Nothing is more frustrating than having a rockin' band without a name! The
Band-O-Matic site helps you find a hip band name in a matter of seconds.
Just keep hitting the Uno mas button
and you'll get plenty of suggestions. How about The Inferior Catwomen,
or Asphalt Buffet, or maybe Combustible Migraine? The
possibilities for a truly memorable band name are endless!
Thrift Store Paintings
Before the art world became a group of untouchable snobs, there was a little genre we liked to call
folk art. Actually, it's a bit less legit than that. It's called thrift store art. These are the
paintings you see for sale at Goodwills and thrift stores across the country. This site
displays some of the oddest pieces of artwork you can imagine. Think portraits of toilet
paper and pink poodles.
Bass Tab Archive
If you're learning how to play the bass guitar, or just want to play some of your favorite bands' songs, then
the Bass Tab Archive site is the place to be. Here you can search the index for songs from such
bands as the Pixies, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. The site also has tabs from
classic legends like the Doors and Jimi Hendrix.
Pet of the Day
What makes an iguana extra cuddly? Or a pot-bellied pig super cute? On the Pet of the Day site, you can
browse through images of pets that are supposedly cool in their own right. Each pet of the day has
a listing of its stats, including name, age, breed and home. And these aren't just cats and dogs either.
One of the past winners just happened to be a possum. Perhaps you should nominate your own
friendly creature and watch your pet catapult into stardom.
How many times have you been reading a book or taking a nap
and missed watching a high-speed police chase on TV?
With Pursuit Watch, that'll never happen again. Every time
an O.J.-type chase goes down on the telly, the thoughtful
folks at Pursuit Watch will page you for a small price. And if you
notify them of a chase, you could earn a $100 reward!
The Jalopy Journal
If you like hot rods, you're going to thank me for sending you to The Jalopy Journal. This
Web zine has photos galore of vintage hot rods. Check out the featured cars section for photos
and collectors' information.
Cocktail Shaker Collection
You don't have to be a member of the Rat Pack to own an impressive
lot of cocktail shakers. Steve T. is a serious collector, and he
has the photos to prove it. See not only a vast array of cocktail shakers,
but also coasters, drink stirrers, napkins, shorties and recipe books.
Ever wonder why police officers like to eat donuts? Or why some officers turn on their
emergency lights, go through a red light and then turn them off? Find out from an actual cop
on his site, Five-0 Central. There's even a special section all about dumb criminals!
