Remember how much you hate sobriety, logical limitations on things, and the 24 hour day? You have a way out. PDX.fm is hosting 30 Hour Drunk, a down home answer to the 30 Hour Day charity telethon. Friday, April 16th, 2010, starting at 4 pm: 30 people, 30 hours, limitless possibilities.
Ok, probably very limited possibilities.
PDX.fm is accepting applications right now, and you might just have what it takes. Their advice for getting in?
Here's a hint – be creative. We're looking for people who can be entertaining, handle their drunk, and have a good time doing it. We'll provide the beer, YOU provide the fun.
Assholes and career alcoholics need not apply.
I'm urging you all to do your best, but I'm urging three of you very specifically.
Richard Bain, Portland Comedian.
Bain is funny, seemingly comfortable with a prolonged drunk and locally (and sustainably!) farmed.
Steve Novick, Political Activist
Novick is used to being in the news, has enough leeway in his public image to appear drunk once, and can open everybody's beers.
Mine That Bird, 2009 Kentucky Derby Winner
He's used to being the champion, won't crack under the pressure and, with a body mass at least twice that of any other contender, Mine That Bird shouldn't have any problems keeping up. Also, he's a horse.
