Music Videos From the 80's :: Over 1,400 Videos - This is a pretty cool collection. The more I revisit the 80s the more I fear it was a solid decade of crap. At least 99% of it was crap. "So Alive" from Love and Rockets was pretty good though, and you can watch the video at this link.

Extortr - This is an amazing idea. Unfortunately, the most efficient way to blackmail in the world is only a joke... so far.

You're Pitiful - Weird Al Yankovich - Weird Al takes on James Blunt's overplayed "You're Beautiful". This link is directly to the MP3, so you might want to save the link to your PC and play it from there. Of course, if you're not a Weird Al guy, you're gonna hate this so fuggetaboutit completely and move on.

Musicovery - I should warn you before you click this link that you'll likely spend a great deal of time at Musicovery sampling tunes and playing with the settings. It's a very cool interface.

Big Spanish Castle - Stare at the dot for 30 seconds then, without moving your eyes, move the mouse over the image.

Hallelujah - My entries about Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" are several. References to the song have made it into nineteen entries. This link, sent to me by Jill, includes many covers of Cohen's classic.
Sadly, Gord Downie's version isn't there, but Imogen Heap's is. It was recorded for the season finale of The O.C. and was the topic of discussion last night while Jeff Buckley's version played. I'm going to listen to it right now.
