Will it have a full-size ice sculpture replica of Michelangelo’s David that dispenses vodka from its penis?
‘Cause that’s when you know it’s a real fuckin’ party!!
"Slog tipper Wussyboy sends a link to a YouTube video of a propane cannon from a recent Burning Man as an example of what we might be treated to this weekend…"
ah dan it's wussyboi thanks hunny!!
I have an air horn.
Think I'll use it.
More nouveau riche tech trash throwing their money around in a vulgar display of tactless disregard for those who live in the neighborhood. It's like the saleswoman at Fox Jewelers that pointed out the eight carat diamond and whispered "We call it an east side diamond. It might be big and look flashy, but you could shine a searchlight on the damn thing and it wouldn't sparkle."
yall bichez iz geluss
I make less than most of you and I don't get hating on rich people. Hey, if you've worked hard and earned your money, more power to you.
This is just plain fucked - one-day events are one thing, eliminating all public access (and not just to those darn Wallingford NIMBY's you like to rag on) to a major park for over a week during August (or, really, any other month) is unconscionable.
Of course, under Nickels, the City Government doesn't have much of a conscience anymore, but that doesn't make this private sector lockout of a public park right, or defensible public policy.
I'm preety damn sure that they can't eliminate public access...everyone is misunderstanding "private party" I-41 requires parks to be used for park purposes. they can let private people (for a fee) come in and use the party for their event but they can't keep you out. it makes weddings at Seattle Parks funny, cuz the weddings often have the general public (not wedding guests) wandering through...
@7 - because you're a tool. yeah, we got that.
I much prefer the kind of rich people who piss away their wealth and power while flashing their twats for the paparazzi or throwing grandiose parties in Gasworks Park.
The kind of rich people I can't stand are the ones who parley their influence into a Senate seat, then get their meathead son elected Governor of Texas, then install the little prick in the White House, leading to the near collapse of civilized government and a series of botched illegal wars, all the while making their rich pals even richer at the expense of the taxpayer.
You don't have to like people like Paris Hilton or the British Royal family, but at least they're harmless. Mostly.
10 -- What an unintelligent response. Is that the best you can do?
Yeah. I think it is.
Oh my gosh, this is kind of embarrassing but I think this surprise party is for me! (My birthday is coming up) I'm going to play dumb, though, because I don't want my parents to be disappointed...
No prob, Jude. I'm still gonna eat your cake.
If you actually went out and found out some facts "mr x", you would find that the park has not been closed at all this week. In fact they were showing people around and explaining what they were planning on doing. A very small portion of the park is being used for the party, FOR ONE NIGHT.
There's alot of (in fact ALL) local talent being employed to create and perform at this event. Not to mention that the news has disclosed the huge sum payed to the parks...
Welcome to reality...step in and take a look around.
Good - I stand corrected (I never said the whole park was closed, btw - just the waterfront chunk they're using).
However, to call their staging area "a very small portion of the park" is ludicrous - and it ain't just one day that that portion has been/is/will be unusable to the general public.
Also - neither of the major daily paper articles on this event disclosed what the rental fee was - do tell...
Damn - I did say all public access. My bad! Too much multitasking when I should be working....
I am likely wrong, but Melinda birthday is this Wednesday.. could it be a birthday party for her? Local talent only? Eastside sax player? I do not think $5000 is enough for use of the park, but that is the citys fault for not charging enough. If they can affore this thay can afford 10 times that amount. However I doubt any park goer is being denied access, especially tonight. I will be there tonight to check out the fireworks and live music from the water.. Paddle on.
From the SeattlePI:
"It's my understanding that the party host plans to make a financial donation to Seattle Parks & Recreation," committee chair Virginia Swanson is quoted as saying in an e-mail circulated by Friends of Gas Works. "The fee to date paid for the Park Use Permit is $2,865 and the Special Event Permit fee is $2,195 - the latter fee is based on the anticipated attendance of 300 guests."
Did it ever go off?
We went down there and watched them filming the movie, heard the choirs sing, "oh happy day"
but it was 10:30 and getting really cold when we left!
I have been on movie sets before and this one was the usual, a big giant HURRY UP and wait! I didn't get in on the $100 pay for extras so I didn't wait.
Can't wait to hear more about it though!
wow! the rehearsal last night could not have prepared me for the spectacles of tonight!
The fireworks were awesome,, scary to be so close~!
What a really well organized shindig!
We totally snuck in and crashed the party, free booze and art rules! So what if it was thrown by an unknown "philanthropist" (rich guy)... he threw a damn good party! Walking in, we just happened to be in the right place at the right time and ventured in with the guests fresh off the Duck boats. (If you act like you belong, then you probably do.) Upon walking in, we were handed glasses of wine and hors d'oeuvres, totally cracking me up that it had all been that easy.
Crazy f'ing night man, and so unexpected! I guess the universe was on our side.
Truly otherworldly performance art of fantastic epic proportions - the enchanted island of paradise in a hand made universe truly worthy of any mind inspired to create it, and the generosity was unprecedented. #5 - you're an idiot; #8 - you're not far behind. A whole world came to life last night, and all you could do was whimper. All hats off and a thousand cheers for the priesthood of artists of Art beyond mere art.
