Giant My Little Pony at BronyCon


In this issue Kate Drabinski's feature story delves into the perfectly normal world of grown men who obsess over My Little Pony.

In City Folk, Rafael Alvarez tells the story of Frank DiCarra, who spent decades working at the Crown, Cork, and Seal factory, and is full of lively stories about fast women and slow horses. The Nose is back in Mobtown Beat with an investigation into mail that is seized for drugs and money, and Van Smith tells the story of a Howard County Republican facing charges of impersonating a Social Security officer in order to gain access to a bank account.

In the Arts, Bret McCabe digs deep into Gregory Vershbow's photographs of art-objects at the Walters and Damien Ober reviews City Paper fiction contest finalist Timmy Reed's first book. Michael Farley talks to Hunx and His Punx frontman Seth Bogart and Josh Sisk gives us the lowdown on heavy music. In Film, Brandon Weigel finds David Gordon Green's new film Prince Avalanche lacking.

Rebecca Scott Lord feeds and kills chickens with Steve Martinez at his chicken farm and Broke-Ass Gourmet is back with a delicious taco recipe, while Jenn Ladd day-drinks at Zissimos.

In the columns, Mr. Wrong tries to cure his back-ache with powerball, Spitballin' exults in the Ravens' first hall of famer, and Charm City Porn Star categorizes his colleagues.

The Baltimore City Power Rankings are bullish on Linemen and the Convention Center, lukewarm on O'Malley, and down on the School Board and Bob Curran.

As always, use the Baltimore Weekly to plan your week.
