Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.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.

Twitter revamps their homepage to in effort to make Twitter easier to understand.Twitter revamps their homepage to in effort to make Twitter easier to understand.

To me, this revamp is actually a much welcomed step in the right direction as you can plainly see the 'realtime-ness' that didn't appear to be there with their previous version. Trending topics scroll across in realtime along with top tweets from select users. Not bad.

Fifteen things about The Simpsons you may not have previously known about.Fifteen things about The Simpsons you may not have previously known about.

I had no idea that every Simpsons family member's middle name started with the letter J. Also it's nice to see that 'D'oh' is officially part of our English dictionary. Have you pulled a Homer today?

This particular Worth1000 contest reminds me of that Simpsons (Treehouse of Horror) episode where all of the advertising figures came to life.  'He came to life! Good for him.'

No home is truly complete unless you have an aquarium sink. For some reason I have the stange urge to watch old episodes of Pee-wee's Playhouse after looking at some of these aquariums. Not sure why.

This article seems to be geared to freelancers probably because the source website is all about freelancing. Well, I say nay to that my friends. This article can cross freelancer/worker lines and apply to anyone who happens to have an office at their job as well. I need more plants.

Although the source article is about the redesign itself, you can try out the brand new Reuters website design on their brand new website. Very clean and gives emphasis properly to what a news site is supposed to give emphasis to, the news. CNN, please study this.

Free you say? What's the catch you ask? You'll be prompted to set Google as your homepage and to give their Chrome browser a whirl if you haven't already. Not a bad tradeoff really. Merry holidays from Google to you.
