One of the top ten highlights of 2009, without a doubt.


situation : Girl with megaphone....Screaming

Quote....."LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!"

Location, Esplanade & Tenth


Reaction: Crowd turns to look.

Girl with megaphone demurely whispers into bullhorn:

"Thank you"
breathe deep, the playa is the dust of your ancestors

A gift for the Playa

Dammit, stop saying stuff like that! I'm TRYING to be in denial here.

One of my favorites, that I use all the time is in response to conversations that get inappropriately deep as somebody starts to drag them toward their own agenda and rhetoric.

For example if they start saying stuff like: "... Yes but the internal goddess within praises us all for our being and such-ness, knowing that the third unicorn of winged virtue is..."

My interruptive response is "I like puppies". Try it! When they look at you like a cuckoo bird just popped out of your forehead, press on with "I like puppies. I'll bet if I had a puppy in my hands now I would hold it, and pet it, and love it. I like puppies".

I don't get invited back to lots of "spiritual" parties.

Shifting the coversation by showing them the picture of my flamethrowing penis in my wallet usually does the trick for me.

The little robot character gir has been known for quoting "YOUR HEAD SMELLS LIKE A PUPPY"...

More fitting for being out on the playa for a few days.

"Namaste, motherf**ker"

I think he was reading it from a bumper-sticker, but nonetheless, I have taken it fully to heart and it is my mantra.

This was shouted all over TC in 08. Still makes me giggle when someone says the word orgasm.
