Lileks.com

The web site of author and newspaper columnist James Lileks, “Your Source for Defenseless Ephemera Since 1996.” Lileks started his “Daily Bleat” in 1997, well before the term “blog” swept in. And he has a podcast (gotta keep trendy, yaknow?) But the part I like best is the Institute of Official Cheer (“Where the past is brought back to life, and promptly beaten to death again.”) It includes the Gallery of Regrettable Food and Interior Desecrations. There are also interesting sections on kitschy memorabilia, like motel and diner postcards, matchbook covers, old newspaper ads, and the Engraveyard — old money from around the world. It’s the kind of garbage I’d put on the web if I wasn’t already so danged busy.
