The pick of my recent browsing:
Scary Go Round is a British webcomic that’s drily humorous and gothic in the Edgar Allen Poe sense of the world (rather than that fashion that relies heavily on black). Try the start of the current story.
If, like me, you aren’t in with the cool kids, then you’ll find the Urban Dictionary helpful. It’s a bit more up-to-date than Oxford.
Gode Cookery is a compilation of mediæval recipes. Paradoxically, most of them seem quite adventurous compared to the combinations of ingredients that we’d consider normal today.
There is a massive archive of EPS versions of almost every company logo imaginable at Logotype.
Finally, This Is Broken takes a somewhat schadenfreudlichlook at design failures in our everyday environment. In their words, it’s “[a] new project to make businesses more aware of their customer experience, and how to fix it.”
I’ll put these onto my links page shortly. Perhaps.
 Trivia note: There was a Japanese author who was so enamoured by the works of Poe that he adopted the nom-de-plume of Edogawa Rampo (say it quickly out loud) for his own mystery novels. His work is actually very good.
