So I got into the show at Fort Whoop-Up this summer. They usually do a murder mystery, but this year they've decided to go with a gunfight. We'll be using actual black powder blanks, so this is NOT your standard cap-gun fight. We're bringing the freaking cannons into play. If you'd like to come see it (I recommend it), the shows are the evenings of:
JULY: 9, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25, 31
AUGUST: 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22
I believe there's some sort of meal that's a part of the event, so if you're interested call the Fort at (403)329-0444 for ticket prices, details, etc.
Next order of business: For those who don't know, I consider the Pontiac Aztec and the Chrysler PT Cruiser to be two of the ugliest cars ever designed. I have recently found out about a new car that gives both of them a run for their money. The Nissan Cube:http://www.nissan.ca/vehicles/cars/cube/en/
Now, don't get me wrong, the idea is neat. It's an inexpensive "car" (~$17,000) that's designed to be non-conformist. At least, as non-conformist as a box on wheels can be (hence the name "Cube"). For one, it's intentionally asymmetrical. Not necessarily a bad thing, but again, the Nissan Cube is fugly. For two, it has an optional interior shag carpet (yes, you have to pay extra for it). It's not even in a useful place (the floor), but rather it is a 5-7 inch circle on the dashboard. Again, this could be cool if you could use it as a place to store your cell phone/iPod, etc. but it in fact comes with a large label warning you against putting anything there, as it'll just fall off or become a hazard while driving.
They. Make. You. Pay. For. A. Fucking. Circle. Of. Carpet. That. Just. Sits. There. And. Doesn't. Do. A. Damn. Thing!!!
While I'm sure it'll establish a fan base, I personally want to shoot whoever decided to give this entire project a green light.
