I am currently compiling a list of some great websites to visit for different topics and am wondering what everybody here has to say on the subject.

If you want to suggest one please do it in the following order so it makes it easier for me to add them to the list.

Category | Name/Link | Description

A example of how the list will look:

Well, I've got a few here. I don't visit all of them all the time, but some have some mind-blowing information. I'm leaving out a lot, but these are the sites that I probably visit most and that are probably of broader interest to people -- mostly those that are interested in what is going on in the world.

I could post a bunch more, but this is enough. I'm skipping most of the programming stuff because most people here already use the same sites and know them well.

My ratings are all from extensive use of the sites.

News Info WarsExcellent site dedicated to news on what is actually happening in the world.5
News Activist PostExcellent site with news across the spectrum. Includes many editorials. Setup as a blog. 5
News Russia TodayOne of the best news sites out there. Regularly exposes the complete insanity that has infected the West. RT broadcasts "The World Tomorrow" with Julian Assange. You can view the show at the RT site. Television programs often feature some extremely knowledgeable guests. Some fairly regular guests include Gerald Celente and Alex Jones. Max Keiser does a segment on RT. Adam Kokesh used to have a regular show on RT.  5
News Adam vs. The ManAdam Kokesh is ex-US military and runs a libertarian news show/blog/podcast. His YouTube channel has many videos of his shows. Dedicated to libertarian ideals - freedom, freedom, and freedom. 5
News Natural NewsNews site dedicated to health related information. Includes editorials and information that goes unreported in mainstream media.5
News Before Its NewsNews aggregation site with editorials. Includes many conspiracy theories, some of which are seriously wacky, though most are either plausible or widely accepted as fact.4
News David Icke .comDavid Icke's personal site. It includes a lot of news that you will find on other sites like the Activist Post or Info Wars, but also links to much of his own materials. 4
News End the LieAlternative news site dedicated to reporting what is actually happening. The editor comes out with some fantastic matieral. Includes links to videos, etc. 5
News The Drudge ReportNews aggregation of stories from all over. Includes minor gossip. Exposes corruption in government and corporations on a regular basis, similar to the Activist Post and Info Wars.
News Natural SocietyNews site dedicated to health and health legislation. Often reposted at Natural News. 5
News The RegisterBiting the hand that feeds IT. Hilarious takes on IT news. Home of the BOFH. 5
News Press TVThe official Iranian press. Offers much more balanced and thoughtful news than any mainstream news organization. A definitely refreshing perspective. 5
News Black Listed NewsNews aggregation site dedicated to reporting on what goes underreported. Unrated
News RenseNews and conspiracy site. Some pretty wacky stuff included. The vast majority of news is solid and verifiable. An extremely ugly site. 3
News The Daily BellNews site dedicated to what is happening in the world. Not very good looking, but has excellent content. 4
Blog The Economic Collapse BlogA news blog dedicated to exposing issues that underly the impending economic collapse. 4
News Wide Awake NewsExcellent news site with video commentaries. 4
News Global ResearchFantastic site dedicated to news on globalism. Reports on news worldwide. Regularly exposes myths in common beliefs.5
9/11 Architects & Engineers for 9/11Not an "inside job" site. Scholarly articles and information on how it is impossible for 2 airplanes to destroy 3 buildings by causing low-heat fires, and how low-heat fires do not cause symmetrical building collapses. i.e. Shows that the official 9/11 story defies the laws of physics. Includes videos.5
9/11 Pilots for 9/11 TruthNot an "inside job" site. Information from experienced commerical and military pilots and aircraft engineers that explains how the official 9/11 story is impossible. Includes videos.5
Programming The Code ProjectAbsolutely one of the best sites available for programmers.5
Health Green Med InfoHealth site with a vast amount of information on mostly natural health solutions. 5
---- ------------
Blog Renegade's Blog cheesy My blog. smiley I like it because it's mine. tongue Rate for yourself. Wink

