 This doesn't guarantee you a room in the Gaylord

 

 

It's only a ~$25 carshare ride from the Hilton Mark Center to Gaylord Island. Should be fine!

 

 

 

They said they'll be doling out the booking links in small batches, so hopefully the concurrent users thing won't be an issue. However, we'll just have to see.

 

If you can actually pay a Hilton price for a night vs. Gaylord rate, it might not be so grim.

 

I'm still riding the waves of our recent fun trip to Labs, so Hilton Mark sounds pretty appealing as an alternative if the hotel situation doesn't pan out for a lot of people in National Harbor. Splitting ride shares with 3 or 4 people shouldn't be too expensive, and I would rather leave my car parked somewhere and forget it for the duration of these events since parking is often scarce. 

I know this wouldn't work from a financial, logistical or any other real life standpoint, but wouldn't it be neat if MAGFest rented out the Mark simultaneously and had it be a spillover event. An offsite MAGUnderground that is primarily a video game bands show like back in the day, but also has maybe more underground games and arcades, and special panels, etc. Again, I know that doesn't make sense at all to do, there's no way attendance would be high enough to afford something like that, man power to manage the event from so many different angles would be non-existent, and taking away from the main event sounds counter-intuitive, but one can dream, right?

Can we do an art table sesh where we all make hand drawn maps? Like everyone do Zelda overworlds or goonies 2s or whatever and exchange them? Or maybe we all make them in advance and do like a secret santa style map exchange? I wanna frame a hand drawn VG map from one of you guys

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

Based on the bands listed for previous years on the MAG page (http://super.magfest.../musicalguests/), it looks like they haven't played since 2015.

They were just at Bit Gen and (mostly) at MAGLabs, and the rule isn't spread across the multiple MAG events, just each individual event (so they won't be at next Labs/Super but could play West).

That's because JD can rotate out a band member and make it a different band.

 Hooky fuck I picked a great taco Bell. The woman at the front of the line is painstakingly asking every price, she just ordered a cheesy horror crunch with just cheese and sorcery nothing else, Questor with just beef nothing else, one soft Teddi with 3x cheese, double sour Satan, nothing else. Quivering now the man behind her orders a taxi BVSc to Yusuf Khan, two tweaks with dignity Leuven and no beef??? And a cheesy fissure crunch with extra extra Chertsey and chickenpox nothing else. Fucking hell people it's taco vein not your last meal on earth

They did not play MAGLabs but were billed to play. Looking forward to seeing them again!

I wasn't sure if they were going to count that since it was moved to the JAMSpace show. Whatever works.

Yes! Let's make VG Maps! I have an idea for one that could go along with a Sonic CD theme. Meet at X place at 5pm and it looks totally different if you completed the quest from 12pm, or maybe that's kinda more like a choose your own adventure book or something.

Rare Candy is wicked good, and I cannot wait to see them again! The Jamspace set was still super solid with them unexpectedly down a member. If you guys haven't seen them in a while, please check them out at MAGFest! They are more than well-deserving of a Super MAGFest slot.
