Another happy accident you should check out. Just occasionally. unless you just don't care about your health anymore.
Suicide rates of teenage boys are skyrocketing because of firearm access
“Few people know that the majority of gun deaths in this country are actually suicides"
"Boys and young men represent 80 percent of all youth suicide deaths, and 90 percent of all those who die by suicide using a firearm"
"suicide rates for 15- to 19-year olds have jumped by 29 percent in the past 10 years"
Looks like a strong El Nino this year means a drier winter here in #STL
I guess Hidden Valley is going to have to make a lot of snow this season!
Eeeeeee!!! St. Louis!!! We are here. SEE YOU TONIGHT AT .ZACK!!! Early show — doors at 5pm, show at 6pm. WOOO!!!
Tickets at the door or here: https://www.metrotix.com/events/detail/shannon-curtis-the-good-to-me-tour
Y’all. #Omaha!! What a WONDERFUL time. I have so much more to say, but it shall wait until tomorrow.
In the meantime, we’re bombing down the interstate toward #STL, riding high on all the good Benson Theatre vibes, and SO PUMPED to do this show tomorrow at .ZACK for our St. Louis peeps.
#STL Tower Grove Pride was pretty awesome.
i tabled for the DSA for a few hours and had a great time. for one thing, people were actually engaged and interested in what we had to say, and none of it felt like a hard sell; i had some interesting conversations with folks who were on different levels of engagement and very few shied away.
for the other, everybody was in a *good mood* and genuinely happy to be there in the sunshine in a safe environment, being themselves, wearing whatever, feeling welcomed, just...vibing. i don't think i've ever experienced anything like that before, on this kind of scale.
in any crowd, i always have my head on a swivel unless i feel generally at ease. today was no exception, i kept watch for people who stood out, but not for the sake of standing out--people dressed "normal" or visibly trying to blend in while looking nervous or frightened or angry. i was expecting shit-disturbers, and while i'm sure there were some (a comrade found a guy handing out Chick tracts), the worst i witnessed were some perplexed and bored-looking dads. everywhere else i looked were people experiencing joy and community with no filters or worries or social shields up, and i nearly cried thinking about it on the drive home. *i want this,* for everybody, forever.
the only really negative thing--and it was a source of hilarity for my group--was the presence of a Libertarian Party tent a few spaces down from us. i was tempted to march down there and go all Niedermeyer on 'em. "WHAAAAT THE HELL IS THAT? IS THAT A RAINBOW GADSDEN FLAAAAG???? IN YOUR PRIDE TENT????? WHAAAAAT DO YOU WANNA DO WITH YOUR LIIIIIFE?" (libertarians are unable to answer "I wanna rock" because they all think they should be the lead singer and nobody wants to play bass.)
The St. Louis office (LSX) of the National Weather Service held an open house today — its first in nine years! It was a lot of fun.
I use a *lot* of NWS data to make maps and interactive graphics at the Post-Dispatch.
TONIGHT = Saturday Sept 23, 7pm
BENSON = the coolest theatre in #Omaha
SHANNON CURTIS = me (hi!)
THE GOOD TO ME TOUR = a show that will leave you feeling uplifted, empowered, and ready to take on the world

Well, #STLOUIS: have we got good news for you! Our show at the gorgeous .ZACK on Sunday starts at 6pm! It’ll be over by 7:37pm!! School night? No prob! Let’s hear it for the early birds!
Wife pulls into Soulard #STL and then calls me "hey what did I like to eat around here"
Tune in to KWUR 90.3FM tonight at 7:05pm to hear @hilljam and me talking about — and giving tickets away for!! — our show on Sunday at the Kranzberg Arts Foundation’s.ZACK theater. 📡📡📡
Our refrigerator at home died while we were out of the country visiting Bolivia. Cleaning up when I got home was a nightmare — but at least it wasn't full of fish!👃 🐟
“I wish everyone I care about could have seen it with me.” — that’s one of the beautiful messages I got from people who came to our show at The Flynn in #Burlington this past weekend.
Here’s a tiny snippet from the show. What is hard to see in this video is the monumental amount of love in the room. @hilljam and I are so grateful for everyone who came and made the night so dang fun.
I am SO PUMPED to bring this show to you.
Who needs tickets?
Who’s gonna come give me a big ol’ hug after the show??

Hello everyone, happy Sunday!🙂👋 How is everyone and everything today We went to a rescue farm that takes in animals about to be slaughtered or retired after they can no longer work. It was a wonderful experience, my wife and daughter got to hug the St. Louis Six. They are six steers who escaped the slaughter house years ago, five are still living in the farm, one passed and has a memorial pond. I recommend it if you're in the area.
My goodness, #Burlington. What an awesome night. The love in the room!! Gah!! We are so grateful. Thank you so much to everyone who came to The Flynn — from all over Vermont, from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York — you all are incredible. And now we sleep, and dream. Love you all. 🖤🖤🖤
The large store at 3901 Lemay Ferry in #stl county that was a Venture for about 25 years and Kmart another 20, is getting demolished. It was built in 1960 as a GEM members-only department store.
Some drivers and mechanics at Metro, the transit agency in St. Louis, earned more than $40,000 in overtime in 2022, a Post-Dispatch analysis of payroll data shows. 🚌 💰
The agency says it has been grappling with a nationwide labor shortage that has left it scrambling to fill positions.
Woooo!! Let’s go radio!!
Tune in for a sneak peek at what’s in store for Saturdays show at The Flynn!
They are such a wise band.

