Cool Date -- readings by twitter people
posted July 6, 2012 12:31 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Tue July 10 at 9:15 PM, Cake Shop
152 Ludlow St, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Cool Date: I'll be reading a monologue by your dad (who loves you kids very much, and who's maybe cooler than you kids give 'im credit for) at Cake Shop. Also appearing: @arealliveghost, @leh0n, @PIZZASHAMAN, @dry_hugs, and an in absentia piece by @THPD. The whole thing seems like it'll be a mixture of standup, poetry, and performance art, which frankly sounds like a perfect nightmare to me. It's seven bucks and 21+. You can RSVP on Facebook if you like.

I'm literally vomiting with Joy. (Joy is my father's mistress)

I will be there with a friend. Maybe one, maybe MANY.

Probably one.

Been thinking about this, but I have a tentative date for 3-player Spelunky (nudge nudge) that same night.

I'm planning on showing up alone, hiding in the corner tweeting everything people say and then collecting all the money from the famousness. #BusinessPlans

I'm planning on getting on stage, preparing to read the thing I wrote, then going all GG Allin on the crowd such that they deeply regret going but tell their kids about it years later

Feces: the eternal crowd-pleaser.

Small changes: probably won't start until 9:15ish, as there's people doing a thing before this. Also, important_celeb is out, but the others will be there.

Your version of 'going all GG Allin' is reading jokes in ALL CAPS isnt it?

Will this still be happening at like 11ish? God, WHY AM I EMPLOYED? WHY?

I imagine it'll be over by 11; worst-case scenario is it starts at 9:30, and there's six readings, at roughly ten minutes each, so it should be over by 10:30ish, I think? I hope, at least; lord knows any time someone asks me to stay out after 10 on a weeknight, I'm all, "DONT YOU PEOPLE HAVE SCHOOL IN THE MORNING?"

Sorry I couldn't join you -- bouncer wouldn't let me in with my expired ID.

Oh man! Yeah, they were strict as fuck at the door. Thanks for trying to attend, though!

griphus, Potomac, thanks so much for coming! It was great to see you both, and to use Potomac as a stand-in for my teenage son.
