Website: "Check-in" your sexual encounters

DID SHE LIKE IT? >>>

As a fresh-faced co-ed, sometimes you just need action. You can't blame it on puberty now, but why should you? You're a free adult.

That cute brunette from Environmental Studies is standing outside RiekeScience Center. You say, "Hello." You are a language and literature major, and she asks if Dostoevsky is a brand of vodka. But she's close. Right?

Hooking up doesn't require common interests or even the same IQ range. It does require you to be responsible. Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest wants you wake up the next morning smelling like flowers, not stinking of treachery. The organization has built a new website www.WhereDidYouWearIt.com, dedicated to promoting safe sex and normalizing condom use.  

Last week as part of National Condom Week, PPGNW distributed 55,000 condoms to Northwest community colleges and universities, including Green River Community College, Pacific Lutheran University, Pierce College - Puyallup, Tacoma Community College, The Evergreen State College and the University of Washington - Tacoma campus. The condoms include a QR code that directed users to its website that - similar to other geo-location services like Foursquare or Facebook Places - allow someone to "check-in" their safe sex activity. 

You should "check-in" with www.wheredidyouwearit.com after you hook up with Miss Green, but don't be surprised if you are not the Mayor.

Blog: On the road with the Art*o*mat®

Corky and Art*o*mat® bask in the sunshine before all of downtown Tacoma, The T-Dome and LeMay Car Museum. Photo courtesy of ourepicartomatroadtrip.blogspot.com/

ROAD TRIP! >>>

It was a sad day when downtown Tacoma contemporary art gallery BKB & Company turned off the lights this past December. It was even sadder to see the Art*o*mat® art vending machine go. BKB owners Corky and Victoria couldn't find a new home in Tacoma for the machine. Therefore, they are returning the machine to its creator, Clark Whittington, in Winston-Salem, NC.

Being that Corky and Victoria lean on the creative side of life, they decided to drive the Art*o*mat® to North Carolina - "roaming gnome" style, stopping to take pictures of the machine in front of roadside attractions along the way. 

And they are blogging their trip, too.

Follow their adventure on the Our Epic Art*o*mat® Road Trip blog here.  The blog is live even though they don't back out of the driveway until Monday.
