"Of the Month" November ’08

Link of the Month:
Woot!
Woot.com is an online store and community that focuses on selling cool stuff cheap. They sell one item per day until it is sold out or until 11:59pm central time when it is replaced. A new product is released every morning at 12am central time, seven days a week. You can find some insanely cool things for insanely cheap prices.

DVD of the Month:
Pushing Daisies – The Complete First Season
The premise: The protagonist can bring anybody or anything dead back to life with a touch. If he touches it again EVER, then it dies again forever. If he doesn’t touch it again within 60 seconds, though, something of equivalent life value nearby will spontaneously drop dead. A private detective learns this and uses the protagonist to solve murders by having him touch the victims and asking what happened, then touching them again before the 60 seconds elapse. Beyond the premise, though, Pushing Daisies is an absolutely delightful, whimsical, colorful fantasy mixed with romantic comedy and good old-fashioned detective capers. It is an absolute delight and like nothing I’ve ever before seen on TV. A cheery, quirky, Tim Burton-esque romp with quick, snappy dialogue and not a single boring/standard character or situation.

Album of the Month:
Three Ninjas: Live at Studio 7
Aaaah. Good times. Good times. 6 songs performed with special guest Geoff Gibbs (of the Crazy Boy Floyds) on bass live in front of an actual, real-life audience. Includes an improvised “Rap Fight,” the never-before-heard “Going Gay For House” and an astonishing “Beluga Calf” medley! Best of all, this album is a FREE DOWNLOAD over at Three Ninja’s blog, jeffthefish.com
