February 20, 2010 John Henry’s, Eugene, Oregon
Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend – and Wikipedia – Eugene is the undisputed grass seed capital of the world . The tribe thanks you.
According to Moonalice legend, today is February 20th – 2/20. We realized that if it’s 2/20 here, it must be 4/20 somewhere. We consulted the legend and discovered that our instincts were correct. When it’s February 20 here, it’s April 20 in the central time zone. Given the winter they have had, a spring day would be welcome. At midnight, the central time zone will return to its regularly scheduled blizzard.
According to Moonalice legend, tonight’s poster shows the High wire act of John Henry Wallenda Moonalice. John Henry popular because he got higher than any other high wire performer . . . and he shared. The HIGHlight of his act was a cartwheel that he did off the wire. The key to the cartwheel was the landing. Apparently John Henry did the cartwheel only once. Fortunately, we caught it in this poster.
According to Moonalice legend, today is Hoodie-Hoo day. This is a day to fight the blues and welcome the approach of spring. You were supposed to go outside at noon, wave your hands above your head and chant “Hoodie-Hoo!” It’s guaranteed to make you feel good. Let me see a show of hands. How many here were NOT aware of Hoodie Hoo day? I have good news for you! We can go back in time!!! All we have to do is declare Moonalice Standard Time and we can go back to any time we like. Are you ready to chant Hoodie-Hoo? Okay. 3 – 2 – 1 … It’s NOON! Hoodie-hoo!!
