Well, the end of the world came and went with nothing but brutal hangovers and spotty memories of twisted decadence to mark the “Ooops never mind Apocalypse.” Neither Harold Camping or our own management foresaw the martyrdom of Macho Man Randy Savage or his heavenly victory in stopping the destruction and judgement of us all.
We may not be dead, but we aren’t bitter about it here at Swellco & Swellco. We managed to achieve something quite remarkable. We managed to organize and co-ordinate 5 S&S events on the same night, and from the photos that are trickling in, they all looked pretty fierce.
More astonishing was that a 6th unofficial party in AZ occurred without us even being involved.
After the cataclysmic bio-hazard issues at the final Hard Times party, a continuous debate raged on whether or not an official blood, feces & sodomy ban needed to be in place. Ironically, no reports of this being an issue have come back.
Some interesting high points that have been reported to us.
-The Buenos Aires WRATH was the largest in attendance with 350 people toasting to the end of us all. However only 26 dressed in Fury costumes.
-It ends up that the Auckland New Zealand party was NOT officially sponsored by Hell’s Pizza who was unaware of the bikini bottom pizza party pre-WRATH party, party. the 40 guests were all evicted from the premises after they decided to change the bikini bottom pizza party theme into a NO bottom pizza party.
-In Las Vegas a guest of the End Times Burlesque Extravaganza accidentally set the bathroom on fire at the Double Down Saloon. This however really isn’t that note worthy in that someone sets SOMETHING on fire there every night.
-At the Bergen Norway Bond Fire it is reported, but not confirmed that a real goat was sacrificed. We are waiting for photo confirmation. Swellco & Swellco would like to state that we do not engage in or endorse cruelty to animals and if any such act did occur, it was not in any official capacity and S&S management was unaware of any plans for this to happen.
-In Philadelphia management & employee assets gathered in our armed palatial compound to contemplate the end. Sadly everyone became so inebriated that we actually forgot to hold the Hula Hoop Contest. One of the scarier moments occurred when hosts Louise LaTease and Needles Jones made out on our stage. The world WAS coming to an end after all…
Sadly, the end of ending the world brings happy and sad announcements. The decision to launch our Swellco & Swellco Approved Party Listing & Newsletter was put on hold when we received the news about the Rapture. Obviously, now that service will go forward. However, as we begin to focus on finding the most original and bizarre live events in our cities, we will be suspending our locally sponsored parties indefinitely. Philadelphia, you’ve been characteristically awesome and inhospitable as only Philly can be.
More Photos Sets of various WRATH parties will be posted as they all come in.
