Michael: there are so many times where Jack is like, “Hideo [Kojima] is coming, stop! Stop!” Gavin: I have a video of you, Jack, where you just nailed the full circle, and then you just– [stumbles back] Michael: Gavin, Gavin, you play Jack, I play Hideo.
Holy shit guys, I went to Let’s Play Live last night, and oh my god it was the best thing ever. Despite all the screaming of the other fans, it was a great show. Jack is a great host, and I loved the whole experience of watching these people who I have admired from a screen be there, up on stage, doing things that I love to see them do. In addition, I never thought I would be able to say this, but I got bench-pressed by none other than Bruce Greene of Funhaus. That is certainly something I didn’t think I would cross off my bucket list, but there you go. And in true New Jersey style, the show ended with everyone jamming out to Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” on Rock Band, with our favorite Jersey boy, Michael Jones, on the vocals.
I got to meet Funhaus and Achievement Hunter after the show as well, and they are the sweetest people ever. In talking to everyone, it’s apparent that they care about their fans. No matter what you wanted, whether it be a hug or a picture or an autograph, they were willing to talk to you and accommodate you. My favorite thing was that while I was in line for Geoff Ramsey to sign my stuff, security was telling everyone that time was up, and I let out a disappointed “oh no”. But Geoff walked over to me and asked what I wanted (a picture and an autograph), and gave me it, despite the fact that time was up. My interactions with these people has increased my respect for them more, and I can’t wait to see where their channels will take them.
Summary: the show was great, I had fun, was bench-pressed by Bruce Greene, met the sweetest people ever, feel free to ask any questions about what happened, I’ll do my best to answer.
I don’t know why, but every time I picture a rivalry AU between Fakehaus and FAHC I always see them all trying to become secret friends with each other and hoping Geoff and Bruce don’t find out only for them to discover that Geoff and Bruce have secretly been having lunch for years.
