Surf the Web in Word

I'm sure I've linked to this before, but it's worth another visit. If you work in an office where people can see your screen, and you want to surf the web without being obvious about it, try workfriendly.net.
It disguises your browser as Microsoft Word, suppresses images and spits the content out as plain text. Here's the link for this site: http://workfriendly.net/browse/Office2003Blue/torontomike.com.

Simpsons Scenes and their Reference Movies - As a Simpsons fan and movie fan, I love this collection of 66 scenes from The Simpsons beside the movie scene to which they refer.

The Best TV Theme Songs
Published by Toronto Mike on August 19, 2007 @ 18:57 in Links to External Web Sites, Television
When John From Cincinnati got canned earlier this week, I shared the opening credits of that show because it featured a very cool tune by Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros. That got me thinking about television theme songs that are too cool to be confined to the small screen and are good enough to stand alone.
Sometimes a song is a created for a tv show and sometimes it's simply licensed, as is the case with most of the songs below. However you slice it, here are my favourite television theme songs.
- Von Bondies' "C'mon C'mon" from Rescue Me
- Joe Cocker's "A Little Help From My Friends" from The Wonder Years
- Foo Fighters' "Next Year" from Ed
- Waylon Jennings' "Good Ol' Boys" from The Dukes of Hazzard
- Steve Carlisle's "WKRP in Cincinnati" from WKRP in Cincinnati
- Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros' "Johnny Appleseed" from John From Cincinnati
- John Sebastian's "Welcome Back" from Welcome Back, Kotter
- Alabama 3's "Woke Up This Morning" from The Sopranos
- Gary Portnoy's "Everybody Knows Your Name" from Cheers
- Joey Scarbury's "Believe It Or Not" from The Greatest American Hero
An honourable mention goes to the three Who songs used for various CSI shows. The Who songs are great but having not seen a minute of the shows that use them, I felt weird putting them on this list. All ten shows above are actually shows I watched and enjoyed.
