Citizens talk about Fantasy Fest changes

Group wants to clean up the racy event’s image


“What you’re asking police to do is arrest someone based on the fact that they’re not wearing clothes,” Vogel said.

Anyone here ever been to Fantasy Fest? It is like Mardi Gras but with less clothes Drooling

Would the former nursing home magician that was arrested for his $850 million dollar ponzi scheme count?

Or should I go with the 15 postal workers who were hospitalized after eating leftovers. Consider

"Authorities say Burks diverted more than $10 million to himself. (Talk about magic tricks) The former nursing-home magician told The Associated Press last year he never asked people to invest more money than they could afford." He forgot to add "to lose". What a scumbag.

This ain't news nor is it about where I live but it is where I am this week.

Mainly for Girly's benefit cos he's got a thing for Maoris and such.

So, breaking news... I just said "good morning" to this guy and commented that his scar looks better today.

If you've ever seen one of these performed up close and in person you know all your hairs stand up and chills go up and down your body! I saw it live in Auckland once.

Why not? You guys probably have more weird shit happening there than we do here in FLA.

Hahahaha. I live in Portland OR. One of our mottos is "Keep Portland Weird". There are bumper stickers and billboards proclaiming this.

Ummmmmm. Lets see. Where to start.

The 2014 Beard and Mustache Championship was held here in Portland. Here's a few photos.

Marijuana was just legalized, so this...

We have an ice storm going on as I type. Actually, ice and snow mix with winds up to 30 miles per hour.

Speaking of weather, I can never talk about Portland unless I post this, never to be forgotten, scene from Portlandia, the nutty people who live here and our lack of sunshine.





I have actually done this, moved around in a park finding small patches of sun breaks.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The video is hilarious and unfortunately brings back horrible memories of when I spent four dreary winters in Ohio. They used to measure monthly daylight hours, one December we had a total of four, FOUR!. I didn't know what cabin fever was until then.

Looks like the contestants in the 2014 Beard and Mustache Championship have been smoking some of that new legalized stuff. Blink
