I just got an email informing me that season tickets for BYU football games will be much more intelligently handled this year. You can buy them online and create groups you want to sit with. Your seats won't be rotated - instead, you are guaranteed one spot for the whole year. It's much better than it's been in the past, and we're supposed to have a really good team to boot.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that I kind of want to see BYU football games this year, but I also want someone to go with me, since going to games by yourself is ten kinds of lame. Any takers? Earlier customers are given better seats, so the sooner we get in on this, the better. And if there aren't any takers, well then, I'll just stay at home and calculate stats or something.

Wanna see something awesome?

Radiohead just released a new music video for "House of Cards" that was created without using cameras. Instead, they used something called data visualization to create maps of faces and landscapes using pinpoints of light.

In short, it's awesome, and you should take a look at it here. It just went live today.

Henceforth all sports-related posts will be displayed on my new sports blog. You don't actually have to read it if you don't want, but I'm excited to be writing it.

And now, I'm going camping for the weekend.

Seriously, am I doing something wrong? I can't get a job in my dream field, sure, but I can't even get a job in my backup field? What gives?

Good idea: When hungry, make yourself a nice dinner. You can even take the extra step and make something nice. Tonight, I made pork chops and rice. (Genuine. provided the green beans and juice.) I was pretty hungry, and this really hit the spot. Here's an actual picture of what it looked like:

Bad idea: Making a fabulous pork chop dinner when it's 90 degrees outside - and it's 7.30. Standing over the stove for even just 20 minutes seemed like less and less of a good idea as time went on. I probably lost three pounds just standing there sweating. It's gotten so hot in our apartment that the butter in our butter dish is melting on the countertop. Seriously. Take a look:

In closing, I hate summers in Utah, but man were those pork chops good.
