Back to Reality

Well, sort of:


Gotta get me some of that.  I think the gravity I keep under the sink in my apartment went bad a few months ago…

Can you believe I live in Brooklyn and I haven’t been to the Superhero Supply Store?!?  How is this possible?  I’ve got to get that taken care of, right quick.

I’d also like to take a moment to send a shout out to Dave Eggers and his crew — even the idea of the existence of the Superhero Supply Store (Park Slope) and the Pirate Supply Store (826 Valencia, San Francisco) consistently brightens my day.  Besides the sheer eccentricity of these shops and the items they stock, both of the stores act as fronts for writing workshops for kids.  How incredibly cool is that?

Do you know about these people?  Dave Eggers and his merry men?  If not — in addition to the Pirate and Superhero stores, of course — you need to check out:

The Believer

Thanks for the reminder, FFFFound.
