In the HiLobrow galaxy, there are many stars. We’re frantically mapping constellations of our favorite hilobrows; and we ooh and ahh with delight as highbrows and lowbrows flash across the atmosphere. As for darkly brilliant nobrows, we can detect them by studying their influence (benign? malign?) upon other heavenly bodies. As for high middlebrows and low middlebrows, they’re the vector-graphics asteroids and we’re the little tiny spaceship blasting away at them doggedly, resignedly, forever.
Happy birthday to the following high-, low-, no-, and hilobrow heroes. Click here to see more HILO birthdays.
