In this new feature at the LC, we shine a light on various local personalities and businesses that are now "Twittering." First off, is Love Garden Records, and their account is an excellent way to stay on top of hip new records as well as find out the latest antics of the playful and hilarious "magical" Love Garden kitties! The site also offers daily passwords ("Derby Pie") that customers can use for special discounts. Here's a sample entry, and make sure to go to http://twitter.com/lovegardensound and become a "follower":
"Now playin' Black Moth Super Rainbow "Don't you Want to be in a Cult b/w Feel the Drip" 12". It's rad- if you are into that sort of thing!"
Chip: "I'm not into that sort of thing, but I hope to discover that Quinton's has a Twitter account in which various waitresses post 140 character updates about (and possibly during) their sexual encounters."
Richard: "I'll buy a PBR for the person who sends the best imitation of a Quinton's-waitress Twitter message to the talkback section."
In the LC "photo of the week," we have captured an alarming new trend in Larryville. Here we see one of the city's most famous hippies, the tall dude who flashes the peace signs along 9th Street, being hassled by "the Man" at yesterday's Art in the Park festival. First the hippies' Wakurasa Festival was chased away and now they're not even free to stroll in the park without police interference. What's next? Will the cops turn a hose on the Free State patio?
