I’ve always loved Sade so I was glad to find her new video posted by a friend on Facebook… what a great song.   And how in the heck can she still look as beautiful as she did 25 years ago?

I’m currently testing out the new, awesome, killer Bose Noise Canceling Headphones I got for Christmas.  I highly recommend these for anyone that loves great sound and who wants to block out background noise.  It’s amazing.

I’m using my Pandora station to give the headphones a test run, so I thought why not post my bookmarked songs?  This should give you an idea of my taste in music (read: all over the map).  If you want to check out my stations just go to my Pandora profile.

This’ll teach you to be careful about which friends you let house-sit while you’re on vacation…  This poor guy came home to what at first seemed like tons of wrapped gifts.   Then you see the vacuum.  Then the pillows, the curtain, the toilet, the fridge, the contents inside the fridge – EVERYTHING in his apartment is wrapped.  Down to the cushions on the couch and the letters in the mailbox.

These people must have spent hours and hours on this!  But it’s awesome.  Here’s the video:

Holiday lights combined with Guitar Hero.  Doesn’t get much more impressive than this does it?  To read how it was done check out Mashable.

OK so Animal doesn’t exactly remember the lyrics correctly.  This is awesome.  (And who doesn’t like chicken backup singers?)


Cookie Monster shows Ella the correct way to eat a cookie – OM NOM NOM NOM!!  Rocketboom’s field correspondent Ella Morton heads over to Sesame Street in celebration of their 40th season to talk with a few furry inhabitants.

Slow news day?  Maybe, maybe not.  Anyway this made me laugh.

A chewed remote control, a dog, and $62.50 less in the bank account. For Greg Stroke, this could only mean one thing: his dog had purchased 5,000 Xbox points — worth $62 — while he and his girlfriend were asleep. Stroke saved his credit card information on his remote control to make it easier to buy video games using Microsoft Xbox points — so easy, in fact, that a dog could do it.

When the dog chewed the remote, the points were bought. “i just wish they’d make it a little harder to purchase points,” Stroke lamented.

Book of Odds is an interesting new site that lets you search for odds on just about anything.  For example, not that this is earth shattering but apparently golf is safer than mountain biking.

1 in 644
The odds a golfer will be injured while playing golf in a year are 1 in 644 (US, 2006).

1 in 838.7
The odds a mountain biker will be injured while mountain biking in a year are 1 in 838.7 (US, 2006).

But you should be much more worried when you golf than when you’re out in a thunderstorm:

1 in 1,230,000
The odds a person will be injured by lightning in a year are 1 in 1,230,000 (US, 2003).
