GLENN HAUMAN: A personal plea from I-Con way
Okay, it says that this is theoretically an opinion column, but really, this is all fact.
Friday night, while I was escorting a number of actresses from the annual Destinies Mystery Guest show at I-Con, we were forced to go through a crowd of LARPers to exit the building.
The smell was, shall we say, pungent. And that’s being polite. I’ve smelled better rotten meat and curdled milk. The comments between us after we could breathe again were savage.
Guys, I hate to have to say this, but clearly I must because some of you aren’t getting the message:
ATTRACTIVE WOMEN ARE LAUGHING AT YOU BECAUSE OF THE WAY YOU SMELL. FOR GOD’S SAKE, BATHE REGULARLY AND WASH YOUR LEOTARDS.
Feel free to support the cause by buying one of John Kovalic’s t-shirts here.
There will be longer posts about I-Con when we get a few more minutes. It’s a madhouse here.
Oh, and before I forget: ComicMix‘s Robert Greenberger will have a film preview panel tomorrow (Sunday) in Javitz at 1. It’s not on the program, but get there early anyway.
