A "rejected" Pillsbury cookie dough commercial that speaks to its real audience ... emotional eaters stuffing in the cover of night!
*
From Martha, a fantastic roadside attraction that ponders the eternal question, what if dinosaurs had helped fight in the Civil War? Almost as good an idea as the one from my Film Script class: Dinosaurs vs Cowboys ... In Space!
*
If you're like me (an old coot before their time) who gets tired of standing around, jostling with thousands of unknown, sweaty strangers to hear your favorite bands, this sleeping concert might be right up your alley. Seriously, i must find one of these.
*
From Neatorama, "these trampolinists are acting out infographic effects for this music video for the band zZz." It was all done in one take, before a live audience. The spinning color wheel of death (a.k.a. the "hold on I'm processing" cursor) is my favorite part.
*

Pictures taken at the most perfect angles.

*
The ultimate in geek fashion: LEGO couture!
*
From Krystle, a place where people post their secret diary entries of yore. Mostly hilarious, just stay away from the indulgent ones (but listing the best shows of 1993? Amazing).

Assortment of strange and amazing images from one year ago!

*
Feeling medieval? Purses made with aluminum pull-tabs might be just the thing to sort our your desire for some good ole fashion chainmail. Keeping in more responsible times, they are also made out of recycled products (Thanks Jan!)
*
A skinny white kid who beatboxes like a champ? Say no more!
*
Browse or create stencil art to print out in this free online archive.
*
Need an art fix in between Feel Art Again? Peruse some high quality images from famous artists that include biographies and gallery slide shows.
*
If you've ever had trouble putting your evil plans for world domination into words, this site may help. Think of it like an Evil Warlord MadLib.
*
Just in time for the holidays, printable coupons and online discounts from Retail Me Not. It's just about time for me to go into my yearly hibernation to avoid the chaos caused by malls, anyway.
*
A new version of a very old (and apt) cartoon about engineering. You ever hear the one about how a camel was a horse designed by committee?
*
Cool flickr photo set of bending light.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Don't let that tryptophan work overtime, keep sending in links to FlossyLinks@gmail.com!
