Welcome to the PC&G blog!

My name’s Liz, and I scour the Web for cool sites — not all of them make it into our weekly video package, so we’re posting them right here. I’ll post my finds daily.

I Love Blocks — I’m a sucker for handmade jewelry, and these unique block designs by Irina Blok are my new favorites. Her “Click Necklace” is absolutely brilliant (not to mention PERFECT for PCG). I want one! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBM854BTGL0

Suggested By Ninou from NJ:

When Busey Attacks — Best Oscar moment EVER! Gary Busey attacking Ryan Seacrest, Jennifer Garner and Laura Linney on the red carpet. I think the best part is how freaked out Seacrest is by the entire thing. You would think “American Idol” would have taught him how to deal with “crazy.” http://teevstee.com/

Duck and Monkey Travels — So I’m pretty positive I did something like this back in kindergarten… But it seems to be a trend online People taking inanimate objects and taking pictures of them all around the world — It’s a cute idea, and my two all-time favorites are Monkey Travel and Duck Travels. http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1761853

Air Poo — What can I say, It’s a toilet with a heated seat, a MacBook docking slot, multi-touch flusher, iPod dock and an integrated surround sound system. I think Apples gone a little too far this time. http://www.digthewig08.com/

Water Music — Here’s a site that’s extremely serene! It’s got nothing but video of some guy playing the water glasses. Sounds kind of lame, BUT IT’S NOT. This guy’s got some awesome skills. http://free-online-games.nu/alphabet.html

Suggested By Bethany from Minnesota:

Cooking By Numbers — Can’t think of what to make for dinner? Let cooking by numbers help. You tell them what you have in your pantry, and they provide a receipt tailored just for you. A cute idea, but the list of possible ingredients is pretty limited, so it doesn’t really look like you can make TOO much. http://www.popgive.com/2008/02/skeletal-systems-of-popular-cartoon.html

A Brief Essay on Love — It’s like paper dolls for the sad and pathetic... JUST KIDDING. Here’s your chance to design yourself an outfit. Tons of fun… and there’s even an EMO boy you can clothe with a shaggy ‘do and thick black plastic glasses. http://www.haveahearton.com/

Twisted Balloon Fashions — Unless you’re Vince Vaughn and your trying to score a hottie, balloon animals are pretty lame. BUT balloon dresses are AWESOME. Here’s some pics of girls sporting inflatable dresses. Bet they can’t sit down in those. http://www.justsayhi.com/bb/view2/countries

Carved Guitars — If I had the skills, I would definitely be a musician... and I would DEFINITELY rock out with one of these awesome guitars (the Phoenix Phlame is incredible). http://porotto.deviantart.com/art/dress-up-EMO-girl-game-36974233

Titanic: The Sequel — Remember the end of the original movie when Leonardo DiCaprio falls down into the sea? Well, Jack’s back in this awesome YouTube mashup. I think I saw a clip from “Austin Powers” and “Encino Man” . http://youtube.com/watch?v=utOS0ZetVE8&feature=related

Feed Britney — I feel a little bad posting this, in light of her recent hospitalization — BUT, if you only look at the left side of the screen, it’s really more like playing a matching game than exploiting the hardships of a fallen pop star. http://www.dribbleglass.com/monopoly/

The Super Bowl is coming up — GO Big Blue!!! — and what better way to get excited for the big day, than by taking a peek at some of my FAVORITE Super Bowl ads of the past. — Liz

Banned Budweiser Commercial — Here’s why you should NEVER hide behind the bar while the bartender is not looking, no matter how good of an idea it seems like at the time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4O4f6FKYyc

Mean Jo Green — Who could forget this classic! Okay, so I wasn’t even born when it aired, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling nostalgic. http://www.youtube.com/adblitz
