What happens when you crash into a comet?

Daily links... what are yours?

Sure, we all know Memepool and Slashdot (no need to even bother linking these). But what are your obscure (read: unknown to me) daily click addictions?

One of mine is APOD: Astronomy Picture of the day. Today, for instance: What happens when you crash into a comet? I don't miss a DAY of this page.

I also check Travis Ruse's site a lot. He's the one who takes a picture every day of his ride on the subway.

Let's get a thread going on this one.

I've got pretty much a metric ton of stuff I check every day. Mostly comics, but a few others...
Criterion Forum, really good for DVD news. (along the same lines, TV Shows on DVD and Digital Bits.

Blogwise, Slacktivist, Phancy.com, Wasters Of Cinema, WebSnark (about webcomics), Paul Collins' Blog, "Weekend Stubble", the Bulldada Newsblog, Rodney Anonymous Tells You How To Live (Rodney from the Dead Milkmen), Dr. Frank (from the Mr. T Experience), and basically my livejournal page. Also, David Byrne's Tour Diary/Journal. And Last Plane to Jakarta by John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats.

Some random stuff, like the MST3K Info Site, and Polysics' English-language tour diary. And a Minus 5 News/Fan Page. Along with the Residents ' Bog, and The Howling Fantods, a David Foster Wallace news site.

Comics wise, I'm only gonna mention a few, because pretty much the entire wodge of them would be too much, I think. But I particularly love Achewood, Wigu, Sam & Fuzzy, Shinpad, and Hound's Home.

Actually, a little while ago, I just pasted in the HTML for my browser's start page to a Livejournal post. So, if you want, like, the Compleat Thing, it's there. (There's some local-Seattle-Only-Stuff, too, that I didn't mention, since I figure most folks here don't care about what the Grand Illusion is showing, heh.)

So, yeah... and then, of course, there's the big ones, Memepool, Plastic, MeFi. But, yeah, no point in linking those, since everyone knows them.

Here's a couple interesting sites that i hit every couple of dys or so...

1. Hanzi Smatter, which is a site that identifies misused/mistaken/misinterpreted Japanese & Chinese characters in pop culture, especially tattoos. Scroll thru his archives and you'll find that plenty of people aren't getting the phrase/word/whatever that they think they're getting.

2. ALien Loves Predator. Amusing cartoon involving the title characters and their escapades in New York.

Oh, I've got Hanzi Smatter on an LJ feed, too, actually, so that's pretty cool. It's really interesting, but sometimes the tone of the writing really makes me wanna smack him. Sometimes he sounds really, really full of himself, although, I suppose that might also have to do with the fact that he probably gets fifty emails a day saying "dear timm i got a tato i think its 'peace and lov' but my frinds say its 'butts' who is rite thanx!11", which'd probably get to me, too, heh.

Salon, Slate, Cursor, PitchforkMedia, PopMatters, Stylus Magazine, Dusted Magazine, TV Spy, The Sims 2 BBS.. Lately I hit a lot of the blogs linked from Cursor, like South Knox Bubba, DailyKos, AMERICAblog, Neal Pollack, and random others.

One site I DON'T hit anymore that used to be a daily read for me is lileks.com, home page of James Lileks, a columnist and author in Minneapolis. He's a funny guy with a wicked sense of retro-liciousness, but when 9/11 happened, he suddenly morphed into a flag-waving, Muslim-hating, protestor-bashing nutjob. It was shocking and sad to see... I stuck with him for awhile, but during the "marketing phase" of the Iraq war, I just couldn't take anymore and deleted him from my bookmarks. I still miss the guy, and occasional peeks at his site show that he's calmed down a bit, but he seems to be prosperous in his new role as a right-wing gasbag, so I doubt he'll be giving it up anytime soon, which is sad.
