Newgrounds UK Meet

2009-01-28 18:17:31 by mike

What an amazing time!

The London meet easily took the Newgrounds community to the next level. There were NG users as far as I could see in every direction. Seriously, just look at everyone! It was totally humbling and inspiring to be surrounded by so many awesome people.

It was my first time out of the US, so I did manage to do a bunch of touristy stuff. What really blew me away about London was the architecture. There are tons of ridiculously old buildings, and you really don't see that in the States. The best part is the contrast between these ancient structures and the funny looking modern buildings, like "The Leaning Tower of Pizzas" and this very phallic tower.

Some brief highlights:

- Watching the Eagles game with Bob, Tim, Poozy, and Swain
- Weebl's surprise appearance
- Tom breakdancing
- Apologies to Kirk-Cocaine, whose pint I lost, and Evildog, who was the target of my unbridled rage :)
- A rapping hobo
- Shalashaska, the skeletal gimp

Check out Luis's page for some nice memories. It really was a pleasure to meet all of you, and I hope we can meet again sometime!

Well, I'm glad to hear it all went well over there.

I love you Mikey.

First time out of the US? I think we'll have to break that mould again, particularly if you make it over to Amsterdam (not convinced I'm going to go yet, but we'll see.)

Apologies for repeatedly calling you "Mikey." In my defense, I'd had a few to drink before I even caught up with you guys.

One day, I'll go to one of these meets. I'll just have to save up money to do so.

Sounded like it was fun...


2009-01-28 21:46:17

I wish I coulda come. Darn, apparently I missed a lot.


2009-01-28 22:34:18

You were the first person I noticed.

But also, I see the letters 'eum'. As in 'museum'. That sounds kinda lame, so please explain.

Getting tanked with you and the guys while watching the Eagles rally in London was a fucking blast man. Good times with good people....

Too damn bad the Eagles lost.

This is the reason why they lost btw: 022206

I know this is old news, but you really shouldn't apologize to Kirk. He was wasted so he probably threw it at a hooker or something. He was kinda weirdly hostile about it. Kirk, if you're reading this.. I'm not sorry :3
