Good golly does PAX stink! It’s not just the aroma of the unwashed, it’s combined with some sort of humid funk that just may be generated by overexcitement and raging hormones. I call it GamerStench. They need to put a plastic tent around the DDR machines. For reals.
And who knew so many young men have boobs bigger than mine? It’s rather unsightly.
On the other hand, the Women in the Games Industry panel was so packed they had to turn people away. Saw lots of my girlies (Teagan, Dangerdoll, Saga, Twin, Psyche, Rhoulette, Elle) and there was much squealing and hugging. Twin spanked my ass in a crowded audotorium. That should get those E3 rumors fired up again.
I met Esko who is working PAX and was kind enough to score me a lanyard for my sponsor badge. Spotted my buddies Drew, Mark, and Jeff from ATI. Drew and Mark warned me not to trust Jeff.
Spent some quality time with my co-conspirators Kitty and Diva… we’ll be chilling at the Xbox booth (in between tourneys and panels) getting the word out about GamerchiX. PLEASE come by and say hello… we’ll be wearing goofy purple "Xbox GamerchiX" t-shirts and drinking Bawls.
Now I gotta go buy a can of Lysol for tomorrow.

PAX is no fun. My house is way funner. Drinking, drinking, food, and drinking going on tomorrow night. I definitely owe you some drinks so if you read this before 7ish tomorrow, hit me up on email and I’ll give you the lowdown.
Dude. You weren’t kidding about the stink. And that’s just a preview.
I just got done saying this in my blog, but I think it bears repeating. Boys, shower. Remember, by the time you can smell yourself, other people have been smelling you for days. And no, it’s not something to be proud of.
so that’s why E-3 was downsized! It was the stench!
Wow. I read this AFTER going to PAX today… and yeah, you both aren’t kidding. Altho, I think the Fanboy Taint smelled far worse than GamerStench. Of course, it’s only going to be worse later today and tomorrow, what with the hot weather coming back to town… jeez. Wonder what it says about me, if I dressed better than normal before going to PAX! I’ll probably get banned from ’07 or lose my XBL account! 😦
That’s just st8 up nasty. I’m kinda glad I didn’t go to PAX now. I got a press release from MMPR today with pictures from the event. It looked packed as hell. You pair that up with a funky smell and I think I might yak. :-(K Rock
Im glad Esko got to meet you at PAX. Its every hardcore xbox community members ultimate goal to meet the Mother Theresa of Xbox.com
Oh my god that was so true, I never wanted to tell some people to shower in my life, what were they thinking. And come on gamers, gaming is cool but you still need to get up and exercise every once and awhile. but all that aside it has been really cool and I’m glad I was able to go.
Well no doubt that I will be at PAX next year, stupid of me to miss it. Awesome that Diva’s there with you, congrats to her on all the success, she’s been so awesome to me for years. Have fun Trix, just know that next year I’m coming, and I’m gonna show the ink that completely owns your gamertag tat (then again we’re brothers/sisters in the gamertag tat world).
It was nice to finally meet you TriXie and I’m sure I’ll see you guys in there tomorrow. Next time I’ll try to keep the 360 sticker on the back of my head longer. 😀
So here’s the thing. It’s not about the lack of hygeine. Most gamers I know do indeed shower regularly. It’s about not taking appropriate measures against what happens when you pair inadequate ventilation, gamer-goth clothing, and tons of excitement and hormones.
I don’t know about anyone else, but Gold Bond powder is wonderful stuff, and something I’d considered dumping on the entire crowd before I realized that it needs to be inside the clothes to do a damned bit of good. Still, it amazes me to realize that some people don’t even take this one simple precaution.
