3rd Annual Youtube Gathering 2009 Hollywood CA

So here's my quick review of the 3rd Annual Youtube Gathering in Hollywood, CA 2009. First off I just want to say - Good F'ing times!

10 AM Crepe Breakfast
So the day started with me rushing down to the cafe, thankfully nearby my apartment. (I have to say I'm on cafe overload these days. I'm there almost every day) Usually I simply get a large coffee and then sit around and make my money back by sucking up band width and electricity.

But what is Crepe breakfast without crepes!? (I really should have taken a picture of my food, I realize this now.)

Anyway I waited around and people started arriving, thank God. For a minute I thought "this is too early, no one is showing up". However it was even better then I thought. there where about ten of us all together and we hung out eating and chit chatting till about 11:30 when we headed out to the gathering.

For the record, I got the 'Savoy' a crepe filled with Nutella and Strawberries. It was amazing.

Noon The Gathering
So as with any gathering, a small cluster of us (mostly the breakfast peeps) found our way to the meeting spot and hung out in front of the stairs to get in as many people's way as possible. Yay us!

In time more and more people showed up. I think the head count was somewhere around 30+ people. We had our share of eCelebs with Katiesopinion, itsbrent, olgakay and Boh3m3. a bunch of seasoned regulars Confidential247, thetalesend, nbwulf, misssarahb and alicecooper

Failpire/Stickam
So our banner was on the front page of stickam. I post bulletins all over about going live from the gathering. and then. Boosh.

So here's the deal - we were supposed to get a Nokia from stickam HQ to broadcast through. But Thursday I get an email asking me if I have a simm card, which I don't (Verizon Phone...) so the phone is no go. So I took my laptop, and set it up and honestly I don't know if I was ever actually live and connected of not. I set it all up and closed the laptop for easy carrying and when I opened it later it had done a full shut down. So I'm guessing I was like for 3 seconds and 1 lurker.

Ok.. let's call this part one. I'm getting bored with myself. So here's some more pretty pictures from the gathering. and more to come later.

Hey Sam, new follower here. I stumbled upon your blog due to various tim and eric searches related to the 2009 tour. At first I was like, "Raz has a blog?" and then after reading a few updates I found out that you seem to live a very interesting life outside of the Raz title. I also noticed that you're kind of out of the loop with the cast as you mentioned, for which I feel great sympathy. Sounds fun being out and about to events and whatnot. I love road trips.
