In Case You Missed It: Week In Review

UMD Football celebration

Because you were getting pumped for FOOTBAHL!! and couldn’t drag yourself away from your fantasy team (see: Lee Levin), I know you didn’t have time for hip indie music at Knox Road. I’m disappointed. Your fantasy team better win the fantasy super bowl or I’ll be fantasy pissed. I just hope nobody has any money on Maryland this year. I know I don’t… :(

Pick of the Week:
Aquarium Drunkard: “Princeton on The Science Fiction of B.S. Johnson” Matt Kivel, from L.A. band Princeton, talks to AD about science fiction (??). It’s actually a pretty interesting piece on author B.S. Johnson who took pleasure in writing about the plight of modern society.
