I'll Kiss Asses for E3 Passes

If anyone out there can get me a guest pass into E3 or wants to loan me their own badge for the third day, please let me know. I’ll happily take you out to lunch.

May 12, 2004: I’m all set for Friday! Thank you so much (you know who you are).


    It’s been a dream of mine to go to E3, someday. Unfortunately, I’ll have to time being in the area with mooching a pass somehow.

    Supposedly, I am getting a few passes from vendors. Drop me an email and if they come through, I’ll get you one.

    For some unkown reason I got a pass to E3 last year. I’m only a simple network admin at an ISP in Louisiana, yet I got a pass. Of course I couldn’t use it becasue I didn’t have the funds to fly out and pay for a hotel, as I’m sure I won’t this year. So if I happen to get another one this time consider it yours.

    E3?! It’s a freaking videogame convention. What’s the matter with you? Eveyone knows real men go to Comicon dressed as Obi Juan Kenobi. Seriously though, be careful as conventions are cracking down on illicit badge trading. At the last convention I went to they took my picture at registration that subsequently popped up on a handheld when they scanned my badge at the door. Very creepy.

    This is the first year my company has not provided us with passes for friends (normally 10 or so per person). We did get our own badges, which I’m told I have to pick up at the convention center. This leads me to believe they’re going to photograph me.

    I don’t know if this is E3 doing this, or our company just didn’t get the passes this year, but it sucks.

    It’s always been a dream of mine to go to E3, but I highly doubt I will this year as my network is hardly prestegious enough to be taken seriously by anyone.

    Wait, ‘Obi Juan Kenobi’? Please say that that’s not a typo, because that’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in months.

    WATCH OUT, E3 is taking dna samples to enable one to pick up badges this year……EEKS!!
