Commercial Of The Day: Members Only

Good god.

Classic Vid Of The Day: The Mom Song

I've seen it. You've seen it. Elizabeth wants us to see it again, and who can blame her? This chick rocks. (And so does Elizabeth, by the way.)

QOTD: Your strangest injury


Aimless Amy wants to know the weirdest injury you've ever received. Hers? "One time I pinched my nipple in a paint roller. NO, I was not painting my kitchen in the nude… I was trying to switch out the cover on the roller and it wouldn’t go on so I put one end of the roller on the counter for leverage and when I pushed down I leaned in and… OUCH!!! Yes, it left a mark. Hurt like a mofo, too."

How about you?

Vid Of The Day: Carmina Burana lyrics

Thanks, Renee, for this funny.

Vid Of The Day: Olympic Hopefuls

A nice compilation from Amanda of people busting their asses. I bet I've seen vault guy at the end about 100 times, but it still makes me laugh like hell.

Great Cover Songs Of The Day

My buddy Rick D. polled his friends and accumulated this list of great cover songs. Covering artists listed first, original performers in parentheses. I didn't check the accuracy of all these, nor is this anywhere close to an exhaustive list. To make an exhaustive list would be exhausting.
