      So I'm Featured User, for the second time!

      Now I get to thank @Desayjin and @SailorTweek for taking a joke I made and making it reality and @dooby2016 fr bringing it t my attention.

      I also get to thank @SailorGirl81 for my spiffy new avatar that she painted for me, which I am smitten with.

      Also if you're gonna be at Let's Play Live in Newark at NJPAC on April 24th, look for me, I'll be there hanging out.

      In these uncertain times, remember, you can always rely on your friendly neighborhood spidertroll!

      So I was outside watching the snow fall and a co-worker with whom I am friendly walked up to me and said, "Oh that looks cool" and whipped out his phone to record the snow softly falling on the ground.  He proceeded to walk forward, looking at his phone screen instead of his surroundings and started to cross the road which typically isn't busy.

      It just so happens though that there was a big yellow school bus backing up as he was walking and I could tell that if neither changed their pace that they would collide.  My first instinct, rather than warn my friend that he was about to get hit by a bus, was to pull out my phone so that I could capture video of my friend getting hit by a bus...

      WTF is wrong with me?!?

      The market has recovered, no one is beating minorities, women & LBGTs in the streets, no one is rousting immigrants from their beds for deportation and no foreign countries have declared war on us.

      The end of the world hasn't happened just because the Cubs won the Series and the Donald won the White House.

      Take a breath, smoke some grass, eat some rads, do whatever you need to do and get a hold of yourself.

      Life will continue.


      P.S. If you're looking for blame, remember that it was the Obama Supporters in Michigan and PA who voted for Trump...

      THANKS OBAMA!

      I don't plan on writing a novel, but I'm also going to just go until I'm done:

      Tuesday, T -3 Days

      Checked into the hotel, took my roommates to track down Old Man Fuerstenhoppy.
      Met up outside CU 29 just before the storm hit and taste tested some Ghost Chili Vodka where we got invited to come back for a "gang bang" by the cute bartender.

      Then met up with a mix of the RTNY and Tech crew at the Elephant Room. Some lady met her husband, dollars were signed and affixed to the ceiling, Irish exits were had, gave a bum $20 for directions, everyone thought I was dead.


      Wednesday T -2 Days

      Met up with the Tech crew, got our stuff unpacked, tried downloading games and updating consoles scratching our heads as to why it was taking forever... two words Network Loop

      All those poor packets just wanted to go home... Disappeared for Team Lead pizza party, everyone thought I was dead.

      Buffalo Billiards had Strongbow.



      Thursday T -1 Day

      Pretty sure Adam set a record for number of Amazon Now deliveries within a 24 hour period. He'll be giving out USB extenders as lanyards next year, he bought out the entire stock within a 20 mile radius. Things started coming together. Iron Works BBQ for lunch, very happy tummy.

      I stayed until about 9pm in the convention center setting up capture stations and was one of the last ones out, everyone thought I was dead.

      Buffalo Billiards still had Strongbow.


      Friday, Day 1


      Audio sync issues all day. Four year old external capture devices didn't like us.

      Needed to jump in the pool before I met up with everyone, they thought I was dead.

      Buffalo Billiards still had Strongbow.


      Saturday, Day 2

      Razer Ripsaw to the rescue. Audio problems fixed.

      Got myself some Easy Tiger pastrami and Austin East cider, met some folks from RT Pittsburg who'll probably never want to see us again because we were even more loud and obnoxious than usual. My roomies peaced out early and I got home super late, they thought I was dead.


      Sunday, Day 3

      Easy peezy all day until close. The Ficus was triumphed over, monitors were stolen, network switched were purged, pallets were wrapped, hugs were given, goodbyes were said, pallets were unwrapped, monitors were returned, pallets were re-wrapped and drinking began.

      Billiards ran out of Strongbow before I even got there. There was a helluva lot of Fireball flowing around. Where's Me? I dunno, everyone thought I was dead.


      Monday, Independence Aftermath

      Hangovers were strong, Casino el Camino for bloody mary's and giant burgers, then the Tiger for some shandy's & cider to wash it down and finished the morning off with some JimJim's italian ices, (I refuse to call it "water ice" that's dumb and redundant).

      Went to the rooftop pool, snuck some people in, pulled some evasive maneuvers on a 70 year old pink bikini wearing panther, snuck some more people in, ordered home slice and snagged a couple of half cases of beer, watched the fireworks, closed out the pool and gave the leftover beer to some bums.

      I hit the bed hard... I thought I was dead.


      All in all, best RTX yet.

      I'm not sure it can be defined in abstract terms or even in concrete ones but more so by a combination of the two such as:

      The realization that from time to time scrubbing poop out from under your toenails is now a part of your life, and accepting that fact without anger or contempt...

      Blutonian Tech Guardian

      Happy birthday to two of my favorite fellow Guardians, @Pyromasso who I've had the honor to work closely with since 2012 and will be doing so again this year, and @1TinSoldier whom I've had the privilege of trolling since 2013.

      Also a happy belated birthday to one of my favorite McDowell's @sirNARVY working for you each year since 2012 has been an absolute pleasure and I'll keep doing it as long as I am able!

      Knowing all three of you has made this world a brighter place and I can't wait to see you all again in July!

      There are many like it, but this one is mine!


      I also got to try on a new belt...

      As I trekked home in the below freezing temperatures of the Northeast US this evening with a windchill in the single digits, the thought that five months from now i'll be bitching about the triple digit heat in Texas at RTX kept me going!

        Been busy as hell. Working at a college means August and September are crunch time for us.

        I'll be hitting up NYCC for sure though. Will you be there?

      hmmm haha yeah I just wish others had or would read the comment.... Then perhaps there could be a "Get Geoff Back on the Podcast Revolution" . . . but alas you so far are only one who has even messaged me about it....... Sad day...

      I wonder if there is anything else to be done to draw attention to it....

        Actually, it was such a talked about issue at RTX, that Burnie actually had to come out and say at one of the panels that his new plan was to talk trash about Geoff until he had no choice but to come on the podcast to defend himself!

        You're absolutely right, and I'm sorry for upsetting you and putting my foot in my mouth. There are much better ways for me to make a joke to convey my point and I'm kicking myself for that now.

        Was it? I mean I think I understand that you were trying to make a joke but the problem is, it was directed at me. Any Soldier, Airman, Marine, Sailor, and Coastie would have reacted the same. Just the way it is.
