F Plus Live is confirmed for the weekend of Saturday August 19th, a little less than two months from now. I don't have the full slab of information to give you as that'll be clearer over the next week, but I did want to make sure to make the date public as soon as I could so everyone interested can make plans. If you can, please do. It'll be fun.

I was just thinking how I finally have a job that pays well enough and offers enough time off to just decide to go to something like this. It's such a surreal realization. Guess I'll have to make a point of putting money aside...

Or I can just book the hotel, get the time off, and use my card's points to halve the flight cost. I will be attending for certain.

I have the money set aside to attend, the time is another matter I'll need to get on to. Any recommendations for accommodation and the like? Minnesota's a bit outside of my sphere of general knowledge, much less Minneapolis and St Pauls.

Flights are BOOKED accommodation is BOOKED I am BOOKED get BOOKED MOTHERFUCKERS

Airbnb has a lot of availabilities right now, depending on what you're looking for, I'm seeing viable options for $40-$90/night. As for where, I'd try to Stay in Minneapolis (or St. Paul). Things get inconvenient when you get into the suburbs. Ideally, you want to be on the train line and that'll cover a lot of your transportation (the train runs underneath the airport, and a block away from one of the venues). 

Beyond that if you've never used Lyft before I'm sure a couple people here (myself included) would be happy to hook you up with the referral credit.

So - amazingly, luck would have it that I'll be landing in the US in August 18th, except in St. Louis!

If I wanted to - I could probably make it to this one - except....

Problem 1: Google Maps says it's an over 8 hour drive to Minneapolis, so that's gonna be tough.
Problem 2: A flight over and back is ~200$ each way which isn't a lot compared to how much I'm paying to get TO the US, but I'm already paying lots of money on this trip so I'd rather minimize my expenses.

So my question is really - does anyone have any tips - if I wanted to make it - on how to get from St. Louis to Minneapolis and back within a reasonable time, without breaking the piggy bank, and without crashing a rental into a ditch due to sleep deprivation and jet-lag?

Also - really thinking about it - if I decide to make it in the last minute - can I just come up to the airport on the day, get the first flight to minneapolis, then after the show go back to the airport and get a flight back to St. Louis? Do inland flights even work that way in the US or is that a movie myth?


Edit:
Turns out I can actually get a round trip for 280$ which is really great, and there are flight leaving in the appropriate times in each direction, so this looks promising!

Edit 2: Fuck it, I'm coming to  F PLUS LIVE!

I'm budgeting what I might spend and had to start over because I belatedly remembered that I'll be going to a state with sales tax. I barely understand the concept so this might be difficult. Is it on all purchases? I should probably look this up...
Title: F PLUS LIVE: August 19th, 2017
Post by: Lemon on June 27, 2017, 12:50:16 pm
In Minnesota, sales tax is on every product except food and clothing. And food is tricky because food isn't taxed but snacks are. The classic example is that Marshmallows are a food and therefore not taxed, mini-marshmallows are a snack and are taxed. Minnesota's state rate is 6.9%, Minneapolis adds another 0.5% on top of that.

If I remember correctly, the money I spent going to restaurants and bars in Portland was about the same as what I'd expect in Minneapolis.

If you want to go on a museum tear, I would also like to recommend the Walker (https://walkerart.org/), which has the awesome Multiples exhibit on display. The Mercer Cunningham exhibit currently on display won't be there by the time you get in, but the other two exhibits that will be there look fucking awesome. And there's also a bar and a movie theater and HOLY SHIT, GUYS, ART IS SO COOL.

This city is also host to America's first ever basilica, the Basilica of Saint Mary (http://www.mary.org/). I haven't gone to it yet, but I'm looking for a good excuse to.

MIA is terrific. It's a hybrid art/history museum and there's a lot to see. The Walker is also worth a visit, they just renovated the Sculpture Garden. The Walker specializes in Modern Art with an emphasis on MODERN ART so there will be pieces in there that will make you angry. But that's part of the fun, imo.

I recommend going for a bike ride on the greenway as well. It's very scenic, and the city in general feels pretty bike friendly. You can get a bike for cheap from a Nice Ride station. A nice long ride is a good way to combat an awful hangover, especially if you eat breakfast poutine beforehand.

