Here we'll show a small collection of useful, useless and funny or whacko sites on the Web which are always worth a visit on rainy days. Enjoy!!
iFilm is an Internet movie guide and a great site to visit for what's new in theaters, good to watch on video and DVD, Hollywood gossip and headlines, and to just learn about movies in general (users can read and submit their own reviews). But IFILM is also a movie-on-demand site, where visitors can watch shorts and movies online.
go there ...
Check out the "All Online Movies" or "Latest Shorts" sections to search for the film of your choice. There's a synopsis of the movie and a link to where you can register and view the movie. And you can even submit your own script or film. All you need is a computer and some popcorn.
It's a comedy club right there in your computer. Slap your knees to audio clips of some of the hottest comedians out there just doing their thing. Laugh.com's got good roots in funny business. Its founding shareholders include Milton Berle, Red Buttons, George Carlin, Phyllis Diller, Rich Little, and Jonathan Winters.
You can listen audio clips of those legends along with up-and-coming stars. The clips are broken out by genre (Money, Politics, Sports, Phone Pranks, to name a few) and then by Clean Bits and Dirty Bits, so the faint of heart are not offended.
Please note: if you visit Laugh.com during the workday, you'll need to be aware of co-workers' stares because you'll be laughing out loud right there in your cubicle without realizing it.
At Dotcomix you'll find 3D cartoons that bring edgy modern comic strips to life. After you download their small free player software, you can watch Dilbert walk and talk right on your screen. Also check out other strips like Fashionista that satirizes the public's fixation on beauty, Mr. Cranky who never likes any of the movies he reviews, and Dr. Science who offers sarcastic replies to viewers' science questions. The Sunday funny papers never looked so flat!
