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.

We Need Girlfriends — Every once in a while you stubble upon something so fantastic. You HAVE to check out this site. http://www.colourlovers.com/blog/2008/04/22/all-120-crayon-names-color-codes-and-fun-facts/

Real Life Iron Man — I think that says it all, and the guy that thought of it is AWESOME! http://www.dinoballs.com/

Geek Gear — I’m not really sure how I feel about this one. It’s a pair of pants with a wireless keyboard built right into them. Seems like a novel idea for a super geek, but from these pics, it just looks like this guy’s hand is permanently attacked to his nether region. http://weedcollege.com/potman/

The Smart-Ass Guide to the USA — This one was created by Dan Meth (the genius who brought us “Internet People” ), and it’s a simple flash animation exploiting the stereotypes across the states. But seriously, not ALL Jersey girls have big hair and listen to Bon Jovi … it’s a select few that give us a bad name. http://break.com/index/the-waldo-ultimatum.html

Groove is in the Heart — I have to admit, I’m 100% jealous of all the guys over at Digg. Not that I don’t have the best job in the world, but from what I gather from this video, it just looks like a lot of fun to work there. Come on, how many other companies can you burst into a group song and dance?! http://www.cracked.com/article_16133_5-historical-figures-who-died-weirdest-deaths.html

The Man Registry — Wedding season is coming up, so here’s a site that’s set up EXACTLY like a bridal shower registry … but with products geared toward the man of the house! You can buy the groom-to-be a 5-liter kegorator, a 200 piece tool set or even an iPod grill. http://www.prankbot.com/

Who Should Redesign? — As we all know, there is good design on the web, and then there’s BAD design . I’m sure you’ve visited sites that drive you ABSOLUTELY crazy because you can’t figure out how to navigate them! This one’s similar to “Hot or Not” but instead of voting on the facially unfortunate, you get to decided which sites have the best design. http://www.weebls-stuff.com/games/scissors+paper+stone/

Spam Turns 30 — Happy Birthday SPAM! Wonder if the company will be celebrating by cracking open one of the original cans and chowin’ down… YUCK! http://www.evtv1.com/player.aspx?itemnum=1861

Zombie Emergency Procedure — Just in case you don’t know what to do in case of a zombie attack… DON’T USE FIRE! http://justcreativedesign.com/2008/04/08/creative-photographs/

Independent Comedy Network — Their tag line is “Comedy for the ‘reasonably’ intelligent,” and I love it. They have a ton of original content but my personal favorites are W4N News and ICN Shorts — Some of them can be a little corny, but what can I say, I like the cheese. http://www.you-are-beautiful.com/EndPage.html

Find Your Geek — A dating site for the overly intelligent and self-proclaimed geeks. Just sign up and start meeting people with the same interests as you. http://www.snurfy.com/fun-with-food/

Camel Toads — I’m not a big fan of advice columns, but this is the funniest one I’ve ever seen. One women woman writes in cause she thinks her nephew has a drug problem after she found a note that said he was going to the local pool to “scout out some camel toads.” Now, as funny as that might sound, the BEST part is that of the adviser. I won’t give it away, so check it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GSatlDrPNkE

UPDATED: Face in Hole — One of my favorite sites has added a new feature to their repertoire. Now you can also add text bubbles! http://wiibuilder.com/

Copy Machine Music — I’m not sure if I love this idea, or if it scares the hell out of me. It’s a CD with the sounds of Xerox machines on it. But it’s even creepier that there are that many different types of Xerox machines, resulting in a CD with multiple tracks. You can review the tracks online, so no need to actually purchase it.http://codgy.com/michigan-winter-ice-waves/

Bob Ross — What better way to end the week than by watching Bob Ross paint? Really, who doesn’t love him! My favorite part is when he makes “happy little trees.” http://fenyu.org/human-creative-painting/

Street Art — A group of young artists, who go by the name 6emeia, are beautifying the streets of San Paulo, BrazilŠ and the results are fantastic. It’s not your everyday graffiti, but these animated storm drains are extremely cute. http://www.jmtb02.com/flash/4secondfuryce.swf

Dudeism — If you’ve never seen the Big Lebowski, then I highly suggest you see it before checking this one out (NOT just because its one of the BEST movies ever, but this site will make a lot more sense if you do). Dudeism, the “slowest growing religion in the world.” Now I want a White Russian! http://www.officegamespot.com/officegames/appleshooter.htm

It’s Raining McCain — I am so disturbed! Here’s is the 3rd video by the McCain Girls, this time they’re singing “It’s Raining McCain” — But these girls are SO serious, it’s fantastic — someone of any party could appreciate this one. http://www.iambetterthanu.com/2008/04/07/i-need-a-keg-orator-on-my-wedding-registry/

Douchebag Products — A list of the top 10 products that are made specifically for douchebags. Not really sure if I agree with #10 though. http://www.customizedgirl.com/blog/?p=73

Tanning Lotion Gone Bad! — The TOP 10 reasons why you shouldn’t tan! http://www.soothbrush.com/movie-lego-scenes/

Is the Baby Drinkin’ the Blood? — Stupidity at it’s finest!! http://www.huragames.com/play-672-Mastermind.html

Flock of Mullets — See if you can beat this mastermind! The goal of the game is to correctly guess the color sequence. You get 10 guesses and very few hints. It’s hard but definitely possible — I got it right in 6 tries! http://www.phatfusion.net/googledrive/

Twhirl — An awesome third party Twitter application that lets you update your Tweets right from your desktop. Best part is, you can shorten URL’s, upload pics and even simultaneously post updates to your Pownce and Jaiku accounts. http://www.mp3gle.net/

How Many Cannibals Could You Feed? — I can feed 9! It’s a morbid quiz, but pretty fun. http://www.wigglesdogwigs.com/

Be My Bra — I’m an advocate for breast cancer awareness, so I was ecstatic when I ran across this awesome site sponsored by Mylifetime.com. It’s a virtual “Hands Across America,” and all you have to do is create your animated self to join the chain! It’s pretty fun and simple. They also have a petition to help stop “drive thru” mastectomies, which are sending women home from the hospital mere hours after undergoing major surgery. http://www.salomonsson.se/siberia/

Polls Boutique — If you’re addicted to taking polls, as I am, then check this one out. They’ve got TONS of polls, posted daily. Guaranteed to keep you busy for hours! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxkuYeERt1c

Wiki Answer — Need an answer to a burning question? Well this site’s got an answer to everything, even something as dumb as, “Does drinking vinegar right after sex prevent pregnancy?” Whoever asked that riveting question is a PURE genius! http://emailfromgrandma.com/

Million Dollar Homepage — I wish I came up with this idea when I was 21! Alex Tew from the UK developed the Million Dollar Home page back in 2005. His goal: to sell one million pixels of advertising space for $1 per pixel. Seems like a hoax, right!? Nope. And he’s even reached his goal! So now this 21-year-old bloke is rolling in the dough, buying all the new socks he’s ever wanted. http://www.westminster.gov.uk/environment/streetcareandcleaning/satlav.cfm
