HAMSTERDAM IS MAKING A SHADOW

I've mentioned Meg Myers a few times, but she's never been all that close to the midwest so I could never really plug shows. That's changing in September when she visits Minneapolis, Iowa City, St Louis, and Chicago, as well as a few stops in Texas. I've been riding the Meg Meyers bandwagon for a couple years now, and after having watched her Lollapalooza show via stream, think it'd be well worth the $10-$15 to go see her.

HAMSTERDAM BROKE BOTH ANKLES SAVING ITS DROWNING NEPHEW

This is not yet nearly as entertaining a media fiasco as Manti Teo's fake dead girlfriend, but there is that "yet" part in the first half of this sentence hanging out there. Come on, be a great story. Something like he jumped from the balcony when the crew of Bachelor in Paradise found him sleeping with one of the contestants. ESPN link: USC's Josh Shaw's story of spraining both ankles saving drowning nephew comes under question.

HAMSTERDAM GOT TAKEN OVER BY THE SIMPSONS

HAMSTERDAM IS TEMPLETON RYE TERRITORY, APPARENTLY

From the mothership's excellent feature on 25 maps that explain college football. The usual rules apply.

HAMSTERDAM CAN'T BELIEVE SHE GOT DUMPED

You know how the U.S. is so large, varied, and strange that people say you can spend a lifetime sightseeing and never leave her borders? Well I think China would have to double or triple that notion. That pic there is the unceremonious recent trip to the dump of the famous giant Marilyn Monroe statue in Guigang province (somewhere in Southern China). The picture in the first comment below will give you a better idea of the scale and upskirt-ness she proudly displayed until this year.

HAMSTERDAM IS BIDDING ON THE ORIGINAL SMARTWATCH

Courtesy of The Verge comes this auction for a Hewlett-Packard watch from 1977. It's apparently a prototype, which, I guess, justifies the current $14,000 bid. For a calculator on your wrist. People with loads of money never cease to amaze me.

HAMSTERDAM IS PROJECTING ONTO YOUR WINDSHIELD

Or it could be if Navdy were terrible people that wanted to distract you while driving. As The Verge points out, Navdy is making a tiny projecter to place on your dash to allow your old ass car to have the cool nav features of new cars. I'm pretty excited about the idea, now I just need to convince the wife that I need $500.

HAMSTERDAM IS WEARING ITS SUNDAY BEST

(via) The first preseason NFL game of the year is tonight (Bills v. Giants in the Hall of Fame Game), and while preseason football is a poor substitute for the real thing, it is an excellent reminder that real football is right around the corner. The usual rules apply.

HAMSTERDAM THROWS HARD

There are a lot of reasons that humans are different from the other great apes, reasons that we have come to dominate the planet. But among my favorites is this fact: my son that turned 3 just yesterday throws a baseball harder than any of our ape relatives. A full grown chimp, all 90 pounds of muscle and fury, can't top 20mph on the speed gun. Gorillas do even worse. http://cashp.columbian.gwu.edu/neil-t-roach-evolution-throwing
