Community meet up: Come meet us in Cape Town this Friday!

1 min read

This coming weekend the Mother City hosts the highly-anticipated FanCon 2017, a time where everyone can get their geek on in the safety of Cape Town’s International Convention Center. In build up to this Kervyn has been hard at work interviewing organisers and offering free tickets while I’ve been enjoying the buzz in the air not associated with my tinnitus.

We also have some Critical Hit crew in the area and they’d love to meet you. No, really, they would! “Meet REAL people?” you ask. Why, yes… We are not just virtual figments of your work-tired mind but people with dreams, aspirations, and even feelings; Trevor has yet to display any of the latter though.

This Friday 28th April we would love to say “Hi” to you all and will be meeting at the River Club in Observatory, Cape Town. I’ve booked a table for 5pm so if you are in the area, then please pop by for a drink, a bite to eat and a good ol’ time. Noelle, Trevor, Kervyn, Zoe, Tracy, Darryn and moi will be there to prove that Critical Hit is not just some front for a money-laundering syndicate and we really want you to believe that. Some regular commentators will also be in attendance so you may finally meet that person you’ve been trolling for the past 5 years, for better or worse!

Details:

  • Friday 28th April at 17:00
  • River Club
  • Liesbeek Parkway & Observatory Rd, Observatory, Cape Town, 7925
  • Phone: 081 249 7549

I’ve booked a table under Nick so just ask a waiter and they’ll lead you to a loud space filled with beer. We hope to see you there!

  1. Feelings? There’s more than one?

      Oh course there’s more than one!
      Hatred and apathy.
      That’s TWO!
      Any other feelings people may make mention of can neatly be divided between those. You can call them sub-feelings, if you want to get all scientific and shit.

        I’ll call them delusional. And if they don’t like it they can exercise one of those two you mentioned.

          I have a witty response, but I don’t care to post it here.

        Apathy is a lack of feelings, like value NULL or black (which is not a colour!). The two feelings are Hatred and Contempt

          Stop trying to be clever is this place where lack of feelings are considered a feeling!

            But correcting people fills the void of my insecurity, giving a false sense of accomplishment in an otherwise bland life XD

            In a way. Got some books. Started planning out 3 short stories based in the worlds of my existing main ones. Gotta pick one and start writing it. Problem is I’ve had these in my head for 10+ years, so I have to age the lore up a bit as most of it seems juvenile.

            You’ve started. That’s the important bit. Once the ball is rolling, you’d be surprised how fast it can pick up steam.
            My first novel, it took me about 3 years to write the first 100 pages. The next 500+ I finished in less than 2 months.

            The pages sure add up quickly when you start using a bigger font. 😀

            I’m smiling now, but is it anger or apathy?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            April 25, 2017 at 14:58

            Anger? That’s not one of the two choices. Are you being delusional?

            Yeah I’ve been putting it off for ages. Will see how far I get in the next month. Also, is your novel published somewhere?

          • Original Heretic

            Not anymore, I’m afraid… Went of print over a decade ago. It never sold very well, even though the few critics who saw it had a few good things to say.
            It was quite demoralizing at the time, to such an extent that I virtually gave up writing anything longer than short stories until very recently.
            So, currently, busy with a project.

            When it comes to my safety I’ll swing that club hard!

            Hehe. We will be there at 5pm though.

            April 25, 2017 at 14:24

            It’s the coming back that will be a problem

            April 25, 2017 at 14:27

            No, you are correct. Not safe at all. Not to mention it is on the start of a long weekend.I live down the road so getting an uber is easy. We often have meet ups at 1pm on a Sat. You must come to the next one.

          • DragonSpirit009

            April 25, 2017 at 14:29

            I’ll gladly join. But during day!

            We should really have a meet up in Bellville some time. I know it is scary to travel outside the 5km radius of your flat the first time, but should try it.

          • RinceThis

            May 2, 2017 at 22:42

            And you should try arranging something with people who are as easy at following plans as Trevor is a self-help book?

            The starting part at 5pm is not the problem, it’s gonna end in the night.

          • DragonSpirit009

            April 25, 2017 at 14:24

            This is the same problem I have!

            April 25, 2017 at 14:24

            Well Trevor usually finishes his milk and cookies at 5:15 and leaves then. So doesn’t have to be a late night…

          • Ottokie

            April 25, 2017 at 14:25

            I am well aware why he chooses to drive there in his own car so that he can leave when he wants to. AKA early when no one is looking.

    Yeah, would love to come, but as others have said, in the true capital.

    I do enjoy long driving trips, though, but I think that is asking a bit much of my family.

    Would love to meet you guys, share a sprite zero, lie about how good we were at certain old games, you know, bar stuff. Going to a bar is important, not just to tell lies BUT also to HEAR lies about past events. Important.
