Reminds me of that beer commercial where the guys are sitting around the fire cooking fish WITH THE SCALES ON and one of them says to the rest "You know, it just doesn't get any better than this"

Uh actually Larry it'd be a lot better if you cleaned those fish first
2001-10-11 12:16:54 AM  
Am I invited?
2001-10-11 12:17:04 AM  
If you signed up, we'd like to get the money in soon so we can go ahead and reserve a room. Don't wait around too long... We need to raise money ASAP

This should be titled 'Fark and Loathing at Mardi Gras'
Damn and I still owe the Cletus that ate Shaboigan (AKA: The Excellent Adventures of Bill and Cletus, The Longest Cletus, and Throw Cletus from the Train) a bottle of fine booze.
2001-10-11 12:20:53 AM  
I don't expect much loathing
2001-10-11 12:23:36 AM  
Just a lot of drinking and boobies
2001-10-11 12:26:36 AM  
Are those guests confirmed? If they are, I am incredibly impressed.
2001-10-11 12:29:25 AM  
I've paid. Anyone have advice on best place for airline deals?

2001-10-11 12:31:54 AM  
Walken may come but we might have to have a fundraiser to pay his way. He has been notified I believe.

Caroline's Spine has told me they'd love to make the trip and perform. We're working out details with a production company to get them booked at the Lundi Gras concert on Feb. 11th.

Will Wheaton should be there, says Drew.

TechTV personalities have not been contacted yet but should be soon... so no word on any of them.

Shatner... well we dont know about him. Not sure how to go about getting ahold of him.

We're working on it though....
2001-10-11 12:32:50 AM  
If Wil comes and Shatner shows, there's gonna be a rumble
2001-10-11 12:33:37 AM  
Yeah and apparently if we can pay Walken's way, he's likely to come join us. No kidding
2001-10-11 12:35:01 AM  
Maybe Shatner will sing Weapon of Choice for Walken
2001-10-11 12:43:23 AM  
Gack, I can't miss a any college to go to a giant drunken party... or can I? $242 for a plane ticket... hmmm...
2001-10-11 12:48:10 AM  
<twitch, twitch, drool>
2001-10-11 12:48:19 AM  
I thought College was a big drunken party...well, it was for me!
2001-10-11 12:59:07 AM  
Sunday, Sunday Sunday! It's a terrific tumble of trekkies as Wil "The annoying kid who should die" Wheaton takes on William "FARKING" Shatner in an all out battle of the bastardos! You may pay for the seat, but you will only, need, the eeeedddddge. Children under 5 wearing miniskirts get in free.
2001-10-11 01:01:48 AM  
Seriously considering making the trip...Anyone else in the New England area going?
2001-10-11 01:03:17 AM  
Walken needs US to pay for the trip?
2001-10-11 01:08:30 AM  
That's what I said..
2001-10-11 01:11:04 AM  
It definatly takes the pennies of a bunch of white and blue collar workers to get a man with millions of dollars to a "PR Event" for him.

Did they mean pay his entire trips cost or just his flight and hotel? I'd feel kinda jipped if he wanted us to buy his time like a typical event, I mean, jeebus, we hold high his own Highest Practitioner of the Great and Good Walkenism! :)
2001-10-11 01:19:10 AM  
You guys are cracking me up. I don't know how much stock I can put in anything on fark, but I know there has been talk of this, so I am taking it somewhat on faith.
2001-10-11 01:20:16 AM  
If Walken, shows up, I won't be surprised. Which one are we talking about: WALKEN, Christopher_Walken, etc.?

If Wil, shows up, that would be cool, he's hilarious.

If Shat, shows up, I hope he is a lot cooler than what I've heard about him, but I suppose we can always ditch him.

If the cast and co of ScreenSavers shows up. Cool, I love that show for its realism. They don't pretend to have TV personalities, they seem to be real, so they have to be fun. Unless they are faking their coolness, in which case we will summarily dismember them starting with fingernails. ;)
2001-10-11 01:22:44 AM  
Well, I'm interested. Who's in charge? Who's in contact with those in charge? Why only four days? What about arrangements for rides from the airport, or is it cabs? Blah, blah, blah. Give me more info, my mouth is watering.

If its anywhere near as fun as the last farkfest, and I am sure it will be, I think I will make every effort to get there.
2001-10-11 01:24:01 AM  
A party is a party, and when peoples beer, boobs, and Walken, you can expect it to be the straight O.F. (Officially Farked)
2001-10-11 01:25:10 AM  
Will minors be allowed? would somone mind buying beer for me? Mardi Gras should be a national holiday and i should get it off of school. Hmm if i get a job i might be able to scrounge up the money to come. that would rox0r.
2001-10-11 01:27:55 AM  
I kinda doubt Shat will show up. Which is kinda OK with me really. I gotta find his stupid horse farm, I know it's near the castle a few miles from here...

