Salon of Shame

Lovely Ariel of Electrolicious and the fine folks at A Guide To Visitors and putting on an event so excruciating that you won't be able to look right at it -- the only way to avoid being blinded by awkwardness will be to to view the spectacle through a tiny hole poked in a piece of paper.

Yes, inspired by the lovely Sarah Brown (it's "Lovely Monday," here at the yeti), they will be transplanting New York's Cringe to the left-coast and stymying Sarah. B's legion of trademark lawyer's by rechristening it "The Salon of Shame." This Wednesday, November 9th at 7 o'clock, watch in horror as folks take the stage to recite the most unbearably embarrassing poems, prose, and diary entries ever put on paper -- abominations of literatures that the readers themselves penned in their carefree days of youth and dumbness.

Read more about it at shame.electrolicious.com. Hope to see you there!

P.s. I neglected to mention that the folks at A Guide To Visitors are also lovely. I apologize for the oversight.

saw it in NYC and it is pain and joy in the same fail swoop. like being kicked in the testicles by a supermodel. actually, better than that.

hmm... i'll just have to post my most cringe-inducing poem ever here, as i'll be far from the event:

STAR WARS by Chris Young, 5th grade, 1979

Luke training to be a Jedi,
many remember
he destroyed the Death Star.
Not knowing if Darth Vader is dead,
thinking of the Princess,
a hero;
like a panther ...
waiting for adventure.

(man - i just got a wicked shiver of discomfort as i reread that...)

I love you for extending the deadline two days!!!! That rocks. Why can't everything be like this?

P.S. Can you extend it two months?

Make that two years!

Like a panther!! That was awesome.

You're so lovely, Mr. Baldwin.

I just want you to know that I actually attempted the illusion, above. That was really incredible...(how you got me to do something that dumb...)

I think there's a typo in the kitten post -- all that vanished was the humor.
