PAX East 2011 3-day passes have long sold out, but the awesome folks at Ska Studios had five to give out to some lucky Dtoid readers. All you had to do to enter was tell Ska Studios how you would thank the team for the passes.
To Ska Studios:
I would not only personally thank, and bow to them for allowing me to attend my first convention, but also wear a top hat, monocle, and suit during the convention and utilize my most suave voice to ensorcell nearby PAX goers to look at Ska Studios' booth. I would be willing to do this all three days during PAX East. Help me become the gentleman I wish I were. (All clothes are provided by myself)
Thank you, Ska Studios, for this opportunity.
I would create an 18 x 24 inch oil painting based on characters from their game/s, framed, and covered with a sheet of silk. The painting would be unveiled/presented to the developers on behalf of those in support of indy developers everywhere (i'll work that into a short speech, somehow).
I'd be more than down to get borderline alcohol poisoning with any of these people. Then dress up as The Dishwasher and carry around a cardboard katana throughout pax and lounge very erotically around all of the booths and ask people if they've seen that punk ass, motherfucking cyborg so I can slap that bitch silly.
I would then hug everyone of them and try not to throw up the aforementioned imbibed substances and tell them that, simply, they had made me a very happy krogan for three days. I may or may not be intoxicated writing this right now:)
I would craft a Hamza voodoo doll and present it to the Ska Studios staff. That way, if they ever got a bad review from Destructoid, they can work their frustration out in a manner that is only damaging to Hamza himself. Also, I understand that you cannot be prosecuted for the effects of a curse.
All I need is some of Hamza's hair and/or nail clippings, and I'm good to go.
While we're at it, I'd like some of Jim Sterling's hair and/or nail clippings. That, however, is a personal matter.
The Character: Sarah King. Young nerdling, and generally enthusiastic.
The accomplice: Jamie Bal. Young nerdling and generally a Bad Planner.
The Set up: A while ago, My friend Jamie told me about this Convention right in town, PAX East. Cool beans. Especially since she explains that her friends (already signed up) will be taking a friend with her. And this man sounds like my soul mate. Doesn't matter whether this goes anywhere or not, we just HAVE to meet. Unfortunately Lady Jamie, the bad of planning, forgot to say that passes sell out.
The Proposition: If you give me a pass for PAX East, I will bring a dozen roses to this event. I shall arrange to meet this man in front of the SKA studios booth. I shall get down on one knee then, present him the roses, and proclaim how he is my soul mate and how we should definitely chill together. I shall do this in a top hat. As Jamie and her friend Hannah throw sparkles and glitter around we shall have a moment.... and I will give all the credit to SKA studios. Proclaiming after that everyone should come over and praise the mighty SKA studios.
Second Proposition: But what about Jamie? You see, she needs to be there in order to set up this meeting, or else things get awkward. Tentacle Awkward. N00b tube Awkward. If you give HER a pass, she will be able to see HER band soulmate, JOCO. Along with assisting me in completing my vast plan of sparkles and glory, she will take a moment and provide some soundtrack for the event. JOCO songs of course. Also she shall make all the SKA studios booth people crowns. Mighty paper emperor crowns. Each one themed after a JOCO song.
Please help two lowely nerds meet their own and onlyies.
Update:: Oh hey! See my post from earlier? Yeah, turns out that Jamie was able to do some INSANE planning, and scored a three day pass for herself! 8D Meaning I don't need to win one for her too, just need one now to make this epic plan work! (Jamie is still willing to participate in the sparkle throwing and crown making though)
