Hugs, not Uggs

Seriously, if I see one more girl in leggings and Ugg boots on campus I may implode. This appears to be a trend, and it needs to stop now.

Rather than merely whining about campus fashions, let's spend a moment reviewing some ladies who do have their acts together:

Jenny Owen Youngs - Voice on Tape
Georgie James - Cake Parade
Simone White - The Beep Beep Song
Eilen Jewell - How Long
Alison Rae - Birds

It's a regular Lilith Fair up in here.


Atlanta locals note that Andy Runton of Owly fame will be signing books at Criminal Records tomorrow (2-7pm), and Criminal will also be hosting a comic swap meet. Both events will mark the tenth anniversary of indie comics giant Top Shelf Productions.

Best thing about graduating UGA and leaving Athens? Not being accosted by UGG-wearing girls nearly as often. Worst thing? No longer being within walking distance of the 40 Watt. Which is more painful?

Ah, but I work here. I'll have to tolerate them until they completely fall out of "fashion." Sigh.

Personally, I remain amazed at the number of people who continue to wear flip-flops with temperatures in the 30s-40s. If you're wearing a scarf and parka, put on some shoes.

I don't know, Uggs are sounding pretty sweet - but I am in bitterly cold Minneapolis.
