This Week in Local Crime: Cops vs. Skinnydippers! / Plus, What to Do Tonight!

The most discussed story on the LJ-World website yesterday was the arrest of two young women and a man (aged 20-22) for daytime skinnydipping in the pool of Melrose Court apartments along Tennessee Street.

Chip: "I hate to speak ill of the local authorities, because they do many fine things, such as chasing the Wakarusa Festival hippies out of town and allowing basketball stars to whip out their dicks with impunity on campus elevators. But arresting two sorostitutes for public nudity just seems to go against all that is good and holy."

Richard: "I walk by my apartment's pool eleven times a day just on the off-chance that such an event might occur."


Obviously, the Cowboy Indian Bear show at the Replay is the place to be tonight (and if you're worried that the band does not include a glockenspiel, relax: they do!). But there are plenty of other opportunities this evening before the band kicks off around midnight. Here are a few we recommend:

Solidarity Revolutionary Library is hosting a poetry-reading which includes "local rebel without a cause and peacock guru Chance Dibben."

Richard: "If he reads a single poem that is NOT about peacocks, I will be severely disappointed."

Meanwhile, down the street, an art collective called The Cobra Gang takes over the Love Garden for an evening of art and music by Fag Cop: "15 Cobras will come together to blow the minds of any Cobra hater." (LJ-World).

Chip: "Most Cobra haters won't be there."

And Be Moved Studio presents "Antheros: An Evening Of Haptic Awakening," an evening of dance and movement during which "Alice Streurwald will lead a community ritual honoring the summer solstice at 7:30" (LJ-World).

Chip: "Only in Larryville can you prominently advertise a pagan ritual. Unless it involves those skinny-dipping sorostitutes, count me out."
