Wherein the Wresting is both Strange and Incredible.

I'm told that on New Year's Eve, we generated 32 bags of garbage by the end of the event (well into the next morning.) Devon says:

Typically, we end up with 5 bags in the back at the end of the night, which all fit into the big trash bin back there. This time we had a literal mountain of trashbags and cardboard (from booze orders.) At it's highest, it was eight to ten feet tall, tapered down, and was about sixteen feet long. We took some pictures of it, but none of them really capture how fucking huge this pile of trash was.

Fear not, Eco-Hippies, for the cleanup crew that comes in at the end of the night actually sorts throught all of that, and picks out the recycleable items. I felt sorry for them, for when they arrived around 9AM, the rain was coming down at nearly a 45 degree angle.

This is your last reminder that this sunday (sunday, unday, nday) is Incredibly Strange Wrestling! I strongly advise you to see this show: it will doubtless be one of the top five most entertaining events we do all year. It's been a bit over a year since the last time they were here, and that show sold out, so buying tickets now would be a good idea.


This has been around for a while, but if you haven't seen it, you oughta: Ishkur's Guide to Electronic Music. It's a flash-based family tree of the nine billion micro-sub-genres, with lots and lots of musical samples from each, and excellent cynical editorial comments.

    oh.

    i was half hoping for Kaiju Big Battel.

      Um, yeah, whatever.

      That "Battel" thing looks like the MST3K "sysadmin humor" knock-off of ISW. Lame.

      (ISW's been around since 1995.)

    So what will the other four really entertaining things be?

    I really wanted to go to ISW, but I'm unfortunately out of town for this one (it's my girlfriend's birthday, so it would be extremely bad to skip out on her)

      One of them will be Halloween, but as for the others, I don't know yet, because we don't book twelve months out.
