Once again I am forced...I say FORCED to drink beer at the local pub in order to get a wifi connection to bring you this missive.
The tickets are on sale and the re-compression has officially begun!
I don't know what you're doing, but I know what I'm doing.
The Department of Over-Engineering is hard at work putting together the materials list for this year's upgrade to the Pottie Project. This year's goal is to irradiate the poopulation with the good word of excremental correctness by installing a PA system on the Poop Mobile. I used the bullhorn to great effect, but it quickly became cumbersome. Gonzo has the big brain and kehones to re-wire my vehicle so that the masses will be inundated with my PSA's. Last year after-event I captured the attention of people packing up and successfully inspired many of them to donate to DPW Cleanup. This year we want to kick it up a notch and keep people informed about the essentials, in a well thought out, professional and considerate fashion. Ok, I'll mention baby-wipes on occasion. It continues to be a problem, and it's getting worse every year. I don't have any better ideas, but am open to suggestions.
And that's not all. Gonzo has officially signed up for re-writing the exterior signs so they will be extra-adhesive when you read them. Good Musician, give him a beer. If you have an idea for a sign of this style, it is 2 lines that rhyme. ex: If it wasn't in your BODY...don't put it in the POTTY.
Once again, I'll apologize to you all about how off-line I am. If you have ideas and schwag ideas that you want to contribute to this great Project, feel free to post them here. I WILL get them.
I am currently looking for a soft copy of the City that will eventually become The DOE's laminate. The concept is that on the front side it will give the participant's alias and address. and on the backside (so to speak) a map of the city in ABC/2:00 to 10:00 image. I'll buy the card stock cards, laminate pockets and lanyards so that the participant can wear them when they cruise around, get wasted, fall down, and have to be dragged to Medical by their ankles. This is considered by the sub-committee of DOE to be a safety issue, and it is something that I want to do. I appreciate any help you can give me. I just don't have the software to do this.
As for t-shirts, I have plenty this year. I am bringing back, by poopular demand the "Thank You for Giving a Shit" t-shirts. If you have one, you have several points in cool-ness. Gonzo also is bringing out the stencil of Trouble-shooting Man so that any surface can be tagged.
Last year we tagged (with permission) Ranger Igor's truck. We'll spray-paint your clothing, cars, tent, etc. You too can be that cool.
Of course I'm always looking for volunteers to assist with helping the Community have a positive excremental experience each and every time. So if you want to contribute to the Community in a very essential and empowering way, please PleAse PLEASE just find me at Terminal City. I appreciate any support my sovereign encampment can give to get wonderful people into my vehicle.
And Terminal Campers? I love lOvE LOVE you guys, and I hate being so isolated from you beautiful people. If you see shenanigans (stoopid people talking about hovering, etc) going on out in the web-world, just post a note here and I'll get the message. THE GOOD WORK CONTINUES. I truly appreciate your help keeping the message flowing..(I'm hugging your waist, but not in a sexual way). The work is up to us all.
Kisses all around!
