Naked in Public: The Genius of Doug Fergus

From the band's website:
"Heartwarming and fun-filled; poignant and profound all at the same time, NIP delivers irresistible - gems, ditties, and jingles disguised as alternative pop/rock."

Be sure to check out our other favorite song from No Filter, "Does She Have a Sister".

"Would you like to meet her?/TOO BAD, she's MINE./Does she have a sister?/
NO! YOU LOSE! Don't cry."

Are you sick of the Fair yet? We're not.

It's been two weeks since we applied that fairy glitter to our eyelids and spent the day burning Chako tan lines into our feet and worshipping Mother Earth at the Oregon Country Fair.  We'd say it's about time for that highlight video.  Come along with us and relive the glory of Friday the 13th of July, 2012 in Veneta, Oregon.

Medford Mugshot of the Week

Something bad happened to Bobby Joe Anderson when he spent the night in county.  
It may or may not have involved Danny Elfman music and magic dust sprinkles. 
Turns out there's precedent for this kind of thing, though.

Two sides of the same billboard outside St. Peter's Lutheran church on E. Main in Medford:

There are several possibilities that might explain the message above (e.g. loss of 'D', attempt at cleverness), but...

...here we're totally stumped.  You never see your airbag because you're never in a wreck?  
Or you're in a wreck so bad that you're killed instantly and never have a chance to see the airbag?

The Jackson County Fair

At the Jackson County Fair, the real entertainment is not the middle-aged rockers belting out Led Zeppelin on the PremierWest Bank Dinner Stage.  It's not a walk through the 4-H barn where prize-winning steers fight over hay bags.  It's not the mediocre rides, the philly cheese steak or counting the teeth of carnies on one hand.  If you want to have a good time at the JCF, you keep your eyes peeled for two things and two things only.  The first is children being tortured, which manifests in three specific ways:

The second thing to watch out for is boob tattoos.  We didn't realize this, but apparently Central Point, OR is the original home of the tit tat.

"I wanna be just like 
Mommy when I grow up."

Okay, we don't want to be ungenerous.  There were a couple of other cool things at the fair:

But as the day drew to a close, we couldn't help but wish we had spent it in:

Rogue Vogue: Michael Antonopoulos' gluten-free Fire Dance Birthday Party and natural jewelry

At birthday boy Michael Antonopoulos' party in a private Ashland home last Friday, fire dancers entertained as the night sky darkened. Antonopoulos, aka Ton Ton, is the mastermind behind the new mobile kitchen Agape's Affections. "Healthful indulgence is an art and passion for me," he told partygoers near a table laden with his platters of his gluten- and sugar-free foods. Quietly, he confided: "I'm an entrepreneur, fitness trainer, martial artist, yogi, and the foods I create with are always healthful, delicious and intentional."

OCF Update

The Oregon Country Fair was...overwhelming in its goodness.  We have lots of video footage that we're culling in preparation for creating a short video of the highlights.  
Please enjoy these photos as a preview (the last one in particular --  someone sure gets a gold star for multi-tasking).

elusive as...sasquatch.

Dear Readers,

Hopefully you've enjoyed the recent flurry of activity here on RV Confidential after a prolonged period of silence.  But the next two days are going to be dark again, because we are once more venturing out of the val, this time headed for...yes, you guessed it:

The Oregon Country Fair!

For those of you who have no experience with this distinctly Oregon-flavored event, here are some teasers (courtesy of various past fair-goers).  And expect more pictures and reporting from us after the weekend.

Oh, Hosey...

Public intoxication and second degree burns from faulty fireworks are some of the necessary evils that keep the natural order of things in balance during any small town Fourth of July celebration; the puke scented Yang to the freshly made organic Oregon huckleberry funnel cake Yin.

But there is, inevitably, always someone who takes it too far and ends up pooping all of our parties. Sadly, this year, the winner is our very own Wesley Kevin Hoseclaw (AKA The Hoseclaw).

From Ashland Daily Tidings:

Whoulda thought that our happy-go-lucky friend was capable of such...unseemliness?

The bright side? At least he's not smiling in his booking photo...right?

Independence Day: Ashland, Oregon, U.S.A.

Dearest Readers,

Please accept our sincerest apologies for the recent lack of updates. We are finally back in the swing of things after our summertime jaunt down in NorCal. Now that we have all the nudie swimming and cat mummy-peeping out of our systems (more on that later), we are ready to bring you the creme de la creme of the bountiful RV once again.

BTW, here's our first original video. Enjoy!
