PAX Day Zero
August 29th, 2008

Posted by Tim

Hey everyone!

This is Tim, reporting from the hotel room I’m sharing with Graham, Paul, Morgan, Matt, and tank_girl. Everyone else is asleep, but my internal clock doesn’t let me sleep past 7:30 these days, and I’ve never been very good at getting back to sleep once I’m awake.

The hotel was having issues with its internet last night, so I figured I’d fire up my laptop and see if they had resolved the problem yet. Seems like they have, so here’s an update on what we’re up to and what you can expect from LRR during PAX.

Yesterday (Thursday) we cruised on over to Seattle via the Clipper ferry. We arrived around 2:30, took a taxi to the hotel, and loaded our stuff into our rooms before heading out to enjoy the city. To get an idea of what we did while we were there, you’ll have to watch the special-edition version of Loading Time: PAX Day Zero, which will hopefully be up and viewable by later this morning or this afternoon (pending the Revver process).

(Ok, Paul’s awake now and set me up with access to the blog so I could post this.)

The other important piece of news you should pay attention to is this forum post by Graham:

After running into a local fan we could ask, we’re going to aim for The Hurricane Cafe located at 7th and Bell.

Apparently the hours, food, pricing and atmosphere fit our needs nicely.
And if it sucks there’s another (slightly more expensive) option nearby, where this local LRR fan works.

How’s that sound to everyone?

Hopefully everyone can make it there! We’ll see you then, and we’ll have more news from PAX as it happens, internet-willing.


  1. Congratulations on fully insinuating yourself into LRR Tim, now I just need move to Canada and claim you had major reconstructive surgery…

  6. Well by usernames we have 4 humans, a rabbit, and a girl from a post-apocalyptic world that drives a tank, all sharing a room.

    No matter what happens it’s going to be a wierd night.

  11. Are you saying I should grow my facial hair back? I have been bearded and goateed before, at different times.

  12. That could be a possibility? haha. Well it would putt Matt to shame seeing as he is still growing peach fuzz. But watch in 5 years Matt will be able to grow the most magnificent beard ever grown before and it will blind people because it is so beautiful. It’s a possibility. But yes grow back a beard and join the club :D
