As heard about on NPR Talk Radio...Wikileaks

So I was listening to NPR (National Public Radio) the other day about a website that allows you to submit documents, video, audio, or just plain information that you feel needs to be shared with the public ("Principled leaking") and they mentioned the release of the Afghan War Diary, 2004-2010 which is a collection of over 91,000 reports covering the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2010, written by soldiers and intelligence officers. I thought to myself, wtf?! So, when I got home, I checked out this Wikileaks website and discovered it's purpose and what it's doing to make positive changes in the world...

"WikiLeaks is a multi-jurisdictional public service designed to protect whistleblowers, journalists and activists who have sensitive materials to communicate to the public.    -WikiLeaks:About Page"

Basically, this site exposes many corrupt occurrences that "we" would never know about if not for a site like this..and THAT, my friends, is why I've decided to share this site with you today.

Till next time...tell me what you think of the site.

b@ Features...Join the Party!

Have you ever wanted to go to a festival to see your favorite DJ, but couldn't? Maybe you had to work, or you had other plans you couldn't break, was in ANOTHER COUNTRY?? Yeah me too, which is why I'm really diggin' this new site I found, Be @ TV.
You can look up a music event by name...or you can search a DJ's name. For instance, I would've LOVED to see Roger Sanchez at Tomorrowlands which happened a few days ago on July 25th. So I clicked on Tomorrowlands/Roger Sanchez link and I got to watch his set, wich was recorded through FOUR different angles!! I could feel (and see) the vibe of his set, which is WAY COOL!
If you'd like to see what I'm talking about, click on ROGER SANCHEZ or IDA ENGBERG now.

Cool Desktop Wallpapers -

Tired of those cheesy wallpapers you see way too many people using?? ME TOO! SO when I stumbled upon this site, I knew I HAD to share it with you....the quality of photos are pretty damn amazing! I can now look at my desktop without cringing at the sight of my lame built in wallpapers...hopefully you can do the same.
Below are a few small examples from the site...

Just wanted to pass a long a game site I tend to use quite frequently. Good graphics, free (cheap monthly dues if you don't want the advertisements) and LOADS of fun! One of my favorite features is the fact that you can create a "mini"and purchase clothing, backgrounds, haircuts, pets, etc. for your "mini" to reflect as closely or as opposite from yourself as you'd like.

Play the Tiny Drum Machine!

Now here's a great way to waste time in your work day...if you liked the xylophone as a kid, you'll LOVE the Tiny Drum Machine by the people at The Pixel Plant! What's the purpose, you may ask....choose from one of 5 versions of a virtual music machine, ranging from a simple drum kit to soothing bell chimes. I was hooked for at least an hour! lol

Petizens...its like Facebook for your pet

I'm not even sure how I came across this site, but I'm so happy I did. Having an
animal in your life can really change a person and their state of happiness. My girlfriend and I have 6 cats and they ALL have a very distinct personality. I can't count how many times I've said that a couple of them needed their own blog because of the silly things they do. Now that I've found Pitizens I no longer have to "think" about starting that blog...this is better than a blog. It truly is like Facebook for your pet(s). It works just like a networking site. You create a profile for yourself AND for your pet...your pet is the one who's profile page everyone sees. Petizens i
s a worldwide network, so you can see people's pets from ALL over the globe.

WOOT! Rocks!

Sure, I've heard the term "woot", but I never really got the far as the website goes...I get it now. And I Love it! The concept is brilliant as far as I'm concerned! Basically, they sell one item per day until it is sold out or until 11:59pm central time when it is replaced by a new item. That *new* item is released every morning at 12am central time, seven days a week. It's a great way to keep people like me coming back just out of pure curiosity if nothing else. OH, and they also have what they call a “woot off” (found at Sellout.woot)where they take the products that didn’t get sold and sell them back to back at an even LOWER price until all of them are gone.  This is the only time products change more than once in a 24 hour period.
I love woot so much, I registered with 2 of their other sites as well...

Okay my friends...that's it for my next "Site Junkee" review worth checking out!
 I hope you'll take a moment to look around and possibly join....I did.
