Dante de San Jose

My name is Dominic Mendivil and this is where I post my music. Songs I wrote as mp3s, songs I like as videos, lyrics I write, and so on and so forth. My music is acoustic, melo-fi, and the project Dante de San Jose gets its name from my dog, whose legal name on his License is Sir Dante de San Jose. I thought it was cool, so I stole it from him.

Please, if you like what I do, "Like" the Facebook Page @ facebook.com/dantedesanjose

Book Burning Memorial
'In the center of Bebelplatz, a glass window showing rows and rows of empty bookshelves. The memorial commemorates the night in 1933 when 20,000 “anti-German” books were burned here under the instigation of Goebbels. There's a plaque nearby that says something like “Where they burn books, they will also burn humans in the end.” '

Interesting but rarely mentioned: most of the content burned that night came from the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft (institute for the science of sex) headed by Magnus Hirschfeld. The institute and Hirshfeld himself were some of the first to openly campaign for the right to have sex with someone of the same gender, the right to transition if you did not identify with your birth sex and for the general acceptance of queer people. The team had already performed the first SRS operations in Germany and in addition, the institute advocated sex education, contraception, the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, and women’s emancipation. Photographs of the night of the book burning are plastered across history books world wide, but the queer movement that was destroyed that night often goes unmentioned.

Fin.

Oh, I want so much to carry you away.
Off to foreign shores where we can’t pronounce the city names.
Find a bed to rest and a pillow on which our heads can lay.

But I don’t know just how much longer I can wait.
So much left to say, I simply can’t articulate.
I redefine my love with Lillies from the Garden State.

Oh, I want so much to carry you away.
But we’re bound to the tracks and tossed from the highest planes.
Without a home, we’re either parking lot dogs or alley cat strays.

But I don’t know just how much longer I can wait.
It’s growing in my chest, this feeling that I just can’t shake.
Questioning whether or not I’m aligned with my fate.

Oh, I want so much to carry you away.
Visit all the places that I’ve seen within my dreams.
As for now, I can’t afford it with my current pay.

But I don’t know just home much longer I can wait.
To cover how I feel, there’s all these pills that I must take.
I swallow the cap every time I self medicate.

Fin.

Anonymous said: You seem to really not like DashCon. Is it, like, the worst-of-the-worst con? (I really don't know, the only ones I properly know of are ones like SDCC and NYCC)

DashCon is a first-year fandom convention for Tumblr users. It is happening this weekend and turning into possibly the largest convention kerfuffle anyone has ever seen.

The list continues but so far it’s only the con’s second day and it is quite literally the most dramatic, hysterically cringe-worthy convention debacle I have ever seen unfold.

Adding some updates as of 7/12 at 7:35 PM EST:

  • The game room consists of some tables, one TV, and one gaming console. No, really, that’s it.
  • DashCon proves they have possibly the worst PR team ever when addressing the WTNV cancellation. Instead of clearly explaining the situation, they say they “don’t want to get into it,” and then offer compensation for those who bought advanced seating tickets for the Night Vale show. What’s the compensation? An extra hour playing in the ball pit (which is really just a slowly-deflating children’s pool with some balls in it). Oh, and if there’s room, you may get one of the first-come-first-serve spots at the Time Crash concert happening tonight. Huzzah!
  • Most panels are completely disorganized. The “Name That Anime” panel was even handing out hotel mints as prizes for correctly answering questions like “what’s the anime where they fight with clothes!!!”
  • This still needs verification, but supposedly there are minors being let into the 18+ panels (like “BDSM 101”), which DashCon could easily get sued for allowing. Not that they have the money for it.
  • It’s been pointed out that as a Marriott hotel, the Renaissance would have required them to submit their full reservation payment 5 days in advance of the event. Therefore it’s very, very likely that the “$17,000 fundraising” was a huge scam. Because DashCon would’ve had to pay that money 5 days before this weekend or the event wouldn’t even be happening in the first place.
  • Furthermore, someone attempted to debunk the letter that DashCon posted to prove that the hotel asked for money. Not all their points are valid (i.e. “RE:” is commonly used for “Regarding”, not just in response to previous communication, and idk but this dude doesn’t strike me as an expert on internal Marriott stationary), but frankly the letter looks sketchy if only because 17000% 99% of it is whited out. Is it real? Is it fake? We just don’t know.
  • There has been no confirmation that the money donated in cash and via PayPal last night ever made it to the hotel (if that was indeed where it was intended to go).
  • People are demanding full or at least partial refunds. Needs verification, but purportedly DashCon has a list at the con where you can sign your name and the amount you donated to be refunded later. Which sounds like a totally effective and not at all easily-abused system. [Verified: x]
  • Attendees are either in denial saying this is the best con ever or they’re crying and having panic attacks. Welcome to Tumblr.

And as a bonus: DashCon originally ran an IndieGoGo campaign last year to raise $5,000 to start their convention. They raised $4,000. The campaign ended in April 2013 and rewards have still not been sent out (which consisted of tea bags, a couple business cards with your Tumblr URL on them, and if you donated $500+, some knick-knacks from Etsy).

