April Madness – What’s On My iPod Monday, Apr 5 2010 

Just a quick posting to update you as to what I’m listening to on my iPod at the moment! Some of my picks are popular, some not so much. Hope you find something that YOU like in the process!

Possibility by Lykke Li. This song was played in the movie Twilight Saga: New Moon and I totally fell in love with it. So sombre, so haunting.

Telephone by Lady GaGa FT. Beyonce. Okay okay, everyone is listening to this at the moment. But I love it so much I just had to give it a mention! Plus the video clip is so cool.

Bad Things by Jace Everett. A bloody AMAZING song, this guys voice is pure sex. You may recognize it as the intro theme for the TV series True Blood.

Blue Eyes Blue by Eric Clapton. I have loved this gorgeous song for years and years, and have started playing it again. In my top 10 most loved songs.

Behind Blue Eyes by Limp Bizkit. I guess I’m loving the blue eyes at the moment, huh? But another haunting melody. Everybody knows it as the movie theme for Halle Berry’s Gothika.

More Than Words by Extreme. Relaxes me every time I listen to it. πŸ™‚

American Pie by Don McLean. I couldn’t find an official video, so here’s the best quality clip that I could find!

The Most Beautiful Girl (In The Room) by FOTC: Flight Of The Conchords. EPIC EPIC EPIC!

So many good songs out there, both new and old. There’s just nothing better than tuning the world out and getting absorbed into music that you love! Hope you found a gem in there, or found an old fave that you haven’t listened to in ages. Until next time!

I Surfed, I Stumbled Saturday, Feb 27 2010 

Well, this is just a quick post to show you some of the things I have stumbled across online recently. The weird and the wonderful – truly!

Well, this made me cringe, but I thought the girl kind of deserved it. A guy used a Radio Station (Point) to end his relationship with his girlfriend after finding out she had been cheating on him. The twist was, the girlfriend had found the engagement ring he had bought her and thought he was going to propose – ouch! It’s not nice, and I’d never recommend anyone do this, but hey… kind of entertaining… Listen here.

Brilliant Old Spice Commercial… totally had me in fits of laughter!

Interesting article on nail salons and what some of them are doing unbeknownst to their customers. Apparently they have been refilling the designer brand polish with $2 Dollar Shop brands to cut costs… Totally evil, as the designer brands (such as O.P.I.) have been getting complaints. Plus, the customers are paying for quality and getting CRAP! Read the full article here.

Michael Jackson’s “They Don’t Care About Us” clip, danced to by Prison inmates… Amazing. Watch it here.

Here is a blog for all of you Tila Tequila haters out there (or people who just want to see a social car wreck). This blog breaks down all of the crap Tila has spouted, and aligned it with the truth, other news reports and so on. Damn, this girl liiieeesss. Check out this blog here.

My latest fashion find, thanks to a work colleague, isΒ Shoes Of Prey. This is a website where you can design and buy your own pair of heels – Hot! It’s not cheap (approximately USD$350) but it’s brilliant fun to design your perfect shoes! And if you love them enough, you can buy them!

Here’s the new Robert Pattinson (of Twilight fame) video; an artsy, bizarre clip where he is surrounded by half naked women whilst the camera seems to be having an epileptic fit. Oh well, watch it here – he is still hot! πŸ˜‰

For cuteness factor alone, here is Dory Moments, an edited clip of all the best Dory scenes from the Pixar movie Finding Nemo. “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming swimming…”

I will end with something truly adorable! A news story on an elephant and her best friend, a dog. Watch it here. Will make you feel all warm inside (yeah yeah, I’m a sap!)

That’s enough of my time wasters, but I hope you found something to enjoy! πŸ™‚

Wacky From The Web Friday, Jan 29 2010 

Okay, so I admit, when I get bored I often find myself mindlessly watching clips on YouTube. It was on one such occasion where I stumbled across “Garfunkel and Oates” , a two women musical comedic duo.

Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci are quirky young women that have, between them, dabbled in acting, music and stand-up comedy, and have become an online phenomenon. Their 2-to-3 minute videos on YouTube feature self written songs about everything from dating and sex, to duck-love and pregnant women. These two extremely talented women are amazing. I cried with laughter while listening to some of their songs – especially when complimented by the petite Kate playing a ukulele!

Kate has had cameo appearances in shows like Scrubs, Malcolm in the Middle and How I Met Your Mother.

Riki has been in even more shows, and is quite a good little actress (in my opinion). Her credits include roles on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Heroes, The Big Bang Theory, Bones, Criminal Minds, Nip/Tuck, and even roles in a few movies, such as Changeling.

So between the two of them, they are talented little dabblers. But it is their hilarious, self deprecating, bizarre songs that have me hooked. A selection of their songs that I love the most are:

Pregnant Women Are Smug

Me, You And Steve

Silver Lining

They have many, many more songs than just these three, but you can hunt them out yourself! Take the time to have a look – I promise you will have a bit of a chuckle (at least!) over some of their witty lyrics.