It very much is. You can also get around on the streets. The streets are generally good and people are very much aware of the Door Rule, but there are some streets that are an absolute hell to ride on. The area around the Walker Art Museum is all right, but the moment you pass the path towards the underpass that leads to the Cedar Line Trail and get onto Kenwood St., you're going to have a bad time.

I've actually never done a trip like this for myself before, so I guess some younger part of me is squeezing it's way out. I'll be freshly 30 by the time I get out there, so I guess I took my time...

I've tentatively planned to see the MIA, the Walker, Russian art museum, Minnesota Center for Book Arts, and the Weisman (if not too far). I didn't know about the basilica. Depending on when they have service (so I'm not interrupting), and if they're open to visitors, I'd be fun to sketch.

Yes (https://thefpl.us/wrote/f-plus-live-6). The live show is at 1111 S. Washington (https://goo.gl/maps/XgrPmiotMkJ2).

ALSO: Note on that. Because we're going to be taking over the whole bar, we're also going to need to charge a cover. There's a couple reasons for this, but the most straightforward is that regular-assed people generally don't respond terribly well to walking into a place and seeing a comedy show they weren't expecting. In the past that wasn't a problem, this time around we're going to need to set the expectation that this is A Thing just so we don't have the problem with people not understanding what's going on and trying to do the thing that shitty people do when they're confronted with the very idea of live comedy.

The actual charge is being negotiated, probably somewhere around $10.

I just got my plane tickets, too. Let's high five!!! Assuming you're also a moron who's flying in at 5:45 AM Saturday morning. I'll be too tired to high-five anyone at the actual show.

The Friday before is the first day of the semester for me, too, so I'll be up continuously most likely from 6:00 AM Friday (because I've got a 7:20 AM class) until like 3:00 AM Sunday. I think I might need a nap or two in that time.

This is an odd suggestion, but I'm gonna make it anyway: The Minneapolis Central Library. I've been there a bunch of times and the building is just gorgeous.  The bulk of it is a traditional library, but the fourth floor contains the Special Collection; the Special Collection has a number of limited edition prints of ornithology books and WWII posters which are just really interesting to look at if you like old printing methods.

Now, the Central Library is still a library, and it's downtown besides, so the perimeter is a celebration of vagrancy and the ground floor restroom is fucking shocking, but once you get inside the place where the books are it's quite nice.

The Hen House on 8th st downtown is pretty ok, it's been a reader tradition to eat there when we've been staying downtown. Plus Bill Clinton ate there once I guess.

Made it to my hotel. Any place in the downtown area that I should definitely go to for breakfast? I plan on looking around but I'll take suggestions too.

For downtown, Hell's Kitchen does a good breakfast. If you feel like traveling a bit, Ideal Diner or French Meadow.

Update: Went to Hell's Kitchen for breakfast, wound up ordering walleye tacos and a bloody mary. The place is great, and very popular. If you're just one person they seat you at the bar right away. Plus one section has live music sometimes. Highly recommend if anyone's looking for a place, they do a bit of everything it looks like.

I tried to buy most of the readers a drink cause that's a long-standing dream of mine. I think I hit about half.

Also, I must have had like 6 or 7 drinks (oops) and I'm hangover free. This is the BEST weekend so far.

It was still amazing though, definitely gonna drop by the after party for a little bit later on.

Hey, as you might have noticed, I was taking a fuck ton of pics last night (most of them turned out terrible, yay). This did include some of people reading lines from the cauldron. I'm sending them to Lemon with note about it. Not that he would post your pics online without permission, but I just wanted to assure peeps that I'm not handing these out for nefarious purposes or anything. There's a fairly large trans population on the forum, and I don't want any of them to feel uncomfortable attending the live events. If you're still concerned, please drop me a message!!

Everyone involved in F Plus Live, ridiculist audience and everyone in between, was amazing. I have video of Frank West reading and JW Friedman singing. I have 95% of Lemon reading but for about 30 seconds I laughed too hard and hit the wrong button, closing my camera app. Dammit. Once I'm not drunk, tired, or on an airplane I'll find a way to share what I got.  Thanks everyone so much for this great event. I loved chatting with Beelzeboob, Cheapskate, Journeyman Faguar, STOG, Trav, Victor... Everyone made the weekend amazing.

