Great Geek Webpages

I’m a geek, he’s a geek, she’s a geek, yeah we’re all geeks.

…ok, now that I have gotten that reference out of the way, I can begin my post.  As geeks we love the internet (or “teh interwebs” for those of you who are “hip with the lingo”)  So I thought I would write a little post showing off some of my favorite web pages that you may not know about.  I am not going to include sites like IGN because…well, everyone knows about IGN.  These are the sites that most people have never heard of (like mine!)  I hope they kill as much of your spare time as they have mine.

General Geekyness


Geekosystem – Ok, this is my new favorite website.  This place has a little bit of everything, and chances are if you can’t find it on geekosystem, you can find a link to it on geekosystem.  It gets updated several times a day, so there is always plenty to read, and about 90% is worth your time.  If you only visit one site from this list, it should be this one.  Geekosystem, I salute you!

PokemonEpisode.org – If you like pokemans, then you will love this site. Basically, they have manages to archive every episode of the anime.  Need I say more?  To see Ash catch them all, just tune into pokemonepisode.org

Paintings

Ok, these are not sites, so much as they are pictures.  I got both of them from geekosystem and they are both by the same guy.

Sir Ian – Ian Mckellen in his magneto suit with baby chicks.  Yeah, this one is my wallpaper

Lazy Sunday Afternoon – Christopher Walken building a robot, what’s not to like?

Web Comics

This is the longest section of the post.  Ironically, I don’t actually follow any of these comics regularly.  I read several comics, then leave the series alone for a few months (or up to a year) then randomly come back and pick up where I left off.  But when I do feel like reading a webcomic, these are the sites I go to!  They are all hilarious, and I think you will like them.

Awkward Zombie – I recently discovered this site, and it is really funny.  Expect a lot of Nintendo humor (especially Smash Bros. references)

Funny Farm – Again, another very funny site.  I got into this a long time ago and only re-discovered it a few months back.  It is about a bunch of animals living together in a boarding house.  Granted, it sounds like a rejected newspaper funny idea, but he actually makes the idea work.  There are a few story arcs in this comic, so it is best to start from the beginning, but  it is not absolutely necessary.

Sonic and Pals – Ok, Ok, I know what your thinking..a sprite comic…about Sonic Characters…it does sound lame. But the guy has been doing a comic a day for the past 6 years.  The site’s fourms have a crazy dedicated fanbase.  And it has done quite well, and with good reason.  This is a very well written comic.  There is plenty of humor and running gags.  All in all, this is probably my favorite on the list.  Warning though, it does contain a lot of different story arcs and you have to start from the beginning, which is a shame because the first few months worth of comics are not that great…but once it gets going, it really gets interesting.

Garfield Minus Garfield –  Ok, this is the funnies comic on this list.  Heck, this is the funniest link on this list.  Garfield Minus Garfield is exactly what the name implies.  They take a garfield comic from the paper, and photoshop Garfield out of the picture, leaving John alone and talking to himself.  This comic is hilarious in such a surreal way, as John starts yelling at a cup of coffee for no reason or talks about how great it is to have a friend and then bursts into tears.  You will not find a funnier webcomic anywhere else.  Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield, even loves it.  And so should you!

Blogs, Blogs, and more Blogs!

These final four are all blogs that I already link too.  I thought I would mention them here though because I can’t stress how fun they are to read.

Crossroads – This site is run by my best friend.  It is much like my site in that it covers a little of everything (including the occasional short stories)  It is always fun, always funny, and always awesome.

Earl’s Blog: Part III – Also run by one of my best friends, Earls blog tends to concentrate on films.  He does the other stuff too, but cinema is really his expertise.  His reviews are always entertaining.  We have very, very, very different tastes in movies, but I still find the reviews very helpful and often check with him before watching something new.

KigreX32’s Site – The tagline reads “Unbiased Wii and DS reviews by a Wii and DS owner.” and that pretty much sums up the site.  His reviews are good and fun to read.

Cut the Crap Video Game Reviews – You may have heard of its sister site, Cut the Crap Movie Reviews, it has won a few awards.  Personally, I had never heard of it but it is supposed to be great.  Cut the Crap Game reviews prides itself in being “for people who don’t read video game reviews”it is a fun format and that is a blast to read.  It looks as though this site is just starting out (actually, it started 1 month ago today)  It really looks like it has potential.  They don’t just do new games, but they do plenty of retro reviews and flash game reviews.  Not to mention they have cool polls to vote in.
