One of my favorite Michael Jackson songs is Human Nature. I love the melody and arrangement. Even how many times and ways this song has been revived, rearranged and performed, it's still a great song. I'd like to share Craig David's version of Human Nature with Michael Jackson and SWV's versions both fused together into a melodic acoustic performance. Enjoy !

I haven't had time to actually play any full-length video games. I miss the times I'd spend hours playing a video game from start to end. The satisfaction of completing each level gets more intense as the harder the gameplay gets. And discovering what challenges are in store during the game is a thrill.
Nowadays, I need more time for other stuff and so the least I can do to still play some games is via an online game called MyBrute. It's basically a 2-D fighting game similar to Street Fighter & Mortal Kombat. Customize your character, choose your opponents and sit back and watch as your character will challenge your opponent until a winner emerges. The great thing about it is that it doesn't require any skill on your end to memorize keys to walk, run, jump, attack or defend. Everything is automated. All you need to do is cheer for your character and hope he makes you proud. If you haven't tried it out, you can try it out here and click on the left character to create your own. You can challenge me too at http://jaydj.mybrute.com
Happy MyBruting !

I've been using Windows 7 since beta release till the release candidate (RC). And I must admit that I love it. It's a huge boost from XP Home and Vista.
One of the things I found strange though is there will come a point in time that your program list in your start menu will suddenly disappear. This occurs due to a 70 file/folder limit in the Start Menu directory so your "All Programs" from the "Start Menu" is limited only to 70 items, both files, folders and shortcuts. The solution is to keep files, shortcuts and programs in subdirectories and maintain the folder limit. This is also a great way of classifying your apps. My start menu has an audio, graphics, video, editor, OCR and browser folder, so I can easily classify my programs.
To solve this limitation, you can create subdirectories in C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/ and transfer your files, folders & shortcuts to their respective subdirectories. If you can't see the "ProgramData" subdirectory, enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives" in "Control Panel" / "Folder options" / "View".
Happy foldering !

Don't have a set of drums ? Wanna be a drummer but never tried ?
Then this t-shirt is perfect for you. Imagine wearing a drumset. Impossible ? Not with this t-shirt. The shirt has a picture of a drumset. But the "whoa!" factor comes into play the moment you tap on each drum... it plays !
You can play the drums just by tapping them on your chest. There are 7 different drums in all. Check out this cool demo on how it works. I can imagine dancing and rapping while playing drums on your chest as rhythm.
Don't you just love technology !

One of the very first pay per views (aside from Summerslam) for the WWE was The Royal Rumble. It is until now my most favorite wrestling event. Imagine 30 wrestlers getting into the ring by luck of a draw. And every 2 minutes, another wrestler steps into the ring until all 30 enter and then it's by elimination over the top rope. The last man standing wins.
It's exciting to see instant teamups, and who wants to eliminate who as everybody is out their for themself. You can witness friends, partners & teammates go up against each.
Here's a preview of the 2010 Royal Rumble. Are you ready to rumble ????
