Fight Club Camp?

Fight Club Camp?

Postby djmalloc » Fri Sep 16, 2005 10:04 pm

Hey, I read in the info guide that there was a Fight Club camp this year. I was dying to check it out but never made it over there. Anyone involved with it or who visited it want to describe what was going on? Were these real bare knuckled brawls going on or was it like ThunderDome?

You may be thinking of the Pillow Fight Club. It was a big, elevated trampoline surrounded by a mesh enclosure and filled with dozens of white pillows. The fights were extremely vigorous, leaving the combatants exhausted and exhilarated. Great concept and wonderful execution!

No, I heard about them too. But supposedly there was also a real Fight Club as well. Either that, or someone was pulling my leg. ;)

No...you're spot on. I got a first-hand report from a camp mate who had been there and I was intrigued, but sadly was also liberally inebriated and so forgot to ask later about it. BUT! It existed, so keep asking.
Thanks to Addis, I had more free time.

waaaaaait a minute. was that the white inflatable funded bubbles of BULLSHIT from 2004? some ass kicking would have made that installation about 100 times more enjoyable.

No, I saw a big trampoline with many pillows in it and there happened to be only one person jumping around in them, looked like he was having a blast!

The first rule about Fight Club, you do not talk about Fight Club.


Look for upcomming Project Mahem announcements from Apokiliptika.

A real fight club would just be a dumb idea. Sorry.

Fight Club was hosted in front of Ubercarney by our own TimTV. He intends to run it pretty much the same next year. Show up around 7pm.

BTW, it wasn't a camp, just an event. In past years fight club was held at the Temple of Atonement, but they weren't here this year.

LOL.

Talked to somebody last year who said he "won" his fight, but the bruises and sore muscles he sustained in the match detracted substantially from his Burn.

Like, DUH!

But it was real.

Heh Heh.
I usually go out of my way to keep from experiencing pain.
But,
It takes all kinds.......(to make the world go round?)...

There was a fight club in the Philippines where you and your friends
could eat and drink free if one of you could whip "Joey".... a kangaroo in 3 rounds.

A buddy of mine tried it. He still cringes about the ass-kicking he got.....
It took him months to heal ....

Pain is such a.....Pain.
And....well,....maybe an indicator that we`re still alive??


Funny how some people go out of their way to experience it.

The first rule of Pillow Fight Club is: You MUST talk about Pillow Fight Club.

The second rule of Pillow Fight Club is: You must talk about Pillow Fight Club through a megaphone.

The third rule of Pillow Fight Club is: Safety Third.

The fourth rule of Pillow Fight Club is: Take off your shoes and glasses.

The fifth rule of Pillow Fight Club is: Your cock is not a costume (or a pillow).

The sixth rule of Pillow Fight Club is: You spill bodily fluids, you clean them up.

The seventh rule of Pillow Fight Club is: No pictures without permission.

Ready....FIGHT!

(I don't know about the bubbles of lameness, but I had a large amount of fun narrating, spectating, and dominating my challengers at Pillow Fight Club. It's harder than it looks!)

No info on actual fight club.
