Musicplasma Search engine


liveplasma music, movies, search engine and discovery engine

I can't remember if I posted this already, but even if I did, it is still worth another mention. Musicplasma is this wierd search engine thingie that show connections between bands, movies, actors, and/or directors. The movie stuff is new since the last time I tried it. I dunno know about the movie part, but the music stuff is pretty cool. Give it a spin.

Yahoo! News - Texas Teens Increased Sex After Abstinence Program
