What can I say? I had a simply amazing time at PAX. I opened Saturday night’s concert by playing a set to an audience of thousands of people (which I’ve never done before). It was quite a rush – I’ve never seen a wider sea of cell phones and Nintendo DSes and light sabers, and the sound of several thousand screaming zombies truly is a little frightening. And there was a tender moment with a robotic boom camera that I will always be grateful for.
As proof, I can offer you these artifacts:
1) an interview I did with Ben of Gaming Nexus on Saturday afternoon, on which page you’ll also find a picture of me towering over…well, my pants.
2) this YouTube video of Re: Your Brains which gives you some idea what I was up against.
3) this flickr photoset from Chris Maloney, with a lot of great shots of me looking awesome.
Many thanks to Mike and Jerry and Robert and Amber and Jillian and Matt and Jennifer and all the rest of the people who invited me there and got me out the other side.
Now I’m in Ocean City, NJ perfecting my skimboarding technique, but don’t forget: Friday, the Birchmere in Alexandria, VA with Paul and Storm, and then this weekend is Bumbershoot in Seattle. Will I ever stop rocking? The answer is no.
