Listened to a 'Florida Man' piece on NPR this morning.    Various anecdotes were mentioned including the dude who threw the alligator through the fast-food drive-thru window.  (Why!?!!)

Was just thinking that the federal broadcaster CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) would never dare cover such a topic with its national unity mandate.   The only folks on CBC allowed to really take the mickey out of quebecois are.....  quebecois comedians and they do exactly that on occasion.  Thankfully.   

None of this stops lots and lots of regular folks from making jokes about Newfies and Capers.     I like to make devastating jokes about.... English Canadians because....  I am English Canadian!    
 

I used to live in Florida, it is no joke.

Half the fun of living here is to see what ridiculous shit our fellow Floridians pull next.

Florida is the worst state in the nation in every way, new rankings say

Florida ranks dead last when it comes to rating the best states in the nation. Michigan ranks No. 1, the very best state in the union.

Let that sink in for awhile. Michigan, the state that gave us the Motor City Madman, Ted Nugent and Kid Rock (the poor man’s Ted Nugent), is 49 states better than Florida.

Thrillist’s Definitive and Final Ranking of All 50 States list ranked the states “based on everything.” Specifically, the states’ contributions to America, like inventions, food and drink, “somewhat productive famous people,” and unique physical beauty, among other things.

'Florida Man' Is a Love Letter to Our Weirdest and Best State


Last year, the guerrilla filmmaker traversed Interstate 4 and stopped in places like Cocoa Beach, Clearwater, Inverness, and Ocala with a four-person crew. With no agenda in mind, he simply asked people on the street if they had any words of wisdom. Rather than be put off, he found, Florida men just rolled with the idea of having a camera crew in their faces for a few minutes. It didn't even phase them.

Quick drop in to follow-up on all the spam about the Hotel Carolina music fest (which took place neither in a hotel named Carolina nor a hotel in Carolina).  It was the first time the organizers tried something quite like this so there were some definite ups and downs.  The biggest positive was that the music and artists couldn't have been more mellow and fun and genuine and all the things you hope for from a laid back fest like this.  Also on the positive side - our hotel room looked like this:

postcard inn

These are NOT promotional photos, they are photos I took myself of the room.  Yes it was incredibly groovy.  And the rest of the hotel, common areas, and grounds were just as surftastic.  The stage was set-up in the pool area so you could swim all day and listen to music, then break for dinner, and come back at night to relax on the pool lounge chairs, look at the stars, and listen to more music.  The setting and substance couldn't have been better.  The big downer was that NO ONE WAS THERE.  I guess the other events this group has put on have always sold out from word of mouth.  So almost no effort was put into marketing.  It made for a fabulously intimate setting but I couldn't help but feel a little bad for the performers.
 
Last I checked there were plans to bring the Hotel Carolina experience to other locations around the country.  If one comes your way, take a chance and go!

 
looks like a cool place

will check out next time in that area

glad you had fun {#Biggrin}

I got an email yesterday saying tickets were going down to $34.99 for the ENTIRE weekend but I just checked and the website doesn't reflect that change yet.
