Four girls from everywhere.
A school in the middle of somewhere.
A city at the edge of anywhere.
A school story like you'll find nowhere else.

The Extras is a modern take on a classic boarding school story, a slice-of-life comedy / fantasy about the everyday adventures of growing up. Located in the City, the School of Saints Java and Hellbender is as much a character in the story as the girls from almost everywhere who live and learn there, and just as full of secrets.

Hoot Hoot Treetz is based on a real roadside stand from the 1920s called Hoot Hoot I Scream. The one in our world was located in southern California and was eventually, sadly demolished- some sources say in the 1950s, some say it lasted until the 1970s. During these decades there were a lot of interesting and unique roadside stands shaped like different things- a donut wagon shaped like a huge donut, a coffee shop shaped like a bulldog, you name it. It'd be pretty cool to revive this sort of thing, don't you think?

Yeah, an depressing downside of the rise of National chains and Franchising is it caused all the cool Mom and Pop stands and roadside attractions to fade away and be replaced by homogenous buildings

Very true. We've exchanged convenience (uniform product being available everywhere all the time for a consistent price) for uniqueness and character in our towns and shopping experience, as well as the vitality that goes with these shops being owned at a local level. Things tend to move in cycles, though...

Looks like a fun place to get a treat (or treet). Also, the rhythm of saying the name has me thinking of a certain Queen song. ("Hoot, Hoot, Treetz! Hoot, Hoot, Treetz!")

You've just written their commercial! The backup singers are the owl chorus on their perches.

"No one is sure why an owl or what that has to do with ice cream..."


"'s always open..."

When I lived in Eugene, Oregon there was an independent diner open 24/7 called Hoots. A good restaurant for Night Owls, of course.

With the University mere blocks away, there was always steady business.

That's cool. I love local places with character. We have a new place up the main drag from us called Owl that's open 24/7 that's trying to establish itself. Still not at the level of the old favorites but I'll give them a few more years to settle in.

I remember Doggie Diner in San Francisco. The giant dachshund head was cool and creepy.

That's another great example! The only shop I've seen at all recently like this was a coffee shop in the shape of an espresso pot. It shared a parking lot with a carpet warehouse. The carpet warehouse burned down and while the coffee place didn't burn, the intense heat damaged it to the point that they dismantled it and took it away. I have no idea if or when it will return.

Character around here tends to go away, then come back at 5 times the price. The new places are kind-of nice, but don't feel quite right. But now I think about it, there are plenty of slightly odd little cafes in slightly odd litte side streets which are quite genuine and individual in their own way. They're just not individual enough to really catch your eye. And that's pretty-much Britain all over. :)
