Opening a Banana Like a Monkey

I’d have to say my favorite website of 2009 has been lifehacker, which posts nifty tips and tricks for us geeks out there including software downloads and cool desktop wallpapers. They even have a Food Hacks category where they offer tips on how to eat better. I’d have to say that my favorite post was ‘Opening a Banana Like a Monkey‘, which has forever changed how I open one of my favorite fruits!

The 5:20 Funny Podcast

podcast icon

Every day at 5:20pm on 103.7 The Mountain they play a comedy clip and they call it the ‘5:20 Funny’. I always enjoy listening to it when I’m driving home from work. The other day Marty Riemer mentioned that he puts the mp3 of the clip up on their website for download. So I decided to scrape the site and make a podcast of the show! It’s working pretty great, if you subscribe to it and see anything weird or have any other ideas please feel free to let me know. The podcast feed can be found at:


*Update* – This stopped working and I don’t have time to fix it. Sorry. 😐

Crazy Bird Calls

I’m not sure if this video is dubbed, but it sounds and looks really convincing! My favorite is the camera shutter. Sounds just like my Canon SLR!

*update* I checked it out on Wikipedia, and it seems legit!