Cheers~! cheesy

Windows7 OS

http://www.sevenforums.com/

Forum for Windows7 related topics including subforums for networking, software, customization, hardware etc..  Also has a great Tutorials section.  Many of the topics have downloads with .reg files if the fix or adjustment requires a registry tweak. Tutorials are broken down into categories. Some examples: how to do a clean install when upgrading, clearing Explorer icon cache How to legally install Windows Seven from an iso image using no product key for an evaluation period etc.. As far as the legal issues go, there are many MS MVPs hanging on the forum. If a tutorial says it's legal to install Windows or extend the evaluation period in such and such a circumstance, and the tutorial has been up for any length of time, you can be sure it would have been taken down if there was anything dicey. Not a site that leads you into dubious territory. smiley

In short it's the only Windows7 specific site that I visit.

My main gripe about the site is the search tends to search everything even if you are already in the Tutorials section when you initiate the search. To limit the search to Tutorials you need to use Advanced Search and manually remove everything else from the list of forums to search. A minor quibble. But I wish they'd fix it. smiley

Hell if websites regarding 9/11 truth are acceptable... I can give you a massive list, as well as a link to a server from which you can download every single piece of video, audio, photographic and scanned document evidence (brilliantly useful resource).

He asked for favourites, so... Wink

But hell yeah! If you have a link like that, pass it on (and the list as well). I just stumbled across those ones.

I keep my URLs in LinkStash.  My Books folder has a sub-folder containing 51 FantasticFiction entries, so I'd rate that 5  smiley

Here's a couple new ones from today.

Commentary http://thegrumpyowl.com/  Some interesting takes on emerging modern issues.

The opinions are pleasantly different from some of the other mainstream slants.

Here's some subsidiary links based off Grumpy Owl posts:
http://www.theatlantic.co...man-relationships/256346/
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_drEFOaPaK8

And I like the snarky edge he puts on some of the issues, which helps counterweight some of the "polished-fake-neutral" spin that a lot of mainstream media likes to report in. (Sidebar: The Simpsons has done a few brilliant parodies of the Newscaster tone and style. Do y'all remember that special cadence most of a certain newscaster generation used? (capitalization special) we bring you LIVE to the UNDERGROUND music scene here in SOUTH WESTCHESTER, conneticut (I made that up) where ATROCIOUS things are happening RIGHT NOW under our NOSES!)

Not sure if this thread can survive if everyone just shared their favorite websites. Plenty of people here uses bookmark organizers (not me). It may be something that only the future version of tfdocs can present the full list in a readable manner without having to mass scroll or mass click through pages. Plus some are NSFW but not real NSFW or real porn. (example the Joe Rogan podcast below)

(Teacher's Unions? Not sure) http://www.city-journal.org/ - Like the Atlantic, I don't know the reputation of the website but it's one of the top websites I tend to get when googling for education and like the Atlantic, there's something that keeps me hooked to the site.

(General/Documentary?) http://fora.tv/ - It was between this and Ted when I first started out. As I'm not able to follow many videocasts/podcasts, I settled on Ted but slowly opted for this site because of the sheer content.

(Podcast/Soap Box?) http://www.joerogan.net/ - aka the Joe Rogan Experience. It's a mainstream podcast especially for mma fans but since I don't know every entertainment based podcast out there, I pretty much stick with this since it deals consistently with random shit that can go into politics and then go into some social thing like fleshlight (masturbation tool), environmentalism, weed. Basically if you want to experience weed without smoking weed or if you liked shows like the Man Show and can tolerate all the shouting and just want a podcast that on some random days you're bored and will click to because you're bored but curious but expecting to be bored but then go Holy **** what am I listening to?! It's a good consistent podcast. Even a sucky episode would contain into WTF things. Can't be categorized as WTF though because the entertainers treat the subjects in a semi-serious manner.

For a quick preview of what to expect, either check the latest podcast (the first sentence alone would blow most decent minded non-wild/liberally minded teen) or just imagine this stand-up is a sentence in a podcast:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwIuVyA4Lmg" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwIuVyA4Lmg</a>

I'm not so much into ratings. They're pretty but if it doesn't contain at least something like this:


...it's going to be too useless and full of 4-5 star (because who would want a 1 star site as their favorite site?) and even in terms of usefulness, it's more for entertainment. mouser should definitely add that table as a template though. Those dragonball stars are ****ing awesome and looks professional as hell for a bunch of images added on top of a table.

