So with just under two weeks to go, I have finally gotten around to this: the DW/LJ entry where I post about going to Boskone 2014!

Want to see me there? Here's where I'll be. (Full schedule is up here, if you want to see what else is going on!)

Saturday, 10:00 - 10:50 AM: Tie-In Novels: Writing Within the Rules. Nancy Holder (moderator), Ginjer Buchanan, Craig Shaw Gardner, Batya "The Toon" Wittenberg. A panel about "the art of writing original fiction within established and well-known worlds," on which I'm going to be the representative fanfic writer. ahahahahahahaha.

Saturday, 4:00 - 4:50 PM: Chapter and Verse: Songs About Books. Gary D. McGath
Edward L. Stauff, Mary Ellen Wessels, Batya "The Toon" Wittenberg. A round-robin-style concert, featuring short passages from books and stories that inspired songs, and then the songs themselves.

Saturday, 11:00 - 11:50 PM: Boskone Filk Fest, Set 2. A concert set with Lady Mondegreen and Featured Filker Bill Roper!

Sunday, 11:00 - 11:25 AM: Kids' Concert with Lady Mondegreen. Pretty much what it says on the tin.

Sunday, 2:00 - 2:50 PM: Nattering About Songwriting. Talis Kimberley (moderator), Mary Crowell, Batya "The Toon" Wittenberg. A panel about the creative process.


I'm also planning to be around at the open filk whenever possible, of course.

So many fantastic people are going to be at this con and I will get to be on panels and in concert with some of them EEEE I CAN'T WAIT IT'S GONNA BE SO AWESOME.

Off to the wilds of Chicago for DucKon, where I will be performing as part of Lady Mondegreen -- and otherwise enjoying what promises to be a really stellar filk track.

Be back Monday evening, may have sporadic 'net access between now and then.

Catch you later, all!
batyatoon: (Lady Mondegreen)
I really should announce these things farther in advance....

Alex and I are going to be at Duckon on June 18-20, where I will be performing as part of Lady Mondegreen on Saturday at 3pm. IT'S GONNA BE AWESOME.

We're currently scheduled to be in Chicago through that Monday, and might even have a chance to get in some sightseeing. Here's hoping; I haven't been to Chicago proper since I was a very wee Batya indeed.



ETA: Sadly, this means we're not going to make Conterpoint this year. Woe and alas.
batyatoon: (Lady Mondegreen)
And we're off.

A week in England, divided roughly equally between London and Basingstoke. Centered on Lady Mondegreen's first international concert.

I don't expect to have any internet access in England; if by some miracle I get some, I'll post to let people know I aten't dead. But meanwhile, don't expect to see me until about a week from tonight. Possibly not till the following night, as I fully expect to be exhaustimacated.

If anything comes up in the next week that you particularly want me to see, please link it in the comments here (or wait a week and link it in the comments to my Hi I'm Back announcement, if you'd rather).

Be good while I'm gone, y'all. If you can't be good, be careful. And if you can't be careful, at least put the details behind a cut-tag, okay?

*hugs* Later.

So. As I posted here nearly a year ago....

My filk group, Lady Mondegreen, is going to be the International Guests of Honor at the D'zenove Convention over the weekend of February 2nd through the 4th, 2007.

For those of you in the UK, this means I'll be on your side of the pond for about five days; for NY locals and those of you who generally only see me online, this means I'll be away for nearly a week. We're leaving New York on the night of Tuesday, January 30th; arriving in London late morning Wednesday, January 31st; spending a day or two at a hotel in Golder's Green; heading to the con in Basingstoke on Friday, February 2nd; returning to London on Monday, February 5th; and flying home on Tuesday, February 6th.

(We're not sure yet how we're getting from London to Basingstoke and back. Any Brits reading this, feel free to offer suggestions.)

Further plans, and further nervous/excited flailing, shall be posted as they develop.

In about six and a half hours, God and airline security willing, I will be boarding a plane for California in the company of my dear clone [livejournal.com profile] ladymondegreen, there to rehearse most obscenely and courageously* with [livejournal.com profile] cadhla and [livejournal.com profile] sweetmusic27.

*Not actually obscenely. But courageously. I hope.

Don't know what my computer/internet access will be like, but my spare time to spend on it is likely to be roughly that I might expect at a con weekend, so I fully expect to have bankrupted my pants by the time I get back late Sunday night. Drop me a note if anything crucial comes up.

A happy Thanksgiving to all my compatriots, and a good weekend to everybody everywhere. See you all soon.

Ah, the Ohio Valley Filk Festival, last of the autumn holidays.

Here's some highlights of this year's. )

More later, perhaps.
Such a good weekend.

Posting from the Crowne Plaza hotel in beautiful Worcester, MA, where we are staying for Concertino, this year's iteration of the Noreast Floating Filk Con.

My group, Lady Mondegreen, will be performing on Sunday at 3:00pm. (Here's what else will be going on, if you're wondering.)

Have internet access but very very limited. Should be back home lateish Sunday night. See y'all then! Except those of you who're coming to Concertino, whom I'll see in a few hours.

*bounces!*
batyatoon: (yaaaaah!)
Um.

So.

I can't really do a whole lot better than to quote [livejournal.com profile] cadhla here:

It is my distinct pleasure and stunned honour to announce that Lady Mondegreen will be appearing at D'zenove Convention, to be held in Basingstoke over the weekend of February 2nd through the 4th, 2007.

Yeah, uh.

That's all I've got, except a whole big lot of high-pitched squeeing.

Lady Mondegreen is going to England.

They asked us to.

This. Just.

Wow.

*incoheres*

Because I forgot to do this yesterday:

Our filk group, Lady Mondegreen, now has its very own website. With pictures and repertoire list and a few sample mp3 downloadables!

Go see!
