Was really hoping to go this year but due to the therapy company i've been working for getting bought out recently myself and the rest of the remaining staff all lost our vacation/sick time.  

Which sucks because I really would have loved having a chance to chat with Gareth Coker and see Jun Senoue play.  

Hope you all have fun!

Here's to hoping I've played enough Gundam Versus on PS4 to win a few matches this year......

Do you all ever get something happening together in the jam space? Considering bringing my horn again this year, but when I had in years past I found myself doing other things rather than just showing up at random.

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.

I'm going!

Marshall Art is performing on the main stage this year - we're doing an all-VGM set with a load of new material and some refreshed versions of our older covers (including two posted here on OCR ;)). We've also got a guest drummer, keyboardist, and second guitarist for this show. It's gonna be a fun set! We're up on Saturday at 5pm.

Haha that's awesome. The challenges (*RIP*) used to give me my yearly dose of humbling. At the end of every year I thought that surely I'd come back stronger and crush some of the new ones faster than I would have before... never happened XD

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. :)

I'm heading out there this year - first time in the States!  If you need another synther / fledgling drummer for the Friday Jamspace set, consider me game x)

It was much fun seeing everyone I was able to see!

Of course, that number was significantly lower than previous years, simply because of the hotel situation making everyone a lot more scattered.

@Liontamer & @Rexy:-D:-D:-D! Glad you're both coming this year!

...aaaaand I didn't see either of you at all.  Curse of having responsibilities at MAGFest, I guess. Glad I was able to at least see and chat with some of you folk, even if it was just a "hi, gotta run!" type thing. 

Thanks to everyone that came out to see Marshall Art on Saturday. For those that missed it, we played both "But You're Still Hungry" and an updated, chippy post rock version of "Meteorites and Rabbits" - it was fun to revisit my first ever ocremix after almost a full decade. The MAGFest media guys (including @Cyril the Wolf who was on stream audio duties during our set) did a killer job of documenting our show... flubs and all. Being an international band that only gets to rehearse together in the few days at MAGFest is super fun, y'all should try it some time. ;)

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.  8)
