musical interlude

the history of hiphop

Wow, all the great songs I missed while listening to indie rock. Thank you, "the Rub", I might even buy a t-shirt.

Monkeys Control a Robot Arm With Their Thoughts

I've been warning against this for years : monkey powered robots. My prediction : they will destroy us all.
Also : Celtics over L*kers in 7

Apparently this is a meme. I had to look it up.

Westside Invite 8 pt. 4 "Saturday Afternoon"

After the Coffee Cat I helped move the kegs up to the Congress House. At this point I'd like to thank the Widmer Brothers for their generous sponsorship. It's a nice change from PBR and Rockstar 21.

An herb planter at the Congress House.

The new brewing tower as engineered by Thud. I'm still not clear on how it works but I'm sure the results will be delicious.

I made it to the track just in time for the 2nd race : miss and out. I was the first one out, which was fine because I find the track terrifying.

Thud cooling down.
Sharky at Pendelton Park.

Austin claiming his prize from the Coffee Cat.

Lucky Pierre and Thud engineering the Beer Bungie.

Mattchew on the Beer Bungie.

Rob's technique of run, lunge, grab, drink should win some style points.

Chas was tempted with cash money.

Sweet T is still teamate #1 until someone gets a bigger tattoo.

Westside Invite 8 pt. 3 "The Coffee Cat"

Sharky, hydrating before the start of the Coffee Cat. He was going for an unprecedented 3rd victory. I hear he averages 6 cups per hour in an ordinary day so this should be no big deal for him.

Fox, expressing confidence before the start. He really likes coffee.

Todd D. Danger the "mastermind" behind the Coffee Cat.

At the start.

Will took off so fast that he forgot his helmet.

Austin got a slow start and then got lost but look for him in the main race, he's sure to be a contender.

Boston had trouble with his first cup, not a good sign.

Sharky coming in hot to the finish.

He had to add cream.

Sharky savoring his final cup.

He had to take a moment by the dumpsters.

Matt had to spange for his final cup.

That could be a Stumptown ad right there. I love the Coach hat.

Will and Fox coming in hot. They were racing from the Half and Half and they raced all the way to the air pot, and all for 4th and 5th place.

This is my favorite photo of the day. For a split second I thought Will was going to go through the window.

You can zoom in on Emily's list to see the results.
