Scary Story reading tonight!

Now that we've all had our fill of Thanksgiving pierogi, brave the cold weather and join us at 8 pm for a free evening of scary stories, hosted by our visiting writer Jamie, who's only in town for another few days. Jamie will read from recent original work. Artnoose will read from the HP Lovecraft story "Call of Cthulhu" and our uphill neighbor Dave will come with something to read as well. Bring a scary story if you would like, or just come to enjoy the ambiance. Oh, and Artnoose is making a Cthulhu cake, so come if for nothing else than to see the Old One in sweet delicious cake form.

As a side note, the last day of Artnoose's Birthday Week is today, so there's going to be a store from 5-8 pm in the front house with back issues of Ker-bloom!, prints, books and zines from the distro, original art, and last-minute holiday cards.

Artnoose's Birthday Week

Artnoose's birthday week started with a handful of friends ghost riding the whip. Here's a video, set to a song from a CD that Artnoose bought for $5 from a local rapper at the supermarket down the block.

Other birthday week events include knot tying, letter writing, food, cake, and zines.

November Cool-Off reportback

Our first ever Cool-Off was a success. That is to say, people showed up, the wood stove created a warm atmosphere, and all the cupcakes got eaten.

There were readings, chili necklaces, videos, technological experiments, and a comic book slideshow. The Queer Negation Tour folks who have been visiting this weekend ended up winning, and will be taking half the door money and the golden torso trophy with them on their way to points elsewhere.

This event will be happening every month, on the second Saturday. Start doing cool stuff now so that you can present it on December 11!

The first Cool Off is this Saturday at 7pm. Come and share what cool stuff you did this month, or just come and see what everyone else did.
2-4 dolla donations at the door. Half the door money goes to the coolest person there. Will it be you?

Call for readers! Halloween isn't over yet!

Our new visiting writer Jamie came in from colder northern climates and is bringing a lot of enthusiasm into the house. Not that we're short on enthusiasm, mind you. There's a burst of activity these days before it gets all snowy. Building, painting, soldering, cleaning, cooking, putting the garden to bed for the winter.

At any rate, at the end of the month, we're hosting an evening of scary stories, featuring our visiting writer. Any local writers who want to read short selections of their spooky works should get in touch.
