Web Watch has been a huge fan of ANTVILLE’s VIDEO BLOG, which regularly lists some of the newest, greatest, most interesting music videos available online.
This week, Antville has decided to release what they are calling THE 101 TOP MUSIC VIDEOS OF THE DECADE, and with the number one spot being taken by the White Stripes’ FELL IN LOVE WITH A GIRL, Web Watch really can’t say that Antville got it wrong.
But what were the rest of the top ten of the 424 that Antville put up for vote?
Trolling through eBay auction listings can offer a laugh or two, with the misspellings, grammar, and unusual photographs with naked people in the background of shots (the infamous eBay teakettle, anyone?).
Have you wandered over to etsy.com? Etsy is an auction site just like eBay, but instead of offering ready-made items available at the local store, Etsy is a community of sellers who make their own items for sale. Some have called Etsy an “eBay for arts-and-crafts”.
So you’re sitting around the house watching the REAL HOUSEWIVES marathon on Bravo, and you got to wondering: we know that we always see these houses and townhomes in the shots, but where exactly do these women live?
Sure, you could do a couple of Google searches or type things into Google Maps to see what comes up, or you could do what Web Watch does and visit VIRTUAL GLOBETROTTER, because they’ve already done the hard part for you.
Laura Wattenberg knows a thing or two about naming babies.
As the author of THE BABY NAME WIZARD book (shown here), she is often asked for her insights onto the hows, whys, and whens of getting that perfect name for your new child.
And since Laura is such an expert, she was asked to come up with what she thinks will be THE MOST POPULAR BABY NAMESin the future… say, ten years from now in the year 2019. For those of you keeping score, that would be — more or less — about the time today’s 3rd – 5th graders would be on that early baby-making track (8th-9th graders for those willing to wait a few more years).

As is often the case, some of the skits were hit-or-miss. Opening monologue and the Beauty and the Beast sketch were amusing, as is what usually happens when the cast throws some comedic music into the mix.
We enjoyed Weekend Update as always, and Keenan’s “What’s Up With That” bit was worth the effort the cast put into it (we’ll see that one again, we hope). Butler may not have been the strongest host they’ve had, but he certainly didn’t embarass himself – and he showed that he was willing to do anything for a laugh. No complaints about him at all. The lack of Andy Samberg and an SNL Digital Short is a different issue, but we don’t have time to get into that today.
If you’re looking for some neat way to jazz up your website or presentation… or want to make one of those old-school ransom notes using that new-fangled “Internet” technology, then Web Watch just may have found a solution for you.
