I've been thinking my utility belt is maybe getting a little ratty

I've been jealous of San Francisco's pirate store for a while now, so I'm delighted to learn that Dave Eggers will be opening a companion store in Park Slope, the Superhero Supply Company.

The store has everything a modern, well-equipped superhero might need: leotards, boots, tights, magnets, chain ladders, nets and other tools of the villain-fighting trade. "We don't sell comic books or figurines,'' Mr. Seeley said. "It's literally what a superhero would use.''

Awesome. Could be a good source of material for the next music club, if they sell CDs aimed at the superhero market.

Also in McSweeney's news, I just ordered the new Chris Ware-edited Issue 13. Will it outshine the They Might Be Giants issue? We shall see.
