Third reminder and it still isn't old. I blame anticipation, cuz this would drive me crazy if it were something like On the Boards.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 11, 2007 8:26 PM

if it wasn't the middle of finals i would go.

I might sacrifice my grades just to meet ecce and issur. but they won't show.

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 11, 2007 8:38 PM

I can guarantee you that Issur will show. No doubt.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 11, 2007 8:48 PM

god, more pressure, i am seriously torn

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 11, 2007 8:51 PM

Oh, the pressure. Do I dare put an actual face to the shit I spew here?

Posted by tsm | December 11, 2007 8:54 PM

Just pop in for an hour. No big.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 11, 2007 8:54 PM

Could be fun, and a chance to mourn the burnt out husk that once was Frites. :(

Posted by Phelix | December 11, 2007 9:28 PM


Sneak out, and go across the street to Quinn's - not Frites, but pretty damned good fries.

If they're packed, well, Honey Hole or Cafe Presse are close, and both are also good for deep-fried potato goodness.

Posted by COMTE | December 11, 2007 9:57 PM

Thursday is a gig night. I'll be a no-show.

Posted by seattle98104 | December 11, 2007 10:05 PM

Damn it. I'll miss it. And the next one too.

But come February, I may actually be able to attend!

Posted by Aexia | December 11, 2007 10:10 PM

It's so tempting... I'm dying here. Positively dyyyyinggg.

Posted by Amelia | December 11, 2007 10:38 PM

Why you always AGE DISCRIMINATE?!

Posted by Amelia | December 11, 2007 10:41 PM

You all who can go, must go! You don't even have to tell anyone who you are -- make 'em guess! You could seriously mess with people's heads that way.

Posted by Irena | December 11, 2007 10:54 PM

I'll be there.

I'll be there with bells on.

Posted by Ecce Homo | December 11, 2007 11:05 PM

the trolls are making me eat my words

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 11, 2007 11:19 PM

that's not the only thing you're going to eat.

Posted by Ecce Homo | December 11, 2007 11:44 PM

#14 and #16 are sock puppets.

I did not post that. They are using my name.

Cowardly little fuckhead. At least come up with an original name instead of trading on mine. Asshole...

Posted by ecce homo | December 12, 2007 12:26 AM

damn i should have known, he/she/it capitalized

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 12, 2007 12:59 AM

Cowardly little fuckhead? WHOA!!!

Posted by Amelia | December 12, 2007 2:01 AM

Honey Hole's fries are good, especially with a BLT and a beer... but I've not tried Quinn's or Presse for fries yet... I might have to now.

Thanks for the tip. ;)

Posted by Phelix | December 12, 2007 2:04 AM

Oh, gawd. Scary.

Posted by violet_dagrinder | December 12, 2007 3:25 AM

Good Lord... this comment thread is a little frightening (or maybe I just haven't had my caffeine dose this morning)... maybe it'd be better for me to give Moe's a wide berth Thursday.

Posted by James | December 12, 2007 7:43 AM

It occurs to me to wonder, as it is so easy to forge one's name here, how easy will it be to forge one's nametag Thursday? Probably harder for the cowardly little fuckbag (for once ecce is too mild) to really go through with, but how would you know?

Posted by Fnarf | December 12, 2007 7:52 AM

Tempting.. I may show, could be interesting.

Posted by Homo Will | December 12, 2007 7:53 AM

I was just thinking the same thing as Fnarf. After all, how could anyone really prove they were the real "____"?

Posted by kid icarus | December 12, 2007 8:05 AM

Email addresses, folks. You prove who you are when you give your correct email.

Posted by Matt from Denver | December 12, 2007 8:23 AM

If all imitators were as obvious as that one, no problem. No capitals? "With bells on"? Right. Whereas @17 effortlessly conveys a certain je ne sais quoi that is ecce.

Similarly, certain other distinctive personalities would be a real challenge to fake -- Fnarf? Poe? Catalina? MJ? Good luck! I almost hope someone tries it -- bring on the drama!

BTW, this whole thing would rock as a masquerade.

Posted by Irena | December 12, 2007 8:25 AM

Fnarf, no need to get your panties in a bunch. It would be pretty damn easy for the slog staff to determine real identities here if things truly got out of hand. Someone has posted using my very distinctive name and I'm sure its happened to others too.

As for Thursday, I guess you just won't know if people are who they claim to be.

Posted by Not ecce homo | December 12, 2007 8:41 AM

Wait... Fnarf, you guys have nametags at this shindig? Fuck, no!

Posted by James | December 12, 2007 9:07 AM

Unfortunately, I won't be able to BS who I am. I can however write all of the other handles I use on the bottom of my nametag. You know, the ones I use when I know I'm going to say something really offensive that I don't have the balls to own. Problem is it changes every time.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 12, 2007 10:12 AM


Watching someone who uses an alias getting pissed at someone else for using the same alias just makes me chortle with glee at the self-evident irony of it all!

