    TFNation have announced the dates of their 2017 show along with the venue - the Hilton Birmingham Metropole (same as last year).

    TFNation 2017 is taking place over the weekend of 11-13 August 2017 - who is joining me there? I'll try and track a few more of you down this time!

    Just got my weekend ticket!
    PSA: If you're thinking of staying in the Premier Inn near the convention I'd advise against it unless you have a car. When I was there last time a road was closed and the alternative route to walk there wasn't very nice to say the least.

    I wonder what the exclusive is going to be like. I finally received my Scorpinator after Australia Post lost the first one. After reimbursement I FINALLY managed to get it. Hopefully this one will be just as bonkers.

    All booked, be nice to have a chill out weekend away from work, surrounded by robots. Just have to save up to buy more artwork again, the Alex Milne and Nick Roche work I picked up last time need company!

    It cost me 50 per night to stay at ibis last year which is cool but this year ive gone for the actual venue sick of schlepping across the monorail to and from the site. 60 per night isnt bad at all really plus breakfast.

    Oh Damn. wait, if they are here this year does that mean the convention may lose the side rooms?
