Pandemonium Update:

Tyler (the owner) got to announce on Sat. that he had managed to get a Consolidation loan (after a year of trying), which includes the tax debt, and that they’ll be removing the Lien on the Store in the next 2 weeks as the paperwork clears. The money from the fundraiser donations and the folks who helped out by shopping etc will be put towards getting the loan payments dealt with and getting the store in a better way with stocking what people want and providing the services/activity space that they want.

BPD: It’s Too Late!

At approximately 9:35pm on Saturday, 3/29/08 officers arrested, James Mahan, 45, of Boston and charged him with Indecent Exposure, and Disorderly Conduct.

Officers were at the MBTA train at the Forest Hills MBTA station pursuant to an investigation when they had to board a train. Officers boarded the train that had numerous male, female and children occupants heading inbound when they observed an individual standing up and facing the door. Officers observed the suspect adjusting his zipper while standing and continued to monitor the suspect. Officers shortly thereafter observed the suspect removed his private parts from his pants, and ordered him to zip up his pants, and get off the train. The suspect stated to officers “It’s too late!” At this time officers observed the suspect start to urinate all over the floor of the train causing people to scatter and scurry away from the suspect.

The suspect was consequently arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct, and Indecent Exposure.

Pandemonium Books Fundraiser Tomorrow Night

From here:

Pandemonium Books & Games in Central Square Cambridge (4 Pleasant Street, behind the 7-11 on Mass Ave and across the street from the Post Office) is having financial problems, from a combination of Taxes/Fees owed to the State Department of Revenue, outstanding to creditors and the inability to get a cosolidation loan in the current economic downturn from the banking crisis.

In order to start the ball rolling to help, we the local fans and customers of the bookstore are holding a Pot Luck Fund Raiser at the store this Saturday Night, 7-11 pm in the store’s basement activity space.

Folks who want to come and help out this independent bookstore survive should bring a shareable food item and be willing to donate $10 into the Pandemonium Preservation Fund.
