Grooveshark– This is probably one of the more popular options out there. It has a friendly user interface that is comparable to iTunes and has most of your mainstream music.

8Tracks– This is more for finding playlists than actual songs. You can search on everything from mood to time period to find a mix someone compiled. Good option if you don’t want to devote that much energy in select individual songs.

Last.FM– Another popular option here with an iPhone app even available for it. I am a fan because sometimes I just want to listen to music I know and other times I feel like finding new stuff based off of my interests. This integrates both worlds really well  and am pleased with the suggestions I have received.

Myspace– No longer competing with facebook this website is good if you want to search by a specific band/artist. Good options for both popular bands and small local venues.

Thissongissick– Minus the radio and a good amount of energy, it is not easy to find new, good music daily. This website/blog focuses on banger, house, rap and other similar types of music suggestions. This is personally a good fit for me and my friends because of all the suggestions in our favorite genres. if you do not enjoy this kind of music this will not be your site.

The White Panda– Mash! If you have the attention span of a small goldfish, this group’s website has 50+ mashes you can press play on to keep your ADHD brain entertained for days. Sometimes the mash-ups are just what you need and this group provides a large number of them for free with one click of the button.

Stumble Audio– This is a new favorite of mine. Unless you are living under a rock, you have realized EVERYTHING online is going social. This website does the same for your music and provides many options. Find what you like and share away.

Songza– The best way I can explain this website is Pandora + Facebook. You type in a song or artist and it creates a playlist for you to share with the world. There are other stations already created and you can search or suggest friends stations as well.

Musicovery– Feeling tired, energetic, calm or energetic? no matter your mood combination you can select your preference based off of this mood matrix and the website will suggest music for you. There are other options online similar to this website that have 100s of emotions and moods to chose from. In my experience this only make it less enjoyable and more time consuming.

Fizy– This is more of the jukebox version of grooveshark. Just straight music to play; simple and straight forward. This website is another simplistic format that allows you to search for both music and music videos.

Everyone tries to utilize social media marketing but very few times does it actually turn into something awesome or even remotely interesting. American Airlines nailed it and has an awesome social media campaign running where you ‘like’ the AAdvantage fb page and receive a mystery amount of miles ranging from 100-10000. It was the easiest 300 miles I have ever earned. Earn you some miles at AAdvantage

Whether you are sitting at your home or sitting at your desk the odds are you have watched an online episode of some type. Here is a list of free(ish) sites that I have found to catch that episode of True Blood or America’s Got Talent that you might have missed last week.

1. Hulu

This is where you can catch those ABC and Fox episodes you missed from last week. There are commercials that you will have to tolerate (it seems like more and more everyday) but it is a good, safe place to catch a good assortment of tv shows. A very basic movie selection as well that I really haven’t even used.

2. Channel 131

A newer discovery for me that isn’t as well organized and legit as some of the other options on this list. Either way it has HBO and Showtime episodes listed the day after and is free.

3. Surf the Channel

From A-Z this site has them all. You are able to search by show and it will give you options on what source you want to watch the episode through. You also have the option to purchase the episode from iTunes or Amazon as well if you really like the episode after you watch it.

4. OV Guide

This site is a good example of overcrowding information as it has literally everything. It is like a Google of finding movies and tv shows but you really will have to dig to find a site that will work for you and know specifically what you are looking for.

5. Yidio

I recently had a friend tell me about this site and have not used it yet but he swears by it. Pretty cool design and is comparable to MegaVideo without the time limit on watching.

6. TV Clicker

This has by far the coolest design out of all the sites and is still in the beta development stage. interesting to see what changes will be coming in the near future from this site.

7. Youtube

Everyone knows about Youtube but most people don’t realize that if you refine your searches to very specific details (“Show Title” Season X Episode X) or find a useful channel there are actually a lot of episodes online. One drawback to this is that most of the time it will be divided in parts to accommodate the size limits for Youtube.

8. TV Links

The site does exactly what the title says. There is a rating and quality column provided to help you search what episode to choose to watch.

9. TV Duck

This site is pretty basic and straightforward. I have only used it a handful of times but it work.

10. Netflix

This is more of a freeish resource as eventually you will have to pay a monthly rate to watch movies and tv online through Netflix. However, they almost always have a free trial month period that you can take advantage of if you are just looking for a short term solution.

11. MTV

I had to throw this one in for my girlfriend because if you missed the always classy Jersey Shore, you can catch it online here. The layout is a little weird but if all you need is that Guido fix this is the place to go.
