(or some reasonable facsimile therof).
Anyway, I exist, I am here.
I'll be wearing my blue and yellow striped scarf and singing Leap Year carols, just like I did when I was a kid. I wish Leap Year Williams still did mall pictures, though. That would be cool, if only for the nostalgia aspect.
I'm confused... two equally strong opposing opinions from people who are properly involved... ekk! I've looked at the website, and I think my ideas fit in very well, and there is no one else doing what I'd do. I'll be careful, yeah?
I've realized that I actually do this semi-regularly, and have for several years. I hang out in the Haight and call -
"Compliments for sale! Get your compliments! Only 10 cents! Genuine compliments, surreal compliments, quotes about compliments by Mark Twain! Love poems for a quarter!". Do good business, too. I can make almost $20 in a couple of hours (which I then donate to someone who looks like they need the money). Course, I'm not doing it so much for the art as a social experiment, wherein people don't hear enough nice things, and we only value that which we pay for.
At any rate, I'm looking forward to this event, and wish I'd learned about it early enough to take part properly.
I know this is a pre-organized event, and that participants had to apply to take part. I have an idea of what I'd like to "sell"; do you think this is the kind of thing wherein if I show up in costume and start hawking my goods it would be cool, or a major faux-pas? If it helps, I'm "selling" fresh dreams and stories.
because I *heart* The Decemberists, but I'll probably wait a bit to buy tickets. Are ya'll planning to get tickets for the floor, or seats on the upper level. I'll probably get seats, cause I'm a bit lame (in the literal sense).
