An Explosion of Awesome

Our office is exploding with awesome. And you guys are responsible.

Here’s the thing: You Sparklers have sent us soooo much cool stuff that we just can’t keep it in any longer. Some of the links haven’t appeared on Awesome Thing of the Week because they’ve been viewed a zillion times, or because they are a teensy bit too raunch for daytime TV internet. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t awesome!!!

The following is a list of links that are pretty amazing, but for one reason or another didn’t get featured as an official Awesome Thing. We figured it would be better to make room in our inbox for new stuff in 2010 rather than keep hopeful Sparklers waiting to hear about that thing they sent us in July.

As always, we welcome your favorite links and YouTube videos at Now that we’ve cleaned out the box, we have more room than ever to take your suggestions!
