UnravelTheMusic.com is a new-ish social networking website for music lovers, but this one has a fun spin to it. As the name implies, this site is a social community where users can “unravel the music” and post the meanings of songs, rate other people’s interpreted meanings and also comment on songs.
I love this idea, because there’s always a song I hear on the radio that I just can’t dissect the meaning of the lyrics. One such example that comes to mind is pretty much anything from the band “Hurt.” There is so much emotion in their music, but what it really means could be anyone’s guess.
Maybe you have an idea of what some of “Hurt’s” songs mean. If you do, go to Unravel and post it so I can find out.
I think anyone with the slightest imagination has noticed at one point in time that an object they’re looking at kinda looks like it has a face. I love that!
Faces in Places is a fun blog that posts photos of objects people have sent in that they think look like they have faces. These are great. I always think a lot of car front ends look like faces. So go take a look or send in some pics of your own if you find a face in some place.
Some of them are hard to tell sometimes, which reminds me of my brother, because he used to always see faces in things when we were kids and it looked nothing like a face to me.
I think rich people eventually run out of “normal” things to waste their cash on, and just end up buying anything after a few years of living wealthy.
Could you imagine spending close to $400 on an apple carrier? It does nothing else special other than carry your apple. Or how about a platinum encased, diamond encrusted purse for $1.63 million dollars?
It would be nice to be able to throw money away like that wouldn’t it? It be nicer if the people who buy these things would donate to a better cause, like me ;). Just kidding.
If you’re rich and need some ideas of things to buy, or you’re poor like me and just want to see what kind of wacky things only rich people can afford, check out MaybeYouShouldntBuyThat.com. You’ll find everything from $12,000 perfumes to $3,000 gold vibrators.
I absolutely love the idea of Messed Up Dreams. Dreams are always so wacky and confusing. It’s too bad they’re so easily forgotten.
When I was in school for 3D animation and design, I used to write down every dream I had as soon as I woke up so that I wouldn’t forget. Then I would figure out ways to use them for my school projects. I came up with some wild stuff too.
One dream I remember well from childhood, which actually became a reoccuring dream for a short period of time (do I need counseling?), took place at my grandparents house up in the mountains. I only remember a small amount of it now, but I was being chased through her house by a bunch of Indians. Then out of nowhere, I was on a motorcycle and riding it up her staircase to the second floor trying to escape. I don’t remember the transition, but all of a sudden I was hopping from rooftop to rooftop on my motorycle, still being chased by Indians, except now I was in the desert and each building was miles away from the other. That’s all I remember.
I haven’t had a dream that I remember for quite a while now, but I’ve noticed that I usually get some cool dreams after starting something creative, like working in Photoshop or creating a new website. Or when I stay up late learning something new, like some confusing .htaccess stuff.
Have you had any weird dreams lately?
If you’re paying your kid’s way through college like Van Wilder, you better take a closer look at the classes they’ve been taking because they might be milking it on courses like “Learning how to argue with Judge Judy” or “Learning the Elvish language of “Lord of the Rings.”
OnlineUniversities.com put together an extensive list of 100 Hilarious College Courses that Really Exist from big name colleges and universities across the country.
Here’s a few that caught my eye:
- Invented Languages: Klingon and Beyond
- Harry Potter Lit
- European Witchcraft
- The American Vacation
- Alien Sex
- The Science of Superheroes
- The Amazing World of Bubbles
- Lego Robotics
- Star Trek and Religion
- Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang
- Underwater Basket Weaving
- The Art of Walking
- Getting Dressed
That’s only 12 I’ve pulled out of the list. Some of these classes do sound like they could be a lot of fun and probably help make learning a lot of fun. Others just look like a huge waste of money though. Check out the article for the course descriptions and and what colleges you can find them at.
If you’ve ever smoked some of that sticky icky, the Ganj, Devils grass, or Marijuana, you’ve probably had some crazy ideas. While you were high, you probably thought it was one of the best ideas ever until you woke up sober and realized it was actually the stupidest idea ever.
If you check out HighDEAS you’ll get a taste of both stupid and some actual really good ideas that people have come up while they were high.
“I was thinking…When a seeing-eye-dog poops, who the hell picks it up??? Not the blind dude, right?”
That was a good one.
Or how about this one; “Wtf kind of word is “grocery”? It doesn’t sound appealing at all.”
There are tons of interesting ideas on this site. I think this could be a goldmine for inventors, video game producers and movie script writers.. For me, it’s just plain entertainment.
There are all sorts of news trends websites out there, but none that I know of that really takes those trends and plots them on an interactive map to show correlation.
News Dots will display various trending topics in the news. You’ll notice larger clusters around the hottest topics.
The fun part about this is how various stories related to each other if you dig into each cluster. For example, I noticed two terms that were connected; Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harvey Milk. As it turns out, The Terminator has created a day honoring the late Harvey Milk in California.
If you want to find out how Micheal Jackson, “this is it” and Paul Anka are connnected, you’ll just have to visit the site for yourself.
Whoozy is a cool new search engine that lets you search for someone by their first and last name or even their nickname, or online persona, if you know it. If you want to refine your search, you can add a keyword, such as a city or state.
Whoozy will start to search all over the place and give you options to search throughout social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Myspace or just the big three search engines and blog networks.
If there are any related images or videos, there’s a tab for that stuff too and if any email address come up in the search, you’ll see them show up in the “personal” tab. It gets to become a bit “stalker-ish” doesn’t it?
I think this is a great idea though. When you’re looking for business contacts or just some old friends from childhood, this could come in handy.
A search for my name didn’t pull up everything that I know is out there though, so it looks like it could use some refining. Those pictures that show up for my name when I had long hair are hilarious. All the guys in the office said I looked like a pimp.
If you’re the sexually adventurous type and like to have a little bit of public fun, I Just Made Love is the site for you.
If you’ve just had sex somewhere, even in your own home, (it doesn’t need to be out in public, but that makes this site a little boring, I think) add your marker to the map letting the world know that you’ve just done the nasty only 25 feet away from them.
You can easily add your marker to the map, add a comment, include the positions that you’ve used, and then you can choose an indoor or outdoor option.
If you’re the curious type, you can click on any of the mid-coitus bunny rabbit icons to find out the almost exact location of the sexual act and what positions they used. You can filter the map to only those who’ve had sex in the past hour or you can look back as far as 24 hours, a week or a month.
So how does this nifty little tool help you or make our lives easier? I guess it could come in handy before sitting down on that park bench.
You’ve probably already seen the People of Walmart, after it was plastered all over the internet a couple weeks ago. If you haven’t, check it out now. It’s funny because it’s true… 🙁
Hot on the heels of the white trash/redneck fad that People of Walmart created comes Redneck for Life. There’s a new photo uploaded each day, so make sure to visit the site regularly. You can also vote on each photo by giving it a rating from 1-10 beers.
If you have any photos of your own redneckiness, submit them. There’s even a photo contest going on right now, so send in some white trash pics and cross your fingers for an Amazon gift card.
