DtoidMidwest is your #1 resource for NARP planning and general merrymaking in the Great Plains. What constitutes the Midwest, you ask? Well, for our purposes, we're including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, the Dakotas, Iowa, Indiana, Ohio, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma. We cast a pretty big net, I know. There's probably more to it than that, but we've never met anyone from anywhere else, so they might as well not exist.
Anyway, if you live near a corn field and want to meet some other Dtoiders, add DtoidMidwest to your friends list, join the Google group, check out our main Forum thread, and start talking to your fellow midwesterners! Rumor has it that we're actually the sexiest regional group, but don't tell DtoidSF. They get jealous.
Pic somewhat unrelated, but this festival happens in Michigan every year, and I've been listening to a lot of Deadmau5
So did you know that the Dtoid Midwest group is continuing to grow? If not, you should now because the previous sentence implied it heavily. Matter of fact, we are home to Destructoids very own front page contributor Daniel Starkey, who is currently trying to plan a couple events!
I hope one of those events is something like this.
The first bit of debauchery this fine sir would like to spawn is a December 31st gathering in Bricktown, OKC for beers, steaks, or whatever. By whatever, I of course mean ohjesusfuck what do you think, it's New Year's Eve with Dtoiders: you know how that will end. With awesome. In your pants. And maybe on your face.
A bit further into 2012, Mr. Starkleness would like to open his place up to a NARP. He resides near the University of Minnesota East bank campus. He was thinking the weekend of February 24-26th. There's not much for details about this NARP yet, so stay tuned here or to Daniel's blog for more information.
Who's going to PAX Prime? Is the Midwest going to rock some face and represent this year? I know Clownbaby is attending, and will be in possession of a certain suit that may or may not have mystical powers. I hope to see many of you wearing it. Let it envelope your very being.
I imagine that shortly after the Prime afterglow dies down we'll start planning our MAGFest agenda, so if you have any interest or ideas in that, say so. Always looking for fun ideas.
I still plan on doing Midwest interviews, but am looking for a way to make them a little different from our World Famous C-Blog Interviews. If you live in the Midwest and would be interested in this, send and email to JonBloodsprayATgmailDOTcom and let me know, I'd love to hear from all Midwesterners new and old!
I suppose that's it for now. Here is a random picture:
See you soon.
EDIT: Sooner than later, it would seem. In my excitement about all these Midwest happenings, my boner used the blood that should have been in my brain and killed part of my memory.
For the 2ND YEAR RUNNING, Destructoid will be represented in the PAX Omegathon by one of the Midwest's members! That's right, our very own Glitchy will be competing this year! Good luck to her, and may she avoid the final Z in Bananagrams. You go girl!
