If you’ve ever wanted to be the Grand Marshal in a parade in your head, now’s your chance. Just click over to this weird little Japanese site, and type in your Twitter username. You’ll soon see yourself marching along to quirky music, being followed (literally) by all your Twitter followers. It’s oddly entertaining…and pointless.

Most of my favorite memories involve food…so it’s not surprising that when I think of the dozens of times I visited Disney World as a kid, what stands out isn’t Space Mountain or Epcot Center – it’s the pancakes shaped like Mickey Mouse that are served at virtually every restaurant. I remember going straight for those little silver dollar ears and devouring them in one ravenous gulp.
Needless to say, I love pancakes…so my new favorite blog is The Pancake Project. The artist behind the site creates imaginative pancake designs that make the Mickey Mouse ones look like child’s play. These are some of the yummiest:

Old people have an uncanny way of cutting through all the bull and telling it like it is. Actor and writer Seth Menachem’s blog, Life Advice From Old People, is a perfect example. Seth tracks down talkative seniors (both familiar to him and also complete strangers) and asks them to share some life lessons. He also writes short profiles about their lives which help enhance the interviews. Funny, poignant, and heartwarming. If you’re lucky enough to still have your Grandparents around, give them a call today.
These are some of my favorite videos:
Want to see your face plastered up on a billboard in Taipei? What would it look like to see one of the most famous celebrities in the world with a tattoo of your face? Uploading photos of yourself and your friends to a site that then creates images, e-cards, and animated films starring you (ie JibJab) is nothing new – and who can forget the original Office Max “Elf Yourself” campaign from a few years ago?
But the static photos and simple animations that Photofunia generates from your images are at a higher quality than I’ve seen before. And to be honest, those more involved animated films from companies like JibJab, while absolutely fun and entertaining, are sometimes a bit too long. Photofunia images are professionally manipulated (the shading and effects are top-notch), and easy to create…with everything online lately getting quicker and shorter 140 characters at a time, these images do the trick.
Check these out – the dress isn’t on sale yet….sorry ladies.
Thanks for the tip, Matty
