I'm not coming, but I'll be providing a long, rambling audio/visual commentary to Chris's long, rambling videotaped message. I expect you to play both in full.

Post by: Shaggy 2 Grote on August 21, 2009, 11:57:31 AM
Pretty close, Jeremy, they share a border.  But you would either need someone to pick you up at NWK, or investigate bus options.  You could probably take a shuttle to Newark Penn Station and grab the PATH to Jersey City, which would be cheap and take maybe an hour, but might be a pain in the ass.

Its very close. Less than 30 minutes by car, about the same by train. Two stops to Newark Penn then 4 stops to Exchange Place or wherever you might be staying.

Yes, yes, I totally forgot that the NJT train stops at NWK and has for years.  And I've taken it to the airport multiple times and have been passing it on the way to work three times a week for the past six years.  Obviously my brain is trying to tell me that I am not ready to go back to work.

Yeah, people go by themselves. The last two times friendships were forged and romances were sparked.
I ended up building some scenery for a guy I met at the first one, that was two years ago and a month ago he threw a party for his son's baptism in my garden.

Edit- where do you live? Maybe you could get a ride with somebody.

About going by yourself: I would recommend it.
I went to two comedy events that a bunch of people from ComedyZone went to and there were efforts to meet up. The time I was alone it was great, but it is a little weird to be introducing people who know to people you electronically kind of know. It makes an awkward at first situation an awkward the whole time situation.

there is family vibe that comes with this board if youre on long enough.  even if youre not on the board that long, there are an adequate amount of FOT who will make you feel WELCOME, beyond what you could imagine from a "stranger". 

i love this board and i love the FOT.  trust me, you'll feel alone for about two seconds before youre shaking hands and taking names.

Can someone bring a friend, who's not a FOT, equip him/her with a headset, and have him/her hook up a webcam to his/her glasses, then connect it to either a phone or a laptop with wifi and stream the video and audio feed to me while I'm on Skype instructing the dummy (as it were) what to say, do and drink? thx

Like this?

I am now quite pumped to say that I will be there. I will be the one dressed as Spike.

This will ruin the mystique. I urge you to reconsider.

*nervously typing first post ever on the FOT Forum*

I am going to try to come! Anyone else headed up from Baltimore? Or maybe I will take a bus to NYC and then take some kind of transit to Jersey City...

Thanks! *blush*

Started listening I believe last November- it was the show where Tom talked about the art student who made a gold fence and put it up around a city park in Baltimore. I work for the art school where that piece was created, so my brother sent me a link to the show, and the rest is history.

Ended up taking the FOTalo express down with other wonderful FOTs (I am terrible and can't remember everyone's names..) You guys are the best. As a tiny young lady it was definitely "one of these is not like the others" in the car :)

We had perfect timing and saw Tom walk around the corner and Mike come out of the pizza show just as we were parking. It was like, bing, bang, Best Show time!
