Do you love color? This is a perfect site if you do.

There is the multicolor search lab, where you pick up to 5 colors and the site will search over 10 million images on flickr for photos with your specified color(s) and create a gallery of about 40 images per page you can look through and do whatever you want with.

Then you have the Visual Search Lab, where you type in as many tags as you want to return never before seen combinations of images (e.g. Rainbow dragon).

Next is the BYO Image Search Lab, where you upload a pic from your computer - anything at all - and the site will find flickr images that resemble your pic.

Last, there is TinEye which is a reverse image search engine where you submit an image and find out where it is being used on the web.

Love this site!

This website is awesome!

Here you can create a mosaic using a bunch of photos from flickr, or your own personal photos (if you have about 2-300 of them!) to create your chosen "master image".

Use it for business, personal, or whatever. Create your mosaic in the format you want, Get your free JPG mosaic or purchase a high-resolution JPG or print your mosaic as a poster.

You create the mosaic how you want it, pick your main photo and then all of your little photos (from flickr) that you want to incorporate into it and make it with,,, then the site makes it and e mails it to you when they're done with it. Usually less than a day.

REALLY cool.

This website is awesome!... But hard to explain. It's one of those sites you just have to see.

But here's how it works...

Every few minutes, the site searches all over the web for newly posted blog entries with the words "I am feeling" or "I feel". When it finds it, it records the full sentence and actually identifies the feeling expressed in that sentence.

Also, the age, gender, location, and weather at the time of the writing can be extracted from the blog and saved with the sentence as well.

As quoted on their page (because this is the best way to describe it):

"The result is a database of several million human feelings, increasing by 15,000 - 20,000 new feelings per day. Using a series of playful interfaces, the feelings can be searched and sorted across a number of demographic slices, offering responses to specific questions like: do Europeans feel sad more often than Americans? Do women feel fat more often than men? Does rainy weather affect how we feel?" (and so on)

"The interface to this data is a self-organizing particle system, where each particle represents a single feeling posted by a single individual. The particles' properties – color, size, shape, opacity – indicate the nature of the feeling inside, and any particle can be clicked to reveal the full sentence or photograph it contains. The particles careen wildly around the screen until asked to self-organize along any number of axes, expressing various pictures of human emotion. We Feel Fine paints these pictures in six formal movements titled: Madness, Murmurs, Montage, Mobs, Metrics, and Mounds."

This is really cool! Each one of the above "M words" you click will present the blog world's feelings to you in six very different and very colorful ways! One of them is a ton of brightly colored moving dots. Moving very fast. Another is a graph that scrolls so far it seems never ending (but does end. Eventually!). The others are awesome too.

Alas, the site also says "At its core, We Feel Fine is an artwork authored by everyone. It will grow and change as we grow and change, reflecting what's on our blogs, what's in our hearts, what's in our minds. We hope it makes the world seem a little smaller, and we hope it helps people see beauty in the everyday ups and downs of life."

And I must say, it lives up to its expectations. This site I can say is definitely an original, colorful, heartfelt, honest, expressive work of art. One of my favorites.

Check it out, you won't regret it.

Totally LOVE the f*ck outta this site (look that one up on the site while you're at it!)! It's awesome for many reasons, but mostly because it is made by entirely by its users! It has over 6 million definitions of "sayings", "slang", "phrases", "quotes", and everything in between.

You can browse "definitions" by clicking the random button, or search through each letter, or find a specific word/definition/phrase/etc by entering it in the search bar. If it doesn't have that EXACT one (if you were off by one word or something), it will show you matches that are similar to the one you entered. Also, you can choose to vote them up or down.

There's so much to do on here. There's a word of the day, and you can look through the "dictionary" or "thesaurus" or "names" (where you can look up your name and see what previous users have to say about it in their "name meanings").

Everything on here is completely hilarious. I could spend hours on here.

They even have a store where you can have the definition of the day (or any definition on the site) printed on a shirt, coffee mug, mouse pad, and even a temporary tattoo!

The "Edit" option shows you pending words/definitions and YOU vote whether it should be published on the site or not.

I cannot say enough about this site. Just love it.

I can't believe Urban Decay doesn't have any reviews yet! I love this site! I am completely in love with their 24/7 eyeliner. I always make sure to have the silver and the turquoise colors. I used to buy the pack of 5 mini 24/7 pencils but they discontinued it :( which sucks because I always restocked when I ran out of that. Now they have the duo's which I've been snatching up frequently.

I LOVE Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes too. With names like "Feminine", "Dangerous", "Fun", and "Rollergirl" (my favorite right now), there's something for everyone. They even sell Vegan make up!

I also love the Book of Shadows, and their Lip Love honey infused lipgloss. I can't get enough of Urban Decay. I know I sound like an advertisement right now but I don't care lol. They're friggen awesome.

Also never had any problems with customer service or receiving orders on time. I will continue to order from here and you should too!

The name of the site says it all. Wanna know what happened today (or tomorrow, or whatever day you go on) in music? Wanna know what famous musicians and band members, singers, etc were born on this day? Head on over to this site and you will see a list of interesting music-related things that happened on that particular day, plus birthdays for music related people.

