You know I am making a 'big top' circus tent out of medical walkers. It's going to be magnificent. Striped, pointy with a flag. The roof has the aerodynamics of a frisbee so don't wait till after the windstorm to see it.

Not that big. It's 26 foot radious, (not diameter). Five and a half feet tall walls and the roof will come to a peak. So far I've gathered more than half the walkers and drawn up the plans.

Hey. You gotta start somewhere. Right

No, no no. Circumference. 26 foot circumference. (I had it wrong). It's less than 12 walkers. I get them free from the people that pick up your donations from your house. Normally they would go into the aluminum recycle bin.

I'm having enough trouble wrapping my head around the sewing.

I recall like 1998 stopping by a camp on the esplanade to check out the Jim Rose Circus crew. They were fucking amazing as always. True freaks. Wish you could pull them back out for your camp. Would be awesome =)

Would you be interested in getting any of that crew for your camp ?? I can see what strings i can pull.

I was rather hoping this would be a parody of that sort of retro-circus. Worked for Chicken John, but anything worth doing is worth overdoing.

Hi Killbuck :)
I could be a snake charmer. I've charmed a few snakes on playa before.

you'd probably have to bring your own snake, or ask for volunteers from the audience.

Killbuck, good to see that Apoctalyptika is alive and weird. We (the Burning Band) played for a wedding
gala out your way a year or four ago. and mightily enjoyed the sights as well as your bar afterward.
OK, we are back for the 19th Year or thereabouts. Willing to come play for and with you. We will be
camped within Snowflake Village as the past three years. They usually are around 8 or 9 o'clock, which
could put us far from you. But we shall see. If you have any events coming up that need the Playa's oldest,
original, ad-hoc uniformed ! marching band, let us know. Would love to see you again.

OH YES! You played for our wedding in 09!!!!

Sorry for the late reply, been busy with travel, projects and shows.

YES YES!! I'll keep up on our progress, which is good. We will be in Illumination Village- prolly 300 side tween 3 and 4 or there abouts as the placement gods deem. We will have a schedule soon, but daily freak, geek and absurdity shows at 3 pm. Our main event, the Freak Show and Tell- National Playa Freak Open competition, is at 4 pm, Weds. The 3 00 show will be the warm up!
