I love the Power Glove. It's so bad.

So who else went to see The Wizard? That was a ton of fun. Goddamn, we're such a bunch of huge fucking nerds.

There were some great crowd comments. I love how everyone booed like mad when that creepy "runaway finder" guy showed up on screen.

    I loved the cheering when they did the montage of NES games as that Nintendo help line guy gave them secrets. It was also pretty funny how many more comments I got on the Powerglove I wore after the Wizard than before.

    That was you? Dude, you rock almost as much as the guy who was playing his Virtual Boy outside the console room.

    Remember when they made off with Jimmy and that guy yelled "KHAAAAAN!"? That was awesome.

    That other guy is my hero! Next year I'm bringing a Gameboy printer and camera to take his picture. I hope someone posts a picture of me, though, because my friend with the camera apparently didn't manage to take a single pic of the glove.

    The Wizard was about as much fun as I had at PAX -- between that and the Minibosses, I have never been so psyched with so many awesome nerds.

    To whoever shouted "SLUT" at the end of The Wizard. That was frickin' funny!

    So many good comments during the movie, or else it might've been boring.

    Ha HA. God, that was all great. I was the guy who yelled out 'All aboard the mantrain' during the scene with the father and the older brother in the hotel room.

    Also, 'trucker rush kekeke'.

    You really should've just gone all out and gotten the red letter jacket with the N on it and a NES controller belt buckle. I've already started savin my cash for my surprise costume next year. I'll just say that you'll notice me, especially when I play DDR for my first time up there. I'm purposely not going to play it any so I can suck as bad as possible realistically.

    Yeah, The Geek was just WAITING to yell "KHAAAAAN!". It was funny then, but imagine playing games with him, or having a radio show with him, and he says it ALL THE TIME.



    Oh, how I hate him.

    We need to come up with a list of scripted shouts and actions for The Wizard like they do for Rocky Horror. We can pass it out at next year's PAX.

    That one made me laugh pretty hard, they all did actually, especially the crowd comments during the Pong Match.

    "LAG!"
    "Down Down Up Up Left Right"

    And of course Gabe's comment

    "This is the most exciting moment of my life....sorry hunnie"

    and in regards to the wizard, well, i was in the theatre through the whole movie.

    after about halfway through, though, let's just say, i moved onto bigger and better things.
