This Friday 9/5/2008 is Frost Park Chalk Off Episode XXII at noon at 9th and Pacific Avenue in downtown Tacoma.
All are welcome.
The Melon Show will be this week's Frost Park sponsor this week:
Tacoma nearly lost Electric Elliot to San Francisco. We can only hope that Frost Park played some part in his decision to stay.
The Melon show started at the University of Puget Sound Campus before it went "big time."
The Melon show produces podcasts, interviews, investigative reporting and are very involved in politics.
The range of people covered ranges from Tim Eyeman, Sontagg, Hillary Clinton and Robert "The Traveller" Hill.
Here's some of The Melon's Best Work IMO:
Call Bob: A Tyson Tyson Report:
Whoop Ass: Can of the Dead Trailer (Melon Does Zombies)
And of course, the Frost Park Trailer:
Frost Park Chalk Off: Episode IX
In order to offer something for everyone and to facilitate and induce community building free of competitiveness, The Melon Show will provide "Free Melon for All" this Friday.
Prizes for Victor:
In addition, Electric Elliot via the Melon Show has offered the following prizes for the victor in Episode XXII, winner take all:
Prize 1 : A GOLDEN MELON
Electronic Elliot explains:
2. To the victor, a price with unprecedented sweetness, a prize so grand no human before has redeemed it, a prize with such gleam that it would blind Cerberus in his tracks, the holiest of holy, the mystery of the ark, the secret of the ooze, the heavyweight champion of the woooorrrrld: A GOLDEN MELON.
Prize No. 2: U Tube Fame Via Melon Show Interview
The chalk off victor will be entitled to their own U Tube video interview on The Melon Show. The Melon show has interviewed US Senator Parry Murray, Congressman Norm Dicks and many other politicians.
This video could be used a flagship to bring the chalk artist career to a new level through U Tube exposure.
Electric Elliot explains:
3. But that's not all. For the low, low price of sucking in the most votes at this Friday's Chalk Off's, you will be featured on themelononline.com in an exclusive biography video or podcast (the power of choice is yours!!!!)
Electronic Elliot is a master interviewer and will indulge the winning chalk artist in a substantial interview for distribution on Melon Online. He will take the time to get down to the essence of the artist describing how they channel the incarnate into the world of the living through art.
Possibilities Interview Questions to Chalk Victor
>>Possible Questions to RR Anderson
You have stated in an earlier interview that
"[t]he conspiracy is REAL and is wholly consumed to steal away the SLACK innate in every free man, woman & child. The conspiracy dictates that flimsy illusions and self-serving delusions rule most people's lives."
Can you give us the example of what conspiracy are you referring to? Are you referring to corporations, government or both?
Also, has it occurred to you that people are comfortable with their "illusions" and just want to be left alone? Who are you to rip it from them?
>>Possible Questions to Stowe:
I understand you spend a great deal of time designing icing designs for cake during the day, and zombies at night no doubt causing you some conflict.
Have you thought of reconciling the two art forms in a new art genre? Zombies and Cake?
You recently published a poster "Better Know Your Zombies" describing many types of zombies and how to kill them. If you had to be a zombie, which one would you choose?
>>Possible Questions to Andrea "Lupingoddess" Lowen Trenbeath
From your website, you look to have a longstanding and deep affinity and identification with werewolves.
What epic event in your life caused you to undergo a metamorphosis from Andrea to full fledged "LupinGoddess" which you are now? Were you forced to hold off a pack of wild dogs at the age of 12 in the woods?
Also, if the world broke down into a final fight between humans and werewolves, and only one group could survive, which side would you fight on?
Prize No. 3: Mystery Prize
Electronic Elliot explains:
4. But that's not all! Yes it is...OR IS IT?

|I almost forgot Electric Elliot's interview with Robert "The Traveler" Hill when he was running for Sheriff:|
That's the kind of professionalism one can expect from Electronic Elliot.

|Elliot made this week's banner:|
Certainly different than what the chalkies usually produce.
A nice addition.
