Maybe we could use half-naked hannah as a sort of beacon. Whenever the qc-ers are scattered, we can use her to lead and gather them together.

Dovey where do you go dancing in Perth? I know of like, the Court, but that is pretty much it.

Man I kinda wish I'd unlurked on these forums much earlier so I would feel comfortable inviting myself along to such a gathering. But I do not really know anybody at all yet! Well, there will have to be another "AusCon" in the future then.  8-)

This is true, but I probably want to plan something in Februrary before, well, February. I will see though, people here do seem pretty awesome.

Based on your avatar alone I deem you worthy of hanging out with the Aussies that are currently planning to attend. Just start posting and plan on being there!

I don't really. None of my friends like doof doof music and I don't exactly want to go to raves myself. Also I guess I spend most of my free time (which isn't much) with my girl and she definitely does not like dance (no matter how hard I try).

That being said, I like Shape. It is half a block away from my work as well. Although it is also about 50 blocks away from anything else at all so it makes it hard to factor it into a night out unless you are specifically going to Shape and you know you will be there the whole time. I haven't been to the Library but I hear good things and music-wise the deen is often OK but it is also filled with fucking douchebags. I would go to Connections or the Court if I could actually convince someone to come with me and that they won't get cracked onto.

(for the non-Perth types: Connections and the Court are the two main gay bars here)

I am getting too damn old to go out nightclubbing most of the time anyway. Also I don't drink and ecstacy is hella expensive most of the time here so there's that as well.

Well Sean, I did not think of that at first.

Dovey you are only 21! I know this now. That is too young to be giving up on going dancing because going dancing is fabulous.

Connections is horrrrible.You're not missing out there. The Court's more of a (slightly trashy) anything goes, everyone-friendly club that's neat since it's off in a different direction from horrible places. The Library looks pretty neat. I'll have to keep that one in mind.

I feel as if my reply will decide whether or not Tommydski is coming to AusCon.

In my experience, 'going out dancing' means throwing yourself into a crowd of sweaty drunken people flailing to Top40 remixes and knowing all the words.
Dancing in your undies on top of the bed, or with a bunch of people you know to music you aren't ashamed of, is a whole heap better. I guess AusCon will be the latter (and hopefully the former), so it doesn't really matter anyway.

Liz I am twenty two in about a week and a half. I expect presents (naked pictures will do just fine)

As Lunchoid said I have been going out and dancing for- not quite five years- but for quite a while now, and I am a little burned out and I kind of just enjoy watching movies with my girlfriend at home at the moment? I work such dumb hours and get no sleep that by the time I get to the weekend I can not move let alone stay out til 4am throwing shapes.

Also as she said there are usually a lot of people at these things and sometimes I am not crazy about people some times.

I'm sure I will get the bug and want to go out and rave again soon (I am being abandoned by The Girl tonight and the Bang Gang Deejays are having a party so maybe tonight?).

ANYWAY SO HEY LET'S TALK ABOUT OZCON OR SOME SHIT AM I RIGHT

Hey OzBastards I am probably booking my tickets this week or next while I still have such a thing as "spare money" and I was wondering if it is still a Thing that we are going to be extending this out past the weekend for the purpose of sweet Rizzo lovin'? If so how many days are other interstate people looking at hanging about?

I am looking at a flight that will probably get me into Sydney around midday on Friday, and I guess I have no idea for the other flight, seeing as I have no idea what day.

If I had the money I would go to AusCon just to hang out with Dovey.

Maybe in 2010 or something.

Can that, gotten my marks back, probably won't get into Wellington. Will almost certainly be coming to Sydney on the 23rd.
I don't mind if people don't stick around but I would like to catch up with the Sydney/New Castle crew who I saw last time. :D

Let me know the dates and I will be there.

I am now working Thursday, Friday and Saturday every week, but it is possible for me to take time off/swap days around etc, because when you work for parentals, you can do that.

Is this happening in January or February? I cannot remember and I am confused.

Because there are a whopping 5 pages to skim through looking for a facebook link. I guess 4? Because you're already on this page. But that'd be FAR too much for you to look at.

Man if you can't skim through 4 pages of text for a link (one which would be easy to find by running a search for "facebook" on each page), I don't know if you'd deserve to go. It took you 3 hours to reply. In the time you have taken to reply twice you could have found the link.

Unfortunately it's pretty much like the rest of Australia in that regard. We do have a large bat population to balance it out, though.
