Sites that I likes

I've been traveling around this International Network of Engineered Transmissions (what you might call the "InterN.E.T") for a while now. I think that most of you agree with me when I say that the super fun websites are what keep me coming back!

Efilmcritic.com -- They've got a lot of reviewers reviewing a lot of movies here, one of whom, I might add, is a friend of mine from way back. Peter Sobczynski reviews for a real live newspaper somewhere and he's a great reviewer when he's not too busy declaring his lust for Audrey Tautou or Angelina Jolie.

Movie Poop Shoot -- They have a little bit of everything here and I just discovered (or rediscovered) it recently. They seem to have some sort of blood tie with Kevin Smith, which I suppose ain't that bad.

Something Awful -- Go here to read columns making fun of furries, Star Wars, Everquest, Nazi Superweapons, dumb websites, neckbeards and whatever else they want to poke at. I became addicted when I saw a photoshopped picture of Snake Eyes and Cobra Commander on the capital steps shaking hands.

Savage Love -- I thought that he had a website, I am not sure if it is still out there though. Generally I read it on The Onion's site. Dan is an openly gay advice columnist who is often very funny. He had one column several years ago where every piece of advice he gave was somehow related to Starship Troopers. It is still one of the funniest articles that I have ever read. A word of warning to you Junior Intergalactic Gladiators, this is a sex advice column and his answers are frank and do contain adult language.

The Internet Movie Database -- The answers to every friendly bar debate are located here.

Virtual Bartender -- I haven't been here in a while, but I returned recently and now they have a new one with two virtual bartenders! Type commands to see what they will do! Once again, I cannot recommend this to the Junior Intergalactic Gladiators out there.

Telescope Game -- This is an interesting puzzle where you use telescopes to put a ball into the hole.

The Zoom Quilt -- This zooms through a continuous loop of an alien landscape (well, alien to some of you, I guess). This is an incredible art project and it needs to be seen to be appreciated.

Finally The Ether Killer -- Kids do not try this at home.

There are others, of course. There are lots of other interesting sites out there. Your assignment today, Junior Intergalactic Gladiators, is to tell me what website you like visiting. Let's keep it reasonably clean, folks.

I can't believe the imdb made the message boards hidden to everyone but members. I used to be able to read that. But it's awesome, cuz it's got movies you can't find anywhere else.

I found the Zoom Quilt quite refreshing.

They are good ones that I'll look into soon.

About the telescope game:

It was originally written by the Dyson vacuum company, and there are many more levels.

Levels 1-15 (These, you've seen)
Levels 16-25
Grandmaster levels 1-10

Just for you, some hidden links:
Block levels 1-10
Transporter levels 1-10

I have a *LOT* of time between ports...
