Really wish I could've been there!
this may be of some local interest
I apologize for posting this so late. I meant to do it earlier, but my 2 year old daughter decided to do a swan dive off of the couch and break her arm. First haircut and first broken bone in the same day, not bad.
Big thanks to Heiko for manning one of my cameras and taking the majority of the photos below. Enjoy!
Brian had to sign his name well over 400 times yesterday. This photo was approximately number 50. He was very excited!
Tacopants was in the house..He shot this photo.
Really wish I could've been there!
The photos that I am in go towards evidence that I am not exceedingly photogenic, but nonetheless, these are awesome photos. For as long as I was able to stay, I had a blast.
none of the ones with me in them were printable! that or they'd already reached the bearded-white-dude quotient for the photoset.
With a look of stern disapproval on my face, for some reason. I don't exactly know why, but everyone here tends to have weird photo moments.
there were GIRLS there??? How did they find out?
I think they were trying to shop but got caught up in the release party, girls don't exist on the internet
so we could hit a brewery or two afterwards. She's the one working on the sucker (needed video instead of a still shot for that).
She's awesome as hell and still looks great at 50. I'm pretty sure we were the oldest attendees.
Yeah, whoever the girl is in the first pic of the post, what's up? hahah.
Let's figure out a tailgate event or something.
Spoken of for years...never effected.
I would tailgate with the blogosphere but it seem that everyone has their tailgate and is somewhat reticent to give that up for a week.
Maybe if it was for a specific game like STAEE this year...
So. much. facial hair.
Yeah, I had no idea Ace had a beard.
That's the first thing that I noticed too. Second was that American men dress like children.
And the place wasn't air conditioned. It's amazing you didn't see us all passed out.
It doesn't matter if it's 5 or 95 or if you're going to work or the beach, Korean men wear suits, especially black suits. I don't take it that far but I do usually go with business casual when taking out the trash. Wearing a t-shirt in public would be like going outside without pants (which most of you also seem cool with). I guess it's just strange to suddenly realize that I'm probably the only person here who doesn't own any Michigan apparel and that if I ever returned to the town in which I was born and raised, I would feel out of place.
Between mgovideo, living overseas, and always dressing up, I'm picturing you as Kim Dotcom.
LOL new user name in effect until I sober up.
Who is this guy? Easily the money shot of the day.
I'm pretty sure that guy has some sort of mental handicap and/or had brain surgery. At least that's my guess by the scar on the back of his head. You might want to tread lightly...
that's just a picture of a girl with nothing around her, right?
(or other form of significant other?)
I realized just how drastically low my michigan apparel was saturday when I realized that A.) I only have two michigan t-shirts any more and B.) both were dirty.... hence the Che Guevera shirt (communist revolutionaries love michigan football)....
I have a lot of michigan hoodies and coats, winter stuff, but not enough summer stuff... time to go shopping!
ps. I wish I could go outside without pants on but sadly no one wants to see that so I am 'oppressed' into wearing pants every day...
communist revolutionaries love michigan football
Steve Szabo is not so sure.
Do you think he really reads the 'Daily worker' before practice every day? I sure hope so. lol.
good pull Thorin
I like to think of my self as some sort of modern member of the brotherhood, hence 'we are the dead'.
sidenote: I read 1984 at least once a year and consider it the most important book ever written (import due to both it's prophecy and the real wisdom/understanding of what power is)
You are not the only one. Men's fashion in America is pretty deplorable...children indeed!
Congratulations to Brian and the rest of the staff. A great accomplishment.
Wished I could have been there, sorry to the OP and his daughters arm.
BTW, when is Brian's first haircut?
for the next Photoshopping thread; now I have new ammunition!
But seriously, I wish I could've made it to the release party. Great work by everyone involved with the magazine.
... it sounds like a computer is talking to me.
No photobombs? Is Brian wearing red? I'm confused!
Wish I could have been there, looks like y'all had fun.
Brian has never worn red.
Who are you going to believe: me or those lying eyes of yours?
Am i the only one trying to figure out who is who in the pictures? Not real names but their MgoBlog persona's. It would be way cool if the pics had captions like "Section 1 explains his Free Press theroy to OMG Shirtless while RDT-WIAG listen in".
Yeah. I agree that it looks like Igor = The Man, but who is Igor? (Existentialism aside.)
well to start, he's my father. (for real)
Second, he's an immigrant from the Soviet Union who adopted michigan football to replace soccer, his first fanatical love.
He's also crazy, prefers to pace around the house watching parts of the game on 3 different TVs when things are going well, and following the game on the internet when things are going bad. He kicks my mother out of the house during games because she's bad luck.
And he hatest Michigan State with every fiber in his body even though my sister went there.
He's a Michigan Man.
I've sent so much money to the school for my son, I figured I might as well root for them. So he gets something out of it.
What about any of that is "crazy"?
Wait, do you mean to tell me that pacing around in front of a TV for four hours and then not letting my wife watch the last play of the Sugar Bowl b/c she hadn't been in the room before and might "jinx it" was somehow a crazy thing to do? Now whose talkin' crazy!?
Wait. Brian's a lefty?!
i announced that saturday in the HTTV thread. how dare you comment without having read all of my contributions!?
But I feel like I was well represented-- I counted at least 4 of my shirts just in a brief scan of the album.
Who's that wearing my Chuck "Shadow Heisman" design? FWIW I'm wearing the same tee as I type this!
I was going to buy one of the shirts earlier this week at UGP, but all of the t-shirts are $19.95 there. What gives?!
and I love that shirt. but I didn't make the party
Pretty sure that was Seth.
But Seth had it on in the pics. There were other shirts, as you say. Was surprised/happy to see they weren't all just the "mascot" shirt masterpiece.
..sopogon, talking to someone who I need to email back today so thanks for the reminder.
(I'm, like, wearing a nametag in the photo!)
And that's my favorite shirt! Brian gave me crap for being the guy in the band who wears the band t-shirt to the show. I said if we're trying to sell t-shirts, why wouldn't we have the best-looking person modeling it?
Even though that's obviously you in the picture, and you have a nametag on and everything,
I still read your post in whatever voice a hardhat would have.
