A huge number of people have been writing me with questions about this party we’re having at the house tonight so I thought I’d post something on my website that I can link people to, so I don’t have to keep answering the same questions over and over.
- Is there a party tonight
Yes, me and Davey are having a party in/around our Upper South Providence apartment
- What kind of party is it
- What is the occasion for the party
I’m almost done with a painting, Davey bought us a chess board, my mirror fell off of my wall the other night smashing while I was asleep
- Have I cleaned up the smashed mirror yet
I started to
- What time is the party
I will not be leaving the house for the rest of the day
- What will there be at the party
I bought four pounds of mussels at eastside marketplace that I’m probably gonna start soaking around 9:30pm.
- What should I bring to the party
Drinks unfortunately cannot be provided. Outfits are not provided.
- What will the tone of this party be
It will probably differ on an individual basis based on how each person attending’s day/week/month/year/life in Providence is going, but the tone I’m shooting for for myself is akin to the tone of looking at yourself in a smashed mirror and saying, “sub-zero wins. flawless victory. friendship”
- Are there any further considerations to take into account
Not speaking the names of social media or online services or the names of proprietary software programs out loud at the party is strongly preferred but not required. “No pop-up ads”
- Is anything required
- Is anything desired
- Who is invited
Metaphysically speaking, basically everyone who lives or is comfortable in the larger house is invited to our wing of that house tonight
