To Eschew Stairways and Windows

From Cynical Nymph:

BlogHer: about blogging, but mostly (if we're being honest) an excuse to meet up with friends you usually connect with over a series of tubes. This year, in addition to our plot about the PSC,Personal Failure and I have hatched a plan to really make the most of our BlogHer experience.

"What's that??" you say. "It involves costumes? Costumes based around adventure, romance, and mad science??"

This is an OPEN CALL to all GIRL GENIUS FANS who are going to be at BlogHer '10. Put the word out! Jenka and Mamma Gkika will be in the house... at some point. We may even be joined by a few others, if we can be persuasive enough. For instance, it looks like we have Lucrezia on tap at the very least.

We're not sure when, but possibly Saturday night. But we invite all Girl Genius lovers to join us in our frivolity! And if for some reason this is the first you've heard of the peerless gaslamp fantasy that is Girl Genius, for Quantum Field's sake, what are you still doing here? Get thee hence! Read!

And now, because I composed this post in my email, I leave you with my current signature:

"You want easy? Go live in a yurt."

    see, you degenerates have last names like first names...

    how about I believe in WHATEVER I want - even in the FLYING SPAGHETTI MONSTER! - and you have nothing to say!

    let me show you the end results of this particular *ONE-DIMENSIONAL SCIENTIFIC MODE*
    of thinking that is called *CRITICAL THINKING*, which is completely divorced from
    any human objectives...

    this style has been perfected by dawkins, pz, randi and the other *NEW ATHEISTS*
    THE BOOBQUAKE - 911!
    hey, atheists don't even BELIEVE IN BOOBIES!!!
    they thought BOOBIES had no effect... WRONG!

    see, I just want to make it clear to the rest of you:
    jen is unable to see that there is a CONFLICT BETWEEN EROS & SCIENCE....

    see how we take a term and convert it into its AUTHENTIC POLITICAL DIMENSION - THAT
    OF LIBERATION - not just merely harmless expression...

  7. Ooh, PF, do hyu tink DM will come crash BlogHer? Hy vould be very desirous of introducing him to Füst, hyu know?

    you guys are hilarious :)

    when/where is BlogHer?

  12. BlogHer '10 is August 6th and 7th (Friday and Saturday) (with official parties starting Thursday night) at the Hilton New York.

    Since I live in New York, I used the easy location to guilt trip a bunch of my imaginary friends to get involved. The biggest plus? It got Marzie of Bright Nepenthe to start a blog so she felt she had a reason to go. And we are all brighter for Bright Nepenthe. :D


Comments are for you guys, not for me. Say what you will. Don't feel compelled to stay on topic, I enjoy it when comments enter Tangentville or veer off into Non Sequitur Town. Just keep it polite, okay?

I am attempting to use blogger's new comment spam feature. If you don't immediately see your comment, it is being held in spam, I will get it out next time I check the filter. Unless you are Dennis Markuze, in which case you're never seeing your comment.
