View Full Version : NYC Meetup: The SEQUEL

Well, no SoaP sequel. But meetup sequel? Why the fuck not?

So I'm thinkin', sometime in August we can have another big BBS Meetup?! Get drunk? Get stupid? Watch ninth stick his tongue in my mouth (again)? Who knows?

Questions: Who can make it? Where we be stayin'? WHAT WE BE DOIN'? Let's figure this thing out.

If you're in the NYC area...actually, fuck it, if you're in the "Earth" area, you should come and have some fun (I'm also lookin' at YOU, Jesse).

Chime in, people. Thoughts?

There is the strong possibility I could come, at least for a bit. It depends on when and on my job situation at the time. Probably would not be staying there, unless I crashed with someone that lives there because funds are way low. But I should be able to make some part of it. =)

Woooo! I lost my job yesterday and ended up puking on a curb by 9 PM. If I don't puke more and earlier, this meet will be a failure.

And IF AND ONLY IF I like you, I just moved to a new place and have some room for people to crash.

I DO NOT APPROVE YOU MUST BE THERE okay!!!


And IF AND ONLY IF I like you

I can probably make it, and it might give me a nice excuse to use some vacation time at work (I need to blow 2 weeks worth before the end of the year or I lose it). We could always check out the Summerstage for free shows (Battles, Black Dice and Gang Gang Dance are playing there 8/16 but I only really care about Battles). I could also bring Rock'em Sock'em Robots like I did last time. Also, I'll probably have more money this time than I did last time which means I probably won't have to buy a loaf of bread and some peanut butter to last me most of the time I'm there.


:(
I agree.

If Sarah likes me or if my mens is available to come/pick me up from the PATH station, the possibility becomes a definite, pretty much. I don't like walking back to the PATH in Harrison at night by myself and there's no transport back to my town late at night, so those two things make coming in a bit difficult.

aw, bummer of epic proportions - i'm not going to be around in august. i'm in the US until jul 15th and then i'm going bye-byes.

which reminds me, if any of you fine peoplez wants to get their drink (or their sexy) on with me, now is the time. ;p

Probably not. Maybe in a couple of years, when I'm old enough that I don't need to explain the situation to parents (or anyone else that isn't my brother, for that matter).

"Oh, I'm just going to the city for a couple of days to hang out with people I met on the internet!"

If it's after the 22rd, I couldn't show up regardless. That's when I go back.

I'll be right over.

ps. I should also say that the only reason I suggested August was to get as many people involved as possible. This can happen AT ANY POINT this summer!

Mota Boy
06-25-2008, 09:30 AM
There's actually a chance I'll be in that part of the country around that time - my family may be doing a vacationy thing up on that Coast in early August and I already told a friend of mine in NYC that I might be by around that time, but we'll see what happens with this strangely job-like job. I may get distracted and not make it out of the West. Either way, I'm scheming to get to NYC before I skip out of the hemisphere again for an indeterminate amount of time.

Skip them! Or, alternatively, come in between/before/after/whenever.

it's my last exam & then I get my bachelor! I've been waiting for the fucking thing for FIVE years! hell no, babe.

but maybe something else can be arranged. I'm definitely willing to give it a shot, although I have no idea if I've got the money for it, if I will get the money for it & if there will be time, since I'm obligated to go on a two weeks vacation with my bf's family. (& I'm hoping my exam won't be planned during that vacation, or I will be immediately rejected, or something like that)


holy shit, what's taking my pizza so long. I'm hungry!

Seriously, if you were actually able to come to the states I'm sure some people would be able to bend their schedule around yours, so if by "if there will be time" you were referring to folks over here instead of on your end, I wouldn't worry. Rick already said August was just an option.

I was more talking about my end, unfortunately. it's a depressing thought that this should be the time in my life I have more time I'll ever have in the rest of my (active) life. & with university not announcing any data, I never know what's when & I can never plan ahead. if I get a schedule for that period, I know if I'll have to squeeze in my medical research aswell, because that'd just be KILLING.

I could actually make it to the New York one if I wasn't basically broke at this point. Any free time I have for the next few months has to go to finding a job/working at said job. But maybe in a year or so.

I mean, you're free to do whatever you want. Whether we talk to you or acknowledge your existence is a decision that will be made separately by all involved, but you can certainly spend your weekend in NYC if you like.

Little_Miss_1565
06-29-2008, 11:51 PM
It's not like we can discuss this on the open forum and then discourage certain people from going. Lodat spammed the shit out of the forums, but it was a few years ago and who knows, maybe hanging out with forum people IRL would help a lot of people realize that we're not just usernames and forum postings, we're all actual people and an actual community so let's not fuck it up. Nah mean? But, of course, if you're going to be hanging out with the gang you have to show up with the mission in mind to be cool and have fun.

My only caveat is that we ran into some minor issues at the last one because a bunch of people were under 21, and let's face it, most of the fun to be had in public in NYC involves drinking. And eating, but mainly drinking. So if you're under 21, be aware.

Rag Doll
06-30-2008, 09:06 AM
I fully agree with Sarah. Maybe it will help both sides....the, "hey, I shouldn't spam or be a douche because they're cool people!" and the, "hey, let's stop telling him to kill himself because he's alright!" side. I'd say come if you want to come =).

Speaking of NYC. 99% sure I will be there tomorrow. I have a convention for work to go to sometime in the morning (runs from 10am - 4pm). I will probably not stay there long as I am not really in the mood to go. If anyone wants to come see me somewhere around the Madison Square Garden area, probably, let me know ASAP. I can hang in the city til anywhere from like 6-8pm, depending on what form of transportation I take. Come say hi!

Seriously though, I'm up for anyone and everyone hanging with us, no matter who it is. I'm in complete "the more, the merrier" mode. But I don't think I can speak for everyone when I say that, so I won't. But it's all good people, let's get down.

I, oddly enough, can't really plan anything until school starts. I can make plans like a few days to a week in advance when I have my work schedule, but thats about it for now. Once the semester starts, I'll have every Sunday off so I can do something in the afternoon (will have work Monday mornings though). I'd be more willing to take off from work in the spring, because I've already asked for a lot of time off because I have tickets to a bunch of concerts.

Though, I'm definitely up for making the NYC Offspring show a meetup, if anyone has interest in that.

Would it be easier to just wait til that's announced and plan around that? And if there isn't an NYC show, we can still have a meetup and plan a riot to protest.

Isn't planning a riot kind of missing the point?
The Offspring concert's a good idea for a meet-up, but that's probably not until January or something. If Rick or anyone was looking to have something sooner, I'd probably be up for heading up there for at least a Saturday or Sunday at some point provided it's not this weekend or next.

So, about this NYC meetup...

:P

Seriously. A table of "women's ministries" or some crap who was planning some fellowship event at my restaurant gave me the tickets, even after I said I don't go to Lynx games... and then they left me a whopping 8% tip! So now, if I can find anyone who wants to go see some exciting WOMEN'S BASKETBALL!!! I have a whole $3 to spend!!!!!

Sorry, I needed to vent there.

Anyway, I'm getting sued now by the former landlord. So no traveling for me. Fuck my life.

as indeed am I - maybe we should start a Cal meet up of some form or other?
