LoveFest. Love Parade. LovEvolution. Whatever you call it, prepared to be disappointed, because it’s not happening this year. Sorry to be so glum in the first paragraph — we’re pretty bummed out, ourselves, and are choosing to use this post as our sorrow-filled outlet.

You can start putting away that gold body glitter + pink tutu + lime green bikini top outfit you’ve been planning—save it for gay pride, maybe—and feel free to throw a strongly-worded email to the powers that be in SF.

Apparently, the reason for our lack of LoveFest is that no one could figure out where in San Francisco to hold the parade and subsequent dance party. So they just up and canceled the whole shebang.

With any luck, and maybe some … uh, planning, the festivities will return by next year. So hold on to that lime green bikini top, but maybe not your breath.

What do Steve Martin, MC Hammer and bluegrass have in common? If you don’t know the answer to that question then you must have stayed at home watching Hulu this weekend. [SF Gate]

Have you ever slept in the common room because you were sexiled or had to resort to an uncomfortable cough to alert your roommates that their upper bunk dry hump session isn’t as subtle as they think? Students at Tufts apparently haven’t. [The Paper Trail]

If you decided bluegrass or the library (yawn) was a better way to spend your weekend than donning your tutu and raving to techno, don’t worry, here are some pictures. It’s almost like being there: minus the music, the people and the fun. Yeah, it’s really nothing like being there. [San Francisco Citizen]
