Favorite PAX Moments.
Here are a few of my favorite moments from PAX 2009:
- To escape the crowds (and convention pricing) for our mid-day repast, we usually went down to Specialty's - home of the best cookies that can be bought in Seattle. One of the helpful employees recognized my t-shirt and said "Yay Zelda!". We then had a brief conversation on Zelda - how she was stuck, and had I played Twilight Princess? She may not have known that PAX was afoot just a few blocks to the east.
- During Jonathan Coulton's concert, the audience rickrolled Mr. Fancy Pants himself. During a pause, a dozen people near us started singing :
Never gonna give you upThe singing petered out about there, but the point was made. Turn-about is fair play, Mr. Fancy Pants. (If you plan to play a similar joke in the future, do be sure to hand out reference cards with printed lyrics to your co-conspirators.)
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around...
- Overheard at a handheld lounge:
What did you think of Paul and Storm?It's great to hear Paul and Storm getting the mad props that they deserve.
Awesome! I loved them!
I had no idea how awesome they were!
I bought tons of their stuff!
