October 4th, 1992, was a lucky day for us.
The Have Fun Club, of which we were proud members, had organized a “Festival of Fools” for this day. But in truth that organization consisted of little more than the printing of a flyer and a trip to Big Lots for supplies. We had no idea if anyone would show up for the event. Probably not.
Luck was on our side, however. By a fortuitous coincidence, the three-day Anarchist Picnic was reaching its climax on that same day. A contingent of freaks arrived from that event and turned our parade into a raging success.
It was also lucky in another way. Local videographer Eric White got wind of the event and turned up with camera in hand. I cut his footage together with the stuff I shot, the first of numerous collaborations and the beginning of a friendship that persists to this day.
Eric also met Rachel Whang at the parade, the beginning of a relationship that was documented sixty-seven episodes later in ROX #78.
What a great day this was. The anarchists had been camping out in my back yard up on the hill (talk about a culture clash) and we headed downtown for the parade. We didnt know what to expect. We ran into Killian (the long-haired one holding a skateboard) and Isa once we got downtown. I remember the folks in cars looking at us very blankly confused. One even asked me what the protest was about? I told him we were marching against boredom!
The sad thing is this was the only one....
