Friends' websites

  • YouTube - Do I really need to explain this site?
  • Facebook - I have a profile here, but to be honest, I enjoy MySpace a lot more. Facebook has too much crap on it now with all those damn games and such.
  • Project Rungay - The BEST site that dishes on the awesome show Project Runway and everything associated with it. HILARIOUS.

  • Towleroad - Another gay-themed blogger who links and discusses to most of the news going-on out there and the gay aspect of them
  • Meetup.com - If you're curious about the different social organizations/clubs in your area, check out this site. You'll find a club for nearly EVERYTHING out there. Recommended by my friend Susan!
  • AfterElton.com - Home of the Best.Gay.Week.Ever.... frequently funny but sometimes too militant about gay issues. Relax dude.
  • NotComing.com - I've linked this page directly to the Twin Peaks section which details both seasons of the show and Fire Walk With Me. There's a lot of other interesting writing about movies and TV throughout the rest of the site too, but if you love Twin Peaks, check this out!

  • Homestar Runner.com - Pure fun in animation form. Strong Bad and Homestar Runner are the best. There's LOTS to look at here.
  • RealityNewsOnline - This is THE place to read about pretty much any reality show. Lots of summary articles, opinions, etc. Definitely the place to get great reading on Survivor and the Amazing Race!
  • EFF.org - The Electronic Frontier Foundation website, which I recently discovered. It's an organization that goes out of its way to fight for and protect individual freedoms in the electronic world. Very cool.
  • Wikipedia.org - An intriguing way to have an online encyclopedia: let the public edit and contribute the topics. The community has currently over 300,000 articles.
