While the PopCult e-mail bins are often filled to bursting with letters, most of them are missives from anxious money launderers in Zimbabwe. But we also receive many suggestions for websites to check out. While these sites often prove to be interesting in one way or another, most don't quite make it as "Website of the Week" material. I am ever searching for the right combination of graphics, content, appeal, uniqueness, and pop-culture relevancy, and that isn't easy to pull off. So, while many of these sites are indeed worthy in one or more aspects, I must beg the forgiveness of their webmasters for not writing them up.

But let the readers decide, I say! Here are the site suggestions as I received them. Hit those links and tell me what you think. Whichever site gets the most requests from PopCult readers will be designated the People's Choice Website of the Week with the same glorious Q&A interview. Which site would you like to learn more about?

I saw your fun site. . . you might like to check out ours at . . . www.doubledavenger.com

'The Double-D Avenger' is essentially the new Russ Meyer 'reunion movie' starring Kitten Natividad, Haji, Raven De La Croix, and Forrest J Ackerman.

It's been a success on VHS and DVD, and is now one of the top 20 'cult movie' sellers on Amazon.com.

(Please note that 'The Double-D Avenger' is a Russ Meyer star 'reunion movie.' It is not directed by Mr. Meyer, nor associated with his company RM Films Int.)

Why hello their fellow Pop Culture Junkie. My fetish is not books or magazines, but locations. I travel around the USA and Canada and stop at all those places your parents would never stop at, regardless of how much you screamed from the back seat, like the biggest ball of twine, or the worlds largest ketchup bottle.

Stop by www.amuckinamerica.com take a look around and let me know what you think.

In the '80s, dark and mature graphic literature thrilled North American readers eager for something to reflect the more serious tone of modern life. Work like Alan Moore’s WATCHMEN, Frank Miller’s DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, and Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN challenged the common view that ‘comics’ were just for kids.

Now, the web offers the opportunity for the medium to evolve. Enter "cinematic literature" — enter BROKEN SAINTS.

Hope you enjoy it!

Just suggesting a site that might qualify as a pop culture item.

It's www.daddyagogo.com.

Please check it out and listen to some of the songs and read along with the lyrics on the music page. Pop culture references abound, like in songs "I Wanna Be An Action Figure" and "Nice Mare on Elm Street" and "Guitars on Mars" and "Out In The Garage" which got airtime on Dr. Demento recently.

A writer referred to my songs as Bullwinkle-esque, and I took that as a pretty nice thing to say.

Thanks
