Being that I like to waste time at work :oops: I'm wondering what sites everyone visits for the latest news and gossip.

My Favorites are:

http://www.slashdot.org
http://www.oreillynet.com
http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/ - IBM DeveloperWorks
http://www.javaworld.com/
http://kt.zork.net/kernel-traffic/latest.html - Kernel Traffic

I'm sure there are others I should check out...

I was going to say http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com, too.

But for gossip I don't go anywhere...

I do go to a private message board that formed from a wedding website I used to frequent three years ago. :oops:

http://www.igl.net/monop/ Monopoly Ladder, which is sadly dying a slow death.

http://www.mscl.com/forum/index.php Like duh!

http://www.salon.com/ Probably the best, and last, site of it's kind -- an online literary magazine. I'm a subscriber.

http://www.flickfilosopher.com/ The best movie review site on the web. Her sarcastic humor is pretty close to mine.

http://www.theonion.com/ My number one source for news! I'd love to be a panelist on "What Do You Think?"

http://www.ucomics.com/calvinandhobbes/ When I'm feeling down, these guys pick me up.

http://www.nytimes.com/ The newspaper of record? I'm disappointed by the recent fake story scandal.

http://tampatrib.com/ What's going on in Tampa Bay?

http://www.thetigernet.com/ Get the scoop on Clemson Tiger sports.

http://www.efanguide.com/~clairedanes/ Really great Claire site. Always up to date!

http://www.markfiore.com/ Funniest political commentary on the Web. Very liberal, very anti-Bush. I like him anyway!

Wow, you guys are geeks.

Just kidding, like I'm so cool! My list is pretty lame. I always check my email, then a messageboard that a group of friends and I have, which I'm afraid is private. Then i come here.

Sometimes I hang around on ebay, check the onion, the spark (although it's gotten boring lately) or buy something on amazon. Also mommy sites like babycenter.com, parentsplace.com, birthstories.com, or breastfeeding.com. Yup, I'm pretty badass. Fear me.

Oh, and I like to google myself and my family. Our last name is Parker, so we're good for a google.

And nothingman, I have to tell yuo that I love the Counting Crows. I'm not a die-hard fan, but I was in love with Adam Duritz for a long while, and he did infulence my decision to name my son Adam. (No, I didn't name him after any of the other famous Adams - Sandler, Corolla, two of three Beastie Boys, etc!)

http://www.agonist.org/ for up to the minute news culled from everywhere. He got big during this last 'war', its the easiest place to go for good links to the important news stories of the day. And there's no bias I can see. They just tell us what happens...very little commentary, if any at all.

http://www.fbtb.net/ 'cause I'm a LEGO Star Wars freak. Buy your kids some damn LEGO sets! Its absolutely positively the BEST way to encourage creativity in a child. Worked for me!

http://www.metafilter.com/ great for the strange/interesting links for the day. Almost a news site, but much more a commentary site. Like Slashdot, but less Geek oriented.

http://www.aintitcoolnews.com/ Gotta have the crazy movie scoops.

http://www.darkhorizons.com/news.htm A little more professionally presented movie scoops.

http://www.bluesnews.com/
http://www.3dgamers.com/ Gotta get my PC demo/game news as well!

http://www.penny-arcade.com/ <-comic sucks most of the time, but the commentary is sometimes fun.

http://www.dieselsweeties.com/ <-best damn webcomic on the web. I went bowling with the guy on his b-day.

http://thedevilspanties.keenspace.com/ I knew the girl who draws this one. Its cool that she's become fairly known in the webcomic community. I also dated the leggy blonde character in the comic. Mmm mmm.
