It's official, I'm going to Psytopia!
    #4533867 - 08/14/05 03:08 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

After much delegation and thinking, me and my friend Stacy has decided to go to Psytopia. We leave this Wednesday morning and will return 23rd. Shortly after I return, I will provide a report with pictures (if I can find my lost digital camera).

I am curious to know if any fellow shroomerites are going.

I'll be in Alaska that week (19th-27th). I mighta considered something like psytopia for my vacation if I hadn't booked the Alaska trip almost a year ago. But have fun.

What all are you doing when you're up here in Alaska?  If you need a tour of the REAL Alaska you let me know! (Not just those mountains and lakes and crap)

Unfortunately I probably won't get a chance to see much of the "real" Alaska since we are coming via cruise ship. But I have been getting some helpful hints from a friend who was born and raised in Juneau on what to see and do with our limited time in each port.

I will also be spending one night in Anchorage (Friday the 26th). Any suggestions?

Well if you were spending saturday night instead of friday night in Anchorage you'd be able to catch a rave, I'm not sure how it will be since I haven't gone to one put on by these guys but I'll probably end up going anyway. 

I'd suggest finding directions to Chilkoot Charlie's.. the only fun bar in Anchorage, unfortunatly it'll be another year and a half before I can get in (legally :tongue:).

If you're looking for anything when you stop in town though, send me a PM and things can be arranged!

What is Psytopia?

...well, it shouldn't matter. I really, don't have an extra $1000 to throw around right now.

I'll see you there, I'm going too.  Look for an old hippy with a bald head, braided beard and too many earrings.  :laugh:

Old hippy? Haha, I might see alot of those there.

One of the bands (The Brew) cancelled which sucks because I was really looking forward to seeing them.

UPDATE:

I found my digital camera. But on the same night I also sprained my ankle by jumping off of a third step trying to avoid a cat while I was drunk (it sounded like a pencil being snapped in half). So my ankle is swollen. So hopefully this wont effect my vacation that bad.

The entire entertainment lineup, that's all the bands and comedians, have been cancelled. We may still get some speakers and vendors.

There's a long letter about it here:

Psytopia Homepage

Plan B anyone?

I'm going. I guess we'll have to make our own fun.

That sucks. However, $950 is not bad for a 7 week stay in Jamaica.

Heres a quote from the guy who is putting on Psytopia, Alex Pearlstein:

"It brings me great displeasure to have to tell you all that due to events that occurred between Friday night and Monday morning, we have had to cancel the performance aspects of Psytopia. Please believe me that we tried to do anything and everything in our power to rectify this situation. About two weeks ago we learned that we would not receive some sponsorship dollars and painstakingly worked to resolve the situation. We still would have been able to handle the loss and continue, until we did not receive cancellation notices or complete payments from 21 ticket holders. These two losses made it impossible to continue because it equated to a $30,000 deficit. Again, please understand that we tried every possible solution and option available, so that we could to continue as planned."

This is why for an event that is expensive, you dont take payments. You must make people pay the full amount up front. I also wish that Alex wouldn't have waited until the last day before everyone flies out to Jamaica to inform everyone that there is problems.

This is what I found on The Brews(band that was going to play) website:

"The guy putting the event on was not the most organized guy we have ever dealt with and we strung along up until this morning on important information (plane tickets/gear plans). We were very weakly informed this morning that we will not be attending."

So far so good.

"The Brew sincerely apologizes to the fans who actually paid the near thousand dollars a ticket to go see us."

What the hell? I didn't pay $950 just to see them! That is pretty damn arrogant to assume that people paid $950 just to see The Brew.

"We are seeing what legal action can be taken. Unfortunately, we aren't the only people who were lead to believe that they were going."

They make it sound like Alex purposefuly mislead all the bands. Legal action? What kind of legal action could The Brew possible take?

I've been seeing so many people wanting their money back, and wanting to sue Alex. I don't think he has enough money to do anything of the sort. I just hope NORML, MAPS, Erowid, etc, get something out of this.

I plan to have a good time drinking and shrooming. Bring an MP3 player. :-D

Well, our crew was set to do some lectures and speak as representatives of our mushroom farm in Jamaica, JXMI. I haven't heard a single thing from Alex though, and we are expecting to fly out tomorrow and be checked into rooms that were being paid by him for our services down there.

I'm wondering if we are super-fucked here. Alex seemed like a nice guy when I talked to him over the last 10 or so months, so I'm really hoping he takes care of us and the other speakers who spent a great deal of time and money in preparation for this event.

Anybody heard anything else. PM me if you'd wish to speak privately.

Mr. switters, at your service :wink:. Looks like we are going, but we are getting fucked out of the free room and board promised to us by Alex... looks like we'll have a collection jar at our table and at our speeches (if we do them) to try and recover as much money as possible.
