Now 40% more metrosexual. :3
what a wonderful hat.
There's an uncanny parallel between Coney Island and the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Opposite coasts, but it just looks like the skylines reversed. From around the same time period too, IIRC.
Is there no place on earth I can go to escape Scotty the Blue Bunny?!
If you hate me, please just come out and say it.
Dear San Francisco,
Is there any variety of weirdness which is not featured in your parades? Just asking.
Despite all appearances, the Mermaid Parade is an east coast event: Coney Island, Brooklyn, to be specific.
My best friend was at the Mermaid Parade as well. He sent me a pic of him posing with a lobster on Monday morning.
Sadly, my immediate reaction to that last one is "Tick/Arthur Mashup". With, um, high heels. whatever
Tick/Arthur mash-up with American Maid's heels thrown in for spice.
That's the ticket.
Dude ... that's totally what I thought.Well, more specifically, "I am not a bunny-man! I'm a moth!"
Lookie here, it's Semi-celebrity Todd Robbins!
Scotty the Blue Bunny has lost weight! Lookin' good, you know, for a guy in a sheer bunny outfit.
he quit drinking!
his stage performances are pretty much the same -- he just rambles a little less. still crass as ever :)
Thanks so much for the URL. I live in NYC, happened upon the blue bunny (as we called him) one night in the Village, and we had fun with him hanging a bit between sets. He looks SO much better than the pics on his website-- yes, crass as ever, but fun.
It's just like I've always said.
law enforcement Segways in some of those pictures?
I think I'd pay good money to see a Segway pursuit through a Mermaid Parade.
They didn't even have any coordinated moves. They just milled about, looking unnecessarily stern.
What I don't understand is why there were so many vikings. Is there some viking/mermaid connection I'm missing? Or is it just that vikings are the new zombies?
I'm going to guess it's the "Little Mermaid" connection. Hans Christian Anderson being Danish and all.
Lindsay at Majikthise posted some good pix from the parade too. (She posted them one by one, so I'm just linking to her home page.)
