Vegas, baby!

Even though hellbob won't be able to join me - :( - I'm going out to Vegas in August! I'll be going for the New Media Expo. I'll be doing the free Exhibit Hall and Keynotes Only registration. Since I don't actually do any podcasting, it would be silly to do the full conference registration at $349!
It's gonna be so cool to meet all these people that I know just through podcasts and the internets!
If any of you on my flist are going to be there *looks towards Phoenix* be sure to let me know so we can meet!

But the BEST part of this trip?
The Coverville 500 Concert!
I'll finally meet Brian Ibbott in person after 3 years of email correspondence & keeping his song database for him. The concert he's going to have was the deciding factor in me going out there.
To celebrate episode 500 of Coverville he's hosting a concert of some of the favorite artists who have been played on his show: Richard Cheese, Jonathan Coulton, and Chance. Also, there will be a singer named Natalie Gelman who I haven't really heard. w00t! You know I loves me some JoCo. And Chance does the most awesome cover of Kelis' Milkshake ever!
If you are going to the NME and want to go to the concert, tickets will go on sale on June 1st. It's at a venue down by the MGM, so it's an easy monorail ride down from the Hilton. Only $20!

That's why you should just do the parties & stuff with me! :)
I'm going super cheap on this trip. I'm using my timeshare points for the plane ticket so it will be less than $100 cash. I'm staying at my timeshare so that's basically free. I'm getting the free expo pass. I'm on the guest list for the Coverville concert so I don't even have to shell out the $20 for that. Basically I'll just have to pay for my food, drinks, and either a rental car or cabs. Oh yeah, and the hookers & blow!

I would totally be game, and could just drive up there. It's not that far from here at all. I must figure out all my financials you know, see if I can afford the all important hookers and blow. :-)

That's old news! I heard about it last Wednesday. :)
"MESSAGE FROM JAMES
James is happy to announce that he will be starring in the forthcoming ITV/History Channel/ProSieben movie “Moonshot.”
“Moonshot” is a dramatization of the days leading up to the Apollo 11 launch to the moon. James will portray American astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

*smooch*
I was thinking of you earlier today when someone on my flist was asking if Black Books was good. :)
It's too bad you guys had to pick this weekend to go galavanting off to Hawaii. :( We're gonna be soooooo close to Chicago...........

I know, it's a real pain in the arse. We may manage a Minneapolis trip this year, though.

I don't know anything about Coverville but Vegas in August? Cool! And I have now actually heard Richard Cheese which amuses me.

Yes! Come to Vegas! I can book a 2 bedroom unit instead of a 1 bedroom!

That looks awesome!

As an aside, are you coming tomorrow night? Are you staying at the HOJO's East? If so, we will be having our rehearsal dinner there tomorrow night, and so we'll be hanging out in that room from about 8:30 to midnight, on the second floor in the Maple Room. All friends who are in town are welcome to come hang out with us after our dinner is done :)

Looking forward to seeing yoU!

I'm sure we will have the time AND the inclination! (Unless the band Sunspot is playing somewhere in town, but there's nothing on their site, and if they were Rick wouldn't be going with me.)
