Talking April 6th Toronto expo pics !!!!

Okay gang, this time around there was a real special treat...not only was it the expo..but it was also sSnakeSs.com's first birthday being celebrated, as well as PcPc 15th anniversary. Im going to mix the pics up a little..but ill start with a story...i always have to

The Saturday before the party started out good. I was on my way to drive Jeff to a function that he had to go to. We drove down the Highway with no problems until everytime we hit a little bump the car made a strange noise. Jeff commented to me that he kept getting this strange vibration going up his body as well....and this time he wasnt sitting in my lap and steering ( thats a joke ). So after awhile i finally decided to go and check it out...i figured that it was just my exhaust falling further off. So i look under and find what looked to be like two rod like pieces of metal hanging down just below where jeff was sitting. So i pulled on one...when i did that i noticed that jeff sunk in his seat a little more....so then i kicked it...and when i did that jeff went up. So using my vast mechanical skills...i decided that infact my diagnoses was that the passenger seat was now falling completely through the floor of the car!!! Being the two brave soldiers that we are we decided to carry on as jeff held onto the roof so he didnt fall through and die...maybe one day i will fix that So eventually jeff made it home in one piece and i continued on the way back....when something else happed. My wiper blade...which came as original equipment on my 87 honda decided it was time to leave as well...so it did..right on the highway....ever driven a car in the winter on the highway with your head out the window?

Okay enough of the stories...lets get to the good part...here is some pics and some of the usual characters from the party the night before the show....special thanks to Port Credit Pets for the party and for those members who made the long drive

Here is a shot of the large crowd of ppl who attended the party and who were entertained by local Toronto band The Statistics



For those of you who have never heard The Statistics..check them out online at :http://www.walkingintraffic.com/#
Make sure to watch the cartoon video..its a great vid and a great song...please support the band who supports the site and the herper community as this was a free show!
Here are some pics of the Statistics







And everyone knows PcPc own Chris who is also the guitarist for The Statistics



Some more party pics and faces

Here are Member Heather (a.k.a PunkiePornoStar) and Nick (a.k.a. Chappy)

Members Kyle and Jordan



Member Nuno tries to steal a pic of me



An un-identified couple...and Nuno's big head...near the end of the night at the party



So being that the party would run late...and the show was the next day and i had to be there early, i decided that i would stay at a hotel room...instead of doing the drive all the way home. So here are some pics of the hotel, some members...and some of the partying that was going on after the show

This was a sign that i saw on an enclosure at PcPc when i visited after the show....Baz did not end up buying this Monitor..but luckily a really good home was found for him by Member Jason H who bought him up at first sight! I was lucky enough to be there when they captured and packaged the big guy..and i even got movie footage of it that i post when i figure out how to do so here
