Osceola, Missouri Has Had Just About Enough of Us Uppity Jayhawks! / A Few Scenester Picks

It seems that the Osceola City Fathers have drafted a resolution urging KU to change its Jayhawk mascot, decrying “the celebration of this murderous gang of terrorists by an institution of ‘higher education’ in such a brazen and malicious manner.”

You can read the full article in the Columbia Daily Tribune here .

Our favorite bit:

"...the resolution calls on Missourians to stop spelling Kansas or KU with a capital letter, as “neither is a proper name or a proper place.”

“I don’t expect them to do anything,” Rick Reed of Osceola, who brought the resolution to the aldermen, said of KU. “They are so arrogant and uppity."

Chip: "The next time I stop at Osceola Cheese Company you can bet I'll be dressed in a full-on Big Jay suit!"

In other Big Jay news, did you see this photo of him controversially riding down Jayhawk Boulevard on top of a car. KU Athletics denies knowledge of these shenanigans.


So which show are you going to choose this weekend to indulge in some scenester nostalgia? Murderbot at Granada tonight? The Only Children at Jackpot on Saturday?

Or perhaps you'll skip the nostalgia and just enjoy an evening of pure debauchery at the Replay late tonight with Labretta Suede (she gives Chip a boner), the Spook Lights, and Them Damned Young Livers.

As for us, we'll enjoy the punk/bluegrass of Filthy Still at the Replay matinee this evening. Here's what we discovered in our research. Their washboard has "Sleazy D" written on it and they list a band called Hick'ry Hawkins and the Panty Sniffers as a primary influence. They've already earned our three bucks!

A friend forwarded the Jayhawk article to me. That led to a discussion of school mascots (he went to Swarthmore, so doesn't have much to say about it). The conclusion was that Herbie Husker now looks like Rick Perry.
