When you are really really tired at the HOFF

I had heard about this but it was nothing I was prepared for. Last week in Miami when we were really tired at work and needed a breather a colleague of mine brought up the HOFF in Youtube. For the ignorant, that's David Hasselhoff. And he's supposedly huge in Germany not for Baywatch but for his songs. And the videos really take the cake - they are so funny and funnier if you have people around trying to mimic him. So go and watch for yourselves:

This one is just weird - so weird but has a catchy beat - he is wearing a parka, eating a fish, flying in the air etc etc.

This one reminds me of Baba Sehgal's 'Aa ja mere gaadi mein' song. Aptly titled too - jump in my car!!

World Cup Cricket - Live streaming

I knew that it was going to be difficult for me to see the world cup this year and my cable network (Time Warner) doesn't carry it here in USA. And DIRECTV and DISHTV are charging close to $200 for the whole package.

So as usual I did some R&D and this is what you need to do if you don't want to cough up $200 or you network doesn't carry it and you can live with live streaming on your laptop/PC:

1. Download Sopcast first. This is a P2P streaming software like the TVU Player but has more channels.
2. Then go to Live-from-India website and look for streaming links for CBN.

I have set that up and its working absolutely fine for me.

Let me know if this works. The only small downside to this is that you might need some buffering from time to time. And please note, you would need a high speed connection for this.

The above doesn't work all the time - right now I'm watching it on Muftavideos.
