I also love tabletop games, especially D&D and MtG. I'm looking forward to learning what Mastodon is all about!
The worst part about all of this is what's happening to everyone else, not us. The vast majority of UCB's employees are actors, and subsist on a paltry and inconsistent income. And now there's going to be a bunch of them who are out of a job. One of them is getting married tonight. It's all just such a downer, you know?
Upright Citizens' Brigade Theatre has been horribly mismanaged for a long time, but now it looks like it's gonna go under. I made a lot of friends there, I met my wife there, she's spent several years of her career there, and all signs point to mass layoffs tomorrow. We'll be fine, but it's heartbreaking.
Relatedly, if anyone is looking to hire a Producer, especially one who knows digital shorts and the NYC comedy scene really well, I've got the perfect candidate for the job.
