Wizard World was probably the most fun I've had in a long while.
It started with me getting off at work Wednesday at 5:30pm. I had a lot of things to do before 36Holla was to arrive at my house. Unfortunately, he got to my place 30 minutes before I got off work, so I had to do a few things and take him to a few places to get ready for next days trip. We stayed out in our pop up camper to wait for Jonas the next day.
Jonas got to our place sometime before noon, and we headed out on our 7+ hour trip. When we got there, we met a lot of awesome people. Since there are so many people to name, I won't list everyone that I saw. However, I got to meet up with a lot of the staff, and a lot of newgrounds regulars and famous people (Famous in terms of newgrounds, at least :p).
Wizard World was better than I thought. I came to help at the booth, and was expecting the rest of the place to be a major nerd fest. Surprisingly, to me at least, the place wasn't that nerdy. Sure there were a few of the stereotypical nerds i was expecting (like fat black spiderman), but they weren't high in the numbers.
Ugh, I hate listing names, because I KNOW i'm going to forget people. If I do, I'm sorry. I got to hang around with Egoraptor and TomaMoto and Jonas took many gay and possibly blackmail worthy pictures of us on a massive sumo bean bag. (I straightened it out by laying down with a few hot chicks at the other booth :3). We met with a cool user named Timmy, as well as met with a fellow moderator Absent. HappyHarry was an awesome dude, being very mellow and down to earth even though his animating skills are insane. I also got to meet with Nathan, who's a good friend of many of the staff, and was filming a documentary. GOOD LUCK MAN!
I got to meet up with fellow Ohioan afro-ninja again, and it's always a pleasure. I finally got to meet the-swain in person, and he's a great guy to be around. So many whacky and funny characters at this convention... God it's hard to concentrate and organize on just one of the many happy times I had with everyone.
liljim was everything I thought he'd be and more. When I heard he was going to be there, I smiled big. He has helped me and has given me so much advice online it's insane. He was that same guy I met online, just in person this time, and still just as awesome, if not more. I was also able to get some one on one time with Luis. We stayed at the hotel and talked awhile, and then we had some kickass food at the Hard Rock Cafe. Secretly, I love and TRY to get one on one time with everyone, and I did with almost everyone. Luis was fun to talk with, and he let me ramble on and on and on about my theories and speculations of human psych and communication. (also sorry about eating those 5 pieces so slow, lol).
I got to sit and talk with Stamper and JohnnyUtah at a bar. I think they were alright with my Stamper 'n Johnny submission I made... and did the voices for stamper...
Ok, I'm going to stop there because this is becoming all fucked up because I suck at typing my thoughts on something. I'm much better doing it in person. But i really really need to give a shout out to Stamper. I broke off from the Newgrounds group on Friday, and was dropped off at the wrong hotel location at around 2:30am. I roamed Philly alone and drunk for 2 hours. I got to the hotel (and security was nice enough to let me in) and took me to my room (I was sober by then, lol). I tried sleeping on the hard floor, but it wasn't working. I have a hard time sleeping when i'm excited about an event or being around cool people. At around 6am, my angel STAMPER is hovering over me, with pillow and blanket in hand. He throws them down to me, covers me up with a blanket, and I swear and I'm pretty sure I got my ass spanked.
Thank you, you're a fuckin' angel BABEH ;3
PS: If I forgot to mention you, blame the time I'm writing this and the fact that I suck at userpage posting.
