I've had a few near the top end but the most memorable was one in St. Louis where there were like 5 of us in this 1800's warehouse that backed to the Mississippi River. It was the middle of January so the river was frozen af so we kept warm by (this is crazy) burning coal + logs in our barrell stove. We were far away from any commercial venues & down a steep cliff from residential units so I guess the coal smoke just drifted across the river? Dunno.

Oh and there were rats too- not as pets so that sucked but my "room" was a dusty old chute that was too slippery for those fuckers to climb but my mates had nasty run-ins with them + omg they bite like motherfuckers! (More on that in a diff story)....

I distictly remember trying to pinch out a loaf on the antiquated toilet system but my balls being nearly frozen on the seat. God that shit sucked but still a great squat.

I heard some rich guy bought it for other rich artists so whoever's got it now has the best spot known to man! Oh + there were caves nearby too. Big ones you could almost drive a car into.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
