Daily sites?

I very much enjoy my daily word and poem sites. What other daily life-enriching, mind-expanding sites (or email lists or similar) exist?

DailyLit will email (or RSS) a chapter (or more, or less) a day of a book.

I like GOOD; they have an email newsletter as well, once or twice a day about awesome things (bike vending machines! California taking steps to outlaw styrofoam! guerrilla pie charts!).

My fave is KEXP's Song of the Day - free .mp3 download on a cool and (to me, ususally) new band. KEXP is the way I discover new music so I can use those brain cycles for something else.

I like Library Link of the Day. If you're vaguely interested in libraries but don't really follow any library blogs or that sort of thing, it's a one-link daily thing you might be interested in. I read a bunch of other library sites, but this one has been consistently good for almost a decade. Also +1 to KEXP and APOD both of which are consistently good.

Writer's Almanac. Every day is 5 minutes of a poem and some information about mostly literary events tied to the date.
