Don't try to drink a lot within a week of your 21st birthday. It'll hurt. I speak from experience.

The relationships ending were not directly related to the f plus shows, sadly, I just had two bad relationships that happened to be with people who did not enjoy the dramatic reenactions of Internet morons that the good people of the f plus provide. The stories are not fun sadly. Just passive aggression about me liking that ‘dumb show’ and/or me getting sloshed at the show and bad times happening on the way home. As happens.

As for the wife I will not even try. I am sufficiently superstitious now. Uh uh, f plus, you are not taking this from me, you questionably british-sounding sirens.

like, you could probably find a better way to display the lyrics, but this is a really neat thing I found searching for something fun for you guys to karaoke, the song itself is 99 years old, but it's still good

I’m a bit player in this podcast, and do close to none of the work required to make it go. For me it’s still a lark, a way to spend time screwing around with a friend group that I’ve known for years and love very much. The idea of having fans, that people want my autograph or a picture with me because I sit in my basement goofing off with my friends, is totally surreal and I don’t think I will ever come to terms with it.

That said, every time we do a live show I get to meet a bunch of people who are entertained by, and sometimes inspired by, our silliness. The first few times it was really awkward for me, but with each year I enjoy interacting with the fans more and more. You guys are a wonderful bunch, and it is a pleasure to spend a weekend being silly with you, and an honor that you want to spend a weekend being silly with me/us.  I’m sad the weekend is over and I’m already looking forward to next time.

Thank you for coming, thank you for listening, just thank you.

In the future, everyone will have their 15 followers of fame.Quote from

At the beginning of karaoke, I passed my phone around the room, insisting that other people post anything they wanted on my (bizarrely) very popular tumblr account (125k followers). Based on my limited understanding from my monster cockytics stuff, I guessed that several hundred people would see anything posted in the first minute or two. Since this very modest little 'e-fame' is something I neither merit nor deserve, it's made the last couple years kind of weird, but not unpleasantly so. And so, over the course of the night, I decided to give everyone else a try, if they wanted.

So just adding in my voice. I had a blast. This was my first Fplus Live, it was everything I imagined and more. Even though I'm awkward and shy and I didn't talk/say hi to everyone I wanted to I still had so many positive experiences. Had a great talk with JW Freidman. Got to have brunch with Stog, Frank West, and Jack Chick. Appreciated art with the help of Chai. And got to know Jam Engulfer. Thanks for tagging along with us Jam, you're a rad individual and I hope you had as much fun as my partner and I did. I will 100% do another Fplus Live again (money permitting). Even though I'm still tired getting sick I'd do it all again.

Thanks to everyone!

Gotta say that I am thoroughly disappointed that the Halloween play in the first part (???? the bird one???) didn't devolve into drunken pantomime call and response at points. Really would have added to the traumatic Christian upbringing feel of the thing.

Also, I am hankering for the video of whatever on earth the first reading was.

Does that mean you liked it?  I never appeared at your shoulder to check up on it.  I like recommending beer to people, and I like it even more when someone is pleasantly surprised.

This is such a late reply, but yes!  I normally hate IPAs but that one was smooth and drinkable even to my weak baby tastebuds.  (This reply is late because I've been participating in an f-plus favorite pastime, NaNoWriMo)

The recordings sound fantastic and it's great to relive the show when not drunk on chocolate cocktails.  me and my friend were the drunk woo girls in the front row and i'm sooooo sorry.

The fact is that "Recycling" by Puppet2Puppet Productions is a real play submitted to puppetresources.com (https://www.puppetresources.com/index.php?what=viewscript&scriptID=463)

Whether Puppet2Puppet Productions is a troll, a really misguided youth pastor, or an actual puppet writing scripts for other puppets remains unclear.

Also, I realize now I didn't write anything about this magical weekend in the Emerald City.

I have to thank all of you for coming out and having such a great time, and a big thanks to all the Readers who came out and did such a great job. I was especially nervous because I had foolishly volunteered to put together the programming for the show. I thought I had timed out everything perfectly, but the first half of the show went TWICE AS LONG as I had originally allotted for. WHOOPS!

If you were in the audience for the show, I cannot thank you enough for your supportive energy and for making the experience so, so worth all the time it took highlighting scripts and going to Kinkos to duplicate "LaTawnya, the Naughty Horse." Having that energy all the way through is what made all of this really possible. It was also a lot of fun to meet people after the show and during karaoke. Sorry that I am a weird person IRL. I was in an especially weird, zonked-out state because I had been awake for over 24 hours straight by the time we left the venue. WHOOPS!

