Alert Freaks & Geeks, it is time to don the lingerie and high heels. Ladies, it is important for you to dig out something to wear too! A sign of spring, UW Eau Claire's annual screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show is coming up at midnight, February 15th on the UW campus. Last year the Abbotts were the sole representatives from Chippewa Falls Premier Lunch Club and will be attending again this year. If you are in the mood to take your inner freak out in public, the RHPS is the perfect place. Contact the Abbotts for car pool possibilities.
From deep, deep, deep in the video archives. The Freaks and Geeks spring talent show, 2007. Held at the Dane residence. We are searching for a venue for the 2008 show. Perhaps the Minneapolis Metrodome is available?
I have to admit. When I walked into the door of the Snout and heard strains of the Tempations, My Girl, I nearly spun on my heel and walked back out. My expectations had not been high. A band, named The Love Buzzards, does not inspire confidence there was going to be great music to come.
Herein reside seventeen stories (and one poem) written by Peace Corps Volunteers (one of which is Joanna Dane) from across the generations and across the planet. Such writing often brings expectations for a certain type of book (heartwarming, uplifting, nice). Many books give you that experience. And we like those books. They are good books. The world needs those books. This is not that book. Americans Do Their Business Abroad is a collection of stories a little too goofy, a little too personal (and maybe a little too gross) to belong anywhere else. Latrines. Goat eyeballs. Pickpockets. Whimsy. Wisdom. And arson in the name of hygiene. Enjoy.
