Just Fur Fun

Bojon Fur Party

shaka to brother alcorn for throwing an old school house party where everybody crowds into the kitchen, talks a bunch of smack, and tears one off. that's really how it used to be. every weekend. back in the day. nice to get there again.

so really, when was the last time we did flight plans around the horn? that might date back to digby after the Mad Tea Party. well... ok, not quite that extreme. but definitely around the horn. twice.

random "fur" theme was a nice twist and just enough to give the gig a purpose. without giving it too much of a purpose. if you know what i mean.

good times...

check out photo gallery from the weekend.

and here are a few video clips captured along the way:
