December 19, 2008 – Gift Guide Day 3, Oily Ornaments, and Call for Artists

Today's gift giving guide is completely self-serving - I'm in the process of getting some lower-costs t-shirts and stickers made, but in the mean-time, why not brighten your loved ones' lives with a bit of cheer from the Venangago-go shop?  

You have until December 28th to submit your ideas for the Top 10 of 2008 – Nominated your favorite arts and culture related happenings of 2008 to be complied on December 31st.  (You don’t have to submit 10 – even one is fine, list the event when it happened, where it happened, and a brief note explaining why it’s worthy)
