Is It Apocalypse or Is It Utopia? (This Week in Local Art) / Also, The Boys' Holiday Gift Guide, Vol. II / Plus, LC's Pick of the Day!

The Lawrence Percolator, a new gallery nestled in the alley behind the Arts Center, has been variously described as "the scariest place in town to see art" (Chip) and "an already indispensable addition to the cultural landscape" (Richard). The gallery's current show is titled "Signs of a New Apocalypse or Glimmers of a DIY Utopia" (the piece on the flier, by artist Dave Loewenstein, is titled "wind, exotica, refinery, leash."

Chip: "I feel like this piece has something important to say, but so far all I know is that the banana symbolizes a penis."


Like all real men, the boys enjoying hunting and eating animals, and a new product soon to hit the market aims to make those things easier. It's called "Season Shot," and it's an ammunition that injects a bird with your choice of delicious seasoning upon impact. It's catchphrase: "shoots, kills, seasons."

Here's the description from the website: "Season Shot is made of tightly packed seasoning bound by a fully biodegradable food product. The seasoning is actually injected into the bird on impact seasoning the meat from the inside out. When the bird is cooked the seasoning pellets melt into the meat spreading the flavor to the entire bird. Forget worrying about shot breaking your teeth and start wondering about which flavor shot to use!" (

Richard: "This is great, but I soon hope for a product that will actually fully cook an animal upon impact, so I can shoot a deer and eat it right there in the forest like a caveman!"


The nationally televised prime-time Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is becoming a holiday tradition for America, a time for families to gather around and watch hot women in their underwear. It's on CBS tonight at 9:00 and here's a shot of one of tonight's ensembles.

Richard: "This look seeks to shatter the myth that a business woman can't also be warm and playful. My favorite part is the panties."

Chip: "What do her panties mean?"
