Back from the con!
Man oh man did I have a blast. :D It was craziness and I can’t even think about how brilliant it was to finally meet the Marble Hornets guys. ^^ Went to their Q&A and the late-night pajama party/live commentary, and took some pictures (though I didn’t get one withthe guys, alas, social awkwardness) and have some video and asked them a question, and it was lovely. AND ALSO I rode in an elevator with luipaardjack and documentaryonhotels and it was awesome (though at the time I wasn’t sure it was them and I was too nervous to be like “THEY SAID YOUR NAME AND IT SOUNDED KINDA FAMILIAR ARE YOU DOH” because I have a massive fear of coming across as a huge creeper, lol) and they were very nice and I spoke to them. ^^ So much awesomeness from the MH community.
Also met an actor from the Hunger Games, and that was BOSS. (The actor that played Thresh, specifically - Dayo Okeniyi.) He was such a chill guy and a lot of fun to listen and and generally be around. Got a picture with him. :D Now definitely going to read the books sooner rather than later. He’s got me pumped about them. (Also have to go out and buy the Blu-ray. May do that on the way home from work tomorrow, if I have the funds. And if my town hasn’t floated away in the storm.)
Drove home through the beginnings of the Frankenstorm - that was an adventure. Luckily, I was able to essentially ride the front of the storm all the way there. It wasn’t the best driving conditions, but it wasn’t ever loss-of-visibility horrible. Now I’m home and recooping and all that good stuff.
Still wishing I’d had a chance to talk to the MH guys again. Maybe some other time.
But I’m definitely pumped to get some plans in motion for my own series. I’ve got to make this happen. I’ve told Troy Wagner I’m working on it. I’m not allowed to back down now.
ANYWAY I HAVE TO PAY SOME BILLS AND BE A PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF SOCIETY so i’ll see y’all later
