I just got tickets to go see Jonathan Coulton and Paul & Storm at the Bell House on October 7th! I haven’t seen them since 2010, back at PAX Prime in Seattle, when I went with my West Coast buds.
I remember getting up at 4 AM to drive up to Seattle in the dark. The first 100 people who arrived at PAX got free tickets to see JoCo and Paul/Storm, and we were dedicated to getting those tickets. We decided we were going to cosplay as gangsta versions of Mario, Luigi, Wario, and Peach.
This was me at 17, sitting in on one of the panels at PAX.
