It's National Poetry Month and Governor Brownback, notorious hater of the arts, has declared this week to be Cowboy Poetry Week in Kansas (presumably cowboy poetry is the one genre of art he can tolerate). At the suggestion of our good buddies over at Geekbauchery, we're looking for someone to compose a bit of "gay cowboy poetry" with the title "Brownback Mountain" to be tweeted around the interwebs (and perhaps read outside the Capitol). Any takers?
Visit the Geekbauchery site here and check out all manner of naughty, geeky, boner-inducing stuff such as Cosplay photos from last week's C2E2 con in Chicago (but DO remember that the site is NSFW).
Readers, this Saturday brings not only the world's largest nachos contest at KU but also...Record Store Day! It's one of the most important scenester holidays.
One of the biggest Record Store Day releases this year is a collaboration album called "Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends" which will feature the Lips joining forces with the likes of Bon Iver and Jim James (we thought it was Yim Yames?).
We tend to love adorable things (such as tiny animals and Transmittens), but baby-talk annoys us, so we're immediately turned off by the "Fwends" in the title. But we'll still kick the shit out of you to grab a copy.
As always, make sure to familiarize yourself with the Love Garden rules before the event:
"As far as first dibs for the exclusive items, we'll be handing out numbers to people just before we open at 10am. The first person in line gets the first number, and so on. Each individual will get to grab 5 items to purchase from the exclusives table. We'll proceed through all the numbers until everyone who was in line BEFORE 10am gets their turn at the exclusives table. After everyone with a number has had their turn, then we'll lift the 5 items per-person limit."
Get in line now and prove you're the most serious record nerd in town!!
