Oh yeah, and the Hoover Dam. And California. And...

No, I enjoyed you. And I really, really liked The Freemont Street Experience, which was your idea. So rock.

Not really, no. I thought you were just along for the ride.

Besides, it would be fun to hang out in TT's room and talk about him like he wasn't even there!!

Yeah, K, Shiney already told me to get a room today. These boys and their toys.

I would like to review the rooms here at ST and then lavish praise and/or criticism on them.

As long as all bodily fluids are properly disposed of when I get home, feel free to use my room.

And don't tell me about it.

Jesus. I walk in...to this. And what's this on the floor? It's sticky! Oh, bookgasm! Sweet!

Ah, yes...that was a lame joke. Haha.

Anywho, now that the boys had a chance to take a cold shower, we have another review! GUD pimps out ST, Weird Tales, and Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens for Support Our 'Zines Day. Pick up a copy of GUD. They have some exceptional stuff.
This link rocks!

Found this online, here: http://www.librarything.com/topic/79094#1747744

13) Shock Totem 1: Curious Tales of the Macabre and Twisted - Kenneth E. Wood, ed.

This is the first issue of Shock Totem, a soon-to-be-regularly-published short story digest. It's bound rather well, with excellent artwork, and won't look out of place sitting on my bookshelf (which is why I'm counting it as a book).

The issue contains a number of short stories and interviews; the stories range from dark fantasy to horror, and naturally the quality of the stories varies with each piece. I'm not a big fan of horror, but fortunately the tales in this issue weren't gory or disturbing in the way that would cause me to toss the book aside.

Naturally, I enjoyed the dark fantasy pieces the most, but on the whole the issue was worth the read -- interviews aside, as I found they dragged a bit. But, those are easily skimmed over.

I suspect I'll purchase the next issue when it comes out, but I might wait for another holiday sale (which is why I got this one) as it's fairly pricey (I'm guessing because the binding is high quality).

Rating: Some stories were 3.5/5, some were 2/5...
Challenge: 75 Books; 1010 - "Fantasy Authors"
Source: Came to me in the mail last week
I think that's our worst review yet. Sad And priced at just $5.99, I think we're pretty durn cheap, actually.

Pricey? I wonder what other magazines he's been buying.

Ohh well, if that's the worst review we get, we should be very pleased.
