Report on NIGA 2011

Monday my pal Victor and I left in mid-afternoon for Phoenix. We stopped for some fateful Del Taco food and didn't arrive until 9 pm.

We didn't have time to do anything except watch The Green Hornet, which was as mediocre as I expected. Seth Rogen and his alter ego Britt Reid both wanted to play superhero even though they weren't qualified. Rogen/Reid spent most of the movie gushing over crimefighting gizmos, leering at Cameron Diaz, and exploiting Kato, who did all the work and got none of the credit.

Tuesday I woke up feeling nauseous after eating several leftover tacos the previous evening. I spent most of the day in bed and didn't feel better until late in the evening. Victor manned the Pechanga.net booth and reported seeing Adam Beach, among others.

Wednesday I made it to the trade show floor for the last four hours of the convention. I spent part of that time walking around and taking pictures. I shook hands with George "Comanche Boy" Tahdooahnippah, who was at the Rocket Gaming area greeting people. Other than an Aztecs-themed slot machine, I didn't see anything worth mentioning. Later activist Sonny Skyhawk and director Georgina Lightning came by our booth and said hello. And we packed up and headed home.
