Whoa! I was just thinking about this today, and wondering what the dates would be. I think I will be there this year.

Well I hope you set your priorities straight and include a trip to El Coyote again for margaritas... I think you already learned your lesson with eating the food there though ;)

Patty is Dead said...

MamaPoohBear said...

Hippiedoll said...

This sounds pretty cool! I am playing with the thought of "tagging along" with you guys this time...

I think I've gotten an email from someone before, regarding a multipart post. I don't know if it was Matt or DebS?

Out of all these 60 "celebrities" I posted, I'd say only Jerry Rubin is a member of *The Manson Family Blog* universe of relevance.

I knew there must be some relevance to the MFB recent thread by the listing of Sharon's neighbors for eternity (with a copy and paste from Wikipedia's Jerry Rubin page):


Yet another successful act in Yippies "guerrilla theater" was when during the Presidential elections of 1968 the Youth International Party nominated their own candidate for the U.S. Presidency.

The nominee was Pigasus the Immortal, a 145-pound (66-kg) pig that they felt was a realistic alternative to Richard Nixon or his presidential opponent, Hubert Humphrey. At the official introductions at Pigasus’ first press conference, Rubin, while holding the candidate in his arms, demanded he be given Secret Service protection and be brought to the White House for a foreign policy briefing. He also promised, on behalf of Pigasus, a fair election campaign and if Pigasus won the election he would be eaten. This would, maintained Rubin, reverse the usual democratic process in which the pig is elected "and proceeds to eat the people."

My favorite candidate in '68 was Pat Paulsen:

"All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian"

I miss Pat Paulson.

Matt said...

TomG was a little slow deleting his own comments today. He's usually faster.

Matt said...

From Wikipedia:

"After the 1968 Democratic convention

Sources vary on the fate of Pigasus. There is some speculation that a police officer ate him."

Mostly LA, but day and overnight excursions are possible. We really never know until it gets close. All ideas welcome.
