Pico Day Meetup 2013

2013-04-02 15:17:17 by Sabtastic

Hey! Just a heads up that I'll be heading out to the NG Headquarters in Philly again this year! Hope to see you there!

I'll be there Monday April 29th - Sunday May 5th, so that means I won't be able to make it for the Pico Day meetup! :( If any of you decide to stay a little longer, though, I'm sure I'll seeya around the office or at Stamper's--where I'll be staying.

Be sure to drop me a line if you're gonna hang around in Philly! I'd love to hang out. This time around I'm planning to go on adventures and see the sights, so you'd be more than welcome to recklessly meander around PA with me while I do that.

P.S. The reason I'm being lame and not going to Pico Day on time is because my 23rd birthday is on the same weekend and I missed visiting with family/friends last year. Couldn't talk my way out of work either. </3
P.P.S: BIG THANKS TO JakBaronKing FOR THE EARLY BIRTHDAY PRESENT! <3 He gifted me the points to download a copy of Battleblock Theater!!
P.P.P.S: Check out my sweet new shades! Vnzi made 'em! Ask her nice and I bet she'll make you some, too!

They Look Very Happy ! :3

Sabtastic responds:

I guess we were!


2013-04-02 15:32:28

I was about to pat your head softly in the picture :P

Also I am not coming this year :'(
Im overworking myself this month to finish my internship requirements.

Sabtastic responds:

Haha - my favourite part of this picture is Tomar's booty.

You're not gonna make it this year?! :( Aaah. That sucks man.
There's always gonna be next year though. Hell, I'm pretty sure visiting ANY time of the year isn't impossible, either. lol

Good luck with that internship!! How long do you have left?


2013-04-02 15:36:31

I'm gonna probably go too!
I finally got invited somehow!
(They must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel if they want me going)

(Updated ) Sabtastic responds:

Cool beans! haha I guess I'll see ya there!
And don't worry, I had the exact same feeling of denial when I got an invite the first time, too.


2013-04-02 15:38:26

Maybe ill runaway from home and go. I live in NY but of course those bastards had to move.

(Updated ) Sabtastic responds:

Haha maan - you're so lucky you're in NY! I'd kill to be that close.
Out where I live, I don't even have a handful of friends from Newgrounds -- they're all on the east coast.


2013-04-02 15:42:18

Internship ends May 14th so a little over a month left! :D

Sabtastic responds:

Niiice! Best of luck movin' up the proverbial ladder, buddy!


2013-04-02 15:53:14

Looks like financial issues are taking a priority for me, else I would have booked a flight already! Still, I hope you have fun!

Sabtastic responds:

Fair enough man! There's always next year. :)
I just baaaarely scraped together some extra cash this time, myself.


2013-04-02 15:54:46

Even I got invited, what a B-list event this is going to be without you there!
There are sights in Philly I haven't seen yet, and would like to discuss art and education with you, but the cost to travel there again mid-week might be too much.

Sabtastic responds:

Ah, shoot - I guess we're just going to be missing each other by that much!! D:
NJ isn't too far though - that must be a nice trip. Too close to bother with an airplane, I bet.

haha I'm serious there isn't a soul within 500km of me who cares about Newgrounds where I live! xD


2013-04-02 15:59:18

has it been a year already D:
man, time flies by so quickly :(

Sabtastic responds:

Inorite? ._.
...God, I can't believe how time flies.


2013-04-02 16:44:43

Shit, I really wish I could go. Maybe next year.

(Updated ) Sabtastic responds:

Aw, no worries!


2013-04-02 17:12:32

Can't wait to hang out again <3

Sabtastic responds:

Yay!! I'll PM you for your digits. We'll figure something out. c:


2013-04-02 17:24:59

I'd hang out, but I can't afford plane tickets and I have school lol. Ah well, maybe next year!

Sabtastic responds:

Aw, too bad! :(
Maybe next year then!!


2013-04-02 17:40:04

lol @ ross

Sabtastic responds:



2013-04-02 20:31:21

I never realised Tomar had such a magnificent booty before

Sabtastic responds:

Truly a booty to behold


2013-04-02 21:24:20

You do that same pose for a lot of pictures don't you?

Sabtastic responds:



2013-04-02 22:35:10

Your beard is coming along great!

Sabtastic responds:

You should see it THIS year! :U


2013-04-02 22:51:46

Take many pictures!
Draw Stamper if you get the chance!

