We had our first big World Fark Party last weekend. My expectations were definitely above average, but what actually ended up happening blew away the best possible outcome for the weekend. A ton of people, lots of friends connecting, laughter, and enough alcohol to fill Lake Mead.

For those of you who weren't able to make it: first, I hope you can make it next year because we had a kickass time. Second, Naskar's parents and his brother Cam were thrilled and honored to be a part of the festivities, and they let everybody know that they're working with us to set up a community foundation in his name. More details on that later when we have them.

Some thanks need to go out to those who agreed to come hang out with us, most notably our special guests: Bill Corbett of MST3K and Rifftrax, and Paul and Storm, who tore the roof off the sucker. I think I heard the same thing from at least a couple dozen people: "Man, I'd heard their stuff before but I had no idea how good it was in person." Also to Alex with Neatorama, who hosts our Fark Shop provided a lot of free schwag for us and was kind enough to help us get the shirts printed. The Nas-Con shirts will be available in a few days for those of you who wanted them but weren't able to get them on Saturday or Sunday. The staff at Treasure Island in Las Vegas was excellent and treated us right. Especially the five guys at the craps table friday and saturday night after midnight. I woke up both nights hung over with a full wallet AND my butt wasn't bleeding - a Vegas win if there ever was one.


A lot of members of Fark took the lead in helping us get this off the ground and arranging some events. Thanks to Witchydiva for organizing the Vegas Strip Pub Crawl, to smells_like_meat for setting up and managing the Poker Tournament, to aquigley for being our emcee at the Saturday event. Thanks also go out to Yzziefrog for helping with the shirt designs, to E-Brake for offering to help with shirts and setting up the Sunday brunch, and to cyberchp for volunteering to man the sales table. Also thanks to punkrockgirl and Unfreakable for setting up and managing the event.

To everybody who took time out of their schedule and spent their hard-earned money to get here, I hope you had a blast. Everyone I talked to sure as hell did. You all made this party what it was, because you all make this community what it is. I can't say that in any other way without sounding like I'm just spouting sentimental BS, but every word of it is true.

For those of you who weren't able to make it: first, I hope you can make it next year because we had a kickass time.

Wait this is seriously going to be a yearly thing?

On April 1, The first annual Farkcon poker tournament was held at the poker room of the TI resort in Las Vegas,

Nevada. The buy in was $65 and there were 51 players.

About half the players took the poker lesson offered by TI.

Here's a link to a picture of the final table.

Link (new window)

I don't know everyone there, but here goes: koalaface, witchydiva, Zandi, Syrynxx, Carol, unknown, Sgt. Cyanide,

Paul from Paul and Storm, unknown, dealer and Aquigley.

The winner was Syrynxx in a hotly contested head's up match with Aquigley. They both took home $950 for their

efforts with Syrynxx claiming the coveted trophy. In third place was Paul, who received $450.

The staff at TI's poker room was great as were Nopokerface, Vegaswench, Cyberchp and Semper Gumby who helped make

it all work.

It was a blast. See you all next year.

oh please eyehate I only mashed them on you like 63 times
 
2011-04-05 03:32:22 PM  
I realized I was a feminist the first time I gave myself permission to be angry with men. My first boyfriend in high school spent a lot of time undermining me in ways that felt like love. He'd tell me I was pretty but not sexy, and then have sex with me. He'd tell me I was smart, but then laugh with his brothers at how I was "ditzy." He'd look deep into my eyes and tell me the world was ours, and how much he loved me, then tell me I was being crazy when I'd call him more than he liked, or when I'd ask for anything at all. He gave me what he wanted to give me when he wanted to give it to me, and I got to tell myself over and over again that it was what being in love was like.

That guy broke my heart when he broke up with me, and I felt like I lost my whole world. He made me feel like my world wasn't any bigger than him and that any attempts to make it so were a result of me being "crazy." After that I gravitated towards any guy who made me feel validated for a few minutes. I wanted to be friends with guys only-I told myself that women were catty and shallow, and that I just got along better with guys. Looking back on that time, I was desperately unhappy and also desperate to be someone who mattered. And the only people I knew who mattered were men.

I sat through marathon sports sessions and pretended to care. I cooked and I cleaned and I fetched beer and I sat by while guys made comments about other girls ... girls who weren't me, because I certainly wasn't that girl. I wasn't stupid and slutty and weak, I wasn't obsessed with Sex and the City and bad alcohol, and I certainly didn't get easily offended like all those other girls did, by stuff like porn and strippers and sexual comments.

