Badass St. Louis

I like to see St. Louis’ return to being the “Most Dangerous U.S. City” as a badge of honor. As in, don’t mess with us, Detroit. We can whip your decentralized population numbers any day. Or, you think you’re economically depressed, Flint? Check out this loss of industrial jobs, suckas. But seriously, as a city […]

Needed: Loving Home for a Good Kidd

Published by under Current Read,Subby Love

We have this big, beautiful book of the work of Chip Kidd here at the bookstore, and for some mysterious reason (or due to some evil consipracy), it’s sat on the shelf for almost a year now. For those of you who don’t recognize Chip’s name, I’m sure you’d recognize his work anywhere. He’s the […]

Pretty Pictures, Pretty Words

Published by under Current Read

I think all of us here are fans of Penguin’s “Graphic Classics” series. Basically, Penguin is republishing some of their classic titles with brand new covers designed by well-known graphic novelists and comix artists, including Candide with art by Chris Ware, a disturbing cover for The Jungle by Charles Burns, and the master Frank Miller […]

Another Reason Why October is Awesome

Published by under Subby Love

I heard on the radio yesterday that October is “Adopt a Shelter Pet” month. I’m all for that. Here’s a photo of three of the Subterranean mascots (there’s about 9–maybe 10–total). One’s from a shelter in far north Missouri, one’s from the city pound, and one’s from county pound. Stray Rescue also has amazing animals. […]

Chihuligans

Published by under Subby Love

While you might have to fight the cold and drunk yuppies to see it, Glass in the Garden is definitely, definitely worth your time–especially if you go on one of the Chihuly Nights. The exhibit has been extended through the end of the year, so there’s really no excuse (other than watching the rest of […]

1, 2, 3 Miscellany

1. Adventures in backyard living. There has been a fox pair living in Francis Park now for awhile. My wife and I have spied them in the park itself, but we were particularly pleased when recently one of them made its way into our backyard several blocks away. We tried to sit still as possible […]

Really, They’re *Very* Soft

Published by under Sidelines

Teddy Scares are quite gruesome… until you pick them up. They are some sort of weird hybrid creature with the softness and squishiness of a real stuffed bear, but also, a scalp ripped open, or a scar reaching down the length of the face. You suddenly realize that they are so much more than just […]

Whew

Published by under Crafty,News

It’s been a little quiet blogger-wise around here lately because we have some HUGE projects in the works. Aside from the giant 40% off sale, we’re in the process of moving the horribly cluttered and distracting east loft “office” into an apartment upstairs for a more proper work space. The more exciting part of that […]
