A myriad of different posts: featured attendees, titillating guest additions, Haiku Fridays, Wig Wednesdays, important information updates, and organic posts meant to make our lives just a touch more interesting. 

Guest Post: Selected guests will touch us from time to time, in whatever way he or she sees fit. We don't say no. We only say yes. And we take it. Period. Full Stop.  

Spotlight: This post features a highly anticipated attendee of Art Party 2014.  September 27th will be a night of people, not just art; and the featured attendees are the epitome of everything this Event represents. The force of these individuals will make your mouth water and your intellectual loins quiver in anticipation. We will strip down each guest (physically or metaphorically) and hand feed you their unique, decedent aura.

Wig Wednesdays: Art Party will quench its thirst for exhibitionism and its fascination with wigs by featuring a guest wearing the transformative accessory.  Are you thirsty?  Child please, I know you are.

Haiku Fridays: A throwback for some of you.  A virginal experience for others. Make your kireji strong, your kigo relevant, your morae structured and make Masaoka Shiki proud. Read Haikus from attendees and contributors.    

Attendees in the News:

The Real W. Hellams (Attendee)

As reported by News Channel 8's Arch Campbell, Bethesda resident, William Hellams, was caught in the area's most recent Sharknado while on his way to return some video tapes.  "Be careful outside today, dudes.  Watch out for Sharknados", said Hellams.  When asked about his physical and mental state after such a horrendously frightening experience he responded "I'm alive.... barely.  I tell you what, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned... or like a tornado full of ferocious sharks".      

Our readers might recall our first 'Spotlight' post, Ben Long, of West Virginia.  Recently, we caught wind of the terrible news that, due to a TED talk invitation, Mr. Long might have a conflicting appointment the same weekend as Art Party.  Mr. Long assuaged our fears by assuring us he will indeed be able to make Art Party AND provide said TED talk on 'Education in Travel', albeit the same weekend.  Our fears of his absence reemerged however, after seeing this recent news report about a fun couple in W.V. who sound eerily similar to Mr. Long and his date, Savannah. 

Biz Bone (Attendee)

Art Party attendee and budding thespian, Bizzy Fain, has recently made the short list to play a young Barkhad Abdi in Columbia Pictures’ upcoming prequel to “Captain Phillips”.  When asked about this positive step toward her dream to star in the first ever Somali bildungsroman, the method actress forcefully responded “LOOK AT ME.  Look at me.  I am the captain now”, then stared vacantly into the distance.  She responded in similar fashion to the 6 follow-on questions from our investigative reporters.  

B. Wood (Attendee and misunderstood) 

Our very own B-Wood has once again been publicly acknowledged for his philanthropic outreach to children.  Read more about Mr. Wood's attempt at charitable beneficence here:
