Day 729 of 365 More.

Another year, another Jammy Jam. And a good time was had by all.

So I was actually kinda worried that Jammy Jam would be a failure this year. I had to move my planned date like twice. I had several friends who couldn’t make it. I had one of the bands cancel with only 24 hours notice. I was too busy to plan it as properly as I normally like.

On the other hand, I had a stripper pole.

It actually went really well. After one band cancelled Friday afternoon, I was able to find a replacement at 2:30am on Saturday. 16.5 hours before the party started. And they were even good. Woohoo! People enjoyed it. Everyone had fun. Prizes were won. Drunkeness was had.

And the stripper pole was a huge hit. I don’t know why I didn’t get one of these ages ago. Everyone needs a stripper pole in their house.

And in closing. I just want to say big ups to Bernie Mac!

    I don’t think Steph is so much embarrassed as "there he goes again…"

    Yowza! That’s not an easy move to pull off!!

  6. August 10, 2008 at 7:39 pm

    To Steph: sigh…

    To Mav: Get. Down. From. There.

    Glad y’all had fun!

    You know I have this dance group? Dance Like You Don’t Know How! There’s actually a flickr group for stipper poles too. It’s kinda slutty.

    i really need my own place so I can get my pole!

    also it looks like your ceiling is way too low for the fun stuff. Sad.

    @olga_sgr!: hey! what’s so funny?!?! 🙂

    @Mikey aka DaSkinnyBlackMan: oh you know you’re just jealous!

    @365bunnies: heh, what? 🙂

    @marmal8: nah, she was embarassed I’m pretty sure. But she should be used to it by now.

    @lrayholly: heh, that’s what its there for!

    @spresogna: glad you had fun, babe!

    @sassyshannon999: yeah, where were you anyway? I was sad you didn’t make it!

    @QueenOfDallas: you know he’s trying to figure out how to!

    @SaylaMarz: I believe the ceiling is just over 8 feet. It just looks lower in the shot. Not the highest I’ve ever seen, but seeing as how I don’t actually know what I’m doing, it’s fine. The real problem is that I don’t have the pole mounted where there’s enough space to really swing around without hitting other stuff (or people in a party situation). But yeah, once you get your own place I’ll be happy to pass on ordering information.

    and sure I’ll add to your group. 🙂

  14. August 11, 2008 at 5:22 am

    HAH HAH HAH! Brilliant. I am glad to see that pole is, um, getting some good use. *snorts*

  17. August 12, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    Sorry. We didn’t have a sitter for Parker. And Doug had to work on Sunday at 5:45, so I would’ve had to be home by then and sober enough to make it home……..probably wouldn’t have happened.

  18. August 12, 2008 at 9:48 pm

    @assbach: eh… it was all in good fun.

    @.Mercury: hey! what’s so funny?!?!

    @adayinthelife: well, there are better uses from other people than me, but it was fun.

    @sassyshannon999: oh, one of these days you’ll make it. At least you made it to dinner.

  19. August 13, 2008 at 3:46 pm

    I <3 you. I don’t know what else to say. Except that I wish I could have been at Jammy Jam, 🙁

  20. August 13, 2008 at 3:49 pm

    @like_shipwrecks: well, you’ll definitely have to come next year then.

  21. August 13, 2008 at 6:44 pm

    I love it that they come in 4 colors and stainless steel…how did you decide?? This is a cool-ass shot!

  26. August 18, 2008 at 11:05 am

    @twnklmoon: oh. I just wanted plain silver, so that’s what I got.

  27. October 25, 2008 at 12:24 am

    Looks sturdy lol. I was wondering if you had a pole in your studio or what.

    [discovered in the photophlow main room] (?)

  28. November 17, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    @Icefreez: nope. I mount it in my dining room, actually. And yeah, it’s a professional grade pole. It can hold like 300 lbs.
