We all know about IMDB (Internet Movie Database) where you can find out tons of information on movies, actors and films. Now, I’m bringing you IMCDB (Internet Movie Cars Database) where you can learn everything you want to about the cars that are in the movies that you love.

Odd Music

Odd Music

I must be on a music kick this week. Actually it is probably because it is spring. I am doing a lot of house cleaning and I listen to lots of music while I clean.

Unusual Phobias

Unusual Phobias

I’ve brought you sites devoted to phobias before, but not like this one. These phobias are not psychologically recognized, but after looking at the list and the number of submissions, some of them definitely should be. There is also a link to a list of psychologically recognized phobias. You can find it under that large red print that reads “A Different Kind of Phobia List” if you… Continue reading

Pandora

Big Eye in the Sky

Big Eye in the Sky

For this site, you need to have either Java or QuickTime installed on your computer. It’s well worth it, believe me! These are amazing panoramas brought to you by Ed Fink. He does his photography from a helicopter and just “photoshops” the helicopter out, so it doesn’t spoil the panorama.

There are several ways to check these out. You can use the scroll boxes… Continue reading

Husband on Strike

Urban Dictonary

Friday, April 21st, 2006

Urban Dictionary

This site is not necessarily for everyone, as it is describing slang, but I found it, because I heard a song on the radio talking about showing someone your grill and had no idea what it meant.

Meanings of grill:

1.) Teeth
2.) A gold/diamond plate that is molded for your teeth. It is decorated with diamonds and/or gold. Usually worn by rappers, Nelly, Paul Wall… Continue reading

Face Maker

Friday, April 7th, 2006

This is an interesting site. It’s actually a download, but all in all, it’s still pretty neat. You need to check out the information on the Face Maker page to really grasp what you are doing with the program.

Basically, the program allows you to make faces. The artistic side of me really loves this. You can make them any way you want to. Make male… Continue reading

Plan 59

Friday, March 31st, 2006

Plan 59

Welcome to Plan 59, where you can check out nostalgic images of the mid 1900s. It has mostly 1950s art (commercial art) and I really feel that this is an art form that has almost been entirely lost. So, I’m glad to see that someone devoted time to saving the clean lines of the past.

I should mention that if you are a car fan, you’re going… Continue reading
