News__ SURFING (the net) ALL SUMMER
Tired of jadedly scanning the 'Do's and Dont's' section in Vice? Try these remarkable works of wonder on for size.
1. Jonathan Brandis Fan Page (http://www.jonathanbrandis.org/)
Maybe Brad Renfro has a fan page stashed somewhere in the dark wormholes of the internet, and there is sure to be a site dedicated to the death of Rider Strong's career, but no web homage shines as bright as Jonathan Brandis'. Complete with drawings of the talented actor that starred in such gems as Seaquest and Ladybugs, the website is truly, like Jon, unforgettable.
2. Fuck You Penguin (http://www.fupenguin.com/)
This is a pretty famous blog. So famous in fact, that the creator got a book deal out of his genius idea of telling off pictures of cute animals.
3. Texts from Last Night (http://www.textsfromlastnight.com/)
When you've had too much to drink, try to discern (through your clouded mind) who you are about to send that weird/creepy/hot text message to, or else it may end up on this website. From posts like,'the liability waiver did not state that i couldn't bring my bottle of wine in the bouncy castle. it did Not,' to 'She was walking with the authority that 2 beers gave to a light weight,' the site is a dark cave of entertainment that also serves as cautionary education, kind of like the D.A.R.E program.
4. Best of Craigslist (http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/all)
People use Craigslist to fill the void in their lives with whatever they think will do the trick. Be it men seeking women, women seeking women, seeking missed connections, seeking rooms for rent, seeking sublets, seeking roommates who need desks, drugs, straightedge companionship, free rides, used surfboards, used Ipods, extra tickets, you name it. Thank goodness someone thought to put all the posts that stand out the most in one little tidy website for everyone to enjoy. This one is pretty good.
5. I Bang the Worst Dudes (http://sorry-mom.com/)
A site that makes most men's faces crumple with fear, I Bang the Worst Dudes, invites females to submit a guy they've had a romantic encounter with (one-night-stand or otherwise) along with a photo of the guy and why other girls should stay away from him. It's raw. If the girl confessing shows some mercy and decides not to send a picture of the guy, an image of a, ahem, feminine hygiene product is used in its place. The stories are like gateway drugs; you read a good one, then sift through hundreds of mediocre rants to find another bazaar diamond in the rough. Remember, they're shocking because they're true.
