RealMilitary Flix – What made the birth of warfare possible was the emergence of societies. The beauty of the various societies is the cultural diverseness which has brought our world to what it is today however the same diverseness causes WAR. Unfortunately, war has always been here and will always will be here. Real Military Flix features a wide range (World War I, World War II, Korean War, Vietnam War, Desert Storm and the Invasion of Iraq) of exclusive war videos, the collections is quite impressing. However, the site claims it is the world’s largest on-line military film and video, with such a statement I wish they would have extended their war variety to places such as: The Six-Day War, World War 3, Cocaine War. And for you game lovers they have included a special section that offers only War Games.
Blip – If you use Twitter, you can think of it like Twitter for music. However, in this case it means you have a true value for following people. If you don’t know what Twitter is, think of it like a never ending playlist that you and your friends build in real-time, and you know why they picked each song. I am truly excited, this is the essence of web 2.0 – combining music and social network together. This service has just launched and as much as I am excited, I encountered many flaws that should be resolved. The service isn’t intuitive enough, it takes a while before you get around. As well, too many links lead me to pages that have nothing to do with the core idea – sharing and following music. Yo Guys (Blip creators)!!! Please keep it simple – Less is More !! Follow me as I would love to share my fave music with you, I promise to update periodically.

RecipeZaar – Many people who visit AllMyFaves contact us and ask – How come you don’t have a recipes faveline. Well guys it is on its way. In the mean time we occasionally recommend recipes/cooking sites such as: Open Source Food, Mestolando, CookThink, Familyoven, iFoods.tv and Rouxbe. The previous sites might be more web 2.0 and more slick than Recipezaar however the strength of Recipezaar comes from the wide range of recipes to search from and a strong community. The only thing I can’t understand is why they are charging for a Premium membership. My philosophy is that services on the net should be offered for free, I am sure they make enough money from the ads they have on the site.

Instant RimShot – A rimshot is the sound produced by hitting the rim and the head of a drum at once, with a drum stick. Rimshots are usually played to produce a more accented note, and are typically played loudly. A Rimshot is usually used in order to accentuate the punchline of a joke. So tell your friends a joke and accompany it with a rimshot. Feeling red, check our previous red button – don’t press it.
