Andrea at The Mill needs our help.
Even though it's a labor holiday, The Mill will be open this Monday from 8-5 and all the money they make on the day will go to Andrea—a long-time Mill employee—to help cover the medical bills she'll be racking up for a kidney transplant.
I'll see you there. Buy me a few coffees and I'll by you a few.
More info at Folks From Lincoln.
Even more info at Star City Scene.

I need a vacation already and it's only the second day of my semester!
What the hell good is anthropology gonna do me anyway?
What did you guys major in and where do you work now? Help out a 30-year-old sophmore : )
found this lil hunk of gold while looking for what i thought was something else, YouTube is a lot like life in that way huh? you're looking for one thing, it turns out to be not what you thought it was and in the process you find something equaly amazing on accident!
This video has been making it's way across various sites on the interwebs lately. It was made with one of these insane cameras that the founder of Oakley dreamed up.
A couple years back I was itching to get a Red camera of my very own. I think it's time to sell my car, a kidney and find whatever other items of value I can under my couch cushions.
(sorry for slacking on the couch pics by the way, Robbie)

Hi. I'm Robbie. For those that don't know me, I'm Kev's little brover. I've been a regular contributor to Good Problem since you were in a wet diaper and now I am reaching out to this growing population of Problem Havers - YOU.
I am working on a project that involves couches and couch related activity and I could really use your help, contribution, and collaborative spirit.
I want a photo of your couch. That's all.
- First, peep the couch photo examples in this post and keep this style of couch framing in mind when mentally preparing for your couch photo shoot.
- Next, take a few seconds to square up your digi-cam and snap me a photo of your living-room cruiser.
- Finally, email me your couch photo. Send it to robbiefresh at gmail.com Make sure the file you send is nice and high res. Hook me up with your couch photo by this Wednesday if you can :)
I'll love you forever.
I didn't watch much of the Olympics. Frankly I could care less who is the fastest runner/swimmer/kayaker/whateverer. I did stumble upon NewsWeek's Visions OF China blog by NewsWeek's photographers. For me the photos are far more interesting than the televised event. Plus they give a good bit of insight about how the shots where made and their motivations for shooting this way or that. It would be interesting to see how these guys would shoot skateboarding. Judging form how they shot diving, they would probably isolate the skater in the air with no context as to where he is going or where he came from.

Sorry to hit up everybody, but my wife and I just had our bikes stolen from 24th St. and 5th Ave S tonight.
This is a big bummer mostly because my wife finally had a bike that she was in love with and was commuting to work on.
You will be taken care if you lead us to our steeds.

On Saturday August 23, 2008 the ISM: gallery will host the opening exhibition, showcasing over 150 creative deck canvases from some of the most poignant and significant active artists and professional skaters.
Be sure to RSVP.
Last week's Wednesdays With Reda turned into this week's six-part backstage epic with Omaha's own The Faint.
The Berrics is so much killing it so much right now.
P.S. Faint's last show of their current US tour is this Saturday at Sokol.

The Ponca ride was a blast. Lots of miles with friends. My hat goes off to Wills for the route and the navigation. Thanks again buddy!
Gersib, DK and I were a bit ahead of the group while we was closed in on Ponca. We rolled by the Messerschmidt farm and this fella came running out to greet us. Now I've had all kinds of negative experiences with dogs on gravel rides, but this wasn't the case. This fella was very friendly and obviously stoked to have someone to run with. The fella ran ahead of us up a very long stteep hill and kept turning around to see if we were still there.
"Yeah! We're coming! Slow down dawg!"
The dog was flying and smokin' us up the hills. After a mile or two, we began to get concerned that we were getting too far from the dog's farm. So I decided to drop the hammer up the next roller. It was tough and I slowly pulled away, but the dog wasn't giving up! The dog was running at top speed to catch me. After a couple hills I began to get concerned that I might be running the dog into it's grave.
Luckily the rest of the crew spotted the dog as they rolled by. Jim commented that the dog's tongue was hangin' out to the ground. Whew, the dog was still alive.
Good show fella! See you next year.

"Having abandoned the idea of retreating into the Mojave, Brian and I settled into El Dorado studio in LA, where we were told Frank Sinatra had worked sometimes. We stayed on Vermont, in what is now Koreatown, I think. Prairie Prince, of the Tubes, joined us for a few days, playing drums, percussion and odds and ends. Our own percussive efforts made interesting sounds- using cardboard boxes and cases- but sometimes we lacked precise time."

I know I already told you all about the new Food On Drunk blog, but you never listen. You're so fricking scattered that it takes forever get your attention. Like, "Hey ... Hey! ... I SAID, HEY, YOU IDIOT. PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT I'M TRYING TO TELL YOU. IT'S FOR YOUR OWN FRICKING GOOD!"
But, yeah. I know I already told you that Dave and Tania have a new blog, but I just thought I'd tell you again.
