... Wait a minute, I just noticed something...
2:30 Panel: Conan’s Birthday! A panel devoted to our favorite Cimmerian in honor of his 80th Birthday! Panelists will include Paul Sammon, Al Harron and others. At the Library.
Yes, I was very graciously invited to join a panel alongside the esteemed and erudite Paul Sammon and others (which others? We'll find out!) to talk about the man whose mirth and melancholy could hardly be described as minuscule. Naturally, discussion will be about the original Conan, but I think there'll be some talk about the wider Conan franchise to an extent, though my moratorium on the film will remain.
I can scarcely believe only three years after first setting foot in Cross Plains, that I would be one of the panelists at such an occassion. Will wonders never cease?
