Save TV-Links!

I'm sure some of you are familiar with the popular site Well apparently, the owner of the site was arrested because TV-Links links to sites that host copyrighted content. Links not hosts. Apparently, the sites that do host the material [such as Google] have become so rich and powerful, that they are now above the law.
If linking to another site that hosts illegal content [and therefore, linking to a site that links to illegal content] is illegal, than essentially, the entire internet is illegal!

I'm asking you, please sign the petition to get TV-Links back up and running so I can go back to watching The Big Bang Theory and Cow and Chicken!

Do Something Useful, You Bum!

Free Rice

It's a vocabulary-based website. You give the correct definition of the word, and they give 10 grains of rice to someone in need. It's educational for you, and potentially life-saving for them. This thing proves how much of a nerd I am. I started doing it to help someone, but after a while, I noticed the vocabulary level, and now I'm hooked. I'm determined to try to get past level 48 [Approx. the highest anyone can make it without a dictionary] without cheating. I've only reached 38 so far. Bah, it's still higher than anyone else I know. Plus, it's more than 16,000 grains of rice.
Epic win for me.

Scary Love and Music Is My Boyfriend

<3. Kyle of & the SSF has posted Music is My Boyfriend and Scary Love on his Youtube account. Scary Love is here, and Music Is My Boyfriend is here. [He's got 1 min clips of the other songs on his profile, as well.] I'm thinking MimB is my favorite song from the album so far. We've also been graced with a tracklisting and an album cover! Sweet. <3

10 Most Amazing Guys

Psyche! I'm just messing with you. You didn't really think I was going to go into all of that, did you? Nah, I'm not that obscenely girly, although I will tell you about the Male Beauty thread on Gaia. [Heheh. Alex Kapranos was my suggestion. Tarkan is gorgeous, even though that picture of him isn't. Gackt is the prettiest old-man pretty boy I've ever seen.]

Actually, this is another indie band post, so feast your ears with these gems.

Band: Tacks, The Boy Disaster
Best Song: Frozen Feet
Final Say: Pleasantly repetitive. Tacks, The Boy Disaster manages to deliver everything in just the right moment, with out making you feel drugged-up and overdosed. [Fans of Kasabian, Phonograph, and One Ring Zero might enjoy this.]

Band: I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness
Best Song: According to Plan
Final Say: According to Plan is a more slow-paced song, complete with long, ringing melodies. The bass line is well timed, and the chorus is sure to get stuck in your head. [Fans of Franz Ferdinand, Minus the Bear, and Electrical Sunset might enjoy this.]

Band: Doug Walker
Best Song: Stranger Than Fiction
Final Say: With gorgeously distinctive vocals, and a hypnotizing use of instrumentals, Doug Walker sufficiently proves that he knows what he's doing when he comes to music. [Fans of American Vaudeville Theatre, Muse, and Crowded House might enjoy this.]

One World Virtual

Hey, all you gamers! Just a note to all the Flight Simulator X players out there, check out One World Virtual. It's a site a friend of mine enlisted me to help with that's dedicated to FSX. It's got downloads, session information, and a discussion forum. So...Run, join, and be merry. Or something.
