Gone fishin'

Busy today. Here are some of the stories the boys in the newsroom are feverishly putting together:

  • True-life tales of a shoebox filled with the assorted memorabilia of a certain Lois Howorth of the Anna Head School for Girls in Berkeley, CA, around the early 1900s.
  • An obscene poem about Esteban Loiza.
  • A paean to "Red Bumb Ball," a collection of late '60s rocksteady from Pressure Sounds.
  • Art Brut: are your children safe?
  • A list of ideas for surefire hits in the execrable market for point-of-purchase books.
  • A story about a cute baby giraffe and his adventures in the land of taffy.
  • Hootenanny v. jamboree: history renders its verdict. And the results may surprise you.
