Video: Monster Camp – a documentary about LARPing

Without LARP, we would not understand the edges of our own society. (Not sure what that means exactly, but I wanted to say something positive.) This movie is from ’07, but as you may know, LARPing is timeless.

A much-overdue quote from Fergie re: peeing onstage

Though Fergie (aka The Dutchess) is one of the main reasons for the founding of this blog, we have been lax in our Fergi-centric coverage of late.

To remedy this error oversight, I offer up this outstanding quote of Fergie (commenting on the time she peed her pants on stage) from a Blender interview (by way of this month’s Bust):

“You haven’t had to go straight on stage after being late to a show, then jumped up and down while singing ‘Let’s Get Retarded,’ OK, motherfucker? I was late, so I didn’t go to the restroom before I went onstage. It was horrible, but whatever. It happened.”