But MOST IMPORTANTLY BUNNYBREAD HIGH FIVED ME TO THE GROUND AND SIGNED MY RESULTING BANDAGES.

Ok, I really would like to express sincere* gratitude for just a moment.


First I would like to thank all y'all F+ans for coming out. You wonderful crazy fucks are beautiful.  I wish I could have accidentally assaulted every last one of you just so I could sign your bodies and get some mini gropes in.  Again, I'm sorry about that, Ms. Game.  I've sent more than a few people to the hospital from dap-related incidents. 

Now, a hearty FUCK YEAH to all planners, readers, submitters, and general laborers who made this weekend beautiful. There is a whole lotta goddamn work that goes into this stuff.

All I do is show up and get drunk. Which leads me to thanking every fine person who bought me a drink. The Miques and the BeezelBoobs and the Legz of the world,  you guys are America's unsung heroes.  And I don't know if you picked up on my subtle hints, but I love America. 

It was wonderful to see old fuckers and meet new fuckers.  Keep on fuckin' in the free world.

And even though all the video may not work out, y'all are gonna love the recordings when it is done being fine-tuned by JimmyFranks. He and Boots are the Dynamic Duo of sound and deserve a round of applause. As always, BootsAoke was a wonderful cap-off to the weekend. 

Send warm thoughts and e-hugs to all my Babies Bootsy, Jimmy, Squiddy, Bozarthy, Nutshelly, Victory, Kummyquatty, FrankyWesty, Snoop Stoggy Stog, Bumpy, Louzee Q. Fernandez, Achilleazy and so many others that I could ruin the names of.

Then there's my little Lemon who deserves a fucking week off from work but is instead slogging through his day right now. Just like me.
If y'all haven't ordered a shirt or sticker (or if you're still Guesting this instead of buying a Ballp.it account) then the time is right now. Show some love! (baby don't hurt me) for all the love he's put in.


* Fun fact, I thought Sincerity was simply a name that I've seen on multiple strippers.  Turns out it's a real thing!

Each year I struggle between catching up with old friends and making new ones.  There is never enough time for either one, but if the weekend went on any longer I'm quite sure I'd be dead.

I met a very nice mix of forum names and real life names.  Everyone I met was fun and nice and awesome and I hope they felt at least partly the same way about me.  As I've said many times before, our fans are good people.

To the ones who tried so valiantly to buy me a drink, I am sincerely grateful for the generosity and I hope you didn't take my refusal as anything other than a strange quirk of mine.  Next year I will buy you a drink and we'll call it even.

Lemon, thank you for your hard work and your hospitality.  Boots, thank you for your hard work and your bear hugs.  Kumquat, thank you for making whirlyball a reality.  Bunnybread, nobody squeezes my nipples quite like you do, so, um, thanks.

Now that I have a spare, rested moment...

I wanted to say thanks again to everyone who came out and made the weekend so great. It's only that much fun because you all came out and made it fun.

I know I talked to a lot of people here and there, but got very few names. That was fine, though, because everyone was really nice.

I'm very grateful to everyone who listens and supports this show. Even if you didn't attend, you still make the show what it is. It's very touching to have your support.

Once I get some time to myself, I'll work on that Whirlyball highlight reel.

Now that I've gotten a chance to sit down and not either be working or sleeping...

I had a fantastic time during Live. Congrats to all the readers, who kill it every year. Congrats to everyone who made it out, who help make this show bigger and better each year. Congrats to the people who support the podcast, who this show is for.

I look forward to this weekend every year. I don't get out much, and it's pretty much the only time I really get to go out and hang with a bunch of weirdos from the internet that have the same odd hobby that I do. I've been having an incredibly rough couple of months, and this show and the people in the community here have been making what is pretty much the worst time of my life right now enjoyable. I wanna give shoutouts to Lemon, with which I had a great heart-to-heart at karaoke; Victor, who bought me drinks as much as he could (the Minnesotan in me still bought myself a few drinks); and for sure STOG, for letting me crash at his place over the weekend.

