Ha! I’m jealous of you as well. I’ve never seen them again so soon. Actually this year is the first time I’ve seen them twice in a year. I swear, it’s like getting a tattoo… you only leave wanting more.
It was GREAT to talk with Hunter though. Granted, he was the last one to come out, but I complimented his “Cat With Matches” cartoon. He then said he’s thinking about releasing a book with them in.
I held my greatest (longest) conversation with Adam though. I felt pretty special as I was the first one to grab him for an autograph. I asked him about their forums and if they were coming back. He said he didn’t know. He didn’t seem very certain either way, but he did say that when they did have their forums it was the most active part of the site (afireinside.net).
I then played devil’s advocate and said maybe it’s because it’s so easy to connect with social media that maybe forums have become irrelevant. He thankfully said he really doesn’t think that they’re irrelevant. He said he thinks it would be great if there was one central place for AFI fans to go. I then told him about this website. I forget how he worded it but he made it clear that he heard of it recently (I’ve been tweeting them about it). I said I wanted to give it a name as simple as possible, yet powerful with “WeAreAFI.com”.
Welp, we’re up to 8 members not including me or site support.
Anyway, sorry to ramble on. Have a great time! And you better post a recap here! I’ll post it to our twitter and Facebook.
