WhoSampled.com seems to be a great site to burn time at, in the tiers of TvTropes. I found it when I was looking for more sources on a report that a sample of Navi was used in The Offspring’s “Pretty Fly for a White Guy” hit. I didn’t find Navi on the song’s page but I found the site.
Normally when I attempt to find a site listing search syntax usable on YouTube, I often get crappy results but I finally got one!

I will upload photos I take on Staten Island and in Manhattan to this gallery.
I will also get a Panoramio account so that I can get some Staten Island pics on Google Earth. Although I’m trying not to use Google services as much anymore, I decided that I will still participate in Gmail, YouTube and Google Earth.
Yahoo address is CrystalClairTNT@yahoo.com though my main one is still Crystal-Clair@hotmail.com.
The TNT stands for “The Night Troupe” which is my longest-running project so I feel after what is just about exactly 10 years, the series has become a part of me.
That account goes back FAR. However there isn’t much there, just some of my very first drawing videos and some old art.
