Ep15: Demonic Rick-Flying Blind to BlizzCon

Rick w Tom Green

Rick has been legally blind for the past 3 years but he’s kicking comedy butt and taking no souvenirs. Rick won a gig to open for Tom Green (above).  He’s also got green fire on DemonicRick with Convert to Raid on Aerie Peak. He’s heading to BlizzCon on his first unaccompanied airflight since his vision loss. If you’re attending BlizzCon, look for the handsome lanky Canadian rockin’ the white cane!

Anonymous Tangerine Bar Informant

IMG_1043

While doing background research at the Tangerine Bar of the Anabella Hotel, site of the WoW Insider/WoWHead/Gamebreaker gathering, I ran into Mr. Informant. He’s worked at each of the BlizzCon’s and agreed to speak with me under conditions of anonymity, though I did ply him with an Anaheim Brewery Oktoberfest for good measure. Unfortunately our tinfoil hats failed to protect against my operator error and I missed recording our interview. Mr. Informant, please contact me via Twitter @Hawgeye_CTR.

Ticketless BlizzCon: Devlynne from CtR

DevlynneCtR

Dev (@DevlynneCtR) has become a WoW fanatic over the past couple of years. She’s so committed to the game and the community that she made hotel reservations even after discovering that she couldn’t get BlizzCon tickets. At the time of the podcast recording, the best Dev could hope for was the use of Duratok’s ticket for a day on which he was not attending. Subsequent to recording, she was able to score full day tickets for her and her sister. Woot!!!
