Smithson Thus Far... ·


The Bodyworlds exhibition convinced me to get a tattoo when Narbonic finished. One of the bodies had a tattoo and was sliced open so you could see how deep the ink went into the flesh. For whatever perverse reason, seeing just how permanent a tattoo is made me want to get one. So thanks, corpse museum!

Anyway...Narbonicon ended with Narbonic itself, so this was the last one. It was a really good one. I still miss them.

(I didn't eat any gel brain.)

Adam Underfoot (unnatural20) says: You didn't eat any gel brain!?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

So what would the Skin Horse version of Narbonicon be called?  "Skin Con" sounds like adults-only ... "B.O.S.S. Con" is too close to "Boskone" ... Come on, Garritites, we need to do this.

Jim McGrath (scaryjim) says:

Ed: surely a skin horse convention would have to be called Annex CON?

John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

You can get gel Cruetzfeldt-Jakob disease from eating gel brains.

Scon Horse?

K. Williams (crazy_quill) says:

SHCon, perhaps?

Rachel S. (masamage) says:

Lurch For the Cure?

Joseph Abbott (faxpaladin) says:


Tetra Valent (4_valent) says:

"Fun Lurch".  Turn that wallpaper into real T-shirts.

Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says:

I seem to recall that the gel brain tasted rather appealingly almond-y, but it was fairly subtle.

I know it sounds goofy, but the Narbonicon weekends were some of the best and most memorable weekends of my life thus far.  A moment of thanks to the cartoon that made it all happen.

Kay Gilbert (kaygilbert) says:

I still vote for the name Shaenonicon, and I still say we have to do one for all the Narbonic and Skin Horse fans.  Again, I'm willing to host here in LA, but I know there was a groundswell for Indianapolis or somewhere else midcontinental.
