Great websites for a laugh:
awkwardfamilyphotos.com exactly like it sounds
theonion.com check out the headlines.
failblog.com terrible mistakes in photos, news, etc:
such as a cotton ball display in a pharmacy that says "Celebrate Black History month"
icanhascheezburger.com cats are taking over the world, one lolcat at a time
overheardinnewyork.com sometimes raunchy, but sometimes funny eavesdropping
roflrazzi.com hard to explain photos and captions
Some killer new CD's (bet you've never heard of them!):
Veckatimest by Grizzly Bear (sort of a Jeff Buckley-Queen-late Beatles sound)
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix by Phoenix: sounds like indie rockabilly with pop bounce...happy music! Sort of like if Paul McCartney/Wings (don't mock me!) and the Stray Cats met up with the Indigo Girls and jammed.
Baroque Guitar by Julian Bream (want to pretend you're at Starbucks while stuck at home? this is sort of atmosphere music)
Day & Age by The Killers (modern but sounds a bit like Thompson Twins but less techno)
