The RFT Called That Craigslist Guy

Earlier this week we were the first to bring you the story about a local man looking for a live-in secretary who will pick up his kid from school, be “semi professional” and “semi respectable” and enjoys his interest in “420”…oh and hopefully have sex with him. …yeah you’d hate to get someone that’s any more than “semi” respectable. It would totally ruin your whole business venture that is definitely not…unretarded. [Read More]

The Telegraph Calls St. Louis ‘America’s Greatest City’

Wow, thanks Telegraph. The British paper recently had an article in their “Expat Life” section claiming that St. Louis is the best city in America for the Brits to visit. The author is Mark Sutherland, who moved to St. Louis 20 years ago and apparently has yet to have been murdered.

Once Again in the Absence of Anything to Talk About, Local News Points the Camera at Grass

What do local news reporters turn to when they need a story, but nothing’s going on in our fair city? Time and time again, they turn to grass.

KMOV’s Matt Sczesny Got Beat Up

KMOV (Channel 4) reporter Matt Sczesny and it wasn’t by someone who got overly frustrated after trying to spell Sczesny’s name phonetically like you’d imagine. Turns out it was just some guy who wandered over while they were on a story. Sczesny was in Alorton standing outside a KMOV truck when a man walked up to him and asked if he could ask him a question. Sczesny said sure, and the man punched him, according to Sean McLaughlin, KMOV’s executive news director. [Read More]

Cat Sings to Collective Soul

Cats and 90’s alternative rock music have finally converged. Nothing else will ever be better than this…unless you’re Collective Soul who is now no doubt going through their back catalog and realizing that many of their songs could easily include a meow to make them substantially more interesting. Off the top of our heads, in addition to the below Shine: Gel, December, Heavy, Breathe, and Goodnight, Good Guy could all easily incorporate this cat. [Read More]
