Ferrari breaks Force India's Heart

Adrian Sutil was all set to claim 4th place at Monaco in 2008 after a brilliant day which saw him dodging accidents left and right in the rain and exploiting his car when he could --- and then Kimi loss control.

It's not Kimi's fault, really. But it makes you wonder how Kimi's car lost it, when Sutil's went over the same patch of road as his a few secs before without incident.

Sutil was said to be inconsolable.

Idea: Have Sutil and Raikonnen swap cars for the next race at Magny Cours! Then Sutil can have the speed for once -- and maybe ram Kimi's car if he wanted to.

Sigh. I was all set to give Force India a whoop and a cheer, and then this. The next hope for anything like this happening again is in... 2009?

Classic Game Music played by a Classical Orchestra

This is from 2006 but I only discovered it today.

Who knew video game music could be played by an orchestra? Great fun on classic games from Video Games Live.

Lots more on Youtube: you want Zelda? Final Fantasy? Metal Gear? It's all there, fanboys (and fangirls!)

David Cook is a Guitar Hero

... and the winner of American Idol 2008!

And the big winner of American Idol 2008 is...

...not David Archuleta.

Not David Cook.

It's Renaldo Lapuz! Here he is at the Finale show, in full regalia, and with a marching band to boot.

Beat THAT Davids!

This is for all of you who have little kids. And even if you don't have kids, it's worth a watch.

The Backyardigans will have you tappin' your feet in no time.

(Forgive me for this post: "Monster Dance Party" was the last song I heard when I left for work this morning!)

Nicholas White went down for a cigarette break -- then went back up to his office. Little did he know that this would be the longest elevator ride he would ever take.

Englishman In New York (Live at 19 East) - Bamboo

You might think that it's off to have Bamboo, a Filipino through and through, doing a cover of Sting's "Englishman in New York". And you might even be forgiven for saying that it's just not right for Bamboo to have that almost-affected English accent in some parts.

But damn, if this ain't a one of the best covers of one of Sting's best song's, I don't know what is.

TURN UP YOUR VOLUME LOUD, boys and girls.

Twitter in Plain English

This is a great little video to explain how Twitter works. (You DON'T TWITTER? Go to then after you watch this vid!)

I like it not just because it explains the concept of Twitter really well, but also because of the way it does it.

This comes from -- a site dedicated to "explanations in Plain English" through simple drawings. (I wonder why I never saw this before though.)

It's educational in a graphic / visual kind of way --- kind of like Hotforwords without the boobs and seduction.

It's what... HotForNet (?) for net newbies, at least based on the topics of the videos they've done so far: RSS, social networking, blogs, online photosharing, podcasting, etc.

Check out their site!

Yup! Got my first Google Adsense cheque today!

Watch this video to understand how Adsense works. (There are other videos on Adsense out there but I found this really effective in explaining why the system works and why Google does it).

Now, to work on getting my second Adsense cheque....
