Spin Street Is Closing

I think it’s safe to say most people in Memphis at least know of Spin Street – even if they haven’t shopped there before, it’s impossible to travel past the Poplar and Highland intersection and not notice the giant signs advertising the store, the posters along the windows, the giant Elvis standee above the entrance …

Only In Memphis – The “Vegan Cafe Baby Butthole” Story

I seriously wish I was joking about this one. I really do. Yes, this is a serious article, and one that has been delayed by something like 3 weeks now, mostly thanks to the MLGW Hoax earlier in the month; I never did write about this while it was fresh, and by the time I …

An MLGW Payment Kiosk Error Spawns A Bill Payment Hoax

I’m still trying to get all the details on this one, but I think I have enough to be able to write about this accurately enough, so let’s get to it: It would seem today that, for whatever reason, an error in the bill payment kiosk’s for Memphis Light, Gas, and Water (MLGW) would “not …

Skipping The Convention

So, right now, an event I used to go to every year, Anime Blues Con, is happening here in Memphis. It’s, as the name suggests, and anime convention, and it’s been in previous years something I’ve looked forward to since learning about it in early 2011 – I would first attend the convention in 2012 …

Re: How To Piss Off Someone From Memphis

Oh boy, another one of these X, Y, or Z articles about Memphis! This time, we got “How to Piss Off Someone from Memphis”, an article that, oddly enough, is written by someone who is from but, according to their profile, no longer lives in Memphis. Funny, looking at her profile on the site, it …

The Classic Utility Bill Scam Is Back In Memphis

One particular type of scam that’s rather common are ones involving your utilities, mainly electricity,  where they claim you owe a large amount on the bill and you have to pay now. Thing is, you can’t pay with your bank card, they only take cash at an undisclosed location or, to make things simpler, you …

HHGregg Is Closing All 220 Stores – This Doesn’t Surprise Me

Home technology store chain HHGregg is closing all of its 220 stores after failing to find a buyer for the now-struggling company. It’s the usual case of a business going into the red financially and filing chapter 11 bankruptcy to try to liquidate all its assets, pay its debts, and maybe restructure and get back …

Why FYE In Wolfchase Closed – My Thoughts

This article is more for the interest of local people who were fans of this particular FYE store, moreso than the average reader, but I still thought it worth publishing here for what it’s worth in the long run. While I do know people who were involved in the store, everything I propose here in …
