Definitely considering it. I never been and gotta get there before some force of government fucks it all up.
I want to mail myself The Wheel of Time series (Robert Jordan / Brandon Sanderson). All the books, because they should have them. Fucking awesome series.

if you want to mail ahead books, i can get the library's po box.

@landpirate my friend sydney is probably flying into LA for the gathering and the two of us are going to the punk fest afterwards. i'll let you know when she locks down specifics, she might be able to bring you out to the slabs.

A girl I met at a backyard punk show a few weeks ago told me about this website and I've been wanting to find a community like this for years now. So excited to have found it! I'd really like to come to this thing so I think I'm gonna start planning on it! Hope to meet a lot of awesome people there!

All you mofos are making it really hard for me to stay away! If you see some weirdo in the shadows lurkin say howdy! I typically avoid crowds of more than 5, but this seems like it is going to be a hell of a party!

Yeah that would be great thanks Matt. I'll do the same when my I've booked my ticket.

I have an idea for a film to show. My friend filmed and directed a documentary called "Grasp the Nettle" its about land activists in london as they create the Kew Bridge Eco Village and also Occupy Parliament Square. Its available on Vimeo but I have a copy downloaded that I can bring with me. No idea if this is the sort of thing you're after so I will not be offended if it isn't shown. :)

Am I correct in assuming everyone has seen gas land now? If not that should be shown.

Even though I'm going back to school in Portland.. I have decided I am just going to have to miss a few days of it for this! So I'll be driving from the Portland area if anyone wants a ride

OMG - this is sounding like Honky Tonk Freeway movie - people coming from all over -and landing in one spot. I'm psyched!!!

btw - here's the trailer for HTF - Jessica Tandy, RIP I love her. And I love her afternoon cocktails. It's an awesome movie.

All Hail STP Jamboree!!

I might actually make this. My girlfriend has wanted to see Mount Savation for years and says it's the number one place she wants to go on earth. Definitely sounds like a cool fest.

I never rode down there, but I remember sitting under a bridge with a gang of cool ass hobos in Colton one time, and they kept joking about hopping out and ending up in el centro. So I think you might be able to hop there? Never done it myself but that might be a possibility.

  1. Paying the Bills

    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.

    $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.

    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.
