Brainstorm Hugo Party

Whether it's a Sad Puppy sweep or we burned down the house, you are invited to celebrate the 2015 Hugo Awards online with the Rabid Puppies, the Dread Ilk, the Vile Faceless Minions, and two-time 2015 Hugo nominee Vox Day on August 22nd at 11 PM EST.

The Ustream video doesn't work all that well through the webinar, so you'll probably want to run it on your own machine. But there are 243 folks registered already, so come by and bring your own prosecco. Or champagne, if you swing that way.

Our house is dry this month, but my wife insisted and came home with a bottle of Riondo for me. It's not one I've had it before, and she's not a Prosecco drinker.

She wanted to know given it will be morning in Italy, if you'd be drinking Mimosas.

I might have to go out and buy some prosecco. I need something to bathe the newly-incised bleeding image on my chest of you, oh master.

Perhaps I am not worthy of prosecco, I say to myself. Perhaps I should rather be contented with my daily bucket of rabbit blood. But today is a festival of days, is it not? Oh yes, I say to myself. Today I can pretend to be like the dark one. Today it will be okay, if I may dare, to sit in my rough wooden chair and pretend I am sitting on skulls, whilst drinking the drink of the master. Oh yes, I think I will like this very much.

Blogger AmyJ August 22, 2015 5:35 PM  

Have one for me. Bfeeding doesn't go so well with celebratory drinks, unfortunately.

Given the example of the audiences in this years nomination announcements and business meetings, I feel safe in saying that the Brainstorm will have significantly more diversity than the actual awards ceremony.

Have a bottle of Moletto Prosecco chilling as I await what can only be a night of immense entertainment. Never tried the stuff before, but Vox has an excellent suggestion track record so far. As the night starts to wear on, or if the idiocy of the presenters becomes too much, I may fall back on one of my more barbaric standbys like IPA or Bourbon.

Blogger The Overgrown Hobbit August 22, 2015 8:48 PM  

This is Quizzer posting on Codex's account because this tablet hates me. We will be guests of John and Jagi Wright, leaving for the ceremonies in about an hour. Vox, if you want Jagi to say anything in particular, you may want text her. I suggested simply an evil maniacal laugh. The thing you asked her to wear (spoilers!) was a nice touch. We have run into many fans, minions, and minion sympathizers. On the way back to the hotel a group walking by recognized John and jumped right in to introducing themselves. Not the actions of ashamed, hateful racists.

I've posted several items on our site, you are welcome to link/steal for the brainstorm if it will add to the conversation. Have fun all, and a prayer for safety much appreciated. On behalf of myself, Codex, and the Wrights (okay, Jagi has now written something out), good evening and enjoy the spectacle!

We think the same, as befits minions. I just went out and bought a bottle of Prosecco for the same reason. Never tried it, but hey... why not?

When I came home my wife said: "Why prosecco?"

Me: "Because that's what Vox is drinking."

Wife: (looking through the other grocery bags) "Why the boxes of tea?"

At this point, my son busted in and quipped "'Cause that's what John C. Wright is drinking!"

Look I was half in the bag when I started this. I am drinking my own home brew version of Founders Kentucky Breakfast. I didn't gauge it, so I have no idea what the alcohol content is. but when I open a bottle all every fly in ten feet of me dies.

Oriental SJW whose name was announced while I was refilling my drink is demanding "inclusiveness".

Sorry, dipshit.  I demand meritocracy.  If it isn't GOOD SCIENCE fiction, it has no business being nominated for a Hugo, let alone receiving one.

Its the same pattern again and again, in each of these categories it was several Puppy-nominees and only 1 or 2 non. The Anti-puppies threw all their votes to the non-puppy.. its just short of voting No Award.

I recall the virtual presence of Arthur C. Clarke at some long-past awards ceremony and how jerky the connection was from Sri Lanka.  What I'm getting now is as good as I could expect if I wasn't in the hall.  Technology rules!
