What we really need is a Casablanca night with Zhu Zhu as Ingrid Bergman, Jelly as Bogart and The Mentor as Major Srtasser.

Fluffer could be converted with a piano.

A full blown German vintage burlesque as the backdrop.

Play it again Sam.

GH as the other bar owner (I can't remember his name) who buys Ricks at the end.

I dunno, I'm thinking of sporting the Eric Bana look from Chopper this year.

I sure as heck put on the pounds for it.

You think I can pull it off with a Lemmy beard and hairy legs?

we may need to change the theme from "Casablanca" to "Pink Flamingos".

as doing a full scale test of a revolutionary energy source requires that all variables be controlled for as much as possible, I fully understand the desire to ensure final project testing operate concurrently with the annual batshit crazy arts festival.

I bet they're going to use this new power supply to make the rocket ship from last year hit orbit, while daft punk remixes Wagners's entire Der Ring des Nibelungen live. Should be quite a show, no?

I'd do anything just to get her to smile at me approvingly.

Final push, you guys. All their gear supposedly cleared customs and I understand it just hit the playa, though I'm pretty much out of communication with our German friends since they left. I'm heading up there this Friday with the 1st assault of the Ein Hammer crew so here's hoping they've got at least the dirt work done when we arrive.

Heeeeere we go!

Powerful experience!

Postby dewnorth » Sat Sep 11, 2010 11:07 pm

Kvon, it was wonderful to meet you on the playa. Also, thank you so much for the wonderful meal you invited me to with your campmates. Your lively discussions reminded me of how much I enjoyed Germany years ago.

And congratulations on what seems to have been a success in bringing power to the playa. That must have been exciting for "all" of you.

Can we assume you will return to the playa next year?

P.S., To Curiousgnate.......I say once again about myself: If I only had a brain!

did you get to meet "the mentor"?
I saw Kvon, only very briefly, but, what a swell fellow........
(his assistant was hot, who cares if she screwed up an installation)

He said she was around, but, I didn't have time to get back.........
I was hoping, though.
