For whatever reason, we don't seem to have a topic just to blather on about websites we like. (If we do, someone bump it up and embarrass me, please.)

Anyway, found this just now, and can't believe I never saw it before:

Big Bad Chinese Mama

It's so great.

It's hardly ever updated (like, once a year, tops). but Blair still makes me laugh so much I can't speak. It was the first ever e-zine I ever read (in 1996, yikes), and it's just...genius.

oh my, Deborah. I just went to visit Big Bad Chinese Mama
-- that's one heck of a site. The best part is that they are pretending to be a porn site.

I still love The Brunching Shuttlecocks even if I don't visit every day.

Amen to Brunching and Blair. May I suggest Chickenhead ? I especially love the fake banner ads. And the Meat wallpaper.

And, thanks to the News Radio freaks over at TWop, edited to add this . It's not so much a site as just a really cool thing. "If you don't know concentration, which gives you peculiar pleasure, your life looks like hell." So, so true.

Big Bad Chinese Mama is excellent, thanks deborah! the Onion is always excellent, Bush sending troops to the West Nile... heh.

I love the reviews at holecity.com , generally very snarky and very fun, and their story on the Russian mob/ figure skating scandal made me laugh out loud - "What kind of sissified mob is this?"

And BettyBowers.com has some damn funny satire too in a very "holier than thou" kind of way.

Well, as a television whore, I spend most of my time here Our lovely deborah is too modest to say anything, but she's doing a fabulous job moderating and recapping .

Yes, she does. I just ran across her interview with Vern through this last recap, and I am a jealous, jealous woman. If M. Giant wasn't such a hottie, I might be tempted.

And as I am sure you are all aware, we should be going to TWoP whenever possible, and then some more, and clicking on all of the ads.

Also, I live to spend time at E-Mode . I don't usually like personality tests, but these can be kind of fun.

Besides the usual DHAK suspects (Tomato Nation, TWoP, Hissyfit, Fametracker), I've been wasting lots of time lately at Art of the Mix , which is a wonderfully addictive site for mix tapers.
