On February 10, 1996, Gary Kasparov lost a chess match to Deep Blue--an IBM Computer capable of processing over 200 million moves per second. Deep Blue then went on to marry a supermodel and helped give birth to the iPhone. No, no, that's not true. I made that last part up. BUT if you come in and mention 'chess' today, Imma give you 10% off.

Sure, sure...you could buy that book on Amazon, but where, I ask, are you going to fulfill your need for human interaction? Who will make small talk with you based on your purchase? Who'll just want to talk to you because they think your awesome? and informed? and because you look very fetching in that light jacket and scarf? Old Editions will. Specifically Eric. Go see him.

On this day in 1911 the poet-playwright-art critic Guillaume Apollinaire was jailed, suspected of masterminding the theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre. Evidence which pointed to Apollinaire also pointed to his friend Picasso, and he too was arrested. Picasso was released almost immediately, Apollinaire after a week; Mona Lisa was not found until 1913, after eight forgeries had been sold.

The guy that works at Old Editions is named Sir Eric Mowery--Mr. Superstar if you're nasty. He's an easy-going guy who appreciates literature, music, and bad jokes. Add him on facebook, send him stupid jokes, but, most importantly, stop by and see him. Seriously. Stop by the store and see him. It's also a great day for a walk! There's also that.