Good chance of Wil and Screensavers folks showing up, I'd think. Wil sounds cool. I don't actually know much of his work (no, not even the Trek stuff!) but that may change if he got the part he just auditioned for (good luck!)...

Haven't heard of the band (sorry) but I'm always up for live music. Hm, wonder if Supafuzz could get booked...

Walken, well, I won't get my hopes up.
2001-10-11 01:29:20 AM  
in all seriousness, if i were able to go and megan morrone showed up, there would be some _serious_ leg-humping going on. can i get an amen from the congregation?
2001-10-11 01:29:28 AM  
Shh. You can't ask us to provide alcohol to a minor in public or get caught drunk off yer ass with FarkBrand Beer(tm) ... tho I can't IMAGINE getting drunk will be hard for anyone over the age of 6, at Mardi Gras
2001-10-11 01:39:49 AM  
I would rather be completely sober so I can memorize each and every Boobie in my mind.. forever and ever.. Boobies.. Drool...
2001-10-11 01:41:03 AM  
yo fubar, did you go to cooper?
2001-10-11 01:43:07 AM  
Walken might come? Drool. Id show him my boobies.
2001-10-11 01:52:14 AM  

Damn, you guys are lucky. I was at Mardi Gras last year, and it was seriously the time of my life. The streets literally flow with topless women and beer....

And they would sell liquor to an 8 year old at Mardi Gras. An underage friend of mine went into the bar to use the bathroom and came out with a whiskey sour in each hand.

OOO OOO OOO They sell 64 oz. beers there too!!! And the women.... the beer.... the women.... the women.... the women....
2001-10-11 01:56:51 AM  
Sounds like fun, too bad I'm so farking poor
2001-10-11 01:58:55 AM  
You know you need to save like less than a dollar a day for the trip ... $100 for 4 days of stay, and you can get by with $3 12 packs of Hamms (harhar). It's the beer refreshing, you know.
2001-10-11 02:00:04 AM  
If you ever wanted to punch me in the face or genitals, I will be there.
2001-10-11 02:02:44 AM  
Damn! I made a pact with myself to never go do Mardi Gras. You baaastards! You make it sooo tempting.
2001-10-11 02:24:07 AM  
wish I had the $$ for a trip like that.....

also wish it was not in New Orleans..... too humid for me...

we need to have one in like RENO or Vegas for us west coast Farkers!!!!!

2001-10-11 02:28:28 AM  
We should do Reno, I, because of superstitious reasons, wont go to Vegas :)

I'm in SJ, who else's a westcoaster?
2001-10-11 02:32:58 AM  
Looks like a dead link to me!

I'm a San Joseian as well (Campbell, CA)

-he who stacks pork
2001-10-11 02:34:30 AM  
Bmartin: If you're coming with and cannot afford airfare, there may be a chance that my roommate and I could pick up (maybe) 1 person on the way. And Champagne-Urbana is on the way from Chicago.

The only thing is, we'd be leaving on the 7th, and coming back on the 13th....one whole week. We're still planning. We'll probably rent a car or truck for the week. All ya gotta do is pitch in for gas, etc.
2001-10-11 03:25:05 AM  
Hey Bmartin, GO ILLINI!!!
2001-10-11 03:41:06 AM  
I must say I am very interested, but I am in fact under legal drinking age. Also, although I may receive much scorn for this, I must avoid drinking due to alcoholism running in my family.

Would there be any incentive for me without liquor?
2001-10-11 03:41:32 AM  
Minos: I'm west coast. Weeest syyyydeee.
2001-10-11 03:42:06 AM  
BuzzW: Beads for BOOBIES, that's my incentive!
2001-10-11 03:45:59 AM  
BuzzW, I come from a family of alcoholics who pretty much all died from it, and even if you don't drink, I would say yes. It's not all about getting boozed up. It's aboot having a hella crazy time, and as long as yer good natured, you'll have fun :)

Think of it this way; Drunk chicks like to prey on sober youngins :)
2001-10-11 03:49:16 AM  
Hmm.... Love to go... but flying out of here is INSANELY expensive (if the airport here doesn't close anytime soon). So, anybody driving past the Erie, PA area?
2001-10-11 03:54:51 AM  
That's RIGHT! I entirely forgot about boobies!

Of course now I would have to come up with a hundred bucks. That means getting a job. Damn.
2001-10-11 04:04:12 AM  
If I had the choice between;
a) Not going to mardi gras, and
b) getting a job for 2 weeks and going to mardi gras,
I'd choose b. Hundred bucks is nothin', 2 week paycheck at minimum wag and you got all the money you need (so long as you don't have to spend it on anything else until then, hehe)
2001-10-11 04:30:49 AM  
I'll go if we can start getting better PhotoShop submissions. (Personal joke)
2001-10-11 04:34:28 AM  
By the way, someone get a hold of Kevin Spacey. THAT'S the guy I want to have a couple of bourbons with. Can you imagine him and Christopher Walken on stage taking questions from Farkers. Cool.