For instance, on the day I am writing this review, some of the things that happened according to the site are 1993, Freddie Mercury had his first solo UK No. 1 single with 'Living On My Own'.; 2001, A pizza-stained piece of paper signed by three of the four Beatles sold for $48,000 (£17,441) to an anonymous collector at an auction in Melbourne; and 2008, Lita Roza died in Liverpool, England. Had the 1953 No. 1 hit with her version on the of Patti Page hit 'How Much Is That Doggie In The Window. (I shortened these for review writing purposes - each one has more info).

Also, some birthdays for today (Aug 14) are Sarah Brightman, Slim Dunlap, and Maddy Prior.

Interesting site to check out if you're bored.

Your writing can be boring if you keep repeating the same words. This is where synonym-finder comes in. All you do is type in the original word you were planning to use, and the site will come up with a list of synonyms for that word that are just, well... better! Perfect for writing stories, poems, etc. Really like this website. It's simple but definitely something I can and have used.
8/13/11
Definitely a great website for prevention of being scammed or opening e mails with viruses, etc. Definitely worth reading daily.

This site is freaking adorable! It has been one of my faves for years. I love Hello Kitty and all the other Sanrio characters. Love shopping on this site.

Really like this website. Pretty self explanatory. Over 5,000 idioms can be found here. There is a search bar so you can type in any idiom you are looking for. Once you find it, it gives you the meaning of the idiom and an example sentence, which, let's face it, most of the time make the words more easy to understand than the actual meaning. I like this site too because you can either do a search or browse the idioms by letter.

I love this jewelry/accessory site! Apparently, so do the editors of several magazines because their items are frequently featured in some of the most popular magazines in the US! I always explain Girlprops like this: Their jewelry is not CHEAP, it's INEXPENSIVE. There's a huge difference! I have never been let down by Girlprops! They have THE cutest jewelry items for THE best prices. Literally. From bangles to vintage jewelry, zodiac themed jewelry to cocktail rings, you will not be able to stop adding items to your bag when you shop at this site. And you won't feel bad because everything is so inexpensive! They have quirky items like a banana necklace, cigarette earrings, and lamb rings, just to name a few. I love their 1980's vintage items. Sometimes I even buy items off here to incorporate the pieces into my jewelry projects. For instance, last month I bought the multi record charms earrings and necklace ($5.99 & $6.99). Alltogether it was 12 brightly colored assorted neon plastic record charms, and I gladly added them to my jewelry making stash to use in future projects. Don't get me wrong, I buy TONS of jewelry on here to actually wear, too. But once in a while I find something great that I know I can use for one of my projects. Also I must note that their customer service is EXCELLENT. One time my order was missing a ring I had ordered (only happened once... honest, human mistake), and I e mailed them telling them it was not in there but that I obviously had no way to prove it wasn't in there. I received a response back the next DAY saying that they know I wouldn't lie about a $2.00 Gumball Ring and they would be happy to send me the ring right away. I received it promptly. Love this site. Definitely one of my favorites.

Hands down best "everything" store there is on the web. Great deals, fast shipping, good customer service. I can buy a book for $5 on Amazon that would normally be $25 elsewhere. I also love their free super saver shipping, where you get free shipping if your order totals $25 or over. This qualifies for most items on Amazon but not with the individual sellers. As far as they go, I do buy from individual sellers frequently. Books, mostly. I wouldn't be caught dead buying any craft supplies on Amazon, though. The shipping is something like $7 for a pack of stickers! That's the only gripe I have. Everything else is great. I also love their Personal Recommendations. Always right on the money with what I like... and always makes me end up buying more stuff than I originally planned! With me, I go on for something specific and end up going on an Amazon shopping spree (and going broke lol). Love!

Ok, honestly? I cannot find anything wrong with this website. First of all, it has to be the most popular bead/jewelry making supplies website on the Internet. Second, it has literally EVERYTHING you can think of related to jewelry making. Also, they offer discounts if you buy in bulk. The site is very easy to navigate and you quickly find what you're searching for. Their customer service is excellent, they ship FAST, and even include a free gift with your order! Everything is always packed neatly also. I get the Mystery Bags on there a lot for $10 and am never disappointed with the variety of goodies I receive! The site also has a gallery of designs, beading instructions, and a return policy that states 100% refund, no time limit, no questions asked. I've never had to return anything but from my experiences on the site I wouldnt doubt the credibility for a second.

I have read some of the past reviews and I can only say that I'm lucky I haven't run into any disputes with sellers or buyers and haven't had to contact the Etsy staff for anything in my approximately 5 years or so of using it. HOWEVER, I did have words with one seller, who I was looking at the switchplates she decorated in her store (which I also had started making switchplates. I was a beginner so I was looking around Etsy to see what techniques other people used to make theirs)... I asked her what she used to seal her switchplates with. That's all. And she FLIPPED out on me... saying that she sees switchplates in m store and she knows I'm going to copy her, and shes reporting me to Etsy and all these horrible things. So I basically tore her a new one, to put it nicely. She apologized because she realized what an ass&*$% she was being, and told me she was having a bad day. Whatever. But that's the only problem I ever had. Other than that, the sellers and buyers have been friendly. I love this site because it's so incredibly inspiring, I could spend hours looking through the stores and items... and spending way too much money on stuff! I sell also. It's just a really fun, really unique website. I couldn't do without it.

