This Week in…

WorldWideWeb: Wishpot
Remember when you were a kid how you would ‘write’ that christmas list? You’d carefully cut around the toy, whip out that Elmer’s & stick it to construction paper just so Mom, Dad & Santa knew EXACTLY what you wanted. Ok, maybe that was just me. But I still think it was the greatest idea ever… Hence my excitement at Wishpot!!! Add a button to your top toolbar and no matter what website you’re on you can ‘wishpot’ it directly from that page. A little dialog box appears, takes the information, & then you can go right back to surfing BestBuy’s movies w/o ever leaving the page. Plus, my parents & sibs can bookmark my wishlist page and check back when they’re just dying to buy me something! 😉 Oh Joy!

Videos: ACDC
I know it’s so OLD at this point, but I’m still addicted to the ACDC videos of this ‘Biggest Online Dance Battle’. yeayea mandy/miley whatev. I am such a sucker for awesome dancing. Yes, I did love Step Up. Although I haven’t seen Step Up 2 yet, all my fellow dance-obsessed have given it an A+ for music, dance sequences & cheesy plotlines. Anyway, Step Up 2’s Adam Sevani is freaking awesome in these videos. The only thing that would’ve made these better is if Channing Tatum (my future husband) was on the right team.

ps – anyone else watching So You Think You Can Dance?


(First brought to my attention by one of my personal faves: the amazing No Ordinary Rollercoaster writer, Ben. See his post on it here.)


Alright if you really want to see the M&M dance video go here. It’s not worth it. I swears.

Music: Playlist
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I lovelovelove Last.fm – the scrobbling, radio stations, artist listings, videos, free downloads… LOVE. While I’ve nothing new to report on the findings side, some of the tracks on my current playlist are:

The Morning Benders – Damnit Anna
Coldplay – Viva la Vida
Laura Veirs – Galaxies
MetroStation – Control (Don’t go all mileythis,mileythat. Check out the song. If you like it, you do. If you don’t, you don’t.)
Flo Rida – Elevator
Sia – The Girl You Lost to Cocaine
Lupe Fiasco – Streets on Fire

Link Love
I don’t usually do this but as I’ve recently stumbled across some pretty funny writers, I thought I’d give em a shout out.
Charming, but Single – Finding humor in even the most mundane dating occurance, she tells of her life in the single lane with stories we all can relate to.
Kindredly – Addictions to shopping? salsa? adorable dogs? I’m so there!
*hello darling!* – Everybody’s favorite texan sorority girl, Traci Ann, posts random bits a few times a day. She’s always got me laughing and nodding along.
Blog Voyeur Turned Blogwhore – a fellow pale skinned beauty who sometimes makes you wonder if Juno stole all her lines.

hmm… once again I’m reading a crazy amount of blogs by the ladies. Where are the guys? Can you recommend any awesome favorites? I’m only keeping up with so@24, surviving myself & the aforementioned no ordinary rollercoaster. (not that they can’t handle the Blogging Men that Rock My Face Off title all by themselves)

You haven’t been tempted to test out the new beta Last.fm then. There is some nice new features planned for the site, although there is a lot of debate about the proposed new look.

James – beta? I think I tried to setup on that when my laptop was being finicky. Maybe I can still hop on the beta bandwagon. Are you on it? What do you think of it?

allthewine – “I freaked when I saw Channing in Miley and Mandy’s video… that whore! lol.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Apollo & Ben – Loving you guys! Keep the posts coming!

Andrea – I know! I’m obsessed!

Yeh I’m using the Beta. It is subscribers only at the moment, but because I a nosey bugger it was worth £1.50 to see what features they have planned for the future.

It is by no means a working product right now, it is a proper Beta. I posted up a pic here if you’d like to see. (+ here is your profile in Beta).
