MAGFEST HYPE HYPE HYPE ~ Jan 5th-8th 2017
« on: January 02, 2017, 08:33:06 PM »
AHHHHH 3 DAYS AWAY

For the 4th year running I'll be cosplaying as someone who knows how to play clarinet with EVEN MORE members of my nerd orchestra in attendance.  And this year I'm going to print out the part of the website saying only DJ setups had to be in the taped off lines in case the ~MAGPOLICE~ get uppity again.

ALL THE MUSIC AWW YE
Who else is gonna be there?

Magfest bestfest, as always.  Be wary of light snow on Thursday, though.

I am cosplaying like 3 things because apparently this is the only good time of year for this sort of thing for me.

David Wise will be there! Grab your DKC cartridge for fresh delicious autographs!

This is like the 3rd year in a row that exactly 4 music groups are going that have piqued my interest. They are also pretty evenly distributed over the 3 days of concerts.

If an Initial D Arcade Stage 8 is going to be there, I'mma roll some heads. If only Stage 7 is going to be there, I'mma be the one to get rolled.

~MAGPOLICE~

Yo sis I'm on groupie duty lemme know when you need some assistisisstance or someone to reserve some jam space before other yolos show up.

UPDATE: that key change is wtf hard (or I'm bad, well maybe it's both) so oops I might only be playing the first part and people might just have to deal with it  :V

Lobbums installed her new music program on like Monday afternoon and has already fashioned 2.5 songs out of the ether though really 2 will be used and that's still crazy.

Tried to get my Initial D Arcade Stage chops up with a friend one last time and had an epiphany over just how technique-based this game is. If you handle the corners on Irohazaka one way as opposed to another the difference in your time over the entire race is almost 10 seconds. That's a whole lot during a race.

Today was a great magfest day.  I saw a cool concert, I hung out with a bunch of cool people.  Classic magfest really.

MAGFest still best fest. The weekend was more or less about a handful of different stories:

For cons and stuff you really need to have a thorough look at the schedule to make the most of your weekend. I missed a few panels and all of MAGUnderground because I didn't look this stuff up.

Lobby and Triangles only had so much time for toots but I got to play groupie anyway.

There was so much Initial D going on and I stomped on newbies and then got stomped on myself by people with way more experience than me. The tourney had a slew of good people in it. The only picture I took all weekend was of a red Toyota FRS, which is the car I use most of the time in 8th stage.

The console room featured Contra, Link to the Past, and Super Mario World. I haven't played these games in a decade or more but I'm still good at them. How? Also Typing of the Dead is silly but the game basically told me to my face that having fingers is a privilege and mine should be revoked.

Metal Slug 5 is OK and 6 is CRAAAAAAAAP go play the other ones.

I put 3 months into Wizard Tiz and it came out kinda crap. Then I found out that I seriously need to up my wig game because the wig started to crush my skull and I dunno how to loosen the damn things. Meanwhile, I had two conversations with people over Dancer Bartz, a 5 week slapdash project. :V

The dealers' room had plenty of great stuff but I am now 32 and a semi-mature adult. 10 years ago I would have thrown all of my money out the window for this stuff and this year I couldn't be bothered to get anything beyond a polo shirt I can wear into work.

Good show! I'm quite proud. Even my speed-limit-ignoring lead foot hasn't been that quick in recent years.

Oh right! Terribly sorry about the seeming-urgency of my relayed message. I thought I had gotten that information to you previously, but I guess I fucked up and forgot. :V

Would it be possible to let me know by next weekend? I'd like to have a final count by then so I can move forward.

Can do, but as of right now without talking to MJP it's leaning towards no because it's a bit of a convoluted drive/timing coming from the opposite direction as the rest of you kiddos
(and I'll be in Massachuchu at least twice before then!)

You forgot to mention the consistently elevated BAL or is that just a given at this point?

On a related note, Bit Brigade was fantastic as usual. Arc Impulse was a nice surprise. The other concerts I went to were good but were either lacking something or just didn't play enough stuff that I could take an interest in. Sure there was a lot of music talent on stage but what does that amount to when my unrefined ears are involved?

That's just a daily routine, magfest or no :V
