TV Tropes Wiki
A wiki describing various narrative devices or patterns in fiction, with both descriptions of these "tropes" and also pages for a particular work, listing the tropes it exemplifies. Written in a light and humorous style, and is a lot of fun. WARNING! May eat up inordinate amounts of free time, and cause you to start hanging lampshades on everything.
Rotten Tomatoes (Movie Reviews)
Comprehensive movie reviews combining together many critics to give an overall "Tomatometer" of whether a movie is any good. Note: May not be accurate if your tastes don't match with critics' tastes.
Phil Tulga - Music Through The Curriculum
My dad's website, including information on his elementary school assemblies in the greater Sacramento area, and many free educational activities linking music to math, science, and language arts.
Sarah Tulga .com
My sister's website, has detailed information on the science of sound behind homemade instruments.
Gaslamp/Steampunk fantasy set in an alternate universe where technically gifted mad scientists "sparks" vie for domination of Europe with Science! A highly complex plot and interesting characters told in graphic novel style - highly recommended!
Buck Godot Zap Gun For Hire [Finished]
Science fiction comic about a private detective/bodyguard for hire, mainly located on the lawless planet of New Hong Kong, and later on the mega-space-station, Gallimaufry Station. Also very good, includes some shorter stories, then an 8-part arc on the Gallimaufry.

A science fiction story about mad science as a memetic disease, and the Vorstellen cop and Martian psychologist tasked to find him and prevent him from taking over the world.
