everyone, I'm going to check on the severe weather and go to bed....congrats to
all of the winners tongith and 3 cheers for the Acorn Cafe and the rest of the
Mr. Spumoni: Well, let's draw lots and go from there...
Mr. Spumoni: And this is hypothetical.
Mr. Spumoni: If we aren't recued...
Mr. Spumoni: We might have to deal with an unfortuunate fact...
Mr. Spumoni: Look...
JeffParkes: that's all I need! Mr. Spumoni, you still got that deck of cards?
Mr. Spumoni: Yes, Fritos...about that...
Sparky Hardwire: This was a memorable one too...with the crash and all
Mr. Spumoni: Despite one major setback in the early going and an incident or two here in the chat I was generally very pleased. I wonder who we'll be seeing coming to the stage next year...
Racebest: With our little "crash" problem
Jeff Pierce: Oh well...at least we still have Fritos and Snickers until we're rescued, right?
Racebest: That was one crazy night...from the beginning
Jeff Pierce: That....does pose a problem.
munkart: this was great
Eddie: Indeed...thanks for everything, Indy!!
JeffParkes: Now, the most important part of these ceremonies. . .how do we get out of this locked booth?
munkart: I will
Mr. Spumoni: I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Indy for that effort.
BOC42: Silver: Outstanding! *gives Boxy her laptop back*
Lightindark76: But twice...Oh, that's for Chip and Zipper.
Jeff Pierce: I would have to agree with you and Mr. Spumoni, Jeff. Perhaps the best Acorn Awards yet, and certainly one that signals good things to come from this fandom.
Sparky Hardwire: Hope all the winner's enjoy the custom plaques!
Admiral RangerReady: I think we can manage something, Eddie.
Lightindark76: I guess I deserve that singing spot as payback for Dale and Foxglove
Mr. Spumoni: It was certainly interesting Mr. Parkes!
||||||||| BOC42 snaps fingers, appears in jeans and tshirt, does a cartwheel, and changes back to her dress
Mr. Spumoni: We'll be crushed under their nearly weightlessness!
Mr. Spumoni: That final frame is so on my screensaver...
||||||||| Sparky Hardwire stand's up and applauds while watching the fireworks
Eddie: Hey, Charlie...does the Sovereign have a "fireworks display" planned?
gadgefan48: Wow...it was definitely worth the wait guys and gals!
Nyperold: Is that information on the wiki yet?
JeffParkes: This is Jeff Parkes for ACNN. Well, it was quite an award show, this year, wasn't it, Mr. Spumoni?
||||||||| ksharbaugh just logged off.
||||||||| Eddie fires several shots into the air in celebration.
Admiral RangerReady: I did, CR.
munkart: yes it was
||||||||| Nyperold sighs contentedly.
Racebest: what a great GAA!
Admiral RangerReady: And now, as the 'official' ceremonies are complete....leeeeeet's party!!
||||||||| Racebest applauds
JeffParkes: ahh! balloons falling in the booth!
Charles Roberts: Well I got a question who won the Most Improve Author?
Squeak: yes but there are some awards that don't just cover 2006... O.o
||||||||| ksharbaugh just entered this channel.
Eddie: @ Midnight: Miller time?
Mr. Spumoni: No peanut butter please...
JeffParkes: well, he didn't do much of anything RR-related within the past year. Fortunately, the last award is a Lifetime Achievement Award, not just a 2006 Achievement Award
||||||||| Jeff Pierce watches the fireworks go off at the Grand Finale
Zombie Ian: Is it peanut butter jelly time?
Midnight Man: C'mon, say it!
Midnight Man: Oh, and by the way, folks, do you know what time it is? ;-)
Mr. Spumoni: Night Ian!
Mr. Spumoni: GF! We're Time Zone Buddies...
Eddie: Congrats to Matt!
Squeak: also the irony that despite winning that award he was not even nominated for anything else (that I noticed)
gadgefan48: Ngiht Ian!
Mr. Spumoni: You Gentlemen both conversed with Mr. Ploetcher, what was he like?
gadgefan48: It's 12:30 here in the morning and I'm not tired!
Sparky Hardwire: Night Ian
Sparky Hardwire: Congrat to Matt!!!
Zombie Ian: Uh, I'm probably going to run off and try to sleep before too long. That 4am wake up call I got has me about dead.
munkart: it is!!!
gadgefan48: Congrats Matt...that is a huge honor!
Mr. Spumoni: According to The Rangerillion when the Lost Elders return to us it will herald the greastest days of the Rangerdom, when the name of the Rescue Rangers will once again be known in all the land. I look forward to meeting Mr. Ploetcher...
