cue Master Bates references....

wave the possibility of wearing nothing but a (shark-themed?) shower curtain in the park, or dressing up as his mother (ag-enn) and Mr. Crotchcap can't resist.

nice one, ACE.

I've already looked up a cocktail recipe, The Psycho, which involves copius vodka and absinthe (oh, brother)...

All photos from this event should be in black and white. Don't forget to bring the Bosco chocolate syrup for authentic blood.

Well stab me in the shower and call me Janet...

First - let me give credit where credit is due. It was Birdw0rks that first mentioned the event. Naturally, I was more excited than Liza in a pharmacy.

Thanks to everyone's efforts 2 summers ago, Shark Day was a huge success. I hvae a feeling Psycho Day will be even better.

Now where the hell is that wig with a bun???
The Guncle 14 years ago
I sent off a note to the Flickr peeps asking if they would list this event on the Flickr blog. They were nice enough to post a blog entry when we did the Jaws thing (thanks Heather!). Maybe they'll do so again.

I also requested that they send along some shwag if they have any to spare.

what happens if you can't get out of work early enough for the mad dash for seats at 5pm? will fellow flickr-ites make space for you?? I would love to come to this - but I'm afraid I'd be one of the late people having to step all over the masses as I try to stumble my way over to you....keeping in mind I have yet to meet any of you so I don't know how I'll know to find you!!! I'd say I'd look for shower caps and wigs with buns but apparently there may be lots of those around :)

anyway - I digress!! If there is a way someone can offer a corner of a blanket on which I can sit my tush I promise to bring food and/or beverage in return for bum-space rental!!
The Guncle 14 years ago
Oh - to be clear - not everyone needs to be there for the 5pm dash. Usually a few of us bring big blankets and claim as much space as possible so there is room for everyone that shows up later.

Donna, I will email you my cell phone number so you can find us that evening. Also keep checking the thread as we may have some inflatable marker so people know where to go.
donnat333 14 years ago
great Aaron!!! Cheers to those who stake the claim for space for the rest of us :)
The Guncle 14 years ago
So is everyone planning there costumes and/or themed food stuffs to bring?

Thanks Sarah!

Okay - so who can meet early for this thing - say around 4:30? We'll need a few people to help me save us a huge spot on the lawn.

Not sure yet, there is to much stuff due Monday. But I'm hoping I can make it.
If I can, I'll try for the land rush.

Remember, unfurl your sheets with the wind, it will cover more space faster ;-)
birdw0rks Posted 14 years ago. Edited by birdw0rks (member) 14 years ago
I shall plan on being there for The Big Rush, whuhh whuhh work allowing. Her Fleecieness too. Give us a bell when you're about to head over there, Mr. CC.

Will be armed with the absinthe-infused Psycho cocktails...(edit: they're surprisingly tasty - a bit like drinking licorice). Is anyone willing to bring along a bag of ice? Might not have room to carry it ourselves.

And, if they're delivered in time on Monday, I'll have a naff, little flick(r)-themed give-away for the first 15 or so folk to show up.
LarimdaME 14 years ago
Gonna take work off early, so will be there for Land Grab promptly at 4:30, possibly 4, with beach mat on hand (measures 60" x 70"). I'll stop by Conway tomorrow and see if I can pick up another (only $5, why not). It seems we have an imbalance of people who want to attend and people who can grab a spot, so if you can make it for the 5pm land grab, PLEASE come!
digicolleen 14 years ago
I can't make this one because I have to work Mon. night. I was even going to sport a shower cap with rubber ducks on it!

Have a good time, everyone. Can't wait to see pictures!
birdw0rks 14 years ago
Admiral Gene: we have a couple of large-ish blankets to bring.

Forcast is currently wet, sadly...Shower caps on. Does anyone work in a hotel from which they can nick a bunch?

Where're we going to meet at 4:30-5:00? Last time we were on the southern edge about half way down the lawn, yes?
dantekgeek 14 years ago
I'll be able to make the rush and help out with staking our claim on the grass. Can I get contact info for someone to help find you guys?

OK, who did the "rain dance" instead of the "No Rain Dance"?

The official site doesn't say anything about rain. But the folks over on about.com cliam that Tuesday is the rain day.

Movies are show on a large screen in Bryant Park at dusk on Monday nights from June through August. Access to the grass for blankets and picnicing is available at 5:00 p.m. Bryant Park films begin at sunset, typically between 8 and 9 p.m. Raindate for all shows is Tuesday. For more information, call: 212-512-5700.

But being a firm believer of "Murphy's Law", now that we have a phone number and a rain day. It should stop raining as soon as I finish entering this post!!! :-)
The Guncle 14 years ago
yeah - the weatherpeople state rain through Monday evening. I will give a call tomorrow and see if the event is being rescheduled or not.

Let's meet on the center of the south end again like last time.
rayarooo 14 years ago
i wish i can go but work -xT haha make sure you let me know when the next event is id love to go on another photowalk -=p
The Guncle 14 years ago
I just called the hotline (a recorded message). It has not been updated since July 23rd. I will check back later.
The Guncle 14 years ago
Okay - I just spoke to a real, live person at the Bryan Park office:

The film will be shown if it is drizzling, not shown if it is raining, "cats and dogs". There will be NO RAIN DATE for this. Either it happens tonight or not at all.

Because the lawn is soon to be torn up for a fashion show, people can bring lawn chairs.

Frankly, I'm not certain if I want to go this evening. I'm not feeling all that great and sitting out in the damp might not be the best thing. I'll make my decision around 2pm.
birdw0rks Posted 14 years ago. Edited by birdw0rks (member) 14 years ago
Wunderground forecast is suggesting likely rain from 8, but when does a drizzle becomes a cat or dog? who knows? I'll likely show up at 5 anyway unless it's cnutting it down (or none of you other shaggers are going). We could always retire to the Ginger Man on 36th St. if things're damp?
The Guncle 14 years ago
Sorry kids, but I've decided to stay in this evening. I've been looking forward to this for so long - I'm disappointed.
LarimdaME 14 years ago
Birds Fleecie and I are camped out in the middle (very middle), if people are daring enough to join. We have a table, and people are allowed to bring in the park chairs to sit upon. Look for the asian man in shirt and tie, lady in purple top, and man with ballcap all wearing buttons.

"Camping" out in the middle...

yay, it looks like you guys had fun!
birdw0rks 14 years ago
Does anyone want a Psycho New York Flickerite badge (background artwork blatantly stolen from the EvileOne)? I printed a slew of them that will just sit gathering dust otherwise:

Ingrid! 14 years ago
wow you had buttons made? When the going gets tough, the tough get Social!
