Changes With Party Crasher

posted by on September 19 at 13:00 PM


We’ve decided to shake things up a little bit in regards to our Party Crasher column: from now on, when you invite Party Crasher to your house party (, you never know which Stranger staffer you’re going to get to cover your party.

You may have noticed that David Schmader wrote Party Crasher last week. Here’s a taste:

One of these guys sports a button on his jacket, featuring what looks like the face of Mick Mars, the guitarist and ugliest member of Mötley Crüe. “Is that Mick Mars?” I ask the owner, who responds in the affirmative. He’s in a band—Ivory in Ice World—and wears the button to honor his status as “the Mick Mars of the group.” I ask him if this means he’s the guitarist or the ugliest member. “Both!” he replies.

It was a great Party Crasher. You may also have noticed that Christopher Frizzelle crashed Fnarf’s birthday in this week’s Party Crasher:

…he heard the word “incest” and said, “Incense?”


“Oh, incest,” Steve replied. “A game the whole family can play.”

Will Kelly O be the one to try your artichoke dip? Will Dan Savage attend your birthday party? Will Brendan Kiley leap from a second-story window onto a bus roof at your nephew’s Bar Mitzvah? Will Lindy West batter your piñata into submission? Will I make things a little more awkward at your gay orgy? You’ll have to invite us ( to your upcoming house party to find out.

That is a great looking hula hound.

The description of Fnarf's house as "three blocks north of the zoo" is killing me, and I'm not even sure if it was meant to be that funny.

Do you guys travel to the Eastside?

Kelly O has already been to one of my parties, and she got TWO Drunks of the Week out of it!

I'm very proud.

Third-story window, Mr. Constant. Just to set the record straight.

Where were you guys when I lived in a house on Capital Hill (near 12th & Aloha) back in the mid 90s? We had some great parties. Our most famous party crasher was Jared Lito, who racked up a $50 long distance call on my phone and stole some of my CDs. (Even if he hadn't done all that he was still a complete prick).

@elswinger: Uh, Jared Leto is teh hawtness, he totally gets a pass.

If I did this for a party, the person who comes will most likely be the only person who shows up.

Jared Leto needs to lay off the eyeliner. He's practically my age.

Hey, can someone from The Stranger editorial staff come to my birthday party on Nov. 1st?

Oh, wait. You ALL will be there!

@It's Mark Mitchell: He'll never be as pretty as you sweetie, even with eyeliner.

Jesus, that incest joke is older than I am. "Fuck it, I'm a rule-breaker" is MUCH funnier.

Posted by Fnarf | September 19, 2008 4:02 PM

The version I know is, "Incest is better when kept in the family."

Posted by Greg | September 19, 2008 4:05 PM

@7: I hav heard countless accounts of Jared Leto's douchbaggery (as experienced by people I know), and it has yet to dim the fires of my teenage lust for Jordan Catalono and his pretty, pretty face. But yeah, dude is a total wanker.
