This is the section where links to other
displayed. Once your heart has stopped racing from the shock
of learning that startling revelation, feel free to scroll
down and explore the list of digital destinations I've
compiled for your viewing pleasure. Oh, and
if you want your own site listed here, then be prepared to make
it worth my while. I accept bribes in the form of cash or
coupons for free desserts at Dairy Queen.
Unfortunately, the ever-changing nature of the internet
means that any of the following links are liable to go
down faster than a cocktail waitress at some sleazy movie
producer's mention of casting a one-line part in the next
Adam Sandler flick. If you come across a dead link anywhere
on this page,
please take a moment to
let me know
and I'll attempt to repair the connection if at all
possible. And if that fails, I'll sever the link like
so many heads in a duffle bag and send pictures of the
gruesome carnage to the site's irresponsible asshole of a webmaster.
The fact that you're viewing this site of your own free will
suggests that you're either killing
time until those illegal Russian fetish porn downloads are finished, or you're
at least a casual fan of anime. For those of you who fall into
the latter category, here are a few links to some nifty
anime-related websites you may enjoy:
A rising star in the online anime resource scene, Anime 3K is home to a variety of podcasts and
video series covering all aspects of anime, manga, Japanese
culture, and all that other stuff you geeks are probably into.
While you're browsing the site's lineup of exclusive multimedia offerings,
make sure you check out The Other Side—a scathing, adults-only
podcast series hosted by yours truly and long-time PA
contributor Cody Baier.
Are you tired of getting left out of conversations about the
most recent anime news stories? ...No? Oh. Well, now you can
stay up-to-date on all the latest happenings in the anime world
with Anime News Network! It has info on what's coming out next,
who's licensing what properties, which celebrity anime couples
are getting divorced, who's in rehab, that sort of thing.
Anime on TV
If you're in the mood to watch anime but can't afford to buy it
and are too lazy to pirate it, watching the handful of series
aired on television is pretty much your only remaining option.
Thankfully, this site provides a news feed and schedule listings to
make sure that you never miss an episode of your favorite anime
as it's butchered by network censors deathly afraid of
angry letter-writing mothers who want to make sure that
their offspring aren't encouraged to actually use what they learned in
that karate class they were forcibly enrolled in because they
got too old for daycare.
Despite having a server that goes up and down more than a PCP
addict on a pogo stick and many of the site's informational
pages being terribly outdated, Arlong Park remains a choice
online destination for One Piece devotees thanks to its large
community of fans who exhibit a genuine love for Eiichiro Oda's
epic manga. It's actually pretty adorable in a
dysfunctional sort of way.
As Bleach continues to grow in popularity, the number of fansites devoted to the
series seems to shoot up on a weekly basis. My personal
favorite of the bunch remains Bleach Exile, thanks to its sleek design,
frequent updates, and impressive database of information. And if
you're looking for manga and multimedia downloads, this site has you
covered. Rock on.
Part fetish documentation archive, part parody site, and an
all-around class act, Ecchi Attack is a site dedicated to
exploring the most bizarre perversions to come out of Japan, as
well as the rest of the world (but mostly Japan). If you have a
strong enough stomach and are the type of person who can find
the humor in outrageously depraved cartoon pornography, this
site is a must-read.
Mecha & Anime HQ
Like giant robots? The guys behind this site
dedicated to everything mecha to come out of Japan sure as hell
futuristic anime and manga series to models to editorials to
convention reports to mecha spec sheets featuring so many
details it rides that fine line between awesome and pathetic,
this site has got you covered when it comes to anything
robotic in anime.
If you're a fan of Rumiko Takahashi's works, then this
comprehensive collection of fansites for her various series is
definitely worth a look. You can also visit the message boards
and chat with the last of the diehard Inuyasha fans who somehow
still give a shit, then spend days arguing over which fiancée Ranma
SHOULD have ended up with. Or you could eat
thumbtacks and then give yourself a vinegar enema. Just throwin' out
some suggestions here.
Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series
Attention duelists! The anime parody sensation that swept
YouTube (and was promptly deleted thanks to some bullshit copyright law) now has its own
website, complete with every single episode hosted locally for
your convenience. If you're already familiar with these
hilarious fandubs, then you don't need me to sell 'em to you;
otherwise, visit the site and find out what you've been missing.
Here are a handful of links to sites that are either personal
favorites of mine or happen to be popular enough that peer
pressure has forced me to list them because I want people to
think I'm as trendy and hip as they think think they are:
The Amy Rose Show
Internet humorist superstar Muzzy Roberto is back on the scene
with another heaping helping of hilarity in the form of this
serial sprite comic about Amy Rose and her drunken exploits to
get into Sonic's pants, most of which end
with somebody getting killed (usually Amy). An instant classic.
