The area news recently reported:
ROMEO, Mich. — A local high school football game turned violent after the marching band became a target of rocks and paint.
One student was struck by a rock and several band uniforms were damaged by red face paint.The game, which took place at Powell Junior High on Friday night, was played between Romeo High School and Macomb Dakota.
“We are not sure what they were using to throw (at the band members),” Capt. John Roberts said. “Apparently, from what we gather, no one saw who threw the items but the matter remains under investigation.” No one was seriously injured.
Seriously?! Throwing stuff at the friggin’ marching band? How much weaker can you get?

The folks at Satellite News have come up with a brilliant product: MST3K quote shirts. They’re quite affordable and there are a ton of great quotes to choose from. The one pictured above is my favorite (it’s always been one of my favorite MST3K quotes of all time), but I also dig this one. I’d like to see them add “Hope you slept well, ’cause it’s time to die!” and “I wanted to play hopscotch with the impenetrable mystery of existence, but he stepped in a wormhole and had to go in early.”

I’m not participating this year (gotta get back in the swing of posting about books) but I’ll be watching eagerly to see what gets nominated in each category, and which bloggers are participating as panelists and as judges. Nominations open October 1st, so now’s the time to think about your faves.
Totally diggin’ this Librarian Anarchy t-shirt. (I just wish it came in colors that aren’t brown.)