Good morning friends, cronies and the Mastodon wanderers out there! 🙂👋 How's it going? It is a nice 64°F(17.7°C) in St. Louis but I'm trapped in the salt mines so won't be enjoying it too much. 🙄 They're also doing construction outside of my office. 🤬
My friend Penguin stopped by this morning, it's the neighborhood stray I've been trying to make friends with. I always like Burgess Meredith's Penguin character and it fits the cat.
Have a good day!
Ok, after this past weekend’s show in PA, this tour is officially on 🔥🔥🔥
Get your tickets! ⚡️⚡️⚡️
Hello everyone, hope you're having a good Sunday! 🙂👋 We went walking in the Missouri Botanical Gardens this morning. I took a lot of pictures because my daughter wasn't there speeding us through. I thought I'd share a few of the ok ones.
Have a great afternoon/evening!
Y’all. Tonight was INCREDIBLE. I have so much to say about the whole experience, but it’s after 3am and my body is like “can we sleep now?” so I’m gonna go ahead and listen to her and write tomorrow about the dream that was our night at The Colonial Theatre in #Phoenixville. SO MUCH LOVE to everyone there tonight. We love you so much. 🖤🖤🖤
It’s happening! Almost show time at The Colonial Theatre in #Phoenixville.
(Which is, by the way, SUCH a special place. Absolutely incredible staff. The best vibes. We love it here already.)
Still time to get your butt down here — we’ll save a seat for ya. 🖤

New Festival Seeks to Save KDHX — By Toppling its Leadership
S.O.S. Fest is being planned for Benton Park this fall https://www.riverfronttimes.com/music/new-festival-seeks-to-save-kdhx-by-toppling-its-leadership-40778428 #KDHX #SaveKDHX #FireKellyWells #SOSfest #STL #StLouis #communityradio #bentonpark
I picked up a new strain sample from a company named Codes here in Missouri called 314. This company has bred a few new strains and named them after some of Missouri's "iconic" area codes. I'm in St. Louis so I represent the 314 (Gateway Arch on the label too) but there's also the 816 which is in Kansas City and other locally named batches. It's coming in at a respectable 36% THC so I'm going to enjoy a 1/2 cone later.
There was a demonstration yesterday, outside Holyrood, against regulation of Short Term Lets. And we'll, their entitlement was on show.
Some absolute deranged comments from these landlords.
Good morning everyone, happy Sunday! 🙂👋 Here are some pictures from the 2023 Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. The first or traditional Japanese dancers in the starting ceremony of the festival, the second is a statue in the gardens, the 3rd is a dragon in the opening ceremony and the fourth is a piece of Chihuly glass in front of a mausoleum in the back of the garden. Overall it was a good time.
Have a good day!
It’s official: we are ON THE ROAD!

We renewed our Missouri Botanical Gardens membership today and took a stroll. I've attached some pictures from the day, there's some water lilies, a banana tree with bananas and the Koi from the Japanese Gardens. A great day for a walk in the garden, now I need coffee and cannabis. ☕😎
Have a great afternoon!

Hello everyone, how's it going? I'm on my lunch break and it's miserable here in St. Louis. 🥵 The feels like temperature is about 20 degrees higher than the actual temperature thanks to the damn humidity. You can literally feel a layer of condensation on your skin walking outside.
Have a good afternoon and try to stay cool! I'm going to recline my seat and take a 20 minute nap before I have to go back to durance vile.
omg I just realized that @hilljam and I only have 12 more days at home before we start driving east for our tour 🤯 DO YOU HAVE YOUR TICKETS YET? 👀 Looking at you: Pennsylvania, Vermont, Omaha, and St. Louis!
Hello everyone, I hope your evening is going well! 🙂 We just got done with dinner and it was amazing! We ate at an intimate little place called Polite Society. Not the cheapest meal but definitely worth a try if you're in St. Louis. My wife had the cauliflower streak with carrots and mushrooms, I had the streak with sauteed crispy brussel sprouts and fries. We also had cocktails, I had a Sanguine, Melissa had a Strawberry Manilow.
Have a good night! 💤
Hello everyone, TGIF! 🙂👋 How are all my friends and cronies doing today? I'm currently looking at an empty status and looking longingly at the clock, it's been an exhausting week. It's our wedding anniversary today so we'll be going out for a fancy dinner tonight. I'm still in shock she's put up with my dumbass all these years. 😲 The picture below is us in 2008 at the St. Louis Zoo.
Have a great Friday everybody!

It’s wonderful to feel physically tired, particularly because I know it came from practicality instead of something artificial like weight-lifting, which isn’t bad but always feels pointless to me personally.
A very serious look on Mr. Minx for Caturday. He's been dealing with his rambunctious younger siblings Oreo and Pixie.
How's everyone doing? It's post thunderstorms here and if the rain stops I'm taking a walk. The temperature dropped 25 degrees in an hour here in St. Louis and it's a reasonable 70°F/22°C.
Have a good evening. 🌆 Stay dry or cool, whichever applies.

Happy Caturday from my chair stealing cats Elsa, Mr. Minx and Oreo. I'm not sure if Mr Minx is giving Oreo a hug or putting him in a headlock.
Have a good day! The temperature is going to be hovering around 100°F (38°C) in St. Louis later so I'll probably be doing very little.
Anyone in the #STL / #StLouis area need a pal? I know I’m a mess right now, and much of that which is not my bipolar disorder flaring is directly attributable to the fact that I don’t really have any irl friends that I can hang with or that would hang with me, without constantly putting each other under the “you must be neurotypical appearing at all times” lens.
I’m gently used and mostly broken but I’m trying to be a person worth knowing.

Actually been on the fediverse for several years now, but was dormant for some time. Making a solid go of it again in light of the Twitter fiasco.
Spent the first 4 years over on Fosstodon.org before trying to make a go of joining a hyper-local instance. Trying to get my other #STL Twitter folks to join the fun.
