The Good Ol’ Days

Published by under Misc.

I knew my crush on Mike Scott was well-founded. Before the days of YouTube, though, there was a lot of imagination at work. Bless you, YouTube. (J-Fresh, ya with me?) —Kelly, who owes it all to Jenni‘s waltzing into my dormroom our freshman year in college with a “You have to hear this!” UPDATE: Waaa? […]

The Loop as Anytown

Published by under Lou Life,News

If certain developers in the area have their way, the Loop’s going to look just like a south county strip mall or a west county highway entrance ramp development. I was emailed a notice for a public hearing to consider conditional use permits to put a Noodles & Co and a Chipotle Mexican Grill into […]

Mega Deal

Published by under Misc.

    I’m not going to say that Megabus is any cleaner than Greyhound, a service I’ve had the unfortunate pleasure of using on occasion because Amtrak just can’t seem to get it together, but the ticket prices are great and the travel times tend to be better than anything else around. I used Megabus […]

Blech, inventory

Published by under Misc.

We’ll be closed part or all of this Sunday, Feb 25 for inventory. We’ve never had to do such a big production before so we’re not sure how long it will take, hence the “part or all” of above. Anyhoo, we’re currently accepting donations for the coffee fund. –Kelly

It’s My Year

Published by under Misc.

Born in 1971 (or 1959, 1983, 1995)? The Year of the Pig (Or Boar–but I like Pig) Pig personality traits Stubbornly optimistic, the Pig will not tolerate those with well-meaning advice on how to be a Pig, but since they dislike quarreling and discord their anger usually cools quickly. Sometimes looked upon as a snob, […]

Nothing Says Love Like Banksy Spraypainting sh** all over your wall. Or putting a subversive painting in your gallery. Or replacing your Paris Hilton CD with remixes by Danger Mouse. He’s not above putting out an art book though! (Available at Subterranean for all you last minute VD shoppers.) –Jay Sin

Candy is dandy; liquor is quicker

Published by under Misc.

For those of you who find Valentine’s Day to be just another way that the man brainwashes us with corporate drivel and sloganeering, might I suggest two things? First, and best, stop by the package store and pick up a fifth, then stop by your favorite bookstore (cough, ahem) and pick up a good book. […]

There’s A Riot Going On

Published by under Bestsellers,Full of ideas,News

Are Jeremy, Kelly, Jenni, and I going to dress up as Snape, Dumbledore, Hermione, and Hagrid for it? No. But if you want a cool 20% off the next and last Harry Potter book, while also avoiding the Muggle Thuggles and Quidditch hooligans, Subterranean is the place to preorder your copy of Harry Potter and […]

Good Grief

Published by under Current Read,Subby Love

I was a little apprehensive when I found out Best American was going to include a comics line in its ever-growing series of year’s end anthological lovefests. How could one pick from all that’s out there? Well, in my opinion, Harvey Pekar and Anne Elizabeth Moore did a banner job putting together a diverse group […]

In the New

Published by under Current Read,Full of ideas,News

Yikes! The new books are coming, the new books are coming! Already here… Mind Expansion: Jonathan Spence’s biography, Mao Zedong. Originally part of the “Penguin Lives” series, this particular volume was popular enough to make the jump to paperback. Also, recently featured on TTBOOK, climber/Buddhist scholar Ian Baker’s attempt to find the hidden gateway to […]
