    sharyn started the conversation Strange City Night Market.

    If anyone is around Saturday night, my art collective is having an event at Modist Brewing and we made the City Pages A-list

    This weekend, A Conspiracy of Strange Girls is teaming up with Modist in the North Loop for another night of lady-driven weirdness that will go until witching hour. The makers and artisans mart will be a delightful cabinet of curiosities to explore. Check out vegan lotion bars shaped like tombstones, ethereal crystal pendants, bad-ass bondage-inspired leatherwear, and cheeky coffee mugs that say “Butt.” Sample botanical tinctures while sipping beer, and get your pic taken at the tintype photobooth. Live music will be provided by the Dumpy Jug Bumpers and Melissa Boric, with DJ sets by Mother T. Rosa and Devata Daun. 6 p.m. to midnight. Free. 505 N. Third St., Minneapolis; 612-454-0258. —Jessica Armbruster

    Fun show last night. Felt like an old school MRMB reunion. And the Palace is gorgeous. Wish it had been there when I was in high school, or when I owned a house near downtown St Paul.

    I want to watch The Handmaid's Tale but I'm worried it will be a big triggering. Read the book years ago.

    Sunday is the premiere of American Gods on STARZ. Hoping for the best but the casting doesn't match what was in my head at all and I've read and re-read the book many times.

    @warsawpactarmor I'm curious what the Harkonnen "activities" are. Fondling slave boys...boil draining...taping a rat to a cat...hosing gore off black steel grates...

    Those were my thoughts too! When I stumbled on these at Half Price Books years ago. These are utterly ridiculous. There is a recipe for spice cookies. Can't remember what other goofiness is in them off the top of my head.

    I couldn't sleep at 4am so I started reading a cheesy book about an EMP attack over the US. At that only increased my anxiety. And then when I was driving into work I heard some government official on NPR talking about the possibility of EMP attacks. It's about to turn me into a prepper.

    That manicure on the right isn't goth enough.

    I did enjoy Milkjam's black just the other day

    @Turlough's ;Axe Finally saw Kubo and the 2 Strings. Really, really enjoyed it. Some cheez-ish 'in every modern cartoon' bits, but mostly very good. Excellent animation, simple fairy tale type story. The animation is really amazing and that alone makes it worth watching.

    Managed to get free passes for that one when it was still in the theater. The kiddo and I enjoyed it on the big screen. It is a beautiful little movie.
