      Wouldn't it be funny if a bunch of pandas had a party and called it "Pandamonium"?

      It totally would.

    • First semester in the books

      7 years ago

      Steven

      Of my computer programming program at college. As some of you know, I already have a University degree in Criminology, but it wasn't getting me anywhere, as evidenced by my current job as a security guard. So I decided to do something I found more enjoyable, and more employable for that matter. It's actually crazy how much better this has been, and how much more I'm learning. There's even a co-op option after third semester, and you can bet your ass I'll be on that. I had a friend do that and he made over $4000 a month, and this is before graduating.

      So yeah, just wrote my last exam, and feeling good. Just thought I'd let you all know, seeing as how little I generally make journals about my real life happenings.

      Continuing from where we left off...

      Chapter 4: The Early Bird Makes the Strip

      Saturday morning, Juls and I do the seemingly impossible, and get up in time to get a spot in line for the 10:30 am make-a-strip panel, something I went to last year and loved. This year's was just as good, and was made better when Mike flat out refused someone's request to draw a pony. Well done sir, well done. Those guys are seriously hilarious, and if you ever go to a PAX (Prime or East) make it a point to go to one of their panels, either a Q & A or the Make-a-Strip.

      We do some more meandering around, getting pretty hungry, and find our way to the food court where we happen upon Lamchopz, Heather, Michael, Schraver, and Toku, so we ate lunch with them. Afterwards, Julia got some ice cream, but apparently everyone wanted a piece of the action:

      After lunch, we walked around some more and came across a booth selling wooden mustaches that you could chain to your shirt like a monocle. Definitely one of the best finds on the convention, and according to Julia, "the best $5 she ever spent". I would have responded, "well, the best $5 I ever spend was my first night with you." (ZING!) but I have too much class for that. Anyhow, here are some mustache pictures for your amusement:

      Chapter 5: Friendship is Magic

      Anyway, later that day around 4:30 was the Wizards of the Coast panel. Not that many people know, but I actually play Magic: the Gathering on a fairly regular basis, so this was pretty exciting for me because they were going to be discussing the new set they were releasing. There was even a big reveal of the next big set coming out in the fall and it made everyone go apeshit bananas, with some people even high fiving and hugging. Here is video evidence (jump to about the 56:30 mark)

      Chapter 6: There's an RT Party in my Mouth, and Everyone's Invited

      So the evening rolls around, Julia and I get all spiffed up, and we head to The Estate nightclub for the Rooster Teeth Party/Jeff Williams concert.The concert happened from approximately 7 to 9:30ish, though Jeff wanted to play and should've played as long as he wanted because he was incredible. He had a choir, a group of violinists, and an awesome band and played a bunch of amazing songs from the last two seasons of RvB that he produced the music for. Seriously, you're going to be blown away at RTX at the show he's gonna put on.

      We also managed to grab a quick bite in the nearby mall with Schraver. I had a rice bowl, and Julia got pizza. We then brought the ramaining half a pizza to Barbara who was starving and grateful.

      The place turned into an actual nightclub after the concert though, with a DJ and everything. Mega64 were the first ones to start tearing up the dance floor, and everyone else followed suit.There was also an upstairs only open to people on the VIP guestlist. Juls and I got on it due to Barb being the one in charge of it, so that was nice, as it also entitled us to open bar. Honestly though, the best part about the upstairs was that there was places to sit. There was no room downstairs because RT wasn't able to rent the whole place out, so there was a birthday party also going on taking up all the side seating areas. There was also an area where you could get your picture taken against a green screen. My current profile picture is one of those, but there are a few more. I'd post them but they're on Twitchs facebook page which I can't access at work, which is where I am now. So go check em out if you feel like it.

      Juls and I had many a drink, and eventually I started to feel pretty sick. The thing with me and drinks is that I start feeling sick before I get too drunk. In other words, I know when to stop. Unfortunately that night, we hadn't had that much to eat, and that combined with open bar meant that I went a bit past where I'd normally stop, and I informed Juls it was time to go. Fortunately it was around 2am and the party was finishing anyway.

