It’s Saturday morning. Outside, the sun over the river is
like Kanye’s finest gold.
But I’m distracted, looking
forward to Tuesday night.
forward to Tuesday night
because we all get together, a community of proud nerds
because honorary member Daniel Radosh of the Daily Show is intelligent and funny and droll
because former Rockstar Shawn Alexander Allen will show off Treachery in Beatdown City
because Polygon’s Russ Frushtick is the Grim Reaper on Fox Business news, and I want to know more
because Unwinnable’s Chuck Moran has a new daughter, and I want to hear about it
because I want to grin at the castrating wit of Giant Bomb’s Alex Navarro
because this will be the first Circle experience for Mashable’s Chelsea Stark
because Kotaku’s Jason Schreier always has that wry nerd way
because Spike’s Jason Cipriano probably has tales of Comic Con that I haven’t heard
because Tech News Daily’s Jill Scharr will talk about that game writing Master Class
because intern Sarah Awad will has mavin-like insight into Final Fantasy
because videographer/writers Victor Kalogiannis and Jorge Jimenez are just so ardent about the games world
because who knows which game world luminaries will be there
because more critics and a thousand reasons
because because because you will be there
and we and you are
we and you are
like Kanye’s shiniest gold.
