Some of the cooler items bouncing around the blogosphere this week included this gallery of old Sideshow Banners, the Modern Ruins photo site, and, my personal favorite, a retro kitcsh site call Tack-o-Rama full of goodies from yesteryear.
I have been taken to task (and rightly so) by an anonymous reader for not doing enough music entries. With that in mind I am pleased to tell you that tours have recently been announced for Bill Bruford's Earthworks, guitar maestro Mike Keneally, and the unstoppable Killing Joke. The big news, though, is the announcement that the mighty Pixies are reuniting for a tour next year. So profound is this turn of events that even the ever-irrelevant MTV posted a story about it.
I wouldn't mind a map of Lidsville, either. Clearly I need help.
I'm also looking for reports from readers in the real cities of Seattle, Vegas, or New York who may have visited a Sci Fi Cafe location. Was it halfway decent, or just sad? What were some of the theme menu-items? What do the wait staff wear?
Any number of lists of recognizeddays for this month include a September 25 entry for National Comic Book Day. What is this? Does the industry do anything? Perhaps mature reader comics mailed to congressmen and federal judges? I am looking for more info.
