Had a great time at SXSW 2012

 

 

  IGTM Indie Game The Movie The super excellent and brilliant James and Lisanne, Dir's of IGTM. After almost a year of corresponding about the film finally got to see it at the Alamo Drafthouse and then went for beers with them after the film – just a stupendously great day all-round. Then, as if the day couldn't get better, James and I met Shaun Inman, this awesomely talented designer who's done some cool game related projects and that turned into a great dinner. Good times.

IGTM Indie Game The Movie The super excellent and brilliant James and Lisanne, Dir’s of IGTM. After almost a year of corresponding with them over email about the film finally got to see it at the Alamo Drafthouse and then went for beers with them after the Q+A – blown away by the film and their niceness/smartness and just a stupendously great day all-round. Then, as if the day couldn’t get better, James and I met Shaun Inman, this awesomely talented designer who’s done some cool game related projects and then all this transformered into a great dinner. Goooooood times.

had some hilarious run-ins with living legend Jim Guthrie, easily one of the coolest living creatures in the universe. Here, in classic nice-guy Jim form he's graciously fulfilling an autograph request from a fan.

super interesting panel on something something indie games something, James and Lisanne from IGTM, the shockingly erudite and entertaining Adam Saltzman of Canabalt fame, Phil Fish of Canceling Fez II fame, and the awesome Wiley Wiggins who was also a really nice and intimidatingly interesting guy to chat with

Had a meeting with TIFF International Film Programmer Jane Schoettle while in Austin, saw this hilarious fancy cowboy boot display in the swank hotel. FWIW, a 10' tall and ankle-length fur-coat wearing Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins walked in and sat down next to us w/his entourage. 14yr old me would have been super stoked, 31 yr old me was just like "holy shit billy corgan is stupid tall".

succumbing to fanboyness, I have to admit that the Joss Whedon in conversation with BLEW MY MIND, came away suuuuper inspired for reals.
