I want to think about something new!

Looking for quality, regularly-updated web content as an alternative to the potpourri discussion-based sites that usually make up my day online.

You know how there's quality TV versus regular TV? Let's just say I'm tired of the Two and a Half Men internet and don't know how to change the channel. I'm not looking for thinkpieces on internet topics du jour, clickbait content, stuff I might see on the news, outragefilter, art by artists doing art about themselves, or anyone's social media profile. No Reddits, no Gawkers, and yes, my Metafilter quota is already filled ;)
The fewer spaces for discussion, the better. Perhaps I'm looking for short fiction or maybe someone posting bits of classical writing on a blog. Maybe it's someone who curates a list of the most obscure and interesting Wikipedia articles. Maybe it's a historical photos collection that gets updated on the regular. I'd gladly pay for access to the right quality content. Any suggestions? Do you read a site that somehow stands apart from the rest of the internet?
