But yes, it all started on a normal Friday except that the Manchester Central expo center was about to become riddled with sweat, autism, more sweat and hair. And indeed it did; our first bit of spaghetti begins with an unnamed man (literally unnamed - nobody knows his real name :c) who managed to get into the guest room. He then proceeded to harass guests until he was asked for his wristband where he further lied until BUCK staff worked out he was full of shit and banned him from the convention. Which is some evidence of "how2runcon"'ing from the organizers since their #Proffessional interview with HN.
Back from the spaghetti, the first Friday of BUCK (the "Summer Sun Celebration") ran incredibly well and according to some friends who had gone to other cons it really did "make other small horse convention music events look like school discos". Here's a picture because this is supposed to be a semi serious write up:

So ye, that was great. Some very good sets from very good musicians, including the ones with the guitars, the ones with the dubsteps and the one who said thank you so much we wanted to start a drinking game. Great first night, although I got back at 1am and I was not really feeling the idea of getting up at 8:30 am to start walking around all day again. The first actual day of the con was okay, however it seemed to be the general feel that the events weren't very good. Including the terrible panel that was lead by Knighty who was really not being discreet about his poundland deal.
|Knighty wearing a poundland badge. His panel was just him talking about poundland. 0/10 would not panel again.|
UH RIGHT. It was now the charity auction. And to nobodies surprise, Knighty had bought a Derpy Plush for about $1500 (820 GBP). According to an official BUCK source, upon investigating the affordability to prevent credit card fraud, it was funded through his poundland deal therefore making the Derpy Hooves technically property of Poundland. Anyway so yeah I got a bit ill on Saturday as my legs were pretty much jelly and I was struggling to stand so I went home and missed the lunar eclipse. Apparently TeiThePony's set was good according to an expert source. Can't comment on something I didn't see yo, although that is pretty much how this entire sight is ran.
SECOND DAY. And it was a lot calmer. I'd literally gone to nothing except the Dave Polsky panel where he probably forgot this is a pony convention and not a philosophy lecture. And his Q&A was full of lots of spaghetti as well. Unfortunately nothing beating the world record of "most spaghetti panel question":
It was only towards the ending ceremony where all the BUCK staff got onto the stage and sang and danced to their barbaric, depriving ritual song that the convention had ended. And then I went home.
So on that note, I rate BUCK 8/10 spaghettis. The SSC was great, it was great to see my friends but the venue and schedule needs vast improvements in any future events.
