Josh and I went to see Flogging Molly at Stubb's tonight.

I really like that venue, but the ampitheatre needs a steeper rake. I couldn't see shit but backs and heads.

Anyway, one thing we did see was a kid in strange garb. Which led me to ask:Hipster or Rumspringa? )

For those of you on my flist who are familiar with Tory Cassis's album "Anywhere But Here," and are also fans of Supernatural, [livejournal.com profile] airspaniel and I suggest you listen to the whole album through, thinking about the show. (This may only apply to [personal profile] sugar, [livejournal.com profile] donnagirl, and maybe some other old-guard Fruheads..)

The song, "Leaning on the Stair" straight sounds like the entire fucking premise of the show.

Every song that came up, [livejournal.com profile] airspaniel and I laughed harder and harder.

I'll try and get a copy up for those of you who haven't heard it.

But omg. LULZ.

I went through the Yuletide collection and have put together a list of my favorites. You guys are going to think I'm crazy for the variety of fandoms in here. I know I kinda think so.

The Roommate of +10 Confusion, Foxtrot/Calvin and Hobbes crossover, gen - Jason Fox and Calvin as freshmen year roommates. Yes, Hobbes is present.

This Kid I Once Knew , Calvin and Hobbes futurefic, gen - Suzie Derkins in college. Adorable.

Faldi Faldonza, Disney Princesses, gen - Princesses Tiana, Belle, and Mulan get all bad ass.

Guns 'n' Neuroses Frasier/Supernatural crossover, gen - It was about that time the Crane boys found themselves in a whole heap of trouble.

Carpenter Christmas Dresden Files, bookverse, gen - What it says on the tin. Full of hearts and holly.

A Great Harry Dresden Fic Whose Title Is Super Spoilery for Changes, Dresden Files, bookverse, gen - What it says on the tin. But gutting as hell.

The Start of a Beautiful Something Futurama, mature - Leela/Fry/Bender threesome fic. Swear to god, I didn't need brain bleach after reading this.

Lights Across the Sound The Great Gatsby, slash, mature - Nick/Gatsby. Yeah, all right.

A Day in the Life "Code Monkey" by Jonathan Coulton - Code Monkey is gender queer. And Code Monkey like you.

Masks Upon Masks Kick-Ass, teen - Hit-Girl grows up awesome.

Triton's Cove, The Little Mermaid, teen - So for some reason this year, there are a bunch of really fucking smart Little Mermaid fics, this being the first one I read.

Fish Out of Water - And another.

Mysterious Fathoms Below - And another.

The Skin Beneath The Skin - And another. This one aches.

Part of Your World - Last one! I think it may be my favorite, for sheer mindfuckery. Yeah, that's what I said.

The Gift of Love, Love Actually, Mature, threesome - Juliet, Peter, and Mark figure out a new arrangement.

To Say 'I Love You' Right Out Loud Love Actually, gen - This was really cute, and I liked how it followed the pattern of the movie.

These Things That We've Done, HIMYM, teen - An adorable look at how Robin and Barney work.

Somewhere A Clock is Ticking, HIMYM, teen - So help me, someone actually wrote a fic that made me believe Robin and Barney would have a child together.

Just a Crush, HIMYM, femmeslash, mature - Straight up Robin/Lily smut. Also, poignant. And hot.

Heffalump, HIMYM, threesome, mature - Lily gets the belt! \o/

Critical Theory, Gargoyles, gen - Alex Xanatos has to write an essay about A Midsummer Night's Dream and realizes he can get an inside scoop. Maybe.

Ramona's Law of Reciprocal Actions, Ramona Quimby, teen - OMG RAMONA AS A TEENAGER AND IT'S ADORABLE HEARTS AND STARS AND FLOWERS.

Eyjafjallajökull, Sandman/Current events crossover, gen - All I can really say is "lulz."

