Beyond Wonderland 2011

Great to be back for our 3rd show with Insomniac! Lots of familiar faces and a warm welcome for the snail and crew! This year we brought our new remote fired flame ball and let the crowd light up the night sky to warm the rest of us. I always enjoy seeing people smile when they realize they just made that huge fireball. Meet up with some great DJ’s and even got to hang out with Paris Hilton!

Each one of these fire balls shoots a different shape. Disk, ball and a ring.

The die hard fans waited in line to get a turn at shooting the fire from the snail. Lots of smiles.




IDEO Party

IDEO Holiday Party in SF 2011

The Boiler Bar crew got a chance to show off our toys and bars at IDEO party this weekend. Great event and lots of great people. So fun to hang out with such creative people. Great costumes, and the sets they made for us were over the top! Events like these remind me why I moved to the bay area and stayed!  Hope to do more with the people I met last night.

Empire of Dirt

What a great relaxing party that was.

One of the funnest things of the night were the steam punk wheel chairs we made from 1940’s airport fire extinguisher. I woke up at 2 am last night with a design to make them into giant tricycles. Stay tuned for those on the playa. Video

Tanzee the fire Queen

Theres a dragon in my driveway. Anyone who wants to help me write the children’s book with this title let me know.

This made us cry with pride, even Andy. This is Ann, Keith’s daughter, she is 16 and put us all to shame as performers. Stay tuned to what she does in the next!
