My Top 10 Favorite Websites – 2009 Version

August 28, 2009

Everyone has their favorite websites. I posted a similar list a good while back, so I figured I’d post an updated list. While some simply haven’t changed (mirtle’s site for example), there are several new sites that I’ve discovered.

Hopefully there a few here that you can add to your list of websites to check out regularily.

1. From The Rink
Years later, mirtle’s blog is still my favorite site on the ‘net. Quite simply, no other hockey blog compares. It’s the first site I point my browser to every morning.

2. Nucks Misconduct
The best Canucks blog out there. The writers are informative, funny and know what they’re talking about (most of the time haha). If you’re a Canucks fan, the site is a must-read.

3. Crackberry
If you’re obsessed with you’re Blackberry like I am, then this site is perfect for you. Constant updates, a great app store, forum and blogs. The only Blackberry website you’ll ever need to visit.

4. Twitter
Twitter. Everyone knows what it is. I honestly could care less what color of shirt you’re wearing today, but for getting quick, up-to-date info on your favorite topics, well, nothing beats Twitter.

5. Perez Hilton
I’m almost ashamed to put this on the list, but unfortunately, it’s true. As far as getting your entertainment news, its a pretty good start, and always good for a laugh.

6. Kukla’s Korner
I’d say it’s more of a news feed than a blog, but either way, no one does it better than Paul Kukla and staff at covering every aspect of the hockey news world.

7. Puck Daddy
For you non-hockey fans, I apologize. As you can see, my daily reading mostly revolves around hockey blogs. And Puck Daddy is one of the best ones out here. It’s hilarious, and also manages to cover stories that no one else manages to find.

8. Fark.com
Do you find ridiculous, yet true, news stories to be funny? Then this site is for you. It basically proves how idiotic we are as a human race.

9. Zip
The DVD-by-mail website that I subscribe to. If you like paying half price for DVD rentals, and you watch a lot of movies, then subscribing to Zip is probably worth your while.

10. TV Shows On DVD
I’m an avid TV on DVD watcher. I can’t habdle commercials, or waiting a week for each episode. This website gives you all the info you’ll need regarding TVDVD news and release dates.

What are some of your favorite websites? I’m always looking for new sites to kill time.

A while back, I jumped on the Twitter bandwagon. So until I start getting on the updates, feel free to follow me at twitter.com/mattgunn18


Attempting a comeback

August 27, 2009

I know it’s been a long, long time since my last update, and for that, I apologize.

A change of jobs made it very hard to keep updating the site, but now thanks to the wonderful advances with Blackberries (as well as me slowly beginning to cope all it’s possibilities), it looks like I will able to start up the site again.

Seeing as most posts will be coming from my phone, I can’t promise the best spelling or a perfect layout, but I’ll do my best.

Hoping this time my return works out.

Great Movie Quotes: Juno

February 22, 2008

Juno MacGuff: You should’ve gone to China, you know, ’cause I hear they give away babies like free iPods. You know, they pretty much just put them in those t-shirt guns and shoot them out at sporting events.

Review: Saw III

January 16, 2008

saw3-poster2.jpgI know it’s been a while since I’ve updated the site, and/or put up a movie review. I keep saying I’ll return to posting more often, but I’m really not sure when that will be.

I finally got around to watching the third installment of the “Saw” film series, aptly titled Saw III. The original Saw is one of my all-time favorite “Thriller/Horror” films, and although I enjoyed the second one, I didn’t think it was nearly as good as the first (but when is this ever not the case with sequels? Only ones I can think of are X-Men and Spiderman at the moment).

I hadn’t heard a lot of great things about Saw III, so I was very pleasantly surprised once I finished it. The film, although a little overly “gross” at times, was much better than I expected. It had a good storyline, good suspense, and I really enjoyed how it linked up and answered a lot of questions from the first film. It almost seems like the Saw films are an extended series, rather than individual installments.

I don’t imagine you would like Saw III if you haven’t seen Saw or Saw II. It would be akin to missing the first two seasons of a TV show then jumping in on the third. This is something you don’t often see with films. They are usually made so that, although it references the previous films, the casual viewer can jump in and the film will still make sense. Saw III would make absolutely no sense to someone who hasn’t seen the original.

I wouldn’t put Saw III up there with the original, but it’s definitely better than the second film, and definitely a film worth seeing. The Saw films are pumped out so quickly, it gives you the impression that there isn’t a lot of thought put into them, and they are done as a cash cow only. As much as they are done for the easy cash, they are also well put together and are entertaining films.

I am looking forward to seeing Saw IV, which is released this Tuesday, January 22nd.

My Rating: 7.5/10
