    Smile Awesome websites you visit every day

    It looks like there are a few other threads like this, but they are a few years old, so I thought I'd start a new one.

    My faves are:
    Dlisted - needs no explaining
    Dlisted | Be Very Afraid
    Buzzfeed - mostly for the hipster crowd, maybe 50 percent good content on a good day, but moves fast. keeps you up on memes
    BuzzFeed
    Cracked - humor site focused on 30 year old men, but many women read it too. very intelligent forums, besides some trolls. Several posts a day
    Article Archive | Cracked.com
    Weburbanist - awesome site, encourage you to check it out. Huge archives of urban exploration, architecture, art. I wish I could figure out how to embed some of their articles in GR forums. Here is a recent favorite of mine:
    Starry Knights: 14 Stellar Star-Shaped Fortresses | Design + Ideas on WU
    Webecoist - sister site of weburbanist, not as good imo. Still, same quality of pictures and text. Big archive.
    20 Bad Green Ideas & Failed Eco-Innovations | WebEcoist
    Oddee - top ten lists of interesting/weird/useless facts. some of it is stupid, I admit, but it updates every day. Archives will keep you entertained for hours.
    10 Craziest New Types of Tattoos - Oddee.com
    Regretsy - crappy/strange things that are handmade on etsy.com. I heard about it on here, so I assume most of you have heard about it. There is a similar site, Craftastrophe , that doesn't post as often, but is much older.
    Regretsy - Where DIY Meets WTF
    Go Fug Yourself - I'm sure most of you know about this. I wish it updated on weekends.
    Go Fug Yourself: Because Fugly Is The New Pretty
    Pajiba - snarky movie review site. The seriously random lists are my favorite. Fun commenters. Some seriously bitchy reviews (well-written, though). Well the tagline for the site is Scathing reviews. Bitchy People. so you get what you came for.

    What are your favorite gossip/nongossip sites?

    FFFFOUND!

    Just an awesome website that pulls and collates interesting art, typography, and other assorted design-wonk stuff from around the world.

    i love ffffound. i just feel like saving every single picture on to my hard drive.

    i love dlisted. it's what i read every morning while having my coffee, and throughout the day, checking for updates.

    slate.com, huffingtonpost, jezebel and salon.com

    paige + modern has some really
    interesting stuff. also a nice mix of design, typography, curio, old photos, etc... she's been slacking off lately and not posting very often but the archives are full of good stuff.
    http://paigeandmodern.com/

    goldenfiddle used to be one of my favourite blogs. it's currently offline and supposed to come back re-vamped some time soon but in the mean time spencer sloan has some of his stuff on here: http://spencersloan.com/ and it's pretty cool but not as awesome as the old blog which was a mix of graphic design, music, celebrity gossip and absurd humour.

    martin klasch: interesting images of all kinds, whether it's album covers, old posters, book covers, etc, etc...

    dlisted sometimes is what I need to get me through the day. I love reading it first thing in the morning. Michael K seems to put so much time into it.

    huffpo is sinking a little, imo. It's all about tabloid stuff and shocking headlines now, ie. Check out Kate Middleton's new BLING! I was glued to it during the Iran elections.

    Another vote for dlisted. I also check The Straight Dope - Fighting Ignorance Since 1973 and their message boards.

    I visit dlisted.com, myfamily.com (the best way my 11 siblings and our families share photos and news) and regretsy.com.

    I know there are others I visit every day, but these are a must.
