Need a ch-ch-ch-change

I've become bored of digg, slate and reddit. I'd like some substitutes (but not too close of substitutes that I get quickly bored again).

I'm going to keep slashdot and metafilter in heavy rotation because the signal/noise ratios are pretty good. I'm open to any suggestions, but it needs to be SFW.

wikitalk.com has a portal, as well as a browser plugin that makes another attempt at the comments-attachted-to-website-without-comment-feature.

A&L is cool, but the stories seem a little too familiar. Popurls is rss heaven, and it used to be my homepage. Maybe I should add it in the mix again.

As for Neatorama, Mental Floss and Morning News: brilliant!

seconding popurls, you can always make a igoogle page, and then there's boingboing and techmeme

BuzzFeed - can get a bit pop culture heavy
The New Yorker - good for occasional deep reading
Your Daily Awesome - photos, illustrations, and videos
FFFOUND! - like del.icio.us for cool photos and illustrations (occasional art nudity)

Thanks everyone for the input so far, and I'll be checking back on the thread from time to time (as I'm sure many other people will too).

I don't know how he does it, but kottke turns up some real gems.

Try Hacker News (previously Startup News). Reminiscent of what Reddit used to be.
