Link.

All I can say is, oh god yes. These are some awesome choices, and I'm happy to see some more variety than the usual nerdcore / cover set.

Toss the NESkimos, MC Chris, and Frontalot on that pile and I'd be in heaven.

    Awesome.

    Didn't know if they'd wait until later to reveal that they would be playing or not.

    Can we get the chemicals in. 'Cause anything's better than this.

    I'm sure they intended to, but that's how you learn what Apple has learned the hard way: The only way to keep a secret is to not tell anybody.

    This makes that 40$ prereg all the more sweet. I wonder If they might have to cap pre-reg this year.

    WTH?! Why didn't Kasson tell me about this? I was just on the phone with him a couple days ago and he knows I'm into PA. Well its just one more reason I've got to go now. Maybe I can head out there with them.

    Yeah, keeping the secret has been killing me, too.

    Well, it's at a much bigger venue this year, so they probably wont.

    HOLY SHIT!

    Jonathan fucking Coulton is playing?

    I've always toyed with the idea of going cross-country to PAX but... shit, now I might have to fucking do it.

    I like that "might". It's as if you're reserving some small hope that you won't be drawn into this maelstrom of awesome, clinging to that one rock of hope. I wish you the best of luck.

    Yeah I've been investigating that. Definitely a great idea, looks very well-thought-out. I just have to get as many of my summer ducks in a row as I can quick, hopefully before preregistration ends.

    As somebody that was already a fan, let me reiterate my manly and unrequited love for Jonathan Coulton, now that I've discovered "Re: Your Brains"

    August can't come soon enough.

    Edit: Beautiful.

    How about MF Doom, he's been doing plugs for Adult Swim for some time now. And his stuff is really good if you ask me.

    I went to see Jonathan Coulton about a week ago at the Tractor Tavern here in Seattle; he has a fun live show.

    He did say that the crowd there was the largest he'd played for (~175 people or so), so I have a feeling we'll blow him away at PAX.

    I'd still love to see The Black Mages but that may have to wait till a PAX a year or two from now...I'm still hoping ^_^.

    Crazy.

    Freezepop! That's awesome. I need to get their albums, I've only really heard the two songs from the Guitar Hero games.

    Hopefully they're playing for sure.
