News for the Week of April 22 - 28, 2014

Free Comic Book Day is almost here! The first Saturday in May and the excitement grows! GnR just announced they will be playing at the Division location sometime between 10:30 and 11:30! Yep! GNR! Spokanes own Gorilla and Rabbit! They have also added a third member: Chicken! If you haven't seen them play, this is a golden opportunity for a rock n roll barnyard adventure!

The Northtown location will be hosting their first midnight Magic release this Friday Night! I am sure it will be quite a learning experience. It will be just like Dawn of the Dead except with Jelly Belly pop and nicotine withdrawl as there wont be any way for players to smoke between rounds as the mall will be on lockdown…..

Northtown is also getting some new shelves this week so we can put out even more cool stuff! Its like a freight train of happiness.

The wonderful landlord of our last building has just sent us another request for money! If you have followed this amazing saga from our damaged roof to his conviction last year for $200,000 in insurance fraud you will remember he is quite the guy. This time he is asking for 1.8 million dollars. Our lawyer thought the letter was amusing and he is sending one in reply again. Every time they send me a letter, it costs me another $100 for our attorney to deal with it. I think there is another 5 years that they can keep sending letters until we can make them stop. They keep threatening to sue which our lawyer is encouraging because he said they cant win and they know it but just in case they try he has several counter suits ready. Its annoying all the way around. Oh and last time they said they would forgive it all for just a $20,000 single payment…..

I finally got around to watching Cosmos last week. The ads have looked pretty good the reviews have been mostly positive so we finally remembered this week at just the right time and settled back for a good science adventure. Bleah. It was like watching a movie in 7th grade science complete with or rather inundated with tons of bad animation which supposedly enhanced the story. I think they were trying to make it interesting but if they just told you the story and added a few more of the historical details it would have been fascinating and they would have been able to add another whole segment on something else. Just to make it worse, the host flies around the galaxy in an oddly shaped spaceship which I think is supposed to fill you with awe but mostly just make you go awwww. ...Overall it was really disappointing.

The other science item of the week is why does Diet Orange Crush in a can taste so bad compared to Diet Orange Crush in a two litre bottle? Is supposed to be the same product but the quality is definitely not the same. I know, now you are all going to have to run out and try it but please just take my word for it and save the sadness of having to drink a can of that stuff.
