    Welp, this.
    My pennance for questionable taste in sticker hats is in being up this early.

    The core Retro group was off on the left side of the venue, so you may have seen us at some point—there was about a dozen of us congregated at any one time, floating in and out of the crowd. Unfortunately, with the noise level being as high as it was in there, I wouldn't blame you for not stopping and saying hello; we were all near each other and could barely talk.

    Amazing night and totally worth the 3 hour nightmare of going from Long Beach Airport to my hostel, only to have to quickly leave to the Barcade, which should have been 20 minutes by bus but I didn't know which ones to take so I walked for 45 minutes instead and barely getting my phone charged up (somehow it managed to last until the car ride home, when it's GPS would have been useful. oh well)

    It occured to me that I have nobody's numbers, so hopefully I will find a way to get informed of anything that happens today. (Probably via this thread!)

    And I'll always get to say I saw Splash Hill Zone performed live. Everyone that didn't go is in envy right now.

    I got photos I'll be uploading and I got some extra swag.

    I'll be giving that away very soon. Stay tuned: you may just own a Sonic Generations 20th Anniversary shirt. XL in size, though.

    Why would you want a shirt when you can have a hat from the hat tower?

    That was pretty fun. I was already drunk when I stumbled in. Managed to (briefly) meet a few of you. Tried to find Svend after realizing he was there but now that I think about it, he probably wouldn't remember me from the Sonic United days anyways. But holy shit someone should have taken a picture of my face when this happened:

    If you're awake this early, we're getting breakfast as a group at the Pantry at 9:30.

    Actually, what all extra swag is there? I may be interested in paying for one of the shirts or something like that.

    I have:

    -2 Sonic Hats.
    -1 XL 20th Anniversary Shirt
    -2 sets of Sonic Generations pins

    Most likely, I'll be giving them for a donation drive unless the price is right. I DO have loans to pay back.
