some pics from the Sync in the City event

Last week we had our Sync in the City event. There will be a lot more footage and images coming your way soon, but I just wanted to share some of the early photos that I've seen for those who were not able to join us. Oh, and for the record, the event was wonderful. I was reminded of a lesson I learned last summer when I got to meet up with many of the Sync Book authors in the north-west... the internet is great, but there is nothing like spending time with great minds and pure spirits face-to-face. We must get together more often.

Calling in to 42 Minutes episode #16 with Kevin Halcott and Allyson who caught it all on film.

Me, Kevin and Allyson again that night shortly before showtime.

Meeting Kyle Hunt at the theatre.

Setting up for the show. There's a play going on in the same space throughout the next few weeks so we had most of their set design out for our event. The play is called and takes place in a "Dog Park" (syncing us pretty heavily with the whole Sirius thing)

The place starts to fill up...
...and soon it's show time.

I asked the first question to Radio8Ball (I actually asked about my connection to Sirius).
Here is Radio8Ball host Andras Jones singing my answer to me...

...and here he is smashing a pile of Sync Books with a guitar while Doug looks on.

Allyson, Kevin and Rammer

Anadae, Kyle and Bryan

Peg, Kevin, Allyson, me, Anadae

While Doug and Andras were in town we went on a few adventures...

Here we are atop Chris Knowles' Stairway to Sirius...

...Confronted by the never-ending story...

...and perhaps finding a way out of it. (This was a strange mass of locks halfway across the Brooklyn Bridge.)

If anyone else has pictures from that night, please share them with me. Once I've caught my breath a little, we'll start to look over the video footage from that night and try to put something together for you all to watch. Thanks again to everyone who took part.


  1. I liked the interview on 42 Minutes and I can't wait to see the video highlights of the
    "Sync in the City" event.

    I know Mike Clelland at "Hidden Experience"
    was writing a graphic novel...I wonder if he has a publisher yet ?-)

  2. great stuff. i'm very happy for you all that the event went off so well.

  3. Hey Alan, I just got a new laptop which means I can start getting some video uploaded onto it. We should most definatly get together and share some editing ideas and stuff soon. Also I think Ally has some pics to add as well. Thanks for an amazing time, and all of your hard work on the book and therafter. Great job bro! Ttys!

  4. What Andras Jones is doing is called an El Kabong My Father use to tell me about this when I was a kid... (I had an uncle Doug that was also my God Father who once took a shootgun and stuck it in his mouth and blew his brains out and didn't die right away.... his parents were also 1st cousins if I am correct... Anyways it's a long sad story for me and my family.... His mother and Sister donated his body to science after he died like a month later...) ANYWAYS they would always smash guitars when they were kids and I can't tell you how many Guitars i have El Kabonged in my life, so I feel him!

    Quick Draw McGraw also dons a mask and calls himself 'El Kabong'.... Never watched to much Hanna-Barbera myself, but for what it's worth cool pictures, thanks for sharing.

    A Pale Horse.... Fictitious Religious stigmas everywhere!
