Fear and Loathing in Delaware

Newark, the third largest city in the State of Delaware. Home to the State's flagship University. But we're not here to see the Fightin' Blue Hens. Our destination is the Aetna Fire Hall for a good old fashioned card show.

Shows like this were commonplace back in the 80s and 90s. The concept is simple: some local dealer rents out a conference room at a motel or fire hall, set up about 20-25 tables, and presto. Instant card show.

Santa Claus sent me one of those cheap battery-powered camcorders for Christmas, so I thought I'd use it to show you the scene. You know, video gonzo journalism. But the fascist at the door ordered me to put me camera it away.

I had to settle for shooting this in the parking lot.

All in all, a good way to kill a Sunday afternoon.

I'm digging the new mobile Stale Gum. I predict some awesome vids.

Is it pronounced NewARK? I seem to remember that from the Metroliner conductor.

They would have been wise to let the camera roll.

I figured it out it was the frame rate on the video, I'll upload my remix here shortly.
