This year's GMX somehow managed to be even more crazy and amazing than last year's! That's not to say last year wasn't absolutely awesome, because it totally was. We were just much more prepared this time and were able to see even more new faces along with the wonderful returning ones from last year! You're all so great and I couldn't ask for a better group of people.
My highlights of the show:
-The charity auction this year blew me away. Huge thanks to Devin for buying our mask for $175!!! Also huge thanks to everyone who pitched in money to buy us at the slave auction for $200!!! I'm so glad we were able to raise so much money for Out of the Darkness. All of us and GMX personally thank you. You're all perfect.
-Celebrity D&D with the three of us and Veronica Belmont, along with Jamie Chambers and Robert J. Schwalb! Honestly, I was really afraid this would end up not reaching its potential due to only being allotted an hour's time. But Robert Schwalb, who was our DM, was such a damn pro that we were up and running in a minute or two. He was also great about going along with all of our reckless and stupid ideas. Well, mainly Joseph's reckless and stupid ideas. It ended up being a ton of fun, and considering it was mine, Joseph, and Tim's 2nd game ever of D&D, it'll be difficult to top.
-The MH Q&A panel had a great turnout! I just wish we had more time to answer all of your questions. I hope the ones we were able to get to were given satisfying answers. Brian said he felt like a princess.
-Lots of people also seemed to like our sleepy season 2 live commentary pajama party. All of us were dead tired since all of our other panels were Saturday as well, but it was a lot of fun to just hang out with all of you for a while as we made sleep deprived jokes. We're also glad we were able to show you that extra special surprise at the end of the commentary too. Thanks for sticking around, everyone!
-Chatted with Ellen Mclain again at her table and she totally remembered us! She's seriously one of the the sweetest people I've ever met, and it was an honor to see and talk with her again. We were sad that her panel was at the same time as our Q&A panel because we wanted to go so bad.
-Rob Paulsen talked with Tim and I up in the green room Friday night. He's a really supportive guy and gave Tim some great encouragement about voice acting.
-Card Against Humanity in the green room with Ben Paddon was hilarious. We ate dinner with him and lots of other people Saturday night as well. I'm pretty sure he has limitless energy.
Tons of more great stuff happened throughout the weekend but my brain is kind of still whirling around trying to make sense of it all. Regardless, I want to thank each and every one of you who came out to GMX this year. It's a perfectly sized con run by really passionate folks that aren't in it for the money, and that's something that's unfortunately rare. So big gigantic huge awesome thanks to all of you.
Oh yeah, and new MH entries coming soon.
