Thanks to our dear friend, Mr. Mark Church, The Lad and I were able to see perhaps the greatest live show of my life. Not Desmond Dekker, Not The Who, Not Elvis Costello. Two people who inspire my research and love of my trade more than just about anyone. Mr. Jamie Heynaman and Mr. Adam Savage. Mythbusters live may have been the show to beat all shows.
I read that the they were coming and knew that TheBionicLad, lead cryptologyst for AlliedSkunkWorks had to see them. As the smartest 12 year old I have ever met, the lad needs intellectual stimulii. To say it was awarded would be a like saying "Jamie Like Small Boom". There was a contest for good seats, so I reached out to the social networks to ask people to sign us up. No one did. One very good friend told me he had a hook up though.
We showed up at the venue and saw the backstage door was open. I knew we were on the list but not will-call or backstage. I asked a very nice young lady what the process was. Hearing a deep booming grumble, Jr and I started to perk up. NO WAY. IT'S NOT HIM.
Up walks a charming man in a beret, white shirt, black undershirt and huge mustache. Thrusting his hand out he said "Adam is a little busy, can you come see us after the show"? Ummm...ok.
We were fairly helpless at even finding our tickets.....more to follow
