Sounds like you had a great time. The only Blue Nova I know is Ramba Ral from the original Gundam. I wonder if that wrestler is a Gundam fan? Lol John St. John/Duke Nukem 3D's VA is hillarious. I used to have a soundboard of his quotes on my phone, but the app never got updated so it stopped working. I'm actually playing Final Fantasy X that one of your friends got (on Steam in my case.)

Nice, and Ramba Rai is one of my favorite bad guys. Plus i got a picture with Jon St. John, and he signed my copy of Duke Nukem: Time To Kill, and Sonic Team Racing. Oh and he love my version of Big The Cat voice.

Meh, I'll take a milquetoast Neocon like Greg Abbott any day over someone who's actually insane like Gavin Newsom.

My biggest concern with Texas is the ridiculous property taxes though: 3rd highest in the country! I'd rather not have to pay like $6k a year on a house that's only worth $350k. Maybe living there, you get used to it though.

True, but we can find you a house to rent that won't cost you that much.

Nice, was at Retropalooza 8 as well, and I totally agree: It was great having the convention again after 2020. While the prices were ridiculous, of course, there were some cool vendors that were willing to cut deals if buying multiple items and paying cash.

Thing I've always appreciated about the convention is it brings a lot of the hard to find items together, where I can see and examine them before chopping off a limb as payment. Prices have gotten WAY too stupid, and fakes painfully too common, these days for me to want to bother with sites like Ebay anymore.
