Post subject:  Your sources?

So, as we're getting things up and running, I figured we might want to start by listing some of our favorite sources for media on the internet.

My question: What torrent, streaming and other media sites do you use?

I currently use:

tvtorrents for TV torrents for porn torrents for miscellaneous torrents

If you have others, please post them, and note if they're invite only and such like.

Also, does anyone know of any sites that are particularly good for comics or books?

The Pirate Bay crew is bringing back, reportedly soon. I never got around to using suprnova in the past, though, so I'm not sure how much of a boon this will be.

That should get the ball rolling a bit.

I really just use for pretty much anything--although I do download a lot of comics from it. Right now, I've downloading seasons 2-5 of The Muppet Show. I'm seeding Watchmen and V for Vendetta, both of which I got there.

I have a few places I look for ebooks. I usually use Google, but when that fails: is a filter for Google that uses specific operators based on what you're looking for. It's great for finding Linux books.
Fictionbook.lib has a decent collection, but it's a grab-bag of English and Russian, so you often don't know which language a particular book is until you look at it.
GreyLib is also pretty damn good, and most of it's in English, from what I've seen. If the Язык (language) is listed as Английский (English), you're good to go. is good, too. All the English is at top. They must not enforce copyrights over there or something.
Scans Daily LJ community is pretty good for just finding out comics that might be a good read. They rarely (if ever) post a full comic, but it gives decent highlights of old and new stuff if you're ever stuck deciding on what to get.

Vid2c isn't too bad for videos. It seems to be a video site aggregator, so you'll get a lot of different video UIs from show to show, but sometimes the external sites will have pulled the vid, so it's a bit iffy at times.

When all else fails, eMule often has hard-to-find shit. I use it as a last resort, because the download times suck.

I've been using Isohunt for my Xena fix for a while, and it works pretty well. Shareaza is alright for music, but the bittorrent part of it doesn't seem to work on this computer. It worked on my other one, so I blame Vista. Everything else I use has already been mentioned.

Yes, I pretty much just rely on tv-links, like Inky.
It has the whole Monthy Python TV show listing, plus John Cleese's eulogy for Graham Chapman.

All the movies being split into parts is a pain, but one easily overcome with a shrug and the memory that it's all very, very free.

For downloading purposes I usually rely on veoh.

I just looked at Fictionbook again after a few months, and it looks like they got rid of all their English books. So fuuuck them. Damn shame, though. They had a good collection.

I just ran across this while looking for a Hellboy Sancho mentioned. It looks like it uses shit like Rapidshare and similar timed-for-free-download sites, which kind of sucks, but it's better than nothing. Woosh!

Torrentspy is apparently blocking US clients from search now, so you have to proxy up.

Suprnova is back up, and seems to contain the DCP comic packs I've been getting my WWH fix from. The Canadian proxy I used to watch the Stanley Cup Playoffs doesn't seem to function with Torrentspy's search. Thanks to The Pirate Bay, I won't need it to!

TVLinks is my method of choice as well.

For everything that has a broken link on that, I use DailyMotion, who, for some reason, aren't as good as YouTube at removing stuff.

I recommend Underground-Gamer.

Another invite-only, but it's got damn near anything to do with games, provided they're for systems that are no longer supported or available.

Even includes old TV series based on games.

I'm an avid user of Demonoid which seems to have pretty much anything I'm looking for when I have anything I want to find. It's invite only most of the days, opening up to anybody on the occasional Friday. Feel free to PM me your email and I will send an invite.

I was randomly clicking a few of my old links, and ran across some more book sites.

Small but good assortment of books:

Cyberpunk books:

Really old Kids' books in image formats:

Bunch of old books:

Uses rapidshare, but a good selection if you choose wisely (or have a rapidshare account):

I just ran across this. It looks like a good place for finding stuff.

Lyssa showed me this hot pirate action:

Apparently, it's linking videos from DivX's Stage6 site, which might not last long, so go watch something awesome while you can.
