blather_convention
Teenage Jesus Daffy could be the keynote speaker!

(You'd do that gratis, wouldn't `cha?)

Dafremen Ummm yea..but you did want people to stick around for whatever follows the keynote speaker right?

I might not sure if the audience will oblige after I'm done man.
011008
...
Teenage Jesus Aw raspberries! I think everyone would stick. Throw in some funny stories and some in depth astrology information, and your there! 011008
...
Aimee oh daffy, you simply must have more faith in yourself!! I would be more than excited to see you speak! Gracious, I'd probably just stay around in hopes of an encore... :P here have a monkey 011008
...
Dafremen Hey...you're too kind Aimee...but I could never accept your precious monkeys.(Throws Aimee a "still trying to get rid of those things? Well don't look at me chicklette" look)

If you think folx would enjoy a presentation then I suppose I have no choice but to oblige. What is the subject of this convention again? Is there a theme? Let me know and I'll try to whip up SOMETHING entertaining.

By the way...where the hell did DannyH get off to? what_is_art seemed a heated discussion, but it was hardly heated enough for Danny to just disappear like this. There's a beer waiting for you on dafremen Danny...whenever you're ready for it.

OH well, I'm working on a piece about a guy who got out of his car to move a beer bottle out of the middle of the road. I honked and waved at him and said thanks. Even though I didn't know who he was and even though the bottle wouldn't have been in my way, even though I was a white man in a black neighborhood who probably shouldn't have drawn attention to himself, I figured I'd better speak up so that he'd be encouraged to continue being courteous.

We need more folx like that. I mean what did it take him? 30 seconds? What would it have taken some poor schmuck to fix a flat, some kid to get stitches from the broken glass? Yea those things prolly wouldn't have happened, but they could have, and he didn't have to stop and make sure that they wouldn't...but he did. I didn't have to thank him, well actually...I did.

distorted tendencies I think the theme should have to do with stardust and glittery things.

"All that glitters, is cold."
011008
...
distorted tendencies Oh and nudity too. 011008
...
nocturnal I think it should be about me and how great I am. I know, there isn't enough time in the world to cover everything, but fit in as much as you can. 011008
...
Teenage Jesus It can have glitter, and nudity, and noc's awesomeness...all those things...but the theme is blather. It's a blather convention. Johnny West can bring the noise... 011008
...
Dafremen Oh dear. While blather may be an EXCELLENT activity and a wonderful place to "hang out", unfortunately, it makes a TERRIBLE convention theme.

What is blather? "Blather_is_blather." Why thank you florescent, indeed it is, but a_theme_is_a_theme as well and we're still no closer to a theme that is blather.

I'd really rather not get into another one of those "what is ___" discussions again, after all we have a convention to plan and execute...no time for fluffy blah blah until the convention is underway.

I suppose I could go into another "Freedom of Expression" monologue, but aren't those putting you folx asleep YET? Lawd knows I've fallen asleep while typing them on more than one occasion.

"Good blather, bad blather"?
Ha! That would be a speech better presented by our old friend, The Truth.

"What blather means to me"
Pfft...
A) Who gives a flying f**k on a rolling donut?
B) It wouldn't be particularly entertaining.
C) How would a rolling donut feel if you could boink it while it was still rolling?

Well dammit, if the theme is going to be blather...then I really have only one choice don't I?

"At Long Last: Blather Speaks"

Norm I'll bring some porn and there'll be a bare knuckle boxing match between me and 20 midgets

011008

Norm I'll bring a keg of canadian beer too.

lets not call it a convention
011008
...
baby satan let us call it...

Blue Freaks Unite

wait. that sucks shit. oh well. i tried, with half of my ass.
011008
...
distorted tendencies We could not call it anything. We could just all go do something together, or in small groups in a chamber like area. 011008

Dafremen Good thing you waited until June 6th to start the convention, I wouldn't have been able to make it on the 5th.

Official_dog_boot_company_day falls on the June 5th and I miss that for noone.

sixfingers It would be a little unusual for my brain to handle

celestias shadow must.......have.......blathercon! 030915
...
EECP Organize blathercon, and I will make sure that Sage is there.

This is no ordinary feat! He is a slippery one.

It would have to be on the west coast. I believe that the mudders could help me gather up Dallas as well.
030915
...
jane i would want to go
can it be during the summer
030915
...
User24 can we video link me in as well? 030916
...
Bespeckled If this actually gets off the ground, that would furcking (yes, furcking) rock.

And I also vote for it to be held in the summer, as I'll be back in California.
030916
...
celestias shadow dammit! i'll help you organize it if you want, but there's no way in the world i could ever go if it was on the west coast. oh well, let's give it a go anyways. 030916
...
EECP I don't mean to set an impossible location. I simply stated the west coast because I know where Sage is, and I think it would be shameful to have a blather gathering and not bring the creator. 030916
...
celestias shadow no, it's all good. it would be kinda hard for me to go anyways, even if it were nearby.....well, you can def. count on me to help any way i can. *salutes* 030920
...
girl_jane We have people on both coasts...why not make it in the middle of the country-a nice central location... 030920
...
bandersnatch what about people from outside the usa, how would they be able to get there.

and another point about transportaion, how about some carpool scheme to get there? it works well for the hippy gatherings.
030920
...
jane i think it's worth the location, i.e. flying across the country, if it means sage can be there 030920
...
misstree indeed. we do have a good-sized handful (see: what_time_zone_are_you_in), and if this takes past june to organize, i'll be out there anyway.

if i get ambitious a year from now, i *might* be willing to organize something (major moves are not the time to have responsibilities), but it would still probably be another 6 months to a year after that.

...
minnesota_chris We do need some sort of blatherbus or blathervan. 030922
...
screwing for virginity ... blatherbus, sounds like a weapon.

is in quite the militant mood
030922
...
EECP Well, the entire newdream crew could come. The newdream network is based on the west coast.

That means that I, as well as the newdream crew, are in the Pacific time zone.
030922
...
Bespeckled This will never get done you know ... unless somebody on here is planning to organize it ...

Any one raising their hand?
030922
...
unhinged well it seems like milwaukee has already been a location for small blather_conventions and it is somewhat centrally located... 030923
...
minnesota_chris Weee Milwaukee! Give us any chance we'll take it... give us any rule, we'll break it... we're going to make our dreams come true... DOING IT OUR WAY! 030925