I could keep that face on until I couldn't. And that's when the shortfalls of these guys became painfully apparent. When I missed my first boyfriend so much, I cried during sex with a one night stand and the guy asked if I was OK-and when I said yes, he kept going while I kept crying. When a guy cheated on his girlfriend with me and-nevermind that I was drunk and he was four years older and it was my first week of college-she stayed in a relationship with him but made sure everyone we knew heard about what an evil, dirty, boyfriend-stealing slut I was. When I was too drunk to drive home and asked a male acquaintance to drive me, and we had sex that I don't fully remember-but he told everyone. And this stuff happened again and again, until it culminated in a night when at a fraternity party, someone grabbed a microphone and asked if anyone wanted their turn at "super sloppy seventeenths" with me.

I dropped out of school then. I felt so worthless I wanted to die. Everyone had figured it out: I was weak, worthless, stupid, and worst of all, a total whore. And after I hit rock-bottom I started to wonder why. Why was it that sex meant that something had been taken away from me and given to some guy? Why was it that guys could shamelessly talk about their sex lives, but I was supposed to be ashamed of mine? Where exactly did this slut label that was breaking my heart come from?

And then the first guy came back. After another painfully draining relationship with him, I got the opportunity to tell him to go fark himself, to get his things out of the house and leave me to my life. I finally started living for myself. And I realized that straight white men are given power, but the rest of us have to find ours. That made me so angry and so determined at the same time, and something inside me fundamentally changed: I stopped accepting things for what they are and started asking questions about why they are that way. This changed my career trajectory in an insanely positive way. It changed how I relate to men, which led to a fantastic, egalitarian relationship with a man I plan to marry (I'm the one who proposed). And perhaps most importantly, it led to some deeply rewarding friendships with other women. whom I stopped viewing as the enemy in my quest for male validation and started to see as fellow survivors of the patriarchy.

I found feminism like some people find religion. It changed my life and it made me whole.

Unfreakable: Short answer on the "will this be an annual event" thing:

We would love to make this a regular event, and we're going to try and do it again next year. However, we need to make this financially viable so that we can at least break even, money-wise.


If you give more notice to the potential attendees and the hotel, it will probably a LOT more financially viable. Granted, this year, because of how the event came to be, the short notice was understandable. I ran and organized an annual convention out of Dallas for 4 years, the only reason I stopped was because I moved away from Texas. The first year is never profitable. The second broke even for me, and I made money the third and fourth event.

Oh because I do have a pizza charge on my credit card, yet no pizza box in my room, or recollection of eating pizza.

That would make sense if I did something like that.

I mean, what else was I going to do in Vegas? It's not like there were strippers to see, gambling to do, or vodka tonics to be consumed.

SO MUCH FUN. So glad I met you!

I'd planned on going, ended up going to Seattle (a few weeks earlier) instead.

In a weird way, that decision worked out really well for me.

All the same, it would have been nice to see you all.

I am SO glad I have two days off before I go back to work, AND came back with plenty of cash (about half of what I took to vegas) to put back in the bank.

I seriously can't wait until next year, plus, next year, we won't have the awkward adding-folks-as-friends-on-facebook-and-hoping-you-got-the-right-person.

I'm pretty bad with names and faces as it is, the copious amounts of alcohol aren't helping

We would love to make this a regular event, and we're going to try and do it again next year. However, we need to make this financially viable so that we can at least break even, money-wise.

Kansas. Cheap. And where I am :D


While I'm sure Kansas is lovely, especially the miles and miles of corn (and having done some naughty things in corn fields as a young'un, I can say I have a great appreciation for corn), I do believe than only some place like Vegas can handle a group of this 'stature'. Then again, maybe Drew could have it at his house.

vegas makes the most sense. They're used to crazy like us, they easily have the capacity to handle crazy like us, and even someone from a remote place like Edmonton (like we're from) are able to get good flight and hotel deals/packages.

I know this year was operating at a loss for the people organizing, but if any city is going to make it financially viable, Vegas seems like it's right at the top of the list.

Hopefully the next time around the contracts and crap can get worked out without any b.s.

also, just a suggestion, you all could have probably charged a little more even for the con portion. If I'm already dropping like 1500 bucks to go on this sort of trip, an extra 15 bucks per person isn't a massive dealbreaker. Not everyone is in the same boat on this I'm sure, but that's just my opinion.


Anyways, I'm already working out a new financial plan to make sure I'll have the funds for next time.

frickinsweet: I agree...I would have paid more for any or all of it.


absolutely, If we're getting into triple-digits per person that might become an issue, but even upwards of 70-80 bucks to help cover costs is not THAT BAD. I've paid a lot more to go to far less entertaining events that I go to yearly as it is.

I also would not have minded shouldering more of the drink cost/a "private event cover charge" at kahunaville for instance, although I will admit half-price drinks made things real easy for everyone.

