Justin, we've been invaded by the department of tourism again. :)

JustinO'Shea said...

CoopstaBabes. . I posted this just for you!!!
Isn't it hideous!!! Doesn't look very attractive. . .. like. .as if the planners were bored to death, not really interested but "had to come up with something". . ..sheeeesssshhhhh.
Who wants to go to that!!!?

Coop said...

A festival dressed up as a star trek convention. Ehyeah... Who's the audience? the target demographic?
Heads will roll in the tourism dept. ;-)

J said...

Another myth exploded: Gays have inate creative talents and artistic ability.

GreginAdelaide said...

I see that horrible combination as a good sign. Makes me happy.

Obviously gay has lost it's pull. They think the attraction of a gay event is old hat so they dress it up in even more sad and old conspiracy/trekky/alien clothes, how sad.
A sign of the times?
Everyone is sick and tired of gay being talked about and paraded as a "shocking" attraction?

So many of my straight friends and aquaintances are "so over" the "gay thing" and just with the bloody government would recognise gay marriages to "get it out of the way so we don't have to hear about it endlessly"

It seems "we" are becoming so boring/passe that straights who really don't care one way or another are coming on side just to get closure?

Recently, both the South Australian and Tasmanian state Premiers (head of state goverments) have come out in support of gay marriage and the support is still growing, gathering pace?

Yep, that P-town advertising is, methinks, a good sign that "we" are wearing them down.

GreginAdelaide said...

Oh crap.

I just clicked on the "song" ..... makes me wanna puke.

" Special Annoucement: France Joli will be there for a meet & greet and to sign & sell her new CD with the song of the summer Hallelujah."

How could anyone wreck such a classic!

Yes, that promotion is sad, very sad indeed.

JustinO'Shea said...

J. . .your comment is the funniest thing I've read today! THANKS for a good laugh. . . ho ho ho

Gary Kelly said...

I'm embarrassed to say that when I scrolled down the ad for the festival and parade, I thought you guys would think it was cool. Hehe. WRONG!

I agree with Greg about the "gay thing" becoming passe and boring. I also agree with J about creativity being exclusively a gay thing. Wot rot!

Remember the days of the Black and White Minstrels, when singers and dancers thought it was cool to paint their faces black?

Yeah, say no more.

Coop said...

Greg, when I first came out I thought the earth would start spinning in the other direction. Did it? nope. I wasn't expected to be different nor did I want to.

That said... ;-)
Has anyone read the "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series? That would make a great festival.

JustinO'Shea said...

I am glad to read your comments. . Looks like the Carnival is a thing of the past. . .finally!

GreginAdelaide said...

Ha Coop!
Hitchiker's is a classic, something that is well known here in Oz.
Probably cos we also have close connections to Brit humour like you do in your part of the US of A?

I've been to two fancy dress parties that had that as a theme...it was rather good, funnily enough.

Not sure that Zaphod Beeblebrox would even take a second look at anyone in P-Town during the festival, he'd think it normal!
