Links can be entertaining. To prove this point, I provide you with two links that I think will keep you entertained:

  1. Loop Labs. This site allows you to create mixes with about 100 different loops they offer. It was built for a contest set up by Macromedia and Sonic Foundry, although I’m not sure if they won. This one stands out from similar sites. I think the coolest thing is that you can record what you’ve done. It is very impressive and kept me entertained for about 30 minutes.

  2. Angola Prison Rodeo. This is a different kind of entertainment. This rodeo is held at Angola Prison in Louisiana and involves only inmates. My friend Dan, who goes to school in Tulane and witnessed this, informed me about it. Here are my two favorite events.

    Convict Poker It’s the ultimate poker game, and even winning has a price. Four inmate cowboys sit at a table in the middle of the arena playing a friendly game of poker. Suddenly, a wild bull is released with the sole purpose of unseating the poker players. The last man remaining seated is the winner.
    Guts & Glory A chit (poker chip) is tied to the meanest, toughest Brahma bull available. The object here is to get close enough to the bull in order to snatch the chit.
    According to Dan the chit was worth $500 this time and a man was thrown 20 feet in the air and landed on his head. Youch. The next rodeo is April 20th. Road trip anyone?
