Gothing it up

Tonight we will be in the vendors corner of club Midnight in DC. We have never been a vendor in a club before, but we are pretty excited to give it a try. Danielle came up with some pretty sweet new jewelry designs that we are debuting tonight, and they are definitely appropriate for the venue. They will show up on the internets sometime next week, as we get a chance to photo and post them.

This week I discovered the PATV videos, where you get to see the behind the scenes of the Penny Arcade machine. They were fascinating and inspiring, I would highly suggest checking them out. Watching them fills me with pride in the gaming culture. These two guys started playing games and drawing comics in their apartment, and now they run a business, a charity, and run a huge biannual convention. They now represent the American gaming culture in a large way, and I personally feel that they do a pretty good job of it.

Omonom in the DC goth scene

Still no info about the new products, but we did find out that there is a goth club in DC that has vendors come in and sell stuff on Saturday nights. We'll be at Club Midnight on Saturday May 29th, selling our adorable wares. Everybody recognizes old school nintendo, even goth kids.

The Protomen are an awesome band

So I went to see the Protomen this week. They are an incredible band to see live. Anyone who is a fan of Megaman and epicness should check them out, and see them live if possible.

Here at the Omonom headquarters, things are going well. I will have a new product to unveil soon, we've had some friends playtest it and it has gotten very positive reactions. Since the prototype is pretty beat up now, I'll make a new one, hopefully the final version, and post some pictures up here.

A couple weeks ago we went to a anime and gaming convention called T-MODE. It was in Alexandria (fairly local for us) and it was pretty fun. It's not a big con, focusing on a more intimate kind of experience. It was a fun place to meet people and hang out, so anyone looking for a more casual gaming and anime con experience would have a lot of fun there.
