What’s your favorite web site?

Well, we had a great segment on Friday about web sites and where our listeners like to go on the Internet. Thanks again to Hillary Grant for dropping by and sharing her favorites. Here’s the list we can up with:

A site I visit daily is http://www.rtumble.com, a compilation of all newspaper and magazine articles in the country about California. It provides you with an up-to-the-minute snapshot about what’s happening around the state. I’m also a huge fan of http://www.laobserved.com which focuses on everything and anything happening in Los Angeles. Any movie lover will want to visit http://rottentomatoes.com, a site that compiles all print and online reviews of new movies the day they’re released. They also link you to every movie reviewer so you can read it for yourself.

Hillary had some interesting choices. I have to go visit http://www.comedycollege.publicradio.org, where they keep an archive of live material from famous comedians of the 20th century. Hillary also suggests a stop at http://TVHistory.tv to see the shooting sets of famous TV shows. People interested in movie research need to stop by http://www.imdb.org, the most exhaustive index to people in the movies that I’ve seen. It’s a very comprehensive site.

Many web sites mentioned draw from current events. http://www.crooksandliars.com specializes in video clips designed to show public figures and media types caught in the act. Pretty funny. Pretty sad. Another great one is http://www.thesmokinggun.com which specializes in providing legal documents on headline cases and current events — they smashed open the lies surrounding James Frey, for instance.

Other current events-themed sites include http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com, http://www.thedrudgeretort.com, http://rawstory.com, http://www.commondreams.com and http://www.buzzflash.com. Brett in SLO liikes to go to http://www.sailanarchy.com and participate in the political discussions.

Other sites from our callers. http://www.allrecipes.com speaks for itself. You can find stuff for cheap on sale by our government courtesy of http://www.publicsurplus.com. Also look into http://www.endtime.com to see if the end of the world actually is coming.

Concerned that a convicted sex offender may be lurking in your neighborhood? Check out http://www.watchdogus.com and get a complete list.

George from San Luis offered a couple I hadn’t heard of before, including http://www.ursi’sblog.com (not sure if the apostrophe belongs there, or not) and http://www.robotwisdom.com, which George claims links to everything.

A couple listeners mentioned http://www.snopes.com as a great way of tracking rumors and urban legends. Finally, Tom tossed out a few interesting ones, including http://www.fark.com and http://www.geeks.com. He made a great suggestion in http://www.woot.com which posts one item and one item only for sale each night. They usually sell out of the good items pretty fast.

Remember, the Internet is your friend. And, yes, I’m still hearing that “any day now” even The Big Broadcast will be streaming on the Internet. Be patient!

    No, not sailyanarchy– http://www.sailinganarchy.com. Go to the politcal forum and get ready to defend your statements or get shot down in flames.
