Can you believe we are half way throught 2007 already? In this episode, I chat a bit about Seattle Mindcamp and the iphone. I also share a little bit of beer news. TurboNegro has released a new album called Retox, so I thought I’d dust off an old Spool Sample from Party Animals.

The proceeds went to benefit Home Alive, a Seattle based non-profit that offers affordable self-defense classes. It was a great evening of beers and cheers in the name of a good cause.

Just for fun, I thought I’d include a few links to humurous beer ads as well:
