This sounds intense.


SANTARCHY Afterparty?

We'd like to offer:

People dressed fully as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus or one of Santa's elves get in free at BootieSF that night.

We already have listed that anyone in a Santa hat gets a free Bootie CD!

BootieSF Holiday Party is Dec 9th 9pm at DNA Lounge.


So don't fuck with kids, sure, but I just wanted to pitch this, and if I come off a nutter please blame the $3.99 wine at Andronico's...but imagine this: A couple dozen santas (or, er, 15, with 31 watching, and personally I think 31 people showing up to watch 15 drunken santas is almost more interesting than the santas themselves) appear in the santa-area of the mall and set up shop (folding chairs, mini-christmas trees, etc) to COMPETE with the mall (read: Underpaid, about to commit homicide at any moment) santa: Zombie santa, Hannukah santa, anti-globalization santa, The Government Is Trying To Kill Me Because I Know THE TRUTH About The Alien Conspiracy Being Perpetrated By Ronald Reagans Immortal & Superintelligent Genitals Santa, etc.

Gimmicky and vague, but I guess I'd just love to do something that would give kids a kick...I saw a stat somewhere that only 40% of children want to sit on santa's lap; go to any mall and watch the line and you'll see that a lot of the lil un's are bored out of their minds, and that's certainly what I remembered: Why do I have to sit on the lap of some poor sap in a costume so a picture can be taken? Why am I telling him what I want for Christmas when both he and I (or at least I, and I hope very much he) know that he has no control over the swag I receive? Why can't something INTERESTING happen? Anything near kids (or perhaps anything that monkeywrenches sacred mall rituals) is iffy, but I had to put it out there.


Did I read this right? in the AM?


Getting drunk before noon? What better way to honor the Baby J .?


What about us bad santas that can't get it up before noon? Any chance for an afternoon rendezvous? (Zeitgeist again at 3 or 4:00??)


to f.l.d.: no set meeting place/time in the afternoon. if you want a less anarchic gathering go to the mall. otherwise, meet us 11:30 or earlier, or get the mobile phone # of a friend who's going

(f.l.d. you're really working hard at being lazy.. we already answered you on tribe. now run and get me a scotch on the rocks.)


and yes its in the a.m. cheers!


to c.b.: thanks.

(c.b. yeah, I guess it's more of an early-morning-lazy thing than a general-lazy thing. I'll see you Saturday w/ my penance in a glass for your imbibing enjoyment.)


this is what its all about:


is that a smurf hat in his left hand??!!!


of sorts.
