bodyrolling: For anyone visiting from that link at Flagpole, I’ll be working at Studio in Athens, in the Leathers Building on Pulaski Street, under the guidance of my awesome teacher, Lauren O’Grady, who runs the studio. More about Yamuna Body Rolling, which I’m certifying in, here. Thank You: I’d like to take some time here to give a huge shout-out and thank you to longtime Athens music...
CNN iReport has posted their Top Five Squirrel-y iReports, and while all are ridiculously adorable, this one is heart-bustingly cute. Thanks for posting, Lila! :)
icelandwantstobeyourfriend: Halló, this is Iceland. I have heard that some important humans and cities have official photo-graphers. My Reykjavík has an official drawing person. She is called Rán, and you can look at her drawings. Bless bless, - Iceland P.S. Alísa made the moving picture, and Sin Fang made the músík.

MAN SAYS IT'S TOO HOT FOR CLOTHES
Here we go again — Wayne just found an item in the Madison County blotter — a man arrested for not wearing any clothes; apparently it was too hot. Is this the next headline that grabs the New York Times’ and Colbert Report’s attention? Wayne also got an email from a literary agent in New York today who’s trying to track down Bobby Kirk so he can share his story....
Secret show? Not anymore →
Why? Because city officials don’t know how to rock, according to my colleague. That’s probably not entirely fair, but you know. Show is now at Max Canada.

UGA University Theatre season
UGA’s University Theatre has announced its 2011-12 season, which includes the world premiere of Hidden Man, a southern gothic, coming-of-age story about artist Robert Sherer and his relationship with the late, great Reverend Howard Finster (who’s certainly no stranger to these parts). It also includes blockbuster musical Chicago, as well as Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. See the...
wine dinner postponed to August 10th
peterdale: Delays seems to be a given with travel these days. Some of the wines weren’t going to make it to Athens in time, so our dinner featuring German wines with Mediterranean foods is now August 10th. Reminders to follow. But this might give some of us more time to sign up…? :)

Construction at the Athens-Clarke County Library...
Just FYI, not a lot of events happening in the month of August owing to Phase 2 of construction there — the auditorium, small conference room and Heritage Room are closed as of Aug. 1.
Here comes The Colbert Report
They’re coming to the Athens next Wednesday to talk to Wayne here at the paper, and then I suppose they’ll track down Mr. Kirk.
So this story just got better (too hot to fish)
So I wondered how Wayne came across Mr. Kirk here, and he said he’d gone out to Bogart to see if he could interview this other fellow (*not* Kirk), a gentleman who drinks a lot and gets into trouble. Story is, this guy always runs into the woods when the cops come after him, even though they always catch him. (Except last time, he did run when the cops came, but he only got as far as...
