Quoted from NeilMcRae:

I’m in big trouble then LOL!

Of course you like Kaneda, he named a whole podcast after how boring you are (He did delete it though). Kudos to you to having a sense of humor about it (and I didn't think you were boring on head 2 head by the way).

Not a Kaneda fan at all, but put me on the side of thinking that the booing was classless and needlessly disruptive (although, probably just and example of someone being drunk and making a fool out of himself).

The Franchi bit was fine too -- come on people. It's even more hilarious that there were actually people who fell for it.

Quoted from DBLM:

Two wrongs don’t make a right

Strangely, that about sums it up.

Quoted from wolftownjeff:

I have no idea who Franchi is.
In the autograph session he was talking about having been fired from his job on Friday.
I thought it was strange he was talking about it and he was acting like someone who had in fact been fired.
He signed my stuff and lo and behold I watch hem flip out on stage. I had no idea what was going on still don't.

1. He's a pretty big pinball artist of late (Munsters,Beatles,BM66,GOTG). Now you know.
2. It was a joke put together by the show organizers and the artist that won the award. Franchi just didn't go off and do this on his own. If the Joke failed it was a group effort.
3. If you go back a page you'll find a long explanation by Franchi himself.
4. Hearing him talk about being fired must have made the whole thing pretty confusing/dramatic for you

Quoted from zaphX:

I was really just speaking to the notion that the TWIPYs don’t matter and could be ignored by stern et al.
My view and observation is that they did matter a great deal to the folks who participated.
And yeah being new I had no idea what that guy has done or who he is. Respect to him for also being a maker who helps the community thrive. Alien is a piece of art.
I generally try to post in a way that spreads positive energy. Sorry that I appear to have failed.

I actually think he was just saying that this reminded him that he hadn't made anything in a while because you've been a member for years and you still became a member after his last pinball work. I don't think he mean't anything negative towards you at all.

Quoted from Metaluna5:

What’s that supposed to mean????

Sorry, it was just a bad joke about the twippy bit you were in. I'll edit the post to make sure people that read this thread realize I wasn't serious. Anyway, I thought the twippy skit was funny. Love your work!
