmart.
Show i just remember.

[17:53] This is very much how long ago this may be there use to be like a small stage that was on the lower level of the high yet.

[18:03] Where are they right in front where the art show would be is that now that kind of stage is not the mark i believe a call will provide clearance yet gilbert actually runs the concourse and i believe that be awesome.
Add this stage that sound from the height which is actually very close to our room.
Yeah i wouldn't be on yet would have to be on your site almost two level yeah yeah yeah it's actually right out side on other the hanover hallway where we are,
are there still gonna be stuck there and i'm not sure what's the state of the second stage but i do know that concourse will have a second stage
i'm just contact where i am because i know that there were some issues with i just the logistics of getting people in and out of the room but they weren't,
there you go but there is a plan for it so you can still view if anybody is wondering how you know there's gonna be stuff listed under feel track and then they're gonna be under,
course you know that you places to look and then just start walking around late at night and then there might be more bands going,
i'll be making programming or many other places listed.
And then also every evening we have what we refer to is open philips where anyone is welcome to come and share a song or spoken word or anything to do with fandom wiki by track room open until three thirty in the morning.

[19:30] Hi artificial programming so we have open filter every evening and we went out with the excuse me we will have a few open philips during the day on.
Including on friday what we like to do is open all of our shows where i want peanut what is philip,
where we go over that the explanations were usually also have a few performers to come and you know just play a few songs,
and then we had a meet and greet with some of the performers as they are available and then we have what we call silken cookies.
Where we provide the cookies n you provide the filter menu are always welcome to come and participate or just sit and listen.
Can you get a cookie if you just listen yeah so where did we go we do also get custom fortune cookies done every year that we have for fucking cookies all of the fortunes have something to do with our performers for the year.

[20:27] Ok that's okay awesome i didn't know you did that is ok up first i didn't know you could make a custom for a gift but i did know you did that that is really need me.
And he is so good i think its because ive never had actually fresh fortune cookies until we started doing this morning
you're not supposed to taste like cardboard people who were supposed to have this nice little like i need citrus vanilla kinda flavor.

[20:59] Sometimes they are very kind of you.
I like i like fortune cookies yes people i want to know real foggy good fortune cookies are good,
don't drink don't a cardboard but no one there help now a course by monday if there are any left hand
i'm one of the few folks that works the track that's local i'd start handing them out in piles please take them home i don't want to take them
what's the move no there's only so many people at so many cookies my family,
yeah are you not wish to take any horrible.

[21:38] That is really good so i would like my charity heard me talk about that is there anything you guys are doing for charity this year.