Using YOUR name! LOL! That's rich! Rich-and-creamy, like fresh-churned butter!

Posted by COMTE | December 12, 2007 10:14 AM


Then you are an idiot.

If you can't figure out why it sucks to use someone elses moniker, then I should start posting a bunch of links to kiddy porn with your name as the poster.

Perhaps then you might get it.

Perhaps you are the sock-puppet? If so, you should be banned.

Posted by ecce homo | December 12, 2007 10:24 AM

I think the person who posted as Ecce Homo was just spoofing ecce homo. And ecce homo's reaction to Ecce Homo underscores the anger issues ecce homo has.

And no, I'm not the sockpuppet master who posted the Ecce Homo comments.

Posted by Matt from Denver | December 12, 2007 10:30 AM

Ecce, everybody loves you, in the same way we all love pancakes. You're great at first, but then you just get annoying and boring.

Posted by but we still wuvz u! | December 12, 2007 10:40 AM

Oh, ecce, ecce, ecce - your child-like - or should I say childish? - naivete is a continual source of amusement to me!

Now you've done gone and bloviated yourself into a corner, because the second you try to follow-through on this pathetic "threat", it'll take someone in The Stranger's IT Department (or the IT staff of any other site where you might plant such a post) about two seconds to pull the static IP address from the post, and trace it back to - um, gee, quess what? - NOT to me, but to whomever actually posted the links.

See, 'cause that's how this Interwebby thing works - you are only "anonymous" to the extent that the people in charge of the sites you visit allow you to be. They know who you are, even if other posters don't, and they know how to track you down.

After that, it's a pretty simple matter to: A.) Ban the originator of the offending posts; B.) report them to their Internet Service Provider, who will no doubt: C.) immediately report them to the pertinent local constabulatory, who in turn will; D.) come a'knockin' on your door about fifteen minutes later.

Posted by COMTE | December 12, 2007 10:50 AM

Oh, but don't let my little admonishment stop you, ecce; if you truly wish to feel that rush of vengeful satisfaction by posting links to kiddie porn sites here under my "handle", then by all means -post away!

Posted by COMTE | December 12, 2007 10:55 AM

Coward, scumbag, and now, borderline retarded.

Posted by ecce homo | December 12, 2007 11:18 AM

Speaking of the mythos of online anonymity, ecce - how are things in the carpet laying biz these days? Be sure to say "howdy!" to Mr. B. for me!

Posted by COMTE | December 12, 2007 11:22 AM


That can be, and is considered by me, a form of aggressive intimidation.

I would seriously back off this line of attack.

Posted by ecce homo | December 12, 2007 11:37 AM


YOU call ME an "idiot", threaten to post illegal CHILD PORNOGRAPHY under my name, stalk MY WEB SITE - and I'M the one engaging in "aggressive intimidation"?!?


Posted by COMTE | December 12, 2007 11:47 AM

I'm shocked that COMTE is keeping up with this.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 12, 2007 11:54 AM

"Shocked" as in "truly shocked" Mr. Poe, or more like Basil Rathbone in "Casablanca" shocked?


Posted by COMTE | December 12, 2007 11:57 AM

Stalk your website?

Seriously, WTF?

Posted by ecce homo | December 12, 2007 11:58 AM

And no one threatened to post child porn under our name. I used it as a point to make about the problem of sock-puppetry. A problem that you denied was an issue.

But now apparently you are threatened by it.

Are you REALLY that retarded?

Posted by ecce homo | December 12, 2007 12:01 PM

Wow, ecce, your problems run deeper than I thought. Get help before you hurt someone.

Posted by Matt from Denver | December 12, 2007 12:01 PM

"our" should be "your"

Posted by ecce homo | December 12, 2007 12:03 PM


Shocked like Basil Rathbone shocked in Casablanca?!!

Surely you mean shocked like Conrad Veidt shocked in Casablanca.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | December 12, 2007 12:15 PM

Shit. I meant to say Claude Rains. :(

Posted by NapoleonXIV | December 12, 2007 12:16 PM

Basil Rathbone was in Casablanca?

Shocked as in "Mr. Poe is shocked", which is exclusive to moi.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 12, 2007 12:22 PM

Okay, in this particular instance, ecce is right:

I AM an idiot!

How I managed to get Rathbone & Rains mixed up is beyond me...

Posted by COMTE | December 12, 2007 1:06 PM

Oh, COMTE. You're so getting a hug.

Posted by Mr. Poe | December 12, 2007 2:51 PM

Will tech-hands be on hand to help me project my iPathetic visuals onto the side of wall? My 1st or 2nd BFF from 6th grade has a brief cameo in this video.
