HLH - Strike!

Saturday a strike was called in union square, signs were made for the two opposing sides. Jim Manning was the reporter on the scene.

Tension was in the air.

By law we were restricted to keep a certain distance away from each other and keep moving.

Even if we didn't agree on the issue, everyone is entitled to their own view...you know freedom of speech and all.

We yelled at each other and the public. They had a right to know.

We eventually came to a compromise...we would never be able to agree.

The signs were abandoned but the public took up the cause! This was an important issue!

Things got ugly. Jim was almost caught in the crossfire.

Can't we just all get along?

HLH - What Would Lester Bangs Do?


Who thought of this one?
Since Lester used to live in the area, just off 14th on University, we figured he must have always been thinking about the top albums of all time, so we'd see if anyone would be willing to share their opinion. Luckily we ran into Ed Schexnayder, another AiOP artist, just to get at least one result before we failed miserably at polling the public.


It rained miserably, and we bought an umbrella.

Who doesn't love to be approached on the street with clipboards, asking for 'a minute of their time'?

Finally we actually talk to a member of the public who says Bill Hicks had the greatest album of all time...Success!
