Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.

Thanks so much Tarantulas and AmandaGal for sharing in detail.  And the pics are fun too.

I'd wanted to attend, but when GoogleMap indicated just how many hundreds of miles I'd be travelling, I decided to stay in NYC and brave the Halloween eggings here.

Well Mike had mentioned that he was on the brink of doing something up Milwaukee way in the next few months... the first Rifftrax-Con?  Me thinks so.

You photograph pretty well, Spidey =)

However, your untruthful/Hollywood portrayal of the event is most unappreciated ;)
I asked Mike for the /REAL/ story and he told me about how you reeked of cheap booze, and the car you really drove was a stolen fire engine... hehe

=P

I plead the 5th..... ELEMENT!

ZING!

Actually, I'm sure I left out tons of what happened... I was just excited to be there. 

If Mike remembers who is supposed to end up with that thank you note (and if it matters) let me know.

Well really all it takes is a bunch of people to commit to showing up.

Just make sure to gauge the phase of the moon, lest this happen (again)

That could have been worded nicer considering that the picture is a joke about overzealous fandom anyway.

It should be "Don't make an ass of yourself when meeting your hero."

It's all in good fun anyway.  ;D

"Because showing your hero what a gigantic tard you are arm you have is no good."

Fixed.  Oh, Popeye!  ;)
