S'funny, I don't remember ordering the pain on tap last night. But there may be many parts of the evening I don't remember. . .
Best thing about the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban trailer is, of course, the first thing: Alan Rickman. There needs to be a Severus Snape: Potions Instructor movie. Or tv series. Or something.
Not sure why I hadn't heard of Other Magazine until today, when I noticed a link at Bad Subjects. It's one of those dead-tree thingees, although some gods-I-hate-the-word "content" from the first two issues is up on the site. You can snag the current issue at Tower Records for $4 (instead of $5), or could a few weeks back, at any rate. Contributors include The Ubiquitous Hanne Blank (see also The Chicklit Challenge at Alternet [but from the current Utne], something else I stumbled on earlier while trying to
sober wake up), Nalo Hopkinson, Cecilia Tan and America's Other Other Sweetheart Annalee Newitz. And, as they say, many, many more.
Well, I'm sure they're a nice band.
Considered driving up to Minneapolis tomorrow, realized that the current price of petrol makes this economically unfeasable at this juncture, and will instead probably be making the much shorter jaunt to beautiful Shampoo-Banana. Just to see if the place gives me flashbacks, or causes me to flee screaming. Best to avoid the parking lot where my old apartment building used to be to prevent the former, and stay the hell away from Kam's and C.O. Daniels to prevent the latter. Not so much of a problem, managed to not go into either of the hellholes during me undergrad years, and see no reason to start now. Besides, the idea of drinking holds no appeal whatsoever at the moment.