Sabtastic responds:

lol I actually already drew Stamper -- have a peek at the latest picture in my gallery! :P


2013-04-02 23:36:37

Yes Sab I saw. However I mean more hand drawn.


2013-04-02 23:36:52

I'm not coming off as well. Me no art speako.

Sabtastic responds:

lol It's aaaaaaallll goooood. XD
I'll see what I can do. Might have to sneakily creep up on him while he's cooking tiny cat meals for Sushi and sketch him while he's distracted.


2013-04-03 00:28:43

Makes me wish I wasn't poor. Maybe someday I'll be able to afford a plane ticket to hang out with you guys sometime! :)

Sabtastic responds:

Some daaay!! D:> Sorry you can't make it out this time! :c
Make sure to save up for next year, okay!!?


2013-04-03 01:55:12

they just dont make jewish asses like they used to

Sabtastic responds:

lol whoa, what's with the red glasses?


2013-04-03 06:24:26

Hopefully see you there ;3

Sabtastic responds:



2013-04-03 08:47:17

I might be able to actually make it this time.

Assuming my eye surgery goes well. (*_*)

Sabtastic responds:

Don't miss it man - if it's within your ability, you totally won't regret going. TRUST ME.

I wish you the best with the eye surgery!! Are you getting your vision improved, or is it something bigger?


2013-04-03 09:02:23

Maaaan, that's during my college break..
If only money were no issue.
Stop by Toronto and let me hide in your suitcase Sab?

(Updated ) Sabtastic responds:

Haha - I'll keep you in mind if I ever road-trip out that way! I have some family in QC, so I'm sure it's a possibility. xD

This time around, I'm just taking a plane. B:


2013-04-03 10:39:44

College finals is the reason I can't go :(
But I know it's gonna be a blllaast!!

Sabtastic responds:

Aw, shitty...! Yours go on for that long?
Mine are done around the 15th, thankfully, so this trip is like a little gift to myself for surviving the semester.


2013-04-03 11:30:33

i wish i was from US
oh well, say hi to Tom from me if you get the chance

Sabtastic responds:

Will do! :D


2013-04-03 17:41:10

i remember taking that photo.
Good times...can't wait to go again.
See you all there!


2013-04-03 19:16:16

Oh yes, I am getting it SO corrected.


2013-04-03 19:20:44

In all fairness-you DID help me become a Beta Tester for the game.

Sabtastic responds:

Aw, shucks. I merely pointed you in the right direction! ;D


2013-04-04 04:57:52

The outage earlier this week has really backed up the Portal to crisis levels! But I found this, and know how much you appreciate this type content. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/614639


2013-04-05 00:38:45

I am going to steal your picture taking pose if you don't mind. Just something about double pointing is cool.............


2013-04-14 06:18:59

I won't be able to make it. Even if I could, stopping there would have been so much better, to meet up with talented peeps like yourself.


2013-04-23 23:00:18

it's odd last you had a great pico day and now this year it turn out bad :/ but hey you're not the only one . This also happen to frozenfire and twisted4000.


2013-04-28 12:05:53

this was a great pico day, even if you weren't there :3
also happy birthday :#

Sabtastic responds:

Aww, thank you!! c:
Yeah, I'm really bummed out that I missed it. Hopefully enough people will stick around until I arrive on Monday night!! x_x


2013-05-03 22:03:47

Aww, the little birdy doesn't go zap-zap, but everything else works! Very cute game, and Happy Birthday!


2013-05-03 22:18:32

Ha, ha, never mind, I guess the programmer fixed it! Thank goodness you can see the reviews come in while it's still under judgement! Did you get any presents from the NG contingent? What did you see in Philly that sparked your interest?
Half drunk, I told Wade about Thomas Paine's trip to Philly from Valley Forge, with a few of Ben Franklin's young apprentices in tow. Howe's army was just outside of the city, Congress had fled, leaving Paine and the kids to make copies of his (Paine's) speech, to keep the Continental Army from disbanding (their enlistments were up around Christmas time).
While searching for a printer that snowy night, a few British-loyal citizens recognized Paine as a traitor, and chased them... Paine and the kids managed to lose them once, the snow was so thick, but the second time, faced with 3 big men, heavy brass tipped walking sticks in hand, Paine acted. He grabbed a piece of firewood from a nearby storefront, raised it over his head, and chased after the roughians, screaming through the streets! The kids were safe, and the commotion woke a printer who was willing to assist Paine... Crazy Yanks, huh?
