Get Your Sign On, and Grind

Yes, it's the long-awaited sequel: Signapalooza II! Son of Signapalooza! Signapalooza: The Second Coming! Signapalooza: 2 Sign or Not 2 Sign! ... We've got a million of 'em! (But we'll stop there. For which I'm sure we're all 2 grateful.)

Johnny, Patti, and Tara are flying to LA today, and All That Skate is just THREE DAYS AWAY! But maybe you're still trying to make up your mind as to which poster (or fifty) you want to bring with you? Let the amazing Jenn Kittler come to your rescue and help further reduce you to a quivering pile of indecisive mush with these five exciting new designs:

In addition, the previous series of suggested signs are all still available here, and of course, please free to use any of them as a template to make your own.

Also: There's a rumor that the ban on banners MIGHT be lifted late this week. Watch this space for more details!

And: Can't make it to All That Skate? Johnny will be performing again the following Sunday, October 10, in Skate for the Heart at the Covelli Centre in dynamic Youngstown, Ohio! (Motto: "Literally the middle of nowhere! Because it's exactly halfway between New York and Chicago.") Show details are available here (yes! Sasha and Johnny together again!), and ticket info is here. Please note that the show time has been moved up from 7 p.m. to 5 p.m., and doors will open at 4 p.m. And yes! Please bring posters to this show also! Although we're still working on ironing out the details with the Covelli Centre, whose event policies include this frosty tidbit:

Banners and signs may only be brought into building after authorization from Security, or Marketing Director. Banners and signs may not be hung up, and must be removed after conclusion of event.

All righty then. We'll let you know how that goes.

I'm also fascinated to learn what the rehearsal schedule might be for Skate for the Heart, since the Covelli Centre is hosting this event, for which tickets are still available, the night before at 7 p.m. on Saturday (so hey, if' you're getting into town early ... ):

Anyway, there's much to look forward to the next two weekends! So please go get your sign on, and grind. Thank you.

Yes! You can own a fine art print of Johnny
perfect for any/every room in the house!

Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper? The night before a figure skating show? Oh that's just too freakin' funny, lol!

Still haven't decided what sign(s) to bring! I don't have a lot of colored ink left in the printer and really can't afford to buy any... I need to think some more I guess!

Thanks again MM for keeping us up to day with all of this, and for writing your brilliant and amusing Blogs!

I love all these posters! I so-sadly won't be at either of these upcoming shows, but it doesn't mean they won't come in handy down the road! And I don't usually go for wallpaper in my house, but...

AAAUUUGGGHHH! I will be so mad if they allow banners into the Staples Center after telling us for so long that it is out of the question! I would have seen that one was made that would have humbled the rococo of Versailles!
I just hope some enterprising Los Angelinos have enough time to get their banner grind on for Johnny if it is permitted!
...And if there is a TV camera anywhere near a Johnny fan, make sure you get face and sign time!
OMG, how I wish I could be at this show!

(Although, the Billion Dollar Baby in me admits to more than a passing interest in the Alice Cooper Halloween Hootenanny going on in the Covelli Center the night before SFH...I imagine skaters and rockers will be passing each other in the night at whatever hotel hosts VIPs in be a fly on the wall...)

Thank you for keeping us informed Binky, and now it's time to get some signs together for Ohio....Ganbatte!

It's Signapalooza II: Electric Boogaloo. Obviously. (so obvious I'm surprised no one beat me to the joke)
