How to Productively Spend Your Time

Picture 1Someone on Facebook posted a link to this site called Incredibox and, being the inquisitive person that I am, I clicked through to check it out.  A half hour later, I came to the conclusion that this is in the top 10 of my favorite music websites.  At first I had no idea what it was and I had to play around with it by dragging the little arrows and circle-ish items from the bottom up to the cartoon guys but then I realized that I was making my own beatbox.  I could add elements of instruments, percussion, chorus, effects and more.  You can mix it up move them around and create totally original sounds.  Mer and I spent a good part of our days playing with this.  Yay, bi-coastal, global fun!

Post Script. Def try the shuffle mode.

I’m Sorry, Keep Doing What?

I’m not even sure how “keep f–king that chicken” even made sense in the context, but I’m pretty sure that his friends bet him that he wouldn’t say it on air.  And then he did.  Pay up suckas. This whole thing reminds me of that episode of How I Met Your Mother where Barney bet Robin that she wouldn’t say “nipple” or “I’m a dirty, dirty girl.”  So, this Fox news anchor did the same thing…but worse/better.  Only on Fox guys, only on Fox.
