Slaughterstock now has an even page on Facebook (WARNING: you must login to see it). I've got more confirmed attendees that way in just a few hours than on my own website. Wow. Anyway, here's a breakdown of the main topics (that I can think of):
-- [DATE] --
The weekend of June 26th - 28th. Friday the 26th is an unofficial start date, starting whenever I get off work and generally consisting of cleaning and cutting stuff up. There will be chainsaws and various other sharp instruments, along with trucks and stuff for moving logs and whatever else needs to be done for preparation. As usual, I will provide beer & food for anybody that shows up. It's a good time!
-- [RULES] --
I reserve the right to kick out anybody without any reason whatsoever. I reserve the right to do whatever I want whenever I want for whatever reason I want. If you're a designated driver, let me know and I'll try to provide some pop or whatever--provided I'm not already intoxicated.
I will not be allowing people into my house by default, though I may make exceptions on an as-needed basis. If you gotta go to the bathroom, find a tree or something and bring TP... I might rent a port-o-potty if there's enough in attendance, but it hasn't really been a problem in the past... but there isn't really a hard-and-fast rule about it, so talk to me first.
Don't make a mess. I'll have a garbage receptacle nearby, and the fire works for most things, but glass and aluminum don't burn and are a pain to cleanup. We're all there to have a good time, so don't do stuff that will make it unpleasant for me or anyone else afterward.
-- [LOCATION] --
The snow has melted and the flood waters have receded. The farm is still here. That means it will be at the same location it's always been at, which is the Falconer Farm [TinyURL.com -> Google Maps].
-- [MUSIC] --
BANDS: I haven't invited any. I don't forsee myself inviting any to play. If you're in a band and you want to play, bring your own stuff (power shouldn't be a problem, but you should bring a generator if you have one, 'cuz that's a lot of extension cables). There won't be a stage unless someone brings one. Loud stuff stops at 10pm so neighbors can sleep. I gots no monies, so any band that is thinking of or actually decides to play is doing so for free--and if you invite crazy, disruptive, or otherwise unsavory folk, I reserve the right to kick 'em to the curb (if we had one).
MUSIC: I've got plenty on my 1TB external drive, so I'll probably just plug a stereo into my laptop and let Amarok amaze everyone with it's totally awesome randomization capabilities (hrmm... I wonder how long it will take to build a database of 45,000 songs).
-- [BURNINATION] --
There will be a bonfire as usual, weather permitting. In the event that weather isn't permitting... well, I don't know. The soon-to-be-traditional Failure Burning (burning something that's failed you or something that symbolizes failure) is a go, weather permitting again.
