Superfan Hangout Thread

Recommended Posts

Well, it's official. The 6th Hangout will be on Saturday at 10pm (my time), and these times for everyone else: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Space+Quest+Superfan+Hangout+%236+-+Music&iso=20121013T22&p1=69&ah=4 :)

 

Things we'll need for the Hangout: MP3's of our favorite Space Quest-themes. (You COULD also screen share a YouTube-video, if pressed. But let's try and be nice to the folks watching the stream.) When we start the Hangout, I think we should stick to music from the official games as much as possible, but we can derail into other areas as we wind down.

 

I figure we should each prepare at least 3 -- but no more than 5 -- of our favorite pieces from the original series. Also, while someone's playing a tune, it's good manners to let the tune finish and not interrupt more than the someone playing it. ;) Then, after we've talked about those, we can get into interesting fan covers or soundtracks for fan games.

 

Hope to see you. Raise of hands, how many are thinking of coming? And how many are bringing an instrument of sorts? ;)

I can't make it to this one, but are we still on for the 27th with the Two Guys?

 

The 27th is a definite go. Both The Pope and Mark Crowe are ready to boogie, and we're assuming Scott is, too, because Patrick will be right there, forcing his hand.

A friend of mine just scheduled their birthday party at 6PM EST on the same day as the Hangout, and invited me to it. Decisions!!!

 

Sorry for the double post; on a phone, but ... Sam, it's obvious! Hang out with us for a couple hours, then go to the party! :)

Hmmm, unless I can get Google hangouts working on my desktop, I'll have to use my laptop again. Which means that I won't be able to bring my guitar and I'll also have to bring along that high-pitched electronic whine you all loved so much from last time.

I've got about a million e-mails to respond to (and they keep coming in). If the user account resets peter off before then I might show up just to heckle whoever else comes.

Maybe we should just hold up the Hangout for this time. I'd love to do one, but I'm feeling a bit under the weather as well, and it doesn't look like anyone's gonna come. ;) Let's make the 27th Hangout... er, I mean, the Hangout on the 27th something extra special -- and pick up on the Music Hangout later on.

It just wasn't meant to be. It's still a good idea, though. Let's concentrate on getting next Saturday to turn out cool, though.

 

Any idea how many would like to show up? Remember, there's a 10 people limit on Hangouts; barring myself, Scott, Mark, The Pope and PCJ, that leaves just five slots. Unless Scott/Mark/Pope turn up as one guy. Can't imagine how that would work.

Backtracking to the last hangout, something I forgot to mention was that somebody (Troels, I think) mentioned Shadow of the Comet as having a particularly annoying and distasteful maze section. As soon as you mentioned that I got the idea to play its quasi-sequel Prisoner of Ice instead of Myst/Riven. Alas, I did not have it installed. I loved that game, though. Had some great scary moments, music, and story (did I mention it had time travel?).

 

Anyway...just felt like saying that 10:40 at night.

Just to make things clear: is the next Hangout going to be the one on the 27th, or is there one scheduled to be on the 20th as well? (whatever the case is, I'll definitely try to attend the Hangout on the 27th).
