PEX. Philadelphia Experiment Summer Festival.

Hell, if it's an apocalypse, I'm killing myself right now she said. I believed her.

Maybe it was the mushrooms or that it was the fourth of july but it seemed possible. It must have been the apocalypse. Or a firecracker gone awry.

But it wasn't. It was magic. I mean, isn't every comet like god's small magic trick. All oohs and ahhhs? When he was 5 years old he'd seen a comet, tail fizzing out and sky all lit up. Every shooting star since was a letdown.

Here we are, three misfits in glitter and neon. In the middle of the woods. Running towards a pool and away from the fire spinners and this beauty comes out and we catch it.

I felt like the karate kid catching the goddamn fly with the chopsticks on the first try. Beginners luck. If you only live once, it's a good thing to have.

Fourth of July outfits and eyes that aren't properly focused.
Sometimes, you and the DJ (Nigel Richards) feel like dance partners that don't touch.

You know you are beautiful when your face matches the dawn.
There are some pictures that have no explanation.
*See above.
The person who blew bubbles on the dance floor while the sun was rising deserves to have some sort of authority in this country.

This little girl is a far more serious music junkie than you can ever aspire to be.

If I don't hold onto it I might lose it.
If this isn't wierdo love, I don't know what is.

If this isn't wierdo love, I don't know what is.

Friday. Lowbrow Society for the Arts presents: MASHUP!

The Lowbrow Society for the Arts presents:


A super-fun multimedia art-party celebrating everything remixed, remade, repurposed, collaborated, and collaged.

Come early for the genre-bending art show, featuring works by: DAZE — a graffiti legend famous for painting subways in the cult film "Wildstyle",  Sinead McCarthy — a porn blogger and naughty photographer, Nate "Igor" Smith — the guy who captures your drunken moments on DrivenByBoredom.com, Gwynn Galitzer —  who uses My Little Pony as social commentary, Lenora Jayne, Evan Rosen, Carey Baldwin, Najva Sol, Anoush Dekhordi, Helen Buyniski, and Ari Goldstein. Be prepared for neon-glitter apocalypses, subverted woodblock prints, handcrafted curiousities, and Photoshop wizardry.

In typical Lowbrow Society fashion, we believe that all good art is a reason to party. Rock out to live music by Rosetta Stoned - an indie hip-hop outfit that recently opened for Peaches, Spiral Beach- "electro art fusion pop/trash/dance punk",  and Cloud — a J-dilla-esque MPC beatmaker.

Late night Mashup/Electro/Remix/Dirty Dub DJing by: DJ Tommy D, Action Alex, and 12 Inch Endowment. Be prepared for tag-team turntablism and dancing your pants off.

SUPER CHEAP DRINKS. Performance by Inbred Hybrid Collective. Interactive exquisite corpse drawings. Short film by Irina Sarnetskaya. Face/body painting. Puppetry performance. Superhero armor fashion show by Dr. Adventure. 8-bit music.

Feel free to come dressed in your most remixed and ridiculous finery.
Strip naked all the expectations around "art" and get dirty with the unconventional.

Bands/performances: 10:30-1ish
DJ's: 1ish- late-ish

$5 suggested donation before 11:30

Carey: My adorable partner-in-crime looking dashing as she casually leans back and drapes her calf over a bycicle *cough*
Ray's been hopping trains all over the country for ages. 
Carey gave her a bowl cut. I thought she was cute.
Ruby Ruby Rose was not only a great band, but the lead singer also fucked a random volunteer from the crowd with a strap-on.
Magpie draws sweet comics for earthfirst and is the glitteriest, gothest, sweetest anarchist I've ever met.
Tom writes beautiful things and was the first person to officially hit on both me AND carey.
This rope drew blood.
Willow is stunning. They shaved their hair just that day and went from 70's gayboy to 2009 babe. Willow was the one who suggested smoking pot out of a day lily.
This is a ghost. I bet you can't guess who.
Jesus was tied up and kept yelling for a blowjob and a cocktail.
Sully and Israel were two of the first people I met. Sully has hawk feathers on his glasses, and scary amounts of energy. Israel likes to talk about sex work and adventure.
This girl wore rad threads and could do flips. Aren't there rules about being too awesome? There should be.
Think 70's softcore gay porn. Love the sleaze.
Devin was wearing a 25 cent wedding dress the night I met him. About 50 fags and Fag-ettes went roller skating at a nearby rink for his birthday and possibly gave the locals quite a shock.
Little Bunny Kai Kai just left the army in May and re-outed himself. He used to be married to a woman. Now he's wondering around the back of freight trains somewhere. His memory is amazing, he can remember every word to any song he's heard more than three times.
Bea and Piper giving a safe sex fisting demo. Piper was literally one of the most jovial people I've ever met, and has a rack that dreams are made of.
Melissa looks like a girl from another era about to hit the town. We gardened together and not only is she an absolute doll, she isn't afraid to wear a neon mumu. 
The end. (Israel's end to be exact. It was his greatest Ass-et.)
