Shawncaster's PAX East Retrospective
Mar 25th 2013
Ladies and gentlemen it is time for my PAX East retrospective!
I was both overwhelmed and underwhelmed by PAX East 2013. It was my first ever convention and it was definitely a good one for my first con, but there were some times that I was disappointed.
I started out my day by being rudely awakened by Octaveus, my dad, and I was told to get ready to go, then two and a half hours pass, all because mother can't get ready to go anywhere fast to save herself. We finally leave at about 9 AM, I'm slowly starting to freak out/ getting pissed off because the con starts at 10. We have an hour to get from home, no I'm not telling you people where I live, to The Boston Exhibition and Convention Center (BECE for short). This is why we can't have nice tings, we will be late to our own funerals if we go as a group. So off we go to PAX! Thus begins the hour and a half drive to the BECE, where I listened to my playlist of VGM, which has a lot of OC Remix music. at about the China Town point I stumble across the Sephiroth Boss music remix, this song was quickly put on loop and it set the mood for the rest of the day.

Shawncaster's Pre PAX East writeup.
Mar 22nd 2013
So yet another "C" Block, Yet another Blog Post. Interesting how a lot of my ideas happen in the 90 minute Foundations of Algebra 2 Part A class. Yea "C" block is my first class this week, 4 block rotating schedule is a thing here.
So I'm going to PAX East on Sunday, and it is the first convention I will be going to of any type. I'm pumped, but also a little unnerved. This will be the first convention I will be going to, suppose I hate it? I highly doubt that I will tho. My Mum and little sibling? Well mum's a germaphobe so I expect quite a bit of hand washing when we get home. The little monster, he/she/it/thing might like it. Octaveus (dad), and I? We are gonna have tons of fun.
What I plan on doing; See as much as I can, get as much information as I can for multiple posts, get all the free stuff. What you can expect from me; at least one or two posts, one retrospective, and one writeup for information about different games. Oh and expect a photo gallery of pictures I take at the con.

So... Why have I not done a Daily 5 every day?
Mar 18th 2013
So Shawncaster why havn't you done a Daily 5 every day?
Short answer, I'm lazy and didnt think of anything.
Long answer, I have been busy. With school, StarCraft 2 Heart of The Swarm, and running a Minecraft server (Which you can play on) I have had little time to think of stuff. I'm gonna fix that, somehow.

What is a Daily 5?
Mar 12th 2013
So the thought occoured to me during class, where I am writing this post, "These people don't know what a Daily 5 is." As Edge described it to me a week or so ago, a Daily 5 is a short, read few words, blog post that has a topic and five pictures with a short caption. In essence, a Cracked picture article, only smaller.
That is what a Daily 5 is. I will not be the only person posting these. This was not my idea, Edge wanted me to help out and do some, therefore I will.
Remember: When in doubt, blame the other guy
