December 27th: PowerPoint Karaoke!

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking that December 27th will just be another normal Thursday. Or perhaps you’re thinking that you won’t live to see the 27th, given that it comes after the Mayan apocalypse, Xmas shopping, and the premier of the new Tarantino movie. But assuming we all survive the next two weeks, December 27th won’t just be another Thursday! It will be POWERPOINT KARAOKE DAY!

That’s right! Once again, PowerPoint Karaoke takes the stage at the Bryant Lake Bowl, at 10 PM December 27th. Doors open at 9:30 PM! You can drink beer and eat food in the theater! Tickets are all of $7, but you can get one at $5 if you bring your Fringe button along! Tickets can be purchased at the door or online:


This month’s presenters are Dawn Krosnowski, Tom Reed, Sharon Stiteler, and Tim Uren! That right there is a reason to survive the apocalypse.

The BNAT14 Tour de Kitsch

This past weekend, I traveled to Austin, TX to be part of the 14th Butt-Numb-a-Thon film extravaganza. Since I am still a bit on the poor side, I once again made the trek by driving instead of flying. This means that I once again subjected myself to six US states’ worth of highway-side rest stops and gas stations, meaning you get another installment of the Tour de Kitsch!

I have claimed a Moose! WHOA! I can buy death at this truck stop!
Minneapolis, MN: I picked up my favorite travel buddy, MOOSE! Moose has traveled to all seven continents and has met a plethora of celebrities. He’s also cuddly.
Faribault, MN: WHOA! I can buy Death at a truck stop!

Guys, I don't think there are palm trees or surfing in Oklahoma.. Oh no! My car has hit a giant egg!
Guthrie, OK: Guys, I don’t think there’s surfing or palm trees anywhere near Oklahoma.
Austin, TX: My car just ran over an egg!
Oh WOW. I might need this.
