At a Whim


While at the Hickoree's Hard Good's Pop-Up Shop the other day we received our first shipment of our first print-based periodical. No it is not Free&Easy or Lightning or any other magazine that like the rest will fade into the online realm. This periodical stands out among the rest for it's impecible attention to detail and it's attention to the finer points in life.

Whim Quarterly is a "humor" periodical done the right way with a well designed layout and hilarious articles by writers from Urban Daddy, The Daily Show, Cash Cab (both Cash Cab and Cash Cab: After Dark), National Lampoon, The Late Show with David Letterman, and more plus Emmy award winners and nominees with other greats such as Elliott Kalan, Devon Coleman and Craig Robinson.  At only $4.00 you get your money's worth.  If I had a penny for each time I laughed I would have made the $4.00 back by the 3rd page.

The articles are amazing with the Whim Exclusive Ayn Rand's Newly Discovered Picture Book and Why Robots Are Cooler Than Cars: But Not As Cool As Dinosaurs to Street Names of New Drugs Your Kids Are Taking and "Water: It Tastes Like Crap!".  But my absolute favorite is the Excerpts from The New Astronaut's Cookbook whose main ingredient in each recipe is a secret ingredient we are carrying at the Hickoree's Pop-Up Shop.  Plus, you get a free toy with your purchase.  So come on by and pick one up along with the secret ingredient for your next astronaut meal.

Ryan? The name's not Ryan. Either you have the wrong blog or you noticed that my template was designed by Ryan Blomberg. Not me though. The name's Shaun, nice to meet you Anon. Thank you for visiting though and I highly recommend you read Whim Quarterly. Did you pick it up at Hickoree's Hard Goods?

I just picked up a copy and it's awesome. I rather have this cheap mag for $4 that 4 bags of fries from the Mc Donald's Dollar Menu.
