What's on Dubya's 'pod? (scroll thumbnails to the cycling pictures) Now that's a playlist I'm curious about.... and I know some iPod owners that will cry at the thought of him fondling some Jobstech...
MoFi T Shirt Orders Ok kids, the voting's over and it looks like this design won. I've volunteered to get prices on getting them printed up here in California, but will need to get an idea of how many and in what sizes before I can get real numbers. Depending on the size of the run, real silk screened shirts can cost anywhere from 25 to 7 dollars a piece, so a real accounting of pre-orders is critical. It appears that Tracy will try to make it as easy as possible for you to pay (paypal, credit card, checks and money orders, etc...) so now it's time to walk the walk... Who's really gonna order one (or two, or three)? PS-Remember to give the sizes that you want as well.

Curious Chy: Where's Moneyjane? - Last time I saw Monejane post was.. uh.. I think before New Year. I sent her a NY email message, & the delayed reply was a little downbeat, without wanting to expose private shit (not that there's anything to expose). Plus I lost the link to her blog. I dig Moneyjane & enjoy her writings, think she's a vibrant chick. Let's send out a big monkey hoot to tell her we love her? I miss her & let's get her back.
