Wow!  Progress is being made. Society has gone from trying to cure the gays to trying to gaze the cure.

From his website:

Please note for ALL GAZING EVENTS: Must be 18 years of age or over to attend and pregnant women are not allowed to attend after their third month of pregnancy due to the intensity of the experience for some. People with illnesses are advised to follow the recommendation of their doctor before and after attending a gazing session.


Sounds like a ride at Six Flags.

I feel better already.   Ahhhhh Braco....

/ Or is it discomfort, like seeing a homeless guy you just know is going to ask you for change?

I'm ten minutes from that hotel. Any clever IRL troll ideas that won't ruin the event for others or land me in jail?

In Boulder, Braco will be at the Millenium Hotel

Oh, so they have an actual venue for their panhandling.

Those Easter Slope Coloradeans and Western Nebraskans!

In the real Colorado, we just stare at goats. And try not to think of the sheep.

As far as insane cults go, this one sounds pretty reasonable.
 
2013-05-22 10:04:35 AM
20 minutes from there. I am so tempted to go just for grins and stares

"They claim the 45-year-old man's gaze has effected incredible healings"

Does his Care Bear stare work on compound fractures and gunshot wounds to the thigh?

Because those are the standard tests for faith healers.

I'm real near here too, if you get a good idea that needs backup

What a cheap scam. He really needs to set higher goals for himself. Like for 10% of your income, he will gaze in any direction you specify. And perhaps the entire congregation will gaze along with him. But only if you [insert favorite quasi-symbolic ritual here]. In a couple hundred years, the Church of the Croatian Gaze will be an international source of self-proclaimed moral authority. Pederasts will have a new haven from the vengeful attitudes of society. 'Twill be a new era of hypocrisy and willful ignorance, just like Cheney and Rumsfeld prophesied.

Archie Goodwin: He should move to Hollywood and become...

a stargazer.


Back in the early 1950s, a dude named Korla Pandit had a TV show in L.A. in which he did nothing but play the organ and piano while staring into the camera. He never said a word. Women were mesmerized by his dreamy gaze, and the program was a huge hit.

Put up signs nearby with the Nietzsche quote about gazing into the abyss?

It's amazing how we have such an advanced scientific community here (CU, NIST, NOAA, NCAR, etc) and so much woo-woo celebration of anti-knowledge too.

How about I load up on Taco Bell then...

I roll up claiming to suffer from severe constipation then...

I take one fleeting glance at Borat then...

Boom.

seems as reason based as anything else dealing with faith

I wish I was charming enough instead of sometimes vaguely creepy that people would pay me real cash money to stare at them.

Should we FarkParty/flashmob this dude? Or just line up in a row and each try to have a staring contest with him?

I'm in Boulder right now.  There's a big Balkan immigrant community in Boulder.  As far as the hippie image, that's been completely supplanted by hipsters and green Subaru wagons.

Bring a mirror, then ask for a refund.

Hi Boulderites! I'll be charging $4 for my scornful gaze at Backcountry Pizza on Arapahoe during happy hour today.  I will also gaze at you scornfully for beer.

OccamsWhiskers: and so much woo-woo celebration of anti-knowledge too.


Welcome to my hell.

Nobody is from Nederland.  They just wake up after getting high and discover they live there.
