Still, we believe you'll enjoy today's features.
First off, Lawrence.com has a remarkable slideshow up on their site featuring pictures from the recent Kickball All-Star game. Now Richard has taken some heat in the past for his suggestions that the "sport" may not necessarily require magnificent displays of athleticism, but maybe he's been wrong all along (click to enlarge for the full effect!)
Obviously, this gal is an athlete! (and be sure to note her "Punk Fucking Rock" t-shirt. Get it? PBR!).
The boys love to check in with Style Scout each week and are rarely disappointed. Profiled this week is Katie Re.se, a 28 year old local graphic designer who lists her fashion influences as "1970s kitsch, anime, Sailor Moon, Blythe dolls and big 1970s country hair." Katie describes her look as "Country lolita with a little bit of Neil Young." Have a look:
Chip: "She's far too old to be a 'nymphet' but I suppose I'd still let her call me Humbert Humbert, if that's her thing. She claims to like "overalls with no shirt underneath on the right person," so I've got that going for me, since that's what I usually wear in Forttt Scottt."
Richard: "She has a tattoo of a unicorn on her arm, which I've learned is often a sign that a girl is a little weird."
Portland-based buzz band The Builders and the Butchers head back to Larryville tonight for a rare early Thursday show at the Replay and Richard is expected to be reporting live from the scene. One writer describe them as follows:
"...a B&B live show resembles something of a fun and in-your-face baroque folk marching band, while they are notorious for enlisting friends and random people in the crowd to play extra shakers, tambourines, washboards, and little drums. Regularly, you’ll find front man, Ryan Sollee, stomping around the stage, earnestly singing, sometimes yelling, and occasionally blowing on an old bullhorn – assumably more for aesthetics than sound."
Richard: "I hope I get to play some little drums!"
