I came across an interesting website last night; it’s called 8tracks. The concept is simple: user-created playlists that anyone can browse and stream from their computer. The argument: musical mixes that are “handcrafted” by human beings are more enjoyable than sites like Pandora. After a little exploring I’ll admit that 8tracks makes a compelling argument.

FACT: Owls are terrifying
Kelsey thinks owls are cute. On the contrary, I don’t think I have ever seen something so chilling. Incidentally, you can download a high-quality video of this horror show from the company who did the slow motion photography. You know, so you can show it to small children who have wronged you.

Today I got my beautiful Texas A&M paperweight in the mail. I don’t know how I missed this when I was actually a student there, but when I saw Kelsey’s ‘10 version I realized I was way too petty and jealous to not have one of my own.
