How'd he get blood all over that banana?
Update: In the catalog now!
In Style, this month, in the section called "Where the Pros Shop on the Web, " Andy Spade lists us as a place to shop for dudes, pointing out that you can get Heavy Metal Parking Lot here.
We used to carry it exclusively but now you can even get it on Amazon. But whatever.
Amazon isn't having a whole night based on it this Saturday, Nov 4th, at the Ottobar. We'll be showing the film, Alan Hunter, one of the original MTV VJs, will give us his annual Hate the 80s Night video greeting and Keyboard Man hosts as a bunch of bands play all metal 80s!
Starts at 9pm!!

Hodgman was in town last night at UB. Tonight we'll have a slew of McSweeney's authors over at Pop.
Wednesday is our Reading Club meeting at Pop.
Thursday is Lord Whimsy and Dame Darcy.
Then it's Halloween. And we'll be giving out free comics to the kids who'll be trick or treating on the Avenue this Saturday! That's between 5-6pm.
I'm going to be a unicorn! Oh wait, that's not literary.
At our Grand Opening for Pop tomorrow night, which starts at 8pm, you can meet Brian Ralph, who'll be signing copies of his new book Daybreak. Also, you can hobnob with a lot of the artists and overheardsters (just made that up!) who contributed to our new book, I Keee You!!, and...
If you buy anything tomorrow, from the moment we open at 11am until 10pm, you'll be put into a drawing to win a WHOLE SET of Rose Camille Garcia Vinyl Figures. That's right, all four. Drawing will be around 10pm. You must be present to win.
So come on by! It's a party. There's drinks and stuff.
Too little too late is a laughable understatement. What you see here are 38 copies of our new book.
The title is too apt for how we feel about this whole book printing fiasco.
BUT they ARE here, and the rest should be here by our book party this Friday.
There are far worse printing disasters than just missing one of the biggest East Coast Small Press events. And we heard quite a few stories this past weekend, which was still fun even though we didn't have our new book and Flake flaked.
When Atomic Books Office Manager, Margaret Sabo, 27, came in to work this morning, the last thing she expected was to see her building poorly tagged.
"It's just so badly done it's embarrassing," she scoffed. "He didn't even use Krylon. He left his can of Rustoleum SATIN. I use that on my lawn furniture."
Joseph Benson Ray IV, 38, co-owner of Atomic Books and also a cultural studies professor at Towson University remains baffled. "I just don't understand the style or the message. He's no Banksy."
Rachel Whang, 37, also a co-owner, says, "Call me when we have knittas."
The city is scheduled to remove the tag in one week.
