Slothrop's ADVENTURE FRIDAY:

See "November Man" starring Pierce Brosnan and Olga Kurylenko, today at CC Plaza, 14:40 hrs. This is a bullshit spy thriller just like all the others. Stuff gets blown up and the good guys (the Americans, sorry Chomsky) eventually triumph. Great for people who have given up carbohydrates and need alternative bad habits. A short discussion about spy life, led by Edward Snowden, will be held immediately following the film. Sturgeon will be served during the performance. Won't you join us, Dear Slothropite?

The Slothrop's Price Match Challenge:

In about one week Slothrop's will start carrying NEW books. And the good news is we're not going to fleece you, dear book lover. The book below goes for 34 euros in big Estonian bookstores. We're going to sell it for 24 euros. (How can we do that? you ask. Easy: We're not evil!) Won't you help us challenge Estonia's bigger bookstores to lower their prices and stop fleecing the customer? Won't you share this link and spread the word?
Slothrop's: for smart people who aren't rich.