P.S.

I didn't realize DC had these smileys and I don't think I'll find a topic to use this again so to the posters

A couple that are interesting and different for reading and art.
My favorites, that others may not know of,
so a good place to post them I think.....

I'm friends with Todd Guess, an artist, and he is involved in the many parts of the other site's activities, as well as his own doings, which are similar in nature.

Recently saw in subjot:

England period props: http://www.lacquerchest.com/index.html

From the site:

A recent visitor to the shop exclaimed –
"Are there any more shops like this in the street?"

David Sedaris, a New York humorist, who happened to overhear the remark replied –
"There are'n't any more shops like this ANYWHERE ! where else can you find a collection of 36 hot water bottles!"


...and the only other film related site I know of:

Fantasy Weapons Shop: http://www.wetanz.com/weta-workshop-services/

...yeah I probably should have looked up Avatar sooner but I was never interested in that movie especially as I can't afford or have the know how to set up a screen with 3d.

I was in BlockBuster back in the day when I still rented VHS tapes. I saw the cover of this lousy Hong Kong Jackie Chan flick called Gorgeous

The movie was very annoying. But the actress was so hot I had to find more of her flicks. Anyway, for a time this was one of my favorite sites:

http://shuqi.org/

Unfortunately it looks like the site has not been updated since around 2010.  But there are still some pics on the site where the actress displays the merchandise.  If you are offended by seeing stunning women naked then I recommend not visiting the Multimedia page on the site.

More recent movie info for Shu Qi is on this site:
http://chinesemov.com/actors/Shu%20Qi.html

Reviews of her classic works can be found here:
http://www.lovehkfilm.com/people/shu_qi.htm

Just as an aside, I must imagine Shu Qi was criticized early in her career or in acting class for chewing the furniture during a dying scene.  If you watch The Return of Chen Zen you'll see what I mean.  She gets her revenge. smiley

Alas she seems to be in the big box office draw cash it in quick phase of her career. She can pretty much phone it in however she likes since she's still hot.  But I see the end of an era on the horizon.  If you are not into Hong Kong flicks I think the movies she made in the 90s still work.  She was hot, cute and you could see the acting potential. Mid to late 90's may be a good place to start.  Many of the DVDs were only letterboxed. But towards the end of the 90s they started to catch onto anamorphic 16x9. If you liked any of the Charly's Angels movies I recommend Martial Angels and So Close.  Wire fu only more fun, hotter babes, and done better than Drew Barrymore.

Yep. But don't judge too harshly. Her Hong Kong flicks(except maybe for a few of the "young and dangerous" series) were way better than Transporter.  If you don't mind seeing her boobs watch Viva Erotica. A very funny well made flick about an "arty director" forced to make a skin flick due to financial woes.

http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews/viva_erotica.htm
Another of her flicks I watched early on was City of Glass. Albeit a "chick flick" but that's where they tend to stick the hottest babes. Otherwise they kill them off early to cut down on payroll. I also liked Iron Sister.

Many of her Hong Kong flicks weren't distributed here. You can still find some at DDDHouse.com. If you don't have a "region free" player look on videohelp.com.  Many of the major players like Phillips allow you to set the region code to 0 using the remote if you know the sequence.  So far I've purchased 3 different model Phillips DVD players and I was able to set them all to 0 using the remote hack from videohelp.com's list.

I just watched an old film of her's last night. I don't think I ever watched it all the way through before. The title was For Bad Boys Only

Wow!! I didn't realize hot chicks had such bad luck.  She plays an Olympic runner who ends up in a wheel chair, a super hot hair dresser daughter of the Olympic runner who gets half her face burned off(but of course her boyfriend still loves her) and a genetic clone( well, she plays 11 of them.. the 10 rejects and the one that worked(#11) ).

Ekin Chen plays some detective who finds first loves of rich guys that regret not marrying them(can you really make a living doing that?)  Really strange stuff!! But that's the "charm" of old HK flicks. smiley
