Man I wish I'd remembered about this! I think I read you mention it somewhere a while back and I was planning on buying a ticket to the Portland show but just completely forgot about it. Oh well. (Although I will be miffed if it was even half as good as Wootstock, which I will still aver is the best thing I've ever been to ever ever ever)

Coincidentally enough, I'm thinking about getting into Pokemon myself, at the age of 32. Even though the extent of my Pokemon knowledge is "you catch things" and "Pikachu". I was at GameStop today myself, although looking for a different game (Okamiden for DS, which they had but which was too pricey for me :( ) I should have seen if they had Black and/or White but I didn't even think about it.

I had a subscription to Highlights as well. Even as a kid (from about age 7 or so) I was already a budding astronomy geek so my favorite articles were on that subject. I distinctly remember one called "Mars: Now's The Time To See It" and I think one about supernovae? Also I remember being supremely disappointed that "Science Letters" wasn't in every issue.

AAAAH MY CHILDHOOOOOOOOD :D :D :D *flail flail flail* I watched all those Nickelodeon shows as a kid, except I was never really into Danger Mouse and I don't know what The Third Eye is/was. But ffffff Mr Wizard's World FRIG YES. I still remember how to tell salt from sugar without tasting it. (And that the kid from that experiment poured what fortunately turned out to be sugar into some Kool-Aid.) Also YCDTOTV, oh my god. Actually my little brother (who's about five years younger than me) and I were talking a few years ago about how awesome all the shows we grew up with in the '80s and early '90s were. I posted it on an old blog of mine and if it weren't too long I'd post it here too. (I can't just link to the entry, it's not a "blog site" like LJ or Blogger or whatever. But I could probably copypasta it into my LJ and link to it there.)

OMG POKER FACE XD I fully admit to dancing and singing along while watching the video. (I didn't get into Gaga until April of this year, but I was surprised as hell that I like her as much as I do. :p )

I can truly and honestly say that if you ever do this again in Portland, I will definitely be there. Like I said in a comment to your last entry, I haven't laughed that hard in I don't know how long. I blogged about it (DISCLAIMER, also reiterated many times in said blog entry: I wrote NOTHING down and it's all out of order and I skipped A LOT of stuff) in my LJ as well, http://mystical-chickn.livejournal.com/355221.html. I am slightly miffed, however, that I took like 60+ pics before my camera's batteries died, and of those 60+ pics, around FIVE came out not blurry. >:/

Looks the same to me too, at least with regards to the shape and size of the o (oh) versus the 0 (zero), but upon very close inspection, in "w00tstock" the 00s (zeroes) are like one pixel farther apart than the oo's (ohs) in "wootstock".

In lieu of making a new post I'll just reply to my previous one. Anyway that was friggin' awesome. I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard at anything. Except I wish I'd said something when I met you, but my brain always goes into Dug from Up mode whenever I meet anyone even remotely famous ("I have seen you on TV/heard your music and I like you!"), and I didn't think you'd want to hear about the first time I saw Stand By Me when I was nine and was Completely Freaked Out by the train bridge scene (you know the one). :p Oh! Also I took many pictures, at least until my camera's batteries died in the middle of Adam Savage's set (what the everloving hell, batteries, I just charged you that morning). Will probably upload them to Flickr later today, might update again with a link.

I'm glad I read this, I'm coming to the Portland show and I was wondering about the camera thing. Charging my digital camera's batteries as we speak. Or type. Whichever. Sadly I did not have the chance to get any of your books prior to this (read: I procrastinated) so I will most likely have nothing to sign (oh wait, I do have a DVD of Stand By Me...). Maybe I'll just bring my spiral drawing pad or something...
