SIDESHOW! Carnival of Smoke and Mirrors

Post by Killbuck » Wed Jan 07, 2015 6:15 pm

Happy Noo Year! Time again, to bring SIDESHOW back one more time, to BRC 15.

Gee, ya think this year's theme was made for us? Believe me, it took some heavy bribes of chili cheese corndogs.

So, Kil-luck,, Are they going to let you out of the home this year?.. Or are you planning a escape like before?. Don't let them catch you walking around without your helmet.. You know how you spaz out when you do the fish and hit your head..

Good luck on your fucking carnival this year.. Stop by Elliot's bike repair this year for a hello.. Don't forget the paper bags.. Don't want to scare to many folks..

I plan to escape. Just after I do, I'll call the home and ask to be connected to myself, just to be sure I really escaped.

Killbuck, I can't wait to see your camp again. I wanted a corn dog soooo bad but couldn't win one. (That may have been 2 years ago, but I still want one.) When they announced the theme everyone thought of you.

Haven't had the pleasure of visiting your camp yet, but I sure do like your promo graphics.

Elderberry, I've never made it to their camp for any of the scheduled events. Maybe we can get our shit together this year. You HAVE to go see it at least. The decorations are amazing.

Sounds like a plan!

To do and see everything and everyone I want to do and see, the event would need to be at least a month long. :shock:

A camp most sublime. I was privileged to experience a full display of sideshow mayhem in 2013 and I must say, I am still recovering from the shock!

stay tuned for a new updated location. not likely with illumination village on esplanade, but a stand alone...hopefully around 3 o'clock plaza thereabouts.

thanks killbuck and now i know the correct spelling

I guess "baited" would be like fish hook/bear trap breath which would not be pleasing at all :coffee:
