George recently pointed out one of our Short Bus Friends from the right-hand sidebar.  Just a reminder that this exists.

I updated the URL for Girls are Pretty and did a survey of the others.  The following sites have ceased adding new posts (for at least a year, sometimes far longer):
Courthouse Confessions 2009
Curdled 2013
Don't Even Reply 2013
Jim Goad 2015
List of the Day 2015
Postcards From Yo Momma 2013
Procatinator (all content removed)
Rotten ?
Uncle Jay Explains 2014
WFMU's Beware of the Blog 2015
Whore Church 2014

I suggest that they should be removed from the sidebar, unless they are considered to be worthy of permanent preservation.  Please make your case if you have one.

The following are also inactive, but I believe were kept on deliberately:
Dial A Nihilist (was it O+ or opsec who ran this?)
Perry Bible Fellowship (general awesomeness)

The following sites are either unreachable or produce an error.  I have no idea how long this may have been going on.
Ectoplasmosis
Unique Daily
Wittenburg Door

I suggest removal for those as well.

Anyway, whether these all get removed or not, feel free to suggest any other sites.

OrangePlus. Yuh, thank you, square. I'm sure that was a demoralizing chore. I'll wait for responses and cull the list if you don't get there first.

I can't believe I've never seen LiarTown USA before:

I've seen some of the images here and there.  There is genius here.  And madness.

Agreed - great find.

Much like popurls.com, but I don't see a customize option for readspike.

Actually, we should all be so lucky as to have that as the most significant story to greet us in the evening. My news is more horrifying by several orders of magnitude.
