Voices of CPAC 2017 Justin & Connor & How DaTechGuy's Midnight Court Came About (It involves Stacy McCain & Beer)

There have been many les­sions that have come from blog­ging but if there is one that I’ve learned over the last 8+ years of writ­ing and blog­ging at my own site is this:

Asso­ci­a­tion with Robert Stacy McCain leads to unex­pected results.

To wit one night at CPAC I decided to take a nap for a few hours when I woke up it was around 11 pm and Stacy McCain who I was shar­ing a room with along with Cyn­thia Yockey (A con­ser­v­a­tive les­bian) and Emile the pho­tog­ra­pher (I had the floor btw) decided he needed a beer.

While not want­ing one myself I fig­ured I go and keep him com­pany, so we went down to the hotel lobby area where there was a con­nected bar, two things happened.

  1. I ran into Matt Mar­go­lis who I wanted to interview
  2. Stacy dis­cov­ered the bar closed at midnight.

Since I was just going to keep Stacy com­pany I had not brought equip­ment so as he walked to the Pub­lic House for a beer I went back upstairs to the room to grab a cam­era. On a whim didn’t how­ever I didn’t just bring a cam­era but brought every­thing I had, both lap­tops, 2 cam­eras and my mic setup and two to three extra fedo­ras and came back down.

I went to the bar but there was no power area to set up every­thing. So I went into the main lobby where there were long tables with power sup­plies, Set up my lap­tops con­nected up the mic and viola DaT­e­chguy Mid­night court where I talked and inter­viewed not just Matt but folks with full audio and some video till nearly 4 in the morn­ing was born.

It was a tad tricky, this was pri­mar­ily audio I had to oper­ate the cam­era and the mic Occa­sion­ally oth­ers helped out mak­ing it eas­ier. I didn’t get back upstairs till nearly 4 AM

It went over so well and the next night I was down­stairs till nearly 5. The 3rd night I ran 810 because I had pack and catch my shut­tle to my flight.

Thus I have many hours of video and audio to process along with all the video and audio I haven’t caught up with yet to get to you but the bot­tom line is If I return to CPAC in 2018, I sus­pect the Mid­night Court will too.

All because Stacy, who sat in later when he came back and to his sur­prise saw the crowd and our lit­tle show, wanted a beer.

The Lord works in Mys­te­ri­ous ways, and Stacy is proof positive.

There is plenty more from CPAC com­ing over the next cou­ple of weeks, but what is also going to be com­ing are a lot of hos­pi­tal bills and debt from work that both my wife and I are going to be miss­ing because of the com­pli­ca­tions from her “rou­tine” surgery.

If you are able and inclined to help mit­i­gate them I’d ask you to con­sider hit­ting DaTipJar

There have been many lessions that have come from blogging but if there is one that I’ve learned over the last 8+ years of writing and blogging at my own site is this:

Association with Robert Stacy McCain leads to unexpected results.

To wit one night at CPAC I decided to take a nap for a few hours when I woke up it was around 11 pm and Stacy McCain who I was sharing a room with along with Cynthia Yockey (A conservative lesbian) and Emile the photographer (I had the floor btw) decided he needed a beer.

While not wanting one myself I figured I go and keep him company, so we went down to the hotel lobby area where there was a connected bar, two things happened.

  1. I ran into Matt Margolis who I wanted to interview
  2. Stacy discovered the bar closed at midnight.

Since I was just going to keep Stacy company I had not brought equipment so as he walked to the Public House for a beer I went back upstairs to the room to grab a camera. On a whim didn’t however I didn’t just bring a camera but brought everything I had, both laptops, 2 cameras and my mic setup and two to three extra fedoras and came back down.

I went to the bar but there was no power area to set up everything. So I went into the main lobby where there were long tables with power supplies, Set up my laptops connected up the mic and viola DaTechguy Midnight court where I talked and interviewed not just Matt but folks with full audio and some video till nearly 4 in the morning was born.

It was a tad tricky, this was primarily audio I had to operate the camera and the mic Occasionally others helped out making it easier. I didn’t get back upstairs till nearly 4 AM

It went over so well and the next night I was downstairs till nearly 5. The 3rd night I ran 8-10 because I had pack and catch my shuttle to my flight.

Thus I have many hours of video and audio to process along with all the video and audio I haven’t caught up with yet to get to you but the bottom line is If I return to CPAC in 2018, I suspect the Midnight Court will too.

All because Stacy, who sat in later when he came back and to his surprise saw the crowd and our little show, wanted a beer.

The Lord works in Mysterious ways, and Stacy is proof positive.

There is plenty more from CPAC coming over the next couple of weeks, but what is also going to be coming are a lot of hospital bills and debt from work that both my wife and I are going to be missing because of the complications from her “routine” surgery.
