SousVide...SWEEET!

I'll bet your life at mealtime is as crazy as mine: interruptions galore and food that is precariously prepared. Overcooking stuff because someone is late or trying to get main dishes fork-tender can be lofty aspirations with busy families. Get a load of this new cooking alternative....

Fast forward to the 2:26 point. For the official site, click here...




Touching, Brave new show....

I ALREADY HEART THIS SHOW!!! I hope like heck this makes it to Showcase. Laura Linney always delivers beautifully textured and nuanced performances and it looks like 'The Big C' is another memorable role.

Only about a month left to go!

Here is the latest TV spot for the Twilight Saga: Eclipse!

GET ADVICE ON YOUR WARDROBE FROM COMPLETE STRANGERS


A new website has launched called GoTryItOn.com. Basically, it allows women to upload photos of themselves in different outfits, along with a little blurb explaining the type of event they're dressing for.

Then visitors who want to give their opinion can vote on whether the person should "wear it" or "change it." Or they can just leave a written review explaining their thoughts on the overall look.

And GoTryItOn.com isn't just for women. According to the site's operators, about 20% of the users are men.

A woman named Marissa Evans founded the site. She says she came up with the idea after years of getting ready to go out with her friends.


Marissa says, quote, "Women seem to mostly use it for a night out. And the men use it for dates and weddings. They like the opinions when there's a big, formal event. Women like them all the time."

Paul Dateh: Lady Ga Ga violin mashup

Greyson Chance

This goes to show you the power of YouTube. The 12-year-old Internet sensation, Greyson Michael Chance, who made waves after posting his "Paparazzi" performance on the site, has scored a deal with Interscope Records.

1000 Awesome Things

Neil Pasricha, the guy who originated the popular website www.1000awesomethings.com has put some of those awesome things in a new book titled, “The Book of Awesome.” Here are some of the things that he thinks are awesome – what do you think?

- The cold side of the pillow.
- When cashiers open up new checkout lanes at the grocery store.
- Wearing underwear just out of the dryer.
- Seeing a cop on the side of the road and realizing you’re going the speed limit.
- When you get the milk-to-cereal ratio just right.
- Having a whole row to yourself on the plane.
- Popping bubble wrap.
- Picking the perfect nacho off someone else’s plate.
- That moment at a concert when the lights go out just before the band comes out on stage.
- Hitting a bunch of green lights in a row.
- Sleeping in new bed sheets.
- Taking your bra off after wearing it for hours.
- Waking up before your alarm goes off and realizing you’ve got lots of sleep-time left.
- When the vending machine gives you too much change back or gives you two things instead of one.
- The thank-you wave when you let someone merge in front of you.
- Getting your ID checked when you’re over the legal age.
