It’s Friday! Katy Perry, Rebecca Black and MTV

It’s Friday, Friday so we-we-we- are going to talk about music videos. This week music video fans celebrated the 30th Birthday of MTV. As you might have forgotten, MTV actually stands for “Music Television” and when they launched the channel back in 1981 it was all about music videos. Great music videos. The only way someone like Snooki would have appeared on MTV “back in the day” would have been on the hood of a car in a WhiteSnake video. But I digress…

The popularity of MTV sparked a golden age of music videos which arguably continues to this day. Now we get our fix of music videos at websites (including Myxer) and we go to MTV for more sophisticated programming like Teen Mom and Jersey Shore. Sure, the “M” may be long gone from MTV, but the style of fun, creative, storytelling music videos that MTV helped propagate is happily alive and well. Take Katy Perry… (which is what Russel Brand did…) Katy Perry is fast becoming the queen of fun music videos and her popular “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)” is a comic classic reminiscent of some of the MTV greats. Celebrity cameos have long been a popular feature of hit videos, and Last Friday Night is not shy about packing the party with appearances by Rebecca Black, Glee’s Darren Criss and Kevin McHale, Hanson, Deborah Gibson and Corey Feldman, and it even practices safe Sax with Kenny G. See if you can spot them all!

ONE MORE THING….

For those of you who may not be music video or Katy Perry fans, far be it from us to leave you feeling left out. In addition to MTV’s birthday, this week is also SHARK WEEK! If jaws and teeth are more your thing, here’s an awesome animated Shark screensaver, guaranteed not to bite! Enjoy.

You’ve Got 404: The 411 on 404 Error Pages

Have you ever clicked on a bad link and ended up at a web page that didn’t exist? Wait a minute…  Unless you break the space-time continuum it would be impossible to visit a web page that didn’t exist… Let’s start over…

Have you ever clicked on a bad link and ended up at an error page telling you the page you were looking for didn’t exist? Chances are you’ve encountered the infamous “404″ or “Not Found” error message on more than a few occasions. 404 is an HTTP standard response code indicating that your browser found the web server it was looking for, but it did not find the particular page you were looking for.  Because it is so commonly encountered, many websites have taken to creating their own custom 404 Error pages, turning an otherwise unsatisfying experience into a chance to inform or entertain a misplaced visitor to their website.  There are many great examples of creative 404 Error pages and some really funny 404 error pages that are sure to make you smile.

Not ones to be outdone when it comes to creative fun, the Myxer team has taken the custom 404 Error page to new heights!  We have created our own 404 Error Page ringtone so that if you do end up at a digital dead end, you can at least grab a cool piece of mobile content before you go on your merry way!  Even better, you can grab the embed code for the “You’ve Got 404″ ringtone and put it on your own website’s 404 Error page too!

Hopefully you won’t encounter our 404 page in the wild and your visits to Myxer will remain error free.  With that in mind you can still download or grab the “You’ve Got 404″ ringtone from the widget below.  Make no mistake about it, it’s an awesome ringtone.  Check it out, and if you do use it on your own 404 page, let us know and leave us a link to your site in the comments.

“What’s Bettah” Than A World Premiere Bikini Video?

Life’s a beach!  At least it is for the Myxer team, since we are fortunate to have our offices across the street from one of Florida’s nicest stretches of silky sand.  Given the tropical locale of Myxer HQ we see a lot of bikini’s in the neighborhood (and our fair share of board shorts, baggies and the occasional Speedo).  Thanks to our good friends over at Bikini.com we’re going to give you a chance to see some of the fun in the sun with the WORLD PREMIERE of a new music video, “What’s Bettah?”

It’s A Tough Job, But Someone’s Gotta Do It…

With tongue firmly planted in cheek, “What’s Bettah?” actually tells the story of what it’s like for a recent college grad to land a job working all day with bikini models.  According to the Bikini.com team:

What happens when a junior producer at Bikini.com writes a song about his adventures hanging out with some of the hottest swimsuit models in the world?

Alex “AKMontilla” Montilla, a recent graduate from the University of Miami, was working at Bikini.com as a video editor and cameraman, when he was inspired to write a song about his experience. The song was a hit at the office, and he got permission to take it to the next step and create a music video with some of his favorite Bikini.com models.  The resulting video is “What’s Bettah?”…

“What’s Bettah?” will makes its world premiere this Saturday, March 5th at 12:01 AM EST on Myxer.com Don’t miss it!

While you are waiting for the premiere of “What’s Bettah?” you can download this:

5 Ways Your Mobile Phone Can Make You A Better Lover

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, surely love is in the air and we are all getting in touch with our inner cupid.  While we may not be wandering around equipped with a sling full of heart tipped arrows, we do have another tool in hand that can be used to spread the love – our mobile phones! You may already think your smartphone is smart, but did you know it can work wonders on your relationship with that significant other?

Here are 5 Ways Your Mobile Phone Can Make You A Better Lover:

5. Text Sweet Nothings in His/Her Ear – Text messages are a great way to let your love know you are thinking of them, anytime, and by definition, an SMS message has to be short and sweet.  There are few easier ways to bring a smile to that someone special’s face than to send them an unexpected “I <3 U!” or “U R Beautiful” or a simple “Thinking of you… right now…

4. Send A  Wallpaper or Ringtone – We love to personalize our phones with images and sounds that mean something special to us, so why not share the love by sending your sweetheart a Romantic Ringtone or Whimsical Wallpaper that will make them think of you every time they look at their phone or get a call or message.  Myxer makes it easy to find just the right mobile content and use “Send to Friend” to share it with the one(s) you love.

3. Use “Vibrate” For A Neck Massage – We all enjoy a good neck massage from our partner.  Next time you are offering up a bit of manual stress relief, surprise them with some added good vibrations from your phone.

2. Send A Video Or Image Of Yourself – Sometimes we forget that we are almost always walking around with a camera and camcorder in our pockets.  It takes just a moment to snap a picture or record a video message and send it to the object of your affection.  Be creative.  Hold up a piece of paper with a handwritten sign saying “I Love You.”  Sing a few bars of his/her favorite song in a video.  Send a picture of flowers, or a place you pass that means something special to you both.  (FRIENDLY WARNING: Don’t abuse the ease of sending images and video by sharing something inappropriate or that you will likely one day regret…)

1. And, of course, the number one way your mobile phone can make you a better lover…. TURN IT OFF when you are with your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse and make them, not your phone, the object of both your attention and your affection!

Do you have more tips on how you use your phone for romance?  Please share them in the comments!  And with or without your phone, have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

And you can start using your phone to be a better lover by sending this to someone special:
