Win a Prize from Good Vibrations!

In case you’re still searching for inspiration for our first erotic short-fiction contest (“How did the condom end up on the bus?“), here’s some exciting news to get your quill dipped in ink: a goodie bag from Good Vibrations!

Yes, the awesome folks who brought you the Good Vibrations Guide To Sex, the Indie Erotic Film Festival, and of course many delightful naughty toys, are giving away a goodie bag to our contest winner! So stop being bashful, get those creative juices flowin’, and send us 250 words’ worth of your best hypothesis on how the condom ended up on Muni.

If you think our favorite mode of transportation doesn’t jive well with “business time,” consider this:

– Perhaps you’ve been flirting with the handsome stranger sitting next to you on the N when the train pulls an emergency stop underground, all lights go off, and you feel a hand on your thigh…
– Or perhaps you and your new girl had a couple of drinks one night and decided to scale the fence of the Muni yard, where you found an unlocked bus and got down to business, only to be discovered by the security guard, who decides that…
– Maybe you’re coming back home from a late late night at the office on an empty bus, and the bus driver, who looks surprisingly like Clive Owen, asked you if it’s ok to take a shortcut to your stop…

Well, you tell us the rest 😉

So let us know, in 250 words or less by Oct. 28, how you think the condom ended up on the bus. We will read the winning entry and award the prize at the next Muni Diaries spoken-word party on Oct. 30.

To jog your memory, here are the real pictures that prompted this contest:

Exhibit A: a cherry condom and a cherry cough drop nestled in the corner of the door of the 21.

Exhibit B: a used (we think) love glove hanging off of the ceiling (!) of the 47.

Exhibit C: lonely Jimmy Hat chillin’ across the seat on the T-Third (via plug1).

What steamy scenarios could have possibly led to these pictures? We eagerly await your imaginative prose …

Muni Diaries Live! Under the Influence at the Make-Out Room 10.30.09

Yes, we’re at it again, getting our spoken-word party on at the Make-Out Room on Friday, Oct. 30! If you joined us for our first party, you know that Muni Diaries is best enjoyed with a live audience, under the influence of the fine libations at the Make-Out Room.

Last time we sang along to a Muni sea shanty, re-enacted some cringe-worthy moments on the bus, and manned hand puppets for your entertainment (by the way, who kept that penis puppet?). This time we aim to have just as much spoken-word fun and even throw in some live music inspired by our transit system. And we’ll have more seats and hope for a cooler climate this time around.

This party will be happening on the day before Halloween, so don’t be shy if you want to come dressed in your best duds — extra credit for transit-related costumes!

So, if you’ve got a Muni or BART tale (yep, BART counts this time, too) to share, or music, art, photography, or video inspired by Muni or BART and would like to join the lineup, email us asap.

In Case You Missed Friday’s Penis Puppet Show

We are still on a high from Friday’s Riders with Drinks, where so many of you came out that the Make-Out Room had to call for backup bartenders! We are speechless about the great energy from our performers and audience. We’ve got more Muni stories in the bag, but before we move on with the week, here is a little recap of the hot, hilarious, and awesome night at Riders with Drinks.

If you were there on Friday, you know that we closed the show with some homemade sock puppet re-enactment of the “Penis in public” story. Pictures of the puppets and other hilarity after the jump.

Riders with Drinks: Hella Hot, Literally

Thank you to those of you who made it last night to Riders with Drinks, our first event! We are still in disbelief how many people we managed to pack into the Make-Out Room, raising the temperature in there by at least 20 degrees, I think.

We’ve got photos and videos to share, but for now, check out the post by the Tenderblog about last night’s spoken word hilarity. And for a little weekend fun, here’s a selection of goodies from last night’s Muni haiku troupe:

Stop yelling at me
Or just stop yelling near me
Did I just get flashed?
– Tara Ramroop

On crowded buses,
Always protect purses and —
Oh look, Some vomit!
– Ileana Shevlin

I, Muni Humper
Filled with longing and despair
Are you my angel?
– Chris Lindsey

Riders with Drinks Tonight!


Riders with Drinks, Muni Diaries’ first spoken word party, is tonight! Come hear your fellow riders tell hilarious, cringe-inducing, disgusting, and other worthy stories of our beloved public transit system. We’ve got a haiku troupe, musical performance, and live re-enactments of some of your favorite stories. And did we mention that the Make-Out Room makes a deliciously mean Sidecar?
