Craziest-sounding part: Ensemble Robot on April 17 with live soldering. I think any artistic performance that requires safety goggles must be good.
If the festival is well-attended they'll probably do it every year.

So I'm riding the stationary bike at the gym, rediscovering the awesomeness of Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, but also being distracted by the pretty moving pictures on the screens hanging above the cardio machines. One of the pretty pictures is an infomercial for something that looks like a flattish sort of generic MP3 player, except that it can only show photos (holds up to 50!). My first thought was that it probably cost $19.95, and wouldn't be worth any more than that. It turned out to cost $19.99, but you get two of them so maybe it's worth it after all.
Anyway, the awesome part, the real reason I'm telling you this, is that at one point they actually displayed the slogan Share and Enjoy on the screen. I think it may even have had an exclamation point.
In related news, I'm thinking of writing one of those songs that consists of just a whole bunch of cultural references, except all the references would be to "electric [something]". Possible lyrics:
Got an electric sheep and an electric monk, An electric guitar to play electric funk
Video killed the radio star, But I don't know who killed the electric car.
Except I also want to use the "guitar / car" rhyme. Maybe later in the song I'll have all the same references, but mixed up in a different order.
In even more tangentially related news, Samuel Taylor Coleridge once wrote the phrase "fast thick pants". It's not quite as awesome in context.
And also a couple of doodles from around the same time:
( Doodles )
And finally, some parody song lyrics from a couple years later:
( After the Tone )
