The Iron Monkey. Just around the corner from WFMU's studios. A really nice place with great food and drink.

I have to say that this Gathering Of The FOT exceeded all my expectations. I had the time of my life and I met some really cool people including Jon From Maplewood and Lisa Jane Persky, both of whom I had great conversions with.
Hours later and I'm still on a high. I hope we don't have to wait 2 years for another. This was like the World's Fair of FOT!

I had a great time as well.
It was nice to meet many FOTs. I was shocked at how many came through. I bought nametags at 9 for people and thought that getting 75 nametags would be overkill and ran out very quickly.

A flickr group should be started for photos.

Who made those "OBOY" stickers? I cracked up laughing when I saw them.

I think those were the work of KickTheBobo.  As I said on FB, Harold, thanks for the credit but I don't deserve it - beyond showing up, I didn't do anything to help.  It was a great event, though.  And great photos!

Actually, Grote did propose an experimental theater workshop but he was voted down.

Was it KTB? I thought I heard a woman's name mentioned for the Fairey-style Oboy stickers and poster.

Oh and by the way, Jason, I neglected to come up and shake your hand last night and I regret it.  Coulda shoulda woulda.

I think I know I got mixed up. It was Jason who had posted all the original threads about The Gathering. I guess I thought he was you.
My bad.

I just sent you an almost-identical note on Twitter, Jon.  I really do hope we get to meet in person one of these days.  I got a visiting-artist gig in Montclair in the spring, so maybe there's a coffee in our future.

No worries, Harold, I just don't want to take credit for the original Jason's hard work.

I could be wrong about KTB and the OBOY sticker.  It happens sometimes, even to me!

This is a great photo essay, thank you so much for sharing! Still wish I could have been there, it looks like such a blast. By all rights KickTheBobo's OBOY poster could be named one of the coolest things ever, just wow. Makes me want to reclaim those 'posse' stickers and work on them even more! You sir are a FOTart hero.

Next year, see you there. By hook or by crook.

Had a damn fine time at the Gathering, and got to interface with many a classic FOT in 'meat-space'.

Jason came up with the sticker idea, and I believe his lady-friend executed it as a large-scale painting, which was AWESOME. great work on the companion Fairey sticker, RegJoe.

thanks for posting these pics Harold!

It took half the day, but I finally got 27 photos and 8 videos uploaded here -

FWIW, I don't know anything about taking pictures at night, which is why it looks like there are lightsaber fights happening in the background. Here are some favorites -

Jason came up with the sticker idea, and I believe his lady-friend executed it as a large-scale painting, which was AWESOME. great work on the companion Fairey sticker, RegJoe.

Bwah! I stand corrected. So sorry KtB. You did do the OBOY stickers. 

If you're not doing it already, FOT, avoid everything I write in this forum.

Safe and sound, though normal sleep and regular food will be a nice touch. And the PA Turnpike can cram it.

Seriously, I'm blocking like half of Hodgman's head in all of his shots. Thumbs down, tall people who stand in front. Although, in my own defense, my only option for moving at that point would've been to jump off the roof.

Yes, piece of cake, thanks for asking.  I haven't slept in about 40 hours so I think I will get some good repose this evening.

im still bummed i didnt get to go, but these photos make me feel a little better (and worse at the same time).  i missed a magical nite apparently.

however, it's great to see everyone's face.  even if ive had beef with you (theres one or two out there, im sure), it wouldve been nice to meet all the FOT, had some drinks, and made up.

Awesome, thanks for this.  The Dog album has been in pretty heavy rotation for me, but he really killed it live.

I was (still am) Brian, the kinda tall dude with glasses from fifty years ago, and a plaid shirt who spilled his beer on Frank from Weehawken and his lady friend whose name escapes me (sorry again...).  First best show outing, had more fun than I expected to, and was really surprised to see so many people show up on a Tuesday night.

Dan from Brooklyn called me up at 3 AM this morning (yelling at the top of his lungs) to make sure that I mention that the aforementioned ladyfriend is his lovely wife Jen (from Brooklyn) who also served as the FOTDD carting me back to my palatial Weehawken estate, Mike from Manhattan back to his Upper West Side Fortress of Solitude and Dan and Jen back to their mountain top resort in the outskirts of Brooklyn, Antarctica.

We may now resume talking about how awesome Tuesday night was and how we should have weekly listening parties like this.

Let me just say that this isn't the first time I've had to talk to Frank about this.  So I'm glad it's all straightened out.

Also, I think a listening party at Stately Frank Manor in Weehawken would be awesome.

Hey Gang,
    It's The Z-Man.  Thanks to everyone who posted photos with me and/or Wally (who's last name, I remind you, is spelled "Wackiman", though I know "Wackerman" is a common mistake) on the board!  Additionally, if anyone has any more, wherever they may be, if you could send me a message with a link, or however is best for you, I'd really appreciate it.  My camera was acting up, so I only really got one shot of me with Officer Tom, all night.  This was Wally's very first public appearance, and outside of my immediate family, my girlfriend, and a select few, those at the Gathering were the first to see him in action.  I really want as much photo/video goodness from the evening as is available.  I'm on MySpace and Facebook, if pics or video are available there.  Thanks, again, and to everyone just for coming out and making it worth getting barely any sleep, to have to work at 6:00 AM, Wednesday morning.  I hope these happen, more often, and thus to see you again, soon enough.  Bye!
