- The top ten things one can learn from the past twenty years of television.
Presented by Homer Simpson on Late Night with David Letterman. Sadly, 'Cougar Town' is not a show about people getting attacked by giant cats.

- Engadget goes eyes-on with Samsung's new 85 inch television set.
The company calls the stand a 'timeless gallery' frame, and indeed the set would fit right in with some of the more conceptual pieces at the MoMA. Still, that easel-like design could be a bit limiting for some living rooms, so you can remove the S9 and wall-mount it -- though the 2.2 channel audio is built into that frame. Unique design aside, this TV is all about the high-end specs.

- Best Buy has the current generation Apple TV for $89 with free shipping.
Posting this here because I've grown to love this product in the few short weeks I've had it. It's a great implementation for getting your Internet media as close to your television as you would need it. My kids love watching clips on YouTube and Vimeo so having that readily available in the living room is a big plus. Also, having the entire media contents of your Mac is just great as well. Bonus: using the Apple Remote app for any of the iDevices may make you want to chuck the included remote.

- Vimeo now available on your Apple TV thanks to latest software update.
Vimeo has some great HD content, it's nice to see this appear on the little black TV box from Apple. Besides the welcomed support of Vimeo to this little device, you can also stream your purchased television shows directly from the cloud. This will work for your previously purchased television shows as well which is nice.

- Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.
This is an interesting / fun video for anybody who happens to be a fan of The Simpsons. Dan Castelleneta does an alarmingly high number of voices on the show (somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-15 characters). Fun fact, you'll usually see a random Simpsons quote (less random now with the new design) in the header of GLM. Guess the episode, win a cookie.

- Fourteen hilarious photos of dog faces to brighten up your afternoon.
I'm going to preface this link description with the following advisory message: if you have found that your afternoon is sufficiently bright enough already than by all means feel free to bookmark this link for later. Otherwise, if the brightness levels are not at the required level of preferred enjoyability then go ahead and view some dog-foolery with this collection of canine camera work. OMG, cupcake!

- Some casting news for next season of Game of Thrones for those interested.
After seeing the first season I've been hooked on this show and can't wait for season two (which will most likely surface next year). The books are also a fun read as well and I recommend them to anyone looking to pick up on their summer reading. If you are more of a summer television watcher then go watch the series, you won't be disappointed.

- National Geographic provides a top ten list for pretty much any travel idea.
Thinking of a planning a boat trip in Venice? Want to visit some famous boardwalks all across the United States? Whatever it is you happen to be looking for chances are you'll at least find a little travel inspiration with one these lists. Personally, I enjoy looking at some of these exotic beach locales (as evidenced by the chosen thumbnail).

- Next version of iOS to bring bluetooth keyboard support to the Apple TV.
Navigating around on Apple TV isn't exactly all that fun of an experience. Adding the ability for a keyboard (or some other form of navigation device) would definetly be helpful. Interesting to note that 9to5mac also points to rumors of an updated Apple TV coming out sometime this fall.

- No day is ever complete without a Star Wars a capella light saber battle and accompanying soundtrack.
The fun begins about fifteen seconds in if you can't see the giant visual countdown over the video. In a rare instance I find myself agreeing with some of the YouTube comments. So yes, please make more of these and apply this effect to even better movies. Edit: spoke to soon, there is already a Matrix version out there.

- Ten reasons why we hate Facebook as presented by puppet comedy duo Glove and Boots.
And I now have a new favorite show on YouTube. My favorite part of this video probably has to be the gorilla shouting BLOG to start it all off (the origins of which can be traced back to their video called 'What is Blog?'). To view more of Glove and Boots follow along on their channel.