A big thanks to Jimmymostfranks for the hours of legwork getting the show together and for running tech while performing. I am very glad I got to visit Seattle for the first time by virtue of your invitation. Thank you to Lemon and Boots for bringing their personal touches to the show and wrangling everyone. And thank you to all the Ridiculists who made it out to Seattle this time around. Biggest thank you to Montrith for giving me a doc of stuff that wasn't long enough for an episode and letting me string it together into a show.

I miss you all so much, but most of all, I miss being on vacation. I can't wait to do it again soon!

And i agree "SNITCHES GET HITCHES" is the best joke of the show.

Also can i just say that so far the scantion is actually quite good?

I have learned via wikipedia that Sylvia Scott Gibson, the author of Latawnya, The Naughty Horse, Learns to Say "No" to Drugs, represented herself in a lawsuit against Amazon, Urban Dictionary, and Wikipedia.

The complaint is... very much what one would expect from the person who wrote Latawnya, The Naughty Horse, Learns to Say "No" to Drugs. (https://www.scribd.com/document/45079183/Gibson-v-Amazon-Complaint)

My curiosity about that book led me to this blog post from 2010 where she shows up in the comments (http://awfullibrarybooks.net/partying-horses/) and responds to the other commenters personally and it’s a wild ride:

Hello Lindsey:
You keep laughing. You really will laugh when
you see Latawnya The Naughty Horse Two. It
will be released soon.

Hello Margaret:
If my anti-drugs children book is is so terrible

their partners steal my book and they are selling it everywhere even in other countries. Tell me
the name of a brillant book you have written and
what library I can find your great book.

Hi Darby,
You keep on laughing and wait until you see

Hi Jamising:
Please tell me where I can find your book that was written so perfectly. You can read Latawnya
The Naughty Horse Two which will be released soon
and after you read it give it your best criticisms
thank you and keep laughing and making fun.

Hi Kat,
Will you please show me some of your professional illustrations. Let me know where I can find some of your perfect illustrations.

The website who is posting all of these
statements and prices about my book has stolen my book. They stole the book and made it look like they got it legal. I have never
received one dime from my book. The only people who has received money from my book is the thieves who stole it. amazon.com is the
number one thief, cafepress.com is the number two thief. This book is in the thieves hands.
I thanked God for leting me write my book , but my book is in the devils hands. All of you
keep laughing and making fun. One day everyone will see the real deal.
You can laugh and make fun all you want to but I know my book has helped a avriety of people even adults. People that I do not know have knocked on my door and thanked me for
writing Latawnya The Naughty Horse Learns To Say No TO Drugs. They told me they read
my book and now they do not use drugs anymore. I know I am not perfect like many of you good people are. I wrote my book trying to help children, but the people who stole my
book stole it to make money. I do not have anything to do with those high and terrible high prices the thieves have put on my book. ONE DAY I AM GOING TO WRITE THE TRUE STORY BEHIND LATAWNYA THE
NAUGHTY HORSE LEARNS TO SAY NO TO DRUG AND ABOUT THE THIEVES WHO STOLE IT AND CORRUPTED IT.

Respectfully,
Sylvia Scott Gibson
sylvia scott gibson

Thank you for your good, bad and silly comments. You think you are laughing now.
Wait until you see Latawnya The Naughty Horse
Two. Keep laughing and hold on tightly to something because when you see Laytawnya Two you are going to fall down laughing.

God there's a lot going on here. I don't think I get it all. Some things I think I do get:

- She claims that amazon is selling her book illegally in at least 11 countries. She seems to have come to this conclusion by searching amazon for "Latawnya The Naughty Horse canada" then " Latawnya The Naughty Horse japan" and since it came up in both searches, it must be sold in canada and japan, and those are separate copyright violations! I really like this because it means that amazon has also violated copyright by selling her book in atlantis, and on the moon.

- She says that 8 and also 9 of the characters in the book have her family's birth names, and she seems to think that the names themselves are something she has copyright over in addition to the book. I assume she's not aware what her publisher is doing, or maybe even that she has a publisher who goes and makes deals for the book to be sold.

- I'm not a copyright expert but I think she probably does have a case against urban dictionary, although she obviously doesn't understand that those mugs and t-shirts are autogenerated.

- The urban dictionary post indicates she's written erotic poetry and I think it's very important that I see that.

