Facebook Group of the Week / Local Collective of the Week: Team Bear Club

Unhappy with the release of the George W. Bush memoir this week, a Facebook group has arisen called "Subversively move George W. Bush's memoir to crime section in book shops," the goal being to "Make bookshops think twice about where they categorize our generation's greatest war criminals." The group currently has 4679 members (Richard: "Make that 4680!") and encourages people to post photos of their subversiveness.

Chip: "I'm going to be conducting some stakeouts at Borders and, if I catch any Eastsiders attempting such a stunt, I'm prepared to make a citizen's arrest."

Here's a photo from the group:

Now that the long-running Neon dance night is no more, it's time for the hippest kids to reclaim the dance party scene, and our Twitter buddies from Team Bear Club are up to the challenge. The Pitch (notice we didn't say offers an excellent profile of the hip-hop collective this week, which includes this sentence:

"With influences that range from J Dilla and Diplo to Soulja Boy and, Canty says, "Topeka grittiness," Team Bear Club's sound is hip-hop as only well-educated Midwesterners could fashion it."

Chip: "They make me grind, AND they make me think."