L?Y, THE YELLOWJACKETS VIDEO FOR "YOU BELONG WITH ME," slash, all ages - OH MY GOD SOMEONE WROTE FANFIC ABOUT MY COLLEGE WTF. The fic itself is actually kinda terrible, but it reads like someone who actually maybe knows someone who went to UR wrote it. And that's hilarious. If you don't know what the fic is based on, click here.

In an e-mail, Eugene Delgaudio (R-VA) denounced the TSA’s non-discrimination policy as “the federal employee’s version of the Gay Bill of Rights” and declared that the next person who pats you down at the security gate could be a homosexual, “getting pleasure from your submission.”

Back when I first started my job, Work Husband told me about a local industry guy who held amazing Rock Band parties. The rules were simple: You had to be invited by him, or someone who'd attended a previous party, you had to bring a six of a beer you'd never had before, and the words "work," "job," and "office" are verbotten to the "take a shot" degree. All legit. Work Husband promised he'd let me know when the next party was.

It was tonight.

He sent out an email with the party information, which I forwarded to Josh, and we decided to go.

So tonight, we got in the car, plugged the address into the GPS and headed on our way. We got off the highway and turned down a road where the houses immediately got Nice. We came upon a house lit up like a Christmas tree, with cars parked up and down the road near it. Even from the road, we could see people hanging out on the deck.

"This looks like it might be the place," I said to Josh.

We parked and walked up onto the deck of one of the most gorgeous houses I've ever seen. The deck where we saw people gathered, easily most of the size of my last apartment, had a full ten-foot bar being manned by an attractive woman. The host came up to us and I introduced myself, saying I worked with Work Husband.

"And, as per the rules, here is the beer I have never had before." I handed over my six of Full Sail IPA, two of which were opened by the bartender and handed back to us.

Josh and I sipped at our beers and stood agog at the sheer gorgeousness of the house. Inside were black and white photos of old Austin. Above the bar was a flat screen showing the Phillies/Giants game, and another impressive television inside showing college football.

The crowd seemed a little off, but everyone seemed friendly. The host was emphatic we have some of the jalapeno sausages he'd gotten, they were delicious. Josh had one, but I wasn't very hungry yet. I was content with the fritos and a really delicious queso also on offer.

I realized it had been over an hour since I'd spoken to Work Husband, who lives not far from me, and he wasn't at the party yet.

I took a good look at the crowd.

There were no comic book, science fiction, or otherwise coded t-shirts. Also, for a supposedly epic Rock Band Party, there was nothing set up where I could see, even though the living room could have housed a pretty sick setup.

I took out my phone and looked at GoogleMaps, which I'd checked earlier to see about how long the drive would be. I tried to get My Location, but the deck was covered enough that I couldn't get the satellite signal.

I told Josh I would be right back, and I went down to the street to see if I could see any numbers on the house. While there, I got signal and I saw that our intended destination was at the end of a cul-de-sac...which were certainly were not.

I crept back up to the deck and I showed Josh. He said he'd go down to the car and check that GPS, then text me once he got that info. Once there, he noticed that the house across the street was a full hundred-block lower than where we were headed.

We were at the wrong fucking party.

Since Josh was already at the car, I, thankful I was wearing all black, slunk back down to the street, and darted to the car. Once there, Josh and I laughed really, really hard, then drove the block and a half to the correct house, also impressive, also lit up and with a "Yes, we're open" sign hanging on the front door.

We walked in, and there was Work Husband, about to call me.

We all headed to the kitchen, where our host was, and I said,

"We apologize for coming without beer or anything, but have we got a story for you..."

We proceeded to have a fantastic evening.

That, and now, "Uh, Josh...I think we're at the wrong party" will never not be funny.

This is Geoffrey Arend:

You might know him better for his famous voiceover role from the 90s, Charles Ruttheimer:

In a turn of events, Daria creator Glenn Eichler could never have predicted, Geoffrey Arend is married to Christina Hendricks.

Rrrrrrr, indeed!
