Apologies

Published by under Misc.

*Update* It seems better but it’s still a little sluggish.  The site is suuuper slow right now.  The hoster said someone (not us) on the server is running something that is chewing up bandwidth and they’re working on figuring out who and what that is.  Hopefully it will be back to its speedy self in a […]

It appears that I wear women’s glasses.

Published by under Subby Love

I just made an amusing discovery whilst browsing the Ray-Ban website: The new glasses for which I continue to receive compliments are, in fact, a women’s model. I wonder if Chuck Klosterman’s are, too.

It’s Felt a Little Like Spinal Tap Lately

Or maybe the Red Hot Chili Peppers.  There haven’t actually been any deaths. We keep losing our fourth, admittedly to things we couldn’t possibly compete with.  Like, oh, a new baby, a job in India, an impossible 21 hr school load… So we are welcoming our newest team member–Michael.  He’s a long-time customer who may […]

Spencer Dew here Wed (Tomorrow)

Published by under Events

Here’s what the Post-Dispatch had to say: In “Songs of Insurgency,” the characters are often nasty, the themes brutish and the pieces short.

One More Shelf Available

Published by under Misc.

All gone.  Kaveh picked the last one up, already. It is 7.5 inches deep x 93.5 inches tall by 48 inches wide. It is made of real wood, stained, with unstained fiberboard backing, with 6 shelves.  It could be evenly stained or easily painted.  It has a lot of dings.   $50 cash.

But somehow the sexy, testosterone-ramping intros […]
