Re: New York area meetup??

Ulysses 730ish then... Just now I learned my roommate wants me out, and I'm unemployed... But I might still make it down there.
I'll be dressed like a dispossessed who feeds in love and music, tyvm...
No, really. Someone bring a flag, or tabard, or something.

Re: New York area meetup??

I want to hang out, truly. Yet...Not so sure about that band, which I have never heard of...?
Happy Hour anyone?
Other things?
Meet-up after the band plays, even? Or before?
Option, options...!

Re: New York area meetup??

Oh! I'm in a roll, third post and all, but:

Why don't we all just meet on Monday? :idea:

It's like 5 of us by now, right!?
(there, I'm counting Helen who hates the idea but, hey!)
Five is a fantastic number...

Re: New York area meetup??

I was in and around the Astroland area last month (for Siren Music Fest, which was less fun than it sounds), and it appears functional, if you were curious. I'm moving (to the Boston-meetup area) soon, and don't see myself making another NYC meetup, though : / Good luck! I never went to the actual ...

Re: New York area meetup??

I won't be able to go to the meetup, but I'll be in NYC with a friend on monday and have no idea what we're gonna do if anyone wants to meet up somewhere. Monday, ha. Depending on what you consider satisfactory, we could meet up. I'm free. I live in NY. So why not? :} Anyone else? ... Now, other th...

Re: New York area meetup??

Should we aim at doing it before August is over?
If Astroland wasn't a dumpster I would add it to the list of suggestions. Plus, I'm not sure it's even working/open anymore :(

Re: Explain your avatar!

It is a collage, and I was taking myself pretty seriously while making it.
I named it Prince of Cosmos and gave it to a friend to serenade him into being the katamari (ball) for Halloween so I could roll him against things.
Then he got offended.

Re: Burning Man

I also went last year to the New York Decompression... Didn't enjoy it too much, personal reasons I guess, but also because the interactions -imo- lose some of the naïveté that instinctively raises in the desert, maybe the lack of references in such a foreign environment make people more open, less ...

Re: Burning Man

Things like Burning Man always make me feel cynical and raise my hackles. I don't know why. I think it seems to me like a lot of the people who go believe they're causing some sort of profound social change when really they're preaching to the converted in the VAST majority of cases. ...I don't thi...

Re: New York area meetup??

Great. I just missed the New York meeting.
-_-

Well... the Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy exhibit in the Met Museum is going on until Sept 1st... Plus all the usually juicy stuff there is in the Met.
If that's not compelling, I declare myself clueless.

Re: Burning Man

I've never been yet. I should be going to Burning Man or Nowhere in 2009 though. (Nowhere is the European regional burn, held in Spain). Let's do that! I posted something about this in some other thread, so anyway: No matter what, we should take a telescope there. Must! To me, specially during thos...

Re: Burning Man?

Burning Man indeed! I've been attending since... 2006. Before that I lived in a totalitarian state with no internet, so. I'll give you a minute to think about that -.- So yea, Burning man. Telescopes are a must, since the visibility is superb. The Mars/Moon eclipse last year was wondrous. Ever since...
