V is for Very Odd

Last night on the way to the movies, my two friends and I were in a fit of laughter. About what? It’s a had to be there kind of thing. Well in the middle of our hyena soundtrack my friend who was driving screamlaughs, “LOOK!”. And to our surprise this is what we found:

imageSpotting this dude brought our laughter to a whole other level. Realizing  he’s also listening to murderous rage-y music took it to outerspace. If this instance was a scary movie we’d be screaming or dead, but alas, this is real life, so it was just funny – no blood, guts or gore, just three girls pointing in a masked metal-heads direction laughing like we had just discovered funny.

When I could breathe I asked him, “Are you alone, driving a car with a mask on?” and he told us that his friend was behind him. Then we asked him to lift his mask, which he did – and shockinling his face was not mangled, he did not have a tear drop tattoo underneath his eye or blood caked into his hair. He was a cute kid – prob around twenty. Somebody asked him, “Why are you wearing a mask?” And he looked at us with a face that begged ‘don’t judge me’ and he said so sincerely, “I just like wearing a mask.”

…Life is interesting.

Rainbow cake!

This was really easy to make thanks to Omnomicon. I didn’t use soda though, I used eggs, water and vegetable oil like a normal person.

Oh and thanks reddit.com…without, I would have never found the instructions to make a cake that looks like reddit user MrUnicorn’s poop.

The Boardy Barn

I was a Boardy Barn virgin until last year. It’s the most disgusting yet fun place on earth. The Boardy Barn is in Hampton Bays on Long Island in New York.  The party takes place part outside, part under a red and white circus tent and part inside.

This year’s first visit to the barn was at on Memorial Day weekend. The line was insanely long but thankfully a few of my best friends are locals. What does that mean? We don’t wait on line, no biggie.

Almost 3/4 of the Boardy Barn Line

This is us walking in…You can see pics from the Boardy Barn on their website. They have an old guy in lawn chair taking pictures as you walk in; the website says he’s called “Big Dave”. He’s not very big, but he does look homeless.

Our bad ass friend Kasia and some others walking in

The Barn is great. It’s only open Sundays (and the occasional Monday) 4 pm to 8 pm. (12 pm on holidays). All they play is wedding hits like ‘Sweet Carolione’ & ‘Shout’. The whole place sings together and everybody dances…oh and everybody day drinks…heavily.

If you’re a recovering binge drinker do not go to The Barn. This is not a place that you go to sip on a beer in the sun. This is a place where the maximum amount of beers you can get at a time is 20 – and that pisses people off. The beers are $2 – and somehow I know people who have dropped $100 in 3 hours.

Don’t wear nice clothes or shoes. The place is disgusting, which is why it’s so much fun. Get ready to have beer poured all over you, intentionally (don’t get caught) or unintentionally.

Local tradition: If you’re a Boardy Barn virgin, you can’t hold your own beer. This means your friends or strangers will put a beer to your mouth and let it flow into it at whatever speed they like. You can’t drink a beer that fast? Oh well you’re going to get wet. And when the beer is empty the cup is getting crushed on your head.

The floor is cement with holes that fill with beer and people’s sweat. You will never see the holes until after you step in them.

Your shoes will be covered in this cement like goop that hardens after you. I think it’s a mixture of beer and the adhesive from the sticker paper. (Every time you go to the bar for beers the bartender will give you a bunch of stickers). The stickers are the Boardy Barn’s signature happy face hearts with sunglasses. People go nuts for the stickers, they’ll put them everywhere. (On our way to the Barn on Memorial Day we were pointing out Barn goers 1 mile away from the bar because they were covered from head to toe)I’ve got a couple stuck to me in the pic below.

Edited because I was being obscene 😉

If you’re a person who can’t handle being in a crowd, the Barn is not for you. You need to handle the fact that you are going to be stepped on, spilled on, pushed over, elbowed – but it’s all in good fun. And if it’s not the guys in orange are security and they will kick you out – and it will be embarrassing and it will hurt (they’re not very gentle). And they take things really seriously, I almost got kicked out last summer for “arc-ing” my beer. Apparently you can dump beer but you can’t throw it. Don’t take my word for it.

Memorial Day Weekend at the Barn

If you’ve never been to the Boardy Barn you have to go at least once. People take buses, trains, cabs, cars from all over just to experience the mayhem. It’s open rain or shine. (The first time I went it was pouring and it was awesome) It was a really soggy but ridiculously fun party.
