To Combine Atoms in Such a Way

robfranks:

I saw John Hodgman at The Bottletree Cafe in Birmingham Sunday night. His performance was hypnotic and funny, and slightly subversive. And not a cocky, “Man, this art project is gonna CHANGE things” subversive. But he did manage to produce a charge that left me lighter, more alive.

Hodgman began…

There are spoilers here, and obviously we can’t have Jason Sims with us everywhere, but: I am grateful for the kind words and getting-it-ness of this person’s experience with my show.

THE WEDDING OF THE YEAR

Before you leave the Ignatz Awards ceremony, we’ve got something extra special lined up. The wonderous and talented, Simon Hanselmann, a special guests of SPX 2014, will be getting married

So before you PROM it out like Kevin Bacon in Footloose, take a few minutes with us to celebrate the most blessed union since…

Well,  You know.

So…are you implying that Jake the Snake and The Undertaker are going to crash PROM and we should all be on the lookout for a giant snake?

Because I’m down for that.

dcwomenkickingass:

DC Comics has been using variant covers to drive sales for the past few months so we’ve had Bombshell covers, Mike Allred variants, and even selfie covers.

BEHOLD - THE SPX 2014 FOOD MAP!

One of the super bogus raps on the “new” SPX location - hey, we’ve been at the new place for almost ten years, guys - is that it lacks the plentiful and tasty food options of the old downtown Bethesda joint.

DON’T YOU BELIEVE IT

I’m here to put lie to those claims. And I’ve brought a visual aid. Gigantic thanks go to yaoxiaoart for creating this inaugural SPX food map.

We reached deep into the SPX social media empire to get feedback on your favorite spots in the SPX hood. You’ll find your favorites in these incredible 
illustrations.

HAVE AN APPETITE FOR MORE?

If you’re still not satisfied, the exhaustive SPX GOOD EATS Google Map curated by rmrhodes is your huckleberry, and the thing that got us rolling down this road a few years back.

So eat hearty friends and keep your strength up! 

You’re going to need it THIS WEEKEND at SPX!
