What's popular back home?


Fall is here and I need to catch up with what's going on in the English speaking world, especially with the Fall TV season just beginning.

Here are a few of my choices of links to keep up with what's going on if that's your thing:

Bittorrent
http://www.mininova.org/cloud
Find out what most people are looking for in downloads on bittorrent networks. It's not a bad way to know what's hot since the greater searches are written in bolder type.

I usually use Mininova to find my favorite TV shows and use µTorrent to download since it is a small, easy-to-use client.

Music
http://www.google.com/trends/music
As part of Google trends, Google talk keeps track of what people are listening to. You can view by various musical styles.

Movies
http://www.imdb.com/Top/
What are the top box-office movies. Not a great indicator of quality though... You can also research movies by credits and see what movies are in production.
http://www.rottentomatoes.com/
A summary of what critics are saying about movies that are out.
http://www.apple.com/trailers/
See the trailers before anyone else does for upcoming Xmas and summer movies.

Radio
http://www.shoutcast.com/
Listen to radio all over the world with Winamp. Search by musical styles or even comedy and talk shows.

If you have any other ways to keep on top of what's going on back home in your country and care to share it, send the links in!
