- Gwen Stefani feat. Akon - The Sweet Escape (video)
Songs like this make her album not a total waste. This one is light years better than 'Wind It Up'. [cred].
- Hot Chip - Arrest Yourself (video)
The new video from Hot Chip is like a watching-paint-dry version of The Matrix.
- The National Pool - AO1 (MP3)
The National Pool hail from Nashville and create an intresting fusion of indie rock and electronic elements on this track.
- The Apple iPhone is gorgeous
Is it too late to return my enV? Nevermind, it is exclusively only available through Cingular for now.

- R.E.M., Van Halen, Patti Smith, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, The Ronettes inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
I don't know what their criteria are, but I'm surprised it took that long for all the inductees.
- Best prank of the year so far, on Flickr: The Post-It Note Jaguar
- The Mystery of Picasso - Google Video
Watch Picasso in a time lapse video as he creates an oil painting...his own way. Just when you think you know what's going on, you don't. It helps me appreciate his work a lot more.