First of all, I can't believe this site only has two reviews! I almost fainted! Seriously though, I LOVE this website. It's not extremely often that I give a website five stars. I'm a pessimist - I always find something wrong with everything. But with Pinterest, I really can't find anything worth complaining about. ONE thing though, like the other reviews and comments talk about, the whole "Invitation Only" thing is a bit absurd. I don't really see the point of doing that. But thankfully my invite came within a few days, so I really don't have much to complain about. I love this site because it is so incredibly customizable! You can make pin boards on ANY topic you want. You can also search for pins or pinboards on any topic you want, and "repin" other peoples' pins onto your pin boards (you still with me?). You can also "like" items, if you like them but not enough to repin them. This is one of my top websites for inspiration and motivation. I always hoard pins from other boards because I find such awesome stuff that I didn't even know existed! I have a board for DIY projects, rainbows, neons, make up/looks, stuff for the home, typography and photos, beautiful spaces and places, and a few more. It's definitely addicting! Like I said, I'm surprised there are only two reviews on this site! One of my absolute favorites, hands down!

I really like this website! It's oddly refreshing. It's very easy to navigate and once you receive a "diagnosis", everything you want to know about it is on ONE page so you don't have to click back and forth repeatedly (when you click on something, a little "note" pops up on the page and further explains it, then you can "x" it out).

I think this is a really good idea. Obviously I wouldn't recommend it for serious illnesses and symptoms but it's great if you want a second opinion, have minor symptoms, or are just curious.

However, it is yet another website that can't figure out what's wrong with me :/ but tells me the same thing every other website (and doctor) has been telling me for ten years. Most distressing...

But other than that it's something new to try if you're curious. Not recommended for serious or complicated health issues.

Uh, yeah... what he said. Lol. Really the last review (and first) for this site was right on the money! Took what I was gonna say right outta my mouth so yeah lol like I said, what he said.

I really like "mood" websites like this. Believe it or not, I have about a handful of other websites I've found similar to this. But I think this is the only one where video is involved too as well as audio.

It's really neat, but as Chris said, it's unpredictable. Expect the unexpected!

Besides, who doesn't like a good surprise to cheer them up?... Or bring them down... Or whatever feeling they want...

Songs galore!

Find songs for everything. Songs for movies, Songs for tv shows, even shows for commercials.

They have videos you can watch. They have lists for everything. Like Top 20 break up songs, Top 100 Songs of the 70's, and Top 10 Baseball Songs, for example.

On each list there is an option to play a 40 second or so clip of any song listed.

There is also a forum.

Good stuff.

This website may sound self explanatory but in a way it isn't... It tells you what main events happened in your birth year. It tells you what the #1 movie was, Top Actor, Top Actress, Best Director, Bestselling book, Nobel Prize for Physics, Nobel Peace Prize, and other very random but interesting info like for my year (1983) it said the Nintendo entertainment system went on sale in Japan, Red hot chili peppers launch their first album, Michael Jacksons Thriller video is broadcast for the first time, Eastern Europe sees the collapse of Communism, The Aids pandemic begins (I didn't say they were all GOOD things that happened...), MTV is launched in the US, Gay rights become more widely accepted in the world, some bands it mentions that were popular are REM, the Pixies and Sonic Youth.

It goes into what people were wearing, what video games they were playing, what kind of music they were listening to, tons of important events and events that were surely important but maybe not well known by people born in that actual year. What was on the cover of LIFE magazine.

Remember I said what it told ME... I don't know if it will be the same info or kind of info for you...

Also goes into what movie was all the rage when I was 15 (There's something about mary). The songs playing on the radio when I was 15.

Then it says one of the most popular songs that was out in 1983 was Down Under, by Men at Work. Then it proceeds to show me the lyrics to the song and tells me to sing along. LOL.

Then it tells me what popular movie was playing when I was 9,8, and 7. Shows the cover to Beauty and the Beast.

I like the way this website is done. The way it tells you is by showing you, sentence by sentence on the screen. Little by little. And it doesnt just boringly name facts and stuff that happened, etc. It makes you nostalgic. For instance, something it said for me was:

"There's TV noise coming from the second floor. Someone turned up the volume way too high. The sun is burning from above. These were different times. The show playing on TV is The A-Team. The sun goes down. Someone switches channels. There's Hardcastle and McCormick on now. That's the world you were born in.

Progress, year after year. Do you wonder where the world is heading towards? The technology available today would have blown your mind in 1983. Do you know what was invented in the year you were born?". Then it goes into inventions... then popular comics that were out... famous people who were born that year (Samantha Mumba?)...

And at the end it says:

"It's 2011. The world is a different place. What path have you taken?"... the end.

Bring on the nostalgia.

Listen to a wall of music. Literally.

Search by genre, or enter in your mood and the site will find a wall of music to suite your chosen mood.

That pretty much sums it up. Not bad.
