What reason could a person possibly have for having to go to California, when they could be in Wisconsin enjoying an awesome time? QUICK! Make up an excuse and get out it, hurry!

I've been watching the progess of the Bill Paxton Pinball on youtube and I must say that Ben looks more and more like a mad scientist each day. I have a feeling someone might get their brain removed for testing at MGC if we are not careful.

I thought they just had "Pax West" in September and everyone got sick lol.

"Confirmed" cases of "H1N1" at PAX: 1
"Confirmed" cases of "H1N1" at MGC: 0 ;)

PAX West is the original PAX. It takes place in Seattle in the late summer/early fall. PAX East is going to be a new event this year, and one I can actually make it to instead of going out to the Mid(dle of nowhere)west. ;)

I dunno, there's never been one before. The only way you could find out would be to go. :P

Oh. That makes sense why nothing came up.
I should go to that, even though it is probably of equal distance to MGC.

MGC 2010 is indeed at the Sheraton, which is in range of the Milwaukee airport shuttle.

So I've got about 6 months to finish Bill Paxton Pinball - considering the progress since July, I think that's doable.

New videos on YouTube!

Well I'm looking forward to another year of hanging out with you guys, checking out the show and of coarse Ben's awesome presentations. Money at the moment looks tight but I'm hoping to pull a rabbit out of my hat by March.

Also I'm driving from Southeastern Michigan. If anyone is along the way (namely close to I-94) I could see about picking you up.

EDIT: I may be able to go. A friend from highschool is getting married in Cali, but to get me and my wife and kid would be hideously expensive. This guy is like a brother to me, but I didn't get to go to my brothers wedding. Theres hope! I live in MN and thats like 5 hours away from the expo!
