Pandora

http://www.pandora.com

One of my all-time favourite sites, Pandora is kind of like internet radio tailored to whatever music you are in the mood for. It asks you for a genre/artist/song and then proceeds to work out a playlist of stuff it thinks you’re gonna like…It’s got an immense database these days – you can find some pretty obscure stuff on this amazing site created by the founders of the Music Genome project.

Make your own Thai food

http://www.thaitable.com/

Thai table tells you how to make a lot of the classic Thai dishes, all about the ingredients, what sort of equipment you need and has articles like ‘The truth about peanut sauce’ – I swear there’s no such thing in Thailand – how the hell did it come to be associated?

Also where to find suppliers for the ingredients etc. in places besides the US (for a change) – if you like Thai grub then check this site out!

Strange New Products

This is a blog about all the more unusual products out there on the market with entries like ‘Wedgie-proof underwear’ and ‘Stainless steel lollipops’ (really these are real mass-produced products!) Furthermore the site also links to the home pages of these products and to places where you can actually buy this weird stuff.
