Pumpkin Fest 2011

Keene police do the right thing and stop a drunk college kid from smashing pumpkins, and other scenes from videographer Nick Ryder’s visit to Pumpkin Fest 2011, which was packed with people and appeared to be a success:

  • Big Confederate Daddio

    The punks should’ve smashed pumpkins on the dancing noise-makers or on the stage. That cRap and shit will never pass for art, entertainment or music unless you’re black or Hispanic.

  • Keith

    Those cops had very long days so I can understand their frustration. The cursing did seem excessive, though.

    I was one of the official clean-up volunteers and I was slightly annoyed by the folks smashing pumpkins. However, I was able to assist around a dozen folks with improved clean-up techniques without cursing at them or wanting to fine them under my breathe.

  • SMASH PUMPKINS

    How to tell this is *FAKEY-BAKEY*VIDEO*GAMES*:

    First, both cops which star in the "Main Event",

    Rivera, and Maxfield, BOTH look RIGHT INTO the camera…Rivera looks longer and harder, because he's less well trained than Maxfield…

    Both try to be sly with their looking, but neither CAN*BE subtle enough…

    We know that a camera is like an EYE, and, when we see a camera pointed at us, we try to look into it's "eye", just as we would with a person…

    (…if you're out in public, and you get a sense that you are being stared at, and you turn to look, you look into the eyes of whoever is staring at you, not down at their feet…)

    Both cops KNEW Ryder was filming this video, which was the whole point…

    Though few, if anybody, will recognize her, the Director of "Let it Shine 2011",

    who actually organized Punkin'Fest 2011, also makes a non-speaking,

    "background extra" appearance…

    …if KPD had a lot more cops like Rivera, we wouldn't have Pumpkin Fest at all.

    …if KPD had a lot more cops like Maxfield, clean-up would be a much smaller problem…

    Between them, Keene throws a heck-of-a PARTY!…

    Whoever posts as "

    A Critic" also has a sharp eye, and has dissected other videos on here…

    Keene would need 500 cops, to police ALL the drunken punkin'-smashers…

    Part of the reason things go so well and smoothly at Pumpkin Fest ,

    is because of how good KPD IS…

    Even if their cops aren't well trained as *ACTORS*…@grin@…

  • SMASH PUMPKINS

    Sorry to offend your sensibilities, "Keith", but Maxfield's use of "cursing", as you call it, is Cop Textbook Protocol, for gaining the compliance of drunken rowdies…

    Maxfield actually does BETTER, when he DOESN'T know he's on camera…

    ———————————————————————————————————

    "APPEARED"TO BE"" a success"???…WTF???

    See, Ian, when you describe "Pumpkin Fest 2011" so lamely, by saying it "appeared to be" a success, you are revealing the TRUE*POVERTY of your mind-set…

    "Pumpkin Fest 2011", as organized by "Let it Shine 2011", was, like all other

    previous punkin' fest-type events in Keene, a

    *SMASHING*SUCCESS*…

    too bad the singers of the theme song didn't get credited here…

    "Let it Shine, Let it Shine, Let it Shine…

    Let it SHINE, until it becomes

    The SHINING…

    (Thanks, Jack…)

    @Big confederate dad;

    Why dont you swallow some arsenic! Racist crapmouth!

    Well, the OBVIOUS solution to drunken kids from the state college is to privatize the college!

  • Ghost Dancer

    We're working on privatizing, Julia, we're working on it…Maybe get rid of those goddamn commies, and socialists, too…

    …and chain-gangs for the clean-up crew, for the pumpkin smashers…

    …some punk-ass college kid comes to Keene to party, and ends up Sunday AM chained to a couple dozen other drunken rowdies, and they would be real compliant real quick…
