Vegas Baby!

If the Ivory Tower is the brain of the board, and the Transformers discussion is its heart, then General Discussions is the waste disposal pipe. Or kidney. Or something suitably pulpy and soft, like 4 week old bananas.

Sorry to say that it's just Sun-Tues so I won't be there for a full few days of debauchery, but there's a lot of me going out of town in May.

Sorry to announce that I wont be able to make this :(

I start a new job on 1st June and need to relocate 300 miles from where I currently live.

Absolutely gutted because events like this rarely happen.

I hope you all have an incredible time.

Sorry Ben. Was chuffed to be able to meet you, but I guess that just means I'll have to find an excuse to go through Brighton someday.

There were so many things that happened this week. I will list the 3 things most directly related to transfans:

Paul and Rob got Simon Furman to record a video blessing me and Sarah.
Spencer gave me Mania King.
I married a woman who loves the Wreckers as much as I do.


Amazing time.

Can't seem to get close enough to read the words, sonny. Except the dysfunctional bot page, which is true.

Yeah, can't figure out how to make it bigger.
  • Spine: This is one of those stories with a moral. And the moral is simply this: life persists.
    Page 1: Just an everlasting now
    Page 2: I promise you, I will remember you as you were.
    Page 4: I have been a fool. Made mistakes. Monumental ones. But I have gained a clear understanding of my place in the universe. Of who I am.
    Page 5: I would have waited an eternity for this.
    Page 6: The three most important words in the Cybertronian language, buddy.
    Page 9: A single point of light against the infinite darkness.
    Page 10: Okay, as entrances go, that was only slightly less conspicuous than projecting
    Page 11: "Your Attention Please" on a mushroom cloud.
    Page 12: I need somebody I can trust. Somebody who'll stick with me.
    Page 14: Yeah, dysfunctional isn't the word!
    Page 15: There isn't a normal 'bot among you!
    Page 16: What do you mean, it's a lost cause? Of course it's a lost cause. That's why we're here!
    Page 19: We've achieved something!
    Page 20: Remember what's most important...
    Back cover: One more thing, one last thing, because I don't say it enough: I love you.
