You are a good guy Yots.  Not a lot of those left.

I think we all are. I'm not kidding when I say I'd really love for Steve to make it out. I think he needs a kind of joy and camaraderie in his life.

I think you should go Howard.  Yots and I have been around BYOAC since somewhere around 2009/2010, but you've been around way longer.  I'm sure there's plenty of stories to tell in person which the BYOAC ZapCon bros would like to hear.  I agree about Steve too, he'd probably be surprised by the warm welcome he'd get.  Ehhh, I can make no comment at this stage about my own attendance, not trying to be secretive or anything but I just don't know.  Unlike the year I did go, money is very tight right now.

Hey Neph, you should use that beer money and drive down, we can carpool the rest.

I would enjoy meeting you Howard, awkward or not if anything we can fanboi out on Ninty stuff together (one thing we share in common, I admit). I enjoy our debates here on the forum, I don't think I've thrown that much shade your way. At least nothing too malignant.

As for Ark, I call BS that he's gone to ZapCon before. He's just talking wind right now.

I'll be there, just not with the gang.  I will take them to CAX instead.  Who has been here the longest?  Probably Chadtower.

If I had only one wish, it would be for three more wishes.

Sorry I got the thread side-tracked.  It was probably a long shot that I would have got to go anyway, but it might be best if I don't attend.  I seem to bring out the worst in people anymore for whatever reason and I'm just tired of fighting.

I also bring out the worst in people Howard.  You and I should go and we'll sit in the corner throwing shade around while occasionally taking a break to throw down on some arcade action.

All that went towards beers for members who attended Zapcon this year. I wasn't there, but the beers were.

I'd like to make a couple corrections to my statement, meeting you *would* be fun!

And there's also a few other regulars here I'd like to meet and chat with as well.

Howard... We've butt heads several times, had different views on topics.  But you've always been civil, intelligent, and explained your side of things.  I'd love to meet ya in person sometime.  Hell, I'd enjoy meeting X2 and everybody... except Kaneda.

So, first of all, Kaneda was behind the whole "If Chinese Democracy is released, you get a free Dr. Pepper" so he's done more for me than 90% of this forum.

Marketing dude that staged some kind of "super geek" apartment complete with a tacky pedestal cabinet that got a lot of online coverage.  People got butthurt because they thought he reflected poorly on them.  Why any of them thought that was really his home is beyond me.

Then there was some drama between him and some KLOVer over a Donkey Kong coin door or some ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.  I thumbed through a thread and sighed and got on with life.





This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

Well that might be part of it, but it more him stealing from people on pinside that made me hate him.

Way to undersimplify it, James. If I recall, most of the Kanada drama occurred during your exile in Tibet.

Well, what I read was kind of ambiguous over who was being unreasonable, and I immediately lost interest.  I'll defer to your learned opinion on the matter.

What a trainwreck of a thread....

Dont get me wrong.  I have disagreed with people on this forum as many of us have.  But it takes a special kind of tool bag when everyone has an immediate distaste for you as everyone seems to have with Kaneda.

Eh the only two people that have ever truly gotten on my nerves are ark and X2.  Both are still alright in my book.... we just don't get along is all.  I'd still hug both awkwardly if I met them.  :)

I think I was gone during the Kaneda thing.  I remember the article about is bedroom, remembered he kind of came off as a --cream-filled twinkie-- in it and that was about it.

What pisses me off about Kaneda is that he's the worst kind of contributer to an online forum.

He posts just to be worshipped, and if he isn't he blames the critique until the crowd agrees with the critic and then leaves if he can't spin himself back to being worshipped.

Had a good chat with a member last night about a cool idea. If it comes to fruition, you old-timers definitely want to be there.

I *could* be fun?  Dude, I'm Mr. Fun.   :'(
I'd like to make a couple corrections to my statement, meeting you *would* be fun!

And there's also a few other regulars here I'd like to meet and chat with as well.

So you're 99.9% coming, right?

That chuffs me to no end.
I'm in like Flynn.  And not the the chance kind.

Plus, I'm not going to hide incognito like some other coward members starting with an A and ending with an R.
