Get Your Santa On–Here’s How!

rotateSantacon 2009 is coming up soon–time to wake up and get your Santa on! Watch some of the antics of LA’s Midnight Ridazz Santa Con Dec. 6, 2008 then click here to find a Santa Con near you! For those of you living near Art Predator, you’re in luck–Santa and Ms Claus are leading a merry band of Santas around town on bicycles this Friday Dec. 4! The ride leaves Ventura College at 5pm, then joins the regular ArtRide which will leave the Artists Union Gallery by 6pm.

If you go to a Santa Con, you gotta wear a suit! Here’s how to make one.

To consider how antics such as these fit into a global picture of change, subversion of the dominant paradigm and more, buy yourself a copy of Nowtopia: How Pirate Programmers, Outlaw Bicyclists, and Vacant Lot Gardeners Are Inventing the Future Today by Chris Carlsson (AK Press 2008).  Visit Nowtopia on the web at

For stories, pics and other details about Santa Cons here, there, and everywhere, search this site or check this site out which offers a collection of Santa Con carols including my favorite, Georgie Baby. If you need to remember the tune, or just want to see a wonderful version with Eartha Kitt, it’s here.
