11-02-11 - I need

I need some light entertainment that won't actively damage my brain.

Ideally like a web feed or something so I get a few minutes of mild diversion every day.

Nothing serious or political or overly technical that will take real concentration or make me angry.

But also nothing that will insult my intelligence or subtly put filth into my brain.

As an example of bad ones : I rather enjoy architecture and design, but I find almost all the design blogs are way too consumerist, pushing the constant purchasing of new crap just because it's the new thing, and that makes me ill ; another example is my current addiction, which is car news sites, which subconsciously fills my brain with all kinds of horrible ideas, like drifting is cool, I should make my exhaust louder, and so on.

Add a few illustration/design sites to your RSS reader; it does for me exactly what you want it to do for you. Here are some of my favorites:

A Beast Every Week: http://beasteveryweek.com/feed-rss.php?url=beasteveryweek

Colossal: http://thisiscolossal.com/feed/

Drawn: http://feeds.feedburner.com/drawn

A few select webcomics (such as Nedroid) can do the trick too.

http://www.darkroastedblend.com/ maybe you'll spend your 15mins/day distraction all on a Monday, but it'll lighten your life and it looks pretty.

Playing with this is stimulating and relaxing. I like picking out the components that are contained in the color scheme.
