    What a great site.

    Note to rml - deviant art is bad! Their user agreement states in no vague terms that the service exists so as to provide their business partners with an income of freely available, royalty free art work. You, the user, must be okay with this before posting something you've done. The pieces are still yours, but you agree that they may be used by other parties for purposes of promotions and advertisement, and you agree furthermore that you are entitled to no payment for the use of your work. When you take a piece down, the agreement terminates, but only on your side. Deviantarts business partners may take as long as they'd like to cease the use of your work.

    Facebook is a frequent haunt of mine when bored. Along with the usual social networking sites:

    www.myspace.com

    Bebo

    I also look at webcomics:

    Ctrl+Alt+Del
    Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal
    Something Like Life... Updated: Mondays
    Explosm.net - Comics
    Perry Bible Fellowship

    Other than that, it's just here, writerslibrary :: Home , and occasionally rULeR Of thE UniverSe. .

    EDIT: Oh, and FictionPress.Com :

    OH.
    And I'm also a big fan of http://www.somethingawful.com

    About the only web comic that I can stomach is Leisure Town. Everything else makes me roll my eyes.

    I like these ones

    Tropes - Television Tropes & Idioms - tv, movie, comics, and some literature cliches and tropes. Lots of useful and funny info.

    Sluggy Freelance - A web comic that has been updated almost everyday since 1997 I believe. The story arcs range from mindless horrible jokes, to first rate suspense and tragedy. (And the bunny has appeared in at least two sci-fi series by John Ringo)

    RPGnet : Roleplaying Games & More - One of the largest role playing forums on the net. Useful if you're into role playing, but it also has lots of threads that deal with world building, plots, humour, magic, science, weird situations, and general interests.

    trig.com - Revolution can be simple!

    I also go to the site Tropes Dom posted a link to every now and then. RPGnet is also another that I freequent for the writing side of things that is.

    I was going to a forum that just closed its doors called WritersParadox. <it got totally removed :(>


    Fantasy Worldbuilding Questions Part 1

    another kewl place I go to is Evil Raw. It is a forum for those who write dark and gothic literature and even erotic. The works I have read there are not for the faint of heart and are absolutely amazing. I spend a lot of time just reading through the work on that forum when i have nothing else to do now.

    Basically all the sites I visit are forums of some kind. I don't really get into the whole yotube and so forth. I find it just distracts me from my writing.
