…DJ Earworm has remixed 2009?

Blame It On The Pop

Each year, DJ Earworm takes the top 25 most popular songs from the past year (according to Billboard Magazine) and creates a mashup out of them called the United States of Pop.

According to DJ Earworm:

This year in the charts, so many of the pop songs this year seem to tell the same story: Yeah, we’ve been through a lot, but right now we’re gonna celebrate with music and dance, and it’s gonna be ok. With that spirit in mind, I invite you to…BLAME IT ON THE POP

…It’s Movie Monday: JibJab 2009 Year In Reviw?

JibJab 2009 Year In Review

Every year, JibJab does a consistently hilarious look back at the year that was, and this year they’ve put together another funny montage of the things that made us laugh, cry and tweet in ’09. Enjoy:

…It’s the 2009 DYH Holiday Gift Guide?

There are plenty of Gift Guides out there for just about anyone on your list, but they’re often filled with the same old boring crap that every other Gift Guide is featuring, so this year I decided to make my own Gift Guide and fill it with ideas for things to get that special someone when you want to surprise them with something they haven’t already seen a million times before:

Gingerbread Man Anatomy Holiday Cards

Jason Freeny Holiday Cards

Jason Freeny is no stranger to DYH, but this year, he’s taken his special kind of art and created a holiday card out of the gingerbread man’s anatomy. It might not come pre-filled with warm and fuzzies, but you can guarantee Halmark’s got nothing on the uniqueness of this card!

iWallet

iWallet

It’s made of carbon fiber, it connects to your cell phone via Bluetooth to warn you if it gets stolen, and it can only be accessed with your fingerprint via a built-in biometric scanner. If anyone needs more security than that, then maybe it’s time to stop going outside.

NVIDIA GeForce 3D Glasses

NVIDIA GeForce 3D Glasses

Gaming in 2D is so 2009. In 2010, it’s time to take gaming to the next level with the GeForce 3D Glasses from NVIDIA. Using a special monitor and an IR receiver to tell distance, these glasses will allow you to see into and through the game in front of you, giving you a whole new way to experience your virtual world like never before.

La Crosse Technology Battery Charger

La Crosse Technology Battery Charger

With four individual displays to indicate the status of up to four batteries that can each be set to one of four different modes, the La Crosse Technology BC-9009 AlphaPower Battery Charger may be a bit overkill, but that’s also what makes it a must have for any gadget geek on your list.

iMo Pivot Touch

iMo Pivot Touch

What can you do with a 7” USB powered touchscreen monitor? Better question: What can’t you do with a 7” USB powered touchscreen monitor?

Chumby

Chumby

Sure, the Chumby One was released this year, and it’s cheaper and has better specs and is more gadget like, but nothing can compare to the original computer in a bean bag known as the Chumby.

Thermaltake Level 10

Thermaltake Level 10

It doesn’t look like any computer case that I’ve ever seen, but that’s what makes the Level 10 from Thermaltake so unique. Plus, for just $2,500 more, you can get it filled with all the latest guts from IBUYPOWER.

Apple Magic Mouse

Apple Magic Mouse

Having used one for more than a month, I can definitely vouch for the claim that this thing works like magic. If you’ve got a Mac head, design fan, or button-phobic person on your list, then give the gift that keeps on clicking.

Eye-Fi Memory Card

Eye-Fi

With the Eye-Fi Explore SD card, any camera can automatically geotag and upload photos and videos on the go using any available wi-fi network. If that doesn’t turn your gift recipient into a buzzing social media over-sharer, then nothing will.

Bialetti Hot Chocolate Maker

Bialetti Hot Chocolate Maker

I’ve probably made about 100 gallons of hot chocolate since I got an automatic hot chocolate maker, so if you’ve never experienced the joy that a fresh, frothy cup of hot chocolate can bring, then it’s time to give one of these to someone that will let you borrow their kitchen from time to time when the temperature drops.

Lensbaby Composer

Lensbaby Composer

The Composer is designed to give the budding photographer in your life a new eye to the world with a lens that can be tilted and shifted to any desired angle for a crazy new effect that will surely unleash the creative talents they never knew they had. That, or they’ll just get frustrated trying to figure out why their pictures never turn out the way they want and then smash their camera over your head, but those are just the risks you’re going to have to take this holiday season.

Clocky Alarm Clock

Clocky Alarm Clock

It’s a clock with a face that rolls away from you every time you try to hit the snooze button. If that doesn’t get your special someone out of bed in the morning, nothing will.

Logitech Harmony One

Logitech Harmony One

It’ll control thousands of home entertainment devices with ease using a combination of buttons and a programmable touchscreen, and it’ll look good doing it too. With the Harmony One, you’ll never have to fumble with 18 remotes and a magical button dance just to watch a DVD again.

So that’s it. See something you liked? Then be a good Santa and stop procrastinating and start Visa’ing.

…It’s Things Thursday: TOMS Shoes?

TOMS Shoes

TOMS Shoes might be made of canvas and certified vegan, but they’re also much more than that: They’re the driving force behind a movement to give the world a decent pair of shoes.

That’s because for every pair of TOMS Shoes that you buy, they’ll give a pair of TOMS Shoes to a child in need. So far, this One For One plan has given over 140,000+ pairs of shoes to children, and in 2009 alone, they plan on giving away more than 300,000 pairs.

Don’t take my word for it though. Check out the video, give the site a look, and see if your next pair of shoes should do more than just make your feet look good.

…Bar Refaeli is the 2009 Swimsuit Edition cover model?

Bar Refaeli

Hot on the heels of Marisa Miller’s appearance, Bar Refaeli has been given the honor of gracing the cover of the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

As expected, this year’s issue packs quite a few girls in, but not a lot of bikini, and Danica Patrick even makes an appearance to further remove herself from the sport that she’s supposed to be good at.
