The L.A. Marathon, as well, moved with less than 6 months warning.
It's interesting how his assumptions keep changing from minute-to-minute. Meh.
@Hakaider. I talked to a few people about their interest in going back to AX under my structure and had a positive response, so I don't see why not. The Touhou dinner went better than I thought it would for a lot of improvisation. The podcast I did, one of the other people interviewed recognized me and I was surprised. It's one of the coincidences you think isn't possible, but it happened. I didn't interact a terrible amount with them because I spent time with my wife and she's not terribly comfortable with new people, but they were all friendly and eager to help. Very, VERY nice people in the Touhou group.
The X-Games won't be there, so that headache is out of the way. My hope is that the AX works on it's inter-departmental and fan communication before then so things are clearer before and at the convention.
