Guilt-Free Music

Ever feel guilty about downloading music without paying for it?

Me neither.

But if you do (or even if you don't, I suppose), check out Comfort Stand. Lots of good music and all of it legally free.

Be it far from me to tell someone how to waste their time. Want to knit? Go for it. Love collecting stamps? Knock yourself out.

Want to solve 1,000,000,000 mazes? Better get started.

Actually, first you might want to run out and buy some more printer ink or toner. At about 800 pages for an average black ink cartridge, that will require somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,250,000 cartridges. At twenty bucks or so a pop for plain black for my HP printer, that will set someone back only about twenty-five million dollars to print out all of those mazes, before taxes and excluding sales.

And a billion sheets of paper, you ask? Lets say five dollars for a pack of 500 sheets. That'll only cost an additional ten million. You could always flip them over and print on the back, I suppose.

Or maybe just stick with knitting.

Found But Still Lost

This story is incredible.

At least the kid is lucky now, though the state of his developing sense of morality is on shaky ground.

Politically (In)correct

Want to appear insensitive in a religous sense, yet up-to-date on world events?

Buy and wear this t-shirt.

Makes a good Valentine's Day present.

Happy Valentine's Day

In case you're still looking for a card, here are a few last minute ideas.

Quick Super Bowl Ads Take

This is just for Butter, by the way, since he requested it.

I sat and watched most of the Super Bowl ads online tonight, and in short: what a let down. Only a couple caught my interest, while most were either boring or cheesy (the Budweiser little horsie in the barn video causing the strongest gag reflex).

One that I did like in my own sick, little way was the Michelob Light touch football ad shown during the second quarter.

Classic line: You were open and now you are closed!

I'm not ashamed to say that cracks me up. The doc zapping the fly in the Ameriquest: Hospital video also garnered a chuckle. Sad, I know.

If so inclined, you can also watch all of the ads by quarter through a site put up by AOL Sports. They also have a vote tabulation for the best commercials. I disagree with their number one, but I'm not exactly going on a hunger strike over it. They are just commercials after all, right?

Here Fishy Fishy

This is the best computer animation I've ever seen. Tell me those sharks and that water don't look stunningly real at times.
