In all seriousness, that was the most fun I’ve had since Zapcon.  A very, very undeserved warm welcome from Phoenix collectors and I hope to see everyone again in April 2020.  Starfighter is an incredible arcade.

Those guys in AZ are the real deal.

I am heading west in December to wreck Arroyo's birthday.

I am extending my trip so I can spend one night in Phoenix to hang out with Yots, TTC, and company.

Make sure you bring the hand lotion. The circle can get kind of intense!!

BYOAC Soul Brother #2 SFII Arcade1Up PMed me and said he he’s sorry he couldn’t make the PBJ lovefest, but he was busy putting an uppity cousin in its place that thought it was a real Star Wars cab and not a child’s plaything. He said he’ll be down for Mike’s trip.

Also, plan is to hit up Cobra Bar at 4ish this afternoon.

And now I’m safely back in Houston after one hell of a trip to Phoenix.

A few highlghts....



Outdoor arcade games at Cobra Bar.



Member Jawyn



Never say no to bar tamales.  Ever.  At the Film Bar.



Custom side art at Cobra.



The three Elvira’s at Starfighter. 



The Witching Hour at Crescent Ballroom.  Actually a good turnout and I think I finally got enough dark wave in one evening.



Met a wizard on the train to the airport, he told me he’s the last member of the kingdom of Israel.  So he’s got that going for him, which is nice.

Thanks, Phoenix, it was fun.

What a trip!! Pbj was giving me the play-by-play, probably to make me jealous. Which he succeeded! I really wish I could have made it out to AZ and join in on this.
Nice trip, pbj!  :cheers:

This is what the hobby is supposed to be about. People getting out and living life. You goblins huddled around your soldering irons and PC screens need to get your ass to Zapcon, or the MGC, or my place. I hear Opt will let anyone crash at his place uninvited as long as you bring your zipper mask.

Some people thought so due to this solar eclipse in Qatar but all I see in this eclipse is the shape of a bikini holding up some beautiful breasts.  Boobiapocalypse.

Ha you have no idea how much I dislike that song.  I'm in a group that does Christmas lighting with software I help write and half the folks were doing that song for their displays and posting the videos.
