Illuminated Site of the Week
Every day we post new news to the Daily Illuminator. Usually this is SJ Games news, but occasionally we like to spotlight some of the more interesting, weird, or otherwise Illuminated sites elsewhere on the web. So we've started the Illuminated Site of the Week listing, to showcase those other sites. We even have a little logo for the winners, if they feel like adding it to their page . . . but unlike other Cool-this or Top-that sites, we're stingy with our awards . . . we don't give them out to every site under the sun, and if you steal the logo and you didn't properly win it, we'll send the Men in Black after you . . .

February 19, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: Delicious, Nutritious, Overtly Vicious
Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch's video studio Rocket Jump
is responsible for some memorable content. For example, remember commercials from the 90s? Here's betting you don't recall them quite like this
. (And if you don't want the kids recalling them in the middle of the night for the next week, steer them away from it.)

February 6, 2015: Illuminated Site of the Week: The Cat's Eee-Yow
Horror writer H.P. Lovecraft felt the most merciful thing in the world was that men couldn't correlate its contents. Having your cat do it for you doesn't seem like much of an improvement. His cognitive abilities are limited to say the least, and he'll probably bat at the tentacles of monsters with his claws when they come for him. But why not let him take all the chances exploring the darkest areas of this veil of tears? If you're willing to venture into Tumblr
- surely as maddening an experience as any Howard Philips could have imagined - you can see how observations on the Mythos jibe when paired with cat pictures at H.P. Lovecat

December 3, 2011: Illuminated Site of the Week: Bared-Bones Conspiracy
Pay no attention to the people who say that evolution isn't real or that men once rode dinosaurs: David Wozney explains how the mighty lizards may never have existed at all in Dinosaurs: Science Or Science Fiction. Using everything from poor judgment to plaster casts, have paleontologists constructed in their own minds (and in several museum displays) flights of fancy that do a disservice to real science? Have carbon dating and fossil studies been a waste of precious decades? He even goes to the trouble of offering alternative theories about possible mentions of same in the Bible, should those be muddying the, uhm . . . historic? . . . waters for anyone. If true, it may represent one of the greatest conspiracy frauds ever perpetrated on mankind - certainly the biggest one built from chicken bones, anyway.

September 17, 2011: Illuminated Site of the Week: Love Never Dies
To know the true meaning of love, the sort of affection between two people who will do anything for each other, one need only hear the touching story of Juliana and Benjamin
. Many of us face tests in the early stages of a relationship, but their tale is one of perseverance, trust, and bravery. Something this undying inspires us all.
