Ah, so it happened again.
Hollie is too advanced for this shit kicker town of rodeos and livestock auctions.
I dared to cross the line again- I hosted a beard and moustache competition. Shame on me for being so... daring...
The event was a flop.
It was fun... but it was a big old soggy FLOP.
We promoted the hell out of this event, we were in the papers, websites, flyers all around town...
Our Facebook event page said 50 people were coming with 30 "maybes" and over 500 people were invited.
About 8 people came to watch the competition...
10 people entered the competition, 4 out of those 10 didn't even know about the competition until they came to the bar for their Saturday night drink.
I'm actually getting teary right now writing this post.
I'm so tired of living in a town where everyone complains about how there's nothing to do but no one will do anything about it. I try so hard to bring new and interesting things to this town. I really do, but everyone's just too damn afraid to get their feet a little wet.
In a city of 143,000 I stand alone.
Well, not completely alone. I have my crew (seen below, minus one person).
I've brought this town steampunk balls, its first zombie walk, and it's first and only friggin Renaissance faire for crying out loud... what's so bizarre about a beard and moustache competition? They're everywhere!
Oh yeah, to make matters worse, the sound guy I hired spilled his beer on my laptop last night and tried to cover this up by cleaning it and not mentioning it me. The laptop was in his possession the whole time so I'm sure he did it. Needless to say, my keyboard doesn't work. I sent him a message requesting he pay for repairs but I haven't heard back from him yet.
I'm not a very happy person right now.
Er, I'm just gonna leave you with these photos. I don't have anything else to say.