More updates, as of 7/13 at 3:59 AM:

As always, if you can confirm or deny anything in these masterposts with proper validation, it’s greatly appreciated! I originally did the first one just to answer an ask I got, but as it’s blown up I figured I’ll keep doing it, since I’m captivated by the whole mess anyways. :’D

I’m heading to sleep now but I’ll do another update tomorrow once I’ve caught up on anything else that happens tonight! Hopefully no one dies. I’m not sure how else this con could get any worse.

And one last thing, just to clarify: my heart goes out to all you guys who paid to attend what you thought would be a fun convention and instead got this trainwreck. Even if it turns out that the $17,000 fee wasn’t a scam, remember that it is absolutely unacceptable for a convention to operate this way. I’m so glad that many of you have been able to see the positive in a bad situation and still managed to make friends and have a good time - but don’t forget to stand up for yourselves, too. A convention should never extort money from its attendees for any reason. Again, it’s great that you still made some good memories, but good memories alone do not make a good convention. Make sure your feedback is heard, especially if you want to see this con (or any future Tumblr-oriented con) have any hope of success.

Good morning! Here we are, July 13th, the final day of DashCon. So far, this is what’s happened as of 11:46 AM:

  • Supposedly this Tumblr user posted a full version of the letter from the hotel to DashCon staff. However, it is not real. If you’ll notice, the original letter as the amount due written as “$20,000.00” whereas in this version it’s only “$20,000”. The formatting also does not line up correctly. (Too bad it isn’t real, though, that’d be a riot.)
  • Gingerhaze revealed that Doug Jones has already left the premises.
  • Another witness account describes how DashCon “collected money in a bag” during the $17,000 debacle. They also took names on an email list to issue WTNV refunds at a later date. Who wants to take bets that said refund never happens?
  • This video shows the moment when it was announced that WTNV left the convention.
  • DashCon is making news headlines.
  • Staff tries to start rumors that WTNV was paid and left anyways. No one believes it.
  • People are debating whether or not out-of-state businesses require an Illinois LLP to operate within Illinois, or if they only have to pay a $500 registration fee (which we have no confirmation of DashCon doing so). Would any lawyers care to confirm/deny?
  • The act of offering extra play time in the ball pit as compensation for the WTNV tickets could easily turn into another lawsuit, as they did not originally charge an entrance fee for the ball pit, therefore giving it no comparable monetary worth to compensate for the purchase of event tickets.
  • Attendees and staff are attempting to start the conspiracy theory that 4Chan ruined DashCon.
  • Like Gingerhaze and WTNV, the BakerStBabes are also being forced to pay their hotel fees because DashCon refuses to cover the costs as originally promised. Admins are refusing their calls. You can read more about their experience here.
  • The artist and vendor hall has essentially cleared out.
  • Please note that dashcon-staff is a fake Tumblr account.
  • Finally, here’s a video of a con admin describing his experience during the $17,000 fundraising events of Friday night.

Alright, guys. This is my last update to the masterpost. I’ll continue to post more coverage on my blog’s Dashcon tag as it happens, but this will be my last update for this compilation!

So, it’s Sunday evening, and DashCon has officially ended. Here’s how the kerfuffle concluded:

  • The DashCon Feedback Panel with the admin team left a lot to be desired in terms of PR. Several things were discussed, including the Night Vale payment issue, the method of paying the hotel on Friday night, and the fact that they made a down payment on DashCon 2015’s venue 6 months ago. Also, full weekend refunds? Not happening.
  • BakerStBabes threatened lawyers and got their room situation sorted out.
  • Guillermo Del Toro has reportedly been notified about the unlicensed showing of Pacific Rim at a convention, which occurred in a room of approximately 60 people.
  • CORRECTION: When the two staff members went on /cgl/ last night, it was not with the intention of defending DashCon. Says one: “We were sick of the way we’d been treated over the course of the convention and wanted to vent.” Said staff member has asked to remain anonymous, but I will be posting snippets from an interview with them later tonight.
  • More light has been shed regarding the "Tumblr University" partnership and a promo video that was originally shot for the con in its early stages, via someone who was directly involved at that point.
  • An anonymous 16-year-old contacted me to say she was able to sneak into the BDSM panel. In contrast, another 18+ panel assured me they were vigilantly carding the door. Any more firsthand accounts would be greatly appreciated.
  • Mentions of pick-pocketing on Saturday have surfaced.
  • A former committee member has provided further insight into the DashCon origin story and fundraising committees.
  • It’s been determined that it is fully legal for DashCon to operate within Illinois despite being a registered LLP in Ohio. Thanks, legal side of Tumblr! [More discussion: x]

Again, if you have any corrections or other information you’d like to provide, please feel free to submit it. Thanks so much to everyone who’s contributed and offered support for this resource; glad to hear people have found it helpful!

"Guillermo Del Toro has reportedly been notified about the unlicensed showing of Pacific Rim at a convention, which occurred in a room of approximately 60 people."
This lawsuit will be delicious when it happens
