¨¨¨°º the adventures of choklit chanteuse º°¨¨¨



Stache and Skyeboy are working on a new project - they've formed a small bike-modification collective called Krank-Boom-Clank, and they're building a "kinetic conveyance of whimsy" called the Hennepin Crawler ~ a four-seater pedal-powered vehicle that they can ride around the Playa in. They've been busily scavenging and welding away, writing grants and other such exciting things.

But I really wanted to write about it as an excuse to post this brilliant picture: Krank-Boom-Clank, In a Field.

Aren't they unbearably dashing? After Burning Man, they're helping put together an event called The Great West End & Railroad Square Handcar Regatta & Exposition of Mechanical & Artistic Wonders. Do visit their web site, it's written in the most delightfully florid manner. I must confess to a little crush on the site's proprietor, Dr. Erasmus P. Kitty.

It's shaping up to be an amazing steampunk-esque extravaganza, with local favorites the Spindles and my beloved Amber Lee playing music. Stache even got an inquiry about event participation from the esteemed Flaming Lotus Girls... could be some fire art in the works?

More details as the event gets closer. Gracious me, I had better start dreaming up a costume now...

I wandered over here after seeing your posting on Tribe about Baby Seal Club (you know me there as Herodias in Space). Hope the gig went well!

I love the phrase "responsible hedonist." I plan on stealing that.
