The Basics: StumbleUpon. Commence Procrastination!

I am leaving San Francisco tomorrow* morning so I can get my life together to start my new job in NYC in two weeks (gulp). Obviously this calls for some serious procrastination… especially because I have to wake up early and haven’t started packing yet.

In honor of serious procrastinating, I would like to share my favorite procrastination tool with those that have not yet had the pleasure of using this fabulous time-waster.

The Arcade Fire raises the bar again

I don’t know if everyone has noticed or been paying attention, but The Arcade Fire have taken album releases to a new level with their latest album, The Suburbs.  Their video for “We Used to Wait” is just one more example.  Utilizing HTML5 and Google Earth, the interactive video takes you on a nostalgic trip through your childhood neighborhood via multiple pop-up windows, synchronized with the music.

You make me touch your hands for stupid reasons

It’s old, but it’s probably in my top ten of favorite internet finds of all time.  Normally I hate butchering of the english language, but this is a great exception.  Full screen and sound required.

Your Brain: Will It Blend?

" viral smoke. Don't breathe this!"

OH. MY. GOD. I was shocked this flew under my radar for so long… but then again, I haven’t always been an avid TechCrunch or PRWeek reader.

Thank you, Forbes, for recognizing Will It Blend as one of the  Best-Ever Social Media Campaigns because a. it’s potentially true and b. I was previously unfamiliar with the genius that is Will It Blend.
