   Discussion: How many FruCons have you been to?
Andrea Krause · 18 years, 7 months ago
I'm sad I missed the first historic one. I was a fan at the time, but was a newbie...I'd only discovered them 3 months before. I wasn't yet sucked in enough to travel. :) I probably would have felt severely out of place and out of the loop even if I'd gone. It was a long time...probably when this site came about...before I really began to stop being an outsider.

I'm glad I made it to all the others though. They've been very different, each one. Plusses and minuses each time around. Wonder if we've seen our last?

I still always feel like an outsider, at least in person, which is one of the reasons I've never made it to any Frucons. *dramatic sigh* :P

OK, even I know that's not completely true. This is why people shouldn't listen to me. :)

I dunno.. somehow, I doubt we've seen our last..... If nothing else, it's a great time to see people you love.. and get to spend time in toronto, which is just a kickass city! :)

Allow me to clarify, however. I'm not a fan of the actual convention thingie... that's always far to "rabid-fan-like" for me....I just like spending the weekend in Toronto and going out on the town with fun people. :)

Andrea, I went to the first one and I felt completely out of place. :\ No one was there welcoming my friend and myself with "open arms" like they claim for newbies. I'll bet no one even remembers I was there.

I went, took pictures, had a great time at the show and then the next day I went to the video shoot of BNL's "Brian Wilson" video which was much more fun than FCI! And I still didn't know the people at the video shoot. :D

I think one of the things that draws fruheads together is that we *all* feel like outsiders. I mean, we dig a band that very seldom gets radio play, and almost no one has heard of.
Talcott Back · 18 years, 7 months ago
Not only that, but of the bands most of us listen to, Früvous is probably one of the most well known ;)

I HOPE we haven't seen our last! FruCon is quite possibly even funner than FRFF. coz it involved cupcakes. mmmm. and Jian and Lesters. more mmmm.
Jason Reiser Back · 18 years, 6 months ago
But FRFF has the mushroom lady! I can get awesome cupcakes just down the street, but those mushrooms are the source of dreams all winter long!

Frucons: 1-4 and I'm done
FRFF '97-'02 and counting :)

*and* FRFF has Taste Budd's Chocolate Dreams. Better than any silly FruCon cupcakes could dream of being. :)

It will go on forever!! For E-VER! Besides, I need to get my brother and some other friends to go. And talk about the open mike! I've got a couple of more constipated songs needing to get out...um...that..uh....didn't sound quite right. Oh, well. Carry on!
