What a cupcake

Via Universal Hub, I was directed to this blog entry about a cupcake shop in Davis Square (Somerville, MA). Two things:


2) Among all the cupcakes they sell are DEEP FRIED cupcakes!

Of course, the place has a great name, Kickass Cupcakes.

I just have to get to this place - Chandler, can we please play Johnny D's again sometime soon?

I hope they last longer than Coolidge Corner's Pudding It First did.

It seemed somehow fitting ...

One of the best radio stations out there, WFMU, is having their big fundraiser marathon right now, and there's a special online-only promotion. In addition to other cool swag, if you make a paid pledge of $180 or more by March 8th (using a credit card or PayPal, they'll give you naming rights to an item or person at WFMU Headquarters for one year.

I present to you, The Chandler Travis Intestinal Fortitude Scale Model:

It, along with other named (and yet-to-be-named) items/people can be seen on Flickr as part of WFMU's 2009 Adoption Gallery

I highly encourage any of you who dig free form radio to help out this great station if at all possible. They have great swag and other cool promotions, too. For example, next Friday (March 13) from 8-11 pm is the annual Yo La Tengo plays cover song requests for your pledges event - pretty freakin' cool.
