Taking the Short (Party) Bus to Adepticon!

Okay folks, I'm packing up Not Brent and the both of us are hitching a ride to this year's Adepticon!

Yea, I'm excited.

Am I flying?  No.  Am I driving.  Some.

Am I hitching a ride on the Short (Party) Bus being driven up from Austin by a baker's dozen or so Flylords?  Hell yea!

How many Texans can fit in a rental vehicle?  Guess we'll find out!

I didn't think I'd get to attend this year, but thanks to persistent Flylords and a long-suffering wife I'm being kidnapped and forced to enjoy myself.  It's a tough life...

Anyway, I'll be taking my laptop and camera so I can bring you, Ye Ol' Blogosphere, what updates I can.  I know they'll be a ton of folks doing the same thing, so I'll try to keep an eye out for something unique to keep your interest.

Any requests?

The only tournament I'm guaranteed to get into is the Gladiator... wish me luck - and an enormous Khorne Daemon Lord...


(Unfortunately, I narrowly missed out on the opportunity to join Greg Spark's team when they were looking for a last-minute replacement.  Stupid spam filter... I'll admit, I cried a bit...)

What the fuck. Why would Team Toledo not extend an olive branch of teamsmanship to me?

Brent said...

Wow. Way to burst my already deflated bubble!

Da Warboss said...

As much as it pains me to say it...uggghhhh...'good luck'....

Brent said...

Thanks Warboss!

C'mon - how about a hug! We'll start there - no gropings...

Jawaballs said...

Ok, I'm jealous. You guys are gonna have a great time. Have fun!

Which weekend is this? What is your hotel room number? I have this fantasy of you breaking out your brushes and painting me.

Nice! Hey Brent, ask Minus67 about our great "business plan" involving booze, a bus, and rush hour traffic!

not greg spark's team but "the greg sparks Five" which doesn't include Greg Sparks. He is on "the Greg Sparks Five" as the other guy went silent for 48 hours and we were a bit jumpy after having a guy bail on us on monday

And thusly do Hugs and Gropings spread to an unsuspecting populace.....

You play nice now....

Have a good time Brent! Luck is secondary really. (Also an illusion of the brain)

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
