(108b) Production Notes

I was really busy over the last few weeks, preparing for Denver Comic Con (I had a sorta higher-level volunteer position), so I apologize to everyone who’s emailed me recently that I hadn’t gotten back to. That should now be corrected.

Speaking of which, I moderated three panels at DCC: What Can You Say To A “Young Adult”, Everything I Need To Know About Life I Learned From Super-Villains, and Religion in SF/F. I think they went pretty well, the audio of the first panel is available here, and the other two are coming later this week at my blog.

A listener pointed out that when Eliezer re-wrote Chapter 9 Penelope Clearwater got a few additional lines that I never got from Zoe Chace! I emailed her to ask if she’d do a few more, as it has been quite a few years since I first asked her help. She replied with “dude, obviously. i’m not gonna leave penelope hanging”  *SQUEEE*!!!!

And yes, I seem to have fallen in love with Sleigh Bells recently. Or at least, their Reign of Terror album. You might hear a few more pieces of their stuff in the background over the next couple episodes.

(106 & 107) Production Notes

Real short notes today.

* Many thanks to everyone who tried out for Voldemort, I’m pleased with the results and grateful at how many people were willing to put themselves forward!

* I just returned from a LessWrong meetup in Denver. These things are really cool, if you’re near Denver and would like to come to one drop me a line. It looks like we’ll be doing another one the first Tuesday of next month.

* Also, if you’re going to Denver Comic Con this year, I’m helping to coordinate the Author Track Panels. I’ll be in room 203 most of the day all three days, feel free to say hi!

* Yes, I know Harry complains a couple times about how slow they are going. Compared to how fast Quirrell could whip through the corridor, it’s probably slow. But compared to how long it would take a level-appropriate party to work through the corridor, this is definitely a speed run.
