what's wrong with it?
 
2012-08-20 12:23:26 PM  
With a logo designed in 1992?
 
2012-08-20 12:24:26 PM  
Meh. It's not the 'mind blowing' stage they promised.
 
2012-08-20 12:26:10 PM  
Where are they going to put in the glory holes?

That's a rather boring, un-provocative and perfectly impertinent headline now isn't it?

Is it a coincidence that the mugshot on the bottom of the page looks an awful lot like a Gilded age
robber baron?

ManateeGag: what's wrong with it?


The fact that it is using technology and digital capabilities that have never been used at a convention before. The high-tech stage brings this event to a whole new level and it will help people at home watching TV or watching us through YouTube online to be a part of the energizing experience here in Tampa." Given how most other conventions are run, my guess is that person with a laptop and a few hours an start showing fisting porn during Romney's acceptance speech.

FTA: "The stage is really incredible. We are using technology and digital capabilities that have never been used at a convention before."

Except at every major technology and gaming convention for the last 5-6 years, sure!

With the majestic ways to fark up the Romney campaign manages to find, it's entirely possible.

"I am proud to accept the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Now, if I may turn your attention to the big screen, let's take a look back at the sage words of Ronald Reagan as he accepted his nomination."

"Stick that ass, big boy! Oh, yeah! *slap, slap* Yeah, smash that turd cutter, Daddy!"

Haha in a wheelchair? You're f*cked. The party of inclusion strikes again. No cripples allowed.

The stage has enough flat screens to be a sports bar.
 
2012-08-20 12:56:14 PM  
What could possibly go wrong? It depends. Did they use IATSE technicians, or the local minimum-wage 1099 contract labor?

No physical cripples allowed, at least. The mental cripples are the ones in charge.

No one is going to be using those steps anyway. All speakers will be coming from backstage. So if they decide to roll out Charles Krauthammer or some wounded soldier, they will come from the back.

My guess is a republican donor they paid a ton of money to subtracted I out to some people who took a weekend course at the local community college. Solo option #2, but it will make or a fun time.

Funny.

But, yes, the Tampa Convention Center is an IATSE venue, Local 321.

Yeah, that looks like the White House; what was he thinking?
 
2012-08-20 02:06:55 PM  
Man, that takes me back. The last time I saw that stage, it was having a hammer thrown at it in a mac commercial.

Good times.

Whatever their credentials, you know they're not unionized.

If you've got a high-tech stage that is using technology and digital capabilities that have never been used at a convention before - you didn't build that.

Bad idea. I say we let Jay attack the stage Wolvie Berserker style.

They had giant video walls at the last RNC convention. Big whoop.

I did not know Krauthammer is paralyzed. Well I'll be. You, sir, have learned me something new.
