Incredibox: Each sound is assigned a man. You pick multiple sounds in a sequenced order and create a musical beat that is hard to stop listening to. It is simple and amusing

iNudge: This tool is slightly more complex but has more functionality to create something awesome. You simply pick an instrument on the side and select a grid cells to select the pitch/note. The higher on the grid, the higher the tone. Pretty simple idea that is all about layering

Drumbot: If you are looking for a little more serious musical creation Drumbot allows you to create drumbeats (the name pretty much says it all). It is straight forward and for people with more of a musical background but can be utilized by anyone.

I know there are TONS of these online and plan to update this list as I come across more in the future. Unfortunately, most are either not entertaining or don’t really provide any value, but keep posted here for the few awesome ones to be posted in the future.

A cool compilation of interesting skills some people around the world have mastered.

PF Changs – Lettuce Wraps

The dipping sauce could use a little heat but besides that this recipe is on the dot. I would recommend using Iceberg lettuce and adding red pepper flakes to the sauce for some of that heat back to the mix.

 

Cheesecake Factory – Avocado Egg Rolls

The preparation on this one took me longer than I wanted for egg rolls but if you are craving them or need a fun dinner party idea here they are.

Houston’s – Spinach Artichoke Dip

This is a family favorite  and the recipe doesn’t miss a thing (calories included).

 

Chipotle – Chicken Fajitas

Out of all the recipes this one I plan to use the most in the future. The marinade recipe here gave me the familiar heat in my chicken that I have missed since college.

McDonalds – French Fries

The recipe here isn’t the highlight. It is the additional step McDonalds throws into the mix to make their fries unique and crispy is what will change how you cook fries in the future.

This is just one of those songs that grows on you the more you listen to it. It has a nice upbeat a a good music video.

Check out Professor Longhair and Big Chief make the city their playground.
