At 9pm on Wednesday, August 24, a group of some dozen dedicated overthinkers undeterred by the east coast earthquate and unfazed by the impending hurricane gathered to eat, drink, and overthink. Fans of the site and podcasts, as well as significant others of same, saw each other IRL for the first time.
The results were predictably unpredicable—”I thought you’d be shorter” is the favorite reader comment Iheard (thanks, Mike)—and pretty soon, the ideas started flying, including this gem: a sequel to Newsies set in the great depression and starring present-day Christian Bale. That’d be better than Green Lantern for sure.
Our thanks to everyone who came out, it was a pleasure to meet you!
