We’re gearing up for another glittery evening here at the Blogger Bungalow: A New Year’s Eve of Nonsense and Delight. Tonight our fetishy and fabulous party assistants will be Kumi Monster, Maxine Holloway, with Mistress and Mister of the house, Violet Blue and dotBen.
The party will be livestreamed via laptop on Violet Blue’s Justin.tv channel – but you can watch, chat and join in the party in real time on the Blogger Bungalow Nonsense and Delight page. We’ll start streaming during setup, around 7pm PST and we’ll be on through the night, toasting you into 2011.
We’ll be tweeting, uploading photos live, streaming and chatting all night as we drink and laugh 2010 away. We hope you can join us.
This was another failed Eye Fi test. I know what is wrong: basically, Eye Fi must be on life support as a company, and so no one is driving – when Twitter switched to oAuth no one updated on Eye Fi’s end.
Which is a shame, because it would be great – or, if Eye Fi added yFrog or TwitPic to their destinations. Think about how fun that would be….
Cookies and booze and gay 2011 calendars, oh my.
The Blogger Bungalow blog is getting a little fluff prior to our Merry Macabre party!
We hate that we can’t invite everyone to each party; alas, the Bungalow is not a mansion. This blog and all its media is how we can have you share the evening with us.
We now have a house Twitter account @BloggerBungalow. Guests will have access to tweet from this account throughout the party, in addition to posting from the blog if they wish.
The house camera is the Lumix DMC-TS2 12.1 MP Waterproof, featured in my recent ZDNet article Gifts That Keep On Giving: Offbeat Gadgets, Toys and Tech.
We will be adding live video components as well for the evening’s festivities. Stay tuned.
The camera is set to upload to the Blogger Bungalow Flickr account and to Tweet the photos. Party setup begins in 3… 2…
Just fluffing the blog as we get ready for another terrifying sequel… the sexiest one yet.

to us, and we love her for it! Thank you for a great way to spend our New Years. We promise not to spill any absinthe!
Unfortunately I did not have the camera in hand while Jiz Lee was posting, otherwise this would be accompanied with pix of me giving her a hand job while she was posting so just use your imagination.
(we will be leaving shortly, wish I could be in two places at once but poly love is resulting in a NYE party crawl.)
When Violet’s Eye-fi cam suddenly appeared in our possession, Syd Blakovich and I couldn’t help but grab KumiMonster and get HNT on Violet’s bed. Heh.
More fun, and hickies on the flicker feed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bloggerbungalow
the bungalow is
buzzing and energetic
don’t forget gift bag
the fabulous colette vogele makes an appearance…
there are lawyers here.
lots of people wearing red.
i walked into the party to the cake farts porn on screen and turns out i’m not a big fan as you can see here
however, then things quickly turned much more my way when i saw scott beale and he took a video of me demonstrating my extremely high wedge heels aka interview party shoes! he will post it later so no girls will ever have to be short again. the one episode when i forgot my interview shoes is here
also, a test cross-post before the festivities 🙂
From the Eye-Fi in my camera, through Flickr to the blogger bungalow blog. The ultimate: an instantly uploading party camera! Now, for the party…
Looks like the trolls are hung over in the morning. 🙂
I had a great time last night – big thanks go out to super-delicious couple Violet and Jonathan, and of course Ruby O’ Ghosts. Gotta love that name.
Next time, hopefully she’ll let us light up her M-1000s 😉
Monkey on the bottle! there can be nothing more to life….done.
everyone reading over my shoulder second guessing me. It’s amazing Violet doesn’t hate me. OR MAYBE SHE DOES.
There’s a couple of us here tonight, putting SFGate commenters to shame. Ha! We’re in yer party, controllin’ yer media.
Violet just opened an incredibly beautiiful bottle of absinthe. This is probably one of the most perfect moments in my life, because asw long as I’ve known Violet, I’ve described her to people (because everyone inevitably asks me “What’s Violet Blue really like?”) as “like a character from an Anne Rice novel. No, one of the good ones.” And as absinthe is a pivotal device in more than one AR novel (again the good ones, and YES, there are good ones, shut up), it’s a wonderful convergence Yay.
I don’t really know what I’m supposed to do. but I’m sure it will be ok.
called st. george in alameda…
refill drinks and run back out. violet in stilettos, tearing down the stairs with roman candles under her arm…..
seven minutes ’til midnight and there is a mad dash for explosives and a gigantic brown goo oozing from the fridge. another bottle pops and party favors are out front. hearing protection required.

