I always love it when I come across a neat website, or someone tells me to check one out. We all get bored at times and there is an almost infinite amount of things to do on the internet if you just know where to look. Here are some fun and useful ones to visit the next time you get bored.

This is a great place to get free signed photos of your favorite stars. Studio Fan Mail is used by stars who hire them to take care of fan mail and photo requests and the best part is that it can all be done through email so save a trucking fee and postage. Email anyone from Jennifer Aniston to Henry Winkler request an autographed photo and sit back and wait while they send it to you in the mail (they pay postage), fun to collect. Besides who doesn't want to open the mailbox and find a signed photo of LeVar Burton!! They do take about 4-6 weeks to come.

2.) LastFM
This is a wonderful site to bookmark on your computer. My pal Leah told me about this. If you are clueless like me when it comes to new music or bands, this site will help. If you hear a new band and want to check them out you just type the name in and a photo, song samples, discography, videos, it all pops up. Not only that but you can search similar artists and it will uncannily pull up a list of artists you already like and didn't know you like. Another neat feature is that if you scroll down it rates their songs by popularity which helps you hear the best stuff first.

3.) Zabasearch
Want to find anyone? Type in what you know and it will find someone's name, address, birthdate, phone number. It even pulls up a little funky map to show you where they live. Great for finding someone you lost track of. Or just for spying on people.

4.) Good Things Should Never End
A never ending website. Scroll down a twisting rainbow and interact with cool silouhetted characters who talk to you and play games. You can click on all kinds of little objects and watch them animate. Get happy. Also you can take little items off the screen and it gives you a code to put them on your Myspace or Facebook. Hard to explain. Fun.

5.) Band Name Generator / BabyZone Name Generator
Having trouble coming up with a name for your new band or baby? These just keep generating weird names.
