The Jones Report: It's Not Surreal; It's E3. [NSFW]
Yesterday I saw Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney; Steven Spielberg and James Cameron; and Pete Sampras and Pele. (Pele!) I sat in a tiny room with Tony Hawk alone. (He looked very tired.) I literally bumped into Hideo Kojima outside of the Ubisoft press conference. While walking into a restaurant, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were walking out. My colleague Scott Alexander of Playboy had a scheduling conflict, so he asked me to shepherd around Playboy Cybergirl Jo Garcia to the afternoon press conferences. (See below.) And I rode in a Rolls Royce. (Which the driver couldn't figure out how to start; Jo explained that they make the Rolls intentionally difficult to start, as a theft deterrent.)
E3 is back. And it's more surreal than ever. And I think I like it.
