this weekend I'm going to a fire performers retreat to better my skills and learn more about fire saftey and how to start a business as a fire performer and was wondering if they'res anyone on here that would like to join me or has any freak show skills they could contribute to the group. I also have many freak show skills but don't feel like listing it all. If anyone is interested PM me or just reply to the posting.:goat:

Human ashtray.... I've actually been working on an act for a while because I wanted to start a freak show myself.... I know a handful of cigarette tricks and as a finally i put a shit load of them out on my tongue.... I'd love to be apart of a Freak Show especially if it was a traveling one... message me back if this sounds good

Devil sticks are really fun,
but poi will always be my favorite.

If you do a traveling circus, I can do tarot and palm readings. Also, I'm interested in learning poi.

Yes! I'm in Philly and have been performing sideshow for about 10 years now. Also recently was honored with a Guinness World Record, which obviously would be good for promo and whatnot. There's a few other things I can do, and already have several shows set up for the fall. So yea...if you're serious, I have all the time in the world to dedicate to doing this.

I don't have anything to help out with except very beginner acrobalance,
but I am commenting to say how rad it is how many people have responded so far and how many have fun skills.
I didn't expect that for some reason.

Oh, I guess I could contribute myself as an audience for all this.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $100.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

This guy with a website called "Rustic Cyberpunk", does computer stuff while living in a cabin in the woods.

You'll need a Tor browser to view his blog, though. I won't link it here because it's not a regular link, and I'm not sure if that's okay on here.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!
