what’s all this, then? why the lebowski (s)talk? i’m just wondering if we (or some other sufficiently nerdy contingent) could/would put together a “westfest” or “matsfest”. hear me out.
i am loathe to admit that i like rush. most of you know that already. i have never gone, mind you, but rush has a yearly thing called “rushcon” or some damn thing. additionally, rush has these:
(i am looking at my own versions of these right now – deduct cool points accordingly)
i look at it thusly: if rush can have a yearly “convention” and bobble heads, why not the replacements? if a movie (albeit, a good movie) can have a successful yearly get together & action figures, why not the replacements?
i call bullshit on the notion that it wouldn’t work for a band like the replacements. i just don’t want anything to do with the planning. oh, and please make sure the first “con” happens in mpls so i don’t have to travel.
get to it.
p.s. i just had delicious jimmy john’s for lunch, and goddamn they are freaky fast.
p.s.s. voila! content!
