Fancast — The BEST free TV site out there!! This site gives you everything and anything you want to know about TV shows and the movies, from cast bios to full episodes of shows like “Arrested Development,” “Family Guy” and “Doogie Howser M.D” — YES, I had the biggest crush on Neil Patrick Harris back in the day, when life was simple and Vinnie Delpino was his BFF. http://www.mcfly2015.com/

Best Use of Watermelon, Ever — This looks amazing, and I can’t wait to try it. What I wouldn’t give to be basking in the sun on a beach with one of these. (For those of you who are under age, try using ginger ale instead.) http://anomalies-unlimited.com/Jackson.html

Stuff On My Cat — I’m not going to lie -- I’m getting extremely tired of sites dedicated to nothing but pictures of cats doing stupid things. BUT that’s not stopping me from loving this one!

Pilot Inspektor Coco Kyd — The site houses the 20 most bizarre celebrity baby names out there! I’m really starting to think that having an abundance of cash gives you the right to torment your child with a dumb name. I think my favorite is Moxie Crimefighter — and sadly this is the worst one out there. http://electiontees.com/

Keybr — This games pretty addictive, but it¹s also teaching you how to type. Sadly, I’m not that good at it, but I¹m going to keep trying! http://haha.nu/amazing/nathan-sawaya-the-lego-artist-2

Guess Your Number — This site claims it can guess what number you're thinking of — and I guarantee it will BLOW YOUR MIND! No matter how many ways I tried to trick it, it repeatedly got it right each and every time. Spooky! http://www.thisonethatone.com/

Hot Dog Bush — With the elections coming up, GWB is going to have to start looking for a new gig. Well, not anymore! Here’s a fun little flash game that’s figured it out for him (I suggest watching the intro for the game at least once, it’s very cute.) http://pem.org/origami/

Killer Clips — A huge video database of movie quotes, with everything from “Ferris Bueller's Day Off” , “Army of Darkness” and “Better Off Dead” . http://www.firstshowing.net/2007/12/24/best-19-movies-you-didnt-see-in-2007/

Crack or Candy? — The new packaging for Hershey’s Icebreakers gum looks suspiciously like crack cocaine. I can just see it now — a group of kids getting jumped by the fuzz for freshening their breath. http://waiterrant.net/
