Stu Horvath: I will be putting up a new fence in my backyard. After being chased by bees and covered in ants while taking the old fence down, I am beginning to understand why all the Portuguese in town cover their yards in concrete. Also: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon.
Chuck Moran: This weekend I will not buy records. This weekend I will spend some quality time with my computer and play games, hang out with my pregnant wife and recover from seeing Clutch and The Sword last night.
Ian Gonzales: Aside from wishing I was hanging with Ethan this weekend (though I’d go with the doner kabobs and Mackesons diet), I will be attending four birthday parties in two and a half days. One of those celebrations involves watching Iron Man 3. I will also eat pizza at some point. Turtle power.
Don Becker: Two words: playoff hockey.
Matt Marrone: Working and eating Indian food.
Ethan Sacks: Seeing Star Trek in London tomorrow. Will spend most of rest of weekend photon-torpedoing my diet with beer and fish and chips.
Ken Lucas: I will not be attending Sam’s birthday party. Though it does sound like fun. Instead, I will be partaking in some board gaming and reviewing some found footage from some past events.
Erik Weinbrecht: This weekend I’m playing at Buddies in Sayerville, New Jersey, on Saturday. I’m also dog-sitting a horse… I mean Great Dane named Toby. Good times.
Mark Mariano: I’ll be selling books and making art at the Hoboken Art & Music Festival.
Steve Haske: I’m certainly not attending Sam Machkovech’s super secret Seattle birthday party this weekend! Or seeing Iron Man 3 or playing the Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut.
Chris Dahlen: We’ll probably hit Free Comic Book Day at Jetpack Comics, to see Kevin Eastman and Ed McGuinness. Probably playing more Tomb Raider. Maybe even get some work done, who knows – let’s not go crazy or anything.
Richard Clark: I mean really all I want is to not be sick and to do nothing all weekend. That’s all I ever really wanted from a weekend. Also I will be avoiding Kentucky Derby-related stuff.
Sam Machkovech: Today is Sam Machkovech’s birthday. Sweet. I’m throwing a house party tonight in Seattle (DON’T TELL STEVE HASKE), then tomorrow, I’m seeing the band METZ lay waste in concert. I might finally play FC3: Blood Dragon, as well.
Brendan Keogh: I will be finishing off an academic paper about Angry Birds and trying to figure out what the heck Dragon’s Dogma is about.
Dan Crabtree: Surviving, and playing Don’t Starve, which is a game and euphemism for my approach to lunch.
Teddy Diefenbach: I shall be playing the role of British gentleman Khover T. Ageante in a rousing 1940s murder mystery dinner party. I will be playing this role to the best of my ability, which is to say, poorly.
