The Parlour PDX - Nefarious Discordian (Not-So-Secret)Lair
« on: November 24, 2009, 07:32:48 am »
So some spags I know quite well through the PDXOcculture group have started an all-ages music venue/hang-out spot/weirdness magnet call THE PARLOUR, right next door to the Chaos Cafe:




THE WORKER-OWNED COOPERATIVE VENUE WITH A SWEET 'STACHE

Live music, theater, vegetarian/vegan fare, and tasty microbrews.
Plus art, clothing, books, zines, and much more.

Fri - Sat: 7:00 pm - 12:00 am · Sun: 4:00 pm - 12:00 am
2628 SE Powell Blvd · Portland, OR 97202

And have already gotten a good review in the Willamette Weekly: http://wweek.com/editorial/3602/13353/

The point being, 2 of the main organizers (Phiz, and Jon Fenderson) are good friends, very much self-identifying Discordians, and know I hang out online with you crazy spags.

THEY WANT PROPAGANDA!

For the walls, to hand out, and to be a general point of access to modern Discordian thought.

At the moment, I'm seriously strapped for funds, or I'd just be raiding all of the other threads here and printing shit out. (They already have a ton of RAW and related book on sale via the R6XX.com folks.)

Anyone else have any ideas?

I think I can do this. Do you have anything in particular you need? Hit me with a snail mail address.

I really need to design some sort of Discordian hot spot in Providence. Steeple Street is getting there though...I just can't let the owners know my cunning plans.

Dude, that's about a 10 minute walk from my apartment. Once I've gotten a regular schedule I'll let you know what my days off are and I'd be happy to offer any help I can, even if it's just doing some grunt work.

Awesome! I'll be sure to keep this thread updated on the current happenings. Oh, and their business card kicks ass:



I'll think on some specific pieces I'd like to see in there and PM you my addy Cram (probably later tonight, I've got studying to do @ school).

btw - you guys should be a distributor for Six Way Moustaches. They're like $.30 a piece if you buy 'em by the box.

I would gladly pay $5 for a coffee if it came with a stylish moustache!

I love how the moustache has become the jesus fish of Discordianism. I think I'm going to put one on my front door, to identify myself to passing Discordians.

I need to find where I can get a box of those fuckers.  The big, obnoxious ones that Cram wears.

This is a great idea. I will mention this to the Parlour spags.

THIS.

For this I would fly 3000 miles for a cup of coffee.

So looking around, I can find them for $0.46/each here if I order more than 27 @ a time: http://www.houseofchuckles.com/moustaches-beards.htm (#PC-0040 )

Most websites won't sell them in bulk, if you know of anywhere else I can get these at a good deal in bulk, let me know.

that's the ticket! Considering these things usually retail for $4-5, 50c apiece is a great deal.

then you need to get some pics taken of the cafe full of people wearing fake moustaches. That'll bring in the crazies from far and wide.
