MAGFest 9 is gone - PMD sets in :(


Recommended Posts

Sam is such an amazing pianist. I almost didn't get to see him play, but right as I was leaving I passed him at the piano and convinced him to play some FF6 goodness. I called Alex Brandon and Dan Froelich over to watch as well, and they were as much in awe as the rest of us :)

I recommend headphones.

While I was kinda sad to not feel as social as I did last year, MAG was still more fun than a barrel full of nerds. (Or perhaps it WAS a barrel full of nerds? These things are so hard to tell.)

My highlights:

- Rob Steele/Animefreak stepping in last minute, giving D-Rux and I a place to stay for Thurs night!

- Hearing The Megas perform live, and singing along with "The Quick and the Blue" word-for-word

- Learning that Jimmy Hinson's true inspiration after all these years is none other than pop king Justin Bieber

- Hearing how DannyB gets PAID to make relatives drunk (for purely artistic purposes of course)

- Seeing THE Hikori Kikuta in person and listening to his awesomely new agey whale song. Also, the whole "leave your family" monologue! LOL

- Getting coerced into tipsiness by Katie, and subsequently shouting out "we're all just slightly-more-intelligent monkeys!"

- Watching DougUltima and Sambubula real-time collab on the ivories (while still tipsy)

- Being all "no way, that can't be what I think it is" when Arm Cannon started to play the Star Trek TNG theme!

- Dancing like a fool at Danimal's chiptune concert

- Hearing new music from The OneUps

- Geeking out playing Dominion and Magic The Gathering with fellow OCRers

- Meeting someone who had listened to my tiny ffradio.net internet radio station eons ago!

- Delicious Thai food, not once, but TWICE

The not so great:

- No Indian food

- Missing Rare Candy's performance

- Medley-out-the-arse DoD song falsely advertising ME2 content

see, i thought this was hilarious. best part of dod at mag every year is the one really random song with more games than it has instruments.

Now, I would've thought it hilarious too, except the Mass Effect series really gets to my inner sci-fi fanboy. Was waiting the whole song to see which melody was covered... yeah, even though it was so obviously a joke song.

I should've known!

Yeah, I thought it was an obvious joke. The last three (Mass Effect 2, Super Meat Boy, Return All Robots) were kind of a punchline to the long list. I'm glad they said all the names out loud so they sounded appropriately ridiculous :)

I'm allowed to share this on the condition that the files are properly tagged, hence the split files rather than the 'one chunk recordings' I've been posting all along.

Also, buy The OneUps 'Intergalactic Redux'. It's worth every penny.

Thanks Josh!

Also, COME ONE COME ALL. I have officially finished posting all of the keeper photos that I shot. Grand total is 509, out of a total of...just over 3,800. I invite any one, facebook friend or not, to view these public albums. I do hope you can all enjoy a picture or two.


If you were in a photo and desire to have a full resolution version, or you are one of the bands I shot and would like to have the high resolution set of what I shot from you, let me know and I'll do what I can.
