What I Do on the Internet

This week's Friday 5 is about Net Habits. It's been a while since I've done a Friday 5, so I thought I'd give this one a shot.

1. What types of blogs do you usually read?
Toooo many... there are 182 in my Google Reader. Mostly, though, they are personal blogs or art/design blogs.
Here's a few you should go read if you don't already: Bliss, Classy in Philadelphia, LilySpeak, Me Melodia, Snapshot Chicago, Stylish Handwriting, The Holly & The Ivy, The State That I Am In,The Transformation of Kern, Turquoise Ribbons, Writing to Reach You, Yes and Yes, and You Are My Fave.

2. What kinds of products do you usually buy when you shop online?
The last two things I bought online were my Matt & Nat purse (which I am still waiting for... stupid UPS...), and my Mole Book.

3. What kinds of online videos do you usually spend time watching?
Here's my fave YouTube videos:

Hope you enjoyed those.

4. Besides Friday 5, what weekly memes do you particularly enjoy?
I don't really do any weekly ones, just when the mood strikes me.

5. Where do you like to go for streaming online music?
Well, I've heard fantastic things about Pandora, but unfortunately, those of us North of the Border aren't able to listen to it. If I listen to streaming music, I usually go to AOL Radio. I will also listen to music on YouTube, which reminds me, I was doing that the other night and rediscovered the video for Crash Into Me by the Dave Matthews Band. I love the song, but it had been a while since I saw the video, so I had forgotten just how beautiful it is. Y'all need to go here and watch it (because embedding is disabled). It's like the most gorgeous dream. Seriously, go watch it.

I have loved "Crash Into Me" for years but never seen the video - MY but that is insane and insanely gorgeous! Like a dream about being inside a surrealist painting. I am in love with the dancers on the lawn...

And thank you so much for the plug for my blog! :)

Aw, thanks for the blog ad! :D For some reason I really like the music video for American Girl by Dave. I love Julia Roberts and LOVE the song. I actually really like his solo album A LOT. It's really sad that the sax player passed away, do you know what they're going to do now without him?

Stay great! :)

Thanks for my shout-out. I'm so excited!

PS- I am IN LOVE with the Charlie Bit My Finger video....probably the cutest thing ever.

Thanks for making me check out that DMB video. I hadn't seen it in a while. It's awesome--just like the song.
