The upcoming weekend of June 17-19 has special significance for us here at TopatoCo. In 2005, it was the weekend that we finally managed to clear all the rats out of the warehouse that we would eventually turn into our flaying-room. In 2007, it was during that very three-day span that we were locked up, to a man, on drunk and disorderly charges brought by a corrupt sheriff that we later dunked in a vat of pig-lard on live TV, and thus saved the skate park. In 2008, June 17-19 marked a contest that we held to see who could stay awake the longest without resorting to toothpicks in the eye like Odysseus (the winner, of course, was Joanna). And in 2010, that just happened to be the weekend of the Culling.
Now, we’re going to celebrate this IMPORTANT MILESTONE IN TOPATOCO HISTORY by declaring it Calgary Day(s), and coming to Calgary, Alberta for the Calgary Comics & Entertainment Expo! Only they won’t let us into Calgary after we declared, back at TCAF, that Toronto was “the only Canadian city.” So we are going to send our artists in our stead, since they’re the folks you want to see anyway.
Who will be there? How about:
HARK! A KATE BEATON
A SOFTER JOEY AND EMILY
and ETHAN AXE COP I don’t really have a good nickname for him.
Everyone will be at BOOTH 1214 and also IN YOUR HEARTS. Click the above graphic for a larger version! Chris Hastings made the graphic, so everybody say at once, “Thank You, Chris.”
See you in Calgary!
