Speaking of Noir

Do you know what geniuses Scott Phillips and Jed Ayres are?  Seriously.   We’ve done, um, 7(?)  Noir@Bar.  8?  And they always bring in someone who isn’t yet published who just blows the crowd away.  In kind of a jaw-dropping what-the-hell-was-that I-don’t-know-but-I-liked-it sort of way. Frank Bill is one of those folks who, shortly after his Noir… appearance, […]

I LOVED The Boxcar Children (not the series, though, the original)

Published by under Full of ideas,Subby Love

Punk Rock Science

Published by under News,Subculture

Did you know Greg Graffin has a PhD from Cornell?  And that he teaches evolution at UCLA?  (Or that Paul Verhoeven is a biblical scholar?)  I am always impressed (and a bit surprised, admittedly) when artists also excel in scholarly pursuits.  I think it’s all very Renaissancean and, well, just cool. Here’s a trailer for […]

I Can Hardly Contain My Excitement

Published by under Events,Lou Life

Excellent review in the Post-Dispatch. Meet him this Saturday at The Royale, 5:30pm.  Get your book signed.  Subterranean & PuddnHead will have plenty of copies on hand and between us I think we have all 3 colors fairly well represented.