– reading World War Z by max brooks.
– traversing the dangerous disease ridden South American continent.
– devouring chocolate desserts from local confectioners like Citizen Cake.
– Graduating from that educational pit that is SFSU.
– Being accepted to a really hot graduate school.
– Receiving a robot spine in the mail and installing.
– Watching gooood erotic films.
– Absolutely nothing.
Lance’s brain is in his stomach so he can’t blog.
1) This year, I’m actually going to start networking to achieve my long-term career goals in the exciting world of hardcore pornography.
2) In 2008, I plan to tone down that hyper personality.
3) Come the new year, I really should restrict all that hanging from cranes.
4) I’m really going to sell that house.
5) finish this…
i usually have many resolutions, but this year i will keep the list short. one thing i’m going to do is climb a mountain. i tried to do this last year but we were thwarted by lack of snow and a little “difficulty” with the altitude. now i’m stronger and know what to expect. i’m also going to travel to a continent i’ve never been to. (this will most likely be south america or africa.) so, that’s the start of my list for 2008. thanks, violet, for hosting such an absinth-filled and festive send off to 2007! -colette
When I was a teen I could hardly wait for New Years as there would be booze and getting drunk.
During college New Years meant possibly the best party I had ever gone to. However, $100 for open bar at a club in Manhattan often meant getting far too few weak drinks and fools from Jersey. I moved to San Francisco after college and went to equally high expectation parties that were usually let down.
Finally New Years became a night for apartment parties. Low expectations with very favorable results.
That crescendoed in having the best apartment parties possible, which turned into parties we threw at clubs with open bars for $100. (Full circle, huh?)
Got smarter and found locales we could have big parties but for free. But oh the work. Preparation would take months, all for one night.
All this effort for a what? I got very confused by that. I appreciated being at a party with all my friends and their friends, but oh the effort and the drama.
For the last couple years New Years has ceased to either be the best party ever or a palpable let down. It simple means a chance to appreciate with the people I’m with that we stayed alive another year, all of us in that room, and that we’ll get to see what happens in the one that comes.
That’s what New Years means to me at age 37.
1 – It’s very warm and awesome here, both personally and in the sense of temperature. It’s like walking into a jungle of well-dressed and extremely friendly monkeys on New Years eve near the equator except it’s not.
2 – Turtlenecks, are awesome, especially when they lack sleeves.
3 – Apparently the dolmas are awesome.
4 – Verbal tag cloud forming. Tag clouds are Jella Rad aka Awesome.
5 – I can’t see. See flickr for reasons why. Not being able to see gives us a new perspective on the year. New perspectives are awesome.
6 – Awesome is awesome.
7 – What does Taint Muncher mean? It means ‘Awesome’ in German.
8 -People are now talking about surfthechannel.com. Why get sued when you can watch every television program ever. That site is awesome.
9 – Hey it’s Scott Beale, can’t believe he’s here. He’s Awesome. Lori, his lady, is here too. She is awesome as well.
10 – No one knows yet but I brought vinyl and brass with me. Vinyl and Brass are awesome materials.

Happy New Year to everyone! We’re having a party here at the Blogger Bungalow, and this is the unmoderated group blog where revelers can post as they drink, play, and celebrate. In case you came here from somewhere besides my blog, I’m Violet Blue, and hope you enjoy our liveblogging tonight — join us, because we with you could be here. We’re about to get started setting up an embedded live webcam, too. Enjoy!
