Dude Ranch Party

Back in June of 2008, Emily from The Muggabears started a blog called "Dude Ranch Party" to document the going-abouts of the DBA loft. But as fellow bloggers already know, bloggin' ain't easy and the site has gotten stale. "Dude Ranch" is what the loft here was called on this ancient Myspace page . The name never really stuck, although some still jokingly refer to it as such. The best post from "Dude Ranch Party" has to be the WHEEL CHAIR JOUST NIGHT (click for videos), A.K.A. Tim's birthday. Tim used to live at the loft for about a year and is in this great one man band Abandoned Lighthouse. On the night of his birthday, people got wasted and crashed the house wheelchairs into each other. If you look closely, you can see Mac wearing an Optimus Prime helmet into the melee. From about 2006-2008, there were 3 wheelchairs in the loft at all times. Downhill races were held, people were wheeled to bars in them, wheelies were popped. There were even times when the wheelchairs were used for their original purpose! Then one got thrown over a fence across the street and one never returned home from a bar and now we have one lonely, limping wheel chair. A wheelchair that needs a wheelchair.
