My Favorite Web Sites – Part 2

See part 1 here

I spend a lot of time on the web. Most of it is business related, but I do take time away to play. Here are some more of my favorite sites:

Site:

Stuff White People Like

Synopsis:

WhitePeople.jpg

This site has gained a TON of momentum over the past several weeks, and rightfully so; it’s hilarious! Very insightful, yet ultimately self deprecating, Stuff White People Like is a blog that chronicles the nuances that go into the decision making process of the average white (and I would assume affluent, 25-45 year olds) person. Hilarity generally ensues. The writing isn’t particularly laugh out loud funny, but if you can have a sense of humor about yourself, it becomes hilarious as you begin to see bits and pieces of yourself in the writing.

Signature Post:

Most posts can be given signature status, but two recent posts really made me laugh out loud. The first is the post about the Wire, which is a great television show. This article easily could have been written about me. The second is about hating corporations. Since I’m not the biggest fan of corporations, this one fits me as well (although often for different reasons than outlined in the article).


Site:

Jake and Amir Dot Com

Synopsis:

JakeAmir.jpgOne of the stupidest sites on the web, but I absolutely love it. Jake and Amir are two guys who work for College Humor. Every few days they post a video that’s about 1-3 minutes long, and it details Amir’s unhealthy man-crush on Jake. The videos are all a little odd, and make me laugh about 90% of the time. Not everyone will think this site is funny, but if you like the one I’m posting, chances are you’ll like them all.

Signature Post:

There are lots of funny posts, but I’ll give a few for you. The first is a recent one where they pick their March Madness Brackets. Another is Jake’s Computer. (warning, there is a bit of swearing, so make sure to use headphones if at work).


Site:

TK On Toast

Synopsis:

Signature Post:

Other than my guest post from the NFL Playoffs (boy was I wrong about the Giants), I would have to say my favorite post is their road trip diary about their trip to Marquette as part of the DTFTC. If you like guy humor and stories of drinking, this one is an epic.


Site:

Photoblog 2.0

Synopsis:

I found this site when I started to become interested in Digital Photography, and have been a subscriber ever since. Harold Davis (the owner of this blog) takes some awesome photos and even tells you how he achieved such great shots! He’s a very personable guy and actually wrote me a personal email after I left a comment on his site. He even went to my site and read my posts! Pretty cool guy if you ask me.

Signature Post:

I mentioned earlier that I commented on one of his blog posts, which showed a beautiful picture of a Gerbera Daisy. This was the favorite flower of my girlfriend at the time, so I wrote to Harold to see if I could get a print.


Site:

The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks

Synopsis:

crabs.jpgThis site constantly posts pictures of signs and other unnecessary public displays of quotation marks. Good for a few laughs if you are a fan of grammar.

Signature Post:

Nothing really blows you away, since all of the quotes are funny in their own way…. but I got a kick out of this one: “crabs”.
