Oh the good times!

Back in the good ol’ days Myla Goldberg and I used to sit around on the couch at Boardwalk Apartments (probably not even called that any more) in East Orlando and drink cheap alcohol, munching on our vegetarian snacks.

Would you believe she’s married and has a real life now?

One thing remained slightly constant, though. She and the Macrame Bird of Prey got together and started recording a new podcast and blogging over at The Five Percent Rule. Do check it out.

Most recently, I’ve been recording a few shows at Bringing Art and Technology Together, and for the past few years at the DrupalEasy Podcast.

Podcasts keep getting recorded, and PFAs keep doing their thing. Into their thirties.

The top 100 PFA figures of all time

The self-aware PFAs that we are, we took a step back from our category and tried to think of the 100 public figures you’ve just GOT to know if you want to be a pretentious fuck. These can be artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, actors, thinkers, politicians, whatever.

Grandma Party Returns, 4/7/7

For those of you that don’t know, you can hear some of our previous talks about Grandma Party in past episodes:
Posts tagged as Grandma Party on PFAlliance.BlogSpot.com

YO YO YO GRANDMA PARTY PEOPLE!

We didn’t forget about you, and we hope you have not forgotten us.

Looky here…

The third randomly intervaled Grandma Party Bazaar is happening on
April 7th 2007 in the luxurious Stardust Parking
Lot.

If you are receiving this email it means you were a vendor at a
pervious bazaar. We want to give top priority to you guys. You can
secure your spot in one of two ways:

You can sign up by sending 25 dollars through pay pal to Casey
Or
You can save 5 bucks and pay Casey 20 dollars at the EARLY VENDOR SIGN
UP MEETING on January 15th at 8 PM at Stardust.

If neither of these is possible, get in touch with casey (via above email or myspace) and a special
emergency plan can be put into action, just because we love you that
much.

When you sign up please give a description of what your
booth will hold and also if you plan on having a tent. This will help
us when we make the layout for the whole bazaar.

More information will be coming at you soon. Expect the normal or not
so normal grandma party shenanigans.

Loves
Grandma Party

P.S. …. JT will be back in town and he wants to see all of you.
