Hubba Hubba was also, but I will tell you about one awesome aspect in particular, and that is Pruno. If you have not read Eric Gillin's fine essay on Pruno, go read that now. I'll wait. ("Remember to feel the hate!")
Yeah, so. Jared wanted to do something prisony in the way of drink specials, so he was serving normal cocktails Pruno-style: in a zip-loc baggie, with a straw. In the hands of Inmate Kingfish in this photo is, if I'm not mistaken, a Mojito. A "prunojito" if you will.
So remember those new bathroom signs I had made? Someone stole one already. They tore it right off the men's room door near the end of the last New Wave City.
Fortunately I had a spare (the original prototype) of that particular sign. But come on, what the fuck!
I just can't have nice things.
As you may have noticed, we turned off publing posting to it a few months ago, mostly due to rampant shitcockery. (There were too many people who don't know the difference between "funny" and "mean". Plus, we were tired having to explain to a band's manager why the audience just insulted the band in glowing lights, or having to explain to people who run competing events why spamming our sign with their own advertisements twice a minute was not cool.)
So John's talk was partly about the technical aspects of getting the thing working, but mostly about the aforementioned shitcockery.
He's giving the talk again at the Web 2.0 conference at Moscone on Friday at 10AM, for those of you who are into that sort of thing.
