These are a few of my favorite websites, because, well because I felt like posting a list of my favorite websites that’s why. Some of them are a little off the wall, some of them are popular, others you probably may not have heard of if you have never heard of a “fatty,” or are not a big fan of atheism, environmentalism, darwinism, or any other -ism that goes against right-wing, conservative “family values.”
I spend an awful lot of time researching on the internet, and I am pretty sure 99% of the internet is garbage, but there are some extremely informative and entertaining sites in the other 1%. There is no rhyme or reason to this list other than I think they are some of the best websites on the internet. Enjoy !
I like hubpages because it is probably the easiest way of becoming an internet publisher – you need almost zero internet skills, there is a helpful community of users and you can earn some pockey money through google adsense, amazon and ebay. Don’t go there expecting to make millions though. If your goal is to make money on the internet, it is probably going to be 1,000,000 times more difficult than you may have been led to believe by the ebook sales brigade. Hubpages.
Dark Roasted Blend
It is hard to classify dark roasted blend as a “type” of website. They describe themselves as “Weird and wonderful things,” which about sums it up. Not your normal sort of blog, and worth a visit – although don’t blame me if you end up losing hours of your time looking through their photo collections. Dark Roasted Blend.
Another slightly off-the-wall website, this one is aimed at providing the strangest environmental news, such as the fact that in “some place called the UK,” wind turbines are a threat to national security because they interfere with radar and prevent those bastions of the free world from protecting Europe against the evil-doers. Sheesh, I think I despise my government more every day ! WebEcoist.
I love BBQ – anyone who knows me knows this. But there are extremes to everything. These guys are BBQ fanatics, and can do some pretty amazing things with bacon. If you thought the bacon and cheese roll I featured a while ago was a little over-the-top, wait until you check out their “Bacon Explosion,” otherwise known as a “Fatty.” I have yet to try their “Burnt Finger BBQ Sauce,” but maybe they will send me a freebie now? BBQ Addicts.
A while ago I wrote an article about the “sexiest football photos on the planet,” which featured a bunch of Asian girls playing football in the mud. Well, chrome productions have gone one better. They have produced a video based on the idea. Not only that, but they have some awesome software that prevents you from embedding the video or helping yourself by downloading it. Not quite sure how they managed that, but technically skilled, I am not. Pay them a visit to see this one and some other great videos. Chrome productions.
The Ludwig Von Mises Institute
Those of you who have read much of my other work will know I am not a huge fan of the current governmental system we have created for ourselves. It is theoretically fantastic. Democracy, by the people for the people and all that stuff. Pity all our politicians are fucking liars out to fill their own pockets at the expense of, well at the expense of anyone they can squeeze money out of actually. One of the ways they do this is by propagating a bunch of myths about the world, economics, exterior threats and just about anything else they can get away with feeding us a line of bullshit on. Gordon Brown is my favorite current fucking liar. The man is incredible. After helping to bring about one of the biggest economic disasters since the south sea bubble, he is now suggesting he has been warning about a bubble for ten years. Anyway, if you are interested in having a few of those myths dispelled and explained in understandable terms, pay these guys a visit and educate yourself. Ludwig von Mises Insitute.
Speaking of videos, which I wasn’t (nice segueway huh?) Sean Stanley, the Luxury film video guru who helped me to connect a Sony handycam to a macintosh computer is now a featured video professional on one of my current favorite sites – Video pros. Now these videos I can embed. Pay them a visit if you are in any way interested in the future of online video. VideoPros.
Limk= Life Is Meaningless Kebab. They describe themselves as a “spare time terminator,” so if you feel like using up the rest of your spare time, head on over to LIMK and terminate it. I won’t even bother trying to explain the strange stuff they have – see for yourself. LIMK
They Lie We Die
Political cartoons. The name pretty much sums it up. If you were daft enough to get your brains blown out fighting for oil in Iraq, you probably won’t enjoy this site…….. They Lie We Die.
QUIDQUID LATINE DICTUM SIT, ALTUM VIDETUR
Speaking of cartoons, which I was, this is an awesome collection of comic books, videos, strage photos and cartoons, which also explains the odd photo of Superman at the top of the post. Enjoy !PhotoGnome.