I'm sure it'll be figured out though. A lot of what happened wasn't really planned, and if there were more planned events maybe more cost-sharing could be built in. I also thought the poker tournament was a fantastic value, so there might be some wiggle room there too.

i don't want to price ANYONE out of going to this, but I just think there's some wiggle room on per-person cost to help make it at least a break-even event.

I feel the same way (I know you and I talked almost not at all compared to some other people).

Well, a couple of things that we already identified that drove the costs up for us:

1) The event didn't really get rolling soon enough, and we didn't push hard enough for commitments from people who came to entertain, and we scheduled them later, when flights were more expensive.

2) We lost our negotiating position by starting late in the year and then getting dicked around by the Wynn on the contract. That'll be the first thing we hit for next year's event. It also meant that we were struggling to get enough rooms sold, since so many people who planned to go had to make arrangements not knowing if/when ours would be worked out.

3) Not having everything squared away early means that some people who were interested simply didn't have enough time to save for the event and/or make arrangements at home and at work.

These are the main things right off the top of my head, not even close to a complete list. I liked Kahunaville for its convenient location in the hotel, but otherwise it was too loud for many of us who were just meeting people for the first time. The pub crawl worked much better as a way to mix and meet, although the drinks were noticeably more expensive.

Unfreakable: Well, a couple of things that we already identified that drove the costs up for us:

1) The event didn't really get rolling soon enough, and we didn't push hard enough for commitments from people who came to entertain, and we scheduled them later, when flights were more expensive.

2) We lost our negotiating position by starting late in the year and then getting dicked around by the Wynn on the contract. That'll be the first thing we hit for next year's event. It also meant that we were struggling to get enough rooms sold, since so many people who planned to go had to make arrangements not knowing if/when ours would be worked out.

3) Not having everything squared away early means that some people who were interested simply didn't have enough time to save for the event and/or make arrangements at home and at work.

These are the main things right off the top of my head, not even close to a complete list. I liked Kahunaville for its convenient location in the hotel, but otherwise it was too loud for many of us who were just meeting people for the first time. The pub crawl worked much better as a way to mix and meet, although the drinks were noticeably more expensive.


Yeah, all of that. But see what we learned this year? And it was totally enjoyable despite the drawbacks.

Absolutely. And if we do it again at TI next year, a lot of people who were there this year already know the layout and can find each other a lot more easily. This year was tough because a lot of people didn't know who to look for.

I didn't stay at TI, so when everyone was at Cabana 6 at the pool I couldn't get in. Until I accosted Drew at Kahunaville sucking up oxygen and borrowed his room key :)

It helped that Drew bought beers for people a couple times, though. Even if it was beer-flavoured water (AKA Bud Light). But hell, I'm not going to complain about free booze, especially if Drew's buying.

I'm pretty sure he was turning the volume up as the night went on too, but that might also have to do with how drunk we all were.

I know that simply charging more isn't the only answer, since the negotation stuff really dicked fark over on the costs, so with that in mind if you guys can get it all figured out without greater costs on the participants then I'll buy you all a couple of rounds next time!

this was, literally, my first time to vegas. I got lucky that I had witchydiva's contact information so we could catch up to people on the thursday. Next time around it'll be easier (such as, designating the breeze bar as the meetup point for whatever we do from the get-go) for those that went this year.

Also having coordinators for events worked EXTREMELY well this year. If the same folks aren't able to do so again next year, I hope we're able to find some people to do just as good of a job at it. Big props to everyone that kept updating facebook and doing back and forth texts/e-mails to bring people into the party rather than leave them wandering.

Liquid courage doesn't make me an extrovert, though it does help me relax that driving need I have to be accepted by those I interact with. Chances are I'll show up have some drinks and sit around playing my PSP because I don't know how to strike up a conversation. Then you guys will think I'm a total retard and accuse me of being some sort of liberal teabagger bush supporting Clinton lover with a penchant for Ke$ha music and buggery who believes the world is flat and actually knows what a Bieber is.

Yep, the only two laptops I saw outside of hotel rooms were the ones Joe and I used for presentations... and Drew and Mel had iPads out at various points...

Smartphones, on the other hand, were pretty much surgically attached to everyone's hands (mine included), as it was the easiest way to keep track of where everyone was... at least when the cell networks were behaving.

It was my first time in Vegas and I had a blast. I think my week-end was made when we walked through Harrah's and saw 5 guys in chicken suits drinking beer at the bar.

The strip was great but Fremont Street was also a blast and a lot cheaper to drink and eat. Mind you, we were at the expensive end of the strip, so that did not help. That, and the cab rides really killed us but it was totally worth it.

It was great to meet everybody, that was the most fun I've had in a long time.
