It's the cutest little thing! I mean, the strip.

The Baltimore Flickr Group is having a show at Holy Frijoles starting November 15th through the holidays! Reception on November 22nd, 7-9pm.
The BFG is a collection of Baltimore based photographs by pro and amateur photographers, most of who live in MD.
See Baby Doll printed and stuck on a wall instead of online! See the awkward mingling of people who've never met in Real Life before but have had conversations on the "computer"! What's your Baltimore about? Inner Harbor, crabs, transvestites? It's all here.

It's a busy Halloween week!
Here on the Avenue, we have our annual Halloween festivities this Saturday, 29th. Trick or treating up and down the street for the kids is from 5-6pm. Costume contests start at 6:30 in front of Oh! Said Rose (for more info: 410-235-5170).
Among many other events around town, the Charm City Roller Girls are having a Bruiser's Ball at the Ottobar on the 30th.
Speaking of balls...did you know that 80% of the men in Baltimore* shave their balls**? I don't know about you, but I feel enlightened.
*Source - my poll at Frazier's last night where I yelled at guys, "Hey, do you shave your balls?"
**If you ask this question, make sure that you are prepared for a very long discussion of other related topics and stories. Especially from Gene.
UPDATE: Ok, let's be more inclusive about this but possibly less scientific and take this poll.

Still, funny guys. You should check out their cover of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" if you don't know what they're about.
Musicians are a difficult lot to work with.
Now writers, they're alright.
Sure the I'm-a-piece-of-shit-that-the-world-revolves-around persona gets tiresome...but they're a hell of a lot easier to work with than artists.
But what about artists with books? Or movie people? Or video gamers? Or chefs?
Hey, those are our November events!

Ah, good ol' cable access is still cranking some good shows out. But now, it's for the kids.
We've got the first couple of DVDs of the DC kids show "Pancake Mountain" in stock. It's educational and kind of scary. Henry Rollins is always kind of scary. But Arcade Fire is so cute (but you can tell the kids were still kind of scared).
