Pretty Bird, Pretty Bird, Where’s She Goes No One Knows
If backing our KickStarter project on the internets just ain’t yer style, get out of the house and come on down to KINGS Barcade for a night of Chicken Shit Bingo and cold, cold beer this Monday, July 16th. We’ll have right pretty birds, plenty of prizes and some long, but often, odds. You’ll get to shout about seeing some tail feathers shake and support The Farmer Veteran Project .
As a point of clarification, Chicken Shit Bingo works more like a game of roulette. Players cheer on a beautiful hen until she stops on a numbered square and makes someone a lucky winner with a shake of her tail feathers. Squares will cost anywhere from $2 - $5 cash per game. The center square just happens to be a Duke Blue Devil (thanks to the beer ponging frat brothers across the street) and it costs four times as much to play there. But you’ll also win four times as much, so bet on Duke if you dare. Winners are given prizes and the option to donate half of their take to Vittles, which receives fiscal sponsorship from The Southern Documentary Fund, a registered 501 (c)(3). Mr. Blake Hartman will be providing some banjo music in between games.

It was a busy week(end) in Farmer Veteran land. On Friday, Alix and I headed out to Mt. Airy, NC to meet with, interview and film a new friend of the project, Anna Mann. Anna is a veteran of Bosnia and Iraq and is now farming poultry, fruit and nut trees and honey in an idyllic setting in the foothills of the NC mountains.
Then on Saturday, we headed out to the farm of the newly married Suttons, for a full day of wedding celebration. The day started with a farm tour, then a lunch with family and ended with a party that lasted late into the evening. It was full weekend and we look forward to adding some of the new footage to the film. Until then carry on!
