NPR is always the way to go. I listen every morning. Flipping back and forth between the morning shows and local NYC alternative music show via Seattle. I think maybe its because we are getting old and, how do you say, crotch-ity.

Have you heard of This American Life? It's a show based in Chicago.
It's hosted by Ira Glass, & tells really epic, to absolutely terribly crude stories.
That minimum bid sounds right.

wow!! i have always wondered what the actual set of "wait, wait" looked like. i was thinking it would look a lot more like american bandstand-ish. weird...
also, do i remember reading before that you like lungfish? if that is so, i just wanted to point you in the direction of a band called end of a year (named after the embrace song). i run a little record label and put out a split they did last year, but i really think you'd dig it. SUPER bummer shit though.

I just got a twitter from Morrissey saying to vote for him on NPR.
Dude,I don't have 1000 dollars.

I do like Lungfish.
I think I have posted photos of Daniel Higgs on this site before.
And I totally listen to This American Life.

What happens to all those chemicals you use to develop your black and white? Do you have a service that comes and picks up the waste or do you take them to a dump station? Or do you dump them down the drain? Let's talk about the effects of those chemicals on the enviroment. Worth the $1000 starting bid on a picture of BAM? Who's to say? Not me...

Dear Chilgnons pullout,
#1, the photograph is a charity auction.
Learn about it here:
This means I made the print and paid to get it framed, then gave it to Juxtapoz to auction for charity. No money to me, all money to a worthy cause. That is why they set the prices like this.
#2, The Chemicals get put into plastic containers when I am done printing, then periodically, I take them to the city dump's chemical disposal unit, and they properly dispose of them. They do not end up in the ocean.
I never claimed that photography was particularly good for the environment, but it is the thing I love to do, and I have tried to build my life around it. I attempt to make up for it through the things I buy, be it food, cars, etc.
See here for one:
But do your own research.

I am 17 years old, and listen to NPR with an unhealthy obsession. Wait wait with Tony came on when I was getting out of my car to work, and I thought I knew the voice, thinking it had to be Tony. Sure enough they announced it was in fact the man himself, and I spent another miserable and dreary day at work missing my beloved NPR and childhood.
