    He won't be because getting to Atlanta from Seattle in less than a week would be ridiculous but FEAR NOT because you'll get to see a few Ectomobiles in attendance including Boomer's step-sister-Ecto the Ecto-1G driven by Chase Ambrose of the Georgia Ghostbusters!

    I won't be at the parade because I work but I'll be at the Mellow Mushroom on Ralph McGill Blvd downtown sometime after 7pm (likely 7:30ish) with the rest of the guys if you want to stop by wirehead26, or if you want to bring any of the other 25 wireheads with you. Come hang out with some ghostheads.

    I don't know if it's the Conventionist app creating such a drag on the network, but cell reception right now in Midtown Atlanta is fffffffffffffucked.

    We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds'.

    They've been working on the AT&T towers recently. If you're on that network you're boned in this city. Just mooch off of wifi where you can. A few places in town have a wandering wifi connection.

    We see the Ecto Response Vehicle everyday; it never ceases to make my son scream "Daddy! Its the Ghostbusters Jeep!".

    Though I had no idea they were Ghostbusters GA. Just figured it was a dude who liked the Ghostbusters.

    The new Knight Rider show was delightfully hokey.

    I think it was actually starting to come into its own when they ditched the giant CIA/FBI/whatever crew and then it was just a small group of people running the show, like how the original Knight Foundation used to be. Then it was cancelled. Not really a big surprise, though.

    That is absolutely the most dominant opinion of the show, that it hit it's stride in the second season and then was canned right away.

    So theres a guy down here In the Eugene area that drives a Jurrasic park Jeep #29. I thought it was yours at first so I had to come running to the thread to check.

    Not mine. I think his is #29?
    Yep, this is the one in Oregon.
    2qECX.jpg


    Also PAX RECAP!

    Earlier this summer TellTale Games was all like, "Hey we want to use your jeep to promote this Jurassic Park video game at PAX in Seattle."

    Last year they used a friends DeLorean at PAX, covering all costs and in addition to paying an amount that I won't disclose here. So I was all like "That sounds terrific! If you provide enclosed, insured shipping both ways, airfare, badges for the con, hotel, and per diem then you've got yourself a deal!"

    So they booked transport for my Jeep and we were on our way.

    The morning of the pickup I walked aaaaaaall the way around my Jeep and took quite a few picturesof the condition I gave it to them in. Like these:
    pgq89l.jpg

    8SkbCl.jpg

    Then I was off to meet the enclosed transport! Except the transport showed up and was not enclosed! I could have been a dick and said, "No dice, friends" and not given them the Jeep. But unfortunately I'm not a dick.

    The Jeep goes on it's way and I fly out a week later. The Jeep was delivered that morning and signed for by one TellTale's employees, a self-professed "person who doesn't know anything about cars and in fact does not even own a car!"

    Here's what I saw during my walkaround.
    9erp1l.jpg

    zbc4fl.jpg

    DH63dl.jpg

    Op4fXl.jpg

    gqadPl.jpg

    After the walkaround, and before the convention, I talk to the guys at TellTale. I tell them, "Look I could be "that guy" and throw a fit, threatening to take my Jeep out of here tonight unless you cut me a check right now, but I know this is a huge fucking weekend for you guys, that you need to promote your game and you've gone a ton of shit to worry about. So, we can but this on a back burner until the expo is over, but I'd like your word that you'll take care of this immediately afterwards." They were pretty appreciative, and even though I received no per diem or additional badges, I decided to not be a dick about things.

    Then the Jeep came home, I didn't hear from TellTale. A week later I reached out to them, and it was a few more days before they got back to me, telling me that I'd have to file a claim with the auto transport company (Advance Car Carrier Corp.). I told them that I did not arrange for the transportation, and that I should not have to be the middleman. They insist that they are not responsible for the damage in any way, and that only the car owner can file a claim.

    So I send all my claim information (scanned receipts and delivery invoices, before and after photos) to the car carrier, and they reply with:
    We have completed our assessment of the above loss and have determined that this is not car carrier damage. After carefully reviewing the damage pictures that you have sent to us, we found that all the damages was noted on the Bill of Lading before transporting your vehicle. Also please note that vehicle was inspected in rain and possible that not all the damages were visible. For that reason the box, where it says that vehicle going ASIS was marked.

    Enclosed with this letter is a copy of the Bill of Lading signed by "Serge" on August 30, 2011 in where was noted that vehicle had pre-existing damages before transporting from WA to CO.

    Now, the damage was done on the way TO Seattle, not FROM. And here's a photo of it "raining" while they loaded up my Jeep. Boy it sure is hard to see stuff with all that rain!

    So TellTale hired the sketchiest-possible carrier company, and then one of TellTale's employees(who admitted she doesn't know the first thing about cars) signed the bill of lading upon delivery without inspecting the Jeep for damage, thereby releasing the car carrier from responsibility.

    I'm disputing their decision, but I have the sinking feeling that I am going to be one of those cases that is just ignored until I go away. Bullshit man.


    I guess my lesson is "next time get stuff in writing and be a big dick."

    I met up with the transport near my work, I was a little dismayed to see that the transport was not covered, but if I didn't let them take it then we would not be able to arrange proper transport to get to Seattle in time.

    The following Thursday I flew out to Seattle arrived at the convention center to make sure the Jeep had made it. The Jeep had arrived earlier in the day, and a member of TellTale signed for it when taking the delivery. Unfortunately, the trip to Seattle was quite catastrophic and my paint job was toast. Here's what I saw during my walkaround.
    Spoiler:
    Hardly ideal:(

    So are they doing anything to make it right? Or are they just playing some "You should be happy we even deigned to talk to you in the first place" card?

    Aw man, that fucking sucks Boomer. I hope they make it right. I was super excited for Jurassic Park: The Game, but if they don't pay for a new paintjob, I don't think I'm going to buy it as much as it pains me to say it. It sounds like the shipping was insured, just not enclosed, so maybe you'll be able to get it repaired with that.

    Also, my friend in Colorado saw your jeep in Denver and sent me a pic. She was unfortunately unsurprised when I told her that I knew all about it.

    Anyway, keep being awesome, I hope you get the paint fixed for free. I guess it might be time to get it repainted the screen accurate '93 Sahara champagne?

    They'd best pay you back for the damage. I'd be content to boycott the game no-matter how much I'd like to see all the elaborate death animations.

    Thanks guys, it means a lot. My biggest disappointment is in thinking that the company would be at least appreciative enough to go, "You know what, this is really unfortunate, thanks for not being a huge ass, we're going to make it right."

    Some things are a bit too much to ask for. I'm certainly hesitant about buying their games now, too.
