Back when I was single and dating, I remember a first date when I was getting into the guy's car and spotted, on the back seat, the Loompanics catalog.
Those of you who know what that is will be chagrined to hear that I got into the car, and the relationship, anyway.
The guy turned out to be not so much the sort of person who would buy Loompanics publications (arranged in categories such as "Heresy/Weird Ideas" "Murder, Death, and Torture" "Head for the Hills" and "Reality Creation" ) as the type who would leave the catalog on prominent display to freak people out.
MiscMedia.com notes that Loompanics is going out of business. Check out their sale, complete with a touching farewell comic strip.
