Houston Whatever Fest is pretty damn awesome. Well, half of it is pretty damn awesome, I only went on Saturday. I can’t go both days, I’m too old and too tired for that. The weather gripped Houston in its icy grasp that weekend and I didn’t have the proper clothes prepared to shield myself from it.
So Sunday was probably just as awesome, I just can’t vouch for it because I was in a warm place having Friendsgiving. Also, I didn’t get to see the comedy portion of it, I was there mostly for the music.
Here are five things I really liked about Houston Whatever Fest:
Free rum. There was free tequila too, but tequila doesn’t agree with me.
People complimenting my awesome trenchcoat. It makes me look like a cross between Inspector Clouseau and Inspector Gadget. Then again, the latter is inspired by the former, so I’m not sure if that counts.
Watching the faces of the audience contort in horror while we, the Space City Nerd crew, read erotic Mario fanfiction.
Seeing the hipsters run away in horror as GWAR sprayed them with blood, pee and puss. It doesn’t look like they’ve seen a GWAR show before.
Ghostland Observatory’s amazing lightshow.
Five things I didn’t like about Houston Whatever Fest:
The two girls that cut in front of us to get to the bar. Yes, we called you out on it. Yes, we saw you glare at us. It doesn’t mean you two aren’t in the wrong. Enjoy your crappy beer.
It was cold.
GWAR blood still got on my Inspector Clouseau jacket despite me being really far back.
The dudes loudly repeating the first part of DMX’s Ruff Ryders Anthem over and over again during Ghostland Observatory.
UH lost to UCONN during HWF. Dammit.
I took some pictures though!
