Honestly, don't know--good question. I know that Mike and I have similar music interests, so it's stuff along those lines.

The facility website says the following:  

Prohibited:

  • IPODS, MP3 players, Laptops, Pagers, computers, DVD’s, PDA’s, Walkman’s, Video games, Camera’s, Televisions, Digital Readers (Kindle), Smart Watches ( Apple Watch, Garmin, etc.), Fit Bits.  Phones are taken too. 

So, they are going to pull their electronics from them but it doesn't mention "analog items" like a book.  Personally, I sent him all analog items including the original screen, a mini Etch-a-Sketch.  Hopefully that will get through. I also sent a deck of cards.  

 

The facility website does not go as far as to say what can be sent.  Cigs are allowed inside.  Vape and roll-your-own are not. 

The site specifically says Speedos are not allowed for men.  Is the Borat banana hammock a Speedo?

Thanks, John. If in doubt, first read the directions, right?

Anybody know what size t-shirt he wears?

I would say probably XL.  He's the non-hairy one.  I'm the hairy one and I wear L/XL

Xl for sure. He's as big as me.

Imagine having a full arsenal sent to you and nobody else in the facility having a mere sidearm.

Or those little water pistols you get at Walmart 6/$1. They conceal in pockets quite well, with the sometimes side effect of looking like you wet yourself. Worth it.

Someone should send him a turbo with a chra in need of a rebuild and a rebuild kit with a note that reads, taking on 2 challenges head on at once.

George Orwells "1984" somehow appeared in my possession about a day in.  It quickly became my replacement for the beer to get me to sleep.  I started reading more after that and Kurt Vonnegut's "Bagombo Snuffbox" was the next book i read.
