Here is a list and descriptions of the websites that I visit on a daily basis:
Cracked.com "America's Only Humor & Video Site, Since 1958"
For years, Cracked magazine was the most successful Mad magazine clone on the market. Cracked magazine is no longer in print, and really, is Mad really going to be that far behind? Are there still people out there who find the Mad-style of humor funny? No, I didn't think so. Cracked decided to focus all of its efforts into its website, which is a million times more funny than the magazine ever was. Part of the reason that I like it might be because the writers are predominantly men who are close to my age and have similar interests that I do. Nerdish interests. They specialize in list-based articles (they also specialize in dick jokes). For example:
8 Customers Everyone Hates
7 Commandments All Video Games Should Obey
7 Classic Disney Movies That Taught Us Terrible Lessons
The 20 Most Ridiculous Batman Comics Ever Released
The 7 Dumbest Things Ever Done by Airport Security
There are also six full-time bloggers on staff. My favourite two of these bloggers are Daniel O'Brien and Michael Swaim. Michael Swaim is also the host of Cracked TV, an online series of short videos which is really just more list-based humor.
The Mo-Board "A place for Mo-Mos, Non-Mos, Ex-Mos, and even Anti-Mos to make friends and chat."
While the Mo-Board isn't the birth of hyperferrianism (that would be bolt.com), it is his current place of residence. One of the many, many message boards on bolt.com was the Mormonism/LDS board. As time went on, and bolt rapidly became a place that was unbearable to be (I'm not just being an ass; the place no longer exists), one regular frequenter of the Mormonism/LDS board saw fit to venture over to Proboards and create The Mormon Board, which eventually became the Mo-Board. There was a mass exodus of the regulars of bolt's Mormonism/LDS board to Andrew's new Mo-Board, a place free of the many, many, many ills of bolt.com. We're a very tight-knit group, and I consider most of them real friends, not the lesser breed of online acquaintances. Several of the members of the board have met in real life. Personally, the only two members of the board that I've met are the two that I knew in real life before the Mo-Board existed, but I plan to change that someday.
You all know how I feel about Facebook.
Mary's Attempt at a Blog
This is my younger sister's blog. She blogs and posts pictures of herself and her family.
The Emily Needs to Take More Pictures Blog
This is my youngest sister's blog, which she doesn't update nearly often enough.
Pat's Photo A Day "A scrapbooking grandmother's pictorial journey through life, one day at a time."
This is my mother's blog. She uses it to post pictures and talk about grandmotherly things. It is also the source of most of the family news that comes my way.
Mommy Moments "Tales of 3 great kids and their snap-happy Mom"
This is the blog of one of my older sisters. Like Mary, she uses it to blog and post pictures of herself and her family. She's also a professional photographer, so they're really nice pictures.
Edmonton Oilers - The Official Web Site
My favourite hockey team's official web site. It is a source of great joy, anger, and frustration. It's also a great resource for when I miss hockey games due to travel, Tree House, or Rock Band.
hyperblogianism "Jokes, social commentary, and other miscellaneous thoughts of my online persona, hyperferrianism"
I don't think a description for this one is necessary.
MiKenzie, Inc. "Established 1978. Mike MacKenzie, President; Avril MacKenzie, CEO; Kenneth MacKenzie, Jr. Vice President; Alexander MacKenzie, Not An Explorer"
My first blog. This is where I keep people updated on my family. MiKenzie, Inc. was coined by my former roommate, Zac Erickson, and is an amalgamation of "Mike" and "MacKenzie".
Jandrew Edits "a collection of humorously edited footage"
I was introduced to Jandrew Edits by cracked.com, which will often post links to sites that they enjoy. This guy takes existing footage (mostly from Star Trek: The Next Generation and, more recently, Back to the Future) and cleverly edits them for short, funny clips. My favourite one is called "Bridge Buffoonery"
Memories of the '90s "I'm either one of the youngest Gen X-ers or one of the oldest Gen Y-ers, depending on which text book you look in. I turned 12 in March of 1990, and these are my memories of being a teenager in the last decade of the 20th Century."
My third blog.
This is my wife's substitute for a blog. It's her Shutterfly page, where she posts pictures of her family life. It also has a journal feature, which she uses as a blog.
The blog of another one of my older sisters. Like Mary and Sara, she uses it to blog and post pictures of herself and her family.
White Ninja Comics
Another site that Cracked.com introduced me to. It's a comic strip that updates three times a week chronicling the adventures of White Ninja, a man with an unclear history whose age changes from strip to strip. Sometimes he has a wife and kids. Sometimes his kids are teenagers, and sometimes they're little. Sometimes he's a child. He's even a baby in one strip. It's hard to put a finger on why it's such a funny comic strip, but I absolutely love it. I'll post some of my favourite strips here.
