Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013's Lowdown
(Above: Oh. My. God.)
Remain calm, Humboldt. Those three snowflakes that stuck to your deck do not bar you from doing any of the great community things going down in the county today.
In fact, eff it, just throw your self full bore into the "snowy" outdoors during the annual Candlelight Walk through the Redwoods which disembarks from the Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park visitor center this afternoon.
Or, it just so happens to be Arts Alive tonight. Stroll through our temporary winter wonderland and handle some of that soul-crushing Christmas shopping. Should you drive through Eureka, remember Humboldt drivers become baby giraffes on rollerblades when actual weather effects our roads. Be safe.
Oh, yeah. Also, a couple of our office mates will b.s. live and onstage at the Eureka Inn for your enjoyment -- I mean, it's something we at LoCO endure everyday. But you are not us. Yes, it's the monthly Late Night with Sherae talk show thingy with special guest Mike Dronkers. Watch the worst-quality YouTube video ever below to get a taste of the O'Shag/Dronk chemistry. Plan your evening accordingly.
The Lowdown Fun Committee
Godlin Gets Behind
If I can finally and conclusively prove that Roosevelt knew the attack was coming, I'll be by the gazebo in Old Town telling everyone. Arts Alive it is. [$5 and under award]
Sherae O'Whatever has some serious gall, throwing a fun talk show on Pearl Harbor Day. Support American by boycotting it. In fact, don't even look at her listing below.
I'm pretty sure it's in my contract as a KHUM employee to go see my Boss/Friend (ie: BOSS FRIEND!) Mike Dronkers squirm uncomfortably under the harsh lights of Sherae's interrogation at Late Night With Sherea. But if I get new wrinkles from flinching at his embarrassment, I have only Dronkers to blame.
