Hello everyone!

Been traveling a lot lately. I probably shouldn't even start a note saying that, it'd only be news if I wasn't.

Wanted to give folks a heads up, mark out your calendars for Mar 30 - Apr 1 next year in Las Vegas for the 2nd World Fark Nascon Meetup Name To Be Determined Later. We're getting a much earlier jump on things this time. Probably going to be at Treasure Island again since they did right by us, but we're still gonna bid it out to make sure we're getting the best deal for you. We should have location locked down much sooner than we did last time.

We're also planning on leaving a lot of free time for folks to come up with their own mini-outings; this worked extremely well last time. So on that note, be thinking about a couple of things:

1) who would you like to see as guests next year?
2) what kinds of mini-outings would you be interested in hosting?

Run those around in your head and we'll revisit this in a month or so.

I was just in Las Vegas.
It's lame, do it somewhere else.

I'd like to see myself there, as a sponsored guest.

I think everyone here agrees.

An early note about the party would be October.

This is like selling Christmas trees in February
 
2011-06-28 02:18:59 PM  
I'd like to make it to Vegas this time around.
 
2011-06-28 02:19:21 PM

2) What kinds of mini-outings would you be interested in hosting?

I would like to have another pool party. Nothing like drinking yards of bloody maries when your head is screaming bloody murder.

We did a few of our own mini outings from Vegas during this year's party:

-The Grand Canyon (holy fark that was a long drive)
-The Gun Store (my god was that fun!)
-The Valley of Fire (wow, that was amazing!)

Wandering the Strip after dark is an event unto itself.

I enjoyed Red Rock Canyon and Mt. Charleston and Hoover Dam. I wanted to do The Gun Store and Pawn Stars.
 
2011-06-28 02:24:30 PM

Wait, you mean this place will help me get laid?

I mean Vegas certainly should have enough alcohol, right?

IRELAND doesn't have that much alcohol.
 
2011-06-28 02:28:21 PM  
I would like there to be some sort of Katy Perry lookalike contest that we could have Katy show up to and lose.
 
2011-06-28 02:28:46 PM  

mcsiegs: An early note about the party would be October.

I'm an extremely habitable environment for Christmas trees.
 
2011-06-28 02:29:19 PM  

Sir Cumference the Flatulent: IRELAND doesn't have that much alcohol.


I have hope, I mean you were able to find someone drunk enough to marry you
 
2011-06-28 02:29:26 PM  
 
2011-06-28 02:29:42 PM  
Wait I think I want the Bear from BJ and the Bear, whichever one is the chimp. I hope you didn't already hire the talent.
 
2011-06-28 02:32:33 PM  
Yes, yes yes yes.

I am ON BOARD.

This time with maybe 300% less drinking, so I'm not completely blasted by 4pm.
 
2011-06-28 02:33:58 PM  
I might try to go. It depends on how weird this place gets before the date.
 
2011-06-28 02:35:02 PM  

imapirate: I'd like to make it to Vegas this time around.


Yep. I'm gonna start saving now!

Prepare yourselves, Farkers!
 
2011-06-28 02:35:07 PM  
oh, also: sponsor me.

DO IT.
 
2011-06-28 02:35:49 PM  
Christopher Lambert. I want to tell him in person just how rotten his acting is. Since he's blind as a farking bat I'll just run back to my room and change my shirt real quick. *boom* mission accomplished

februarymakeup: oh, also: sponsor me.

DO IT.


Show us your tits, sweetie.
 
2011-06-28 02:38:00 PM  
I actually had a good time in Las Vegas. It is as if the computer interface is what makes you all ignorant and foolish instead of your own merits.
 
2011-06-28 02:38:05 PM  
Also - what about getting Naomi Watts? =|
 
2011-06-28 02:38:30 PM

Starryeyes: Can we get Neil Patrick Harris?


Did you see his commercial where he is getting a massage by a man and drops his sushi roll? At the end, he grunts like something hurts, and being the sicko I am, I imagine he just got UDIA
 
2011-06-28 02:41:16 PM  

brap: Wait I think I want the Bear from BJ and the Bear, whichever one is the chimp. I hope you didn't already hire the talent.


You are thinking small. I want the black guy and the bar manager guy from Magnum PI. TC and Rick.
 
2011-06-28 02:41:19 PM  
Can we have it without liters?
 
2011-06-28 02:41:27 PM  
Rape Tower: i'll be bock ...
 
2011-06-28 02:41:44 PM  

GrahamManning: Push yourself, you pansy


Or I could just actually, I dunno, eat something more than once every 20 hours, so that the gallons of booze I consume doesn't completely wreck me so fast.
 
2011-06-28 02:42:18 PM  
I'm going to do my damnedest to make it, felt sad I couldn't this year.

1. I like the suggestion about the Mythbusters and Alton Brown.

2. Erm... ???
 
2011-06-28 02:42:31 PM  

unremarkable asterisk: Can we have it without liters?


Y'know, several minutes ago, I would've thought that was a terrible idea.

but now I like it.

huh.
 
2011-06-28 02:43:26 PM  

Sir Cumference the Flatulent: too-old: Wait, you mean this place will help me get laid?

I'm going to be in Amsterdam for Queen's Day next year. Maybe we should talk about a Euro Fark party at the end of April?

Why should these farkers have all the fun hangovers?
 
2011-06-28 02:45:42 PM  
Aww, dammit, my niece's bris is that weekend..
 
2011-06-28 02:45:42 PM  

februarymakeup: unremarkable asterisk: Can we have it without liters?

Or at least a private TF room.
 
2011-06-28 02:46:15 PM  
Drew: Get Julia Roberts!

/TMLO is gonna be PISSED
 
2011-06-28 02:48:00 PM
