I was just reading Slate and saw they had a video montage of clips from gencon. I took a look and was all happy when I saw that the side of my head had made it into the video. I mean, cool beans right? It's like seeing yourself in a CNN video, even if you're the only person likely to recognize the side of your own head. I was all aglow only to realize when I started the video back up that I had a bigger chunk than I first though. Ummm. Ya. It's sorta disturbing really. Being the guy yelling about Jesus being his personal shield is a little whacky.<br /><br /> Video

Agreed, yes your clip in the video humorously off, especially given that non-gamer people watching the video may take you literally.<br /><br />Overall the video wasn't completely wrong, but like most press gencon gets it seemed like they had to overly amplify the weird.

Darn Henwy, you beat me to it--I was going to point out you are famous.<br /><br />I thought the video was pretty good.  It does amplify the weird, but it does it without belittling it as compared to, say, the Maxim Magazines ones:<br /><br /> http://www.maxim.com/Wordassociation/video/4900.aspx <br /><br />There are three others besides this one.

Thanx for posting the link to the video, henwy.  I'm going to pass it on to my wife so she can see how well-adjusted my time at GC is.<br /> =D<br /><br />

I'm wondering if it's worthwhile to go trolling over on some evangelical sites and show them the video as an example of how I was trying to bring the word of God to the HP obsessed. :P

Just looked at the video.  I am a little slow but was your spot on the video outside of the ballroom?  Sorry I am still trying to put faces with names and tags on the forums.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only person yelling about Jesus in the video.
