Baycon 2006 

Photos and video from Baycon, San Jose, California, May 26, 2006.

Here is an example of the typical social behavior of the Zombius Seananus species. By resting her chin gently atop the head of another, she demonstrates her affection for that member of the tribe. This one now knows he is safe from having his brain eaten by her. Note his relieved expression, as she searches her surroundings for a different victim upon which to feast.

Here, we see a variation on the chin-rest behavior of Zombius Seananus. By allowing Foxius Vixius to approach, she is demonstrating acceptance. Vixius must be careful, though. If the Seananus receives bad news via the cell phone, she is still in danger of having her head accidentally bitten off, ala Mantodea.

Jeff, Maya, Seanan, and Vixy rehearse "Falling" on Saturday afternoon. As you can see, this is a stitching of two photos. Usually I crop my stitched panorama photos so that you can't see the edges, but I thought this one looked interesting. It allows you to see how the stitching software must warp the photos to make the overlaps match up.

This is what we were doing instead of going to Kanef's parody-writing panel. I'm sorry I missed it, but this rehearsal time allowed us to perform on each other's songs during the concerts that night.

The Saturday night filk circle, angle 1. We see more than one of the species Seananus in this picture. This explains her seemingly impossible ability to write more things in one week than most people are capable of writing in a year.

An example of some of the great costuming you see at Baycon every year. Not just Lego minifigs, but Star Wars Lego minifigs. Brilliant.

Another great costume. He had the whole routine down, too.

Carolyn 'Cat' Magdael looks horrified that I'm photographing her after she's just gotten done playing Dance Dance Revolution with Seananus. She didn't stop me, though. What a good sport.

On Sunday night, there was supposed to be a panel on music recording and publishing in the San Jose room. But the previous panel on Polyamory was running long. Since there were autograph tables just outside the door to the San Jose room, Jeff decided to grab some chairs and hold the panel right then and there. This photo was taken just as they were getting started, by the end of the panel, a bunch of people had gathered and pulled up more chairs. It worked quite well.

Katherine Sylvan and Kendra Dodd sung a beautiful harmony duet during the filk circle on Sunday night. Tommy Garcia looks on approvingly, Alex Bohnhoff listens intently.
