At last Thursdays game, Frank mentioned some curiosity about my habits as far as daily sites I visit.

Well, here they are:

First I visit Metafilter, then Monkeyfilter, then Fark, then Plastic, then Boingboing, then Drudge (if I feel like subjecting myself to that.) Then Obscurestore. Oh yeah, an EM411. Can't forget that. Used to be djddx on there, but I'm now going by the name emergent, and hopefully that's the name I'll be releasing all my glitchy, drone ambient electronic music under.

Then I visit some webcomics. First is Schlockmercenary. Then I visit Superosity. Then Wigu. Then Achewood. Then Toothpastefordinner. Then Pvponline (even though Kurtz really ticks me off sometimes). Then Something Positive (which Mike turned me on to.) And of course, Bob.

Then I check in on some blogs, often infrequently. Usually less than daily. First is usr/bin/girl. Then Kottke. Then Stevenberlinjohnson, writer of Emergence (where I got the idea for the name 'emergent') and Mind Wide Open. Then the diary of Samuel Pepys, always illuminating. Then Accordion Guy. Then LinkMachineGo, which often has neat stuff about comic books, albeit from a mostly English perspective. Then Loriloo.

Then I check in with friends. First up, VendorX, then Kara. It always surprises me how few of my friends, otherwise much more technically and web saavy than I am, have blogs. Webjournals. Whatever. And a few of them are even writers of some sort (I'm looking at you two, Ken and Clint. *cough* *cough*)

Oh yeah, some more electronic music type links. I try to visit this circuit bending livejournal at least once a week. It's really only interesting if you're into circuit bending. Also of interest, if you are, is Cementimental's links.

Then I check on Coast To Coast Am, to see what's going to be on the radio tonight. Then CNN. Then of course, there's always the Kingdom of Loathing.

That's about it, I think.

Anyone else care to share their habits? Not the nasty ones.

Well, there's all the friends' weblogs, then all the political blogs (alicublog, xoverboard, counterspin central, daily howler, daily kos, drudge (because I'm a masochist), eschaton, factcheck (thanks for the tip, Cheney!), oliver willis, spinsanity, talking points memo, the internet party, washington monthly, and this modern world), then the daily show site, the mighty fark, salon, the smoking gun, snopes, engrish, gywo, and then my work day is pretty much shot.

Vendor X sez :

For my money, everyone should be reading slacktivist.typepad.org for some really excellent poltical opinion. I also get a kick out of diepunyhumans and therudepundit. For cartoons, you might add cat and girl, but you wouldn't have to, and I definitely include Penny Arcade, both the comic and Tycho's excellent writing. Memepool is a great place to go to find interesting things without having to deal with hours of idiot opinions and flames, rotten.com is the first source of news to shock or make really relevant. brotherjames.net is a friend's site worth noting, and finally, to bring it all home, the perfect and pure flash humor of homestarrunner.
