The cool thing was that Steve Jackson was there to speak. He's responsible for Car Wars, Ogre, Illuminati, the GURPs system, and a whole lot of other cool stuff. He also, it turns out, looks like Steven King. A LOT. My copy of the Principia Discordia is one that Steve Jackson Games put out. Anyhow, the subject line above is something he said when he was talking about game balance, specifically in Illuminati. The really funny thing about the meeting was that there were a handful of really attractive girls there, and you could almost sense the awkwardness as they walked by. Occasionally, Steve Jackson would make some comment about how everyone was a geek, and you could hear the loud, derisive girl laughter cut through the room.
Luckily, since I'm Captain Suave and not a geek in any way, I was unaffected.
So next up was my novelty music show.
The relationship edition of Nummy Muffin Cocoa Butter flew by really quickly- I guess because there are just a ton of songs about love, breaking up, stalking, etc, etc... It went well, and we got a few requests. Thanks to everyone who called.
Next week is interim, so there may not be a show. I'll let you know.
