Most of us probably have at least a few stops we make on the internet every day (or couple of days).
So, besides SSG, what other sites do you visit on a regular basis?
This could be a cool way for us to discover new, cool sites we wouldn't normally come across.

On a regular (or semi-regular) basis, I hit:
belowempty.com - a Stone Temple Pilots fansite that puts their official site to shame. I'm usually in the forum there.
velvet-revolver.com - Run by the same guy as belowempty. Another great fansite.
theforce.net - Yeah, you probably know this one.
newsaskew.com - Kind of like theforce.net for Kevin Smith fans.
thepunisher.com - Punisher fansite (duh). Surprising amount of news on the character.
comingsoon.net - Lots of movie news.
comicscontinuum.com - Comic book news.
natalieportman.com - Fansite that tends to be a bit obsessive, but lots of content.
ashleywoodartist.com - awesome comic artist I recently discovered. He (yes, he's a guy) is known for Popbot and he's doing Lore right now. I'm blown away by his style/work.
joshcomics.com - It's a friend's site. He's publishes his own indie comic. He was nominated for best self-publishing comic artist and been a guest at various cons (including San Diego). He has a very odd sense of humor.
homestarrunner.com - If you don't know this site, you suck. :)
theonion.com - Great popular parody newssite.
yahoo.com - for news mainly.

Homestarrunner.com - The new email is great
Yahoo!.com - For my mail
Theforce.net - Just for the heck of it
Starwars.com - For the past week several times a day just to watch the trailer. No seriously.
Funnyjunk.com - They have some pretty funny stuff. (Check out the insanity test in the video section)

I like list topics!

The following are for DVD news:

www.davisdvd.com
www.thedigitalbits.com
www.dvdanswers.com
www.tvshowsondvd.com
dvd.ign.com

I look at those everyday, except weekends. They don't usually update then, which leaves two days of DVD sadness in my heart. :cry:

For my music needs:

www.intersandman.com
www.4horsemen.4t.com
www.encycmet.com
www.roadrun.com/blabbermouth.net

For my horror fix:

www.fangoria.com
www.dreadcentral.com
www.bloody-disgusting.com

For news/misc. of all kinds:

www.yahoo.com
www.msn.com
www.snopes.com
www.ign.com

May some divine spirit bless the favorites folder.

My normal internet routine is:
SSG I always come here first, sometimes when I don't mean to.
ZDNet Tech news and commentary. Second stop on weekdays.
eBay I use look for mostly vintage SW toys. But now that I have most everything I want, I'm looking more for old Lego sets these days.
LUGNET A big Lego user group. I lurk here. See what folks have to say about non SW Legos.
BrickShelf An online Lego gallery where people can post their Lego creations.
Classic-Castle.com Yet another Lego site. This one is for Lego Castle. If you ever liked Lego Castle this site's for you.
RebelScum I lurk this one as well, but only the vintage forums.
Netscape News and spam e-mail account.

I look at SSG and Rebelscum daily, unless I'm away from home.

Two or three times a week I look at The Baseball Page and Baseball Library.

SSG
StarWars.com
Rebelscum.com
TF.N
MSN.com where I read news and Doonesbury, Foxtrot, Non Sequiter, and The Boondocks
MSN Encarta.com to read "On this day...". It is a link from MSN
Comics.com where I read Dilbert, For Better or For Worse, and Get Fuzzy.

I visit 2 other sites every day, but I could get banned if I spoke their name aloud - eek! :nerv: :eek: :cry: :( :speech: :beard:
