The other day at our regular Magic: The Gathering gathering, I asked Ultrademon and Zombelle how they felt about being written up in the Times, and they expressed some ambivalence. On one hand there's a certain sense of accomplishment in attracting the Times's notice, but on the other hand the article compares them to LOLcats and Pedobear. On a third hand, they were unreservedly psyched about finally making it onto Hipster Runoff.
In case you're interested in an in-the-flesh seapunk experience, Zombelle, Ultrademon, repatriated Chicagoan Johnny Love, and Dark Wave Disco's Greg Corner have started throwing a weekly party called Easy at the VFW hall in Wicker Park.