      Catching a cab at the time when all the bars close is also no fun. It took us probably 10 minutes of searching, and some help from my friend Andrew who we happened to bump into (he had been at the Giant Bomb party) to finally find a cab. This guy was really nice and even had paper towels and plastic bags on hand just in case. And good thing too. Julia was too polite to mention it in her journal, but I puked. First time in my life I had even done it that due to alcohol. Despite all this though, it was a fantastic night, and we had opportunities to talk with a bunch of RT guys as well as the Mega64 guys who are seriously super awesome. Eventually though, we got back to the hotel and went to bed. The next morning would not be fun for either of us.

      Sunday and Monday to come!

      ...is what I WOULD be writing right now if the Sens game wasn't about to start. I might do it after. No promises. But it will be done. The best pictures are yet to come. Here is a preview:

    • This is my PAX journal: Part 1!

      7 years ago

      Steven

      Just so there's no confusion! But yes, I will now present my PAX journal in the form of a book.

      Prelude: Disaster Strikes!

      So our story begins BEFORE the event starts. Juls and I are looking through the newly released panel schedule and realize with horror that her plane doesn't arrive until 12:30, when the RT panel was at 1:00! That would be rather tight, and we couldn't bear to miss it, so Juls did everything she could and used her magic to get her flight changed to an earlier time. Disaster averted!

      Chapter 1: Enter the Dragon

      And by Dragon I mean our hotel, the Renaissance. We were staying with Barbara which saved us a pretty penny, but also came at the expense of a bed for us to both sleep in as the room had only a King bed. Since the three of us in a bed together would be awkward to say the least, we figured I'd sleep on the cot, and Julia would sleep in the bed with Barb. Though after dropping our bags off and heading to the convention center, we realized we forgot to order a cot to room. More on that to come.

      Chapter 2: People people everywhere, but not a drop to drink. Wait.

      We enter the convention hall and go check out the RT booth, thinking we had lots of time before the panel. It was around Noon at this point, and we were under the impression they'd be emptying the previous panel, the Penny Arcade Q & A, before the RT one. NOT SO! We were not, as Julia would say, best impressed. We found Schraver in line, and he said that everyone else as already inside at the PA panel so they'd be saving us seats. And they were, right near the front actually, so that was sweet. Even sweeter was that after the PA panel ended, we all bolted to the front and got front row seats. Exactly as planned. Thus, all was well, and the panel was hilarious, except for that Keith Apicary guy who danced around in his underwear and got subsequently kicked out of PAX.

      Then it was time for food! Our whole group, (I'd list names, but I'd forget people so I ain't gunna!) We walked around outside the convention center and came across a small convenience store/sandwich shop where we ate. I had hawaiian punch. Now, allow me for a second to go off on a mini tangent here. I bought a drink called "Hawaiian Punch" so I expected something magical and exotic. To my dismay, it turned out to just be fruit punch. You knew this already if you were American, but we don't have that where I live and as a Canadian, if a drink is fruit punch, it's fucking called fruit punch. Rawr. It was good at least, but I was still disappointed.

      Chapter 3: From Lurker to Leader: A Muzzle Tov Story

      After lunch, we dicked around on the expo floor, trying games left and right. Eventually, it came time for Barbara's panel "From Lurker to Leader: A Frags to Riches Story". Clever title. It was about going from a member of a community to a leader in it and featured a number of very passionate individuals. Barbara, to her credit did very well and handled any questions without difficulty. So proud smiley12.gif

      barbpanel.jpg

      After the panel, it was time for Toku's birthday dinner! We went a restaurant at the Marriott hotel near the Hynes center where PAX used to be held and it was delicious. We eventually retired to our room. Now is where the cot fun begins. So we ordered one to the room and it eventually arrived. This cot was the shittiest cot in all of cot-dom. Which is hilariously close to dot-com, but I digress. The wheels were falling off and the bars wouldn't bend properly to lay flat. It took me like 20 minutes to fix this thing so I could sleep on it. All was well in that regard. HOWEVER, this is not the end of the cot saga.

      So that was Friday. Pretty baller trip so far, and there would be another two days, plus Monday to come!

      Stay tuuuuned!

      when you go to TeamSpeak tonight (you DON'T want to miss it, Devon did last night and he was upset ), go to Open File Browser and download both "Story Time" and "Ebony" I recorded Glowden reading off horrible fan fics and short stories. Ebony is the one you want to listen to. We're gonna try and make it a podcast for almost every week, my ribs were hurting I was laughing so hard.

      The file is kinda big and it's 1 hour and 21 minutes long, but it's sooo worth it. Part 2 is tonight
