The tallest midget in "The Wizard of Oz"

That’s the phrase that came to my mind when I was trolling through Upcoming and found this entry.

(The largest Cure/Smiths dance party in the US!)

Look, I love the Smiths and I possibly love the Cure even more. I like the Black Cat, too. I’ve been there on many an occasion, and while I think it’s a perfectly fine sized place… if it’s the location of the largest anything in the US, well, I’d suggest you find some other trait of that event to brag about.

On second though, why brag about it being the largest event no matter where is it? If the Cat could accommodate 2,000 people rather than about 500 would that really make anyone want to go more? Maybe it’s a locale thing – by the time I moved up here I wasn’t out at dance clubs on a weekly basis anymore, but I really like the more intimate venues here vs the places in my hometown. Are those of you who still go out shaking your ass really pining for the megaclub crowds?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
