On July 20, Paper Wasp, with the support of Big Shiny Robot and Blonde Grizzly, will host a “Saturday Morning Cartoons” art show. A true creative community collaboration, this group show originated from conversation between Magen Mitchell of Paper Wasp and Derek Hunter, both participating artists. Blonde Grizzly had the space and Big Shiny Robot loved the idea and offered to sponsor. Mitchell’s husband and Paper Wasp co-founder, Nick Burke, jumped in to help facilitate and curate.
Dear Dickheads, I have been downhill skating since high school and I’m curious why SLUG chooses to shun this scene from the pages of the mag.

It’s that time of year when beer fests and beer drinking have officially taxed my palate.

This month we have reviews of Diablo III and Trials Evolution.
