I work part-time at a Trader Joe's in Newton, MA at night while in graduate school. Tonight, Ken Levine came in twenty minutes before closing with a female companion. He came to my register and bought water, some nuts, a few pieces of fruit, and a frozen dessert for about fifteen dollars. There is not much else to say, I just needed to share this news. He did however, look terrible, like he may not have slept all week. The bags under his eyes were so dark they were borderline black. I'll take this as a sign that the late July BioShock Infinite DLC announcement is coming.

Yeah, simultaneously working on DLC and a blockbuster movie script has to be incredibly stressful.

Should have asked for a photo! Haha, oh well, from the sounds of it that might not have been the best idea anyway.

Don't be a misogynist. They're called "porter women"

DID KEN LEVINE HIRE A PORTER WOMAN TO WATCH HIM CHOW DOWN ON HIS BACHELOR DINNER?

I know of some twitch streams you might be interested in...

Didn't we have another thread where someone talked about stalking Ken Levine at a restaurant?

#16 Posted by Octaslash (510 posts) -

One time I made Ryan Phillippe a grilled cheese. I watched the opening of Way of the Gun on my phone and then stared at him while he ate.

@mcghee: heh. We did have a thread where someone saw him at a restaurant with someone and decided to not disturb him.

Ken Levine About Town!

Absolutely agree. I don't get on twitter that often but I've seen a few stories about him losing it at fans via responses on there. Don't blame him, I've always thought it must be frustrating to deal with the uneducated teenage dude gamers alongside the (probably more annoying and impatient) serious gamers that go to video game websites online.

I'm pretty sure he had his pants on.

Did you like... talk to him?

#25 Posted by Strife777 (1520 posts) -

To be fair, I always thought Ken Levine looked like he hadn't slept for days, perphaps surviving on cocaine and liquor alone.

THAT'S RIGHT GB TMZ! YOU HEARD ME!

If my anecdote leads to GBZ, its sharing was worthwhile. Someone get Scoops on the scene.

#28 Posted by BeachThunder (11846 posts) -

Did his female companion throw him the bottle of water while shouting "Ken, catch!"?

That is almost certainly the case... at least in my head it is.

#30 Posted by Levius (1108 posts) -

Huh, I would of assumed he obtained his groceries from rubbish bins and dead bodies.

#31 Posted by DeeGee (2121 posts) -

This is creepy as fuck. It would be alright as an anecdote about how you work at a grocery store and he came in, but literally listing everything he bought and saying now much he spent is just entering stalker territory.

It sounds like he's at the end of a week long coke binge and needed dumb healthy food to pull himself up from the depths.

You're allowed to work while you're in grad school? We were basically told at orientation they would shoot us with a crossbow if we ever tried.

#35 Edited by CaLe (3959 posts) -

Ken Levine suffers from insomnia, in case you didn't know.

(English is weird.)

#36 Edited by stryker1121 (1403 posts) -

I'm just glad you didn't make a skin suit out of him or anything. At least wait until the DLC is announced!

#37 Edited by Paul_Tillich (173 posts) -

@deegee: The funny thing about information is it is not hard to remember, especially when you are recounting something that happened minutes ago. Also, I'm probably wrong. People sure can take a dumb little post way too seriously.

#38 Edited by I_Stay_Puft (3202 posts) -

Sounds like somebody had the case of the "Logan's Run" remake.

#39 Posted by Superfriend (1545 posts) -

Female companion, eh?! That´s all I got, seriously.

I would have asked him for an autograph though, I love his work so gaoddamn much. There are probably like 5 people in the world I would ask for an autograph.

I told Jerry Stiller he could go ahead of me in line at the local coffee shop, he bought a 1lb of whole beans.

@paul_tillich: What sort of nuts and fruit? He seems like a walnut and pear sort of man.

Me, I am a sunflower seed and banana dude.

They guy's a method writer. He's trying to get in the mind of Logan, from Logan's run.

The DLC is the movie he's been working on due 2016.

I am disappointed you didn't take video of the incident with a crappy cellphone camera with a horizontal orientation and shitty quality.