Racebest: Haha JP
munkart: he's here...must I draw my blade?
JeffParkes: That's 5 M's and a P! Congratulations!
Dr. Indy: And now, the finale...
Jeff Pierce: Yayyyy, MATT!!
munkart: thanx Sparky
Midnight Man: And Kan Sune is on staaaaaaaaaaaaaage.........
Sparky Hardwire: Congrats Midnight Man and Master Munkart!
JeffParkes: Oh, the irony of the discussion of Matt Plotecher's works mere moments ago. . .
UrthQuake: if it weren't for him, I probably would not have written anything...
munkart: cool!!! THANX!!!
Racebest: There you go! PLotecher won it!
Midnight Man: Indeed, verily, etc.
UrthQuake: woot! Plotecher takes it!
Dr. Indy: I thought so, too, Squeak. Overdue, even.
gadgefan48: To the 2 rookies Midnight and Master Munkart, congrats on the great achievement!
Squeak: that lifetime achievement one is well deserved
JeffParkes: Midnight Man, Master Munkart
Racebest: Congrats MM and MM!!
JeffParkes: Congrats to all four M's!
UrthQuake: and tomorrow is supposed to be even nastier, from what I've heard
Mr. Spumoni: Here's hoping you'll be as awesome in the upcoming year!
gadgefan48: Yeah, and it's only February (or March)
Dr. Indy: **Major Picture Alert** Hang on to your goggles...
Mr. Spumoni: It's Double M! My fellow historian!
Eddie: There's been tons of tornado warnings tonight.
Nyperold: Ohhh! So that's who wolf and rabbit are!1
gadgefan48: Yeah, it's very hairy near Kansas City
Eddie: @Jeff: As a matter of fact, yes. The other browser I have open now is displaying the severe weather in Missouri right now.
Mr. Spumoni: Okay, Rookie of the Year and the Kashefipour Award are on deck!
Eddie: I still gotta draw Boxy chasing RangerReady with the eyelash curler...
Jeff Pierce: I imagine you're already gearing up for severe storm season, Eddie.
Squeak: *makes note next year to promote FTTL next year for the awards*
Eddie: Thanks, Boxy! I had fun with that...
Jeff Pierce: MM, "Swarm" is just about as good as FttL, IMHO, and one of the very few fanfics that gives Zipper a starring role.
BOC42: Oh, Eddie~ I loved your driving the F250 onto the stage!
Fernando: he's a bus, what you'd expect?
JeffParkes: Well, not right now, but at this point in my life
JeffParkes: What?!? I'm in the middle of reading Swarm right now for the nth time!
munkart: same here
UrthQuake: or sublime, even
gadgefan48: The big moment is coming!
UrthQuake: oh yes, Plotecher's work are sublim
Nyperold: Heh. FttL kept me up reading it.
||||||||| JeffParkes hides under his chair again
Midnight Man: And I haven't read Swarm, WBWCDKSC, and Payback yet.
JeffParkes: excellent! thanks!
munkart: YOU SURE
Mr. Spumoni: I'm just about ready to be done with "professional attitude".
Eddie: Congrats to Fish and Demcio!
Angel Eyes: Anyway, I can't believe Greyhound does not know the difference between a Model A Ford ambulance with a modern ambulance bed and a 1925 Rolls Royce ambulance.
||||||||| Mr. Spumoni ties his tie around his head, Rambo style.
Eddie: Oh, and character/fursona/persona descriptions, too.
Racebest: And Fly to the Light is another ALLTIME CLASSIC in my opinion
Racebest: Fish in Chains
Jeff Pierce: Squeak, I'd agree that more of our fellow Rangerphiles need to go to the RRDatabase and reacquaint themselves with Matt Plotecher's works.
Eddie: Hey, Jeff...gimme a couple days and I can arrange that...
Racebest: Haha me too!
Mr. Spumoni: Hooraay for tradition, eh Double M!
munkart: love FTTL
Squeak: *thinks Fly to the Light is far better than Rythme and Reason*
JeffParkes: I think the only thing I want after this show is over is a picture of Jeff Pierce, Mr. Spumoni and I locked in the ACNN booth, with popcorn, Fritos, and a bag of Halloween Snickers. Then my life will be complete
Mr. Spumoni: I would read "Fish in Chains"...
Midnight Man: 'kay, I must confess that I tried to sneak Fly to the Light into the list.