Amusingly, she states in the complaint, "The Defendants crossed out the Countries names and my birth name where they were selling my name and book after I sent the Defendants a Cease and Desist letter," meaning she doesn't understand how search results work.

- The urban dictionary post indicates she's written erotic poetry and I think it's very important that I see that.

I think the "erotic" part was someone goofing around; she's done love poetry, but I can't seem to find anything spicier than your generic Christian greeting card.  (Granted, I am not strongly committed to combing this woman's entire output for bad sex poetry.)

I did find her website (http://sylviagibson.blogspot.com/), which showcases all of her oeuvre, including samples.  She also has a youtube channel  (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4Okex2hjHHj5SNwqrxfddA/videos) where she does readings.

"PLU offers three undisputed facts.  First, the web pages which Plaintiff challenges were not real. (UF 1) (“They were created by three PLU students as a final team project inProfessor Robinson’s Spring 2007 Publishing Procedures Class (English 312).  Each teamwas to create a Web site for an imaginary publishing house featuring real books.  The books were not part of the reading for the class, but were just used to create the Web site project.”).  Second, “[n]one of these books were actually offered for sale on the Web site.”(UF 2) (“The fake ordering form does not actually do anything.”).  And finally, those responsible for the web pages not only never utilized them commercially but had actually forgotten about them until Plaintiff filed this action."

"Among other things, Amazon.com is not liable for selling “birthnames” or for allegedly entering “the Latawnya book into porn.”

"Plaintiff appears to have misidentified the opposition to Urban Dictionary’s motion as their own motion for summary judgment. To the extent Plaintiff intended to file such a motion, it is hereby DENIED."

This thing is amazing.  It reminds me of my recent note (where I had to document why the 54 year old woman who hadn't had a period in 14 years did not need to be evaluated for a tubal pregnancy), where you have to do your best to remain professional in your documentation because it's a legal document, but the things you have been compelled to write are so ridiculous you can't believe you're writing them.

Alright, finally got a chance to listen to all this and get caught up with all y'all that went to Seattle. My thoughts:

1. So, with the knowledge that all the characters in Latawnya, the Naughty Horse, Learns to Say "No" To Drugs were named after the writer's children and other family members, I have to say I feel sorry for the real-life Latawnya.

"Here sweety, mommy wrote a book about you where you're a dumbshit horse that does drugs because you're too stupid to not imitate whatever anyone does in front of you! Happy Brithday!"

2. I also really love the fact that Ms Gibson went out of her way to make all the characters horses, in spit of the obvious logistical problems that arise from showing realistic horses smoking joints, and then doesn't do anything with it narratively. Absolutely nothing about the story would change if it were "Latawnya, the Naughty Pelican, Learns to Say "No" To Drugs".

3. What's the deal with Christian puppet shows? I mean I understand the basic concept ("Kids like puppets, use them for Jesus") but I feel like the only context in which I've seen puppet shows over the past decade has either been in the context of evangelism or those ironic puppet shows where all the puppets swear and fuck. What is it about the medium of puppetry that seems to draw hardcore Christians like moths to a flame?

4. In the same vein as Latawnya's horse-ness having no bearing on the narrative of her story I also really like how absolutely none of the puppet shows featured in the roster had any reason to actually be puppet shows. It's like, you have a fair deal of freedom about the types of stories you can tell when you're not constrained by needing to have human actors play all the parts but all the writers of those things could come up with was "Uh, basically some normal kids doing one of those educational skits they show you in health class...". At least make it about robots loving Jesus or something...

5. I am glad to see the Sasquatch people have recovered from the species-wide loss of IQ that came from their interactions with Joan Ocean.

The kind of people who make (and consume) Christian stuff* tend to believe that anything that ISN'T specifically Christian is, at best, suspect; at worst, literally demonic and imperiling to one's soul.  Thus, they tend to be suuuuuper behind the times and ignorant to current trends in entertainment.  (I think it also helps that the kind of person who gravitates toward these movements tends to be the kind of person who doesn't like things changing and assumes that everything staying the same from one generation to the next is completely natural.)

Puppet shows were pretty popular in the 70s and 80s, so these guys are chasing that trend and not really positioned to understand that the trend is so dead that it's only accessible via irony.

*as opposed to just stuff that has Christian motifs or philosophy baked in but isn't specifically branded as such

I wouldn't say the trend is dead. There's a lot of small town conservative churches that are that cut off and still suspect of culture.
