Websites that I keep bookmarked.

Written by February 5, 2010

Hey bloggers! I thought I would share some of the websites that I regularly visit. Some of them are more for entertainment purposes than others, but they’re all definitely worth checking out.

1. Fark

"It’s not news, it’s Fark." Fark is a news aggregator and an edited social networking news site (it’s kind of like the Spokeo of news sites in a way). Fark displays news articles, which are mostly hilarious or bizarre, sent in by readers. Be sure to check out the comments, which are usually really entertaining.

2. Badmovies.org

I’m a fan of film, including b-movies. Badmovies.org compiles a list of horribly awesome b-movies, and provides reviews and ratings for all of them. There are definitely good b-movies, and there are also terrible, hard-to-watch b-movies; the site let’s you know which category each film falls under. The reviews are hysterical, and are fun to read even if you don’t plan on watching the movie.

3. Cute Overload

Cuteoverload.com searches the web to consolidate the cutest of the cute pictures and videos of animals. It’s not those "LOLZ I HAZ A CHEEZEBURGER" pictures, but rather really adorable and entertaining pictures and videos that really make you laugh or say "awwwww." It’s a feel-good website, and if you don’t like baby animals then the only I have to say to you is, "I’m sorry."

4. NPR

NPR is my favorite news site. They offer broad views on an assortment of topics, and have great talk/audio sections including "all things considered." Besides the news and politics, they also have really great arts and music sections, and include exclusive first listens to new artists and a new "song of the day" each day to listen to. The website is really well put together, and the interviews and radio station are worth a listen as well.

More to come later! Feel free to share some of your favorite websites.

    That rss page on your website here is splendid, you should tell more folks about it in your upcoming post. I haven’t noticed it a first, now I’m using it each morning to check on any updates. I’m on a rattling slow dial-up connection in Ohio and it’s rather discouraging to sit there and wait for such a long time ’til the page loads… but hey, I just found your rss page and added it to the Google Reader and voil? – I’m always up-to-date! Well pal, keep up the good work and make that rss button a little bigger so that other people can enjoy that as well 😛

    Dear Eileen,

    Spokeo offers free name and phone searches, that display a large portion of the results that you would receive if you paid for a membership. However, you do need to pay if you wish to receive the full available results. Due to the nature of our searches, Spokeo can’t guarantee results or accuracy for the results that are found. However, with a paid membership, you also will have access to our email searches.

    Thank you.

    Damn, very nice website. I actually came across this on Ask Jeeves, and I am happy I did. I will definately be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the post and bring a bit more to the table, but am just absorbing as much info as I can at the moment.
