  1. Super MAGFest 2018

    Hoo boy. Sooo, yeah. This was not my best MAG. Definitely experienced some substantial personal Sturm und Drang that, along with just generally trying to help my lady acclimate to her first MAG, kept me from much of what I wanted to do. I'm pretty bummed I missed you guys entirely. But! Next year, my dudes. Next year. I will return, like MacArthur. Or Larry Oji. We'll hang.

    This is sad. Glad to have you, though!
  3. Super MAGFest 2018

    Oh man I remember the first year they introduced the challenges (M5? M6?) I walked up like yeah, surely I can win at least one of these. Lulz. There is no hard like old school hard. @jmr, that sounds lit! I'm doing Concert Security again this year, so hopefully I'll be there to help the show go well.
  4. Super MAGFest 2018

    Good luck with Gundam. Back when I used to actually play competitive games I would come to MAG partially to restore my humility. I'm pretty decent at Soul Calibur, for instance, and last year I did like a 20 win streak at the arcade on Soul Cal 2 before I got DEMOLISHED by the best Kilik player I have ever seen. Dude utterly destroyed me. It was beautiful. As to jamming, I'd love to do this, but I feel like there's always something going on in the jam space (and clinic space) except for maybe the wee hours of the morning.

  6. Parts in games so difficult they made you stop playing

    The Legend of Zelda: The Spirit Tracks final dungeon just wore me the F down. As some of y'all might know, I have a triforce tattooed on my spine. I'm pretty serial about my Zelda, and this is one of very few in the series I haven't completed. Just sooooo tediously difficult. One of the other Zeldas I didn't complete? 2. And it wasn't Shadow Link. It was the area leading up to the final Temple. You know the section on the overworld with the random encounters with super strong Lizalfos, the weird eyeball dudes that dropped fire, and the lava? Yeah, that. So !#%$ing frustrating. Ground me right down.
  7. MAGFest 2017 (see you next mission)

    Hey y'all! I'm gonna be there! What's on the docket this year? Late night PPR discussions in real life? Profanity-laced pancake breakfasts? Nuking forums for bad behavior? On the real though, when's the OCR workout? When's the OCU concert? When's the panelz? I probably could look all this up, but I'm lazy.
  8. MAGFest 2016 (Combat your Post-MAG Depression here)

    Grrr! I had like next to no chilling with OCR peeps time this year. What's the next east coast event, yo?
  9. MAGFest 2016 (Combat your Post-MAG Depression here)

    Checkout is at 10 actually and then I ride back to Raleigh, soI may not work out in the morning after all. Next MAGFest for sure, bros.
  10. MAGFest 2016 (Combat your Post-MAG Depression here)

    So, I showed up to work out at like 1045 or so, which is perhaps a little late given I said 10 haha. I met Jeremy (Taucer) on the way down but I don't think anyone else was still there. I'm working tomorrow morning until 1pm but how about we work out Sunday morning at 10? For real? I'll set an alarm and stuff. Let's bro it up. P.s. GroupMe isn't working for crap for me. Thus, forum posts.
  11. MAGFest 2016 (Combat your Post-MAG Depression here)

    @OA Sweet. I will see you around 10 or so tomorrow then, hopefully!

  13. MAGFest 2016 (Combat your Post-MAG Depression here)

    Hey guys, I'm here! I have seen a few OCR peeps I think, but have been working. When's the MAG workout, bros?
  14. Fit Club ahoy! Where men are bros and women are also bros!

    Sorry for the emotional turbulence, man, but considering that, still pretty manstrous (yeah I said it) progress overall. Those pullups are balls nasty and that OHP ain't no joke either. You'll get it this year!
  15. Request for permission to play your music

    ^It's actually a fairly simple process. Not easy, per se, but uncomplicated. All you really have to do is take the test from whomever you would like. I went through ACE, the American Council on Exercise. They are one of the most commonly recognized. While passing that is all you need to do to get the certification, the material covered is pretty effing expansive, so I would suggest to anyone interested to invest in as much of the learning aids as possible. Thanks everybody so far for the info/permission! The content policy does indeed seem to work fine and is very reasonable, thanks!
