At the other end of the bay on Thursday, Oscar-like aspirations will be openly flaunted at San Francisco's Herbst Theatre when the Webby Awards are given out for top Internet sites. At the tender age of three, the Webbies have accumulated a star-studded roster of judges including X-Files diva Gillian Anderson, David Bowie, Francis Ford Coppola, Chasing Amy director Kevin Smith, and ubiquitous bag designer Kate Spade all members of the industry group International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS). IADAS chose the best within 22 categories, so what's left is 110 nominees rubbing sweaty palms awards night hoping to bring the coveted trophies home.
EBay Auction of the Week:
"18 year old Asian jock selling some of my clean underwear. Ive had these military cotton briefs a few years. I wore them while hiking, and camping, mountain climbing with my 3 best friends. These military briefs are mens size 30. I like them and they are broken in good. My aunt says I have to cleanout my drawers so they are available to you. I know you will like my underpants. The waistband holds good while the cotton pouch is comfy . . . Guaranteed satisfaction. . . . "
