My favorite Band Does Not Exist


Idea Deity created a fake rock band, Youphoria, as an Internet hoax. He knows the hoax is going well when he starts to see people wearing Youphoria band t-shirts.

Youphoria front man Reacher Mirage is on the edge of stardom, but he can't figure out why his band is so popular, considering they've never played in public or recorded a single song. And who is this Deity guy who claims to have invented them?

Idea has a blonde girlfriend with a brunette face tattooed on the back of her head. Reacher has a brunette girfriend with a blonde face on the back of her head. Idea is headed to Maysville, Kentucky, where the grass is green and the sky is blue. Reacher is headed to Maysville, Pennsyltucky where the grass is pink and the sky is green. Both guys are reading the same book, and it seems to be leading them to each other. Sound weird? Well, it is, and it's also a great read. Check out My Favorite Band Does Not Exist

The right to assemble books!


As you may know, citizens of cities across the country, including Portland, are occupying the streets in demonstrations sparked by the Occupy Wall Street movement. No matter where you stand in your beliefs, you gotta admit it's impressive to see democracy in action. The organizers of these protests have created libraries that are busy social and educational centers in their make-shift communities. The website of the Occupy Wall Street library provides a fascinating look into what it takes to protect and organize books in the great outdoors.

Hey, you have a voice, even if you're not old enough to vote. We have lots of suggestions of books and other resources you can use to get organized and be heard. Stop by the library to learn more!