UrthQuake: and Loneheart too; that is awesome
Squeak: Wow, did Fly to the light not even get nominated?
UrthQuake: thanks Boxy just wanted to express my pleasure in winning a couple of awards with you
Midnight Man: R&R and OMAM, the order is restored!
Dr. Indy: Okay, going upstairs one last time for last two awards--lots of pictures to finish this shindig out...
||||||||| Jeff Pierce heads backstage to deliver the Rookie of the Year presentation
gadgefan48: Of Mice and Mayhem is truly a classic!
Racebest: Rhyme and Reason got up there too!
Racebest: That was great with Fish
Angel Eyes: I voted for Rye on many occasions. I'm glad she won the awards she has.
BOC42: I was VERY relieved to find out you had won Best Drama too....
Squeak: @MM I hope not actually, there are better stories than RAR (not that it isn't great)
Eddie: What'd you do, ian?
BOC42: Yes, UQ? Major congrats, BTW
Dr. Indy: You've got to admit, OMaM is one great story :-)
Eddie: Congrats to Dr. Indy and Chris S and Fish!
||||||||| Zombie Ian just entered this channel
JeffParkes: Uh oh! A (insert names of where the acorn awards are this year)
Sparky Hardwire: 3 in a row WOW~
munkart: also a good story
Midnight Man: Besides, Nando, the next award can only go to Michael Demcion for Rhyme and Reason, and that was released 11 years ago.
Mr. Spumoni: OMaM is the single largest draw to this fandom since "Of Rhyme and Reason".
Midnight Man: Okay, so Fish isn't Best All-Time Artist. But Best All-Time Writer for a change, together with Indy & Chris?
munkart: its a great story
Eddie: No kidding, Mr. Pierce.
Racebest: And to think...we STILL have over 30 members here
Nyperold: That's what I thought!
JeffParkes: Rookie of the year first
Jeff Pierce: Anyone who makes a nearly 250-page CDRR graphic novel is gonna be tough to beat for best all-time artwork
gadgefan48: Congrats to the great story oMaM and Fish!
Racebest: Is that the last one?
Angel Eyes: In the art category, Rye has been referred to as a he. Rye, as we all know, is a she.
Fernando: OMAM is over 3 years old. Fish has to freshen theart to compeat
Mr. Spumoni: Up next then is my favorite...The Natasha Kashefipour Lifetime Achievement Award...
Lightindark76: what up, Munkart
munkart: (dreamy eyed)
Admiral RangerReady: Did the Commies' filter keep Rye out of the festivities this year, or something?
Mr. Spumoni: Not in this reality, Double M.
Racebest: Congrats Rye!
Regrin: Congrats to Rye!
Eddie: Congratulations to Fish! Huzzah for OMaM!!!!
Sparky Hardwire: Congrats to Fish and Rye!
Midnight Man: FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH! FISH!
JeffParkes: Although, OMaM still won for the artwork, so there's still some semblance of order to the galaxy
BOC42: SWEET!! The FISH rules!
Midnight Man: YAYYYYYYYY!!!!
Mr. Spumoni: A remarkable upset!
munkart: where r u Rye?
Squeak: If best artist was the suprise... then I would honestly have been more suprised if any of the others won it. Rye's artwork is consistantly beyond excellent
Jeff Pierce: Congratuations to Rye! And yes, that is some fantastic art she does, she certainly qualifies.
gadgefan48: Congrats Rye!
Midnight Man: What'll be next? OMAM dethroned?
Nyperold: Yay, Rye!
Lightindark76: Rye is an awesome artist
Racebest: OMaM nabs it!
Lightindark76: not a surprise
Midnight Man: What? Rye beat Fish? In-freaking-credible!

||||||||| Jeff Pierce waves a "FISH!" flag
Dr. Indy: And now, for perhaps the surprise winner of the night.. Certainly notable in the history of the Rangerphile order...
Eddie: Lol, Indy.
Nyperold: In a nuthouse?
gadgefan48: Fish probably has a separate room just full of Golden Acorns
Sparky Hardwire: HOORAY for the Cafe!!!
Dr. Indy: <Presenter> is the brother of that guy <Staff> who teaches so many of our college courses...
Admiral RangerReady: I will have to notify Starfleet and requisition a trophy case for Sovereign's bridge.
Lightindark76: what up, again
Mr. Spumoni: He has to have a seperate house for them or something...
Mr. Spumoni: Where do you suppose Fish keeps all of his awards?
Eddie: Hiya, Light.
JeffParkes: Hip hip hip hip hip hip HOORAY!!!!!
