Radiohead T-shirt contest: Deadline closing soon
As reported earlier, at Synthetic Apparatus you can enter their Radiohead t-shirt design contest. Make sure to send your design(s) in before July 27th at Midnight CST. Good luck! Or just check Synthetic Apparatus to vote for your favourite designs.
So this is what I came up with tonight...not great but it will do. A simple shirt for my favorite, simple song "I Will" which has the lyrics 'white elephants, sitting ducks"...hence my choice of design. I think I read somewhere that the lyric may reference a line from a Hemingway short story about Spanish mountains looking like white elephants sitting down. Hmm...sitting down or sitting ducks, I don't know.
If and when my shirt gets accepted, it will get voted on. The people with the highest ratings and comments win $100 and their shirt...so if and when it gets accepted, if anyone cares to vote for me...well, I'd let you borrow my shirt and everything.
Their label Barsuk Records has an mp3 for you:
(just listened to it for the first time...it could be better)

Watching a VERY good Hoover High basketball team in a summer league game at UCSD. I was #41 at Hoover...so not only did they NOT retire my number...they saw fit to give it to two players. I guess that just means it takes TWOpeople to fill my shoes.

Got the standard 2 Chicken Pita Sandwiches at the new Zankou Chicken in West LA for lunch today. As I was putting my change away, I noticed that one of the dollar bills had a red stamp around one of the symbols saying something about a 'Currency Tracking Study'.
Where's George? is a site that tracks money by the zip code entered by each person who finds the bill. Kinda intersting idea...
According to my Where's George? Bill Tracking Report:
One Dollar Bill, Serial# J2001---0Q Series: 1995
This bill has travelled 5.7 Miles in 10 Days, 1 Hr, 58 Mins at an average of 0.57 Miles per day.
Is it legal to use someone's Wi-Fi connection to browse the Web if they haven't put a password on it?Sounds legal to me! Too bad someone's neighbors are discovering what WEP means.
Nobody really knows. "It's a totally open question in the law," says Neal Katyal, a professor of criminal law at Georgetown University. "There are arguments on both sides."

I like the description on the main page:
"Made with the finest chocolate, delectable flavorings and crisp rice cookies instead of raw fish, vinegar, and rice."
Ah...it DOES sound better!! Too bad it may taste like crap...

Hiked the Na Pali Coast today...absolutely amazing. Took the Kalalau Trail to a secluded beach where the cold river water mixes with the warm Pacific Ocean. Then we hiked up into interior Hanakapiai Valley to see its 300-foot waterfall. I made myself jump into the water under the waterfall and it was quite the religious experience. The long 7 hour hike made us very tired...but very happy.
It's golf tomorrow, the wedding rehearsal, and then the wedding on Sunday. I'll recap later...
