    I'm really hoping Robert can get Machinae Supremacy to come.

    Although I think it would be awesome if Incubus could be booked. Have them play a few of their better songs (Stellar, etc.), then went into their Halo-themed "Odyssey" songs.

    We could probably get Weird "Al" Yankovich to do some parodies of songs if we really tried.

    yes. i hope he doesn't forget about that. :| also... hmmm... I need to get some songs from Incubus(If you say something like "shame on you for not having some by now", i'll hit you with my big stick of doom.). :?

    Just out of morbid curiosity. How many people would be down for getting Weird Al as an act at PAX. I may be banned forever but I am a fan of his.

    DO NOT GO TO GAMEWORKS. They overcharge for ALL THEIR GAMES and half of them are poorly maintained. Gameworks is total shit. Just go to that one arcade near the Meydenbauer.

    I've got a 1993 Red Corsica LT, 6 cylinder. I'm think of getting something to put on the hood of it for Pax05. I don't want anything permanent, something like a bumper sticker that I can pull off the hood when PAX is done that won't rip up any paint. Basically, just a decal.

    I'm thinking of this image
    ffwallhoody.jpg
    It's the fruit fucker prime wallpaper

    Any other suggestions? I want it to be offensive and noticable. The very spirit of penny-arcade. But not anything that will get me pulled over by a cop. I live in ontario so I will have to cross the border with it.

    Note: I am hosting the image off of a geocities account so eventually the image will be dead because they will cut off my bandwidth.

    I think this is what you want. Vinyl hood wraps made from any digital file.

    But I bet it's expensive. Although it would look cool:

    (BTW, what color is your Corsica?)

    It's red. Is that a photoshopped image? The car is basically my car but has better looking paint on it. mmmmm...shiny

    That's an intresting link you put up. Though I am kind of suspicious about the @aol email address you need to use to send them the picture.

    I'd be down with it.....but that only makes me wonder how hard it would be to track him down. Besides, wouldn't that break the general theme of the musical guests?

    Aye..that would be rather swell. Victor Lucas is clearly the smart one of the pair.

    I'm meaning to go to Gameworks to check if they still have the awesome flight simulator thing that they had there a while ago. That's about all.

    The one in downtown Seattle. It had it a while ago...I doubt they still do though. It's a full pod thing. You get in, fly around, shoot things and it's moving all the while. Fun stuff.

    Will there be a list of the games for the next Omegathon? If there's going to be another one we can start practicing early.

    Is there any chance that the date for PAX could be set somwhere in the middle of July, or even late July? School, at least for me, starts in mid August, so if the date is not changed, I and most likely many other people will not be able to go due to school starting.
