After a one week hiatus.....you know, baby appt's, friends in town, I'm a busy busy guy.....errrrrr something. Weekly Web Collective is back!
Everyone likes cute animals, let's start there. The Minnesota Zoo needs your help naming a couple Siberian Tigers. Vote here! I say Leon & Karlos.
Gangnam Style! I swore I wouldn't ever align myself with anything, that had ANYTHING to do with that garbage chunk of audio doo doo, but I have to admit......this is fantastic. These kids have done more than this too, they're called Pentatonix and they got skillz.....yes, with a Z, that's how good they are.
#1 - @HuffingtonPost - "7 sites you should be wasting time on right now huff.to/SCWjc0"
These are worth checkin out, they accompany listening to Cities97 all day, perfectly. My favs are "Fake Louie Episodes" and "Short Form Blog"
#2 - @EricHolljes - "@PaulFletcher97 Great meeting you. Spencer & your 3 friends yesterday. Can't wait to come back to the Twin Cities! Yall are awesome"
THAT is from Eric of the band Delta Rae. On the surface it might look self serving, but my point to including it is that was unsolicited. Tweeted that on his own accord. Further proving what great people make up that band and the music is just as good. You really NEED to check them out. Click here to do just that.
#3 - @Billboard - Mumford & Sons have the most Hot 100 Hits in a week by a band since The Beatles bit.ly/QY6Liq"
Ummm, at least they aren't dragging their women by their hair? What in the cheese is this!? Are there still Caveman living in Maine!? Hahahaha. This is going on this weekend. If you want to know more about the 2012 North American Wife Carrying Championships.....by all means......click here.
I used to be a super uber "techy" guy.....in some aspects I think we could use a technology regression, but this isn't one of those moments. This is super cool. Oh by the way the camera that did this is only like $300K, so get me one for Xmas, would ya? It's capable of capturing 2,500 frames per second.
Ellie Goulding has been one busy gal. New album. Best Buy commercial. New video for first single. And then there's this.....This is a video for a song which will be part of the movie "Now Is Good". Not sure the movie will see release in the States (I think it will eventually), but we can still check out the vid for Ellie's song; "I Know You Care". Pretty touching.
This is one of the greatest pranks of the internet era.....I'd say. I meant to post this last week amidst all the iPhone5 hullabaloo, but we know what happened there (Smirk). SO, this is from last week, but still worthy of a watch......
Quality Covers......let's wrap this beast up with one of the greatest covers I've ever seen. Definitely the greatest cover of all time of a song I could care less about.....this Fillipino kid absolutely, positively knocks this Whitney Houston song out of the park!! Where was this kid when Simon Cowell needed him on American Idol.....I can't tell you how many times I heard Simon bash people TRYING to sing Whitney and then this little kid does it on some street on, what I'd assume is, a piece of junk karaoke machine........WHO DOESN'T BELIVE IN REINCARNATION!?
