On May 9, 2009 it will be my 60th. birthday. A friend from Long Island is bringing down concert sound and lighting and we're having a party. We have bands coming to play from back in the day and some new bands that are big around here....I'm going to get to do sets with three different bands... Cirkus being the main one.... it's going to go noon to moon.... I'm going to put up inflatable games and rides and it's come one come all... no cover, bring your coolers, pack some food and bring chairs or a blanket.

Anyone from A2K that would like to trek down is invited. It's going to be a good time, and even if you don't care about the party or meeting the Bear it would be your chance to meet the much loved squinney.

So anyway... Stevefest.... May 9, 2009.

@blueveinedthrobber,
I would love to meet both the bear AND Squinney, but, unless we visit our daughter in DC that month, I will be nowhere near your side of the country at that time. I trust there will be pictures though?

@blueveinedthrobber,
Stevefest is perfect for an A2K Gathering, but who's Steve?

@martybarker,
I'm certainly interested in meeting both of you. It will depend on if I'm in camp, but I've got it pencilled in, too. Thanks for the invite and the heads up on your bit 6-0.

@blueveinedthrobber,
Oh. It is clever to name it after someone like that. (People will be there to meet squinney, anyway.)

Has anyone bothered to ask where this party is? Should I just drive around the country until I hear some noise. Will the fervent sound of partygoers blowing on their noisemakers signal me to stop?

You know what's funny? I put up this innocuous general invitation....and not like I care.... but when I left the house it had a 6 rating.... I come back and it has a 4....proof positive that as Roger says.... the new A2K is a popularity contest.... if someone doesn't like you they will give anything you do a thumbs down....pretty funny actually...

@blueveinedthrobber,
I love ya, but I voted it down because it was self promotion. I want us to ease up on our old censorship of this kind of thing (e.g. sugar blog issue is really the kind of thing that the site should be trying to control) but at the same time don't want it to be that prevalent. If you'd been voted down a few times I'd have voted you up, but you had one of the most popular topics of the day already so I voted it down to move it down the list a bit.

Nothing personal, I just would rather see other things being prominent and expressed a lil' -1 vote of my opinion. You are right that it's a popularity contest, but in my vote's case it was popularity of the content I'm commenting on and not the person. I just would rather see a great question or some great information be the most popular and was casting my editorial vote. When I post about things that aren't interesting to you feel free to do the same and I won't take it personally.

@OCCOM BILL,
There ya go! My whole opinion just made pointless by one gay guy. Don't take voting personal.
