Hey, look. One of my most loyal and supportive readers decided that, as long I was going to go gallavanting around to concerts in co-ops like last week's excursion to Mirah, I needed my own pair of Converse All-Stars (Chuck's) to wear to the shows. So they bought them for me as a gift ("A token of appreciation for the inspiration and hope your weblog has given me," the note read, "As hackneyed as this may sound, your weblog is truly the wind beneath my wings"). This new edition of the shoe, called the Chuck's "Shop Teachers," has four severed fingers glued to the side of each shoe.
