Shoun Flynn, "Needles for Teeth"
When local agit-zine The Hooligan called it quits after a decade of caustic satire and poor spelling, contributor Shoun Flynn decided to focus on the web version of his infamous "Needles for Teeth" column. Half blog, half meth-stoked rant, "Needles" pokes merciless fun at cops, the Disney Channel, Denver poets and, of course, its own author, all the while extolling the virtues of John Coltrane and Mr. & Mrs. T Bloody Mary mix. It's kinda like if Hunter S. Thompson doused himself in absinthe and plugged his dick into a mainframe.
