Friday fun for July 13,2007

It's been a hot, hot week here on Vancouver Island. We've enjoyed record-breaking temperatures most of the week, although things seem to be easing up a bit as we approach the weekend.

So perhaps it's the heat that's put me in a lazy mood. Or it could be that I'm just lazy, or that I'm procrastinating. Whatever the reason, I've found a couple of websites that are a nice diversion on a hot day, assuming that you're stuck in the office and don't have access to a back deck with a pool.

Let your inner artist free

If you like to doodle, you'll have fun with Mr. Picassohead. You can choose from a variety of facial features, like eyes, lips, hair, etc. and play with them to create your own caricature. You can re-size items, colour them, discard and pick new ones, all with just a few mouse clicks. I like playing with eyebrows to completely change the expression.

Here's the link.

The seventies will never die

Picture3.gifI've mentioned before that I'm a bit of a sucker for the music from the seventies. It was my formative decade, after all. (Click on the photo of the Average White Band for more info.) So coming across this site was a nice surprise. It's got the background information on all the hit songs form each year of the decade. There's a lot of really interesting (if somewhat shallow) information here. And if you get interested, it's a good starting point for a more detailed research piece into whatever song or artist you're interested in.

Take a look and start poking around. If you're at all like me, you'll be clicking through to more sites and links for the next while and before you know it, the heat wave will be over!
