i put "tour de fat boise 2009" in every title so that hopefully people are able to search for and find these...i wanted to show everyone whose picture i took their own photo(s), but obviously that's not possible. i think i might make up photo CDs for some of the performers though--at least for the sprockettes, and possibly one to send to new belgium.
^here's the schedule. i have a post to correspond with pretty much every event except for sean hayes, whom i didn't find that interesting (especially when i found out he was not the guy from will and grace, because what the hell kind of entertainment would sean hayes from will and grace provide, i was all curious when i saw his name on the list, so maybe i'm biased against sean hayes the singer for that reason), and the finale, because i left just before it ended.
^there was a whole mess of gnomes this year. i don't approve. at least The Gnome was wearing his old slow ride champion belt so i could tell him apart.
^i did not intend to make these people look like they're naked and having an outdoor orgy, but i'm not unhappy that it turned out this way.
this guy was a road warrior. his costume was awesome except... he was wearing a bulbous, pink rubber butt. it must add some dimension to the ensemble the significance of which escapes me. it is kind of an ironic costume to wear to a celebration of bikes that shuns motorized transport, so maybe he was making an extra little statement in case the irony was not apparent.
