STL WoK Signing Pics and Video
« on: September 02, 2010, 03:02:44 PM »
Here's all the pics I took at the signing yesterday, for those interested.

I'll be posting up 1st part of the Q&A later tonight, as soon as I can split the video (i uploaded to youtube last night, but its apparently too long, so i have to split it after work tonight)

Unfortunately, i didnt get the second part of the Q&A on film, my battery ran out just as it started. Which kinda sucks, too, considering i thought all the best questions came out in that one.

Disclaimer: Pics may contain 'rongal and his girlfriend. Viewer discretion is advised.

Edit:

Videos are now live of the first Q&A
Part 1
Part 2

Cool pics. I'm jealous since there isn't a Vegas signing again this year. :(
Now you've got all the ones with beards on one side and all the
moustaches on the other.

Hey!  You were behind me in line at the happy sugar vending area!  You were with the girl with the cute hair and glasses!  Wish I'd known it was you guys, I don't get to meet too many other fantasy geeks in real life.  It's like they're all undercover or something  :P

The Q & A was lovely!  Glad you got some of it.  Some of us were 'tards and didn't bring our vid cams.  Brandon was awesome, so down to earth and polite.  Lots of good questions answered!  But dang that RAFOing... then again, what he does and does not RAFO gives a little bit of an answer.  At least you know it's going to be important so you're in the right ballpark  :)

I presume you mean her?

Yup,  I was the guy with her, she's my girlfriend. I'm the dude in the blue shirt.

Also: the person behind you in line, eh? Were you the person i was speaking with briefly concerning root beer and madness? :P

Edit: that's an awesome title for something. "Root beer and madness", starring Keanu reeves as the stoner, carrot top as that annoying guy, and guest starring jean claude van damme

Thanks for the pics.   :)

So what's with the box of Macaroni and Cheese at the signing table?   :D

Um, are you being serious?

If you are being serious, I didn't see him bring the box at TGS signing. Although I might have missed it.

Yes. Signings are serious business.

No, no. You misunderstood. Miyabi is Brandon's pet box of macaroni and cheese. All of the forum posts we see? They're probably Brandon going incognito. How else would he know so much about the books before anyone else?

I support this theory. With every fiber of my being.

Yeah, I've noticed that you never see Miyabi and EUOL post at the same time. Coincidence? I think not.

moustaches on the other.

Some day, Brandon will be really hungry, and we'll never see Miyabi again. T_T

Wonder what sort of metallurgical abilities he would provide. An increase in font color perhaps.

No, that is what I was assuming you meant, it was some sort of 'pet' box, good luck charm, etc.  But I am just saying I did not see him bring it along with him at the TGS signing he had in my area. But, as I said, I guess I could have missed it. Will look for it at his Chicago signing this next Thursday.

Sometimes he doesn't take him out of his bag if he's in a hurry, but if you ask him if you can see Miyabi, I'm sure he'll pull him out for you.

Maybe that's what turned part of my signature red. I eat an awful lot of mac'n'cheese. Some of it was probably related to Miyabi.
