Pleased to Meet Me

Even though it's still a week away and I'm not exactly, y'know, involved in the festival, Nerdapalooza has taken up the bulk of my focus and energy of late. Still, I'm hoping to hatch a least a couple more posts – specifically a new podcast and an album review – before I begin my long trek down Orlando-way next Friday.

But before I tend to those tasks, I find myself in need of your input, faithful readers.

At Nerdapalooza 2009 there was a special, informal event known as the Hipster, please! Meet-and-Greet. Yes, I am well aware that I didn't attend Nerdapalooza 2009, let alone my own meet-and-greet, but that's neither here nor there.

My question is simple; would those of you in attendance like to do something like this again this year?

Let me be straight with you: this isn't at all about meeting me. That shit is laughable. Rather, it's just about tying in with some folks before the event to hang out, introduce ourselves and maybe make some new friends.

Because of this year's extended performance schedule – 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM both days – finding a time to meet-up before the day's events is a bit of a daunting task, but if those of you in and around the Orlando Airport Marriott are interested, I am more than willing to get up a little early so we can convene and shoot the proverbial shit.

If any of you folks are down, just leave a comment and we'll hash out the details. And if not? Well then I'll just see you inside. :)

Let's face it, Seattleites, after this weekend's rousing Independence Day festivities, you have absolutely nothing going on. By now you've had a couple days to sober up, to recuperate, to tend to your various firework-related wounds, and now you're back on the prowl for quality entertainment.

In that case, this is your lucky night!

This very evening, Tuesday 6th, big things are going down at The Rendezvous, where SUCK Films is commemorating their 3rd anniversary by hosting a night of nerdcore hip-hop. Show up at 7:00 PM to view your requisite shitty movie, and then hang around for amazing follow-up performances from Sea-town heavy-hitters Beefy, Billy the Fridge and Death*Star. This also marks the stage debut of my main medic Captain Spalding, so please give him some extra love.

Cap's gonna be celebrating the release of his new album Manual Override and Billy will have his newly revealed Lusty Lady memorial tees in stock, so be sure to bring ample scratch for the merch table.

And pick up an extra of each for your old pal Z! ;)
