  4. Have you read the hipster kids book Suzuki Beane? If not, you totally need to find a copy and read it (if I’m in Bloomington again some time, I’ll let you read my copy).
    It’s sad that it is so rare — I picked it up with a bag of other stuff for a dollar at a book sale, and only found out that it was out of print when I tried to get a copy for a friend.
    and woah, more weird stuff about it that I hadn’t known: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_Beane