The Castlevania Dungeon
If you're one of the legions of fans who believe Castlevania
is one of the best game franchises of all time, then you should
definitely bookmark this bitchin' fansite. It offers
screenshots, codes, walkthroughs, and reviews for every game in the
series to date, along with a plethora of info about the
real-world mythology that inspired the games' most memorable
creatures and locations.
Once you've gotten your fill of scathing, irreverent
fanfiction criticism from PA, head on over to CF for some
equally scathing, irreverent literature criticism. Turns out
that straight 'D' high school students ripping off their favorite
cartoon shows aren't the only people who can fail spectacularly at
writing—some of the published authors out there are to blame for
introducing the public to works that reek every bit as badly as
the crap that gets pushed out straight onto the internet.
Creative writing is the art of the damned, it seems.
If it's info on fighting games you want, this is the place to
go. 2D, 3D, console, arcade, handheld... If it has
fighting it in, this site probably has it covered. You'll also
enjoy webmaster Frankie's hilariously overzealous obsession with
fighting games, which is due in part to his monstrously huge ego born of
his philosophy that being really good at Tekken makes you better
than regular people, like a superhero or something. Except,
instead of battling super villains and rescuing damsels
in distress, he trash talks kids half his age at the arcade and
spends his Saturday nights
jerking off to erotic Chun-Li fanart.
The Filthy Critic
Movie nerds reading this site will probably spend equal
amounts of time standing up on their chairs and cheering this
man on with all their hearts for his unabashed lambasting of the
latest cinematic disaster that Hollywood has shit out into our
theaters, and snapping their keyboards in half during fits of
rage after seeing him mercilessly trash their favorite cult
classic. On the other hand, if you're like me and don't take
movies all that seriously, then it's a safe bet you'll get a
kick out of these
riotous reviews that don't hold anything back.
Hardcore Gaming 101
This site isn't about hardcore gaming in the sense that the
games it reviews are really hardcore or anything, they're just
really old and/or obscure. Yeah, it doesn't make a lot of sense to me
either. Still, this site is great for taking both the hits and
the wrongfully overlooked games of yesterday and bringing them
into the limelight for a whole new generation of gamers. Long
live the classics.
An exceedingly cynical website that specializes in the mockery
of just about every facet of pop culture you could imagine
(especially old video games for some reason I'm not entirely
sure of). They do not,
however, have any features devoted to mocking bad fanfiction, which
is why you still need my site. AND DON'T YOU EVER FORGET
IT YOU WHOOOOOoooores.
KC Green Dot Com
KC Green has drawn so many damn webcomics it's ridiculous.
Even more ridiculous is that most of them are... actually good!?
Holy crap! From this humble hub site you can find all of Mr.
Green's innumerable masterpieces, including Gunshow,
Horribleville, Custom Comix, and many more, each one packed with
that masterful balance of dry wit and deranged absurdity that
secretly terrifies me in the still quiet of the night.
The Magic Box
This site is your one-stop source for international video game
news and release dates. Check out their frequently-updated news
listings and find out about the newest developments for all of
the awesome new games coming out in Japan that we'll probably
never get in the US, because we all know that people in America
are only interested in playing Grand Theft Auto and
Over a decade after the tragic cancellation of Mystery Science
Theater 3000, the show's stars are still putting it to bad movies
(and even a handful of good ones) via RiffTrax. These riotous
audio commentary tracks allow Mike Nelson and co. to continue
shredding Hollywood's most shameless attempts at box office
robbery, this time without having to navigate through a sea of
restrictive copyright laws that try to kill the fun. Vive le
So what the hell is a SHMUP, you ask? It's basically a shortened
term for "shoot-em-up", which refers to video games where you...
uh, shoot stuff up. If it fits that description, chances are SHMUPS
will have some info on it. This site archives reviews and
screenshots for everything from classics like Aero Fighters and Gradius, to fan favorites like Bangai-O and the Raiden series, to
highly sought-after gems like Radiant Silvergun. As you might
have guessed, I love shoot-em-up games myself, and so will you
after a short time spent
browsing this extensive fansite.
Socks Make People Sexy
Folks who visit this site expecting to find image galleries
devoted to erotic footwear are in for some major
disappointment... If you're looking for articles and reviews of
video games both recent and retro by various authors collected
on a site with a quirky motif, though, then I heartily recommend
you take a look at SMPS.
Behold, the only Sonic the Hedgehog forum community in existence
that doesn't totally suck! Alright, so maybe it does kind of suck,
but at least it's not because of the awesome staff (of which I
conveniently happen to be a member). Join the boards and participate in fun
discussions about which members are secretly gay, and argue over
which handheld video game system is the best, among other vitally
important topics. We even talk about Sonic the Hedgehog
on rare occasions.