Highlights of the weekend (that I remember):
Ironicus and I seeing Kumquat's suit the first time
Achilles plastering 6 temporary tattoos all over his body
Jay starting a DDP chant
The devil's conga-line
Bunnybread's high-five of doom
Tagging along with Jack Chick, Jay, Achilles, and STOG to Surley for some beer, food, and bullshitting
Jay and I being stupid wrestling fans all throughout karaoke
MODEST MOUTH
NO DIGGITY

The highlight of my visit to F Plus Live was the time I got to spend with Guest, who is incredibly charming and funny.

but seriously it was fun
Cheapskate, August 21, 2017, 10:49:38 am

I am incredibly surprised and glad to hear I'm a highlight! I literally stopped into ballpit today thinking 'maybe I should apologize for being a very loud drunk'

That said I definitely had a blast, hope to be around for more F Plus Lives in the future! I swear to whoever I talked about my planned doc about that I'll actually get working on that

Post by: Bunnybread on August 27, 2017, 10:32:44 pm
All the bullshit about Guest's behavior reminded me, I wanted to express a few regrets. 

I didn't get to duet with Jack Chikka Bow Wow or Sir Quat of Kum.  Next time, babies. 

I really neglected on getting ballpitter's names.  I remember meeting people and getting the idea that they were part of this place but never getting 'proper' names.  For those of you that I interacted with, I hope I at least sexually harassed you a little as thanks for being awesome fans.  Tatooed leg darling, pro-wrestler-sized business-dressed dude, lotsa piercings chick, you are not forgotten.  Semper Fi.

Oh, and most important!  I think I forgot to take my goddamn shirt off during Victor's lap dance.  It's been awhile since I stripped for money, or groceries, so I am clearly out of practice.  I also didn't get to switch clothes with any disturbed flashers at a train stop.  I'm getting positively demure, these days.  I think the only folks who saw me naked were Squiddy and Boots?  And that was nothing sexual, they were just eating sushi off my body.

Jimmyfranks has all the audio edits done. I'm doing all the stuff involved to get this thing online, so this'll probably be available to listen to either tonight or tomorrow.

That's for an MP3 release. As for the video release, here's what I'll say:

I've got some (not all, some) video files of the event, which are just okay (cheap camcorder on a tripod). I've also got a couple hundred photos, mostly by Sanguinary Novel, some of which are quite good.

If someone feels like cutting together audio and video and sending it to me to put on the F Plus channel, l'chaim that sounds terrific, I will send you the assets and you tell me when it's done.

But the audio sounds great, all credit to Boots & Jimmyfranks, because wrangling the audio at Grumpys couldn't have been easy.

Due to the variety of video sources and qualities, syncing everything up is taking a lot more work than I thought.

There's going to be a few moments in some of the videos where there's no image to show, and I was thinking of putting in some sort of Satanic loading screen, but I'm no artist.
I could do some finagling and slap something together from pre-existing materials, but that wouldn't be much fun for anyone.

So I want to reach out to any of the more artistic members of ballpit and ask how many people would be willing to conjure something up to fill some empty space.
There's quite a number of spaces that need filling. It's only a few seconds here and there in the first part, but parts 2 and 3 have long stretches with nothing but audio that could use a lot of art.

I'm keeping the videos at 1280x720, and it doesn't even have to be that big. If you want to just make a pentagram or a floating Satan head I can just center it and make it rotate.
Just post it here or send it to me however you like, and if I don't get anything I'll just fill the blank spots with pictures from the album or something.

I'd give it another week or so until I'm done.

Yeah, I've only got like 2 minutes of bumpgrrl, and we're completely missing video for Lemon+Audience and JW Friedman (Unless someone has more footage they can send me there probably just won't be any video for those two).

So there's a LOT of empty space that needs filling. Really, if anyone wants to make anything to put over the audio I'll take it. Drawings, photoshops, animate part of a reading, whatever you want to do I'm sure I can use it.

No promises but I'm going to brainstorm a bit tomorrow over an idea I had for bumpgrrl's reading. It's the sort of thing I won't need art skills to do but I don't want to commit to it because it may be a little painstaking.

Good luck finding stuff!

If animation's an option, could you make some of the snippets available as short magazines? Like maybe give a buffer of a second or two at the beginning and end of a part, then specify which section doesn't have video? You don't need to do this for every magazine that doesn't have video, but if you could provide a few, then maybe I can cook something up. It sounds like each part is only a second or two at most, so it wouldn't be too much of a hassle for me.
