This, this blows my mind. The crab picking contest won/shameless plea won? I give up.


Have an awful time!

Wow, sore loser much?

Note to future contest entrants (for contests voted on by the masses): your strategy should alway be to think inside the box. People seem to love the same old cliche Baltimore kitsch. They seem to love the Rez can on top of the Bromo Tower on the Photoshop contest.

That being said, hey TNTM, did you sit on a crab or something?

Nah man, I just placed 4 solid entries in a contest where the winner had an unoriginal entry + a sob story. Thumbs up all around!


Apologies about your loss. I am not sorry however, for how much fun we had with the band! Truly genuinely great guys, and they loved the crabs! Also, pix related :


If you have any real photos of chilling/competing with the band, I'd love to post 'em.

I do indeed, a whole slew of them. They are still on my camera but I can work on getting them to you tomorrow? Devon has some on her iphone I believe as well...
