A List of People We Forgot to Thank

In the heat of the moment and the rush to finish the artwork, I ended up omitting a few people who should have been thanked. While we could just say “anyone not specifically named is included in The Fun Committee”, that’s not enough.

So, in no particular order, except roughly alphabetical…

  • The Academy
  • Acker
  • Bob Henne
  • City of Champaign (list out the names of all residents)
  • Former mayor Don Gerard
  • Frank Herbert (but not his son)
  • Ian McDonald
  • Kim Stanley Robinson
  • Kowloon Walled City
  • The Link Amp God
  • Lonely Trailer
  • Maria Bamford
  • Neal Stephenson
  • Rex’s parents
  • Rex’s relatives (listed individually—first in chronological and then in alphabetical order)
  • Rex’s friends (each one, individually)
  • Richard’s friends (all three of them)
  • Roger
  • Snayl
  • Various pedal manufacturers (all of them)
  • WEFT 90.1 FM
  • William Gibson

That’s all for now.

  • Our first show at the record store, and it was a benefit for a good cause.
  • As the show was close to Halloween, costumes were mandatory. Rex was a Dharma Initiative technician, Richard was Dwight Schrute (or probably more accurately Jim impersonating Dwight), and Andy was Doctor Evil.
