Rising Tide 5

It’s hard to believe but the fifth annual Rising Tide Conference is just around the corner. First Draft’s very own Scout Prime suggested the idea for the first one and a bunch of NOLA bloggers took the ball and ran with it. If you’re interested in learning more, head over torisingtidenola.com. The conference will be held Saturday 8/28 at theHowlin’ Wolf in New Orleans. If you can’t attendwe accept donations as well. Holy pledge week, Batman.

We’ll have all sorts of interesting and, hopefully, entertaining content planned. I’ll be moderating the annual politics panel, which thus far features the dean of NOLA political punditry, Clancy DuBos and Jason (Ashe Dambala) Berry ofAmerican Zombiefame. I’m already working on the diaper jokes. Last year I called David Vitter a “human cockroach” because of his survival skills and the bastard, alas,remains ahead in the polls.

Here’s this year’s poster, which was done for the fourth year in a row byGreg (Suspect Device) Peters:

  1. That is another beautiful poster!
    This will be my third Rising Tide. I would have made it last year but the foot-long scar on my abdomen and all it entailed was still kinda making me puny.
    It’s gonna be great!

  2. I know it’s prolly inappropriate but I find the angel very alluring.

  3. Yeah, but that’s not McAlary’s come hither look. So, wonder whom else’s ass Peters has been, er, tapping as, er, inspiration.
    I will be at RT as is usual. That should attract and repel/repulse y’all accordingly.

  4. Maitri – we should have a “Stained Angel lookalike contest” (I’d be the fleshier version)! 🙂
    I’m registered and can’t wait to see folks again!

  5. I guess we’ll have to play taps or something equally military or is that silly. The poster is *great* Greg.

  6. If you’re referring to the Vitter stuff, Greta, I know people who plan to vote for him who think he’s a dickhead. Nobody ever voted for Vitter cos they like him. Besides, I also call Keith Richards (who I like) a human cockroach: some people are survivors pure and simple.
