This is Awesome… Play, Create and Share Realistic Looking Jigsaw Puzzles Online

When I come across something that I classify as “awesome”, I want to share it with my readers right away! Some of you may like jigsaw puzzles and some of you may not; however, you have to take a look at this online (virtual) version of jigsaw puzzles called Jigsaw Planet (by Tibo Software).

Briefly, I am familiar with Tibo Software’s Jigsaw Puzzle software and highly recommend it if you are into this sort of thing. The online version that they have created is the best out there (in my opinion) in coming very close to the real jigsaw puzzles that we put together out of the box.

Tibo - Jigsaw Planet

To play (or try) the online version, simply visit jigsawplanet.com and select one of the puzzles they have available. This will give you an idea of what I am talking about; but, if you sign up for an account this opens the door for a whole lot more such as uploading your own photos to create your own jigsaw puzzles that can be shared with others (by simply emailing them a link to the puzzle you created).

Also, account holders can create puzzle albums and customize the puzzles to determine the shape, number of pieces, sharing options, etc…; and, to make things more challenging, you can create puzzles where the pieces can be rotated by picking up the pieces by left clicking the mouse and rotating the piece by right clicking the mouse. I think this feature of rotating the pieces is unheard in comparison to other online jigsaw puzzles I have tried.

Account holders also have the luxury that once you start a puzzle, the puzzle is automatically saved, no matter where you leave off. If you log off or leave the site, when you come back and log in, your puzzle is there where you left it (with the pieces intact). Another feature here is that the pieces look real and you can go full screen (without ads)… I think, once you get in there with this, you will be bookmarking this jigsaw app.

Revisit Van Halen’s Eruption With This Young Girl’s YouTube Video

Today’s topic is off topic; but, is a sensational off topic. If you grew up in my generation of the 1970’s, then you are familiar with Van Halen. If you are familiar with Van Halen, then surely you are familiar with his solo guitar performance of Eruption, which is second on the Guitar World’s list of the 50 best.

I want you to take a minute, or approximately a minute and a half and watch a young girl named Tina take us back in time, by playing Eruption, in this YouTube video

Published on YouTube on May 20, 2013

“Eruption” solo played by Tina (14 y.o.), teached and filmed by Renaud Louis-Servais ( http://www.youtube.com/renaudls )
Guitar model: Vigier Excalibur Custom.

[VIDEO] WALMARTians (AKA: People of Walmart)

I am sure, here in the States, you will be doing that last minute shopping for that 4th of July grilling party and one of your stops will most likely be at the Walmart monopoly.  As a result of the monopoly, every Tom, Dick, and Harriet, who once visited the local (now defunct) Mom and Pop stores, have no choice but to venture out into public view as, Walmartians (aka: The People of Walmart).

I routinely receive chain emails with updated versions of The People of Walmart and have come to the conclusion it is our humanistic way of making fun of ourselves in an economic environment that is now controlled by people of wealth.

To keep the humor going, here is a YouTube music video of the People of Walmart (by Jessica Frech).  Be sure to visit Jessica’s Website [HERE] – and have a Happy and Safe 4th!

A FREE Online Radio Player with Album Art

My “go to” online internet radio source is RadioTuna. It has been my favorite for nearly a year and half. As a matter of fact I did a blog post on Radio Tuna back in January 2010 [ CLICK HERE ] .

I recently noticed that RadioTuna now has a desktop player, called RadioTuna Player that is available as a download and install on your PC.  The player eliminates the need to open your web browser and go to the RadioTuna site to play your music.

RadioTuna Player

The player is pretty simple to use and has the following key features:

Browse Over 300+ genres

Save Preset Stations

Hotkey Support

Album Art

RadioTuna also has a FREE radio widget that can be embedded on your website or blog.

Entanglement – A New Twist In Online Gaming

You have to give this game a try.  It is called Entanglement and you play it in your web browser.

I was not able to find any specific instructions, but once you play around with it you will become submersed in the gameplay.  It may have something to do with the mesmerizing background music and the fact that Entanglement is just plain challenging (and fun).

Entanglement

The game looks like a honeycomb and if you notice in the above graphic of Entanglement you will see a gray hexagon area and a brownish red hexagon area (called the wall). The gray area is the playing area where you will receive tiles with squiggly lines (called paths) on them. When you receive a tile you can rotate the tiles with your mouse scroll wheel or the arrow keys on your keyboard. The objective is to connect the squiggly lines on the tiles to create a path and not come in contact with the red hexagon area (called the wall). Points are accumulated as you play. This game is new to me and I am still learning, but I have found it is not easy and requires strategic thinking on your part.  Really tests my short attention span : )

Note: Entanglement is engineered using HTML5. That means you will need an HTML5 compatible browser (such as the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari or the beta of Internet Explorer 9).

A Grab Bag Selection of GREAT Online Computer Games

I recently went on the hunt for some online (cloud based) computer games. As you well know, there are numerous online gaming sites; however, most are laden with numerous advertisements and questionable tactics to draw you in. What I was looking for were individualized and specialized games that you play in your web browser (in a full screen or near full screen mode), that would make you stand back in awe, and did not require an online account.

Windows 7 card game Icon

Reflected below are links to the sites for the games that I was able to locate. If you know of other online games, that meets the criteria I have indicated, by all means share them with us by commenting below. You will notice I have not provided any description for the games. This is like a grab bag; reach in, click on the links, and be surprised.
