bunker/combichrist halloween party

it seems like most everyone had a good time; i was exhausted and achy, spent a lot of time sitting/sprawling in corners; i think i managed to sort-of dance to two or three songs (the japanese demon lady costume was a hit - although i tore one of the white out contacts trying to put them in, so i was missing that part)

combichrist themselves sounded good, especially given bunker's lack of true sound system for a band; i didn't see very much of their set though (see above)

the decor and theme rooms worked well, both the club staff & managers and b who designed the decor were happy with the results - glad i was able to take care of the fog cannon and the sewing that was needed to make it happen

the fog cannon itself shorted out somewhere between the switch and the second pump, but still worked well and looks awesome enough that people are already asking about renting it (i will rewire it with a better switch before the next appearance so it makes more fog; we also need to add a fan behind it blowing out toward the crowd so the fog travels further and a better power strip - the little one blew when pump two shorted, and had no removable fuse which made power an issue until we moved some things around)

there were a few really good costumes, but overall, meh - and too many tourists who bought the cheap goth/sexy costumes in a bag or people who dressed like it was any other club night - not even simple things like zombie makeup or a mask; and once again the tourists were asshats - i swear we need to start putting big warnings on the flyers and event sites that grabbing someone's ass or pushing them or harassing them is not acceptable behavior even when people wear revealing clothes (and last night some of the female tourists were as bad as the men)

i am still sick, but no worse than yesterday or the day before, so sleeping/napping pretty much all day (yes, that's with the adderall) was the right thing to do as it allowed me to get out for a few hours
