    For you to sit through the entire lineup?

    Man that’s Hell on Earth right there. Two full days of chanting “Love Trumps Hate” and blaming everything on the white man. I figure $50,000 is worth 2 days of my sanity, plus the people watching would be pristine. I don’t know who most of those people are but I’m assuming they are the worst.

    I like Common. Either dont know the rest, or dont like em.

    50k...sure i could get behind that.
    Hell, I'd probably do it for less because its a lot of money for, lets say, 20 hours of suffering.
    Ive suffered through jobs for a whole hell of a lot less.
    So lets say I'd bottom out at 20k

    It depends on a lot of things. The major one that comes to mind, can I make snide comments and ruffle the feathers of all those retards? Can I bring ear plugs and a gas mask? Can I wear my NRA shirt and MAGA hat? Will there be a gun buster sign? So many questions.....

    Truth is no amount of money would get me to be part of that crowd. This looks more like a setup for a mass disaster than any sort of entertainment event.

    Everyone’s got a price. I’d be happy to be the test subject for this one. Someone setup a GoFundMe and start this bidding war. It’s a win-win. You guys get to have fun thinking you’re sending me to hell on earth. I get a lot of money to sit in a posh NYC hotel ordering all the room service they have available for a weekend.

    Quadruple double triple mega ice cream sundaes with T-bone steak, here I come.

    I've read some of Malcolm Gladwell's stuff and enjoyed it. Don't know where he stands on every issue, but I'm kinda surprised to see his name with some of those others.

    You know what is infuriatingly funny bout this? If we had an “opposite of this thing” event when Oblahblah was in office, we’d be labeled racist miscreants who just can’t get with the program. Yet “they” get to flaunt this bullshanny all over the place, every media outlet, with zero recourse.

    They’re radical zealots. when you keep a zombie politician alive to “headline” your...umm...”event,” you oughtta take a step back and think “what the F are we doing here.”

    I mean, if Trump lost, life and our country would be not-so-great right now. But I’d be damned if his supporters would be hosting mass pity parties like this one with him as the guest of honor.

    He's also an NRA board member WTH?.... but I guess that really shouldn't surprise me. :confused:

    Then again maybe he's attempting to be a lone voice of reason amongst the rest of them. Heck, who knows anymore what's really going on.

    Mark Sanford is there too and he’s another guy with principles. Ok, political principles. We won’t talk about his personal life.

    What a bunch of total douche bags. Never forget it is a small club, and you ain't in it. I wouldn't take $1,000 to sit through that. Probably not $10,000. Well maybe with a free drink or two.

    I think I used to...or at least didn't mind him.

    But he showed his colors a couple times recently, and I have zero interest in being see at anything he's associated with.

    I know 12 for sure, but only because one is one there twice. A couple of those I'm not exactly sure why I know them. :D

    Two more that are possibles (maybe even "most likely"), but common enough names that I'm not 100% certain.

    A little background...

    OZY Fest—a real festival that has nothing to do with Ozzy Osbourne, and that bills itself as "part music festival, part TED Talk, part food fair," which just seems like a surefire recipe for a smugness overdose—is coming to Central Park for its third annual weekend of polite conversation and polite musical performances. And they have quite the huge lineup filled with disparate, random personalities this year, including the just-announced Hillary Clinton, comedians Michelle Wolf and Chelsea Handler, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, writer Malcolm Gladwell, author Salman Rushdie, activist Rose McGowan, and more.
    Yeah, you're not getting off that easy. There's also actress Laverne Cox, sportscaster Jemele Hill, billionaire Tom Steyer, comedian Hasan Minaj, designers Christian Siriano and Isaac Mizrahi, legend Martha Stewart, J-Lo's boyfriend A-Rod, writer Roxane Gay, celebrity chefs Marcus Samuelsson and Roy Choi, Padma Lakshmi, CNN correspondents Dana Bash and Jake Tapper, and honestly I don't want to keep listing everyone, but you get the point, there's a lot of interesting-ish people coming to this thing. The musical performances will be courtesy of Passion Pit, Common, Young the Giant, and Grouplove. Also, HQ host Scott Rogowsky, Trump punching bag Rep. Mark Sanford, and alleged Beyonce biter Sanaa Lathan will be there, because OZY Fest is truly a buffet of names you've heard before.
    If you think I'm being too cynical about TED Talk: Central Park Edition, then let's see what festival founder Carlos Watson's vision for the event really is. “The whole mission of the festival is to bring diverse voices to one stage, and expose people to unexpected perspectives,” he told the Daily News. “In years past, people who purchased a ticket to see Jason Derulo have been totally wowed by Jeb Bush.” I guarantee that no one has ever uttered the words "I was totally wowed by Jeb Bush"—but please, for the love of god, if you have been wowed by Jeb Bush, if have even been huh'd by Jeb Bush, let us know in the comments.

    Note this signage is a little different...

    I would seriously chip in if you wore go pro the whole time lol. Then throw it on YouTube and make some nice coin until it gets demonetized for no good reason other than butt hurting some snowflakes.

    I don’t understand why Killary would be at Ozyfest though. Makes zero sense.
