This weekend: AVGN at Magfest

James / January 10th, 2011

Anyone in the Washington DC area, I will be appearing at the annual MagFest (Music And Game Festival) this weekend.

Hilton Alexandria Mark Center
5000 Seminary Road, Alexandria,
Virginia, 22311

Jan 13 – 16, 2011 (Thu – Sun) I’ll be arriving Friday

There is a tentative schedule. My events are as follows.


12 Noon – AVGN DVD Season 2 screening

4pm – “First Blood” with AC/DC Soundtrack. Years ago, I took the first Rambo movie and re-edited it with AC/DC as the entire soundtrack for hilarious effect. Whenever I tried uploading to YouTube, it would get automatically removed, so come see it while you can.

6pm – AVGN Q&A. This is when I make my official appearance and talk with the fans. Of course, you can always come meet me anytime you see me hanging around, but this is when you’ll know for sure where I’m planned to be.

You can get more info at the official Magfest site. (

UPDATE: I hear Magfest is SOLD OUT. Sorry for those who can’t make it.

    thats awesome man. been watching your videos for years and saw little hints of what made me think you were from where I’m from. between the wysp or wmmr sitcker on your old tv (can’t remember what it was) and the Yuengling from the spiderman episode. i’m actually stationed in VA in the navy and from the philly-ish area. and i might head back to va early and since i have no plans i could drive to this event. it was pretty badass man, you been cracking me up for years playing the same shit i did as a kid. though i have to tell you, i used to love that TMNT game.

    thanks for doing what you do man, you are pretty much all i watch on youtube and looking forward to the movie

    James you should totally hook up with some of the TGWTG crew. I think nearly everyone on the site is going to MAGFest. You and Spoony doing an in-person crossover would be orgasmic.

  • January 10, 2011 at 7:37 pm

    I would love to go there just to see the screening of First Blood with AC/DC!

    If you can, check out Noah “The Spoony One’s” different appearances at MAGfest along with everybody else at TGWTG! I heard it’s going to be quite a party!

    Will your wife be recording some of the things that are happening there?

    I really liked watching how all the fans meet up to you. I’m from europe and it may take a while or never at all, but still it would be nice to see the fans and the nerd on a video. Either way I like that you’re treating your fans so well.

    Oh and I think James could travel all over the world since he got a huge fan base.

    I wish James could do a world tour. It would be amazing to be able to meet him in person. If only we could get Rolling Rock to sponsor it……

    James, have you thought about making a UK / Europe tour? Judging from the other comments, the interest is certainly there!

    Looks like the registration for this thing is closed, and they are sold out. Says if you aren’t preregistered, you will be turned away at the door. Sucks, because I live in Alexandria, and would have gone.

    James is treated like a true celebrity now, it’s certainly awesome to have seen him grow in popularity so much over these past few years.

    Come to Europe! I want a Nerdvest 2011 world tour!!

    * Nerdfest

    Nerdvest, must be like a sleeveless T shirt with the AVGN on it, speaking of which, how come there isn’t any? I’d love to see more AVGN shirts, with different designs and such.

  • AikoujOi

    January 11, 2011 at 7:17 pm

    January 11, 2011 at 11:12 pm

    Oh man, I would LOVE to be there for the First Blood AC/DC screening. That video was awesome. The fact that you did that for the entire film is great. First Blood is one of the best action movies ever, and AC/DC is one of the best rock bands ever. That mashup must be pure win. PLEASE upload it onto when you get the chance James!!!

    I can’t get the Tornado Rex song out of my head. You should have Lauriana Mae make a cameo with Bootsy.

    Damn I’m in NY. I had a lot of fun at Digital Press though. By the way James, there’s alot of conventions in countries overseas with many raving fans! I suggest if you get the chance, you should consider it. Many foreigners would appreciate it! Good Luck James.

  • January 16, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    Hey James! Awesome meeting you at MAGFest! It’s too bad I couldn’t meet Mike, he seems pretty kickass too. Thanks for taking time out of your super busy schedule to meet with your fans. I hope you post a video of the panel, unfortunatly, they filled the panel right at me, so I’m hoping this way I could still see what I missed.

    Keep up the great work!

  • January 17, 2011 at 9:27 am

    so just one question? where the f$%k is MotherFucker Mike, BOOM! that feels like a home run!

    Boom! oh yeah baby, James the Angry Video Game Nerd and his buddy MotherFucker Mike – BOOM BOOM!

    Hey James, is the Cinemassacre crew going to start filming the AVGN movie after the 100th episode comes out?
    It seems so obvious to me now. You put making your first feature film as your New Years Resolution, it’s almost the 100th episode, and i’ve been watching the Project Twenty1 Podcast and there’s constant references to the Cinemassacre franchise. There’s obviously going to be something big in the works.
    Oh, wait, is the 100th “episode” going to be the movie?

  • January 22, 2011 at 10:01 pm

    wish i lived in USA
