Post Palooza Post
I think we all knew that Petja Palooza was going to be special.
But it wasn’t until I actualy saw Petja on the streets of Manhattan last week, that I knew we were talking about a whole other level of Dafuq?
There really are no words to describe what the hell happened last weekend, so instead, I’ll share some of the more tasteful images, and let you draw your own conclusions.
One thing we do need to talk about is the gift bag. This bag had more fuckery per square inch than any bag could reasonably be expected to contain. And we had one for everybody, meaning that every seller who participated donated well over 200 pieces of merchandise for your fat, jelaous pleasure.
Here is a list of people who donated to our swag bags, filling them with everything from handmade jewelry to vibrating naughty things:
The School Locker
Music for the Goddess
Blue Cat Books
Princess Buzzkill’s Crying Glitter Eagle’s Emporium of Whimsy
Bound in Chain
Rainy Day Paperback Exchange
Wylie Elise Beckert
Epic Toy Chest
This Charming Candy
Creative Heart’s Design
Risa Rocks It
L and K Beads
Nebbish Without a Cause
Lil Gypsy Treasures
Donna The Dead
Third Half Studios
Arsenal Soap Works
If you contributed to the bag and you are not credited, please let me know
That right there is a list of approved fuckery vendors, so please visit their shops when you’re looking for something wonderful that hasn’t been imported from Bali.
And by the way, we have about 15 extra gift bags, and we’ll be offering those for sale in the next day or so. Proceeds will benefit Bronc’s AIDS Ride, June 3rd – 9th.
Finally, I’d like to thank someone very special for putting this all together.
That’s the heartstoppingly awesome Patrick McNaughton, preparing to give me a lap dance at Lucky Cheng’s.
Patrick is an event designer and Regretsy fan in NYC, and we were able to hire him to coordinate everything for us before we got out there. This poor bastard did everything from choosing the menu to packing up the gift bags and transporting them all to the venue.
With no help from us.
Because we suck.
And after all that, he still had time to dance seductively for me while I shook my balloon penis at him. Try getting that kind of action from human resources.
So if you’re looking for an event designer in New York, email this bastard immediately.
Honestly, if I were looking for a full time employee in NYC, I would hire this guy so fast it would give new meaning to New York minute. And you know I’m sincere, because I never say anything good about anyone.
A sincere heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the bags, to Petja’s travel fund and the incredibly wonderful event that was Petja Palooza.
It still gets me, right here.
