AbsolutelyReliableConeyCon I

As previously mentioned, next month -- a mere six weeks away -- is AbsolutelyReliableConeyCon I. We went all out and hired the best web designers in the business to create our awesome event flyer. They even included a Midi file of the most rockingest song ever (Photograph), but it had the unfortunate feature of crashing browsers, so it's been replaced by the second most rockingest song ever. Rock on.

So, go check out the flyer, put links to it all over the web -- especially places that expressly say not to advertise other events, then bitch about the rule being enforced -- and drop a line if you think you can make it. Note that we're offering, um, nothing for this, besides probably a group discount if you get there at the same time and find the group. ARN&R t-shirts will be available for purchase if we remember to bring them, and there may well be a celebrity surprise.

If you consider that wino who hangs out at Nathan's to be a celebrity.
Area Coaster Enthusiast "Totally Screwed" By Daylight Savings Time

According to area coaster enthusiast Joel McMasters, 35, Daylight Savings Time is a "bitch."

McMasters reached this conclusion shortly after discovering that his VCR had failed today to tape the long-awaited Travel Channel special Most Extreme Ride Op Shenanigans. The reason for the non-taping was because McMasters had set the device to record the show without realizing that clocks would all need to be moved forward one hour early this morning.

"That Daylight Savings Time crap totally screwed me!" the enthusiast lamented. "I wanted to have that show in my library, and now I've got some Travel Channel crap about Italy instead. My life is ruined."

Legal experts refused to speculate to ARN&R on whether McMasters has valid grounds to sue Daylight Savings Time or not.
