WOOP WOOP, IMMA GOING LONDON MEETUP <edit> NO IVVA BEEN MEETUP YAY

Posted by mranarchy - August 29th, 2008


So...out of bordem, fustration, curiosity and the fact that I just need to gt that little bit more out of newgrounds, I am going to the 3rd Newgrounds London meet. tomorrow!

Now Luis said that 'you can just turn up'

As much as I'd like the day to go well, maybe meet some new people and have a good time, I predict it to go like this

I turn up, vaguely acknowledge myself to an already established group of long time NG friends, hang around fringes of group as they have good time, occasionally attempting to have a chat with someone and failing to really bond, get pushed out of group as 18+ lot (ie the majority) go to a bar, (I has no ID D:)

The above is principally because I have never really established myself on newgrounds, I have no flash or audio, I have a large amount of shitty posts and have never really made any specific friends through this site, looking at the meetup thread, it seems that most people know each other...leaving me and a few others to be the 'loner-taggers on'

However, this being said, nothing ventured, nothing gained, I might just learn something from the soul-crushing experience of being shunned by internet nerds. and by next year, I may have finally got some animations started (I've been learning claymation for a while now)

peace!

Oh yeah! apparently I used to be a mod and would make a better one than EyeLovePoozy ... HAHA!!!...wheere do these people get their Ideas?

Well it was'nt as bad as I anticipated, I met some nice people (I can only guess names, I'll confirm who they are when I see some tagged pictures) And forced them to talk with me >:(..eh its obnoxious but better than just not talking to anyone.

I also took a bunch of shitty pictures

OK, the day went as follows

-Turned up half an hour early to the meetup point, I was surprised to see a bunch of people in newgrounds Tshirts already there.

-Awkwardly muttered 'erm is this the ng meetup?' met by sarcasm 'no its the lolcats one' hur hur

-Over next 40 minutes talk with people until luis showed up and we went to namco...I still say that trocadero would have been a bette choice but apparently (The eye is a good meeting point) so meh

-We all played some bowling, I suck

-then we went down to a bar,at this point I realised I had forgotten my ID so >name here later< very kindly went and got me a pear cider....which I then spilled on myself

-hanging around in a bar for a few hours, occasionally going to play shooter games and stuff, other people went to mcdonalds and played DDR, at this point everyone was very much separated into their social groups for the day...It consisted of all the 'cool guys' (lol) who where well into the whole meetup thing and staying at a magical flat in Russell square

-the drunken nutter that was 'dean' became apparent, we all went to drive the dodgems and he shouted 'twat' all the time...at one point I was in a dodgem with him...that was interesting :)

Videos of the loveable man

I took this one...he was showing of his boxers with hasslehoff on them all day

.

-we all left to go to glouster road for some reason, Tom from the sfb was very much in control now...he was like gandalf, leading us on a quest which could have been done much more easily if we had gone to a restaraunt in westminster..but there is apparently a brilliant one in GR...I did'nt think so but whatever

-Lost Dean in westminster...Oh noes!!!

-Nobody was that hungry, but we swarmed a restaurant...I talked with some guys including BannaBreadMuffin(OMG NO WAI A MOD!!!!) and Scuzzfest.

-Me and scuzzfest buy waffles and act out weebls 'waffles'

-everyone planning to go clubbing, I know I might not get in due to lack of ID but decide to go anyway...Take the tube to Covent Garden

-Everything fucks up...people get split into loads of little groups, ones going to the flat, ones tht took a taxi etc etc

-SFB Tom tries to reorganise it all...some half of everyone slowly meets up in covent garden-still a bunch of people at the magic mystery flat.

-Went to a pub around soho, again spit into two groups on accounta bouncer wont let me or some other guys in :'(

-We did all manage to get into a bar called walkabout, have a few drinks as the flat lot come over

-The group finally all together Tom decided we needed to go the the sports bar off leicester square

-everyone apart from me gets in, I feel kinda sad hat I cant say goodbye, I wave vaguely through the window and trudge to the tube...a depressing end to an otherwise fun day :)

Hey, it's me Tom. Sucked I had to go so early + I missed coach anyway. Good to meet you though :3

Yeah you too man... pity about having to leave eh...But the night wound down after that, you got the best of the trip.

Dude we needed some potato waffles.
It was great meeting you, we had a long chat, It was funny and awesome at the same time. :D

Oh good...I had this terrible feeling that I had made a complete dick of myself...good to know that :D

hooray thanks for recognition :)

*sees pic*

I think Brittany (DJBrixX) and me played on htat very table :D

but it might have been the one next to it.

(it's in Trocadero, isn't it?)

Namco arcade Mate...

i said, i fucking said, TROCADERO>NAMCO But apparently Namco is 'more accessible' or some shit...bleeh

Well I have to admit, I didn't read it all, I just saw that picture and thought I recognized it...
ah well, I had a great time in London/England too :)

That looks like fun

Well next time I hope you bring your ID.. I seriously expect you in Jan... well not seriously but it would be nice.. it normally takes a couple of these for me to get around to really mingling with everyone..

I know that sounds lame and diva-ish but its just toughhhh

Anyway I hope the last part of it didnt damper your spirits of the group. I felt kinda bad, i was in there and then someone came to me and said i think we lost someone and i went out there and you were gone :(

Ah well that makes me feel better <3

Anyway yeah, I hope to come In Jan...A levels might be a problem though...anyway, thanks for organising it luis!

Bring your A Levels... we can have it be a London NG Study Group Meet

haha...Awesome, I can have my art done by a bunch of professional flash animators.

Plagiarism FTW

I'm sorry.

Eh?
