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.

Well, austrianett and I can't troll everyone into thinking we got married again... or CAN WE.

/Never pull the same gag twice.

Starryeyes: Didn't that homeless guy in Kenmore sq tell you you're handsome like his father on Saturday night?


Ha...I still argue he was shouting at the guy walking past, but who knows.


Avon_Barksdale: sorry for the previous post. I have temper issues. Anyhow, I think I saw you the other day near Jackson and Wells.


That was the T-Mobile girl.

/I need an adult.

mcsiegs: This is getting rapey


watching someone's videos and knowing where they work is rapey? ok.
 
2011-06-28 03:21:50 PM

Fondle My Sweaters: Avon_Barksdale: Fondle My Sweaters: Is there any way to put chloroform in the smoke machines so that I can expedite the raping process?

I saw you there at the Vegas Party. You ignored me even though I mumbled a hi and stared at you intensely.

I've been desensitized to that sort of thing thanks to the homeless population of Chicago. Basically, to catch my attention these days, one has to fill out the following Madlib and scream it at me:

I WANT TO [verb] YOUR [body part], [adjective or noun][body part].


or buy her a lap dance :P

AHHH AHAHAH rapetower

There's a funny pictures floating around somewhere on facebook with me putting up with that crap.

I'm in for next year, woohooo!

Also I think we need to be aware of NCAA basketball tournament this time. Schedule accordingly.

@Avon_Barksdale

Listen here, jack. Martin Lawrence once said "slow your roll," and I think it is about time you did.

I know Fondle My Sweaters comes off like a harlot, and is very unrepentant about it despite my many attempts to help her, but you're swinging for the fences without a ball, if you know what I mean.

Yes, that was a great show ;-)

GaidinBDJ: Sweet. Don't know who's doing planning, but get in touch, been throwing around ideas myself.


Unfreakable and I are handling details again this year, hit us up with whatever.
 
2011-06-28 03:37:15 PM
Second the pub crawl, that was fun. T.I. and the Breeze Bar were great, but I didn't care for that kitchy bar with those flair bartenders.
 
2011-06-28 03:37:43 PM
1) who would you like to see as guests next year?
2) what kinds of mini-outings would you be interested in hosting?



1) Phyllis Diller, Abe Vigoda, Gianna Michaels, and Les Claypool

2) An orgy up at my suite....but everyone is responsible for bringing their own canola oil, cucumbers, and towels they can throw away when they're done.

That's why we bumped it back a week this time.

Double Martini was $21.25 at the Breeze. Kahunaville sucked big green ones.

That was the name of it, I had blocked it out. Yeah, blech.

I think you bumped it into Easter.

You better start filling Easter eggs with booze and drugs.

Will there be punch and pie? More people will come if they think there is punch and pie ...

vegaswench: Second the pub crawl, that was fun. T.I. and the Breeze Bar were great, but I didn't care for that kitchy bar with those flair bartenders.


I was neutral on Kahunaville, myself.

I wish I'd gotten in a little earlier for the pub crawl!

All in all, what a fantastic time, though.

aquigley: whatever you do, get a better effing MC for your big Fark event than the douchebag you had this year


Screw you, that guy's got the gig for as long as he wants it.

Yeah, he was a cool guy for a Cubs fan.
 
2011-06-28 03:48:40 PM
Vegas again?
No, sorry.

Voting for New Orleans.

That statement makes NO SENSE.
 
2011-06-28 03:52:08 PM
Yeah, if it is a World Fark party (and not just an annual Vegas Fark Party) I have to throw my hat in the ring with those who are asking for a different city. Preferably a different country.

Possibilities: Sydney, London, Dublin, Budapest, Amsterdam, Rio, Barcelona, Tokyo, Lucerne...
 
2011-06-28 03:52:30 PM

X1's Here: Vegas again?
No, sorry.

Voting for New Orleans.


yeah... that would be cool... the last NOLA fark party had about 6 folks show up. wooooooooooooooooooo!!!

I cast my vote for London.

I was one of 'em...if it was a Farkcon or whatever, there'd be lots more. And NOLA is more fun, easier to get around, and cheaper than Vegas.
 
2011-06-28 03:53:56 PM
*checks calendar*

Nope, sorry, still have friends and loved ones. Maybe next year.
 
2011-06-28 03:54:19 PM

X1's Here: Vegas again?
No, sorry.

Voting for New Orleans.


That doesn't really make much sense logistically, not only for travel and cost of hotels, but also for having enough stuff to do within walking distance to entertain 150+ people for 2 or 3 days.
 
2011-06-28 03:54:36 PM
1) who would you like to see as guests next year?

Karen Gillan

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

Anything Karen wants to attend

Hahaha...ummm..wut?!?!

Never been to Vegas, this might be my excuse.

Get to see how many of you think I'm Drew
 
2011-06-28 03:56:04 PM

X1's Here: Vegas again?
No, sorry.

Voting for New Orleans.


Flights to Vegas from other US cities and Canada are fairly cheap.
 
2011-06-28 03:56:40 PM
We had a blast last time, hope to make it next time around. Might want to pick another weekend 'cause of the holidays though, just a thought.
 
2011-06-28 03:56:42 PM
Also, the poker tourney was a lot of fun!

I'm going to make an assumption here and say that the US probably has the highest number of Farkers than any other country by far. If that's the case, it makes the most logistical sense to have a "World Fark Party" in the US. Seriously, what kind of a turnout do you think you'd get if it were in Rio?
 
2011-06-28 03:59:17 PM

X1's Here: Hahaha...ummm..wut?!?!


How many shows and concerts are running in any other city besides Vegas at one time, aside from NY? You can't really argue that there is more to do within walking distance in central NOLA compared to Vegas...
 
2011-06-28 03:59:22 PM
Can we get Tucker Max to come? That guy is awesome!
 
2011-06-28 03:59:59 PM

And the drinks were free there! ;-)

Plane tickets to Sydney for those dates are only $2,000. GOOD IDEA.
 
2011-06-28 04:00:58 PM
I would love to attend this time.
 
2011-06-28 04:03:08 PM

they are talking about next year. oh mi gosh, U R PRetty. You look like ANi Difranco.
 
2011-06-28 04:03:53 PM
I plan to return to defend my poker title.

There are plenty of places to get mugged and killed in NOLA.

aquigley: whatever you do, get a better effing MC for your big Fark event than the douchebag you had this year

^^^^^^^^ Can we have fewer of that guy? As soon as the chicks saw him, I had nobody left to talk to.
