Book sales around town(hack) [Jan. 11th, 2007|03:52 pm]

Dear nerds who forgot they friended this community,

Caveat Emptor is having an overflow sale at Vintage Phoenix (on 6th St. around the corner from CE), so if you wanted to pick up the entire Tekwar series for under $5, you can.
And then there's the friends of the library clearance sale next week (I'm pretty sure.  The FOL site is not so updated).

Speaking of the MCP library (and the actual reason I wanted to post, and also the most townhack-y), who doesn't want to go out one night and wrap the stone bears out front in foil so they're better Panserbjørn?  Whoever you are (if you exist), you suck.

Chalk one up for Sidewalk Chalk [Sep. 1st, 2006|10:29 pm]
Townhacking Bloomington

Ok this one goes out to all those who spend thier treks across campus forced to look at gaudy, unoriginal chalk advertisements littered across the pavement. We must band together and form a posse to counter act the aesthetic pollution across campus with art and messages that people will actually enjoy seeing.

I'm requesting the collaboration of all creative types. Graphic artists, artists, armchair t-shirt designers, poets, prosets, polymaths, etc. Are you neither of those? Have a friend who is? Tell them! At the very least you can hold flashlights or man the headlights.

I know it sounds like a silly project at first glance, but imagine how awesome it'll be just to be part of something creative that people may very well talk about. Please, join me in the ranks of the:

"Chalk Shockers" -working title.

Totally rock balls band names [Aug. 21st, 2006|06:41 pm]

It's well known that Bloomington has a bunch of terrible bands with puns in their names, but they aren't doing enough.  Many awesome names for terrible bands are going without homes, and so I ask you, people who want to make bloomington more awesome, to consider giving homes to these awesome band names:
  • Baron Reginald VonPanzerkiefer and His Fun-Time Speed Metal Trio (acoustic metal)
  • Coronary Trombonesis (shitty ska)
  • Galboss Alarm Clock (nerdcore psychedelica)  (Bonus nerd points if you get both references there)
  • Herman Wouk's Head (prog-rock) (It should be noted for those of you who haven't felt the need to cry today that the Wikipedia entries for Herman's Head and Herman Wouk are the same length)
  • Bizarre Roland (I don't know what genre of music they enjoy, but I bet it's awesome, and they all have sinister facial hair, even the chick who plays bass)

We are a no-kill awesome band name shelter, so if you have an abandoned awesome band name, leave it in the comments, and we'll find it a good home.

Nerdflash: D&D that doesn't suck. [Jul. 26th, 2006|12:43 pm]

I know what you want to do.

That's right, you want to spend one evening a week smashing orcs, rescuing damsels and other acts of daring-do.

You want to see entire villages full of dirty hippies crushed under a relentless wave of shambling undead.

You want to kill and cause general havoc with near total impunity, cuz... you know... you're a hero.

You want a game of D&D that doesn't suck.

Interested? Reply and tell me which movie is less awesome: Dragonslayer or Excalaber.
Not Interested? Reply and tell me "F.U. Pillowpants".

I know that this isn't technically townhacking, but I figure every game of D&D will do it's part.

Big fat wireless bags of fun. [Jul. 13th, 2006|11:34 am]

Have a laptop or DS? Should we congregate at a hotspot and geek out over wifi rather than actually talk to one another? Am I the only one who thinks that this might be totally awesome?
