BUMBERSHOOT

WHAT FINER CITY to catch both COULTON and the RUDE MECHANCALS' live production of REESIAN CLIP ART COMICS OF RAGE than Seattle?

NO FINER CITY, for that's where it's all happening.

Plus: MIRMAN, SCHAAL, REDD, m'er-f'ing CROWDED HOUSE?

COULD THIS BE THE GREATEST BUMBERSHOOT EVER?

End of rhetorical questions.

That is all.

greatest bumbershoot ever?

nope, only if you were here too!

Ramona said...

oh HA! I just about fell out of my chair laughing when I saw that you'd typed "m'er-f'ing."

Coulton, the Avett Brothers AND Flatstock? I'm so, so jealous.

Answers to rhetorical questions:

1. Yes: Emeryville, California.

2. If it includes the Beatles?

3. Maybe, but I need to experience other Bumbershoots for a proper comparison.

This is not on-topic, but you will likely enjoy this collection of carved hobo nickels I was just sent:
http://squirl.info/collection/show/314

"These nickels, carved by yesterday’s homeless, were traded for meals, a place to sleep, a ride, or other favors. Some were carved with images of loved ones as mementos of better times, or to honor those lost to time."

Any Chance that you and Coulton could come to Helsinki John?

I'll be here until November, and since Canada isn't exotic enough to lure you, Finland might do the trick!? It's not as expensive as Norway!! Also, there's a lovely public transit system that may have had, at some point, hoboes.*








*not a guarantee.

Hodgman,

This is Fixin's Bar.

I wish I knew what bumbershoot means.

Second thought, I'm glad I don't.

Either way, the words makes me very happy.

Truth,

McGlaughlin

Huzzah! I attended that event.

It was, indeed, good.
