Santa Con is Coming to Town!

December 12, 2008

Santa Cons? Need you ask after the previous post? Of course it’s genesis and genious comes from the Cacophony Society who were there to instigate and participate in the early years of Burning Man. You gotta wear a suit! Here’s how to make one.

Watch some of the antics of LA’s Midnight Ridazz Santa Con Dec. 6, 2008 then click here to find a Santa Con near you! I’ll be at the Santa Barbara Santa Con Saturday night, imbibing Santini’s and other Santarchy delights I am sure! We will even have snow on the hills as a backdrop! According to a climatologist at Caltech, we’re expecting the snowstorm of the decade this weekend!

To consider how antics such as these fit into a global picture of change, subversion of the dominant paradigm and more, buy yourself a copy of Nowtopia: How Pirate Programmers, Outlaw Bicyclists, and Vacant Lot Gardeners Are Inventing the Future Today by Chris Carlsson (AK Press 2008).  Visit Nowtopia on the web at www.nowtopia.org! Thanks to David the Vinomadic for turning me onto this very cool, insightful and cutting edge book!

For stories, pics and other details about Santa Cons here, there, and everywhere, check this site out. There’s even a collection of Santa Con carols including my favorite, Georgie Baby. If you need to remember the tune, or just want to see a wonderful version with Eartha Kitt, it’s here.

So enjoy Gerogie Baby and know that soon we will return to our regularly scheduled broadcast of posts completing our series about the State of the Blogosphere…
