Radiohead, again challenging the record business, has recently released "stems" of their song Reckoner for fans to create their own remixes. I've been listening to a lot of the remixed versions on radioheadremix.com. I liked the remix by Forced Movement (Save the Kids) and Diplo, but there are plenty to check out with over 2,000 tracks uploaded onto their site.
If you're into Radiohead or not, you have to admit they're on to something with the pay what you want pricing policy. I can dig it.

These photos were all taken in Montreal. I had just purchased a new holga and was eager to try it out. So these are from my first couple of rolls. I admit, I forgot to take the lense cap off often and not many photos came out how I was imagining them to. I was taking pictures all over the place.
Cody and the cook at this great little Italian restaurante by his house. They are big Cody fans there.
First go at a double exposure in the city.
A day in the park. Good times.

I just got back from a weekend well spent in San Francisco. I left my house at 4 A.M. on Friday morning for the a Pro Women Athlete's Career Conference. I was thinking, "I'm going to a conference I should dress nice." So I showed up at 8 A.M. with a nice top and my jeans. Little did I know we were going to be working out. I figured I would be fine to work out in my jeans. First lunge I hear a rip. Yes, I ripped my jeans. This was a first for me. The workout that we were all being introduced to is called Cross Fit. It's all about power!
Following this workout session all the ladies were taken over the Fort Mason for the conference. My "nice" clothes were dirty, so I was dressed rather casual at the actual conference. There were amazing guest speakers from many different sports and different angles within the industry of women athletics. I had no idea what to expect from this conference, but I walked away with a lot more than I thought possible. Not only did I get to hang out with a bunch of amazing women, I also got to hear different perspectives on women in sports. It was a powerful conference. I'm glad that I was invited to attend. She Jumps did an incredible job putting the whole thing together. Thanks to Lynsey, Claire, and Vanessa for the invite, to Dr. Kevin Stone for being so hospitable, and to all of the absolutely inspiring guest speakers.

There were billions of dollars in planes. No big deal.

K2 Skis presents the first annual K2 Skis PINK CHASE fundraiser! This distinctively GLOBAL fundraiser interlaces two important aspects of the lives of K2 women and women all over the world--skiing and wellbeing.
During the month of October, the women of the K2 Alliance (our women development teams) around the globe (including U.S., Canada, Europe, and Japan) will ski as much vertical or walk as many kilometers in a given time period on a given day with two goals in mind: to raise as much money as possible for breast cancer research and to have fun and ski their legs off with a big group of their K2 girlfriends! Four different breast cancer research organizations will benefit from all of the money raised from these online fundraisers.
