In just a little over a month, the premier fan convention in Sioux Falls, SiouxperCon, will host its annual gathering. Unlike the previous four years, though, this year’s convention will be moved entirely online. With this being 2020, I don’t think any explanations are necessary; everything seems to be getting canceled this year.
Over the next month, I hope to do posts highlighting some of the guests that will be a part of this convention. But before doing that, I wanted to remind everyone that SiouxperCon (or SiouxperCONLINE as its know this year) is not just about getting together and celebrating geek culture. An essential part of SiouperCon is that proceeds from the con go to support two deserving charities right here in South Dakota: REACH Literacy and the JY6 Foundation. Both charities are worth checking out and supporting.
That is all I have to say for right now. I just wanted to make sure people are aware of these crucial charities before posting posts about the great lineup of guests appearing at SiouxperCONLINE this year.
PS. I know I haven’t blogged for a few months. That was a mixup with Facebook, which I think is fixed now.
Song of the Day: The Book I Read
This classic Talking Heads song isn’t about reading. But when I think of Reach Literacy, I can’t help but think about this classic song.
Bonus Song: Heroes
Any group that is doing something to fight pediatric cancer has my utmost respect. So when I think of the JY6 Foundation, this song from David Bowie comes to mind. This is a great live version of the song.
