Link: Johnny Cash, American V: A Hundred Highways

LinkJohnny Cash, American V: A Hundred Highways - AOL is streaming this entire new release from the Man in Black. If you're a fellow Firefox user, you'll have to install the ActiveX Plug-in or use IE. You've got to hear this disc, especially his cover of Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind".

I think Cash could have sang the alphabet song and I've have dug it. As I wrote upon his death, the Man in Black really struck a chord with me. He sang for the working man and downtrodden. He sang for the prisoners and the hurt.

Link: Family Guy's Greatest Hits

LinkFamily Guy's Greatest Hits - Somebody pieced together the best scenes from "Family Guy". The Kool Aid man is here, Peter's fight with the chicken, and that priceless scene when the doctor tells him he's fat.

Link: City of Toronto Archives

LinkCity of Toronto Archives - "Every generation lives in a different Toronto. Someone lived in your home before you—who were they? What did a city street look like before cars and electric lights?" If you've ever lived in Toronto, you'll find yourself getting lost here. I recommend starting with these virtual exhibits.

My YouTube Favourites

videoHave you noticed yourself visiting YouTube more and more often these past few months? I've certainly been watching more videos over there, and if you look hard enough, you're bound to find some gems.

Below are some of my favourite videos currently available at YouTube. As I review my selection, I see there's an awful lot of Canadiana here, so it's fitting I share this on a long Canada Day weekend.

Unable to find a single reference to Bill Barilko, I took it upon myself to upload a few clips I've collected from other sites. He's our Buddy Holly, immortalized by the Hip's "Fifty Mission Cap", and scorer of the 1951 Stanley Cup winner for my beloved Maple Leafs. Every year, his legend grows. Here is Bill Barilko's last goal.

Update: Here are a few more gems that either came to me later or were suggested in the comments.

These are a few of my favourites. Please share yours in the comments below.

Link: Andre's NES Emulator

LinkAndre's NES Emulator - The screen's a little small and the sound isn't very good, but it's still a wonderful trip down memory lane playing these old Nintendo games. I have fond memories of the simpler, 8-bit NES days when my favourite game was probably Ice Hockey. Sadly, Ice Hockey isn't on Andre's list of emulated NES games.

Link: Free Web photo editor

LinkFree Web photo editor - This is a handy web-based app for resizing, cropping, rotating and touching up your photos. I gave it a quick test drive and other than the annoying 2MB size limit which will prevent me from actually using it, it was pretty slick.

Link: Beware the Rogue Helicopter Pilot

LinkPsycho complains to city about "rogue helicopter pilot" - This is too good to be true. I could watch it over and over and over again and never get bored. If our city council meetings were like the ones in Charlotte, I'd be glued to Cable 10.

LinkLIVE TV ONLINE TV - This link is almost too good to be true. Here you can stream 120 television stations live. It uses an ActiveX Control to embed Windows Media into a web page, so Firefox won't play it without a plugin and even then you'll have to make sure that the setting for OBJ-TABS is disabled in your Adblock extension. This might be the one time it makes sense to use IE.
