Hey Folks —
For most of you this doesn’t apply. But, if you plan on being in Philly this weekend for the Roots concert and/or just to hang out with the various writers and readers of Pajiba that are descending on the city of Brotherly Love for a weekend of nerd depravity (read: get shitfaced and poke fun at each others’ grammatical mistakes on Facebook updates) and you don’t yet know the weekend itinerary, get in contact with Stacey. She’ll send you the full details. I also hope to be updating our whereabouts over on Twitter throughout the weekend, as long as my mental faculties cooperate. Next week, we’ll do our best not to be completely obnoxious about Bacon East, as we often were with Bacon SXSW. And if you happen to be at The Roots concert, look for us. Just play a game of “Which one of these doesn’t look like the other,” and you can probably find us by simple deduction. Or, the Murdertank T-Shirts. Whichever.
Also, I know we retired Eloquent Eloquence a couple of months ago to honor AlabamaPink, but I’ve decided to bring it back. I don’t have a great reason for it except this: I miss it. It brought out the worst of some of you, and there’s a lot of entertainment value in your worst.
This go around, however, will be a kindler gentler EE. Longtime Eloquent Figgy will be taking over EE duties from Prisco, who was just short of going on a murdering rampage by the end. Also, T-shirts will not be given out to the EE winners this time. We’ll be giving out DVDs of our choosing. Please be kind to Figgy as she figures her way around the mine field. Please give her at least three weeks to develop some emotional callouses before you start blaming her for the downfall of the Pajiba. For now, you can continue to blame Prisco or myself.
The return edition of EE will debut tomorrow. Look out for it.
