May 11, 2009

Posted by Melissa Anelli

We told you we weren’t done! We’re yet again thrilled to make a big LeakyCon announcement: Potter Puppet Pals, the geniuses behind The Mysterious Ticking Noise and other YouTube sensations, have been added to the Friday Night wizard rock show at LeakyCon 2009 (which again, is free with registration as is an unbelievable host of other events). Shows by the puppets are incredibly rare, making yet another special event for LeakyCon 2009.

Furthermore, the puppets will be on PotterCast LIVE this week, Thursday at 6:30 p.m. eastern in our Ustream channel! More to follow!

And now a bunch of helpful info!

Grab an envelope, a tube sock, a piggy bank...stuff it in your pillowcase or under your mattress, JUST SAVE IT. If you save just $10/week from now until July 2011, you'll have over $1000 US. That will pay for your registration and probably a good portion of your flight (if not the whole thing). Plan ahead. Plan accordingly. $10/wk will get you to Orlando!! Start saving this week, and experience the fun IRL next time around! :)Avatar Imagehannah abbot says: jealous.... oh so jealous of everyone going :(Avatar Imagekerosenestar says: That is so awesome!

I would be first in line for that!Avatar ImageBuffyXO says: I wonder if Niel will give us something new or an update to the musical that he did at a college a while ago.
