Hi Ho Kiddies
It's that time of year again. And a busy year it's
going to be. So why not relax with some Hot Chili,
Liquid Nitrogen, Cooled Ice Cream, Old Friends, New
Faces, and time to say ... really what was in the
Chili? No seriously...
First and Formost I would like to thank the entire
crew (see convention committables/Comitted) for all their hard work.
Also First and formost thanking our Guests for
taking the time to stay and enjoy the sillyness of the
Also Mainly and Primarily. Thanks to all of you
who make this little relaxacon a fun time.
Have fun, Relax, Buy some stuff, read the paper, have
a good chin wag with the rest of the con.
Chairman, LaLaCon #12, 2006
At a time like this it is hard to express my gratitude to all those who helped to create LaLa Con #12 “La a note to Follow So”, but enough of that mushy stuff. It is time to have fun and relax. You know what it is to relax don’t you? It’s lying around on couches and schmoozing with your friends, eating chili hot enough to have steam coming from your ears, watch videos, go to panels, and so much more.
A BIG thank you to our guests, to the Committee and to Tadao without them I would be pulling my hair out and talking to myself “keep the men in the white coats away from me”.
So now go out into the world and spread the joy of LaLa Con.
Vice Chair, LaLa Con #12, 2006
Our Guests of Honor
Jason Stoddard (Writer Guest of Honor)
By day, Jason is just another frustrated engineer-turned-ad-guy who is busy twisting the minds of millions of consumers for his evil corporate masters. He’s responsible for America’s obesity problem, rising consumer debt, the ongoing trouble in the Middle East, and the latest failed Mars mission. Well, not quite. Jason does have an engineering degree. And he did escape to advertising. But the companies he works with are more likely to be involved in nanotechnology, atomic mapping, or advanced communications than fast food or cosmetics.
At night, he writes science fiction that has been seen in Sci Fiction, Interzone, Strange Horizons, and Futurismic, among others. Unfortunately, none of the agents or editors have yet believed his line that if he had a book deal, there would be less advertising in this world.
Jason wasn’t quick enough to secure the .com version of his name, so he maintains a website at www.jasonstoddard.net. He lives in Newhall, CA with his wife Lisa, who writes romantica under the name Ashleigh Raine. They share the house with five turtles, three tortoises, and several cars in varying states of repair.
Mario D'Anna (Artist Guest of Honor)
Was born a leggless frog with a huge afro after being a victim of Doc Hopper ... Wait Wait .. He was
born 1/2 Scottish and 1/2 Italian and is the hybrid
"Skitallian" vs. Siciallish.

Kris Bauer (Fan Guest of Honor)
Kris Bauer has been a fan since early childhood when she discovered the wonderful world of fantasy and comic books. Her first science fiction book was "Brave New World," by Aldous Huxley. When that didn't scare her off and, several years later, at age 8, she discovered Arthur C. Clarke's "Childhood's End" (which had a distressing derth of children!), she was hooked. She wandered through the usual variety of Heinlein juveniles, a number of selections by Ray Bradbury, all the Andre Norten books she could get her hands on and quite a few tomes by Isaac Asimov before she cleared adolescence.
The late teens were spent devouring everything by ERB, as many of the Doc Savage books as she could find, Tolkien and a wide variety of everything else she could get her hands on as well as continuing her comic book (yeah, yeah, I know, *graphic novels*) collection. She has continued this practice (albiet, at a reduced rate due to the exigencies of day-to-day life) to this day.
In the early '80's she discovered gaming, the LASFS, fandom, conventions and filking; she has been a member of the LASFS for over 20 years now. She has also been volunteering and working at various fan-run conventions for more than 15 years and may eventually fail her sanity check and put a bid in to run one someday.
Other interests in her life include her daughter Valentina, her extended family, her friends, cats, Brother, a wide variety of other music, Mah Jongg, Live Journal, finding a job that pays a living wage, and finding a place to live.