Survival Horror Online
A well-organized site dedicated to survival horror games (surprise!) that's
updated often with the latest news on new and upcoming titles in
the genre. It also features reviews for a few select games, as well as some interesting articles,
multimedia, and a forum.
They also provide plenty of links to sites that offer much more
in-depth coverage for specific games and series. Overall, a
great resource for survival horror enthusiasts.
Television Without Pity
Do you hold a potent, burning hatred deep in your heart for
every shitty sitcom and ill-conceived reality show that has
premiered on TV (read: FOX) in the last few years? These
folks sure do, and they decided it was time to fight back
against all the televised crap. Everything from Gilmore Girls
to The Apprentice to Queer as Folk is fair game for this site's
witty and biting
episode recaps that don't miss a beat. If you like
Rehashed, then chances are TWoP should be right up your alley.
I'll be the first to admit that this comic is greatly
overrated, but that's not to say it doesn't have its moments. VG
Cats is definitely a hit-and-miss series, but when it does
manage to land a hit, it can be one of the funnier webcomics out
there. A solid blend of crude humor and stylish artwork, VG
Cats' high notes are generally good enough to keep you coming back for
more, even after creator Scott Ramsoomair has coughed up a handful of less-than-stellar
strips in a row.
Oh man, this site has some of THE hottest babes I've ever seen,
and for just $14.95 a month you can watch them... um.... No, no wait,
I'm thinking of XXX Entertainment! Whoops! My goodness, how
embarrassing. X-Entertainment is a sort of an 80's pop culture
nostalgia site as well as a blog archive, yet it's
neither... Actually, I don't know what the hell it is. I do know
sharp comedic writing when I see it, though, and this site has
got it in spades. Definitely a great time-killer.
Just in case you happen to be one of those sick weirdoes who likes to
read fanfiction without my witty and insightful commentary, here
are a few links to some websites where you can get your fill of
raw fanfiction horror:
An unaffiliated spin-off of FanFiction.net, this big-kids-only
version was created shortly after FF.net employed its "no adult
content" policies, due to the overwhelming demand for a site on
which people could post their smutty fanfics for public viewing.
If the previous sentence did not make you hate the internet and
all it stands for, then congratulations: You officially have no
The original festering den of sin that started it all. Wander through the
cold, pitch black hallways of this digital shrine to the downfall of
all things good and holy, and listen for the screams of a
thousand innocents as you tread upon haphazardly categorized fanfics
of innumerable shapes and sizes, all of them written in virgin
blood upon brittle parchments made from trees that grow within
graveyards containing corpses of the slain righteous. They also
have a search database and a handy online dictionary... OF EVIL.
Fan Fiction Now
An ideal destination for those of you who need your fanfiction RIGHT THIS
SECOND, FFN offers a typical selection of categories and genres
that you're likely to find on most similar fanfic sites. The
archives are somewhat bare at the present, but they might still
be worth browsing if you're impatient enough that getting
fanfiction NOW is your main concern. Disclaimer: Whether or not
you actually get your fanfiction any faster on this site, I'm
not reading any to find out.
For fuck's sake people, the site is called "FicWad". What do you
think the quality of the content is going to be like?
Alright, so it's
nothing worse than any of the other fanfic archives on this
page, but it sure as hell isn't anything better... Although they do
get extra points for having a section devoted to fanfics based
on real people. Sadly, at the time of this writing, there are 0
stories on the David Bowie page. :(
Freedom of Speech FanFiction Archive
When our founding fathers sat down to write the First Amendment
of the US Constitution, I'm sure a fanfiction archive full of
glorified violence and gay smut is exactly what they had in
mind. I feel so damn patriotic I could vomit! Be warned that
this is one of those "anything goes" fanfic sites, so don't be
surprised if you run into some majorly disturbing content during
Whip out those shovels and pickaxes kids, there's fanfiction in
them thar hills! "Media Miner" is a very appropriate title for
this site, since you'll have to endure days of exhausting work
digging and sifting through all the hardened layers of shit
found on this site before you ever encounter any of the precious
few stories actually worth reading.
By now, you've got to start wondering just how damn many adult fanfiction sites the internet
needs. It might seem like there were enough as it is, but obviously someone thought it needed at
least one more, because here we have SlashFanfiction.com, a sizeable archive specializing in
stories about real-life celebrities (read: people who were in
the Lord of the Rings movies) and various fictional
character pairings, especially gay couples. If that doesn't
sound like a barrel of fun, it's probably because you haven't
suffered repeated blows to the head like the people responsible
for creating this site.
Link to Project AFTER
If you want to put a link to PA on your own webpage
(perhaps out of pity or to fill space), here are some stylin' banners
and icons I designed to ensure that your links page will look
nice and classy:
