TheFilter – The Filter is an online discovery experience that filters the world of online entertainment and information, personalizing it for each individual user. The Filter is a blend of man and machine – a hybrid engine that filters entertainment content to one’s own personal taste. Pick your favorite music and movie genres and The Filter will try recommending your faves. The idea is amazing however in my eyes the execution is quite poor. The Filter is backed by Peter Gabriel’s Real World Group, I would like to suggest Peter – stick with music, at least with music you can predict the future – Here comes the flood!

I am Neurotic – The following description doesn’t belong to me “I can’t use silverware or plates and bowls in restaurants. When I eat out, I have to order “hand food” (sandwiches, nuggets, strips, anything I can eat with my hands). I also always order my food to go, even If I am with people and they are eating thereâ€¦my friends have just accepted it and love taunting me with the fact that they are using the restaurant silverware and eating off of restaurant plates. I find it disgusting that they are using silverware that has been in thousands of peoples mouths, who knows what diseases and their own disgusting hygiene habitsâ€¦.same thing applies to the plates and bowlsâ€¦ all that saliva mixing with the foodâ€¦ Ick!” I am neurotic is a site dedicated to neurotic disturbances. What is your “small” interruption?
