    Cool Cool Websites We Have Found...

    So I figure there's lots of cool websites that we all know about that we wouldn't normally think to find (plus I'm bored) So I figured I'd start a thread to list cool sites.

    Here's my list:

    http://www.fark.com/ (a weird-news site with a sense of humor)

    http://www.retrojunk.com (cartoon theme songs & other stuff)

    http://www.myheritage.com/FP/Company...1&u=g0&lang=EN (face-recognition software demo...upload your pic)

    http://www.the-breaks.com/ (find what artists used what samples in their music...searchable)

    http://www.playahata.com/ (hip-hop news from a concious perspective)

    http://www.daveyd.com (same sort of idea)

    http://www.builtstlouis.net/eaststlouis/eaststl02.html (photo essay on East St. Louis...SCARY place after dark...)

    http://digitalgallery.nypl.org/nypldigital/ (NY Public Library image database)

    http://www.lulu.com/content/63504 (urban survival guide...a must for those of you who didn't get camping passes or motels)

    http://www.logotypes.ru/default_e.asp (vector-based logos from companies around the world...great for designers)

    OK...so there's my list...please share yours...

    Nah...but the download is only like $5. I thought about buying copies and giving them out to homeless people, but I never got around to it.

    On another note though, I've been checking out the Retrojunk page and having a great time...the commercials of the 80s is the best...especially the Public Service Announcements. They have all the classics.

    Here is a dating site for Archie Bunker and other right wingers. http://www.conservativematch.com AND http://www.conservativematchmaker.com (not the same). Of course we do not need more right wing nuts being produced due to their parents meeting on these "lovely" sites.

    Free fonts. More importantly, awesome layout and easy to use.

    http://www.stockvault.net/

    Free (relatively high-res) stock photos. Again, great layout and easy to use.


    And I'm not even an artist of any sort.

    Some of my favorites. Descriptions taken from the sites when possible.

    http://www.onesentence.org
    (This is about telling the most interesting or poignant story possible in the least amount of words.)

    www.thislife.org (There's a theme to each episode, and a variety of stories on that theme. It's mostly true stories of everyday people, though not always.)
    **This show is what prompted me to start doing field recordings and interviews.

    http://www.songmeanings.net/ (a great site for both lyrics, but also some interesting comments on the meaning behind the lyrics)

    http://www.picturesofwalls.com/ (random submissions of writing on walls)

    www.etsy.com (a place for artists and craftsters to sell their stuff - similiar to ebay w/o the auction format)

    http://creativecommons.org/audio/freesound (Freesound is a repository of CC-licensed samples around 20,000 samples also has a geotag feature (ie. children laughing could be on a street in china)
