On Friday, we showed up to MAGFest and wandered past the severely diminished registration line (by daily comparison). N1NJ4 immediately points out to me that he just saw brentalfloss go down the escalator. I book it like there’s no tomorrow, then have a leisurely ride down as I see him walking out of sight. Now, my first thought is, “Wow, holy shit, he’s got a pretty big head.” My second thought was, “Ah, he looks like he’s with his girlfriend and CK said everybody’s gonna contact him about interviews and he’s got everything under control.” So I didn’t jump off the side of the escalator and knock down thirty people and then hump brentalfloss’ leg, like I was considering.
And then we never saw him again.
Let that be a lesson to you: I do not make good decisions. Jumping, knocking, and humping is the proper procedure for any and all brentalfloss encounters in the future. Make a note of it.
This really double-sucks because he and Metroid Metal were the two people/groups thereof that I had wanted to see and interview during my time there the most. I bought both of their CDs ahead of time in case they didn’t have any on-hand for me to buy and get signed.
So I’m out some cash, too, I guess.
